They must be adopted together. She is in a different orphanage because of her age, but in the same region, pretty close to each other. It will be the same court for both children.

He changed 3 orphanages already and this summer he will be transferred again because of his school age; he is scheduled to be transferred before school starts in September. Where is he going is NOT good! He needs OUT!! He is a very good and friendly boy and needs a family asap!

From a family who met Cody spring 2014:  we were able to spend a good amount of time with him. He was delightful! He loved holding our hands when we went for walks outside, and he loved playing ball with my husband. He seemed healthy, smart, well-behaved, and kind to the other kids. We often saw him acting kind of like a big brother, helping some of the others with things like zipping their jackets. I think he would do great in a family with other kids. We were sad to say goodbye to him, and he asked us when his mom and dad were coming.

He helps the old men do some gardening, he is very well potty-trained, he eats well, won’t get the table messy, and knows to change the slippers while come into the room.

Pearson

30520132428pearson-2015-croppedBoy, born Dec. 2004
Moderate mental delays, possible FAS

Listed: May 14, 2015

From a family who met him in July 2015:  Pearson is a Lost Boy. He lives in a horrible institution.  Pearson is nonverbal. I only heard him laugh. I never heard other sounds; that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t make them, I just never heard them while I was there. Pearson picks up quickly on things, like making a ball light up, or scribbling on the magna-doodle. He has a wonderful smile, and LOVED making his blue spiky ball light up. It is not in his file, but judged on behavior and facial features, we are pretty sure that he has FAS. We were not able to adopt Pearson because we have small children in our home, and also another son with major needs. Pearson is a beautiful boy, but he lives in a place that chews the boys up and spits them out. He was taken into government care as a baby, and has been there since. He most likely entered this institution when he was 5 or 6. That is a very long time to be neglected. It is a very long time to suffer the boredom and trauma of this place. He is very easily overstimulated. Every few minutes he is overwhelmed and his behavior reflects that. He needs constant supervision, and a home without small children. While he is very sweet and likes to throw balls, he also has a tendency to run away, break things, pull hair, head butt, spit, etc. The more he is worked with, the better his tolerance to stimulation will be. Someone without small children, and someone experienced with institutional behaviors would be best for Pearson. He is a beautiful, broken boy, who needs a mama and daddy to help him calm down, to play ball with him, and to love him and put his pieces back together that the institution broke.”

From a family who met him in Fall 2013:  Pearson is doing so good!! He is precious and sweet! I saw him from a distance every day. The first time, he was with a group of boys having their picture taken in the fall leaves. He always did what the nanny told him to. He walks very well, and he likes holding the nannies hands. My favorite day was when I walked past their group and he was right in front of me on the sidewalk, and before the nanny could move him, I bent down and in Russian told him how sweet he was. He took my face in both of his hands, and pulled me down so our foreheads were touching, and just stared in my eyes. I kissed his cheek, and his whole face lit up!! And he has the most adorable splatter of freckles! He is smaller than I would have thought too.

Casey,the younger girl was born in 2008 and has no SNs, just some kind of development delay. She is smart and active, participate in all orphanage performances. She has now been transferred as well.

Her older sister, Lynn, was transferred from her orphanage due to her age and in August she will be transferred again. She was born in 2006. By orphanage social worker her older sister is VERY smart and beautiful, no SNs, very active in all performances. She has now been transferred again

Both girls need a family asap!!!  These 2 siblings are to be adopted together for sure.

They have an older brother born in 2004. He is in the special school orphanage and has severe mental delays. 

If a family decides to adopt all 3 children it will be great!!! If they want only two younger siblings they are to be approved for 3 children and to get referral to meet ALL 3 siblings. Then if they decide not to adopt the oldest one we will do the best to “separate” them. I think it is possible, but we cannot guarantee it for sure.  They have a younger brother as well, and he has already been adopted.

Listed: May 2, 2015

NEW PHOTO!  Stephen is such a treasure. We want a family for him so desperately. He is about the size of a 6 or 7 year old- just an itty bitty thing. The nannies say that he is blind, but we believe he can at least see shadows. He always wants to be near the window- especially on sunny days. There are two places you can usually find Stephen- either standing under the window at the end of the hall, or sitting on a chair in the kitchen, waiting for the next meal.

