AimeeAge: 8
Diagnosis: Generalized disorder of the development-possible autism

Aimee was placed in an orphanage at birth and adopted through a domestic adoption in her home country at age 3. After a psychologist gave Aimee a diagnosis of “generalized disorder of the development-possible childhood autism”, the adoptive family returned her to an orphanage at age 7.

Aimee has some developed self-help skills: She feeds herself, indicates when she needs to use the bathroom and is toilet trained, undresses herself, and washes her own hands. She is learning additional self-help skills in order to be more independent. She has well developed gross motor skills. She plays with toys appropriately. She enjoys attention from the staff and seeks out hugs and affection. Her memory is very mechanical and her intellect is delayed. She is not aggressive. She pronounces short words and simple sentences. She follows verbal directions. She participates in games and activities and enjoys games with movement. She has formed connections with the adults in her new environment.

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.

The child is considerably delayed in the psycho-motor development. He is not stable on his legs. He can turn from his stomach on his back and vice versa. He can sit alone and can stand up on his knees. Reacts to emotional stimulus with smile, makes sounds, but does not pronounce syllables. He is a picky eater. His sleep is calm.

He can solve simple problems – moving to an object he is interested in. He is mostly happy, gets irritated when placed in a noisy surrounding. He listens to speech but doesn’t seem to understand it. He reacts mainly to the tone. He can play on his own by manipulating simply with toys (takes cubes out of a box and hits them together).

Photos and videos from March 2016 are available through the agency.

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.

UPDATE April 2012:    Kristopher is doing very well. In the new videos of him, he is tracking objects, playing with toys and saying “mama”!  He does have cataracts and would benefit from lens replacement surgery.

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.

Update Nov 2015:

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.

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.

Increased tonus of limbs- started to walk at the age of 2 years and 2 months. Unstable walking. mild mental delay. Suspected possible autism

Updated: Jeremiah’s record was updated, he does not have an autism diagnosis. He has generalized development disorders.

Jeremiah is calm when sleeps and is awake, has a good eating habits appropriate for the age. The child has chewing reflex and eats well. The child cannot service itself but is in the process of developing elementary skills for independence- takes part in the dressing process, holds the cutlery when eating.

Jeremiah can stand up without help, walks independently and is cautious in unknown environment. When someone holds his hand, he can go up and down stairs. He plays with cubes knocking them one another. He can appropriately use toys. He can continuously repeat one action. He is rarely interested in speech and role plays and has some moments of exclusion. He can express joy but difficulty becomes active in dynamic games. Micro motor skills are not well developed.
He rarely and selectively expresses interest for objects and happenings around him. He can use one particular object and does not always react to a new one that is offered to him. He shows and offers toys to other people. He can put some small items in a box and then empties it.

Jeremiah is often introspected in his own world and his attention and interest is not easy to be provoked.  His memory is very short. He cannot remember words and activities that are not repeated continuously. He easily forgets. Sometimes he imitate a person he knows.  The child communicates more with gestures and rarely uses speech. He can use only limited number of short words and does not follow instruction. He can express preferences among some items and activities. He can express pleasure and annoyance, joy, and happiness. He is happy during games, explores the game around him but with slower pace than the other children of his age.

Jeremiah can distinguish between familiar and unknown people. He can initiate a contact but has difficulties in maintaining it. He is passive in the playground and rarely initiates a contact with other children.

Jeremiah demonstrates delay in his psychomotor, cognitive and social development. Family environment poses extraordinary stimulating effect and he is able to quickly compensate his motor problems and shows potential for development. He can already walk independently, can overcome obstacles and stairs with help, develops skills for independence and stimulates his speech expression. His social skills are also under development.

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.

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.

aaronaaron-2015Boy, born 2003
CP

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!

MiloBoy, born August 2012Milo
Hydrocephalus, nystagmus, strabismus

UPDATE April 2015
He is pretty healthy. Had bronchiolitis and pneumonia. It is good that he did not have any problems with shunt after placement in newborn period. Prognosis depends how well hydrocephalus was advanced. In his case it will be no problems since he did not have complications in the first months. That he did not have any shunt infection that required surgical revision which is a very good sign. If there is no initial delay most of the cases have a totally normal life. There is no history of seizure disorder. He is small for his age, but we do not know history of the parents. There is a foot abnormality mentioned, but is nothing it does not restrict his normal activity. I do not see any ophtalmological evaluation for his nystagmus. Crossed eyes are not a big problem.

