He loves to be cuddled and loves to speak baby babble and play with his lips so that they make sounds, and he repeats words. He learned how to crawl and to stand and he started to walk holding hands with one of his ayis. Since he has been back at his orphanage, he has been very unhappy. Kellin cries all of the time and he does not receive the care and attention that he needs. He mostly lies in his crib all day and he cries. This is such a different baby to the boy when he was when he was in a loving foster home and we know that with the love and attention of a family, he will return to his happy, healthy self.

Her single kidney is functioning ok now, but she’s had a history of reflux and urinary tract infections. Talia has had a vesicostomy (a surgical opening in the bladder that allows urine to drain through a hole in her lower belly) and may need additional surgeries in the future. She is also diagnosed with scoliosis. Talia is crawling, standing, and cruising but not walking independently yet. Her language development is on target – her receptive language is good and she says many simple words and phrases.

Gracie and George #

O

Girl, born in 2007.  She has a delay in neuro-psychical development and epileptic seizures.

She is very sweet and charming girl, with very big eyes and eyelashes. She is hyperactive child, who can not stay at one place long time. When you want to attract her attention and she is busy with doing something else, she does not pay any attention to you. When she feels uneasy and can not answer or does not want to answer some question, she starts asking her interlocutor questions. Her speech is not so clear and even some words are not understandable and is more like baby speech. She has speech problem and at the kindergarten she works with speech therapist.  She knows her age. She recognizes some of the basic colors but does not want to count.  She is very self-willed and makes the things that she wants to. She is more aggressive and hyperactive than her brother.

Boy, born in 2005.   He has a delay in neuro-psychical development and mental delay.

The boy is older than his sister but he has more delays than her. He is in second grade in the local school in the village where he lives. Unfortunately he still can not read, can not solve math problems. Before his placement in the foster family nobody cared for his knowledge and habits. Now he can count to 9 (after 9 he says 11 ). He is a child who needs a lot of work in order to master more habits and knowledge because he has some potential.

These children used to live in their bio family but they were not well taken care of. They have delays but with more professional work and individual activities, these children can have better progress. They are adorable children who really need patience, love and care. They know the life in foster families but are separated because the opinion of the social workers is that none of their foster families could manage these two children if they are placed together – because they are not so obedient.

Because we only have their files for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

Easton

40402210550 (2)Boy, born July 2006

Multiple congenital malformations, condition similar to CP.

 

Nevermind the pink — Easton is a boy!

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

From a family who met him in March 2014:

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

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

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.

Neal

Neal Photo 3 rec. Jan-2013Sweet Neal was born in January of 2009 and has been diagnosed with perinatal encephalopathy and psychomotor development delay. We have reports that his doctor has stated that there is a possibility that Neal may be able to walk in the future, but there are no guarantees. He is able to express himself very well. He is a very kind little boy and is very much loved.

Update August 2012: Neal is very shy with people he does not know well, but his caretakers state that he is very outgoing and personable with those he knows well. He can say poems and he is very friendly and sociable. He once told his caretakers that one day he will walk, and they are working on therapy. Currently, he is not so strong but little by little he is progressing.

Update from January 2013: Our agency staff representative visited Neal in January and provided the following update. Neal speaks, understands the speech addressed to him, and recognizes everybody. He is very articulate, using complex sentences and knows poems and songs by heart. With physical therapy he has acquired better head control and is using his hands more. Therapists are working on his legs as well. With the help of physical therapy his doctors feel he will, little by little, develop his muscles. At this point he can stand for a second, which is big progress. Plus he is very smart and he himself wants to stand, walk and be stronger. It is very touching when he says so. It has only been a year and a half that he has been at the orphanage, and all that period of time they have done therapy, only not so intensive. If an intensive therapy was available for him he would have better progress.

Caregiver update March 2014: Everybody agrees the progress that Neal has made by now is huge. He’s able to move his hands and is doing really well. A very smart and sweet boy!

Nigel

Nigel Photo 2 rec. 12-3-12Nigel was born prematurely at 29 weeks gestation in February of 2007, weighing 1500g. At the age of two months, Nigel was diagnosed with hypertensive syndrome and deformation of the head. A neurologist has also stated that his cerebellum is small and that is why he had some problems with coordination (in the past).

Nigel was brought to the orphanage when he was 5 months old and lived with his parents until that time. At the orphanage his issues with coordination improved and at present there are no concerns. He is able to walk, run and is very active. After being placed in the orphanage it was also found that he has a hearing impairment. He has not had a full hearing screen but it has been suggested that his impairment is rather severe. His caretakers are apprehensive of anesthesia needing to be used to check the issue further and will wait to see if there are other options. Nigel also has vision impairment, but he does not wear glasses at this time as he ends up breaking them. He is described as a happy boy, who is also very neat. He does not like when something is not in its place or the table is dirty or his clothes are dirty. He lets the caretakers know about it and ask them to clean it. He does not speak and does not say sounds, but is able to let his caretakers know what he wants by gestures. He loves going outside and is also very friendly.

Callum

Callum Photo 2 Jul-2013Happy Callum was born in February of 2010 and has been diagnosed with “defect of urinary and reproductive organs, external auditory canal atresia of the right ear”.