Stephen is extremely sensory-seeking and needs to feel the world around him. He loves to spin, flap his arms, spin some more, run, spin, you get the idea. He has absolutely no sensory input at the institution- so he has to create it himself.

He does not speak and displays many institutional behaviors. He is NOT harmful or aggressive to himself or others. He is absolutely adorable and has so.much.potential. He is more than a diagnosis.

From a family who adopted in 2016:
I did not personally meet him, but he was in my son’s institution when we were there just two months ago. The village where this institution is located is small and very safe. The hotel has modern amenities and is owned by an English speaking local who will take very good care of you and feed you very well! The locals are friendly and helpful to Americans. The institution is a quick and easy walk from the hotel. We were the second family to ever adopt from this institution and the judge in this region waived the ten day wait for both of us.    I would be more than happy to talk to those interested in adopting from this institution. We had an excellent experience here!

Listed: April 13, 2015

From a family who has met him many times:
This boy is absolutely exploding with energy. He’s really unsteady on his feet so he’s constantly roaming the halls half-running/half-falling. He loves to touch and craves physical contact. Sometimes we can get a glorious moment of quiet when he will just let us hold him and wrap our arms around him. He really does love that and it does wonders for his brain development. It’s just a matter of getting him still enough to realize he likes it!

He loves any kind of sensory play, like feeling the dirt outside and holding his hand under a running faucet. He likes to sit in a wheelchair and be pushed around, even though he doesn’t need a wheelchair! The best thing we can do for him is take him on walks. He likes to be outside so sometimes we just get him outside and follow wherever he leads. He doesn’t have any words, but when he gets excited he gives his signature shriek to let us know he’s excited. He needs a family who can provide him with a lot of structure. Right now he is constantly seeking sensory input, and getting into a lot of trouble doing that. We believe he would thrive within the structure and love of a family.

Max

Maxmax-updateBoy, born 2009

congenital heart disease, ventricular septal defect in the phase of closure, nebtal delay, nanism

Probable FAS (cautionary disclosure….facial features and other medical complications consistent with this condition).

Update from a family who met him in April 2016:
The director was encouraging us to consider (Max) for adoption too and really wants to see him in a family. He was transferred into the institution with our son. He was very small for his age, (maybe the size of an American 3 year old) and very active. He reminded me of a small chipmunk because he kept running around the director’s office and poking his nose into everything!!! He was SO curious! I saw him get cookies off the director’s table and he was able to chew and swallow, without difficulty, though he does tend to overload his mouth. (maybe he is afraid they will take the food away?) He drinks normally from a cup.

He understood speech addressed to him and appropriately made the correct animal sound when asked what the dog, cow, etc says. He also knew placement of his body parts. (Eyes, ears…) I did not observe him speak except for animal sounds but gestured appropriately when he needed his needs met.

He does tend to ignore redirection, but does it with a mischievous gleam in his eye and, due to him responding appropriately to questions, there is no doubt in my mind he understands, just doesn’t want to listen! After all, the director’s large office was a fun, new place to explore!

I saw him swinging in a swing and he seems fine physically. His movement (walking and running) is very good. He is not overly affectionate but tolerates affection well. (Director was lifting him/giving him hugs)

This is a nice institution to adopt from. It is an easy walk from the hotel and the hotel director speaks English and is very welcoming and accommodating to American guests. They will overfeed you!  There are many shops, parks, and markets within easy walking distance of the hotel and institution.  Unfortunately, at this institution, the disabled adult men are lumped in with the little boys. Max needs out now! He has amazing potential with a family!

From the orphanage: The girl needs a family asap. She is a kind child surviving with no parents. She requires much individual care because her educational ability is very low. In her orphanage she does not follow instructions; her vocabulary is very poor; she is severe speech delayed. She does not like to play with other children in her orphanage, she is on her own. She wants more attention than her caregivers are able to provide her with.

This young lady is very sweet! She is in school and just finished the 3rd level. Betsy likes to color, read, run, swing on the playground, and dance. When we were able to talk to her she seemed slightly shy but very calm and gentle. Betsy is articulate and seems only slightly delayed. She and my daughter hugged and cried when they had to say good-bye. Betsy really wants to come to America. She would be a wonderful addition to any family!

