Marin (3)Boy, born 2005

moderate mental retardation and hyperkinetic disorder; good physical health

His report says Marin is generally happy, but can be aggressive if he feels angry, and he doesn’t seem to have a lot of self control. He cannot read and has some difficulty speaking. Marin adapts easily to a new environment and his classmates enjoy him. Our report also says he interacts easily with adults, even to the point of annoyance! Marin is very sociable but does not always respect authority or follow the rules.

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.

40626124650 Philip (2)30920114058 Kelvin

Boy, born January 2007
Down syndrome

Handsome Kelvin is 8 years old, and waiting for his family!

40626124650 Philip (1)

From a family who met him in June 2014:

This calm little guy came up to me with pleading eyes for attention and is just so polite. God has heard his prayers, and now he is listed for adoption! He is not overbearing or competitive at all. Rather, he is observant and inquisitive. He is about the size of a six year-old and just so gentle. I would take him home in a heartbeat if he was available before. He takes turns riding the red wagon around the orphanage grounds as the bigger boys pull him, and he gestures politely for fresh fruit when he sees it is available. He is kind to other children. He says a few words in his native language, and listened carefully when I was giving descriptions of my family photos. I have confidence that he would do wonderfully in any kind of family, and it is obvious– he can surely reciprocate love! He enjoyed throwing balls, going on walks, playing see-saw, and listening to English descriptions. Whoever adopts this little love will be so blessed to call him a beloved son.

Jimmy has progressed enough in his studies to be able to attend the School of the Blind. He has already been studying at this school for 2 years.

When asked he said that he loves to draw for fun and his favorite food is noodles. For his favorite studies in school he likes anything that has to do with calculators and math. His favorite song is Edelweiss from the Sound of music.

From a family that met him 12/15:
Joey is a tiny, smiley little guy who loves attention and hugs! He was so happy to sit on my lap for a hug, to show me the little stuffed animal and toys he was holding and to have his picture taken! He is verbal and said things like, “Cheese!” when having his picture taken, and “Can I see?” to see the photo stored in the camera. He will make a sweet addition to any family and he will simply thrive with the love of a Mama and Papa poured into him! He is in the same place as Chester and Byron – the last three orphans left in their institution.

AnnabelleGirl, age 7
P-OD
Fetal alcohol syndrome, behavioral disorder, PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale), emotional neglect, history of abuse

Annabelle is in the foster family since 2013. This is a very energetic girl. She likes art works, mapping of bands, puzzles.

Annabelle was a witness of a violent crime.  Annabelle has been emotionally neglected, she has been abused. In February 2014 she was in the psychiatric hospital (2 months). She was aggressive to herself and to others.She has been treated pharmacologically.  The agency has some additional details.

She is not open for other children. She prefers contact with adults. She smiles very seldom. She is very willing to learn rhymes and songs. She is very caring of the son of the foster family – they are in this same age. But she is not involved with her younger brother. This is a reason that the kids can be adopted separately.

It is the psychological opinion that Annabelle is very easy getting contact with adults but this contact is superficial. She can be charming but she has problem with maintaining of relationships. This is because in her home she was neglected. She hasn’t had love, care and safety, she hasn’t had regular physiological functions and regular satiety. Annabelle has disorders of the emotional sphere. It is recommended for Annabelle to be adopted to the family with children older then her.

Victoria CollageGirl, born December 2002
PRC
Severe scoiosis, listed as CP but family should be open to other possibilities

Beautiful Victoria recently turned 13 years old. She’s SO special. Victoria is warmhearted and she has a gift for painting and drawing. She attends school in the orphanage and her favorite subject is painting. The staff told us that she can read and write well and that her mental abilities are totally normal. Victoria is a vegetarian and her favorite food is a tomato. She can eat independently and uses a spoon. Her favorite toys are Barbies and her best friend is a sweet girl who sleeps next to her. She loves the color pink and her favorite animal is a cat. She loves to sing, color, and draw and hopes one day to be a painter/artist. She is left handed. Victoria also loves to recite poems and tell stories. All of the other children in the orphanage love to listen to her stories!

Victoria understood what it meant to be adopted and when agency staff asked her if she wanted to be adopted, she got a big smile on her beautiful face. She is a very smart girl who came into care at the approximate age of two. She has lived in the orphanage ever since. The staff described her as quiet, shy, obedient, kind, creative, friendly, and smiley. She has good manners and is very polite. It was more than clear to us that she is a very special little girl with a bright smile and a light in her eyes!

