Down Syndrome, congenital cardiac malformation – atrium septum defect, left-right shunt – surgically corrected and strabismus.

Listed: September 2010

AGES OUT IN FEBRUARY 2017

A family must file the I-800A immigration application before her 16 th birthday

New pic February 2017!  

Update from Nov 2016:  Dawn walks with an unsteady gait. When going up stairs, she requires an adult to hold one hand and pull her arm to get her to take a step. She requires physical prompts to comply with verbal directions.  Dawn does not consistently respond to her name, and she does not make eye contact. She does not initiate contact with other children and rarely initiates contact with adults. She has auto aggressive behaviors: hits herself in the head and pokes her eyes.

Dawn does not have established skills to play. She will hold an object, but does not use it correctly.  She does not like bath time and has difficulty sleeping. She has significant tongue protrusion, which impacts feeding. She cannot feed herself and is not toilet trained.

Cautionary disclosure:  This child has numerous signs of Autism. She did not like being touched, the hand over hand “help” either.  She is running out of time to find a family, and she needs a family who is prepared and fully-equipped to care for her needs.  The agency has additional photos, videos and information for inquiring families.

*** Dawn has received a $15,000 Older Child Grant! ***

Calvin

Calvin CollageBoy, born May 2011
PRC
Blind

Beautiful Calvin was recently met by agency staff. Calvin is blind and is listed as having a Mongolian spot, which pretty much every child in his country has. He has been in foster care in the village inside the orphanage grounds since the end of 2013. Prior to that he was living in the countryside with a family. He goes to school in the orphanage, where he just started his 2nd year of ‘kindergarten.’ He loves to play games and play with toys he knows or is familiar with. He has normal hearing, but can’t see light unless it is very bright. He is not a picky eater- he’ll eat anything he is given. He is sensitive and might have some possible sensory issues- mostly related to his need. He is cautious about new things and change, ie: new classroom teacher. He can recite poems and say 2 and 3 word sentences. He could smell the snack that the teacher brought out for him. 🙂 He was able to follow directions and is a very calm/mild child. His caretakers said he is introverted. He was shy at first, but really started opening up more towards the end. He is kind, friendly, helpful, obedient and smiley. His mental abilities are normal.

There is a $4,000 agency grant for Calvin’s adoption with his current adoption agency.

She will be transferred in a couple weeks to a really bad place. Please help to pull her out from there!


Emma is going to be transferred into the school orphanage for mentally delayed children, and it is not the best place to anybody.
The orphanage may keep her only till summer 2016, and then she will be transferred!

She is much educationally delayed. She is pretty friendly and calm. But her memory is not good, and it is hard for her to remember any rhymes or poems.

This girl needs a patient family who will love her and care of her. She deserves it!

Emma Joy

emma-joyemma-joy2Girl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome
When Emma Joy first entered her orphanage she had a poor appetite so the caretakers needed to give her extra care by offering smaller meals more frequently. At the age of 1.5 years old she could sit on a bed and play with a toy alone and could walk anywhere in the room with a walker. At the time of her report she was 20 months old and able to understand what adults were saying to her. She could play hide-and-seek, say “mom,” and could express “goodbye” by waving her hands. She had a ready smile and her favorite activity was walking around in her walker. She was very curious and would look for other children playing. When the weather is nice caretakers took her outside to play. When she hears music she will stop whatever she is doing to figure out where it’s coming from. She enjoys music and wiggles her body to the rhythm.

Emma Joy can crawl on her hands and knees, pick up small objects with her fingers and scribble with a pen. When playing with blocks she was able to bang them together and put in and take out of a cup. She understood what “no” meant and could respond to others asking her for things. She was cooperative with dressing and fond of playing games.

Emma Joy was described as an active and cute little girl that all the caretakers love. Her favorite toys are dolls and a musical box.

Jack

Jack-2004 (2)Boy, born April 2004
PRC
bilateral cleft lip and palate – repaired; ear deformities and partial hearing loss

Listed: March 14, 2016
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.