His caretakers state that he is a very sweet, smiley boy. He knows his caretakers and seems to respond to them. He is a little behind developmentally but they think he will catch up with assistance.

Update from January 2013: After visiting with Callum in January, our agency representative had the following update. Although Callum has some issues with one ear, he is still able to hear. He can walk, but does not speak. He can hear and understand simple tasks. Callum is a very reserved, calm and friendly boy. He likes to play by himself rather than with the other children. He is also very affectionate and likes when people love him and say good things to him. He likes to have his privacy and when he is playing with toys he does not like when somebody interrupts him. He has a good appetite, but has his favorite foods; if he does not like something he will refuse to eat it, as any typical toddler does! Additional photos and videos available upon request from the agency.

Update May 2013: After visiting with Callum in May, our agency representative had the following update. Recently, Callum was taken for a medical examination. The result showed that he does not have one kidney and the other is small. But he is feeling not bad. He still is not speaking or trying to speak. He understands and makes his caretakers understand what he wants with gestures and expressions. It appears that he can hear something, but probably not enough to speak yet. He is playful and friendly as usual, but he loves attention, and if you do not pay attention to him, he may start to cry and become very fussy. He wants visitors to play with him, and if you play with other child he may go to the corner, sit there by himself and feel upset.

Mackenzie

Mackenzie Photo 6 rec. 1-22-014Girl, born November, 2008
Cerebral palsy and congenital developmental defect (cleft palate, right sided syndactyly).

Due to Mackenzie’s difficulty gaining weight, she did not have an operation for her cleft palate, but with time it has closed on its own. As her cleft palate closed itself, she is now able to eat almost everything, and has started to gain weight better. She stands only holding on something, but is able to crawl and scoot around well. She is very smiley and likes to be loved. She knows her name and reacts to it. She seems to know the caretakers, but her reactions and the way she plays corresponds to a one year old child. She plays with toys; but when she sees something new, she wants to take it to her mouth first. She does not speak and does not make sounds. Additional photos, video and report available upon request from the agency.

Comments from a current traveling family: “While visiting with our daughter [in the same orphanage] we had the chance to spend some time with “Mackenzie”. Wow… She is an amazing little girl with such a will for life. She shows such determination in everything she does and truly lives her life not letting anything get her down or in her way. She is such a happy little girl with the most contagious beautiful smile. Her diagnosis does not define her and it is clear that she will live life to the fullest if given the chance. She loves when she is talked to, loves listening to music and embraces the touch of others. She is loved dearly by everyone around her while she waits patiently for her forever family.”

When she is told to go potty, she can go to the bedpan and take off her trousers and sit on it. Now she can make some simple words, such as yi and ya. She is careful to study, and is confident; in the activity of stringing beads, coloring, playing the cap of a bottle she is very interested in them and focuses on them. She can imitate pointing to facial features. She is kind and helps other children; when she falls down in walking, teachers and children would help her and encourage her.

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.

Brandi

Brandi 2013Guardian Angel

Girl, Born August 2007
CP, microcephaly, hearing loss

 

Little Brandi is much loved….she has CP and microcephaly, but is physically active and in need of a forever family.

From her medical records:  “lack of development of brain from birth” ,”specific problems of psychological development”, “loss of hearing in both ears”

Update June 2013:
She has been transferred to the older children’s orphanage!  She is such a sweetheart and loved the music and the kids dancing. She was clapping her hands and had a huge smile on her face when she was watching them. She wasn’t so sure about participating but she watched everyone else. I wished I got a picture of her smiling but unfortunately I think the camera made some of the kids nervous and I couldn’t get a smile out of her!

I have a video but for privacy reasons I can’t put it on her profile but if a family is considering her I would be happy to share!

Kayla

Guardian Angel

Girl, born August 2007

Diagnosis info coming soon.

She cannot walk and her mental development is normal.

From a family who met her in late 2013:
Kayla is about the sweetest child you could ever imagine. She is full of smiles and giggles. We saw her everyday for several weeks and I was able to play with her a few times. We played a game in which I would hand her a block and she would put it into a bag. She loved it. 40303182538 Kayla (1)She prefers to use her left hand although if I’d put the block out of reach of her left hand she could use her right. She is constantly in a stroller. I never saw her anywhere else. I did notice she seemed to have good control over her legs. I bet she could walk with PT and some love! She is small for her age. She needs dental care now. She made good eye contact and watched what I was doing. I was able to give her simple instructions despite the language barrier and she followed them. I truly believe she would absolutely thrive in a family. And a family would be beyond blessed by her sweet little self.

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!

We are so thrilled to be able to relist sweet Nathaniel!  He is alive and growing!

From a family who met him in April 2013:
Nathaniel was our little boy’s neighbor in the infirmary. When we first saw him, we were so sad for his condition and the pain it must cause him daily. But then his eyes met mine, and his joy in just that interaction traveled quickly to his sweet smile. We became fast friends through the windows separating the rooms, playing peek a boo and smiling at one another. He began to look for us and to squeal with joy when we came for our daily visits. He taught me so much about true joy in our weeks there. I pray that a family will come forward soon to claim him. I know they will be blessed beyond measure by this amazing little boy! I don’t know a lot about his diagnosis, but I know that the little boy we spent time interacting with was full of life and hope.