Brandi

I have a miracle makerGuardian Angelbrandi-2016Girl, Born August 2007
brain malformations, bilateral hearing loss,significant cognitive delays, heart condition strabismus, anemia

NEW PHOTO!!   Brandi is a beautiful 9 year old girl. She is listed with bilateral hearing loss, but can definitely hear, as she will turn around and look for the person calling her name, and does respond to commands given if she chooses (if she doesn’t, she screams/attempts to run/swats at the caregiver). Cognitively, she is very delayed, more like a toddler, in ability to understand what’s going on around her, and in her responses, and appropriateness. She also has strabismus in both eyes, and has both a heart condition and anemia. She does NOT have CP, nor microcephaly. She does have brain malformations, significant developmental delays, and many stimming behaviors that are typical of lower functioning autism. She is completely nonverbal.brandidatabase-1

Families interested in Brandi should be aware that she appears to have autism, and that it impacts her significantly. She is a “runner” and will bolt and run unless contained or restrained and potential families need to be aware that this is common in autism, and that they will need to take appropriate measures to keep her safe in a home and family. She has a history of aggression when changes occur, such as a move, or unexpected event, which include biting peers and adults, and she struggled for at least a year after her last orphanage change four years ago, but is doing better now. However, as many with autism thrive on routine and predictability, families need to be aware that she may handle a transition poorly, especially at first. She has excellent mobility, and is very typically sized for a normal 7 year old in weight and height, and when she resists, it is challenging for a grown woman to hold her back. She has been in a school for the deaf, however, she knows no sign language nor does she read lips. She is very much in her own world in many ways. She enjoys music and will sometimes clap, but remains disconnected from the group and does not interact with adults (was not seen with peers).

Brandi attempts to smell/lick everything that is handed to her and when she realizes it isn’t food, she is not typically interested. The nannies report that she has an excellent appetite, and that she enjoys eating. She stims by rocking, throwing herself back and forth, sucking all four fingers on her hand, grunting, and moaning/shrieking. She walks with a lurching gallop. She flaps her hands often. A potential family should be aware that she has no awareness of danger, no fear of strangers and is very much like a very young child emotionally and cognitively, but physically is strong and very mobile. She currently takes psychiatric medications to assist in sleep and behavior.

She is a lovely little girl, with beautiful blond hair and clear complexion. She is in a good orphanage where she is well cared for. Families need to research autism, and be comfortable and familiar with caring safely for a child with the issues mentioned above, in order to provide Brandi with a safe, loving home.

Esme

EsmeGirl, born March 2009  (previously listed as Victoria)
CO-A

Listed: Feb 4, 2015

Esme’s diagnosis was previously reported as Down syndrome, but it appears that is incorrect according to her file.

The real diagnosis is Ritscher–Schinzel 3C syndrome. It is a rare condition, whose symptoms include heart defects, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism. The report also states that when she was 15 months old she had a surgery to correct a congenital heart defect (cardiopathy). In April 2013 she had a correction of her AV fistula in her right wrist. In July 2013 she had a correction of her blocked tear duct. She has been treated for asthma.

Sweet Esme is 5 years old; she loves to play with dolls. She is a sweet girl who is kind, affectionate, funny, and lovable. She has been living in a foster home since she was 2-months-old, and is very affectionate with her foster family. She loves playing with her foster siblings, and gets along very well with the children closest to her age. Her foster mother describes her as a happy, obedient, sociable child, and they enjoy having her in their home.

Because Esme has Syndrome 3C, a condition that is characterized by cardiac malformations, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism (3C’s), her development is not up to age level. She has been going to therapy to develop her speech skills. She also has Enuresis, which affects her bladder and urination control.

Esme interacts well with other children and loves to watch TV and play. She can eat, brush her teeth, and dress herself independently. She loves doing her homework and schoolwork, and can concentrate on a task or an activity. She is an extremely outgoing child, who is respectful and always follows directions.

Esme is looking for a forever family that will provide her with love and affection, kindness and guidance. She will bring lots of laughter, many smiles, and tons of hugs to your home!

