Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect, unknown eye issue (not in file)

Delfina is a precious little girl who is described by her caretakers as spirited and sweet. She has lots of personality and snuggles to share! Delfina loved celebrating the holiday season with her nannies and friends. She especially enjoyed dressing up in festive hats and playing with jingle bells. Delfina loves getting her picture taken. Immediately after seeing a camera, she will get in front of it and pose or flash a great big smile. Delfina usually asks to see the pictures by plopping down on the photographer’s lap and pointing to the camera. Delfina has a big smile and an even bigger personality!

Staff say that she has matured and learned about stretching her imagination and playing with others. She likes to build and stack blocks, read books, and play outside. Watching Delfina explore the world around her is a joy, and between her wonderful hugs and loving pats on the back, she’s won over all of her caretakers’ hearts. Delfina’s nannies love sharing about how smart, strong, and adorable she is. Her enthusiasm for life is endearing. Whenever you introduce her to a new toy or game, she doesn’t hesitate to join in on the fun. Popping bubbles is her current favorite activity and the joy she exudes is contagious!

Delfina was born with Down syndrome and CHD- TOF, Perimembranous VSD, Pulmonary stenosis, Right ventricular hypertrophy, and PFO. We are trying to find out if she has had any surgeries, because her outdated medical file doesn’t mention any. It also appears that Delfina has had something happen to her right eye since her file was prepared. We are not sure if she has any vision in that eye or not, but are also looking to get more information about that. It’s clear Delfina brings so much joy to her caretakers. We hope her forever family will see her soon, so they don’t continue to miss out on that joy!

Delfina has a $1,000 Agency grant with a specific agency for her adoption.

Down syndrome, CHD-VSD (post-op)

Kora is a beautiful little girl with a beautiful smile and cute little dimples! Kora was born with Down syndrome and a CHD-VSD, for which she has had surgery to correct. By 2.5 years of age, Kora was walking forwards and backwards independently. She can understand simple instructions and helps look after other children near her. If another child has a runny nose, the caretaker will say “Kora, wipe the nose for your friend with the towel” and she would use the towel to help clean the child. She would pass it to the caretaker and then get another towel to clean another child up. Her caregiver will give her a thumbs up and praise her for being so great. At the end of an activity, she will put away toys with the other children. Kora likes music and dancing to the beat. She gets along well with other children and will kiss them or put her hand on her mouth and blow them a kiss. She will wave her hands to say goodbye. Kora is also very happy to play outdoors! She loves to pull the caretaker’s hands to go upstairs and walk on the bridge. She enjoys looking around and touching flowers and grasses after seeing them.

In May of 2019, Kora started attending the Little Sister’s Pre-School Program. She adapted well to going to school. She can move her stool to the designated position when she comes into the classroom and will sit down happily. She does not speak much, but she can understand the teacher’s instructions and will cooperate positively. When the teacher calls her name, she can raise her hands up to indicate that she is there. She will imitate the teacher to dance along to the music in class. Kora can hold a pen to write on the blank paper. She will curiously touch the lines she draws with the other hand. When the teacher says it is time to go outside, Kora always stands up and runs to the door. She likes interaction with people too and is not scared of new people. Kora has a good appetite and she likes snacks. She is a sound sleeper. Kora is ready for a forever family! Could that family be yours?

There is a $1,000 Agency Grant with a specific adoption agency to help a family bring Kora home!

Down syndrome

Handsome Harley is described as a sunny, active, passionate, kind, and helpful little boy! He is a very happy boy who loves to smile. Harley likes helping other children who have physical limitations in any way that he can. When he sees his teacher busy with children who are physically weaker, he will give her a hand. He often helps push one child in a wheelchair and helps pull another child to get to and from school. Harley likes singing and dancing! He has a strong music sense and good imitating abilities. Harley’s gross motor skills are good too. He can catch a ball and his favorite outdoor activities are throwing sand bags or colorful balls. Harley also likes picking vegetables and fruits in the garden with his friends. Harley has made great improvement with his language skills since coming into care. He can count from 1-10 clearly with the teacher. By age seven, he could say some simple daily words under the teacher and mom’s patient guidance, such as: “take the candy,” “I am Harley,” etc. He can use simple words, sentences, and gestures to express his needs. When his teacher asks, “Who is your good friend, Harley?” he will point at DZ and say loudly, “DZ!” If other children scream, he will imitate his teacher and, though not clearly, he will say “softly and slowly.” He is currently learning to use personal pronouns for daily communication, such as: me and you.

