Linus

Linus collageBoy, born November 2007
PRC
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 (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. She started making sounds like bababa between 5-7 months and responded when called between 8 and 10 months. At one she would make good eye contact with toys, her caregivers, and visitors. She can now copy adults to do things such as waving goodbye. Evita had a right clubbed foot repaired in May 2014. Evita very much enjoys playing with other children and playing with age-appropriate toys. Evita is a beautiful little girl who desperately needs to know the love a forever family! Could your family be the family Evita has been waiting for?

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.

She had not been trained to feed herself, but they were working on toilet training at that time. Emerlyse’s earlier photos show a bubbly, happy, and engaging little one. Her more recent photos show a different little girl…quiet, reserved, and a bit sad. Hopefully, they caught her on a bad day, but she most definitely needs attention and love. Emerlyse needs a family who will work with her, love her, and treasure her. And she needs them soon. We would love to see her smile again!

Hallie Anne

Hallie AnneGirl, born March 2011
PRC
club feet, dislocated hip, some delays

Hallie Anne is a precious little girl who recently turned 4 years old. She has club feet, which are being treated with corrective shoes. Hallie Anne also had a diagnosis of dislocated hip, and a heart murmur was detected with no intervention mentioned in her report. There is the often-used diagnosis of “brain paralysis” in her file. Hallie Anne lives with a foster family, and, considering her hip and feet issues, was developing well as of the file date (late 2013) She was walking with one hand held, loved to play hide and seek, and if she was thirsty, would locate her water bottle. Hallie Anne loves to play with other children, and warms up to strangers after a short while. Hallie Anne will certainly benefit from some physical therapy, and the love of her own family!

In December of 2013, he was put in a foster family. He sleeps well, though he likes having his older foster brother near him when he is sleeping. If he loses sight of his foster mother, he will cry. Flint can call mama, baba, nainai, yeye, gege etc. He can understand all words that adults say to him. When his foster father returns home from work, he will go to the door to welcome him back and will ask to cuddle with him. When his foster father cuddles and teases him, he will laugh out loud. Flint has a good appetite. His foster mother helps feed him. His older foster brother has cerebral palsy and cannot reach out his hands to get a snack on the table. Flint will get the snack for him and put the food into his mouth. Sometimes his brother accidentally bites his finger when he gets the food in his mouth and then he will cry. It seems Flint would do very well with older siblings!

Diagnosis: Atresia of the esophagus – not corrected

Zayne has been through several surgeries in his young life. He was born with VACTER-association. He has had 2 successful cardiac surgeries with a follow-up appointment scheduled in May 2015. He also had two surgeries for reconstruction of the digestive system with output of esophageal stoma and gastric stoma, ligation of two tracheoesophageal fistulas, and pyloroduodenal plastic. He needs surgery to reconstruct his esophagus. Doctors believe that this is best done in the US. He’s currently being fed through a G-tube and his medical needs are well monitored.

Despite all the medical procedures in his young life, Zayne is a happy and interactive little boy. He is well loved by his caregivers, who believe that his delays are due to the amount of time he’s been hospitalized. He rolls over, sits with assistance and is starting to learn to crawl. He moves around in a walker He plays with toys, interacts with caregivers, smiles and vocalizes when spoken to, and enjoys playing peek-a-boo.

Members of the agency staff have met Zayne and have an understanding of his medical needs. Additional information, along with photos and videos will be available in May 2015.

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.

Artemis

ArtemisBoy, 2.5 years old

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.

Sweet Jubilee is doing well. She has cerebral palsy and is on medication to control her seizures.

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.

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.

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.

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

TheresaGirl, born March 2012
PRC
Cerebral palsy

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.

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

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.

Percy

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

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.

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.

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!

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)

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!
