Bryson (1)Bryson is a year and a half old and has congenital Spina bifida with hydrocephalus. At the end of 2015 he underwent a surgery for treatment of the Spina Bifida due to it bursting. From information from the Center staff at the same time the shunt was also removed as the neurologists decided that the child does not need shunt. After these surgeries his condition has considerably worsened. Before the surgeries Bryson was smiling, turning to his name, he made limited movements with his head from lying position, he was moving his upper limbs and was holding tight for a short time objects with his hand. Now he cannot move his limbs, there is no eye contact, does not react to stimulus (toys, different sounds). He has wounds on his body due to sudden crack of capillary. From words of the staff, Bryson still reacts to his name, cries when he is hungry and reacts to pain. Until about a year ago Bryson was fed with tube but with common efforts now he eats by spoon. Bryson is sweet and fragile little boy. Although the bad prognosis of the doctors, he still breaths and fights for his life. Everybody in the Center talk about him with pain in their hearts and tears and their eyes, their innermost dream is good people to be found, who can give their love to Bryson.

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.

Shannon RaeGirl, born 2014
PRC
Dysplasia of thighbones; possible osteogenesis imperfecta

Shannon Rae is almost 18 months old. She was left at an orphanage when she was only a couple of days old. Shannon’s official diagnosis is dysplasia of both thighbones but she’s had two leg fractures and one arm fracture in her short life so we suspect she may have brittle bone disease (osteogenesis imperfecta). We have xrays of her arm and legs. We have requested additional testing, but it is not available in her hometown so we’re urging the orphanage to arrange for this in a bigger city.

Shannon Rae is a cute little girl who laughs out loud and has a ready smile. Shannon cannot bear weight on her legs or sit up on her own, but she is able to wiggle and move her legs freely when laying on her back and she can sit for a short while with support. Could Shannon be your daughter?

 

RebaGirl, born February 2013
H-C
arthrogryposis

Reba is a fun loving toddler. This little lady was initially unsure what she thought about all of the new people in her life, but she quickly settled in. She has a big personality and loves to show off her skills. Reba loves to feed herself. She is pretty good at getting the spoon to her mouth, but this is definitely a slow process sometimes. She also loves to hold her own cup and drink from it. So far, she is a much bigger fan of water than milk, but will slowly sip away at her milk as well. One day, while drinking from her cup, we told her to be careful not to spill it. She quickly replied by lifting the cup over her head and pouring it all over, laughing hysterically at her little joke. She definitely loves to have fun! After that, she switched to a sippy cup, which she almost immediately figured out how to work. Reba is great at following directions and will quickly swing a door shut if you ask her to or wave bye-bye to anyone who is leaving. She is quick to make friends and spent a long time playing with another child one day. Reba would scoot around on her bottom and the other child would follow. We then asked the girls if they could crawl on their knees and both girls quickly switched positions and continued their game. Reba definitely loves to have fun. We took a moto to the hospital one day for an appointment and she loved the ride, looking everywhere as we drove. At the hospital, she was a bit shy with the doctors and preferred to stay with a familiar person, but did willingly accept the candy that the doctors shared with her. Reba has an amazing grin and an easy giggle that are sure to brighten your day.

More developmentally/medically:
Reba can sit, scoot around as mentioned above both on her bum and by sliding her knees together. Her legs to not straighten and she can not stand. She has figured out who to use a plasma car as a means to get places faster and is so cute driving that around. She is very tiny, but adjusting very well in our care. She appears to have some sort of surgery on her feet from before she came into our care. We believe this was to correct club feet. She has arthrogryposis, but it only affects her legs.

boysillouettenophotoBoy, born February 2011:

Diagnosis – lack of protein energy (small height), behavioral disorders. Mental development disorders. Possible Fetal alcohol syndrome. Nightmares;

