Lilly

Girl, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

Every once in awhile you come across a file with the sweetest, heartfelt expressions written about a child. That’s what I found in the file of precious Lilly, who recently turned one. Lilly’s file said things like “She would smile sweetly, just like a little angel without wings,” “She is very cute and favorable,” and “When someone had fun with her, she will smile innocently. It showed that she is a girl with good personality.” It is clear this baby is not only sweet, but adored!

Lilly is a good eater and sleeper and she really likes taking baths. She loves to play in the water and kicking the water with her feet makes her squeal with excitement. Lilly was turning from side to side when her file was prepared and she is receiving physical therapy. The staff believes she is going to continue to surprise them. It is our hope that Lilly can come home to her family before her 2nd birthday!

There is a $5,000 grant available through her current agency.

Kraig #29-10

guardianangelKraig_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.

Listed: September 2014

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.

When Chloe came into care as a toddler, she was non-verbal and had little exposure to stimulation and affection. After being in her foster home, six-year-old Chloe is now speaking full sentences primarily in English, has good comprehension skills, eats on her own, dances, sings and laughs. She is known as a funny, social and bright little girl who is quickly learning braille, counting objects, knows the phonetic sound of most letters and can identify everyone in the home by their voice or smell. She was recently accepted into a private school that will continue to help her thrive and focus on learning more braille, help with independent skills related to blindness, and meeting more friends. She loves to make everyone laugh, enjoys being silly and is well liked by her peers. Despite being blind, Chloe walks around the home independently, walks up and down stairs, rides on a tricycle, and jumps on a trampoline. It is noted that she has such great potential as she absorbs everything around her.

Lily

Girl, age 12

She loves to wear new dresses and new shoes, play with baby dolls, read books, color, laugh, give hugs and dance. She works with a gait trainer to walk for her cerebral palsy, but it’s noted that she has a preference to run. With the trainer, she is able to kick a soccer ball and use a scooter standing up. She is able to speak, uses a communication program so she is able to share her thoughts and needs with others and has started to spell and read short phonetic words. Her volunteer notes that Lily has an understanding of what it means to have a forever family and has a strong desire to have this herself.

Why hasn’t anyone chosen her? Don’t they know how amazing she is? Can’t they see how much joy she would bring to their family? Can’t they see that she is so much more than her cerebral palsy? That she is smart, she loves to laugh, she is gentle, and loves going to church. Her cerebral palsy doesn’t define her. – Lily’s foster mother

Lily is diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and HIV. She’s reported to be an eager learner and receives physical, speech and occupational therapies.

Eligible families may qualify for a grant through her current agency in addition to a $5,000 Child Specific Grant (exp 7/31/17).

He is learning to walk and takes several steps independently, or at least he was when his file was prepared a couple of months ago. I bet he is walking and running by now. He is also learning to communicate his needs. He understands simple commands. I had to laugh when I read that he favorite activity is football. Not bad for a baby who wasn’t quite walking!

Nolan has a $4,000 grant through his current agency.

$0.00 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!

Freddie

Boy, born 2012
PRC
Down syndrome

Freddie was abandoned at 7 months old. He is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and funnel chest. Freddie’s medical information is 3 years old, but we do have some recent information from his orphanage. While we are working to get an updated medical for him, the recent report, photos, and videos can give a good picture of Freddie’s development. Neither the medical or report indicate any significant delays with his physical development.

Freddie’s videos show him walking steadily, kicking a ball, and playing with blocks, indicating that his gross and fine motor skills appear to be on target. Freddie reportedly can understand simple language and is seen following directions in his videos, though we are not sure if Freddie is able to speak. Freddie attends school in the orphanage, but there is no language training available which inhibits his ability to learn to speak. His intelligence is slightly delayed compared to his peers, but he could potentially make progress with the proper services and interventions.

Freddie is said to be outgoing, active, and loving. The orphanage reports that he can make new friends easily and he is seen playing with other children in his videos. Freddie has a sweet smile and pleasant demeanor. He has some self-care ability; he reportedly can do simple tasks alone, but needs assistance with other tasks such as taking a shower. The orphanage reports that Freddie can have bowel and bladder control, but he does not at this time.

Freddie needs the love and support of a family to help him thrive. Could Freddie find a home with your family?

Luke

Boy, born 2007
PRC
Sensitive special need

Listed: June 2017

Luke has a sensitive special need – XY46. He’s in a very poor orphanage, where adoptive families have met him.   Luke is in a very under resourced orphanage in rural China where he is not able to attend school, lacks proper nutrition, and the opportunity to play with even basic toys.

