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.

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.

Update 2016: She had the tendon release surgery and can now walk independently with a walker. She has been moved to a group home, where she is making a lot of progress in all areas. She talks very well and is able to answer questions, share about her life and carry on a complete conversation. She’s learning to write and to compensate for the weakness in her left arm. In the videos, when prompted, she does use her left arm/hand. She is able to pull herself up and manipulate/control her walker in order to independently navigate her environment. She demonstates a good imagination and an ability to pretend play in the videos when she interacts with a doll (burps it. changes the diaper, applies powder to it, etc). She is a very sweet and lively little girl.

Photos and videos from January 2016 are available.

 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.

Austyn (1)

Austyn (2)Boy, born August 2007
PRC
Albinism, Significant Motion and Intelligence Delays

Austyn is a miracle-in-the-making. He is significantly developmentally delayed in all areas. As he was previously in an institutionalized setting, he has made tremendous strides since arriving at the New Day Foster Home. Many have been praying for this special young boy and cheering for him. Recently, his adoption file has been completed in country, and he can now be officially matched with his forever family.

Austyn is introverted, has a ready smile, likes music, likes snuggling and is full of energy. A special education teacher at New Day provided an extensive report describing his delays, which is available for prospective adoptive families. These delays include limited mobility, non-verbal communication and in the past he had experienced trouble chewing and swallowing food, but is now able. He is progressing in mobility and is able to walk unassisted for short periods of time although prefers to have something to hold on to. Austyn also has low vision, which is associated with the condition of albinism, but he does see and recognize things. Austyn is attached to his main caregivers and benefits from predictability and routine. He is hypersensitive to most sensory experiences and exhibits many self-stimulation behaviors when he is over stimulated (relaxing and gentle music can help him calm). Austyn is attending preschool each afternoon for an hour and 15 minutes. For most activities Austyn has a helper that works one-on-one with him.

According to the special education teacher, “With the consistency of a loving family and a team of educators and therapists, Austyn will continue to make progress in all areas of his development.”

AustinAge: 9 years (turning 10 soon)
Special needs: moderate mental delay, equinovarus (club foot) of both feet, strabismus

Austin does not take any medications with regards to his special needs.

Austin is curious boy who likes exploring his environment and forming new social relationships. His initiative and independence level are increasing. Austin loves music and he clearly love making photos with a cellphone.

Austin is a sociable child who initiates contact with adults easily. He likes asking questions and he also answers the questions asked by an adult. He is described as a child, who prefers communicating and interacting/playing with adults and not with children. However, this is typical for children who have spent long time in institution. When with other children, Austin would talk to them, which is a good sign for his abilities to socialize and interact.

Austin goes to a mainstream school where he does not receive any resource help with the school syllabus. Perhaps if he had the opportunity of working with a resource teacher, he would have been able to achieve better results in his school performance.

Austin has formed self-service and hygiene habits. He eats independently. He dresses and undresses himself with minimal help from an adult. He needs short instructions during his morning and evening routine. Austin controls his physiological needs.

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.

Niko (1)Boy, 7 years old
Moderate mental delays, speech delay

Update March 2016: Because of his problem with having almost no speech, it is impossible to enroll him in the local school as there are no specialists there to work with him and to help him – like speech therapist, resource teacher, etc. The orphanage director thinks that the mental delays he was diagnosed with is just because he does not talk. They think that actually he is very smart and intelligent child! The staff thinks that if he is enrolled in a school for deaf children he will master sign language and the communication with him will be of full value. He was also put under general anesthesia and his hearing was tested – the conclusion after this examination is that he has adequate social hearing. The nurse explained that there is no anatomic reason for the lack of speech related with his hearing apparatus. He does not talk but presently, he uses around 4-5 words. He pronounces “yes” and “no” well, he says also “thank you” but is not so understandable and clear. The staff thinks that if he works daily with speech therapist there is a chance that he advances quickly.

He understands everything. The staff shared that his biological mother also does not talk. Usually he sits down and colors. He does very well in coloring. But usually he does this only if he decides to. He is very willful and wants to do the things that he wants to, not what he is told. He can put elements on the board by shape and size.