Johann

Congenital Heart Defect (Tetralogy of fallot)

Johann is a handsome guy who is 4 years old! He was certainly a handsome boy when he was 1, and we can safely assume he is even more so today. His file was done in 2011, so the agency is trying to get an update as soon as possible. Johann was born with a heart defect; Tetralogy of Fallot which had not been addressed in 2011. He also had a megacolon, which appeared to resolve itself by the time he turned 1. At the time of his report, he was no longer having any problems with his colon. Johann at 1 was very social, very loving boy, and his overall development was good. Are you this sweet boy’s family?

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.

Wilkie

wilkie-2Boy, born 2011

Down syndrome, extra finger on his right hand

Listed: Dec 7, 2016

“Wilkie can understand the directions to finish the mission.” Now there is a gift! To understand directions, follow them through and finish the mission is a strong characteristic parents long for their children to develop and incorporate. Right up front, you need to know that Wilkie is an extra special kind of boy. He not only takes care of his daily needs, he helps the other children take care of theirs and he does it with great attention to tidiness and organization. He is keen on keeping things clean! He is well liked by his peer group and capable of keeping up with them. Although his expressive language is delayed he is able to communicate his needs and have them met. He is not currently learning any sign language but from his abilities he would likely be able to learn signing quickly and effectively if given the opportunity.

Wilkie likes to help care for the younger children. He has a nurturing, energetic and cheerful personality. His large motor skills and hand/eye coordination are impressive. You can see him joyfully catch, tap, and throw a balloon in the video linked below. https://youtu.be/hrHBwBSfc50

Wilkie also participated in the agency’s camp. He is a “perfect boy” according to his orphanage. He likes to wear nice clothing and is sweet, kind and patient. Wilkie thrived on attention from his advocate and the other campers; the team was completely smitten with him. He will not meet his full potential growing up in an institution. A family needs this child as much as he needs a family.

Eden is very happy and everyone gets along well with her. She is very close to her foster parents, and her favorite toys are dolls. She likes to sing and dance. Her file says that because of her ds she has slowed physical and intellectual development. She can use simple double syllable words like papa, mama, ah, yes, etc. At the end of the first part of her report: “We hope that she will live happy every day and her life is safe.”

Eden can go upstairs and downstairs without help, and jump off of the floor with both feet. She is imitating drawing crosses. She knows “big” and “small”. Eden can wash hands without help.

Update 2014:Eden
Eden is an adorable little girl who recently turned 5 years old! She came to the orphanage when she was just a few months old, and was found to have Down syndrome. Eden’s overall development has been good. She is living with a foster family within the orphanage along with 5 other children. Eden is very out-going, active, playful, and lovable. Her favorite cartoon is “Pleasant Sheep”, and she will sing and dance in front of the TV. Eden’s receptive speech is good, but her expressive speech is slow to develop. She can say some words, but is not yet able to make a short sentence. Eden is a loving little girl who needs a family!

Update Dec 2016:
Eden is in Oklahoma being hosted by a family who is advocating to find her forever family.  She is absolutely PURE JOY!! She is happy and witty and VERY vocal! She is such a good girl and is so well behaved!  She lights up the room with her smiles and giggles and fun-loving personality.

She is listed as Blind with a left foot deformity; she was assessed and they confirmed that she has no visual impairments but rather what they think is a visual processing disorder.

Listed: August 25, 2015

Chelsea Qi is a sweet girl with a kind spirit. It is rare to see her without a huge smile on her face. When first meeting her she may come across as shy or reserved but she warms up very quickly!

Chelsea loves to color and craft time was her favorite activity at camp. She could sit for hours coloring, making beaded necklaces or filling in her memory book. Chelsea has a beautiful voice and really enjoys singing! She knows a lot of Chinese songs and even a few songs in English! She really enjoyed our assembly time where we would sing some crazy camp songs and dance. She even sang a song all by herself during the end of week Talent Show. Swimming time was another highlight of the week for her, she loved getting to splash around in the pool and play with the blow up balls. All morning she would ask if it was time to go swimming yet!

