Katie & Barbie

146066781485749-10Sisters, 6 & 4 years old

Listed March 21, 2016

Katie is a very energetic and open girl. She is very independent and takes care of herself. She lives in a foster family. She is attending preschool and enjoying it very much. She likes art activities and her drawings are very colored and clear. She likes to listen to others reading texts and she listens with understanding and gives right answers. Her answers are logical and understandable. She can count to 10 and she distinguishes between geometric figures, letters and numbers. She has very good memory. She can concentrate and cooperates well with other children. She likes to play outside the house; she can ride a bike and a scooter.

Katie has speech delay and allergies.  She is afraid of storms and lightning. When she is afraid, she is in panic and cries and screams, and even can hit her sister. When her stress is overwhelming, she can destroys toys. But she can talk about her problems and emotions. She is very bonded with her younger sister.

Barbie is 4 years old and she is a calm and smiling girl. She pronounces syllables and speaks single words. She can communicate her needs verbally and she understands all requests addressed to her. She is willing to help. When she is afraid she cries, but silently. A hug from her foster mom or foster dad helps her to become calm, and then she feels safe. She is afraid of big groups of people and of loud shouting or talking. When her stress is overwhelming she destroys toys or things, gnaws the wall and shoes or books. She is afraid of the sounds of a vacuum cleaner and mixer. Her foster family is trying to help her alleviate her fears with these objects, putting her hands on them (of course when they are switched off). She is willing to share her toys. Barbie likes to play with animals, she likes flowers and compose bouquets. She likes to play with blocks and draw.

She started to walk at age 2. Her gait was “waddling”. In her biological home she was neglected; nobody exercised with her or allowed her to develop her gross motor skills because of her health problem. She was diagnosed with muscular tension and torn hip. Now she is under rehabilitation therapy. She was burned with boiling water, she has a scar on her right forearm.

She still uses diapers. The foster family is trying to teach her to use the potty. She can put on shoes and socks by herself. She is learning to wear other clothes. She can eat and drink by herself. She is very bonded with her older sister.

Her mother has Huntington’s disease. The girls’ father is an alcoholic and has used the physical and psychological violence against them and their mother.  Both girls are believed to have been victims of abuse by their father.

Annie #40-4

Annie-206x300DOB: December 2005

Diagnosis: delays in development -report indicates that due to delayed speech, Autism was initially suspected. However, no formal testing has been done and the child’s development is continuing to improve.

Listed March 2011

Annie’s motor skills are well developed. She walks, runs, catches & throws a ball, climbs, hops on one foot and participates in musical games that require movement. Her fine motor skills are developing as well. She can open/close scissors and is learning to cut with them. She draws on paper, though she is not yet writing letters. She plays with play dough and builds a tower of 12 blocks. She is in the 1st grade and attending school outside the orphanage. She follows verbal directions and responds to her name. She tries to imitate words said by adults. She currently expresses herself non verbally. She is very protective of her possessions. She doesn’t often initiate play with the other children, but she will play close to them. She will join in organized group activities for short periods of time and is very emotionally responsive to familiar adults. She needs extra time to complete tasks and has a short attention span. She stops inappropriate behaviors when redirected by an adult. She feeds and dresses herself. Since she is non verbal, she does not yet indicate that she needs to go to the bathroom on her own, so she is taken on a schedule and is completely toilet trained using this method.

Update March 2014:
She was recently transferred to a mental institution.

The child has moderate mental delay and her neuropsychological development is delayed mostly with regards to her speech. However, as you will see in the videos, the girl is repeating words after an adult and trying to pronounce them as the adult does. She knows and shows all her body parts, she knows how to write the first letter of her name. She also tries to write her full name but still has some difficulties as she is changing the order of the letters. The girl understands everything she is told by adults. She follows instructions and does errands. She is very musical. In the videos you will see her perform dance movements when asked by an adult.

It is obvious that this is a lovely, affectionate child, who seeks adults’ attention, caress and closeness. She is willing to learn new things and I believe that with a constant family environment, providing her with comfort, encouragement, love and attention and with regular individual sessions with a speech therapist, this child could achieve much more progress in her development.
Additional photos & videos are available.

Kiril

Boy, Born January 20, 2004

NEW UPDATE!: What a blessing to still have visibility of Kiril, and know he is still fighting for a chance and waiting for his family to come for him. He is regressing, as he is given little opportunity to stretch or be mobile at all. He needs help for the strength to sit up now, but even still he wears a smile and a light in his eyes. There is a loving, forever family out there for this boy!This spunky little angel is ready to melt your heart! Kiril has blonde hair and hazel eyes, and a smile that can light up a room! He was born with cerebral palsy. One of our own adoptive families who visited with him in March 2008 said this about Kiril: ” I’m a sucker for blondies and this little guy with his green-brown eyes is adorable! He smiled and wanted to interact with me when I came into the room despite the cries of his neighbor. His smiles were brief but heartwarming and then he was curious about what I was up to. Each time the camera flashed he rewarded it with a great grin! Except it was always right AFTER the flash so I couldn’t capture his sweet smile.”

From his medical records: infantile cerebral paralysis, double hemiplegia, epilepsy, optic nerve atrophy, multiple cardiopathies, contracture of hip and knee joints

As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

This child is in a region that is currently not open to adoptions.

He has been living in a boarding school for typical kids, and receiving his own private lessons, but recently was transferred to a facility in another region specifically for children with special needs. His favorite class is math, and he gets great grades in math. His least favorite class is Ukrainian. He is said to learn more slowly than other children, which is why he has required private lessons.

Braden

Braden 2013 (1)Boy, born September 2006

Mental delays, dysontogenetic cardiopathy, convergent squint, umbilical hernia.

Braden lived with his mother until her death before entering the orphanage last year (2011). You can tell he was LOVED and taken care for. He is doing quite well compared to many of the other children which is attributed to being in a family versus institution. Who knows how much he could improve with the love of a family!  He also has a caregiver he has attached to.

He is a mobile child and very active. He tries to walk himself. He understand what most people are talking about but he can’t talk in sentences. He can pronounce some words.  He can’t service himself, need assistance to eat.  He tries to hold a spoon in his hands.  He recognizes his caregivers and can follow simple instructions.  These are all GOOD things!

Update June 2013:
Braden is a very sweet little guy. He is very controlled in his movement and behavior. He understands what you say to him and he responds to directions. He comes highly recommended for adoption by his orphanage as they have seen much progress and potential for him.

Such beautiful hazel eyes this boy has!

More photos available.

From an adoptive family who met him:“Keep in mind we met him in Summer/Fall 2012, and he is now in an internat that is very hard and difficult. When we met “George” he was such a sweet and soft spoken boy. We never saw him exhibit aggressive behavior and our daughter said he was a good friend of hers. He appeared to get along well with the others in the groupa, and always seemed to be smiling when we saw him. His sweet personality, smile, and demeanor captured our hearts. He was very capable of self care and even performed in a play while we were there. He also seemed to enjoy the music during the play and we caught him on camera dancing to the music in his seat while we waited for it to start.”
