When he is affected by his hemophilia, he will need the support of adults. Even when his sickness often brings about pain and tears, he still loves life. Freddie is a compassionate person and he is an energetic and positive child. His ability to care for himself is strong. His hygiene is very good. After he gets up in the morning, he will make his bed on his own. He can brush his teeth, wash his face and eat on his own.

Brandi

BrandiGuardian AngelGirl, Born August 2007
brain malformations, bilateral hearing loss,significant cognitive delays, heart condition strabismus, anemia

Brandi is a beautiful 7 year old girl. She is listed with bilateral hearing loss, but can definitely hear, as she will turn around and look for the person calling her name, and does respond to commands given if she chooses (if she doesn’t, she screams/attempts to run/swats at the caregiver). Cognitively, she is very delayed, more like a toddler, in ability to understand what’s going on around her, and in her responses, and appropriateness. She also has strabismus in both eyes, and has both a heart condition and anemia. She does NOT have CP, nor microcephaly. She does have brain malformations, significant developmental delays, and many stimming behaviors that are typical of lower functioning autism. She is completely nonverbal.

Families interested in Brandi should be aware that she appears to have autism, and that it impacts her significantly. She is a “runner” and will bolt and run unless contained or restrained and potential families need to be aware that this is common in autism, and that they will need to take appropriate measures to keep her safe in a home and family. She has a history of aggression when changes occur, such as a move, or unexpected event, which include biting peers and adults, and she struggled for at least a year after her last orphanage change four years ago, but is doing better now. However, as many with autism thrive on routine and predictability, families need to be aware that she may handle a transition poorly, especially at first. She has excellent mobility, and is very typically sized for a normal 7 year old in weight and height, and when she resists, it is challenging for a grown woman to hold her back. She has been in a school for the deaf, however, she knows no sign language nor does she read lips. She is very much in her own world in many ways. She enjoys music and will sometimes clap, but remains disconnected from the group and does not interact with adults (was not seen with peers).

Brandi attempts to smell/lick everything that is handed to her and when she realizes it isn’t food, she is not typically interested. The nannies report that she has an excellent appetite, and that she enjoys eating. She stims by rocking, throwing herself back and forth, sucking all four fingers on her hand, grunting, and moaning/shrieking. She walks with a lurching gallop. She flaps her hands often. A potential family should be aware that she has no awareness of danger, no fear of strangers and is very much like a very young child emotionally and cognitively, but physically is strong and very mobile. She currently takes psychiatric medications to assist in sleep and behavior.

She is a lovely little girl, with beautiful blond hair and clear complexion. She is in a good orphanage where she is well cared for. Families need to research autism, and be comfortable and familiar with caring safely for a child with the issues mentioned above, in order to provide Brandi with a safe, loving home.

motor delays

Addisyn is an adorable little girl who came into care when she was 2 years old, and was found to be thin, with little strength in her hands and feet. With the care of her nannies, she gained some weight, and soon was in good health. They noticed she was able to stand and walk a bit with assistance, but not on her own. A CT of her brain showed no abnormalities. As of her report (in October 2013), she was still walking only with assistance. They assumed at that time that her intelligence was not equal to her peers. In an update from 2/2015 Addisyn is not talking and still unable to walk unassisted. They estimate her physical and cognitive development at about the level of a 15 month old child. Addie is a sweet and loving little girl, who always wants to join in with the other kids in play. The agency has several photos and video of this precious girl.

Chelsia

ChelsiaGirl, born January 2002
PRC
Delayed Development

Chelsia ages out in January 2016 – she needs a family to be in country to adopt her, prior to her birthday!