Seymour has gray eyes and brown hair. The boy is quick-tempered, active, joyful, enjoys playing with Lego and drawing, has speech delay. When he was placed in a foster family, he sometimes used to fell down on the ground and he had poor behavior. Currently his behavior has seriously improved, the boy no longer fells down on the ground and does not cry. The boy needs undivided attention, it is recommended for him to be the only child in the family. When he is together with the foster mother he is obedient, wants all of her attention and love to be focused on him. Previously child was aggressive towards other children (younger half-brother and the girl in the foster family) he hit and bite them. Currently he gets along very well with particular girl. The boy did not develop sibling relationship with his younger half-brother. There were suspicions on possible hearing problems, but this information is false, the foster mother informs that the boy hears better than her, actually he hears very well. He has nightmares in the night, the boy might start crying without even being awake, then the foster mother goes to him, puts her arm on him and the boy calms down. The boy has a language delay – says words, but does not form sentences. He has good language comprehension, understands everything. Attends speech therapist. Attends mainstream kindergarten and behaves well there, follows the taught material, educators have no objections to his work. The boy is willing to help doing different chores, goes to a potty, has no enuresis problems. Adoptive parents should take into account that the boy slowly opens to others, but once the boy has accepted person, then it is for real and lastingly – if he loves, then loves to his full potential. If, for example, the boy does not get the toy he wants, then he can fall down and scream, get hysterical, but with a little cuddling he gets calm. The boy is bland and friendly with others. Comparing to what the boy used to be when placed in the foster family, he bit and would not listen adults, but now the boy has greatly progressed in all areas. The physician of the boy informs – that currently it is difficult to predict further development of the child in the future, possibly, by investing lots of efforts and love to improve the development of the child, there would not be any issues. The boy knows how to put puzzles on a tablet, he likes putting also ordinary puzzles, foster parents encourages the boy to draw to develop his small motor skills. The boy is very reasonable, recognizes digit 1, but if sees, for example, number 20, then knows that it is much more. Knows how does the cat, dog and cow says.

AndersonBoy, born January 2012
H-C
Anderson has spin bifida. He has had surgery when he was very young. Aside from that Anderson is continually makes progress.

He is an entertaining little guy who is always trying to do something new and fun. While he has had scooting mastered for quite awhile, he has recently begun to crawl, even pulling his knees forward separately, an impressive task considering his limited mobility. One day, he even tried to stand up in the middle of the pavilion when he saw his friends doing it. He wasn’t able to accomplish this task, but did scoot over for a hug like the other kiddos. He then held out his arms for one of his newly-walking friends and they laughed together as she fell towards him. Anderson is a social little guy and loves to play with his friends. One day, he even spent a good amount of time planting kisses on the cheeks of one of our newest little guys. Anderson can also identify all of his friends by name, and often calls out names as he sees people. He still loves to chatter, and much of it is unclear, but you can easily hear names and several other words. He is also great at repeating what you say to him and we have no doubt that he’ll soon be talking clearly. Of course, Anderson is not always happy, but even when he is upset, he entertains us. Sometimes, he offers a dramatic cry, where he throws himself on the floor and covers up his face. Other times, he simply tilts his head down and glares up at you. However, if you make the same face back at him, he can’t help but smile and is soon giggling. He loves to make people laugh; one day, one of the babies tooted. Anderson and a couple kids commented on this, and then Anderson started making tooting noises with his mouth! He has also been loving the new toys in the Life House. He can be seen laughing at the toddler mirror, pulling a toy train by the string, stacking big Lego blocks, or pulling his stool to the right spot to sit and watch a movie. Anderson is also a great helper; I was handing out nanny gifts one day, and he wanted to help. I gave him a gift and told him who to pass it to. He held it closely to his body as he scooted to the nanny. He is a great little guy with a lot of personality!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnnieDOB: 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.

Annie is 8 years old. Her 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.

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.