At school, Harley can raise his hand and answer questions actively when asked. He positively participates in activities. He is said to like to ask the teacher questions to get to the bottom of things if it was something he did not understand. Harley’s concentration has improved too. He can listen to other children’s self introductions quietly, can identify a circle and a triangle, and can find similar shapes around him. Harley is said to be very warm towards his foster mom, teacher, and friends. When he sees his foster mom or teacher’s disheveled hair, he can help manage their hair. Harley was born with Down syndrome, but he most certainly was born with a heart of gold! It is our hope that Harley’s family sees him soon. He is certain to be a blessing!

There is a $1,500 agency grant for Harley’s adoption, with a specific adoption agency.

Leann is fond of drawing and is so careful in each drawing class. She always enjoys drawing class! Leann loves to play shadow games too. Every time she goes outside, she likes to do hand movements in the sun while observing her own shadows and hand movements.

Compared to other children with Down syndrome, Leann’s language expression is better. She is fond of imitating sounds and words the teacher says. She can say baba, mama, jiejie, ayi, and gainai clearly, repeating the teacher. She is able to sing familiar songs and can state other children’s names in the class. Leann observes the details and emotions around her and understands instructions from her teacher and caretaker. She can open the door, close the door, wash her hands, eat a meal, and put on her shoes without help. She always puts her shoes in the designated location on her own initiative before going to sleep. Her caretaker will gesture to give her a kiss and she kisses her cheek right away. The caretaker will then say “the other side?” Leann then kisses the other side of her cheek! It’s so sweet and cute!

Leann is studying in a preschool class. She goes to class and plays well with the other children. She actively responds to the teacher in class. Leann is happy to help the teachers and children around her.

Leann is silent when she is unhappy and will sulk in the corner. She will cry if she does something wrong and the teacher criticizes her. In class, she is unhappy if she doesn’t get the teacher’s praise. Leann has high self-esteem and she is going to thrive in a loving family! We can’t wait to see who that lucky family will be!

Blind

Madeline is an adorable little girl with a beautiful smile! Madeline recently spent a year at a foster home for blind and visually impaired orphans. Staff at the foster home said, “Watching Madeline blossom from an overly timid and scared child into a lively and happy little girl has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Madeline is still shy, but she has the sweetest smile when she accomplishes something new. She was very nervous the first time we took her to the pool, but after a few seconds with her feet in the water she was ready to jump right in! I’ve never seen her happier than when she’s playing in the pool. Madeline loves hugs and kisses, when she hears the voice of someone she loves she will call out to great them and walk over for a hug. She will bring so much brightness and love to a forever family.”

Madeline was learning cane skills and can navigate short routes on her own, and longer routes with someone telling her where to go. She can express her basic needs such as when she is hungry, thirsty or needs to go to the bathroom, but only when she is asked directly. Madeline follows directions and is clearly very smart, but selective about when she speaks. Towards the end of her time at the foster home, Madeline was starting to speak spontaneously and in more complex sentences, as she felt safe there. She was also learning English and had fantastic pronunciation. Madeline was recalled to her orphanage and she desperately needs a family to get to her so she doesn’t regress from all that she had gained!

December 2019 Written Update:
Self-care: She can walk, run under the guidance of someone else, brush her teeth, wash her face, and eat by herself with a spoon. However, food sometimes drops mid-way due to her vision issue. She can use the toilet on her own, but she needs adults to take her to the toilet.

Emotion: She likes to give hugs to those she knows well. She wants hugs from others too. She is very close to her foster mom and her teachers. She trusts and relies on those she knows. She usually keeps a stable mood, but when she cannot find the toys she wants, she will get upset and anxious.

Cognition: She can tell different people apart by listening to their voice and she knows what she wants or doesn’t want. She also knows if she needs to go to the toilet. Under the guidance of her teachers, she can count numbers and recite poems and three-character sutras.

Speech: She says hello to the teacher and goodbye when she leaves. She can complete simple dialogue with the teacher or foster parents. When you ask her simple questions, she will respond to you. She can introduce herself.

Motor: She can walk independently under the guidance of adults and can run and jump with support of a hand. Her hands grasp things very well. She can play with toys and construction blocks. She can ride a twist car and follow the music to do morning exercises.

Many videos of Madeline are available!

Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus

Magnolia is a precious little girl, who is described as being extroverted and sweet tempered. She is fairly active, talkative, and has quick reaction time. Magnolia enjoys singing and listening to music. She gets along well with others and likes playing outdoors with her friends and with toy cars. Magnolia lives with a foster family and though she likes to be cuddled by her foster grandfather, she is closest with her foster grandmother. She is a good sleeper and sleeps in her own bed. She is not a picky eater, though she has been spoiled by her foster grandparents who tend to hand-feed her and let her use a bottle to drink her drinks from. Magnolia’s favorite foods are meat, dumplings, noodles, vegetables, and fruits. Magnolia can walk independently. She was able to imitate words and say simple things like, “What is this?” Her intelligence was said to be delayed compared to her peers, but her orphanage also seems to say this about many children in their care.

In January of 2014, Magnolia received surgery for lumbar spinal meningocele and hydrocephalus. She had good recovery after the surgery, though she is not toilet trained. We are unsure if that is a result of her meningocele surgery or because she just hadn’t been trained yet, but a family should be prepared for her to be incontinent. An update from August (you can read the full update below) mentions that Magnolia has had a handful of seizures over the years. Magnolia has the sweetest little face with the cutest little voice.

Magnolia has a $2,500 agency grant for her adoption with a specific adoption agency. You have to watch her sweet videos!  The agency has several.

Diagnosis: Congenital cardiac malformation – Aortic valve stenosis. Status after aortic valve commissurotomy. Aortic coarctation resection. Slight aortic insufficiency. Peripheral pulmonary stenosis. Moderate to severe mental disability.

Aurora’s birth family was not aware of any medical issues when she was born. When she was a month old, she got sick and an examination at the hospital found that she had a serious heart condition that required medical care. Aurora spent 60 days in the hospital receiving surgery and treatment for her heart condition. When she was released from the hospital, she was placed in the orphanage, where she still lives. Her most recent Echocardiography results showed: aortic dysplasia ibicuspidia with aortic stenosis and insufficiency. Peripheral pulmonary stenosis. Little Left – Right Shunt through the fossa ovalis(FO) and almost closed retro tricuspid ventricular defect. Detailed medical records explaining all of the surgeries, testing, and medical care regarding her heart are available for interested families.

Developmentally, Aurora is delayed. She walks, climbs stairs, and climbs up onto furniture. Her fine motor skills are developing. She plays with toys with some direction from adults and has been working on skills such as stacking blocks on top of each other. She currently still prefers interacting with toys for sensory input (shaking toys to hear the sounds they make, musical toys, toys that roll, etc). She will hold a crayon and scribble on paper. The orphanage has submitted an application for her to attend a special needs kindergarten so that she can receive therapy and instruction from a resource teacher. She does not talk, and there is a sentence in her report that mentions reduced hearing. It is unknown how well she hears and if this may have some impact on her speech and development.

She knows when she is called by name and is able to communicate when she needs help. She is said to adapt very well, but is afraid of strangers.

Diagnosis: Infantile Cerebral Palsy – spastic quadric paresis. Muscle hypertonia. Delay in the neuro-psychological development. Hydronephrosis 1st degree

Listed: August 2017

Vinny is an adorable little boy that is living in an orphanage in Eastern Europe. He has poor muscle tone and active movements. Coordination is poor as well due to walking on his toes when trying to step (with help). He is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. At the age of 3 months old, he began reacting to sound and looking at objects. Vinny has good control of his head and can roll on his stomach and back. He does not attempt to walk and he has trouble sitting without support. He has spastically increased muscle tone. He does well holding objects but does not pass them hand to hand, but rather to his mouth. Vinny has a good attention span and does well with recognizing individuals. His behavior is calm and very playful when being interacted with. He listens when being communicated with and tries to interact back with syllables and noises. Vinny is a picky eater and very dependent on the work staff.

Update: Jan 2020

Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy-Spastic Quadriparesis. Symptomatic epilepsy. Congenital anomalies syndrome that affects predominantly the facial area. 

Vinny can turn from his back to his belly and vice versa. He doesn’t make attempts to stand up and he is unstable when sitting without support. He has spastic muscle tone of the upper and lower extremities. He registers visual, hearing and tactile stimuli. His attention is stable if he is interested in the activity. He differentiates familiar people from strangers, recognizes voices and situations. He is happy and smiles when teased from an adult. He vocalizes and pronounces spontaneous syllables. He listens when somebody talks to him. He turns around to the source of a sound or movement. He often opens his mouth. His reaction to adults is positive – he looks at the adult and is happy.

He looks at, follows, and sometimes reaches with uncoordinated moves for toys, or tries to pick up a nearby object of interest. He grabs and holds a suitable toy (like a rattle) in his hand. He looks at it briefly, tries to swing it by moving his hand up and down, brings it to his mouth or throws it (the sound of the toy falling causes the child to laugh and repeat the action).