Beautiful Chelsia recently turned 13. Normally that would be very exciting, but for Chelsia it means she now has less than a year for her family to find her and for them to be in her country. Chelsia must be adopted before her 14th birthday or she will age out and likely face a life in an institution. Chelsia is diagnosed with delayed development. Chelsia is shy at first, but she likes communicating with people once she is familiar with them. She enjoys reading books and watching tv. Chelsia’s teachers say she is not good at math, but it does not seem to affect her socially. She is energetic and is often found with a smile on her face! Chelsia enjoys playing with toys, but she enjoys puzzles and drawing the most. She can express her will and she is very polite. She is independent with taking care of her own needs and will help adults when she is able. Chelsia has a good appetite. Her favorite foods are dumplings, vegetables, fruits, sweets, and snacks.

Charles

Charles (2)Boy, born June 2002
PRC
Congenital ichthyosis

12.5 year old Charles has waited far too long for a family of his own and the number one reason he has likely waited as long as he has is because he was born a boy. Charles is diagnosed with a mild form of congenital ichthyosis, a skin condition that can be easily managed. Charles will be celebrating his 13th birthday in June and then will only have one year left to find a family or he will age out at 14. There is no reason this child should age out. His needs are manageable and he deserves to be loved by a forever family of his own!Charles (1)

Charles’ file is very outdated. Charles is described as active and smart. He is independent with is personal care and he is good at answering questions. He enjoys singing and can also recite rhymes. Charles gets along well with the nannies, teachers, and other kids. He is able to express his needs and talks clearly and politely. Charles has good manners and is positive when greeting his teachers and friends. He loves to help the teachers sweep and mop the floor, wipe the desks, etc. Charles likes playing on the sliding board, swings, and trampolines. He is also fond of watching tv, taking pictures, and looking at pictures. Maybe Charles could be a photographer in the future, but first we need to find Charles a forever family!

Nissa is 5 years old and has Down Syndrome but just doesn’t let that extra chromosome stop her. Nissa can stand, walk and climb up and down stairs alone. She can understand and follow your instructions. She dances with music and can sing along with you. Nissa plays well with other children and is not afraid of strangers.

Update 9/28/14: A family visited the orphanage 2 weeks ago and had this to say about Nissa. “She was clearly chattering away. I can’t actually vouch for what she was saying, but it appeared she was conversing with the staff. It was clear she was understanding them. They made a point to say that she wasn’t like the older DS boy we had just seen moments before. They said she was very, very smart. She’s a champion giggler and very much loved there.” Oh and it was mentioned that she really, really loves stickers.

Her agency has a $2000 grant available.  Video available.

Dara

Post-op cleft lip and palate

Adorable Dara is diagnosed with post-op cleft lip and palate. Based on her date of birth in the file, she is 8 years old, but in another place it mentions that she came into care as a baby and noted that she was was found in November 2008. It is important for a family to know that though the file says 2006, it is likely that she was born in 2008. It would also explain her size and why she is said to behind her peers. Dara lived in a foster family from Nov. 2008 until Feb. 2013. At that point she was moved to the orphanage. Dara is introverted and kind. She likes dancing and singing! She is observant and can help to take care of the younger children. Dara likes being praised and seldom fights with others in group activity. She is very obedient.

From Dara’s file: Dara has normal language expression and organization ability. She could not produce some words clearly after her cleft lip and palate surgery, but normal communication was not affected. She has basic self-managing ability, but still needs reminders from her caretakers for some things. She follows orders well. Dara is delayed when compared with children of her age. She is slower with recognition and understanding. She is learning counting, reading numbers, and writing.

Cerebral palsy

Lanikai is a lovely little girl who is 6 years old! She arrived at the orphanage when she was almost 3 years old, and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and mild strabismus (crossed eyes). Lanikai is a sweet little girl, who so desperately wants to walk without help. She practices every day, and will sometimes cry in frustration when her efforts are not enough. Lanikai can walk with a walker, but is unable to stand or walk unassisted. She can use the walker to go where she needs, and is able to handle her toileting needs alone. Lanikai would certainly benefit from physical therapy. Her speech skills are good, and her fine motor skills are also good. Lanikai often asks the nannies when her new Mommy is coming for her. They always give her the same answer…”Your Mom is waiting for you afar. You just need to recover well, and your parents will come and take you home soon”. Lanikai always gives a content smile at this answer, and the happiness and hope are apparent in her eyes. It’s time for Lanikai to come home!

