Very nice, affectionate child. Helps caregivers, participates in orphanage performances, likes to study.

From a family who met him: Charlie is a real sweetheart. He is friendly to all, well behaved, well mannered and follows directions well. He loves to draw and color. He gets along well with the other children in his groupa. He can talk and feeds himself and dresses himself. He would fit in well with younger or older children! He was reserved around us but lit up when I started talking to him. His hugs are precious. He is well-loved by the other children and the workers.

Kandie #45-3

KandieGirl, age: 13
Diagnosis: Down syndrome

Kandie is currently living in a group home. She has well developed gross motor skills(walks, runs, etc). She talks using simple phrases and questions. She can memorize poems and songs. She understands everything that is said to her, though like some kids with Down syndrome, she has difficulty with inferring, so the staff uses short simple sentences and concrete vocabulary when providing directions. She can count to 5 independently and to 10 with some assistance. She can write a few letters. She works hard while in school and does not have any behavior issues. She is completely toilet trained. She bathes herself with supervision from an adult. She serves and cleans off the table after meal time when it is her turn (all the children in the group home take turns doing this). She makes her own bed. She enjoys playing with the other children, watching TV and listening to music.

Josie Lynne 3Girl, born September 2001
PRC
postoperative varus of feet

Josie Lynne needs a family PRIOR to her birthday in September 2015!

Josie Lynne cares for each person around her and loves to help. She helps her foster mother because she is concerned that her foster mother may get too tired from all the household chores. Her foster brother is blind and she always, on her own initiative, helps him to do things such as preparing toothpaste, getting water, clothes, and shoes, holding his hands and leading him when being outside. When celebrating the National Day they visited the zoo, she would tell her foster brother what was happening and the appearances and living habits of all kinds of animals. They even saw the pandas’ performances. She happily told him how a panda turned a somersault. She happily told him how a panda turned a somersault. He was excited and happily said, “a panda is so cute, Josie, you are very good at telling those things, it seems I see the panda.” Josie Lynne has studied in the Little Sister program for 2 years. She really likes school. Although she has poor ability of understanding, she loves studying with good learning habits and attitude. The teachers love reviewing her homework because she writes down words neatly and formally. Josie Lynne especially loves dancing with beautiful gestures. Josie Lynne is best friends with Elizabeth who is her foster sister.

Artemis

ArtemisBoy, 2.5 years old
H-C
Delays in development

Artemis is a sweet little guy with delays in development. He came to us at two years old severely malnourished, but is now gaining weight and showing definite signs of progress. This sweetie is learning to sit up and is getting quite stable when he uses his hands for support. He has even started using one hand to play with a toy while he is sitting. Artemis also loves to move his legs around and can often be seen laying on his back holding his feet in the air or wiggling his legs and arms. Artemis is a picky eater and does better if his food is soft. It is possible that Artemis has some hearing loss as well. We have not been able to have this officially tested, but he often does not respond to noises around him. He does, however, love to watch and observe his world. He is great at making eye contact and loves staring at and touching faces. His smile is beautiful and he loves to be tickled and held.

Jubilee

JubileeGirl, 17 months old
H-C
Cerebral palsy and temporal lobe epilepsy

Sweet Jubilee is doing well. She has cerebral palsy and is on medication to control her seizures. Jubilee was a severely malnourished baby when we first met her, but she has gained weight well and is now a chubby little lady. Jubilee cannot sit up or roll over on her own, but she is receiving therapy to help increase her strength. She loves to stare at faces and responds really well to touch; if she is crying, she is easily soothed by being held. Only recently has Jubilee started to smile and laugh, and it is adorable. Sometimes, she will do this in response to being tickled, but over the past couple of weeks, we have seen her smile come out even more easily. Often a simple greeting or quick cuddle are enough to bring out Jubilee’s smile and it is sure to brighten your day.