Sam ThomasBoy, born February 2009
H-C

Update Jan 2015:
Sam Thomas has had some developmental delays, but is making great progress in catching up to the other kids his age. He can still struggle to express himself, but his verbal skills are increasing every day and this seems to be helping him immensely. Sam Thomas knows many words in both his native language and English. He has had febrile seizures as well, although there have been no recent episodes. Sam Thomas has a slight deformity in one of his legs, but it is virtually unnoticeable and he is able to run around and play with his friends. Sam Thomas sometimes gets overwhelmed when his environment changes or when he gets too excited, but he is getting very good at self-regulating and requesting time alone in his room to settle down. He knows the names of everyone in his house and regularly attends English preschool, where he is making great progress.

Telvin can easily follow simple commands (go get the plate, etc), and can ask for what he needs. He received glasses for a vision impairment. Telvin is a very smart little guy who definitely knows what he likes!

JudyGirl, born October 2012
H-C

Judy is a sweet little girl. She appears to have some delays, possibly cerebral palsy, and does not currently have much muscle control. She cannot hold her head independently, but her control is improving. She cannot roll over, but can roll to her side. As her nutrition level increases, we are hopeful that this will improve. Judy loves to interact with those around her and will eagerly watch you until you pay attention to her. She has a great giggle and a precious laugh and is completely adorable!

Update Jan 2015:
Judy is a beautiful little girl. She appears to have some delays, likely cerebral palsy, and currently has limited muscle control. Although unable to do so for long amounts of time, Judy has made great strides in her ability to hold her head up. Her general core strength is also improving and when her trunk is somewhat supported, she can stay in an upright position for quite awhile. Judy does not roll over, but easily turns her head from side to side to observe the world around her. She always keeps a close eye on her nanny and will watch her from across the room. Judy seems very aware of familiar people and will often smile at those she sees. If she is not happy, she is quick to bring out her pouty lip. Judy will cry to be held and stops immediately if you pick her up. She is a petite little girl who has struggled with weight gain, but we are supplementing her diet with high calorie foods and she is starting to gain a little weight. She has also had a few periods of illness with a fever, but has not had any recent issues. Judy has a smile and a giggle that make many fall in love with her. Even though she cannot talk, her eyes and facial expressions communicate volumes!

From someone who met him:
Marv is a very sweet, happy boy. He loves to play soccer, even though his vision problems make that very difficult for him.

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 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.

Boy, born July 2006

 

This dear boy is listed as having “childhood autism” — if it is truly autism or autistic behaviors due to orphanage life and his other special needs, we really don’t know.

Boy, born December 2003
George is HIV+

 

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.”

Yelena 2013Guardian AngelGirl, Born June 2004

Yelena is HIV+.

 

What a beautiful, glowing smile Yelena has!  Beautiful blonde hair (all hidden under her kerchief).   She so badly wants a family of her own.

Recent families have visited with Yelena in country, and there are serious concerns about her behavior.   She has been observed with aggressive behaviors, and would do best in a family without younger children at home.  We have a missionary who met her, who is willing to chat with potential families.

Update late 2013:
Yelena is a beautiful girl, with brown hair.  She’s a very friendly girl but will need a family willing to work hard on her social and emotional behaviors.

Boy, Born May 30, 2001

Alex is a handsome young man who is already living in the mental institution. Despite this he has a wonderful, open, and affectionate personality. His medical records indicate congenital hydrocephaly, but he does not appear “hydrocephalic”. Alex is able to walk with assistance, and will truly blossom with family support and therapy.

From his medical records: severe grade of mental delay, congenital hydrocephaly, divergent/external squint, glaucoma, lower paraparesis, and flat foot

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.

Sweet Glenn is such a love! Despite multiple medical conditions he is doing pretty well!   He loves to hug and understands commands. His finger motor skills are not well developed. He can eat and use the bathroom independently. He is currently not speaking very much but it does not sound like he attends any speech therapy. He does need help changing his clothes but he is practicing!

This little guy could greatly use a family to help stimulate his speech and his fine motor skills.