Sasha is outgoing and adorable. According to her teacher, who proudly told us that she is one of the most able children in the class, and in her group, she has very good receptive language skills. She can speak simple words, and she uses gestures to communicate her needs. I note that she initiated shaking hands with me, making excellent eye contact. She was smiling, sweet and friendly…a very pleasant little girl. She loves to dance, and she has a very close friend in the orphanage, a boy named Codey, who is the same age, and who also has DS. They were observed together and there really seems to be a strong bond between them. It was very touching to see them together. Sasha has been a healthy girl. We are told that she has no heart condition, and has had no surgeries or hospitalizations. She attends the special kindergarten class and is making good progress. Sarah is a very lovely looking little girl, with a sweet expression and gentle manner. There are videos of Sasha.

Esme

EsmeGirl, born March 2009  (previously listed as Victoria)
CO-A

Esme’s diagnosis was previously reported as Down syndrome, but it appears that is incorrect according to her file.

The real diagnosis is Ritscher–Schinzel 3C syndrome. It is a rare condition, whose symptoms include heart defects, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism. The report also states that when she was 15 months old she had a surgery to correct a congenital heart defect (cardiopathy). In April 2013 she had a correction of her AV fistula in her right wrist. In July 2013 she had a correction of her blocked tear duct. She has been treated for asthma.

Sweet Esme is 5 years old; she loves to play with dolls. She is a sweet girl who is kind, affectionate, funny, and lovable. She has been living in a foster home since she was 2-months-old, and is very affectionate with her foster family. She loves playing with her foster siblings, and gets along very well with the children closest to her age. Her foster mother describes her as a happy, obedient, sociable child, and they enjoy having her in their home.

Because Esme has Syndrome 3C, a condition that is characterized by cardiac malformations, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism (3C’s), her development is not up to age level. She has been going to therapy to develop her speech skills. She also has Enuresis, which affects her bladder and urination control.

Esme interacts well with other children and loves to watch TV and play. She can eat, brush her teeth, and dress herself independently. She loves doing her homework and schoolwork, and can concentrate on a task or an activity. She is an extremely outgoing child, who is respectful and always follows directions.

Esme is looking for a forever family that will provide her with love and affection, kindness and guidance. She will bring lots of laughter, many smiles, and tons of hugs to your home!

Joshua #5-20

Joshua2

Joshua 2015Boy, age: 7
Moderate mental delay; significant disturbance in the behavior requiring care and treatment; slightly hyperkinetic behavior; strabismus (wears glasses)

Joshua spent the first 6 years of his life in an orphanage surrounded by children much younger than him. As a result, he was not held to age appropriate expectations. He has recently been moved to a group home with children in his age range and significant improvements in his development have already been observed.

While living in his previous environment, he was often bribed to get compliance. As a result, he learned that if he acted badly, someone would give him a “present” in order to get him to behave. This has resulted in him not understanding how to regulate his behavior and in him having negative behaviors simply for the sake of getting a “reward” in order to get him to act appropriately. He needs a family that is willing to provide a structured family environment with consistency in teaching him how to build his own personal boundaries, how to respect other people’s personal boundaries, how to appropriately regulate his emotions, and how to appropriately respond and handle his emotions.

The staff at the group home HAS seen progress in the short time that he has been in their facility. They are working with him on learning to take care of himself, follow the routines of the group home, and how to deal with his emotions when he is upset or frustrated. He is an active little boy who loves to play outside and listen to music. At this time, he prefers the attention of the adults over interacting with other children, but this is also a learned behavior that the staff is working to address.