Chelsea does have some special needs but her biggest need of all is a family that will love and help her to succeed in life. We have seen what small interventions can do for her development and with proper support and therapies we have no doubt she can continue to thrive! She used to live in a great foster home but had to return to her home orphanage in February 2015. We know she greatly misses her friends and nannies as the situation in her current orphanage isn’t ideal.

From a family that spent time with him 9/15:  This little guy is so fun! I spent loads of time with him because he was in the same summer groupa as my daughter that we are bringing home this September. He was always up for hugs and snuggles and pictures. His needs seemed very mild. He seems to have have a slight mental delay and strabismus but I could not see any other special needs. His motor skills seemed to be exactly on cue for a 6 year old boy. He was full of excitement and imagination and loads of energy. What a sweet little blond haired darling treasure! He is in the same school as Charlie, Rebecca, Wetherbee, and Toby. Please somebody bring him home fast! What a darling!

Internal hydrocephalus (operated), spastic tetraparesis with movement disorders, open oval window, development delays

VIDEO:  https://goo.gl/photos/Sdw2Gk8qf9n2rYcC9

From a family who met her summer 2015:  This little girl is wonderful! I have never met a child with so much personality and spunk. She absolutely loves people and she is so desperate for attention. I held her for most of our visitation time one day. If I tried to put her down she demanded that I pick her up again and then she would kiss all over me. She just wanted someone to be near her. Everyday when my husband would walk through the playground gates she would get a stern look on her face and point at him and then motion for him to come to her… NOW:) She would smile from ear to ear when he acknowledged her. You can not help but laugh when you are with her. Even the cold and distant nannies couldn’t keep a solemn expression on their faces when we interacted with her.

She is in need of urgent dental care! I have never seen such decayed teeth before. I am not sure why her mouth is so much worse than all the other children but her mouth is really concerning. She can stand on her own but struggles to lift and bend her legs when she is bearing weight on them. She has a little walker that she does wonderful with. She can walk along a bench by holding on to it but we never saw her walk independently. From what I could tell she does not have any limitations of her upper body.

We never witnessed her show any aggression towards any of the children. When I would sit on the bench holding my daughter she would try to climb in my lap as well, but she never tried to harm my daughter or push her out of the way. She is very hungry for attention and for the love of a family. She would make a wonderful daughter and I am sure she would provide you with a life time of laughter.

This child has significant facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).  This is a cautionary disclosure only.  Families should research the varying impacts of this condition.

Vance has a significant speech delay, but interacts with others using gestures and expresses himself well.

Update October 2016:  paperwork being fixed!

From a family who met him in late 2016:  As is sometimes an issue for older children, Vance would probably be best suited in a family without young children.  He will greatly benefit from one on one focus in an experienced adoptive family.  He deserves life outside an institution where he can grow and learn appropriate social behaviors from typical peers and siblings.

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.

Hydrocephalus, Dandy-Walker Syndrome, post-operative meningoencephalocele, post-operative peritoneal shunt of arachnoid cysts

Handsome Hewitt is a sweet little boy who needs a family willing to look past all the labels he’s been given and see him for the precious little boy he is and the wonderful son he will be. Hewitt can sort objects by color, follow directions, make great eye contact and conversation, and draw quite well. He is clearly a happy little guy with a sweet and gentle personality. Hewitt is from a very good orphanage and he is living with a foster family on the grounds of the orphanage. Hewitt loves to play and sing!

Hewitt is diagnosed as having hydrocephalus and Dandy Walker syndrome and is postoperative for a meningoencephalocele and postoperative for a peritoneal shunt due to arachnoid cysts.