He usually plays alone and he likes to watch TV and listen to music. He is very independent child: he dresses and undresses himself, folds his clothes and makes his bed alone. He usually washes his face and teeth alone but for bathing the staff help him. He can eat without an help.

We really think that he has a lot of potential if he has the chance to work with specialists, especially – speech therapist, resource teacher and occupational therapist. He is good child who deserves better life like every child, but he needs a family who will provide him with all resources that will help him develop his potential, master new skills and knowledge and especially, environment where he will be understood. He deserves a family, who will unconditionally love him, help and support him, a family who will accept him with all of his nature, character and needs.

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.

Guardian AngelCharlotteSimeon, Born October 2007
Significantly delayed; Cerebral palsy
Charlotte, born 2002
significantly delayed

Simeon is a beautiful Roma child with dark hair and big brown eyes.  He is significantly delayed, and diagnosed with cerebral palsy.  We are trying to get more information on his social history.  Simeon is a fraternal twin, whose sister has already been adopted.

Simeon is described as mostly non-verbal, and is not able to walk on his own.  There just seems to be so much potential for him in a family environment.  He is already an outcast because of his darker skin and will be left institutionalized – and likely bedridden — if not adopted.

From a family who visited with him in 2011:  Simeon is barely responsive to stimuli, but I believe that could change if he received regular, loving attention.  I didn’t observe any of the orphanage workers spending much time interacting with him.  There were times that I was able to get him to smile and grip my hand.  After a few days, he was even able to clap!  But most of the time he is staring off in any direction and seems completely unable to control most of his movements.  He was always either lying down or propped up in a sitting position.  I never heard him speak.  I also never heard him cry or fuss. Overall, a very calm child.

Married couples only, larger families and older parents welcome.

AckleyBoy, 12 years old

background retinopathy of the right eye ( blindness) and high myopia in the left eye; some delay in all aspects of psychological development; severe mental delay;

Ackley is very agile. He runs fast without stumbling over or bumping into things. He orientates very well in different familiar spaces, without bumping into furniture.

Despite his impaired vision, he presents with relatively good perceptions and notions regarding his familiar environments. He remembers things that are emotionally significant for him or attractive, for a longer period of time.

Ackley presents with well-differentiated emotional reactions that are correspondent to the respective situation. He accepts new rules easily. He doesn’t demonstrate any aggressiveness towards other children or adults. He understands different questions and gives meaningful answers – “Yes”, “No”, “I don’t want to”.

Ackley uses a greater number of words now and his active vocabulary has improved.  He attends a school for children with vision impairments where he adapted relatively easy. As reported by his teachers at school, Ackley copes with the requirements at school.
Ackley eats independently. He can partly undress himself and take his shoes off/put them on.

Jack-2004 (2)Boy, born 2004
PRC
bilateral cleft lip and palate – repaired; ear deformities and partial hearing loss
Jack desperately wants to be adopted! Jack was born with bilateral cleft lip and palate, which was repaired when he was two.He has some ear deformities, and has partial hearing loss. In spite of that, he communicates freely. His communication skills have taken a big leap forward in the past couple of years. He is very tall, and has beautiful big eyes and long eyelashes. Jack is friendly and outgoing. He plays well the the other children, and they like him a lot. He has many friends.He loves to make things, and his favorite activity is handcrafts. He would love to become an engineer, because he likes to fix things. He also thinks that if he was an engineer, he could make a lot of money and but a car. Jack likes noodles, dumplings and chicken. Oh, and chocolate too, he tells me with a laugh.He is still hopeful that he might be chosen, even though he has waited so long.

Jack is so eager to have a family and go to America. This is his dream. He asks the caregivers constantly if a family is coming for him. He asked me, “Is it today?”

From his host mama:
Jack is a great kid who likes to engage people with his sense of humor. He has a lot of energy but can focus and be still when needed. He is very willing to try new things. He is easy going and has been happy to go along with our family’s routines. He loves to make things with his hands in a constructive and mechanical way and likes to figure out how things work.

He has moderate hearing loss in the right ear, but it does not hinder him. He communicates well and is picking up English words easily. His repaired cleft lip/palate do not seem to bother his speech and he prefers soft foods, noodles being his favorite.

