Because of her dislocated hip, she also have a curvature in her spine. Sometimes, in the winter Jeanne gets eczema on her hands and feet.

Jeanne is studying in school with her friends and is making excellent grades. She can speak Mandarin and she is able to fully express her wants and needs. Jeanne is overall just a great little girl. Her caregivers say that she is active, outgoing, and very helpful. Jeanne had an evaluation done by an advocacy group and they said that she was ahead of my friends in her learning and expressive abilities! Jeanne has been taught about adoption and she would love to find a family of her own!

Kellin

PRC
Blind/anophthalmia

Kellin is a beautiful baby who was in a foster care home for children with visual impairments for 10 months in 2012. He improved so much during that time, he went from being a weak, unhappy baby to being a fat, happy baby! He loves to be cuddled and loves to speak baby babble and play with his lips so that they make sounds, and he repeats words. He learned how to crawl and to stand and he started to walk holding hands with one of his ayis. Since he has been back at his orphanage, he has been very unhappy. Kellin cries all of the time and he does not receive the care and attention that he needs. He mostly lies in his crib all day and he cries. This is such a different baby to the boy when he was when he was in a loving foster home and we know that with the love and attention of a family, he will return to his happy, healthy self.

Miss Mirabel is also a real cutie!   What a great smile she has :)   Mirabel is 4 now and facing imminent transfer.   We’ve had many successful adoptions from this orphanage and region!  Please help us share Mirabel’s need for a forever family!  Mirabel will remain bedridden for the rest of us her life if she is not adopted.

 

Guardian Angel
From her medical records:  congenital malformation of the central nervous system, cerebral hernia, hydrocephaly subcompensated, flail legs
 

From one of our families who visited with her in August 2013:  ” We saw Mirabel this morning.  She is in the laying down room.  The nannies were carrying them outside.  She can’t hold her head up, support herself, sit, or stand.   It looks like she has no control over her legs at all…flopped to the side when the nannies carried her. She does, however, have good use of her arms.  She kept reaching up to try to touch me.  I gave her a set of the rings to play with.   She was SO happy to have something to play with. She kept smiling at me. I really think that there is a smart, aware little girl in that broken body.”

 

More photos available.  Married couples only.  Large families and older parents welcome.  Travel required.

Kamdyn #1-6

Kamdyn April 2013DOB: 2009
Diagnosis: Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome

Kamdyn has been registered for adoption for over 2 years, during which time her development has been followed closely. She continues to make significant developmental progress as her medical needs are addressed and corrected.

Kamdyn has Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome. She is affected by this syndrome in the following ways: She has an additional finger on her right hand; her uterus and right ovary has been removed; Hydronephrosis of the left kidney that has been surgically addressed and astigmatism. She is receiving excellent medical care and remains under the supervision of doctors to ensure that all her needs are addressed as they arise. The surgeon has recommended additional minor surgical procedures, but feels that this could best be done in the US and has recommended that a suitable adoptive family be found for the child in order for her final medical needs to be addressed.

Developmentally, Kamdyn continues to make progress in all areas of her development. She spent the first year of her life confined to a crib while her medical needs were addressed. Since then, she’s made rapid progress. She is walking, goes up/down stairs, climbs on play structures, runs and dances. Her fine motor skills are at age appropriate levels. She grabs with pincer-pliers grip; picks up petite objects, puts them in a bottle with a narrow opening and after that takes them out of it; builds a tower of 7-8 blocks and fits in rings and squares while adapting according to the form. She leafs through the pages of a book with hard covers. Her visual-motor coordination are also on target for her age (hand/eye, hand/hand, hand/eye/mouth). She imitates actions she’s told to copy, points to requested items, gives kisses when asked, finds hidden objects, enjoys “hide and seek” games, and plays appropriately with toys according to their function. She participates in organized activities with the group of children that she lives with. She exhibits leadership skills and appropriate social behaviors when interacting with other children. She stands up for herself and will say “no-no-no” to the other children if they try to “invade her space” or take things from her. She follows verbal directions and responds to her name. She can say several words and phrases. She waves “bye-bye” and blows kisses. She has a good attention span. She feeds herself and is learning to dress herself without assistance. Despite her kidney problems, she is in the process of potty training too.