Observations from someone who has met him:
Joshua does have behavior issues, and needs a family who can be FIRM and invest the time needed with him.  He should be the youngest child in a family, so he doesn’t inadvertently hurt younger children.  It is possible that he is on the Autism spectrum, but autism is not in his official file.  A family who met him is willing to talk to families who are seriously considering adopting Joshua.

Photos and videos from January 2015 are available through the agency.

Poor Marco never had his paperwork for adoption made ready until just this summer. Precious Marco is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and mild anemia. He gets around pretty well, he has determination, and he has a beautiful smile! CP is not degenerative and can improve with therapy. Marco is finally getting his chance!

At 6.5, Marco was receiving schooling in the special school of his orphanage. Under the patient direction of teachers, he can follow to count from 1-10, he knows in, out, left and right. His language development is fairly delayed and he cannot speak clearly. Marco can walk and he uses support to go up and downstairs. He can move his hands and feet slowly, but does not move too much. Now he can speak some simple poems, can sing some simple children’s songs, and knows some simple English words, but his intelligence development is delayed compared to his peers. Marco is cute and kind. He likes to play with other children and can get along well with other children. Marco likes listening to music and watching children’s programs. When he is happy, he will laugh sweetly. He is an adorable child and we all hope that he could have a happy and wonderful home soon!

Mild hearing Loss

Conner is a handsome boy who will be 5 years old in February. He came into care when he was about 1 year old, and was found to have mild hearing loss (30dB) Conner’s file was done when he was 2 years 7 months old. At that time, Conner’s motor skills were on target, and he was imitating words. Conner is active, engaging, and lovable. He enjoys listening to music, and can swing all by himself (at 2 years 7 months old). As often happens, a child with hearing loss can be misdiagnosed as having an intellectual delay. Conner’s medical reflects this misconception. Conner appears to be a typical little guy who happens to have some hearing loss. We do not know if this could be improved with treatment, or hearing aids (if necessary), but he will certainly not receive the help he needs until he comes home! Conner is ready for a family!

Post-op cleft lip and palate; unsteady gait

3 year old Jonie is diagnosed with post-op cleft lip and palate and an unsteady gait (she was not quite walking at the time her file was prepared). Jonie loves to be held and would talk non-stop whenever someone held her. In fact, if she wasn’t the first one held, she would cry loudly in her crib. Smart girl knew how to get someone’s attention! When learning how to stand, she would laugh happily. Her favorite thing to do is to play outside. Jonie loved watching the children swing and her eyes were full of curiosity. When in the playroom, she always looked for her favorite toys and would sometimes get upset when she didn’t get her favorite toy. A hug from the aunties cheered her up! In March 2013, she had her cleft lip and palate surgery. It took her a little time to warm back up once she came back from surgery, but it wasn’t long and she was walking around and talking a lot again. Jonie loves going on the swing- the higher she goes, the happier she will be, often not wanting to stop. Jonie is an active, clever, lively, and lovely child in need of a forever family!

He turns from back to stomach and vice versa; he turns in different directions when put on his back; he stands in a walker. He insistently gets to a toy that has attracted his attention. He prefers to play with hanging toys and rings that he studies with interest. With little help he can knock two blocks one against the other. He takes and holds in his hand a toy given to him but mainly shakes it. He is fed by an adult and drinks liquids given by an adult. He cheers to play of “peek-a-boo” and hiding. He doesn’t imitate sounds but pronounces accidental and long combinations of sounds.

Photos and videos from January 2015 along with a complete medical report are available through the agency.

Spencer is a sweet baby boy, who needs a family, and therapies to help him grow and develop.

Tyran’s fine motor skills are good, with the exception of transferring an object from one hand to another. He is a very bright little guy, whose receptive speech is very good. He was able at 17 months to say “nainai” (grandmother) but it was not very clear. Tyran lives with a foster grandmother who loves him, but he does not appear to have access to any needed therapies. Tyran needs a family not only to love him as he grows, but can provide the therapies he will need to reach his full potential.