He does not appear to have much confidence in school work and struggles and or quits when he can’t do something well. He doesn’t have many social skills but that is to be expected and will require patience and attention to help him “catch-up”. However his manners are perfect and he is very sweet with the younger children in the hosting group.

From a family that met him 3/16:
He’s a good size for his age. I was allowed to hold him and he let me do the “mom away”. I kept trying to get into his line of vision, but he kept averting his gaze. It seemed like he could possibly be purposefully avoiding eye contact. I was able to easily shift him to a seated position in my arms, though I don’t think he could sit unassisted.

Scott photo1ScottBoy, born 2014
PRC
spinal meningocele, anal atresia

oh sweet baby!

Scott was left at the orphanage when he was only four days old. He was diagnosed with anal atresia and received corrective surgery for this. Part of his lower digestive tract was removed during surgery, which may affect his bowel control in the future. Scott also has a tumor on his waist that will require surgery for spinal meningocele. Scott can sit and crawl. He says “mama” and “papa” and understands what is said to him. Scott likes playing games and has a ready smile. He also likes to be cuddled and comforted by the nannies at the orphanage. Could you be Scott’s family?

UPDATED:  Scott, age 1.5, is a real miracle. He was abandoned as a newborn infant in August of 2014 with multiple problems, including a heart defect, anal atresia and spina bifida. Within the first 12 days of his life, he had two intestinal surgeries that both failed. After the second surgery failed, the local surgeons decided to give up.  He was sent to Little Flower for hospice care.

The good people at Little Flower write:  When this beautiful little boy arrived at our home we discussed the various options for treatment.  We could not bring ourselves give up and let him die because of a simple, correctable defect, so we transferred him to Beijing so that surgeons could try to repair the damage from the first two surgeries.   During that surgery he was diagnosed with short bowel syndrome.  We knew that meant a very long road for this little guy, but hoped that he might beat the odds.

Because of the failed surgeries, much of his intestine had been removed; this made it nearly impossible for him to absorb nutrition.  The doctors tried many, many things to help him, including various feeding pumps, numerous types of specialized infant formula (and even donor milk) as well as parenteral nutrition.  He was discharged from the hospital over and over, but repeatedly needed to be re-admitted with dehydration and serious infection.  He was not able to gain any weight and as hard as we were fighting, we just weren’t sure he would be able to pull through. His hospital bills were growing and it was getting harder and harder to raise funds for this little boy whose prognosis was so poor.

Finally, a very special donor agreed to help him and we were able to admit him to the hospital for long term care and specialized feeding. We hoped that if his remaining intestines had a chance to rest for a prolonged period, perhaps they would be able to recover. It took him a few weeks to stabilize, and then slowly he started to gain weight.   When he was 10 months old he had another surgery to close his colostomy.  This little fighter was not going to give up!  However, it still took another 5 months for his intestines to heal enough for him to wean off the parenteral feeding.  Gradually, he began to get his nutrition from his bottle and baby food.

After 10 long months of hospitalization, Scott returned home a changed boy! He is now very stable and able to eat just like the other babies.   He sits up, crawls, and babbles – he has a lot to say!   He still needs surgery for his spina bifida (his cardiac issue is now resolved), but we are SO glad that his gastrointestinal issues are finally under control.  We are grateful to the doctors who were willing to take a chance on this “hopeless” little guy and worked so hard to provide the medical care that he needed to survive.  Now Scott needs a family of his own!

Boy, born 2011

Internal hydrocephalus compensated disgenesis of corpus callosum

Will is a twin with Harry, but his twin has been adopted by a family in his country, please lets find him a family!!

From a family that met him 2/16:
Will is a sweet little boy. He has the most amazing blue eyes! I have not seen any evidence of the way his hydro is effecting him except one of his eyes turns in but it does not seem to impede his balance or his ability to play. He goes out to play with all the other kids but is not allowed to do dance with them. He seems to be the more reserved of the twins but that could just be from always feeling like he is being left out and rejected. I really hope that having a family will put that spark back into his eyes.

AdolfoBoy, just turned 7 years

Moderate mental delay and epilepsy (with improvement noted as regards the frequency of the seizures, and with permanent medication therapy), delayed neuropsychological development; delayed speech development (well-developed receptive speech, poorly developed expressive speech).