Additional photos and videos of Kamdyn are available.

Ned

Ned (1) Ned (2)Boy, born 2003
PRC
Alopecia

Ned is a charming 10 year old boy who has been waiting for a long time for a family because of the relatively minor special need of hair loss! Ned was abandoned at the age of five and arrived at the orphanage in a malnourished state. He was very fearful of others and self-conscious about his hair loss. Ned was unwilling to interact with anyone at the orphanage, and when people tried to talk to him he would run away.

A teacher at the orphanage realized the cause of his anxiety and bought him a hat. The teachers praised Ned and told him he looked handsome and his confidence started to build almost immediately. Now Ned is 10 years old and he is lively and extroverted. He is of normal intelligence and attends the local school where he is hardworking and studies carefully. Ned loves going to school. He has a lot of friends there and gets on well with everyone.

His orphanage fee has been waived completely in the hope of finding him a family!

Finnigan

2011, Nov. 24th, FinnBoy, born November 2011
PRC
Congenital deformity of the right hand- 4 fingers; thumb missing; postoperative right hernia; right lower limb muscular tension.

Cute, friendly Finnigan was found when just a few months old. From his Oct. 2013 file: “Finnigan cannot talk but he can express his own need with the children words. For example, if he wants to drink water, he would yell at the mother and give a sign of drinking water. When he knows there are fruits in the refrigerator, he would point at it and yell at the mother. If he is full, he would shake the head and close the mouth. If he wants to watch TV, he would point at the TV and let the mother turn on TV. At present, Finnigan cannot walk independently. But he can support the floor with hands and move forward with the button. He moves very fast. At home, he likes to move around the room and observe the things in the curious eyes. When the foster mother fetches the clothes back to fold, he would imitate her to fold the clothes. He can distinguish the clothes correctly. At home, Finnigan likes to play with the young foster sister. He would cover the eyes of the foster sister to play hide-and-seek. They often giggle together. Finnigan likes to play outside. Finnigan is very generous. If there are some delicious foods or funny toys on the hands, he would share with little friends friendly. Although his hands are inconvenient, it does (not) affect him to hold or grasp some little objects. He can hold the peanut or grape with the index and middle fingers flexibly. He can imitate the adults to put on the clothes and shoes. But at present, he does not put on the clothes yet. Finnigan likes to imitate the father to read newspapers with the magnifying glass.”

She struggles with verbalization and her speech is not grammatically correct (possibly due to the hearing loss). She can count to 10.

Moira #429 OD

MoiraThis 4-year-old girl has congenital anomalies syndrome predominantly associated with short stature, strabismus, mild mental delay (mostly in terms of her speech development), hypotrophy. The child is in a very good general condition.

She engages in imitative play; eats independently; follows simple instructions; responds emotionally to interactions; runs very well; tries to pronounce her first words.

Moira’s current condition is very good. The suspicions of a congenital anomalies syndrome with short stature dropped since the child has started growing, without any growth hormones applied, and she will just turn out to be a petite girl. In this relation, the chromosome testing suggested in the child’s report is no longer considered necessary. The girl’s strabismus does not necessitate correction. The kidney issues she had in July 2013 are no longer present and that has been a temporary issue. As for the child’s mild mental delay, the director expressed the opinion it is related with the girl’s institutional upbringing and can be overcome.

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.

HallieGirl, born January 2004
PRC
Post op Congenital heart defect, Cognitive Delays

 

Hallie’s Chinese name implies that she came to the orphanage during the spring festival and that she will become a person of outstanding talent. We already think she is pretty special!

On May 30, 2005, Hallie was operated on for her heart condition. The surgery was successful.

Hallie attends kindergarten at the orphanage. At first, Hallie was a little bit shy, sat on her little chair and didn’t speak much. It was hard for her to adjust herself to the new group and environment, and to communicate with teachers and classmates. With help and encouragement from her teachers, Hallie is becoming more lively and active, willing to play with the other children and play outdoors. She also enjoys motor-development activities.