Benedict

Benedict (1)Benedict (2)Boy, born April 2011
PRC
Muscular Dystrophy

Benedict is an incredibly cute little guy who is 3 years old. He came into care when he was about 1 year old and lives with a foster family. Benedict’s overall development has been very good. He has been healthy, is very active, and easy going. Benedict sometimes falls when he is running. That seems to be the only current visual sign of the muscular dystrophy with which he has been diagnosed. Symptoms usually begin to appear at around this age. Benedict is very social and likes group activities. If he is upset, or angry (not often), he is very easy to redirect. Benedict’s speech is very good; he speaks Mandarin as well as the local dialect. He attends classes at the orphanage, then returns to his foster home. Benedict is very helpful, and very charming…one day in class, he finished the assignment and handed it to his teacher. Before she could respond, Benedict smiled and said, “Good job!”. Benedict needs a family, and a thorough medical exam and tests, to determine the best course of action to help him remain as healthy as possible.

Porter

PorterBoy, born June 2007
PRC
Deafness

Porter is a delightful boy who is 7 years old. He came into care when he was a 4 year old, and they soon discovered Porter was deaf. In the 3 years he has been at the orphanage, he has become a favorite of many there. Porter is very bright, and has such an eagerness to learn! His motor skills are excellent. He lives in a group setting with a foster mom and dad, and a small group of children. If one of the children is learning to write, he grabs a paper and pen so he can learn, too. Porter has not received any training in sign language. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for him…so much to say, and so many things he wants to learn. We do not know if Porter’s hearing loss is permanent, or if the use of hearing aids would be beneficial to him. We do know he desperately wants to learn, and he needs to be able to communicate. Porter needs a family!

Aren

Aren (1)Aren (2)Boy, born January 2011
PRC
post-op meningomyelocele; post-op hydrocephalus

Meet handsome Aren! He is diagnosed as post-op meningomyelocele and post-op hydrocephalus. Aren has an outstanding personality, is very determined, and is all boy. He is clever and can understand adult’s facial expressions and tones and gives the corresponding response. Aren likes to play in the yard, touch the flowers and grass, pick berries, and watch birds and butterflies flying, the fish in the pond, and the dog in the doghouse.

In April 2011 Aren was sent for surgery for lumbosacral meningomyelocele. He healed well and was discharged. Rehabilitation helped with his recovery and mobility. In September 2013, Aren was sent to the hospital where he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. He received a shunt and now he is fine. In May of 2014, he was placed with a foster family. The foster parents love him very much and view him as a part of the family. Aren’s surgery caused his abnormal walking. As of September 2014, he could stand up and walk with his hands holding onto something for support, climb, crawl fast, and could go upstairs and ride the rocking horse. He has a good appetite and sleeps well. He could make the sound of mama and could express goodbye and welcome by gestures.

Cassie

CassieGirl, born August 2009
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Cassie is a beautiful little girl who is 5 years old. She was found by a family when she was about 7 months old. They took her home and kept her until she was about 17 months old, then took her to the police station. Cassie was found to have cerebral palsy. She had a difficult time at the orphanage when she first arrived. She kept calling for her “neinei” (grandmother) and was inconsolable. After a bit, she warmed to the nannies and the other children. Through therapy, Cassie’s muscles are less tight, and she is able to crawl, sit alone, and can stand with assistance. She can speak (though not as well as her peers), and uses some sign language. Cassie can count, and has a good memory. She likes to sing, and loves to play with dolls! Reading about her progress with therapy at the orphanage, imagine what could happen with formal therapy once she is home! Sweet Cassie is waiting for a family. Please bring her home soon!

Sherman

Sherman  (1) Sherman  (2)Boy, born August 2004
PRC
Mild cerebral palsy

Sherman is outgoing, clever and diligent. He enjoys talking with others and likes to imitate sounds and actions. Sherman enjoys listening to music and loves to dance! He is curious about new things and likes to read books, look at pictures, listen to stories and go outside. Sherman has mild CP and his physical development is behind other children of his age. He has been in a foster family since 2006 and really thrived in that environment. Sherman likes to be independent and is a great helper!