As for her special needs, her file lists post-op cerebral palsy. The orphanage stated that when she was little she could move a lot, but now she doesn’t like to because her arms are not strong enough. She does have feeling in her legs and can move them. She can also sit up on her bed, with support. It seemed to our untrained eye that she had severe scoliosis and will need some extensive surgeries and that it very well could be a matter of life and death for her. It also appeared that she had unrepaired club feet and she also had a scar on her back- possibly spina bifida. She is toilet trained and can tell the nanny when she has to go to the bathroom, but she does need some help. If she doesn’t go to the bathroom quickly, she will have to go to the hospital and get a catheter. Her and her caretakers now know that when she feels the need to go, she needs to go right away. Victoria’s hearing and vision are normal and she is receiving therapy and special exercise 3-4 times a day. Her nanny loves her very much and it was clear she did everything she could to take care of her the best she could, but it is not enough. They said she was unable to have surgery in country.

Victoria will need a family to move forward and be in China for her before her 14th birthday, in December 2016.

Elijah (4) Elijah (3)Boy, born June 2003
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Elijah was found abandoned at the orphanage gate at five years old. On admission to the institute it was found that he suffered from cerebral palsy, was tested to have normal intelligence and was found to have weakened lower limbs. Although he tried, he could not walk, and he was given a wheelchair. He showed his strong will, and integrated into the group life in the institute. At the age of 7 years, he liked to play games with peers and share the toys with other children. He is polite to others, and always smiles at strangers who visit the orphanage.

He has received physical therapy at the institute, and after great diligence and perseverance on Elijah’s part, he can now walk slowly while holding onto handrails. In the institute, he is an obedient and sensible boy, and he is adored by the caretakers and medical staffs. The nannies and orphanage directors hope a family will chose him as he will make a wonderful addition to any family.

Kipper (2)

Kipper (1)Girl, born October 2006
PRC
Hearing Impaired

Kipper is a handsome and outgoing boy who is 9 years old. (Note: his photos from his file have spots on them…these are not skin blemishes) He came to the orphanage when he was about 3 months old. They discovered he had hearing loss, with no other developmental issues. Kipper began “language recovery training” when he was 4 years old. At that time, his left ear was at 90dB, with his right ear having more hearing ability at 75dB. Kip had no language at 4 years old. He attended the language center during the week, then returned to the orphanage each weekend. He received hearing aids in 2010, and was soon able to repeat words and phrases. He is now able to speak in full sentences. Sometimes Kipper’s speech can be hard to understand, but for the most part, he can communicate with others with no problem. Kipper is a very smart boy, who quickly learns new skills. He has a fantastic memory, and can quickly recall passwords he has only seen one time. Kipper is a very compassionate boy, who looks out for the other kids. One friend at the orphanage is blind. He and Kipper are good friends, and he is able to understand what Kipper says every time. He refers to Kipper as his eyes, since Kipper helps him so much. Kipper is a sweet, active, energetic, and loving boy who wants to have a family of his own. He is inquisitive, polite, and eager to learn. He will be such a great addition to a loving family!

Gabriella (1)

SMALLGirl, born February 2014
PRC
osteo-genesis imperfecta (OI)

Gabriella might have fragile bones but she has a mighty heart! She is currently living in a foster care center that focuses on caring for children with bone conditions. She is not currently getting pamidronate or any IV treatment for her condition as it is a difficult procedure in her home country. She has started to sit up on her own. It was scary for her but she kept on trying and is now a sitting expert and loves to be able to sit on her own. She is learning to feed herself and is also an expert at making a big mess when she does! But she is very happy to be learning more independence. She is described as being curious and social. Gabriella hasn’t had a bone fracture since the beginning of 2015. Gabriella will likely benefit immensely from having an IV treatment of bisphosphonates, such as pamidronate, every 3-6 months.

lazarus2lazarusBoy, born 2000
Down syndrome

He needs out NOW!! Please let’s find him a family!!

A Family must file the I600a before July 2016!