Luke is a charming boy who has a close relationship with his caregivers and is known around the orphanage for his helpfulness. He is attentive when the little ones cry, and runs errands for his caregivers when they need an extra hand. Luke likes to play games with others, especially ball games. Luke is active and extroverted. His favorite meal is egg and pork!

Luke’s development is fully age-appropriate. He will need a family who understands the complexities of his medical need and can offer him the unconditional love and support he needs to flourish. We believe Luke will thrive in the loving care of a family like yours. We’ve met him and loved hanging out with this smart little guy! Is he the child you’ve been waiting for?

May

Girl, 2 years old
Atrial Septal Defect, premature birth, delayed psychomotor development

May was born prematurely and was faced with numerous surgical procedures, e.g. cardio surgical procedures and hernia repair. She has been diagnosed with loss in the intracardial and atrial septum. In 2014, she underwent a pulmonary banding and ligation of the arteries with success. Because Maya was born prematurely, she is delayed in psychomotor development. She attends rehabilitation programs and she receives numerous exercises to stimulate her development in all areas. The last psychological opinion made in 2015 indicated delays in psychomotor development, but it was stressed that she has spent most of her life in hospitals and was a premature baby. It is believed she will improve greatly both socially and physically if she is put in a stable and loving environment with more physical and social stimulation. It would be very helpful for her to be established in a family where she would receive more frequently extensive stimulation at home and with therapy. She stays at the child care facility where there are children with severe health problems, so the level of attention given to her is lower than recommended.

Blaine

Downs Syndrome, right cryptochordism, mass at right inguinal canal, inguinal hernia

A family recently met sweet Blaine while adopting their son:  My son came home in December (2016) and talks non-stop about his friend. He talks about how this little one was nice to him, gave him food and shared his blanket, etc. He also talks about how mean the nannies are to this little boy. My son doesn’t have anything to say about anyone else there except they aren’t nice. Initially I took it with a grain of salt but there is another little girl adopted from there in the last year who has told her family the exact same thing.

Oscar

Boy, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

It is impossible to look at these pictures and not smile. Oscar is the cutest little tennis shoe wearing one-year-old boy ever! Oscar was born in January of 2016 and his file just became ready recently. He was born with down syndrome. Oscar is able to hold his own bottle when drinking milk and he eats soft rice or porridge by spoon, hand-fed by his caretaker. He is a good sleeper are rarely wakes up at night. At 6 months of age, Oscar could roll over and could sit up with a little support. When on his stomach, he can stretch out to reach his toys and is able to hang onto them. At one, he was able to sit on his own and crawl. He can now stand while holding onto something or up against the wall. When he sees someone standing by his bed, he will stand up from a sitting position holding the bedrails and he will make sounds of “Ah” as if he’s speaking to adults. When he sees his caregiver coming with his bottle in her hand, he will crawl towards her almost asking for it. He’s a super content little man once he’s eaten and is full. Oscar has an easy-going personality and can get along with others well. He can move a toy from one hand to the other hand and responds when he is called. Oscar can understands others’ moods and emotions. When an adult speaks seriously, he will curl his lips. Oscar is more than ready for his forever family to see him and get him home while he is still so young.

There is a $5,000 grant available with the current agency.

Talbert #

 Boy: 2012

Listed 5/2017

Special needs: born to a mother with symptomatic epilepsy acquired following encephalitis, who was on anti-convulsant therapy and had epileptic seizures while pregnant.
Talbert was diagnosed with: Mixed specific disorders of the psychological development. Expressive speech disorder. Mild mental delay, with no or minimal disturbance of behavior. Bronchial asthma. Single febrile seizure (at the age of 3 years)

Talbert is radiant, playful and energetic boy. He likes to play with toy cars and soap bubbles. He has formed a preferred relationship with his foster mother. He does not demonstrate aggression or self-aggression.

Talbert makes progress over time, albeit slowly – the emotions he expresses and his playing are becoming more diverse over time;  his vocabulary has enriched and he can now tries to connect several words in simple sentences so he has progressed in the area of speech as well. It is expected that once Talbert gets provided with more regular and intensive sessions with a psychologist and a speech therapist, he would progress much further. Talbert has the capacity to develop further when placed in his forever family environment and given the chance to explore his surroundings and try new things more freely.

Video available.

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.