Adolfo’s “seizures” are explained by the staff at his orphanage as moments of falling asleep that last for a short period of time (3-5 minutes). Since his placement in the Center for Family Type Accommodation in October 2014, Adolfo had only three “seizures” that were more likely “petit mals”, as there were no muscle spasms, convulsions, eye turning, foaming at the mouth, snoring sounds, etc. Some of his “seizures” happened at a time when he had high fever.

Adolfo is a sociable and energetic child. He interacts with all the children and the staff eagerly and with great joy. He sometimes shows preference for some of the other children in the Center and for some of the staff members.  He tries hard to pronounce words and names properly. He makes simple sentences consisting of several words. He responds adequately to adults’ requests and he follows simple instructions.

Adolfo has mastered all basic self-service skills- he eats independently and drinks from a cup. He can put on his clothes and shoes independently. He uses the restroom independently during the day. Adolfo is working on affirming his skills for washing his hands and face and brushing his teeth independently.

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.

AishaGirl, recently turned 14

Severe mental delay; congenital convergent strabismus and horizontal nystagmus; disorder of the vegetative nervous system.

Aisha is described as mostly calm and cheerful. She doesn’t demonstrate any aggressive behavior. The stability of her attention needs to improve further as she has some difficulties focusing her attention on certain objects and she easily gets distracted.
Aisha is a very affectionate child and she loves receiving individual attention.

Aisha has formed self-service habits. She eats independently and slowly as her chewing reflex needs to develop further. The level of independence and inattentiveness she presents with should improve further as well. She needs support and supervision in performing her daily tasks and activities.

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.

ArdellAge: 7 years

Special needs: malformative syndrome; epilepsy(generalized tonic-clonic seizures,some of which with right-sided lateralization); infantile cerebral palsy – quadripyramidal syndrome; flexion contractures of the limbs; delayed physical development; profound mental delay;

Ardell presents with very poor motor activity due to his severe neurological condition. He performs some weak uncoordinated movements with his arms and legs. When in a lying position, he turns his head to the side.

Ardell produces some incomprehensible sounds in his spontaneous reaction when he is experiencing some kind of discomfort. In relation with his severe health condition Ardell doesn’t show much interest in objects.
Hearing adults’ voices and their gentle touch also influences Ardell’s general life status, although he is not an active participant in communication but just responds to this influence. Ardell has a referent adult, who tries to make him feel calm and comfortable.

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.

She hasn’t manifested any signs of aggressiveness, depression or anxiety. Anna hasn’t yet formed any language skills but she smiles when jested by an adult or even in response to an adult showing up.

HIV, Thrombocytopenia (a blood clotting disorder)

This adorable sweet boy is doing well with his medication regime. He has weekly blood tests for the Thrombocytopenia. He takes meds twice a day for HIV. His levels are now normal and the virus is apparently undetectable. He has those blood tests every 2 wks. He likes swimming (he can swim underwater), building with blocks, and playing with cars. This child is naïve, very trusting, and has no fear of strangers. He is good with other kids, but timid & afraid of rough/big kids. There are no limitations on his activity due to his health. He can run, jump, and swim. He uses knee pads & a helmet when riding a bike in order to prevent injury. He is a gentle boy who use to cry often but he has gotten much better and more confident. He had some significant issues with decay in his front teeth; he saw the dentist in fall 2015 and had his teeth fixed.   Now that his teeth are no longer a source of constant infection, his platelet levels have dropped within normal range!

 

He lives with a foster mother who works very hard to prepare her foster children for adoption.

Bailey CollageGirl, born November 2005
PRC
arthrogryposis

Sweet 10-year-old Bailee is diagnosed as having arthrogryposis, which affects her knees, ankles and elbows. She is a very capable and independent girl despite her limb differences. In November 2015, she received surgery to improve her mobility and she is currently going through rehabilitation for walking. Bailee participates in the big sister program in her institute. Her teachers say she is polite, gets along well with other children, and loves studying. Although she was able to walk with support a little prior to her recent surgery, she had mostly been using a wheelchair to get around. Her teachers report that she is very smart, independent, and capable. Bailee learned to write her name after being shown only once and seldom asks for help. She is strong and very self-reliant both inside and outside of class and laughs happily when she is praised by her teachers. She is well liked and supported by her friends and classmates. Although the orphanage staff say her fingers aren’t affected by arthrogryposis, they do report some weakness in them. She is able to hold a pencil to write many words, do addition and subtraction, and feed herself.

