PRC

 

Helen was born with encephalocele, which is type of neural tube defect that occurs very early in fetal life where the embryo’s cells that form the skull do not come together to close over the brain. The result is a defect in the bones of the skull, causing brain tissue to protrude from the skull.

Helen

Helen loves to make herself laugh. She enjoys spending her time playing, humming, and observing things around her. She is doing well and getting strong. She is able to walk with help and has recently been able to pull herself up. She loves to go outside to the playground and practice her walking. Her smile is so cute and her laugh so hearty.

Helen has had surgery, and additional information is available about her surgeries and hospitalizations.  She has vision concerns, and has recently begun speaking a few words.

Ezra May 2013 (2)

ezra-3Boy, born Oct 2011 congenitalguardianangel
internal hydrocephalus operated;  anemia;  protein-energy deficiency

Ezra has had a shunt placed, and is doing better.  His adoption may necessitate consultations with medical personnel, to safely transport him home.

From someone who met Ezra in 2013:    Ezra is absolutely precious! He is sweet and adorable and oh so lovable!  He laughs when his toes are tickled, or when someone around him laughs or talks or sings to him. He often smiles or laughs so hard his chubby cheekers make his eyes close. He ha s learned to blow spit bubbles and coo. It is hard for me to tell if he is able to use his limbs normally, but he is able to move from his back to his side with little or no assistance. He has not yet learned to play with toys, but he has a very strong grip and enjoys holding my finger. I was told he can see, but not very well. I observed his eyes moving rapidly from side to side, and sometimes appearing to be looking in two different directions. In spite of this there were other times in which he appeared to be quite focused and looking right at us. He has absolutely stolen my heart, and I hope that he will find a family that can help him meet his full potential!

These pictures are from May, 2013.

Caius and Anne are in the same orphanage with Ezra.

Large families welcome; married couples only.

Jason (1)Boy, Born April 10, 2003

 

HELP!  I have been transferred to a remote institution, with no hope of finding my family without you!

Jason spends his time either in a crib or in a stroller, sitting outside.

He needs a lot of love and attention … He is a good, sweet child, but he has a lot of self-injuring behaviors.  Unfortunately, he is often restrained because he hits himself really hard.

Update Nov 2012:  Jason is learning to walk with support!

 

From a  family who visited with him in June 2013:   I saw Jason this morning. I got to take him for a walk in the stroller, play with him, feed him (twice!), and get him ready for his nap. He is wonderful. He loved it when I made my hand crawl up his belly and tickle him under the chin. I was rewarded with loud laughing and a huge smile. He liked to have me rub his feet, and whenever I would stop he would stick his little foot up for more. He makes noises but he does not talk. He can walk if he holds both of your hands, but he prefers to crawl as he can go faster. He is the king of the bouncy seat. He sits in it whenever he can, and he shooed away another child who came too close. 😉 He is about the size of a four year old and is in a 4/5 shirt. He’s heavier than I thought he would be, but I can carry him easily. I’m totally in love.

10 day wait often waived here.  Married couples only, larger families welcome.

Zach (3) Zach (4)Boy, born July 2008
PRC
Zach is an adorable boy diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy. His limb, intelligence, and language development is delayed compared to peers.

Zach had some new medical testing done and the results indicate that it may be likely that he has Progressive Muscular Dystrophy and not Cerebral Palsy.  A family should be prepared for that probable diagnosis.