Joshua #5-20

Joshua2

Joshua 2015Boy, age: 7
Moderate mental delay; significant disturbance in the behavior requiring care and treatment; slightly hyperkinetic behavior; strabismus (wears glasses)

Joshua spent the first 6 years of his life in an orphanage surrounded by children much younger than him. As a result, he was not held to age appropriate expectations. He has recently been moved to a group home with children in his age range and significant improvements in his development have already been observed.

While living in his previous environment, he was often bribed to get compliance. As a result, he learned that if he acted badly, someone would give him a “present” in order to get him to behave. This has resulted in him not understanding how to regulate his behavior and in him having negative behaviors simply for the sake of getting a “reward” in order to get him to act appropriately. He needs a family that is willing to provide a structured family environment with consistency in teaching him how to build his own personal boundaries, how to respect other people’s personal boundaries, how to appropriately regulate his emotions, and how to appropriately respond and handle his emotions.

The staff at the group home HAS seen progress in the short time that he has been in their facility. They are working with him on learning to take care of himself, follow the routines of the group home, and how to deal with his emotions when he is upset or frustrated. He is an active little boy who loves to play outside and listen to music. At this time, he prefers the attention of the adults over interacting with other children, but this is also a learned behavior that the staff is working to address.

Observations from someone who has met him:
Joshua does have behavior issues, and needs a family who can be FIRM and invest the time needed with him.  He should be the youngest child in a family, so he doesn’t inadvertently hurt younger children.  It is possible that he is on the Autism spectrum, but autism is not in his official file.  A family who met him is willing to talk to families who are seriously considering adopting Joshua.

Photos and videos from January 2015 are available through the agency.

The nannys love her, but she needs more than they can give. I am not sure if the move was hard on her or what but she just rocked and rocked.

Diagnoses: deep mental delay. Cerebral paralysis- double spastic form, microcephaly. Strabismus, divergent squint, and Optic atrophy. First degree anemia.

Listed: October 4, 2012

Sweet little Shayla could tremendously use a family and medical attention to help her thrive. She has already been living in this orphanage for 3 years and risks soon having to be transferred to a place where adoption will be next to impossible.

Her speech is not well developed, she holds toys in her hands for brief periods of time (but she sure does love to hold stuffed animals!), she has a reaction when you say her name but she is not able to communicate back but she smiles. She walks with support- can”t walk independently. Children in this orphanage need families! They do not receive enough interaction/therapy to help them thrive. They are seen as hopeless but we know that is not true!

Update June 2013:
This is not a great picture [on the right] but she would NOT sit still. She was wanting to move!! She thought it was so funny and would not stop laughing and rocking back and forth about the camera. The nannys also were laughing with her- her laugh and happiness is very infectious.

Lauren is a super-sweet and active little girl.  She is very social and affectionate, and will do well in a family setting.

As with all children living in these difficult conditions,  this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger.  It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child.    These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

Update June 2013:  Alexey has a very big sweet tooth!  He would not put down his lollipop to take a picture- when asked he told us politely “No, thank you.” 🙂

Miss Nadene has regressed greatly in the orphanage. She has bad memory and attention. She is very shy and quiet. She needs help often but she can walk with support. She could use the love of a family to really blossom!

Look at Delta- isn’t she beautiful?! She is SO, SO sweet- we gave the kids lollipops and she grabbed my hand and squeezed it and said thank you. She is very “with it”- the kids danced for me and she was one of the very few that was on beat! She is able to follow directions and imitate. I have a video but for privacy reasons I can’t put it on her profile but if a family is considering her I would be happy to share!

Justine

Girl, Born June 2001
From her medical records: congenital microcephaly, autism

Listed: August 7, 2010

Justine is a pretty girl with dark hair and eyes. She is fully mobile and active. Her face bears features of FAS, but this is not documented and is only a cautionary disclosure.

As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

She is delayed but she tries very hard to keep up with everything. She is super, super smiley- like she could not stop smiling and giggling. She loved singing and she also loved watching everyone else dance (she did not participate). She also rocks when she sits, but again probably to self-soothe. There is video available with her in it as well.

Chrystyna

Guardian Angelchrystyna2015-croppedGirl, Born 2002

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!