UPDATE March 2015:
Milo has excellent qualities. He is a very clever child. He made his first steps at the age of 10 months. At the age of 12 months he started to speak complete sentences …  The child only problem is the strabismus, but it can be corrected in the USA. After his birth it was made an intervention for removal of pressure in the brain in the best and most modern hospital in country. The operation was successful, no need for a second for now.
The agency has several pictures and videos available.

Guardian Angelbrandidatabase-1brandi-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.

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.

$10,159.30 100% of your giving -- up to the original grant amount ($10,681.29) -- will go to Brandi, to help rebuild her grant

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.

Nevil2

Nevil_2015Boy, age: 2 and a half
Special needs: congenital adrenal insufficiency (for which he undergoes maintenance therapy); muscular dystrophy Duschen-Becker (for which he has physical therapy, remedial gymnastics, etc.); bilateral cryptorchidism and delayed neuropsychological development.
He demonstrates interest in toys and plays with them for quite some time; reaches out his hands to a person he finds pleasant; rejoices when playing peekaboo; laughs aloud when jested; produces continuous random sound combinations.

When held, he keeps his head upright. He has more support in his legs. He sits only with steady support but not independently. He turns from back to stomach and vice versa; he turns in different directions when put on his back; he stands in a walker. He insistently gets to a toy that has attracted his attention. He prefers to play with hanging toys and rings that he studies with interest. With little help he can knock two blocks one against the other. He takes and holds in his hand a toy given to him but mainly shakes it. He is fed by an adult and drinks liquids given by an adult. He cheers to play of “peek-a-boo” and hiding. He doesn’t imitate sounds but pronounces accidental and long combinations of sounds.

Photos and videos from January 2015 along with a complete medical report are available through the agency.

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.

From someone who met her in June 2013:  “She was one of my absolute favorite kids I met! She is just the sweetest thing. She is diagnosed with MR not sure she really is. She was giggling and introduced herself by saying her name. She has a huge smile! She has a special nanny that does PT with her. She was bed bound when I met her but she came from a very good orphanage before she was transferred here. She needs out now!!”

Paige June 2013 (3)Girl, born 2004
Mental delays. Down syndrome, cardiopathia. Umbilical hernia. Convergent squint.

Listed:  October 4, 2012

Paige had previously been living with her mother until she lost her rights.

She can sit independently and can crawl! Her speech is not well developed but she can partially understand what you are saying.  She has a very short attention span.

Update June 2013:
Lovely Paige has hair now!  She broke my heart.  She was just sitting on the couch rocking back and forth and didn’t respond at all when I came over to her. Poor, sweet thing!! 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.

Vera June 2013-001VeraGirl, born 2007
Birth anomaly brain development, microcephaly with tetraparesis, convulsive syndrome. Mental delays. Convergent squint. Partial optic atrophy. Umbilical hernia.

Oh sweet Vera!  She spends much of her day in the crib and she needs stimulation!! She is living on borrowed time. She has tremendous potential for improvement if only she is given the chance. She will require medical attention and families should expect at the very least physical therapy.

Update June 2013:
Vera is doing well!  She looks good — but she still spends too much time in her crib.

Vera needs a family!

shayla june 2013Girl, born 2004
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.

NEW PIC OF LAUREN!

Listed: August 7, 2010

Lauren says “HI Mama!!  I’m here waiting for you!”  (in this photo she is riding a rocking horse!)

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.

From someone who met her, summer 2013:

This girl has my heart. I can not get her off my mind! I wish I was in a place to adopt or I would go get her. I really, really hope a family falls in love with her like I have! I got to kiss her and love on her for a little bit. No idea what she was saying to me but she gave the biggest smile- very photogenic. I can’t bear to think about her just sitting in the wheelchair and watching the other kids play!

Update June 2013: 
Frieda is also very sweet but is delayed. She is shy when you meet her but she loves lollipops and will smile for one :)  There is video also available with her in it, for interested families. She knew the words to the lyrics to the songs they performed and also tried to dance along to the music. She does like to rock a little bit when she sits more than likely to self-soothe.