In November 2007, Hallie went to live with a foster family. She has received all possible care and love from her foster parents, sisters and brothers, and has healthy physical development. Hallie can eat by herself at home, put on her clothes and shoes by herself, and help adults placing chairs around the dining table. When her little sisters and brothers cry, she also acts like an adult to humor them. Hallie is good and kind by nature. Hallie is quiet, and loves music, books, games and toys, especially the cloth dolls. She is very sociable.

From a family who recently met her: “SWEET SWEET GIRL!!! She is a doll!! She totally understood our questions and answered accordingly…PRECIOUS!!”

Hallie has a $2000 agency grant available.

Specific mixed disorder of development, convergent squint, long-sighted astigmatism, farsightedness, functional systolic murmur, looseness in the ligaments of the ankle, foot outward curvature.

 

Update as of January 2013:
Doctor characterized Thea as very sweet, adorable and friendly little girl. Doctor noted that even if Thea was born on time and had normal weight, she arrived to the orphanage being extremely weak child and it took a lot of effort and time for orphanage’s specialists to normalize her development. At the moment, her development is much better and according to doctor the main difficulty that remains is her slower memory. In the doctor’s opinion, the slower memory doesn’t necessary indicate some kind of mental problem and if a girl would live in a family, she would probably make a much bigger progress than she does living in the orphanage. However, even living in the orphanage, her progress is visible. Thea’s memory and mental development is in the approximately same level as the mental development of other children of same age in the orphanage. But in comparison to children growing in the family, Thea’s development is slower.

Meet precious 4 year old, Keegan. When Keegan was a baby he was involved in an accident that resulted in his scalp, face and right hand/arm being severely burned. Some issues Keegan has include: the absence of most of his hair and missing fingers on his right hand. He has “nubbies.” He is also missing the outer right ear. Keegan has trouble closing his eyes and his nose has lost the sense of smell. While these issues seem large, they are manageable. Hats, sunscreen, garments, and masks can help Keegan with his burn injuries. Shriner’s in Cincinnati can help children with burn injuries at no out-of-pocket cost to the family.

He can help with holding his own bowl, goes to the bathroom on his own, and can climb a slide. Keegan is learning to count, sing children’s songs and say his ABC’s. He knows animals and sounds. He likes electronics, TV, DVD’s, CD’s, and the cell phone. He enjoys playing with other kids and is sad when they leave. He is affectionate with his foster mom.

He talks, answers questions and interacts appropriately with his peers. He attends school. He is listed as having some mild learning delays, though much of it can be attributed to his mild hearing loss and the fact that this issue is not addressed. Professionals who have met him indicate that he can hear when spoken to as long as the person speaks louder than normal.

Laurence

LaurenceLaurence 2Boy, born July 2001
PRC
Cerebral palsy, limb deformity

From his camp counselor- Laurence is the most loving, gracious, generous boy. The amazing thing about Laurence is that, for everything that has gone wrong in his life, you would never know it at all. Laurence is truly a happy boy and his happiness came from loving and caring for those around him as well as some of the simplest things in life (balloons, bubbles, singing… etc.). All said and done, he just wanted to love and be loved. His generosity and graciousness was so great as well to the point where sometimes it was even hard to believe. There was never a time where he didn’t thank me for every single little thing I did for him. In fact, my all –time favorite moment with Laurence was when he broke out in song while we were eating. I asked the translators what he was singing about and Laurence said it was a song just for me in thanks for all the times I carried him up the stairs. Needless to say, I couldn’t help but shed a tear at that moment. Another example of his generosity came when we gave him his first ever ice cream cone and all he wanted to do was share it with me out of thanks. The same thing happened with his first burger, popcorn, French fries… etc. Laurence’s favorite thing in all the world to do is sing. He is a great singer too! All Laurence wants more than anything in the world is a mom and a dad and multiple times he would mention it. In fact, my heart crumbled when I called him a week after he left, which also happened to be right before another surgery on his legs, and he asked me whether I had found parents for him yet or not. I know Laurence would bring nothing but a joy to any family who would take him in.