Listed: August 7, 2010

Chrystyna is a beautiful, brown haired, brown eyed girl who deserves a chance at a better life!  Her official orphanage papers say she has developmental delays/difficulties from birth, but nothing more specific than that.  It is possible she has FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome).  Her biological mother  was deprived her parental rights in December 2004, and the biological father is not known.  Chrystyna has so much potential, and will be a precious gift to any family who adopts her.

Chrystyna is already living in an institution, so we need a family for her right away!

UPDATE:  God has been watching Chrystyna.  She was recently transferred out of the institution into a wonderful facility, where they teach these children, work with them, and they appear very well cared for.  The difference in the few girls who were transferred OUT of the institution is incredible!   Please give these girls a second chance for a loving family!

If you are unfamiliar with FAS, please spend some time researching this condition.  Just as with Down syndrome, FAS and FAE have a wide variation of effects on each child, both medically, physically, and cognitively.   This is typically dependent on how long during the pregnancy the mother consumed alcohol, and of course, how much.   There is no way to know this ahead of time.

From a family who met her, Sept 2012:
She is getting settled into her new environment. She seems to be very comfortable in her groupa. She is very beautiful and still has a lot of potential.  She deserves a chance!

From someone who met her, June 2013:
During the music performance, she was constantly stimming really fast (like it looks like she is being fast forwarded) and after they finished she was taken out by a nanny. Not sure what is going on with her;  If interested families want to see the videos they are welcome to! I know a family tried to take pictures of her last year but couldn’t get a good one because she moved so much!

Anastasia is a lovely young lady with blonde hair and blue eyes.  Anastasia was born with CP, and has difficulty walking, but she is very smart and affectionate and doing well.    Physical therapy will work wonders for her.  She will be a wonderful daughter for anyone who considers her!

Update June 2013:
This girl is a dancer! She does not let her CP stop her and she was up and dancing up and down to the music. She is mobile and does walk unassisted but poor thing desperately needs PT and is not receiving it. Her legs do not go straight

Elinor

I have a miracle makerElinorelinor-2016Girl, born 2009
Mental delay, probably FAS

Listed: Dec 31, 2014

From a volunteer who knows her in August 2016:  “Elinor is a sweet little girl who craves attention. Elinor is non verbal and she hardly makes sounds at all. She seems to understand everything that is being said to her. She reacts strongly on body language as well. She shies away from people that have negative/aggressive body language and she comes closer to people with positive/loving body language. Elinor is the smallest child in the group. She spends most of the time sitting on the ground or a chair, not really doing anything. She does not play with toys that are offered to her. She loves to sit on someones lap and it makes her calm when someone sings to her. She would take every chance to cuddle. The nurses said that if she had a chance to be cuddled all day, that she would. Elinor does have some protective behaviors. When she feels threatened she will bite people. It will not stop until that person creates space between them. If she is still upset them, she will continue to bite herself. She does not purposely harm others and she doesn’t seem to bite any of the other children, only adults. Because she is the smallest child of the group, she is an easy target for the aggressive behaviors of the other children.  Elinor seems to be potty trained, she knows how to eat and drink by herself. She also knows perfectly how to navigate a smartphone an play easy games on it or swipe through pictures. She loves all electronic deviced, such as phones, cameras, etc.”

Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.

According to our daughter she is very sweet, she is neat (as in keeps things organized and clean), she loves to help, and she was a very loyal and good friend. I do know that after a while, the way she was treated at the orphanage caused her to cry often and thus they sent her to a different school. My daughter was similar and is doing wonderfully … her aunt has gone to see her once or twice and worries about her condition there.

Kollen #58-11

KollenBoy, Age: 3
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy- mixed form (impacts his legs); delays in development

Kollen has started taking independent steps. He also crawls, sits, pulls up to a standing position holding on to a support, stays up for a short time without support, and walks holding on to two hands. His fine motor skills are improving. He fits in 3 cups, winds and unwinds toys on screws, “reads” books. He plays well with toys and explores their functions, imitates activities demonstrated to him, knocks on door before going in, claps his hands, stamps his feet, shows where his belly is. He eats with a spoon and attempts to do it independently. He is a calm and quiet child, makes a good eye contact, smiles, delights in interaction, recognizes and differentiates between the adults, has an emotional bond to a caregiver that works 1:1 with him. He pronounces sounds and syllables and currently says 3 words. He also used gestures to communicate his wants and needs.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

Alaric #25-15

Alaric 2015 (1) Alaric 2015 (2)Boy, born 2009
Down syndrome
Alaric has delays in psycho-motor development. Senses(sight, hearing) are preserved.

