Sorenson #

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASorenson (1)Boy, born 2010
retinopathy, premature birth, general overall delays

Listed: April 2, 2015

He is exploring the objects by examining them with his hands, smells them, and touches them with his face. When he drops an object he bends and looks for it by stretching his hands in different directions. With purpose of developing the motor skills of his hands the foster family is giving him smaller objects and treats.

He moves around in the space by crawling or walking. He can steps mainly on his toes.When he walks on his own, he helps himself by using a wall or other horizontal purpose. When he walks with an adult he is led by the hand. With the help from the foster mother he is climbing up stairs and changing the left and the right foot. He pushes his cart, which gives him an opportunity to walk with changing feet. In standing position he can step on his right foot fully. He loves to play a game in which he is standing up and holds the hands of the adult and springs with his feet.

He pronounces separate words and phrases. He loves to play with the family members. He enjoys baths and plays with the water and the rubber duck. The child freely communicates with the foster parents and likes to play with other children. During the contact with a stranger at first he is reserved.

He announces when he is hungry or thirsty. He can eat with spoon and meet difficulties in getting food from the cup, but doesn’t miss his mouth. He can hold independently solid food – pretzel or cracker. He learns how to drink from a cup.

 

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.

Kraig #29-10

Kraig_Sept 2015 Kraig2_Sept 2015Boy, 7 years old
blind
Prematurely born with low birth weight; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis; ROP (Retinopathy of the prematurely born) with detachment of the retina in both eyes – second type, final stage; Amaurosis; Delays in the physical and neuro-psychical development.

Listed: September 2014

UPDATE from a family who met him in 2016: I spent a week with Kraig at the children’s home. He is very well cared for and loved by the Nannies, but they are so limited in respect for knowing how to care for a blind child and being able to provide what he needs. He cannot play with most of the toys because he cannot see them. He is walking VERY well. He has a very hard time when the room gets loud and he does self soothe by putting his hands on his ears and rocking. I believe with a good school/program he would learn how to live daily life as a blind person and be fully functional. He really wants to be loved. He would even let me put my hand on his head or rub his back. He would be a real Mama’s Boy! I would love to help find him a family and I will commit to helping that family fundraise as much as I possibly can.

Kraig needs a family! His most recent update shows he is doing worse than previously; he has started some auto-aggressive behaviors and autistic traits – which is not a surprise since he’s blind and doesn’t have a lot of stimulation and attention in his environment.

Kraig doesn’t talk but understands the speech of the adults, reacts to his name but not always, and pronounces accidental combinations of sounds. He doesn’t use non-verbal means or gestures to communicate. He likes to cuddle in familiar adults.

He laughs loud when teased and expresses positive emotions to interactions with familiar adults. When he is anxious, he exhibits auto-aggression. He cries form strangers. Sometimes he lives in his own world, does stereotypical movements (rocks), and refuses to carry out instructions. He becomes very restless in a noisy environment, when the tone of the voice is raised or at loud sounds (hi puts his hands on his ears). He has difficulties accepting new things.

Kraig tolerates close contact with familiar adults but doesn’t interact with his peers due to his vision. He walks with support and around unmoving support. He makes independently several steps but is afraid. He moves comparatively calmly in a familiar environment. He is terrified by the walks in the yard. He has good appetite and eats well but doesn’t gain weight well.

Kraig plays with musical toys. He likes to listen to music and songs. He claps his hands and is happy then. He prefers familiar toys and children’s songs. He has difficulties accepting new games and needs time to get used to them. He holds objects in his hands. He can play for a long time with appropriate musical toys – hits a drum and tambourine and waves with rattles.

Updated photos from Sept 2015 — the agency has videos available, too.

Lonny

LonnyBoy, born 2014

Lonny is a darling little 20 month old baby boy who loves to cuddle. Just look at those kissable little cheeks! He rolls over, sits without support, and babbles. He likes to listen to music and watch TV. Which makes me laugh just a little. Can you imagine how this little one would thrive in a family!?

The agency’s team spent time with him and all said he was such a cuddle bug! This sweet little one needs a family to call his own! Could Lonny be your son?