From Zach’s host family (hosted December 2014)
Zach is a lovely 6-year-old boy and an absolute delight. He has a joyful and cheerful disposition, a sweet spirit, and an infectious smile. He is smart and resourceful in his interactions and playing. He enjoys playing with cars, dolls and animals, flying helicopters, and almost any mechanical objects. He enjoys playing pretend games, like pulling pretend luggage around the house and pretending to cook and serve us with play food, plates, cups, saucers, etc. He loves music and often sings as he goes about his day, and he’s been enjoying learning to play his new harmonica. He interacts well with other children: in our case with our 7- and 8-year-old daughters. He also has a good memory and surprised us by quickly learning things like where all of our dishes go and where we turn to get to our house. He has adapted so well to life in a family, and loves the bedtime rituals of bathing, brushing teeth, getting into his pajamas, and reading; but he also has an endearing habit of making sure the proper lights are turned off, doors are locked where they need to be, etc. He clearly is proud to show he can take on big-kid responsibilities. Zach has to work harder than most children to climb up steps and to get himself up off the floor. But he does navigate steps well, though he needs a boost at times getting into vans or other high places. In December, he was still able to walk normally, except that he has to be more careful than other kids in negotiating uneven surfaces, and steps. He doesn’t let this slow him down or limit his activities. On playgrounds, even with many unfamiliar children, he is not inhibited about climbing the equipment and riding down slides. He accepts help sometimes from us or from our children; other times he wants to show that he can do things alone even if it is harder for him. Zach can sometimes act like a much younger boy. He has a strong stubborn streak, which will sometimes manifest itself in a tantrum. Those tantrums did lessen over the weeks, however. He also enjoys being held, cuddled, and paid attention to and will come and say “Mama bao bao” when he wants to be picked up and carried. As our 7-year-old (without prompting from us) wrote in her journal, “Zach is the best boy I have ever met. He is cheerful and happy.” The medical evaluations we were able to do point to significant medical challenges ahead for Zach, and he will need a loving family to support him through those and ensure that he has the best care possible. Zach loves being a part of a family and will be a blessing and joy for whomever is lucky enough to adopt him.

alicia6Girl, Born 2004

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!  ALICIA HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED.

 

 SO THANKFUL FOR A NEW PIC OF ALICIA!!   Miss Alicia is a beautiful little girl who needs a loving family.  Her other two typically developing sisters were adopted by other families already.
Alicia was born to an HIV+ mother, and is HIV+ herself.  She has also has significant delays and challenges associated with her FAS.  (fetal alcohol syndrome).  We are waiting to learn if she has any medical complications, but she is cognitively delayed and does show signs of attention deficit and hyperactivity.    Alicia will do best where she can be the focus of attention and have her Daddy wrapped around her finger :)    Alicia has SO much potential, and deserves a family as much as her other sisters do.   I know there is a family out there for this little girl!  She is facing the mental institution soon, but has grown up in a loving and well kept orphanage so far.  A committed family now can prevent her transfer!

 

From an adoptive family who visited with her in July 2010:  ” Alicia absolutely LOVES one on one attention. she is front and center if you are handing out kisses and hugs. You can see she wants a Mama all her own, and it will be so hard on her to have her sister leave to be adopted, as her other sister was already adopted.   (Their mother is deceased, most likely from AIDS).   She likes to swing.   She loved to lay her head in my lap while we were both on the bench swing and I would stroke her hair. The other kids didnt like to share my attention but Alicia was ok with it.   I could have two in my lap and she didn’t mind, but she didnt like being crowded out when the other child decided they wanted me all to themselves.  She likes sensory input.   She kept rubbing her arm across my husband’s unshaved face and shivering and making the funniest face and then immediately doing it again.  She likes to go down the slide again and again.   She really likes to be in the  middle of whatever is going on, and be included. But often she is excluded, even by attendants.  For Alicia it’s a vicious circle. She is delayed, she gets frustrated, they don’t let her do things the others are doing, she gets more delayed and more frustrated. She is VERY VERY SWEET AND LOVING.  She needs a family that has only a couple kids, not ten. She has HIV.   If you want a little girl to hug and kiss, she will GLADLY take all the hugs and kisses you can hand out. She isn’t afraid of men but isn’t inappropriate either. I saw her with my husband as well as another couple of young men who visit regularly.  Alicia is on the small side, like maybe size 4.  The children are valued and loved at this orphanage.   The grounds are visually stimulating and the kids get outside for a couple hours in the morning as well as afternoon.   They even go swimming in the pool they have there.   Hope someone will come for Alicia very soon!”   Alicia is toilet-trained and able to say when she needs to use the restroom.  She has tremendous potential if someone would take her home and love her!

Nolan Photo 4 - Jan-2014Adorable Nolan was born in April 2010 and has Down Syndrome. He also has a congenital heart defect.

Nolan is a sociable child who enjoys playing with toys. He can cruise along stable support and is quite a little climber. Even though Nolan does not yet speak, he understands instructions. He likes moving to music, eats well and sleeps soundly.