Listed: June 10, 2014

UPDATE early 2015:
Alaric was moved to a family style group home 6 months ago and has made significant progress in this new setting. He is now receiving more personalized attention from staff. While Alaric is still not walking, the director believes that this is due simply to his stubborn insistence to crawl, as he can walk while holding on to one hand of a caregiver. To help him become more independent, the staff introduced a wheelchair and Alaric has learned to maneuver the wheelchair to get where he wants to go. A physical therapist will begin intensive work on teaching him to walk in the coming months.
The staff reports that Alaric has become more expressive and confident since moving into the group home. They are working with him on learning self-help skills such as feeding himself and dressing himself.

Photos and videos from Feb 2015 are available through the agency.

Update Sept 2015
He is extremely energetic child, constantly in motion, keeping his attention on something for a short time. When he has some purpose, he is able to walk a long distance lead by hands to reach his goal. If he was sitting on the ground and nearby there was a support – he succeeded standing up without other’s help. If there was some distance to his goal – then he was crawling to the support (the wall in our case), after which leaning on the wall with his hands, he alone was reaching the desired object.

As to the food, having in mind his diagnose – Down syndrome and related with its physiological characteristics, he is chewing and swallowing with difficulty. Therefore he still accepts blended food – five times daily. He is fed by the staff but usually they “encourage” him to eat alone, holding his hand and bringing the food to his mouth. He drinks liquids with a spoon or with syringe. When served with a cup, he can hold it, but does not bring it to his mouth. He is usually biting the feeding/nursing-bottle. Otherwise, he eats/finishes everything, even very often when he is done with his food, he snivels.

Melaney #51

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMelaneyGirl, age 7

Blind, retrolental fibroplasia, microphthalmia, amaurosis, nystagmus and converging strabismus; Epilepsy – on treatment with Convulex; Severe mental delay; Delay in the neuro-psychical development.

Listed: Jun 9, 2014

She has good motion activity. She can walk freely and overcomes different hurdles. She is with very well coordinated movements. She goes up and down stairs alternating her feet. She has good fine motor skills. She has developed skills in her hands and the movements of her fingers are strong. She can manipulate with small objects.

She has difficulties concentrating her attention. Her imagination is not developed. Intellect: Severe delay in her intellectual development. The cognitive processes are being developed now.  She is emotionally unstable and with frequent changes in her moods. She is inclined to aggression and auto-aggression. She exhibits aggression towards the children around her without a reason. She calms down when she washes her hands or is showered by an adult.

The speech is underdeveloped – she pronounces several words/syllables. She imitates speech by using repetitive syllables and short words. This is her way of interaction with children and adults. The child partially understands what is told to her and orientates by the voice and the sounds. When an adult gives her instructions, she would carry them out if they are simple – she gives her hand for “hello”, waves “bye” and comes closer if called. She laughs if praised.

Sometimes she becomes irritable in the presence of strangers. She rarely interacts with other children. She doesn’t initiate contacts with them and sometimes is aggressive with them. She establishes contacts with the staff and when they ask her something, she understands. She doesn’t have preferences for specific members of the team.

She doesn’t have desire to participate in group games. She doesn’t show interest in toys. She is very musical, loves to listen to children’s music and very correctly hums melodies.  She doesn’t attend school. Specialists work with her by sound and tactile stimulation – through touching hoarse and soft surfaces and fitting in figures by touch and with help. She doesn’t know the colors and doesn’t have orientation for “small” and “large”.

The girl is oriented and adapted to the familiar environment by touching with hands and feet. She has difficulties falling asleep but has a calm sleep. She doesn’t have preferences for specific foods. She undresses and takes her shoes off independently. She drinks form a cup on her own. She eats with a spoon given to her by an adult. She can eat solid foods on her own. She can go down a slide on her own.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.

Marsha #4-62

MarshaMarshaAge: 5
Diagnosis: polymalformative syndrome, chromosomopathy and developmental delays. Right-sided neuritis of the acoustic nerves. Right-sided microthia.

