Alex

AlexBoy, born December 1999

Moderate mental retardation, nonverbal, congenital malformation cleft of hard and soft palate, cleft lip (operation in February 2007).

ALEX will age out in DECEMBER 2015!!

This boy deserves the love of a family. We just can’t watch him age out! Everyone who knows him agrees he would make a FABULOUS son. He is such a helper! Last summer, when the weather was nice, we would take the smaller boys outside and some of the big boys who have more freedom would join us. Alex was always in that group. He would run to help us push wheelchairs, or gently take our blind boys by the hand. Every week when bananas are being served he is sure to be seen helping the less capable boys with their bananas, making sure no one steals from anyone else. PRECIOUS. Please someone see Alex. He is amazing.

Stephan

Stephanboy, born 2002

Central nervous system lesions, spastic tetraparesis, severe mental retardation, Vitreous Fibrosis, Horizontal Nystagmus, overbite.

Stephen is such a treasure. We want a family for him so desperately. He is about the size of a 6 or 7 year old- just an itty bitty thing. The nannies say that he is blind, but we believe he can at least see shadows. He always wants to be near the window- especially on sunny days. There are two places you can usually find Stephen- either standing under the window at the end of the hall, or sitting on a chair in the kitchen, waiting for the next meal.

Stephen is extremely sensory-seeking and needs to feel the world around him. He loves to spin, flap his arms, spin some more, run, spin, you get the idea. He has absolutely no sensory input at the institution- so he has to create it himself.

He does not speak and displays many institutional behaviors. He is NOT harmful or aggressive to himself or others. He is absolutely adorable and has so.much.potential. He is more than a diagnosis.

Jonathan

Jonathanboy, born 2002

Moderate mental retardation, cerebral dysfunction of movement, functional cardiomyopathy CH-0.

Jonathan is kind to the other boys and cheerful. He smiles so easily! He is nonverbal at this time. I heard from one volunteer that he always helps the nannies clear the table after meals. The only issues that is easily noticed regarding his “dysfunction of movement” is that he walks on the tips of his toes and kind of lumbers along that way. He is curious and loves to be outside.

Ella #

ella7 ella 01Ella, is a precious 7 year old who desperately needs a family. Ella has poly-malformative syndrome; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis to severe degree; Symptomatic epilepsy; Pseudo-bulbar paresis; Impossible gait; Cleft lip and cleft palate; Congenital cardiac malformation – intervalvular defect, hemodynamically insignificant; Delay in the neuro-psychical development.

Ella doesn’t walk, doesn’t talk, and eats through a tube. The correction of the cleft lip and palate is not finished. When talked to, she turns her head to the direction of the sound. She is put in a special verticalizer for longer periods of time. She holds up a toy put in her hand and manipulates with it for a short time. She reaches out to a hanging toy if it has attracted her interest; she pats it and shakes it. Ella pronounces quiet vowels sometimes to express positive emotions. She demonstrates emotional reactions with non-verbal means. She follows the movements of the adult with a look and by turning her head and makes long eye contact. She smiles when talked to and to tactile stimulation on her hands and cheeks, but only to some adults.

More photos of sweet Ella available.

Down syndrome

Kaitlyn is a precious little girl who recently turned 2 years old. She has Down syndrome, with the expected developmental delays. She has no known heart issues. Kaitlyn is a very sweet and loving little one, who does not take toys from other children. She likes to be hugged, and really likes her bath time!

The agency hopes to place Kaitlyn and Katrina with the same family. They were born on the same day, both have Down syndrome, and there is a possibility they may be twins. If so, we do not want to separate these two sweet girls! What fun times are ahead for the family who brings these two little ones home to be their daughters!

Anna Michelle

Anna MichelleGirl, born August 2001
PRC
post op CHD, blind

Anna Michelle ages out at the beginning of August!

Her file is outdated (2009) From her file at the age of 7: Although Anna Michelle can’t see the world she is intelligent and never cries, always waits until the aunts finish work and then play games with her. She can master quickly all the knowledge she has learned. She likes singing and can sing well. Due to the problems of her eyes, it influences her living to some extent, but she can take care of herself, eat alone, put on and off clothes, wash up and clean bedclothes. The aunts always praise Anna Michelle is an intelligent child.