Tadd likes to imitate and will sometimes imitate a singing and dancing show on TV. He cannot walk independently yet, but he can walk around his a walker. He likes to play with the other children and with all kinds of toys. Sometimes he will sit quietly and watch the caretaker, but his favorite thing to do is to play peek-a-boo with the caretakers.

Sensitive special need

6.5 year old Jaime is listed as a female, but the file mentions the diagnosis being congenital false sexes deformity (more masculinity, chromosome diagnosis: 46 XY).

Ben

benBoy, born 2009
Deep mental delay, Failure to Thrive

From a family who has met him many times:
This sweet boy is very beautiful, serious, and fragile. He is very thin, and even though with careful feeding he is finally able to hold his food down, he still is not gaining weight. He is able to sit up on his own and stand, while holding on to the rails of his crib. He can walk while holding on to someone’s finger. No one at the institution has ever seen him smile and he is nonverbal. We aren’t sure what is going on inside him, but we long to see some sort of response in his face. One great thing we have noticed in the past couple of months is that he now cries when his special nanny leaves the room. When she comes back in the room and calls his name he quiets instantly! He loves to be held and cuddled, and he really likes being outside. He simply cannot thrive in the institutional environment. He needs medical treatment and therapy, , but most of all he needs the love of a family. He needs somewhere where he can be safe and loved with abandon.

Isaiahu

isaiahBoy, born 2009
Deep mental delay, Cerebral palsy

From a family who has met him many times:
This little guy came to the institution at the beginning of last summer and we have seen him blossom under the care of a specially hired nanny. He is nonverbal, but he has the best laugh. He giggles and smiles very easily. The only time we hear him cry is when he is jealous that he doesn’t have his nanny’s full attention. He loves to be taken outside, and he loves to play with his mobile that hangs above his crib. He has a good appetite and is learning how to better eat by spoon instead of by bottle. He is slowly learning to hold his head up, but cannot sit or roll over, as he has had no therapy of any kind. He would absolutely thrive with the love of a family. He is pure sunshine!

Aaron

aaronBoy, born 2003
Waiting on medical diagnoses

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.

Brooke (4)

Brooke (3)Girl, born June 2008

Down syndrome

Brooke is a happy little girl and always laughs every day. Not only she is a good helper for her teacher, but also is a “big sister” to the other children. Brooke will help other children on her own initiative. She is able to do some things independently and also does well following directions and completing tasks with guidance. Brooke greets visitors on her own initiative and holds their hand to show them to her classroom where she introduces her teachers and friends to them. Brooke can distinguish objects by colors, sizes, kinds, and shapes. With prompts she can state the names, colors and simple purposes of daily used commodities. She can count numbers 1-10 and can finish basic hand fine motor tasks alone(such as take, grasp and pinch). With the help of her teacher, Brooke can do some fine motor skills such as dig, copy, draw, and colors in the shape drawn. Brooke is able to state her basic wants and needs, but her speech is often unclear. Brooke can also sing some basic children’s songs and recite a couple of children’s poems. Brooke is able to walk, run and jump independently and likes to dance to music. This sweet girl is waiting for a family to call her own. Is that family yours?

Milo #

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.

Tanner is a very bright boy, who recently learned how to play a musical instrument after just two classes! He was very nervous when our staff were visiting, but communicated very well. He likes to speak English and showed us a little of what he knows! Physically he is very small due to his serious heart condition. His lips were blue and his fingers were stumped when we saw him. He gets along very well with other children, and says he’d love a family with an older brother! He has good self-care skills, including dressing himself. He is in desperate need of a family to get him medical care.

Her reports show she received a lot of attention when she was younger, and that caregivers worked with her to gain confidence to walk on her own. The last thing she told our staff was “Please find me a family- I really want a family!

From the orphanage: The girl needs a family asap. She is a kind child surviving with no parents. She requires much individual care because her educational ability is very low. In her orphanage she does not follow instructions; her vocabulary is very poor; she is severe speech delayed. She does not like to play with other children in her orphanage, she is on her own. She wants more attention than her caregivers are able to provide her with.