 

Marsha’s birth mother was just 16 years old when Marsha was born and raised her for 3 years. After several hospital stays, Marsha was placed in the orphanage. She has delays in all aspects of her development, but has been making steady progress since entering the orphanage.

Update 2015:
Marsha walks independently. She overcomes medium-sized obstacles, climbs up and down the furniture, and goes up and down stairs, leading by hands. She claps with hands, laughs aloud at tease, and smiles to beloved people from the staff that has sympathies to, goes to them and looks for their attention, touches them, turns her head, makes a chain of syllables. Her games are stereotypical. She comforts herself by rocking and rubbing her head against the wall. Marsha eats slowly and with appetite. She is not picky for food.

Marsha does not speak. She does not follow verbal instructions. She shows willingness to communicate despite her limited language skills and gradually observes tendency towards activity and initiative in nonverbal communication.

Gradually, with the help of adults Marsha is trying to master skills. She likes when special attention is paid to her. Her attention remains unstable, quickly distracted. Her emotions are not always adequate to the situation. She is interested in her mirror image. She cannot recognize herself in the mirror. Her self-control is related to the development of sense-motor schemes and abilities to be used their effects impacting on the objects. She does not regulate her physiological needs.

Easton

40402210550 (2)Boy, born July 2006

Multiple congenital malformations, condition similar to CP.

Nevermind the pink — Easton is a boy!

Easton smiles, reacts to familiar adults, toys.  Look at that gorgeous smile — are those dimples?

From a family who met him in March 2014:

Easton is an incredibly cheerful little boy. The nannies told us that he is smart and talks with them, though we were also told that he is delayed. In fairness, Easton spends almost all of his time in a crib. He would either be sitting or laying when we saw him.

Easton always seemed to be very aware of what was happening around him. One day when a nanny was getting our son ready for his visit, we did a little dance behind her and Easton laughed. He would often smile brighter when we would wave at him across the room while picking up our son on our visits. I believe Easton would flourish in his own family.

Tessa (Lora)

Guardian AngelGirl, born August 2008

 

We were recently informed LORA is actually Tessa!

What a little doll Tessa is!  She really needs a family — she has a whole host of medical issues.

Mental delay, rickets, strabismus (crossed eyes), epilepsy, and a speech delay. She does not talk at all.  She prefers to be alone.  Some of her behaviors remind autism but she was not diagnosed with it.  Her epilepsy is well controlled by medications.  It has been suggested that Tessa may have Angelman Syndrome, but this is not confirmed.

She is able to stand and walk independently. She does not have a diagnosis of CP but she walks unsteadily.   She was previously diagnosed with microcephaly.

She deserves a loving family and a chance to reach her potential, not to be hidden away in a mental institution.

Severe mental delays

Martha does not react to her name, does not know colors, does not play with toys.  can feed herself, but is not adequate. She would eat banana with skin and candy with cover. She is not potty trained. Her speech is almost not developed.

There is a history of prior neglect; George has better development because he lived in the family less time than Martha, before they were removed.

Stephen

Stephen30421111111 (3)Guardian AngelBoy, born June 2006
Minimal brain dysfunction, pyramid insufficiency, secondary cardiomyopathy, anomalous chord of the left heart ventricle, hypermobility of hip joints, concomitant alternating convergent squint.

 

From a family who met him in late 2013:
Stephen was in Riley’s groupa.  We saw him a lot during our 7 weeks of visits.  He stood out because he’s 7 yo and taller than the other kids in his groupa of mostly 4-5 yo’s.  He is a SWEET, sweet boy.  He has a great smile with dimples.    He’s not overly active (not hyper).  Very obedient/cooperative and follows instructions and the flow of the groupa well.  An easy going kiddo.  He doesn’t seem to have very significant needs.  He functions very “typically”, maybe just mild delays.  One thing I’ll never forget about Stephen…  one time when we were invited to watch a performance the kids were putting on, we were one of the only people in the audience.  He stood there, singing and doing the body motions to the production just as well as could be.  He kept looking right at my husband and I like he was performing just for us.  He just seemed to love having someone be there for him and encourage him, and nod and smile and let him know he was doing