Alexey June 2013 Boy, Born 2001

Listed: January 23, 2015

Alexey is considered significantly delayed. He is fully mobile, and oh so handsome! But he has been given a second chance at life, saved from the mental institution and living in this well-kept school setting.

From a family who met him, Sept 2012:  Alexei is really a handsome guy and I think he knows it! He was playing ball with his groupa and is very active. When he was given a cookie from us he said thank you appropriately and made perfect eye contact. He will be a joy to any family with sons at home!

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.” :)

I am not sure if she knew the words to the song but her mouth moved the entire time. She also rocks when she sits and does present as delayed.  She has a very sweet, shy smile.

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!

Listed: October 29, 2012

Soleil comes very highly recommended from the orphanage director. She has shown great progress since she entered the orphanage.

She is running out of time — a family must be found for her before she turns 16!

Update June 2013:
Soliel really stands out.  She is a helper. She was helping the younger children stand up and dance and they were watching her to mimic what to do. She seems to be one of children that helps the orphanage staff as she is able to follow directions. She can read and speaks very clearly when asked questions. It is unclear why she is in this specific orphanage and they pointed her out specifically as needing a family! She is a very sweet girl who said she has dreamed about having a family but isn’t sure if she will ever have one- it just about broke my heart. There is also video available with her in it!

Information from the family who adopted her close friend:

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.

She shows increased muscle activity, cannot speak, although she makes attempts and makes some sounds.  She has learned to walk and now runs. She is on drug treatment for her epilepsy.  Needs an adult’s help with dressing and toileting. She is relatively happy, calm and is not a problem child.

Kraig_Sept 2015 Kraig2_Sept 2015Boy, 7 years old
blind
Prematurely born with low birth weight; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis; ROP (Retinopathy of the prematurely born) with detachment of the retina in both eyes – second type, final stage; Amaurosis; Delays in the physical and neuro-psychical development.

UPDATE from a family who met him in 2016: I spent a week with Kraig at the children’s home. He is very well cared for and loved by the Nannies, but they are so limited in respect for knowing how to care for a blind child and being able to provide what he needs. He cannot play with most of the toys because he cannot see them. He is walking VERY well. He has a very hard time when the room gets loud and he does self soothe by putting his hands on his ears and rocking. I believe with a good school/program he would learn how to live daily life as a blind person and be fully functional. He really wants to be loved. He would even let me put my hand on his head or rub his back. He would be a real Mama’s Boy! I would love to help find him a family and I will commit to helping that family fundraise as much as I possibly can.

Kraig needs a family! His most recent update shows he is doing worse than previously; he has started some auto-aggressive behaviors and autistic traits – which is not a surprise since he’s blind and doesn’t have a lot of stimulation and attention in his environment.

Kraig doesn’t talk but understands the speech of the adults, reacts to his name but not always, and pronounces accidental combinations of sounds. He doesn’t use non-verbal means or gestures to communicate. He likes to cuddle in familiar adults.

He laughs loud when teased and expresses positive emotions to interactions with familiar adults. When he is anxious, he exhibits auto-aggression. He cries form strangers. Sometimes he lives in his own world, does stereotypical movements (rocks), and refuses to carry out instructions. He becomes very restless in a noisy environment, when the tone of the voice is raised or at loud sounds (hi puts his hands on his ears). He has difficulties accepting new things.

Kraig tolerates close contact with familiar adults but doesn’t interact with his peers due to his vision. He walks with support and around unmoving support. He makes independently several steps but is afraid. He moves comparatively calmly in a familiar environment. He is terrified by the walks in the yard. He has good appetite and eats well but doesn’t gain weight well.

Kraig plays with musical toys. He likes to listen to music and songs. He claps his hands and is happy then. He prefers familiar toys and children’s songs. He has difficulties accepting new games and needs time to get used to them. He holds objects in his hands. He can play for a long time with appropriate musical toys – hits a drum and tambourine and waves with rattles.

Updated photos from Sept 2015 — the agency has videos available, too.

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.