She walks independently, throws a ball, and runs to her nanny when she is called. She feeds herself with a spoon. She is described as a happy, outgoing little girl. When asked what her favorite things are her caregiver said that she likes to play with stuffed animals and take the other kids’ shoes off! Too funny!

Gideon

gideonBoy, born 2001
HIV

He was hosted summer 2016:
We have tons of pictures of Gideon. He is such a good kid and he so badly wants a family of his own. He absolutely wants to be adopted! He has told us this many times during his stay so far. He also knows no one has chosen him due to his HIV status. He said he wants a family and to be loved like everyone else. It is heart breaking. Through it all though, he keeps such a good sense of humor and positive attitude. This boy needs a family and I believe he would bring countless blessings to his forever family. He is a really good kid who really wants a family.

He ages out in January of 2017 so a family must file an I600a by January 2017!

Dorri

Dorri3Girl, born 2008
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: August 16, 2016

Dorri came to meet us accompanied by her foster father.  It was obvious that he adored Dorri and he told us that she is very smart.  He said “We cannot make her life better but we have hope for her to have a better future.”  Dorri is fostered by a mom and dad.  There is another child in the home who is 3 years old.  Dorri plays well with the other child.  When asked if she liked animals she told us that she loves dogs and that she has a very big dog at her house.  Her foster father started laughing and told us it was a big toy dog!  She is described as a very gentle child who loves people and connects well with adults and peers.  She does a lot of things at home, cleaning the floor or her parents shoes, just to be helpful.  She was observed throwing away her sucker paper and stick and then wiping her own face, without being told.  Reportedly she is able to do good self-care.

Her foster father said they have to control the amount of food she eats stating that she seems to keep eating and doesn’t know when to stop.  When we asked her if she had a favorite food, she told us her favorite was suckers…after we had just given her one.  She speaks very clearly, was very affectionate and was also giving kisses to the orphanage worker.  Dancing and singing makes her happy.  Her foster father said she rarely throws a tantrum but when she does they ignore her and she quits.  She is currently attending Kindergarten at a private special education school.  There are 20 students in her class.  She is able to read some very simple words and understands what the teacher tells her.  She seems very intelligent.  When asked her favorite subject, she told us “hula hoop” which we assume is her favorite thing to play with in Kindergarten!  Dorri has Down syndrome and an Atrial Septal Defect which has not been repaired.  She likes to play outside and ride her scooter and tricycle.  Her favorite color is red and she enjoys playing with stuffed animals.

Justin is a sweet boy with a great sense of humor. He loved making silly faces when we were taking his picture. He is an intelligent little guy who is super well-mannered. While visiting him, we observed him clean up his candy wrappers, wipe off his mouth, and wash his hands without being told to. He is well behaved in school and always follows rules and instructions. Justin relates well with peers and adults and loves to help out and play with the younger children. Justin adjusts well to change as he started a new class this semester and adapted well with no problems. Justin is also very detail oriented. He is well organized and can describe something he saw with great detail. Justin is in third grade in a special education school that focuses more on social and basic living skills. He is able to read and write simple words and phrases. He enjoys picture books, animals, and coloring. One of his favorite things to do is play games with a basketball. While visiting Justin, he was great at repeating English words. We pointed to different body parts and he repeated, “eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, ears”. He also counted to ten with us!

Justin has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. He lived in a foster home when he was younger but now lives in the orphanage. Justin understands what a family is and expressed that he very much wishes to have a mom and a dad of his own. What a blessing he will be to a family.

Mara

Mara-1596Girl, born 2005
T-G
neurodegenerative disease (encephalomyelopathy), scoliosis, global developmental delay (mild-mod.), leg length discrepancy w/low muscle tone, low muscle tone in right hand

Total sweet heart alert! The agency’s team got to see Mara for the second time when they visited in May!

With total politeness she asked for a pack of gummy snacks. A girl that knows what she wants. Soon she was showing off her talent to color! Wow does this girl have skill. Colors all out and organized, color page tilted ever so slightly, and bent into the coloring pose she started her master piece. As we watched she made the most deep-in-thought faces as she decided exactly how she wanted the final product to be.