Bailee enjoys singing, crafts, and drawing. Her teacher said that while all of the other children color a page working from the top to the bottom, Bailee starts at the bottom and colors up. When asked why, she replied: “I just want to be different from others.” Bailee is happy in the institute but also has a good attitude about adoption. Her orphanage prepares children very well for families and takes great care of their kids too! Bailee is willing to be adopted by foreigners so she’ll have more friends and people to love her. She told our staff that she would like to have siblings. She also shared that her favorite toys are Barbie dolls and that she likes the color blue. She said she hopes to go to college to become a teacher. What an inspiration this girl will be to the family who says “YES” to her!

Warden-WaldenBoy, born 2012
PRC
Twin brothers
Premature; one brother has autism

 

Warner and Walden are two handsome twin boys who are currently living in different foster families. They see each other periodically but do not have a close relationship. Their reports indicate that they were both born prematurely due to their low weights at the time they were found. Over time, they both increased their food intake and grew in strength.

When Warner was nearly 2 years of age, he could walk steadily, follow simple instructions, and speak 3-5 simple words. He could be stubborn at times like many toddlers, like throwing food he didn’t like in the trash when his foster mom wasn’t looking. He’s an active, outgoing kid who likes interacting with others and playing with toys with other children. According to an update October 2015, he’s made great progress with his communication and language skills; he can answer questions about his name and age, count to 20, express his wants and needs, knows children’s names, and can even recite poems. He has become more independent and can dress himself, feed himself, and use the bathroom. He feels closest to his foster mom and has a few close friends he likes playing with the most. Even though he can be stubborn at times and has an occasional quarrel with his younger foster sister, he still shows his empathy and kindness by helping with chores around the house and even offering his foster parents a back rub when he knows they’re tired!

Walden loves playing with toys, especially ones that make sounds! When he gets a new toy, he likes to shake it first; he’s particularly enthralled by car toys that make engine-like sounds. As an infant, he had some motor development delays; he could crawl and eventually learned to walk, though a bit unsteadily, just before he turned 2 years old. He did not cry often as an infant, and could babble sounds like “ma” and “ah wei”. He would get excited during mealtimes and adorably babble “muma” and scoot closer to anyone holding food. He responds better to familiar people and feels closest to his foster parents, sometimes even putting his arms around them for comfort. When he’s upset, he balls up his fists and his body shakes; his parents help him calm down by holding him and taking him outside. He can recognize his name and although his language skills are limited, he can understand simple instructions. He will sometime engage in repetitive self-soothing behaviors when he feels alone and would benefit from redirection to help him find other ways to comfort himself. An evaluation completed in 2014 suggests a possibility of mild to moderate autism due to his low engagement and minimal communication with others. An update from 2015 tells us he has improved his ability to make eye contact, and can still point to express his wants and needs (for example, when he wants to eat or watch his favorite cartoons). Walden would benefit from a loving, supportive environment and specialized education tailored to his needs.

The current agency has a $4000 grant available to assist families that qualify with the cost of this adoption.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

DanielBoy, 8 years old
CO-HSA

Daniel is an 8-year-old boy that has been in state care for many years. Daniel had a difficult start and experience some trauma at birth resulting in intellectual disability, feeding and digestive issues. Daniel is well bonded to his foster siblings and parents, despite having multiple placements. He was especially close to his foster brother who was recently adopted.

While he is described as having the intellectual functioning of a 1 year old, Daniel appears to be higher functioning. He communicates in one or two words, uses gestures and although he has difficulty with language is very communicative. Daniel is able to guide and provide directions to get to his school. He has a lot of unexplored potential and his social worker believes that learning sign language and other ways to communicate would help him significantly.

Daniel loves to be held and to be around other children and adults. He also loves to eat and until recently, he was unable to do so because of a feeding tube. Daniel’s feeding tube is now removed and is learning how to feed himself without making a mess. He appears to adapt well to almost any situation and is accustomed to being with other children of varying ages. Daniel is a curious and friendly child that would blossom with the love and support of a forever family.