Update Oct 2014:
From a family who met Nolan in October 2014: Nolan is an active little boy and very interested in the happenings in his environment. When we visited his room with our son who used to live there, he instantly tried to interact with our son who had crawled into the playpen with the other kids plus Nolan was watching what we were doing as well. Nolan cannot yet walk, but sits, stands, crawls, and cruises. He eats and sleeps well. Nolan still uses diapers, but his caretakers know his typical bathroom times and put him on the potty for them. When I picked up Nolan, he made wonderful eye contact with me and I heard him babble different sound combinations. His caretakers told me he is a kind child who enjoys and seeks physical affection and attention from others.

KentBoy, born December 2011

PRC
Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Kent is an adorable baby boy who is just 1 year old! He came into care when he was 4 months old, and they began working with him immediately to strengthen his muscles. Kent has Down syndrome, and a VSD (6mm) with left atrium enlargement. He may require a surgical procedure to plug the ASD. Kent’s development is delayed, as would be expected. When he turned 1 year old, he was not yet sitting alone, or crawling. He will need more time, and attention, before he masters these milestones.

Kent is a precious baby boy. He is very alert, and very engaging. His receptive language is very good, and he is beginning to make sounds to communicate with the nannies. His favorite activity is listening to music and being hugged. I cannot argue with that! Kent needs a family to love him, and help him reach his full potential. This sweet boy is waiting for you!

mandy1Girl, Born 2010mandy3

syndactyly of hands and feet, steeple tower head, psychological and motor delay, Congenital heart defect (patent foramen ovale, secondary defect of interatrial septum)

 The director is praying for a family before she transfers to the institution in the fall!!

Updated March 2016:
She is doing really well and making good progress in her development. She is facing transition to the institution in the fall. She doesn’t deserve a life in the institution. It weighs heavily on the orphanage director’s mind to have her moved out to the institution instead of a family.

She was born with multiple skeletal anomalies, including fused/webbed hands.  As a cautionary disclosure, Mandy does appear to have Apert syndrome.

The girl is smiling, laughing. Doctors consider that surgery may help to separate her fingers on the hands.   They give a positive prognosis regarding her mental development.  More photos are available.

This region typically waives the 10 day waiting period for children with special needs.

Guardian AngelCharlotteSimeon, Born October 2007
Significantly delayed; Cerebral palsy
Charlotte, born 2002
significantly delayed

Simeon is a beautiful Roma child with dark hair and big brown eyes.  He is significantly delayed, and diagnosed with cerebral palsy.  We are trying to get more information on his social history.  Simeon is a fraternal twin, whose sister has already been adopted.

Simeon is described as mostly non-verbal, and is not able to walk on his own.  There just seems to be so much potential for him in a family environment.  He is already an outcast because of his darker skin and will be left institutionalized – and likely bedridden — if not adopted.

From a family who visited with him in 2011:  Simeon is barely responsive to stimuli, but I believe that could change if he received regular, loving attention.  I didn’t observe any of the orphanage workers spending much time interacting with him.  There were times that I was able to get him to smile and grip my hand.  After a few days, he was even able to clap!  But most of the time he is staring off in any direction and seems completely unable to control most of his movements.  He was always either lying down or propped up in a sitting position.  I never heard him speak.  I also never heard him cry or fuss. Overall, a very calm child.

Married couples only, larger families and older parents welcome.

Boy, born January 2007
Down syndrome

Handsome Kelvin is 8 years old, and waiting for his family!

40626124650 Philip (1)

From a family who met him in June 2014:

This calm little guy came up to me with pleading eyes for attention and is just so polite. God has heard his prayers, and now he is listed for adoption! He is not overbearing or competitive at all. Rather, he is observant and inquisitive. He is about the size of a six year-old and just so gentle. I would take him home in a heartbeat if he was available before. He takes turns riding the red wagon around the orphanage grounds as the bigger boys pull him, and he gestures politely for fresh fruit when he sees it is available. He is kind to other children. He says a few words in his native language, and listened carefully when I was giving descriptions of my family photos. I have confidence that he would do wonderfully in any kind of family, and it is obvious– he can surely reciprocate love! He enjoyed throwing balls, going on walks, playing see-saw, and listening to English descriptions. Whoever adopts this little love will be so blessed to call him a beloved son.

updated yvonne2YvonneYvonne-ChinaGirl, born July 2005
PRC
Down syndrome

 

Yvonne is a polite and friendly girl. “She likes to be tidy and beautiful,” said a visiting social worker. “So many times I saw her combing her hair.”