 

From one of her classmates (and his family) who is now home in the US:

Anna Michelle attends a prestigious School For the Blind where she is an excellent student in grade 5 and earns high grades She is skilled in her native Braille language. She can speak some English and braille English as well (literary uncontracted braille). She enjoys reading and History is her favorite subject. She also plays the Liu Qin which is a 4 string Mandolin. Anna Michelle is in chorus and still LOVES to sing- with the voice of an angel! She loves to play with the other kids on the playground and is independent in regards to self care for hygiene, meals, dressing, etc. Anna Michelle also has excellent O&M skills and uses a white cane to get around independently. She is kind and thinks of her friends, remembering birthdays and doing sweet things for them.

Isadora #36

Isadora (1)

Isadora (2)Girl, born 2007
Glioependymal cyst of the right brain hemisphere – condition after surgery (Craniotomia regio frontalis – cystoventriculostomia); Spastic quadric paresis; Delay in the speech and motor development.

Isadora is in good overall condition with brain cyst and paretic syndrome, with good physical development. The internal organs are without pathological deviations. The child is with delay in the speech and motor activity, but within the limits of the main disease, big motor and speech improved is being registered. She says words, she knows the names of the children in the sector, carries out instructions, recognizes the toys, moves around by crawling and on all four while helping with her paretic hand, sits up on her own and follows the instructions of the physical therapist. She pulls up to a standing position with adult’s help or by unmoving support: she makes steps with the help of a gait trainer or holding on to both hands. She walks alongside unmoving support independently. She needs two aids. She plays with toys, doesn’t release them and fights for them. She eats independently. She goes to Montessori therapy and is in Kindergarten at the local special education school.
The child throws and catches a ball. She builds a tower of 10 blocks, builds with blocks (towers imitating houses, fences, etc.), she fits in mosaics; she takes out and fits in elements in the Seguin Board, puts together two pairs of pictures from “Lotto” game, fits in and strings, puts complicated forms in the bedding but has difficulties with the spastic hand. It prevents her from improving her motor skills. She brushes her teeth with help.

She eats on her own table food. She drinks from a cup. She puts the bib on her own, puts away and puts in order the utensils.  She likes to be the center of the attention. She observes the play of the other children and laughs loud, teases and plays with her peers, enters into interactions with them showing selective attitude; she sooths the children if they cry but manages to take away from them the toys that she prefers. She insists on participating in the joint activities. She demonstrates observed actions with objects.

Isadora likes very much to interact with adults and always tries to attract their attention. She has a developed bond with a member of the staff. She likes to listen to music, shows with gestures and hums to children’s songs. She speaks with simple sentences but her articulation is disturbed due to the main disease.

 Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.

Curtis

Curtis2 CurtisBoy, born March 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, post-op congenital heart disease

 

What a little love muffin Curtis is! Curtis is diagnosed as having down syndrome and is post-op CHD-TOF (elsewhere in his file it mentions an ultrasound reported PFO, ASD, and PDA).

Curtis3

Curtis has typical delays for a child with down syndrome. He could distinguish the difference between strangers and those close to him at the age of 6 months. At 9 months he was rolling over and could clap his hands and use his hands to get his favorite toys. Shortly after he was crawling and able to recognize his name and respond when called. He has been beginning to learn some simple words and trying to pronounce them. Curtis is gentle and cute. He likes to snuggle and receive hugs from his caretakers. He likes when others play with him and when he is happy he will shake hands with other children and kick his feet happily. Curtis gets along well with the other children and is good about sharing his toys. Could you be the lucky family that gets to snuggle with this little teddy bear? Please help us find a family for Curtis now so he can get home while he is still so young!

Calli #

calliGirl, born 2012
Congenital anomalies syndrome affecting mainly the facial area, blind

Calli is trying to take a sitting position independently. She remains standing with an adult’s help but would not stand for a long time.  She would hold a toy that has been handed to her by an adult. She examines objects by touching them with her fingers and palms.

Calli vocalizes and laughs aloud. She produces syllables by imitation. She feels comfortable both in children’s and adults’ company.

Calli is fed with a spoon by an adult. She drinks from a cup with an adult’s help. She needs constant supervision and assistance due to her blindness.

If the child is raised in a stimulating family environment, this would give her the opportunity to develop further her potential for psychological and physical development.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.

Linus collageBoy, born November 2007

deformity of finger; older child abandonment

Seven year old Linus is such a cute little guy! Besides a deformed middle finger on his left hand, Linus is a healthy little boy! From agency staff met Linus on March 25, 2015: Linus is a VERY SWEET, kind, calm, and easy-going boy. He has good friends and the orphanage staff love him. He hangs out in their office with them often after school. He has a deformed middle finger on his left hand which doesn’t appear to hinder him in daily living skills. However, he does not like school mainly because he says he is bullied at school for being an orphan.