Mara is such a gentle soul. She has an adorable smirk and wise, knowing eyes. She loves drawing, puzzles and going to school. And she was very, very pleased with her new haircut– she “likes it short because it’s easier to fix and much cooler”. She is so incredibly persistent, such as hard worker. Her foster mom said “She is always like this. She comes home from school and does her work, I never have to remind her. She doesn’t even stop to eat her snack until she has completed all her work.” What an amazing kid!

Mara has a neurodegenerative disease — that is an umbrella term for the progress loss of function of her nervous system. She also has scoliosis. She gets occupational and physical therapy weekly and her foster mom says it has really helped her posture and endurance. Mara walks, goes up and down stairs and can even jump. She has weakness in her arms and legs, but she really impressively compensates when doing daily activities. She is independent with dressing, bathing, and eating.

Unfortunately, we don’t know specifics about Mara’s disease or how fast it will progress. She was seen by a neurologist in 2010, but they were not able to reach an official diagnosis. They refer to it as “encephelomylopathy” in her official paperwork, which is, again, an umbrella term for any disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Sweet Mara is such a joy. She deserves a family who will be detectives and help determine what is causing her weakness. She deserves a family that will challenge her with puzzles, math problems and lots of therapy. She deserves a family that will be there, whether the disease progresses rapidly or very slowly. She deserves love. She deserves her family.

Mara is a go getter. She is sweet. She is looking for her forever family. Could that be you?

Maddox

MaddoxBoy, born 2015
T-G
Down syndrome
Cuddle bug alert! This special little guy is not quite one and oh my is he ever precious! When the agency’s team met Maddox in May 2016, he stretched out on the mat like a little frog in the sun. Each time someone would talk he would turn to face them, tilting his little head to the left. He played with the little rattle and enjoyed observing the other older kids play in the room.

Like most little ones he really seemed to enjoy snuggle time. Between his caregivers and the Superkids team he was snuggled a bunch. Who can resist a huggable, lovable baby?

Maddox has Down syndrome and after much consideration and love his birth parents have decided that making an adoption plan is best for his future.  The agency has his full profile, including medical information and photos.

Daniel is 7 years old and living with a foster family right now. He has epilepsy and was born very premature, so has additional developmental delays. Otherwise, he is physically healthy. Daniel is described as a welcoming and upbeat child, who is outgoing. He enjoys playing with other children and can sometimes be bossy towards them. At times, Daniel prefers to play by himself. He wants to be adopted, and does not present any serious behavioral difficulties for his foster parents.

Daniel is able to feed himself and help around the house with chores like setting the table. He is potty trained and is reported to sleep well. Daniel understands what is said to him, and can communicate in full sentences; however, he does have a speech defect that makes it sometimes difficult to understand what he is saying. He has been diagnosed with a moderate mental delay. Daniel will begin school in the fall, which should give his foster family a better idea of his ability to learn in a school environment.

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.

Larry #2-4

Larry collageBoy, age 4
Diagnosis: Down syndrome

Larry has Down syndrome and some of the typical delays that are common with his diagnosis. He is not yet walking independently, though his report indicates it is because he refuses to practice when he doesn’t want to! He plays with toys and enjoys the ones that play with music. When the staff attempts to work with him on fine motor skills, once he realizes it is ‘work”, he refuses to comply. He is not yet using words, but he IS communicating through non-verbal means. He needs a family that will bring him home and teach him appropriate communication skills and work with him on that all too common “Down syndrome stubborn streak” to help him continue to develop new skills.

Ruthie will be two in just a few weeks and it sounds like she is so loved by her nannies!

Ruthie is lively, lovely and restless who loves laughing and crawling everywhere. She can grasp the toy trolley and push it forward and also turn to look at nanny from time to time, because she wants to know if she is being watched; if the nanny is looking at her, she will raise her hands very happily and make a bye gesture or push the toy trolley more quickly; sometimes, she would fall down, but as soon as the nanny hugs her and comforts her, she would laugh immediately. She likes listening to music, and she can imitate the actions of clapping hands, shaking head and also will laugh whenever hearing the familiar children’s song. She cannot sit down for a long time, and she likes climbing onto the table top. Every time, when the nanny puts her onto the chair, she would climb onto the table top while the nanny is not looking at her and giggles to express that she has climbed onto and show her great ability.

Ruthie has a $6500 agency specific grant with her current agency.