Dylan takes a sitting position independently and remains sitting for a long time without using anything for support.He stands up in his crib while holding onto the bars and he walks around in his crib freely. He can walk when held by both hands and he makes small steps, albeit not stable enough. He has already started moving around independently with a movable support (a special walker). Dylan is very happy when a familiar adult jests him. He would often get sulky when the adult is going away. He produces various sounds. He often expresses his emotions with screams and shouts. Dylan responds to being called by name and to the invitation “Come here”. He is fed with slightly mashed transitional food. Dylan does very well drinking liquids from a cup. If he likes the drink, he holds the cup independently, with both his hands. Dylan cannot yet control his physiological needs and he isn’t potty-trained yet.

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.

Antoinette (2) Antoinette (1)Girl, almost 4 years old

infantile cerebral palsy; blindness; bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, muscle tone – quadri-hypotonia and hyperreflexia.

March 2014 update:

No physical activity and initiative. Takes a passive seat with adherence, has elbow support but shows poor balance reactions. Gripping reflex – upon touch with, grips for a short while. Visual – motor coordination /hand-to-hand; Hand-foot-thigh; Hand-foot-mouth /. Visual analyzer – horizontal nystagmus, amaurosis, atrophy of optic nerve. Does not follow and fixate a bright object. Does not wince and does not orient in the direction of strong acoustic stimulus, bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Pronounced “seeking” reflex and pathological oral automatisms. Speech production – coo sounds and vocalizations. Affective reactions – heavily decreased mimical facial expression, responds to tactile stimulation, “facade” smile is observed briefly.

Autonomy – positioned entirely by an adult. She feeds with an appetite and permanently gains on weight. Sleep – short periods of wakefulness.

Update, August 2014: Within a month this little girl has made a progress, which is encouraging. Also, the staff working with her shared that according to them she is not deaf but probably with decreased hearing!!!

The agency has an updated report on file and video! Antoinette needs a family that will give her a chance!

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.

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

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

40404202845 Aura LeeGirl, born July 2009
Microcephaly, spastic tetraparesis

 

Oh, isn’t she lovely?

Aura Lee is doing very well.  She knows her nannies, smiles at familiar adults.  She can sit down and stand up with help.  She does not have mental delays.

Aura Lee has features consistent with FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).  This is not a diagnosis, but a cautionary disclosure.

Aura has developing speech — she can make separate sounds, and will repeat after an adult.

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.

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.

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.

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 a good job.  He was working so hard to do his best and he did so well!  It was sweet and sad all at the same time….knowing we weren’t his mama and papa and he didn’t have anyone there to give him that recognition forever, that he so appreciated.  He would make such a delightful son!  We would have brought him home too but were only homestudy approved for one boy.   He’s in a good orphanage that provides good care and services.  But who knows where he’ll be transferred to when they no longer have space for him (he’s already over age.)  I have pictures and video of him.  Such a kind, happy little boy….he needs a family!!!

Large families welcome; married couples only.

Boy, Born May 2007

HIV+, FAS,  heart defect, vision issues (blind in one eye), moderate mental delay

 

Kristopher finally available again!!  Kristopher is a handsome young man with blonde hair and brown eyes.   He is very active and is said to be always happy, but he is quite delayed.  Kristopher has significant vision issues, which may or may not be correctable.  He shows many facial and medical features of FAS.

 

***He can be adopted with Jessica and/or Emerson if a family is interested and approved in their home study ***

 

From a family who met him in early 2014:  Kristopher is such a sweet boy, and I think he would have so much potential in a loving home! He is very small for his age; he was 6, but looked like about 4 years old. He was definitely more mentally delayed than the other boys in his group, but he could answer questions appropriately, followed directions, could eat by himself and get dressed to go outside with little help. One time we played a game like ring-around-the-rosy, and he knew the words to the song and how to play along. He loved when my husband lifted him up high in the air. His eyesight is poor, and they said he is blind in one eye. He had trouble doing a puzzle, but we weren’t sure if it was a cognitive issue, or because he couldn’t see the pieces well. They told us he has some sort of heart condition, which might require surgery. We did see him showing rocking behavior at times. He got along well with the other kids, although he often played by himself, probably because of cognitive differences. He is so precious and really needs a family!

