Ethan

Ethan Oct 2013 (3)Ethan 2013Boy, born November 1999
HIV, astigmatism

 

Pics from 2013 – he wants to be adopted! 

 

Ethan is in the same orphanage with several other available children. Interested and approved families could adopt multiple children together.

 

From a family who met him in Nov. & Dec. 2013:
Ethan is older than our daughter and so wasn’t in her group. However, he clearly enjoys interacting with the younger kids, and he came into her group room at least two or three evenings each week to play-wrestle and to play games/video games with the younger kids. We met him our first weekend with our daughter, when Ethan came outside for about 2 hours on Saturday to play with the younger kids. He impressed me immensely in that short amount of time. He was gentle and kind with them, laughing and joking. Not once did he display any mean or bullying behavior, which some of the other older boys did. He was very respectful and polite to my husband and me, as well as toward the teachers. That behavior continued every time we saw him for the next six weeks. He especially likes play wrestling with the younger boys, although he is always very gentle with them. Many times he would be play wrestling with one of the younger, much smaller boys, and I’d see him get to a position where he could have easily taken the play too far and hurt the younger boy, but not once did he do so. He always gently set down the younger boy with a big smile. As a result, he is a favorite with the younger boys. He’s also a bit goofy, in an understated way. For example, he likes to wear silly clothing combinations just to get a reaction from the other children. Once he was walking around with his skinny jeans rolled up his legs to look like shorts, but with huge gigantic cuffs. The other kids thought it was hilarious! Ethan told our daughter how much he wants a family. He will be a huge blessing and a wonderful addition to the family that chooses him.

Down syndrome

Lila, born in August 2011, is a little love. Imagine this pretty face with a big smile on it while she reaches up to her new mom or dad! The report for this child with Down syndrome was written when she was about two and a half years old. It describes an introverted child who would lower her head shyly when she was kissed on the cheek, and then peek up to smile and babble at the giver. Lila loved to be cuddled, and was very sensitive to being ignored so the nannies tended to spoil her with lots of attention. She was walking while holding on to someone’s hand, loved music and toys and had a favorite nanny. Would your family like to read more about her and request an update?

Tobias

Tobias (2)Boy, born August 2007
PRC
Delayed mental development

Sweet Tobias was found abandoned at the approximate age of six. SIX..can you even imagine? Tobias has only been in the care of this orphanage for about a year and he recently turned seven years old. At the time he came into care, he was not communicating with anyone, was not potty trained, and had trouble dressing and undressing himself. Most likely a part of that had to do with his profound sadness of losing his family at that age. With the help of his caretakers, now he can look at books, use a spoon to eat independently, can tell the teacher when he needs to go to the bathroom, and he can cooperate with people when they help him get dressed. He sometimes likes to play with other children and he is currently receiving language rehabilitation. Tobias was sent to live in a foster family but attends the school in the orphanage during the daytime hours, where he plays games with the other children and the teacher.Tobias is introverted, but has a ready smile. He does not like to communicate with people. He can complete some simple instructions given by the teacher. He has no facial expression or reaction to strangers. A potential family should be open to speech and language delays. It’s hard to know how much of his needs are true needs versus issues from being abandoned at six at this point. What this child needs most is a family who is open to some unknowns and one who will love him unconditionally for who he is and what he can do!

Deenah #6-20

Deenah (10)Age: 7
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy

Deenah was raised by her birth mother until she was 5 years old. She was removed from the home at that time by social services because the mother could not meet the child’s medical needs.

Deenah has high muscle tone as a result of the CP. She would greatly benefit from the care available in the US, such as botox treatments. She does have some movements in her limbs. She can raise her right arm to shoulder width and will open her hands. She’s receiving physical therapy to assist with her movements. When placed on her stomach, she will lift her head and can control it/move it around to look at desired objects. She attempts to roll over on her back and the staff is working with her on this skill. She sits in a positioning chair and while in the chair, she turns her head toward voices or toys.
She enjoys interactions with other people and will smile and laugh when interacted with. She cries when she wants attention. She appears to understand some spoken commands as she will lift her arm and attempt to hand a toy that she is holding to someone when asked.

Photos and videos from August 2014 are available. In the videos, she is smiling and interacting with the adults in the videos.

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.