Tamarix

TamarixGirl, born 2004Tamarix
PRC
Deaf

Tamarix is a strong willed girl who is 12 years old. Tamarix came into care as a baby, and was found to have a CHD (ASD – already repaired), a cataract of her right eye (post surgery), and congenital deafness. Tamarix is quite able to care for her own needs. She attends a school for the deaf, where she has learned sign language (CSL). Tamarix prefers to do things her own way (remember the strong willed part?), and can be very stubborn. Tamarix has 2 years to find a family before she ages out. It is difficult to say if Tamarix understands adoption, and what it will mean for her life. We know the great difficulties she will face as she becomes an adult with hearing loss in her country. We hope there is a family who will be able to give her the love and support she will need.

NOAH and MASON

Noah & MasonBoys, age 8
PRC

The agency is hoping to find a family where these boys can be adopted together.  They are available separately — in which case we would split any grant funds they may have in half.

Meet Noah and Mason. They are the best of friends. Mason is deaf but Noah knows sign language. They are so funny together and truly the best of buddies. Everyone would love to see them placed together. Noah will be 9 in November and Mason just turned 8 in May.

Noah had cleft lip and received sponsorship through Love Without Borders in 2009. His file said he is mentally disabled and umbilical hernia. He was polite and funny and very interactive with us.

Mason has severe hearing loss and his file said he had a cochlear implant but he does not use it. The agency has lots of pictures and video of the boys interacting together. Mason loves to perform. Additional information is available on these boys.

If these boys are adopted together, the orphanage will waive one of their orphanage donation fees and the current agency has added another $4000 grant if they are adopted together.

The agency’s team visited Levron for the third time in April. We glanced at this paperwork then looked a little closer. It was his 3rd birthday! So we sang, and Levron got 2 packages of fruit snacks rather than the standard 1 package per child.

My favorite memory of Levron from the April trip is how much he loved looking at himself in the mirror! He looked and giggled and kissed himself then looked at himself again. It was just too adorable! Another thing that brought peals of laughter from him was playing peek-a-boo! And his laugh is so cute! We couldn’t help laughing with him!

Levron was sooooo close to walking when we met him! He stacked cups for us and really loved looking at books. He babbles but isn’t saying words yet.

Quinn Leigh

Quinn Leigh (1)Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome

Quinn Leigh has been described by caregivers as clever, introverted, cute and energetic. Quinn Leigh lives in an imitation family on the orphanage grounds, which is like a foster family, so she is receiving more one-on-one attention than some other children.

Quinn Leigh can use her hands to hold small objects, such as sticks, books, spoons, etc. Quinn Leigh can pass toys between both of her hands and can use hands to support herself. When Quinn Leigh is sitting up the child has good balance and can change her position freely. Quinn can crawl, she can stand up by herself and is learning to walk. Quinn Leigh likes to walk around using small chairs and stools to help her balance.Quinn Leigh (2)

Like many children with Down syndrome, Quinn Leigh’s language abilities are delayed compared to other children her age without Down syndrome. However, she can say words like “ma ma,” “ba ba,” and she imitates what adults and children around her are saying.

Quinn Leigh enjoys listening to music, looking at picture books and dancing. She can color on paper and play with puzzles. She is clearly a very curious little girl and always seems to want to figure out how things work. We hope we are able to find her Forever Family soon!

Upon coming into care after being found, he was noted to have no right hand, a right leg that was longer and weaker than the left, and to have Down syndrome. His health has reportedly been good. He loves striking two things together to make sounds and climbing. His development is delayed but his gross motor skills are emerging. Recently he has shown improvements in learning to listen and expressing his emotions when upset. This boy is waiting for a family with the resources he needs to reach his full potential.

Dabney

DabneyBoy, born November 2003
PRC
Severe disorders of mental development; agenesis of corpus callosum; rickets

It is believed Dabney has Down syndrome (as it is listed his file twice) but there had not been a karyotype to confirm.

Listed:  June 2016

Dabney is said to be fairly “high functioning”. He needs to be adopted prior to his 14th birthday, or he will age out and remain an orphan.  His report is outdated; but as of 2009 he had good self-help skills, and was described as helpful and talented.