From a family who met him in October 2012:  Kristopher is a super-sweet boy who is 5 but looks 2 and is happy ALL the time.  He needs to live near a large medical facility, have heart surgery (unless it’s too late), and probably needs a small family that can commit to pretty full care for him. He is darling!

From a family who met him in spring 2014:   Kristopher is such a sweet boy, and I think he would have so much potential in a loving home!  He is very small for his age; he was 6, but looked like about 4 years old.  He was definitely more mentally delayed than the other boys in his group, but he could answer questions appropriately, followed directions, could eat by himself and get dressed to go outside with little help.  One time we played a game like ring-around-the-rosy, and he knew the words to the song and how to play along.  He loved when my husband lifted him up high in the air.  His eyesight is poor, and they said he is blind in one eye.  He had trouble doing a puzzle, but we weren’t sure if it was a cognitive issue, or because he couldn’t see the pieces well.  They told us he has some sort of heart condition, which might require surgery.  We did see him showing rocking behavior at times.  He got along well with the other kids, although he often played by himself, probably because of cognitive differences.  He is so precious and really needs a family!

He has fine motor skills, understands everything, he talks but it is hard to understand him.  Nolan is very physically active, happy and cooperative, friends with other children.   A family living in the states who has 3 children, one who is significantly disabled, has taken a special interest in Nolan but cannot add Nolan to their own family due to the needs of their children. Per the family, “Nolan’s eyes and smile caught our heart. He is close in age to one of our own children. We hope this gift will enable someone to give Nolan the chance to live outside an institution.”

Rhonda is VERY alert and aware. In 2012, her head measurement was 71cm. It has not grown since that time. She’s learning to push herself around in a wheelchair. She can control her head and hold it up, but still requires support to sit up. She loves being upright and gets upset when left laying for long periods of time. She sits in a positioning chair and loves it. She manipulate with objects-she puts cubes one on top of the other, puts wide rings on a fixed axis, she inlays 5 cubes with different sizes one into the other. She concentrates for longer time when doing something that is interesting for her. She likes listening to music and will share her toys with other children. She follows simple directions.

Brayden eating31209224312 (3)Boy, born September 2004
Mental delays; he does not talk. He is very active.

Listed: December 9, 2013

From someone who met him in 2013:  Brayden looks to be about 4 years old, not 9. He’s a very energetic and happy little boy. He would always run up to the missionaries. He is in the same groupa as Collier. He loved it when we went outside, and when the older boys swung him around. He also loved swinging on the bench swing and on one of the bouncy cars. He has some speech sounds, but it is very difficult to understand. Brayden is also very caring, and has the most infectious smile. I believe he would be a very good fit in a family.

Update March 2014:  He is a very enthusiastic and high energy little guy with obvious microcephaly. He spoke, but very minimally, and makes a lot of other noises- squeals and such. he is very assertive, especially when it comes to getting something he wants (like candy and fruit!) and seems to have poor proprioceptive input, and is unaware of how frequently he bounces into people and things lol (very common with FAS, and typically addressed through an improved sensory diet and occupational therapy, for more info, read about the Out of Sync Child). He seems like a sweet little boy.

November 2015:  *** Emery facing imminent transfer.  He urgently needs a family!  ***

Info from a family that met him 10/15:
He has a lot of energy, but he listens well to the nannies. They often reminded him to behave in passing – though it was more of a reminder that they were watching than because he was acting up. He interacts well with other children though he did not engage me (adult) very much. He is delayed, but has potential in a family. Super cute. He needs a family, there is so much hope and potential for him that he will not get in an orphanage. He would do well with older children to set an example.

Caleb
cerebral palsy, focal symptomatic epilepsy, Paraplegia (paraparesis) and quadriplegia (quadriparesis), taking anticonvulsant therapy

Please help us find them a family, where they can grow up together and reach their full potential!