Audrey #478

AudreyGirl, 11 years old
Epilepsy (for which she is undergoing anticonvulsant therapy), and mild mental delay

She joins everyday activities and has good leadership skills. Following her placement at the foster family (in April 2013) a positive change is seen in terms of enriching her passive vocabulary.

She uses simple sentences and makes up a logical text with them. A positive change is seen in the girl’s process of thinking. Apart from visual-figurative thinking, she is building skills for thinking aimed at problem solving and coming up with ideas and strategies. During her almost 1-year stay at a foster family environment, she has gradually been provided with options and strategies for solving problems.

This girl has built self-service habits. She is keeping her clothes clean, combing her hair, keeping her belongings in order and helping with laying and cleaning the table. She can make a sandwich for herself if she is hungry.

She is very empathetic and has a heart for weak, hurt or abandoned animals. She has started manifesting this character trait of hers after her placement in the foster family. The foster family has successfully provided emotional comfort, a feeling of safety and support to the child.
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.

Trey and Trent #479

Trey TrentThe younger boy is 9 years old and he has moderate mental delay and conductive hearing loss in one ear, with normal hearing in the other ear. He is very attached to his older brother.

He has started having speech therapy and that is bringing about results – his articulation organs are now more flexible, his intellectual activity which is getting more active in relation to him enriching his active and passive vocabulary, he has formed basic skills for reproducing the rhythm and structure of sentences, he can retell a story by looking at story-related pictures with some help from an adult.

 

The older brother is 11 years old. He is healthy and excellently developing.  He has a strong emotional bond with his younger brother.

He excels at school and is motivated to achieve good results, which is quite unusual in children at that age and is just a wonderful sign for his maturity and feeling of responsibility and also an indication that he would do well and just follow the natural course of becoming fluent in a foreign language and schooling abroad. The older boy is just so ready to leave with an adoptive family.

Because we only have these boys’ file for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

 

These boys can fit a family environment and grow to realize their potential and be well-functioning adults. Hopefully we will see them find their forever home, with loving parents who would give them the chance for a new life.

Eden

Eden Photo 1 May 2014Eden was born in June 2007 and has been diagnosed with kyphoscoliosis with rotation and lordosis of the fourth degree. The position of some of her internal organs deviates slightly from the norm and some of her organs are a little smaller than typical because of her skeletal differences. However, her major organs appear to be healthy and working according to their function.

Eden’s gross motor development is impaired due to her scoliosis, but she does walk and run independently. Her cognitive development is age appropriate. She speaks in complete sentences, recites poetry and loves to sing songs.

Eden is in great need of surgical treatment and therapies for her scoliosis under the loving wings of a dedicated forever family.

From a family who met Eden in May 2014: Eden is our daughter’s best friend at the orphanage. Both girls love to play together and share their things. While we had our daily visits with our daughter, we were told Eden missed her in the group. She welcomed her back with a hug every time and told her, “My dear girl, my best girl, I miss you.”

Eden is a very sweet child who lights up a room. Her ability to walk unassisted impressed us tremendously. She is fully potty-trained and her self-help skills are age appropriate. Eden makes conversation and understands what is happening in her environment. This lovely girl would bring so much joy to a family and we believe her medical condition could be improved through treatments and therapies in the United States.

Garrison #

GarrisonBoy, born 2010

Blind
When taken by the 2 hands, Garrison stands up and has the support of his feet. When he is put on a children’s stool, he sits on it during a meal. He actively moves his hands and legs, kicks and rolls over in bed. He rolls over in free space and turns handsprings.

Garrison is blind. He does not manipulate objects, plays with his hands-hits them against each other, slaps and puts them into his mouth; joins the hands of an adult person. He reacts to a noise and a sound, even to the slightest of them; he listens attentively and grows quiet when he hears music.

He has improved emotional tone-calmly and activelystays awake, smiles and laughs in a loud voice even touched. He recognizes familiar voices, becomes animated and utters sounds. He accepts touch and gets in touch. He tolerates more and more social situations-having a bath, eating and dressing.  He utters syllables – da-da; ba-ba; shouts in a loud voice, uses his voice and utters guttural sounds.

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.

He gets alive at attention, becomes angry at separation, when upset, he cries continuously and is hard to be calmed down. He is active and calm. He can pronounce syllables- ba-ba. The child’s psychomotor development is delayed under all indicators. He has a good emotional status.