Theresa may take a little while to warm up to strangers, but once she does she is quick to smile! You will smile at her sweet face and fabulous bouncy pigtails. She loves any toys with music or sound, as well as looking at books. A good little mimic, she often imitates adults; for instance when she sees adults drinking water, she will pick up a cup and pretend to drink too! She understands instructions and will follow simple commands. She can use motion and gestures to express her needs, and can speak simple two word phrases, such as “I want.” She also calls for people, using “mama” or “nanny.” She is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and receives rehab training once a week. As of August she could walk a few steps with assistance, and stand with support from caregivers. She was living with a foster family for a while; and may or may not be still there at the time of this writing.

Leroy

LeroyBoy, born December 2005
PRC
Cerebral palsy

Leroy came into care as a baby, and by the time he was two and a half his caregivers were already describing him as extroverted, clever and with sparkling eyes full of mischief. An active little guy, he loved to dance happily in his chair to music. Even as a little tyke, he showed a calm and patient nature when adults were too busy to play with him, and he loved to interact with them when they had time. He’s grown into a handsome boy who lived for some time with a foster family including a mother, father, and another boy a year older who was also a foster child. When agency staff met him in 2010, despite having been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, he was walking independently for short distances, and he could run but would sometimes fall. At that time he wasn’t speaking very much. We’re looking forward to the update we’ve requested, to see how he’s doing now. Like all kids, Leroy needs the love and support of a forever family.

The application fee and pre-approval deposit has been waived for Leroy. In addition, there is a $4000 Child Grant that may be available to families through the agency.

Cerebral palsy

Percy is a sweet, studious boy, who takes his lessons at the orphanage very seriously. On a recent trip his caregivers told our staff right away that he’s a very bright boy; he then demonstrated how well he reads, and showed off his homework. He especially enjoys reading fairy tales, and can’t help laughing out loud when he reads them. His favorite activity is to go play outside with the other children, often they’ll gather around him to hear him recite a story. He’s also learning math, writing, and computer skills. His cerebral palsy mainly affects his legs, and he uses a wheelchair to get around; one of his arms is slightly affected. However, he is completely independent in daily life, feeding, dressing, and using the bathroom without assistance. He made a point of telling our staff that he wants a whole family, even with dogs and cats! He was nervous about learning English, so he was learning English words to prepare.

Felicity

FelicityGirl, born February 2011
PRC

Felicity is a curious little girl with bright eyes, who seemed totally comfortable navigating a room full of strangers when our staff visited her orphanage. She’s a very social little girl, who loves to be playing with other kids. She has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. A natural little leader, she can become loud trying to get the other children’s attention and get them to follow her! Her favorite activity is to go outside and play on the slides and swings. The doctor who traveled with our staff felt she follows directions well and is creative in finding solutions. Sometimes she will imitate people on TV, and she enjoys dancing when her caregiver plays piano. She’s a very sweet girl, who will help her nannies move chairs, and give up her seat for other kids. When she sees a caregiver sit down to rest, she will even go give them a backrub! She knows to get a rag and clean up spills without being asked. Her motor skills are good; she can run, jump, and go up and down stairs. Her language is delayed, currently she can just say “Ma” and babble, but she has very good understanding of what is said to her. She is potty trained during the day and wears a diaper at night.

There is a $4000 Child Grant that may be available to families through the agency.

Esther

EstherGirl, born January 2009
PRC
Down syndrome, Post-op CHD

Esther is an outgoing little girl who filled the room with her own high-energy sunshine when our staff saw her on a trip. Everything she saw delighted her- the giant rolling balls, brightly colored pipe cleaners, blocks to stack. She has Down syndrome, and seems to have good motor skills; she can run and jump, but her verbal skills are currently limited to “mama,” “baba,” and some expressive syllables. However she will also use gestures to express herself, and understand directions from her nannies. This curious little girl likes playing on the playground and enjoys all sorts of toys. Her nanny told our staff she’s very good at imitating what others around her are doing. When they sit down to rest, she will pat their backs, and if other children are crying, she will comfort them with a cuddle. Her self-care skills are good, she can feed and dress herself. She has had surgery for a heart condition, and the doctor with our staff didn’t hear any murmurs.