He was brought into the orphanage in May 2014. He was very sad at first, but they say he is ok now. He has never talked about his abandonment or birth family. He was never educated prior to coming into the orphanage. the agency feels that Linus will need a very patient family who home schools so he can catch up, or a family who lives near a school district with a lot of educational supports. This child is so incredibly sweet and the staff thinks he will do really well in a family!

Delia

Delia post-op (2)

post-op

DeliaGirl, born July 2011
PRC
Post op congenital heart defect; Post op cleft lip/cleft palate; microphthalmia of left eye

Delia is a quiet, timid girl, who so needs a family to bring her out of her shell! When agency staff visited her orphanage last year, she quickly became engaged in the toys they brought out, stacking blocks into a very tall tower and giggling when it toppled over! Her motor skills are normal, she is able to walk well on her own, run, jump, and go up and down stairs while holding the railing, even though sometimes she’s afraid of heights. Her language is delayed as it’s difficult for her to speak clearly due to an unrepaired cleft lip and palate, but she understands caregivers instructions, and is able to express her needs. She can feed herself and put on her own shoes, but needs help getting dressed. An introverted little girl, she can be shy sometimes, but is very close with her caregivers and likes to be held. She gets along well with other children, but is also able to play independently. When she sees other children are crying she’ll go over and pat them gently to comfort them, and helps the caregivers with chores like picking up garbage. Her favorite toys are stuffed animals, and she especially enjoys playing outdoors and dancing to music. She had a surgery for her heart condition in October 2012; she recovered well from surgery and rarely gets sick. One of her eyes is smaller and has poor vision, but the vision in her other eye is normal.

Delia was just part of a Cleft repair program and just had her cleft surgery in April of 2015.

Evita

Evita (2)Girl, born August 2013
PRC
limb difference, sinus tract in lumbosacral region, developmental delay

Precious 1.5 year old Evita is diagnosed with deformed limbs, sinus tract in lumbosacral region, developmental delay. At the age of 7-9 months, Evita could roll over and began to pay attention to the environment around her. Between 10 and 12 months, she could sit alone and crawl. She also learned how to cruise furniture around this time as well. Her motion development is limited due to her limb deformity. She was smiling at 2 months and using her eyes to seek the source of a sound and to follow moving objects at 3-4 months of age.

language and motor delays

Jennifer, born in April of 2008, is a sweet girl who loves to dress up; when her foster father brought her to the orphanage she was wearing a jacket with flowers on it, and looked like a little princess! He said she often secretly admires herself in the mirror. She loved posing for the camera and didn’t need any instruction – she knew exactly what to do! Her foster family reports that she can make sounds while lying down, but cannot once she is standing, as if something is blocking her throat. Jennifer has a good appetite and isn’t a picky eater, though she especially likes candy! She is diagnosed with delays in motor skills and language, but her latest developmental information is outdated; as of two years ago she could walk, but not run or jump with both feet. She was only calling out simple words, but had good understanding. She plays well with other children and never fights. She especially enjoys music, and whenever she hears a song she sways to the rhythm.

Left peripheral facial paralysis, bilateral hearing disorder, post-op Congenital heart defect

 

Ramona, born April 2011, is an active little girl who loves to play with other children. She has significant hearing loss in both ears and doesn’t speak, but expresses herself with sounds when she’s happy or when she can’t solve a problem. Caregivers report she’s very clever, and understands directions with motions. When looking at a picture book, she’ll point at a picture of a girl, then at herself, and also imitates the facial expressions and actions of children in the pictures. At two years her motor skills were a bit behind, but after several months of training she caught up to the other kids her age and no longer needs therapy. As of a year ago, Ramona could walk on her own, climb stairs holding a railing, stand on one foot for several seconds, and kick a ball. Her fine motor skills are also good; she could eat with a spoon, build a tower of eight blocks, turn pages in a book, and scribble with a pen. When Ramona came to the orphanage at eight months old, she had a scar from heart surgery, and an ultrasound shows no further abnormality. The left side of her face was paralyzed when she was admitted, so the cause is unknown.

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

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.

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 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 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.

Congenital Heart Defect

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.

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

Matilda is a smart, confident girl, who greatly impressed our staff on a recent trip when she recited a long poem by memory! She answered questions easily, and performed a song as well. Caregivers report she is developmentally on target. She attends a local school for children who are blind, and has learned many English words there. 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!