Hosted in February 2016 – His host mama says:
Tristan is a precious little boy with a lot of energy. He loves being with people and for the most part is gentle and kind to other children. He really desires to please and loves to help around the house. He enjoys playing outside and wants desperately to learn how to ride a bike. He likes to listen to music. He has fun trying English words and cracks up when google translate translates his Chinese into silly things. He is very responsive to love and attention and is an intuitive little boy.

Tristan has adjusted well. Initially he stuck pretty close to me but has bonded more with host dad in the last week. He’s also been having a lot of fun playing with our children. The three of them were dancing to music tonight. He and our daughter made up some hand motions to one of the songs. He also enjoys playing with the baby (age almost 2) and is very gentle with her. He really looks up to our older girls (ages 10 and 12) and loves when they read to him or spend time playing with him.

On Saturday he found a children’s worship cd and has been listening to it over and over. He has played it as he’s fallen asleep every night since then. Tonight we caught him on video singing along with pretty decent English.

We took him swimming with friends…he really enjoyed that. He went to church with us and wasn’t so sure about it the first week. This past week he did much better, although it’s still hard on him to be around so many different people who all want to say hello to him. He gets pretty silly and sticks very close to us.

He has participated in our homeschool…he loves to water color, cut paper, glue, and paint. We’ve also been able to “read” several books to him through google translate…we discovered you can take a picture of the words and it will translate! Very fun! He enjoys that a lot. We’ve gone to the park, played in our back yard (he loves it out there), ridden bikes together, and gone for family walks. Tristan does very well with a predictable schedule and does struggle when things are different than the norm. He really likes it when we are all together. He eats pretty much anything we give him, although he didn’t want to touch oatmeal the first time we served it. He did like it the second time. He especially LOVES eggs, apples, and carrots .

The first week and a half that Tristan was with us, he struggled any time we needed to say no to him…especially in the afternoons. He was having melt downs almost daily. We would simply hold him until he calmed down and was willing to listen. He did get pretty worked up several times and tried to bite, scratch, and throw his head back. As he has settled into our home, these met downs have occurred less and less. He didn’t have any melt downs over the weekend even though our schedule was different than the norm and things were busier. He has been much quicker to listen and to say sorry when we ask him to.

Tristan is a very sweet little boy. He’s very active and likes to be outside a lot. He’s gentle with other children for the most part and loves to be silly. He likes to be held and loves to snuggle. We’ve all fallen in love with him in the short time he’s been with us.

Congenital heart defect

Gwen is a two year old cutie! She was abandoned when she was only one month old and was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, a common heart defect that comprises 4 separate abnormalities. Gwen had surgery at one month old that successfully repaired 3 of the 4 defects. According to a US cardiologist who reviewed her file, Gwen may need a balloon procedure or even open heart surgery to address the remaining defect (a narrowed artery) at some point in the future, although the orphanage believes her cardiac issues are resolved.

Gwen also has inverted eyelashes (epiblepharon) which is not uncommon in children of Asian descent. This means she has an extra horizontal fold of skin near her eyelid which causes the lashes to be directed towards her eye and can cause irritation of the cornea. Some children grow out of this condition while others may need minor surgery to rotate the eyelashes outward.

Gwen is now able to eat, walk and run independently. Her intellectual development is comparable to her peers. She’s a little shy and doesn’t say much in front of strangers. Gwen is described as a helper who loves being cuddled by caretakers. Could this sweet girl be your daughter?

He changed 3 orphanages already and this summer he will be transferred again because of his school age; he is scheduled to be transferred before school starts in September. Where is he going is NOT good! He needs OUT!! He is a very good and friendly boy and needs a family asap!

From a family who met Cody spring 2014:  we were able to spend a good amount of time with him. He was delightful! He loved holding our hands when we went for walks outside, and he loved playing ball with my husband. He seemed healthy, smart, well-behaved, and kind to the other kids. We often saw him acting kind of like a big brother, helping some of the others with things like zipping their jackets. I think he would do great in a family with other kids. We were sad to say goodbye to him, and he asked us when his mom and dad were coming.