 

From someone who met them in 2013:
(Brother 1)  He is in with a much younger groupa. He goes outside twice daily when it is nice, and this orphanage does physical therapy five times a week. He makes eye contact, but is in his own little world until you talk directly to him. He appears kind of zoned out, and then I said his name and stroked his cheek and his whole body came to life, just longing to be touched and tickled. He arched his back and smiled, but I wasn’t allowed to pick him up. He has grown too long for his stroller. I put a velcro wrist rattle on him and he purposefully moved his left arm to interact with it immediately. He is well nourished there, but he will really need a mama’s touch to help him grow. His teeth look like they are in great shape. He uses his arms, but I did not see him move his legs, though he was certainly wiggling from one side to the other and is a kid who would really like to be on the move! He is not in the same groupa as his brother. Kids are generally grouped by what they are eating, and his brother was in the groupa for kids doing formula and purees. I think he may be on only formula still. It was so hard to leave him behind!

31009173432 G31009112817 B

(Brother 2)  Several days later, I saw who I thought was the same child in a different stroller, but the nannies corrected me when I called him by his brothers name, slowly communicating that this was his twin brother. They look SO much alike! The first day I saw him, he was badly in need of a diaper change and I showed the nannies. He was laying flat on his back in the outdoor playpen, and when I came back to return my daughter to the groupa, he was still there an hour later, unchanged in diaper and position. The next day I saw him, though, one of the sweet nannies was playing music on her ipod, and he was laying close to her in a stroller. Although he didn’t interact with the music, he was very quick to respond to my voice. The second I stopped talking, he stopped smiling and zoned out again. But, he was so responsive to touch and baby talk!  He pushed his body around in the stroller with his legs AND arms, and had a lot of good neck strength. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is only being limited by the assumptions of his diagnosis. As we left our daughter’s groupa for the last time, we saw him being lovingly carried down to his physical therapy appointment. I think it was a sign of good things to come for these boys!

Neither boy is using meaningful speech, though both babble. Videos available. Wonderful region to adopt from, especially if one parent needs to stay alone for a time.

LucaBoy, born 2005
Autism

Listed: October 2, 2013

Luca is all boy!  He adores mechanical devices and toys, with any action involved.  He can spend a long time concentrating, studying the secrets of mechanics.  Most of the time he plays alone as it isn’t easy for him to interact with others. When he gets tired of talking he goes to a corner and sits there for a long time. There are not many chances for him to be alone at the orphanage.

Luca prefers routines; it’s hard for him to deal with changes in his surroundings. The usual routine, having the same people around and things in usual places create for him an illusion of steadiness and reliability in his world. It calms him down and gives him some confidence. Unfortunately, soon Luca will have to drastically change his life. But, it would be better for him if he gets used to a foster home than to the institution.

Although he is a thin boy, he likes to eat. His mood changes like the weather on a spring day. He could be crying one moment and the next moment laughing. Classes are not always interesting to him but. He appreciates when some adults help him with his homework.

Elijah-2014Boy, born Feb 2006
Elijah Birth defect of central nervous system, hydrocephalus, mental delays, manifest deviation, cardipathy and protein-calorie deficiency

Listed: June 21, 2013

Elijah needs a family asap, because he needs constant care, and at the orphanage he doesn’t receive it. They fed him with wheat cream only and how he is feeling sick all the time, it’s hard to feed him, so that at orphanages he just remains hungry sometimes.

He can walk and likes music and playing with mobile phones.  He likes watching TV and doesn’t speak much.

Guardian AngelElijah really responds well to a male caregiver — he needs a Papa of his very own!
From a missionary who visited in August 2014:  ” A beautiful little boy. He is doing so much better, he loves to walk.  He needs someone to hold his hand as is too scared to walk alone just yet.  He still has some self harming behaviors and lets you know when he’s not happy!  But most of the time he is calm and has the cutest giggle. ”

From someone who met him summer 2013:  
Elijah is a beautiful, sweet child. He is nonverbal but he occasionally makes some noises. Unfortunately, when I saw him he had to be restrained most of the time because he would hit himself and bang his head … hard. He now has a one-on-one caregiver, and I hear he is doing very well. Elijah likes to watch tv, and he loves musical toys. When you play music for him, he just lights up in a huge smile. He has an infectious laugh. While I was visiting, Elijah had surgery to fix a malfunctioning shunt. I was able to visit him in the hospital. The dedication of the man who is now his personal caregiver was amazing. Elijah can walk with support, and he loves to be held and cuddled. This little blond-haired child looks like an angel, and he would bring nothing but joy to a family’s life.

Several videos of him are available from Maya’s Hope.