For the past year, Yvonne has lived in a group home in Hebei, China, where she gets to experience family life in the care of a foster mother and father. Although Yvonne has Down syndrome, she is described as “high functioning” for her condition. In the group home, she has taken on a big sister role and often helps her foster mom care for the younger children. Now 8 years old, she can read over 50 Chinese characters and count and write from 1 to 10.

Yvonne loves to perform and has natural grace. She was chosen to be the dance leader at her orphanage preschool. When she completes a project, she loves sharing it with her foster mom, and basking in her praise. Although she can be stubborn at times, Yvonne mostly listens and follows directions well.

Update Oct 2014:
Yvonne is outgoing and sensible. In her foster family, she is like an elder sister who takes care of her younger siblings. Whenever there are conflics between her siblings, she will do mediation for them. She acts like a little judge who is amiable but dignified. Therefore, her siblings all have faith in her. Yvonne loved on all the kids at the SWI too. She tucked them all in and told the visitors all about them.

Yvonne is also a good assistant of her parents in the foster family. When her foster parents are cooking, she always helps them with trimming vegetables, washing dishes or sweeping the floor. She does all these things as good as an adult. When her foster parents need to go out, she can take good care of her siblings so that let her parents don’t need to worry about them. She does so many things that her parents always praise her and love her so much.

We did not see him move about the floor, he needed to be held. This is frustrating for him. We did not observe him using his hands. I tried to place toys in his hands a he did not grab them. He did not laugh or smile.

Mild to moderate mental delays

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!

At the age of 4 years, she could have eat and drink independently and could recognize people, places and objects, but her expression was poor. At the age of 6 years, she was receiving the special education in the institute. Her self-management was improved under the guidance of the teacher, but her accepting ability was not good compared to other kids of her age. At the age of 8 years, she could speak simple numbers and words, could draw, could finish some simple jigsaw puzzles, and could play with the toy blocks. Now she can wave her body along with the rhythm of the music, can read simple children’s songs and words, and can count 1-10, but her expression is still poor. Trudy is open, likes music, can get along well with other kids, likes helping people, and wants to be praised. She is happy when watching cartoons and walking outside.

Shaw was abandoned at the age of 6 months. When he was found he could crawl and he initially made progress, but by the time he was 16 months old and was sent to a foster home, he was very thin and weak. After a few months in foster care he began to thrive again. Shaw loves to eat and shows patience in all areas except when he has to wait for his food! He gets along well with others and loves bright colorful toys that make sound.

Heinrich

heinrich-2016Boy, born 2009

Down syndrome, specific mixed developmental disorder, features of autism, farsightedness, atopic dermatitis, functional heart murmur, hydrocephalus. Due to a difficult birth, he was born with pneumonia, and intubated for a few days.

From a family who met him in 2015:  “Heinrich ran right up to me and asked to go up, and then enjoyed a play session full of jumping. He definitely has a lot of energy, and I was amazed at his gross motor skills. He loved the play area’s rocking horse!”

 

UPDATE as of June 2015:  Heinrich continues to make great improvements. He is communicating and asked to be picked up. He is strong, happy, and loves attention.

Update as of April 2013:  His development is delayed; he recently started to walk without help, but not yet steady. Emotions are weak, play activity is primitive, throws away toys, turns them around, puts into the mouth, sucks his fingers, makes stereotypic movements with his head, swings.

He’s not yet speaking, and it’s possible he has a hearing delay.  He eats with help, does not yet holds a spoon or the bottle, still it is hard for him to chew a hard food. The level of understanding is low, does not have motivation to make an activity.

photogirlGirl, Born November 2001

Down syndrome

Crystal is so pretty!  Dark hair and brown eyes.   She does have Down syndrome, but also has many facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome) as well.   Crystal has tremendous potential.  She has been significantly impacted by very poor vision and hearing, and that has resulted in lower cognition and physical abilities.  Imagine how her world could open up with medical treatment, glasses, and hearing aids!

Crystal can be assertive sometimes, so a family with older children is recommended.  Full medical and behavioral info available.  Older parents, large families, and single moms welcome.