Carly

CarlyGirl, born November 2012
PRC
Down syndrome

Carly is a chubby little girl, who was quite relaxed and content when our staff visited her orphanage. She seemed perfectly happy on her nanny’s lap, and reached with curiosity for the things handed to her. She has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. An extroverted little girl, she’s not afraid of strangers, and loves to be held, but can also entertain herself playing in her crib. She isn’t speaking yet, but will say “ah” to communicate, and understands simple directions. When she sees other children eating, she’ll reach for her caregiver like she’s asking for food too. She can roll over, sit and crawl, and though our staff saw she can bear weight, she’s not motivated to stand or walk yet. She can feed herself finger foods and hold her bottle to drink, and cooperate when getting dressed. She loves colorful balls, and dancing along with music! We have many photos and videos of this cute little one!

Apert Syndrome

Be prepared to cuddle and hug as they are Milo’s favorite things to do!  And how could you possibly resist, after you meet this sweet, happy and handsome little toddler? Milo came into care at just a few days old and was diagnosed with Apert Syndrome and laryngomalacia.

He had a difficult start but with the love and attention of his foster family he grew stronger and began to catch up with his milestones. By summer 2013 he could sit up independently, respond when called, frequently share a smile, and scoot around in his walker. He loved to be playfully teased, cuddled and hugged and to play on a cell phone.

Milo lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with his older foster sister with whom he is very close. It would be wonderful if he and Mikayla could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

File lists Symphysodactylia (not mentioned in the file, but she is thought to have Apert Syndrome)

Mikayla is a five year old full of personality and energy. This little lady knows what she wants and loves to have her photo taken and likes to use money to buy things by herself. She is described as active and outgoing and always has a smile ready for anyone around, just in case they might have a camera. She also likes dogs and playing outdoors.

Between 7-9 months she mastered crawling, could make single syllable sound like dad and mom, reach out for objects, and knew when her name was called. During her 10-12 months she could stand by herself then learned to walk alone for a few steps, she was also able to wave bye-bye, point to an object she wanted, sneak open a cabinet to find something she wanted and throw it playfully.

By two she could walk on her own and began to feed herself with a spoon. She was trying more independent tasks like taking off her shoes and socks and going to the toilet by herself. She also began to speak some simple words. Growing more independent at 3 years old, she likes to mimic the adults by helping to sweep the floors and can go upstairs and downstairs.

Mikayla lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with her little foster brother (Milo) with whom she is very close and adores. It would be wonderful if she and Milo could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

Down syndrome, post-op CHD

Spring is 2 years old, and just adorable! She came into care when she was 7 months old (approximately), and was found to have Down syndrome as well as a congenital heart defect. She had surgery in 2013 to correct the TOF/ASD (Tetrology of Fallot / atrial septal defect) and recovered well. Spring is a very quiet, very sweet little one who really needs a caring, loving family, who will provide her the therapy she requires. Spring has the typical delays seen in little ones with Down syndrome, and being confined to her stroller/walker is not helping her. Spring’s left ear folds down a bit, but there is no known hearing issue involved. They have noted in her file that Spring’s favorite activity is “being held” (how sweet is that!?). This little one is ready for a family.

Vienna is very alert, friendly, smiley, and happy.  She makes good eye contact and is starting to speak/babble words.  Currently undergoing treatment, with a favorable diagnosis.  She enjoys when others give her cubes to play with.  She is highly recommended for adoption, and will do well in a family of her own.   The officials prefer a married couple for Vienna, with one parent who is home full-time.  They request families who have experience with special needs and the time to put into all of Vienna’s necessary surgeries.   Many corrective surgeries will be necessary ongoing.  Surgery to separate her fingers will be helpful.