From a family that met him 3/14:
I love him. Quite simply, I really truly love him, and I hope someone goes and gets him immediately! If you could meet him, you would never want to let him go!!! He was in the bed next to another child I was talking to, and he fluttered his hand to me, and then grinned the cutest, most precious little smile I’ve ever seen! I turned and spoke to him and he turned on the full charm- he is very good at eye contact and a total flirt! His facial expressions are hilarious- and although I didn’t hear him speak, he is VERY good at communicating his needs/wants! He has so much personality. He pushed his covers off, and I noticed his tights had slid down almost to his knees, but before I could fix them, he gave me a sheepish grin and tried to reach for them, to cover himself up. I pulled them up for him, and he grinned a huge thank you, but then started wiggling his foot and pointing to it and frowning and sighing. The nanny came to adjust it, and they shared that he likes his tights fixed “just so” lol. The staff is quite worried about him, his belly is very distended and although he eats very much and well, he is not growing. (They pulled his shirt up to show me their concerns and he politely pulled it back down lol). His legs are very thin, but this is a great orphanage and they definitely feed the kids very well, so I would guess he has some type of digestive issues, maybe Celiac that keeps him from absorbing the nutrients very well and could cause that type of bloating in the abdomen. He can pull to sitting and stand and tried to take steps even, and is quite eager to do so- but his stomach weighs him down and his legs are just very thin to bear his weight very long. This sweet, wonderful, charming little guy needs a family FAST to get his medical needs straightened out so he can enjoy his life. He has the most adorable little face and his smile will steal your heart. He has so much eagerness for life, and his receptive language seemed to be good, but I hate seeing him without the medical care that is so easily available in the USA. Definitely one of my favorite kids ever- he totally stole my heart!

PRC
deformed fingers

Wade is only 15 months old. Although dressed in pink in this photo, he is all boy. He was abandoned at the orphanage gate when he was 2 days old and has been living in the orphanage ever since. Wade was born with deformed fingers on both hands and an additional minor special need. He can use his thumbs and index fingers deftly, can hold beans and toys, turn pages of a book and pick up beans. He has started to use the potty.

When his report was prepared in October, Wade was standing independently while holding onto a toy or other object. Now he is walking with support (holding someone’s hand or holding onto something). He’s not saying many words yet but he understands what’s said to him and is reported to have normal intelligence. He likes to listen to music, play with toy cars and is known to laugh out loud.

Can you be the family that Wade’s been waiting for?

Cleft lip and palate; congenital heart defect (post-op)

Grace is 5 ½ years old. She was abandoned by the train station when she was ten days old and has been living in an orphanage ever since. Grace was born with a cleft lip and palate, for which her first surgery will occur in May. She also had a congenital heart defect which was corrected this past summer. She does not take any cardiac medication but she sometimes pants and her lips become blue after strenuous exercise so her cardiac issues may not be fully resolved.

Grace is reported to have normal intelligence, bowel and bladder control, and she walks and runs just fine. She dresses herself, speaks in 3 – 5 word sentences, likes to sing and play games with other children.

Grace needs a family of her own. Can she join yours?

Ginny RKGirl, born 2012
PRC
Congenital heart defect

Ginny is all girl, although it’s hard to tell with her short haircut and attire. She recently turned 3. She was found abandoned outside the orphanage at 7 months of age. She had surgery in August, 2015 to correct two heart defects, Tetrology of Fallot and Patent Foramen Ovale. A US cardiologist who reviewed her file indicates that a primary repair done correctly leads to a generally good prognosis. Ginny does not take any cardiac medication and her activities are not restricted, so it seems that she’s doing quite well now.

Ginny has good bowel and bladder control during the day but is still in diapers at night. She has well developed fine and gross motor skills. She walks and runs well. She has good self-care skills: she can dress and undress herself, knows what to do when she feels cold or tired, and expresses herself well. Ginny likes to watch TV and listen to music. She is reported to have typical intelligence.

Is Ginny the daughter you’ve been searching for?

Liam (2)Boy, born 2004
PRC
Hemophilia

Liam has already been waiting far too long, with the painful bleeds of hemophilia and little medical intervention. He is considered to be a really lovely boy, who loves to play with other children. Liam has hemophilia. If he bleeds it is sometimes hard to get it to stop. He is aware of it, but it doesn’t slow him down. He is a wild and active boy but knows to be careful.

 

Here is what the volunteers at the Bring Me Hope Camp from this summer said about him.

Liam is very outgoing, friendly, and a fun loving kid. He really enjoys outdoor activities such as badminton, frisbee, and basketball. With that being said, I don’t think there is an activity that he does not like. While at camp, he did not complain about an activity once and he clearly had a lot of fun doing whatever was put in front of him. To sum up his interests, Liam loves doing anything that involves other people and some physical activity.

Picking a favorite moment with Liam is impossible. The thing that I will always remember is seeing how much fun he had dancing every night with the kids and volunteers at camp. Another memory that I will treasure is getting to bond with him over card games. He is a quick learner when it comes to the game of speed. I will never forget the time when I taught him how to play speed without being able to speak the same language with him.

I think Liam’s biggest need in life is something that is needed by all children: love. With that being said, love is not absent in his life because he continually shows love towards the people around him. He loves life and has a way of showing that contagiously for others. Liam is an all around great kid who would thrive in a family that supports and loves in a way that he has not yet experienced.