Update from his host family: Sherman is being hosted in the US this winter! Sherman is a super sweet boy who is easy to fall in love with. He is overall very obedient and does a good job communicating despite language differences. He has been picking up some English, including counting and saying things like, “bye-bye” and “good night”. He gives and receives hugs, kisses, and high fives easily. He is polite and will say, “Thank you Mama” when the host mom gives him something. He gets very excited sometimes and will get very loud and animated (both when he’s happy and upset). He is very ticklish, smiles and laughs a lot, and loves to dance, which is super cute! He is also quite the poser for the camera. He is pretty easy going and has become easy to correct. When he really wants something or things don’t go his way (i.e. losing at a game) he will whine and pout, but usually can be persuaded to have a better attitude pretty quickly. He likes to play by himself a lot, but will play with others sometimes. He doesn’t seem interested in watching TV, unless it’s a Chinese cartoon (then he could probably spend hours watching if you let him). Sherman likes playing in the backyard~ going down the slide, digging in the gravel, riding bikes and scooters around. He also seems to like putting the train track together and running the train on it. He found the game, “Trouble” and LOVES IT! He also got the card game “War” for Christmas and has enjoyed playing that a lot. The host family played bowling on the X-box with Sherman, which he thought was the coolest thing ever. He loves the computer and will ask to go on it a lot, and the host family got him an mp3 player for Christmas which he now listens to all the time. When he first arrived, Sherman could do a 24 piece puzzle independently, but was frustrated and unable to do puzzles larger than that. The host family gave him a 48 piece puzzle for Christmas, which he tried to trade with the host daughter, because she got a 24 piece puzzle that he could do. Of course, she didn’t want to trade because hers was a princess and she can’t do bigger puzzles either. Anyway, we have been working on how to do puzzles together (separating the edge pieces, looking for all the pieces for one particular part of the puzzle, etc.), and one day he called the host mom downstairs to show her that he had put his 48 piece puzzle together completely independently! She was so proud of him! The host family hopes Sherman finds a forever family soon!

Wesley

Wesley (1)

Wesley (2)Boy, born July 2013
PRC
Mild cerebral palsy, encephalodysplasia rickets

Wesley is an adorable little boy! When lying on a bed, his little feet will kick up and down ferociously. With the support of things, he can sit for a while. His little hands can make a hugging movement, signaling to the nannies for a hug. He loves to smile and is clingy to the nannies. He can clap his hands and sometimes holds the milk bottle on his own. There is a difference between Wesley’s movements and other children of the same age, perhaps because of the weight of his head. When he sits, he has to lean against a fixed support, and because of the weight of his head, he does not like to sit and always lies on the bed. Wesley can lift his head, turn over and grab toys to play with. He also likes to listen to music. Wesley is not shy with strangers. He likes to be held and will let anyone hold him. He likes to have the older women sing to him, talk to him and feed him. We really hope Wesley finds a home soon!

Cerebral palsy, bilateral corneal leukoma, congenital heart disease, congenital nerve deafness

Felicia is an energetic and adorable little girl. She really likes to cling to her nannies. Each time she sees them, she will extend her little hands and want the nannies to hold her. She is also rather sensible. When the nannies are busy, she will cleverly go to the side and play on her own, sometimes raising her little head to look and then continuing to play in her own little world.

Little Felicia has rehabilitative training every day in the mornings and afternoons, so that she is able to become more agile. She has congenital nerve deafness. She does not respond to her name, and she cannot hear someone calling her from behind or from another room. She has not been potty trained and cannot go to the bathroom on her own. When the nannies play with her, she is really adorable and rather likes to smile, especially when she plays with light up toys. Help us find a forever family for this little angel!