Nadia and Nancy (twins)

born August 2007
Both girls have been diagnosed with FAS, pyramidal insufficiency in legs, mental delay, and crossed eyes

URGENT!  NADIA and NANCY HAVE BEEN TRANSFERRED!!!

 

What a lovely little pair of pixies!  Nadia and Nancy are twins.  Please help us find them a family where they can grow up, together!

 

From a family who met them in 2012:

We saw them successfully feeding themselves borscht. They were sitting up properly and feeding themselves soup with a spoon. One walks and even runs a little stiff/awkwardly but they are absolute DOLLS! The other crawls and socializes.  They have deep auburn hair and dark hazel-ish eyes. They are both tall, lean, and long-limbed. One is a bit more shy than the other. Both are BORED and need music, hugs, kisses, and a mama and daddy! They loved our attention and carried around magazine pages. They are beautiful twin girls!!!Oh my heart!!!! My heart is breaking!  Someone will be blessed to be their parents!

From a family who met them in 2013:

Both girls are now walking! We hugged them a couple times. They are very sweet! They giggle and seem to speak in sentences (from what little Russian I understand). They have a teacher working with them to try and allow them to progress enough to be sent to a regular older child orphanage instead of an institution! They say mama and papa and smile and laugh when we come in each day. They feed themselves and I don’t think either one is in diapers.

Violet (L)

VioletGirl, born January 2009
Cognitive delays, delays in speech and language development, eye disorder, movment and positioning difficulty, FAS

At 3 years old, Violet had development typical for FAS. Pronounces words, understands and implements simple instructions, knows and shows objects in her environment, knows names of the children in her group. Her individual play is weak, likes rhythmical activities and dances.

Personal observation from someone who knows her:
Violet speaks in sentences; is in very high repetitive stage, sings songs, seeks for contact. She became very upset and misses a caregiver who left after six months; she had become attached to her, and her cognitive development started to go up. Can concentrate attention up to 20-30 minutes if she is played with and during the play communicates with the adult. She would do well in a family who may have an older child then Violet and who may become a play partner for her as well as whom she may copy and improve her development.

Violet wears glasses, she is careful about them and she takes care of them. She started to sing songs and she does this properly. She is delayed, but there is progress. She follows the rules in the group as well as when she is out. Wanted always to be with us, but of course the caregivers were limiting. She rocks sometimes just to pay the attention and when you come and stop her she usually smiles as she understands that she got what she wanted – attention. If after coming to stop her from rocking I would continue to communicate with her and would invite for the play – she would come and would stay with me and play the proposed activity for at least 15 minutes.

From a family who met her:
She is just precious and if we could have brought her home, we totally would have! She adored [my husband] and kept asking if I was her momma! Heartbreaking! She is such a sweetheart and would be a wonderful daughter! She wants a mommy and daddy so badly too! She would just sit in our laps and stare up at our faces and rub our cheeks! Precious! I love her. A lot! She does do some self stim rocking, but as we spent more time with her, we noticed that she did it to get attention and would do it if she wasn’t getting any. She is a little chatterbox too! So sweet! And sings! I forgot about her singing! I can’t stress how sweet this little one is! I really wish we could go back for her and it breaks my heart that we can’t!

Diagnosis: moderate mental delays & hyperkinetic disorder

Perry is on medication for the hyperkinetic disorder. His most recent update was in late 2012. At that time, he could sit up and crawls, but was not yet walking. He would hold toys and transfer them from hand to hand, but did not initiate purposeful play. He was making sounds, but not talking. He was eating from a spoon. At the age of 30 months, his development tested at the 11 month old level. In the video clip from April 2013, he is taking steps while holding on to 2 hands of the caregiver.

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.

Jeffrey can dress himself and can wash his hands on his own before meals. He knows big and small, outer and inner, can imitate drawing cross, can write numbers, and can recognize colors. At this time, he is attending a speech class for deaf children in the institute. Because he has not had proper educational training before, his teachers note that he has a lot to learn. However, they believe that he is a clever child and will be able to catch up if he studies hard. His teachers plan to send him to study in the Qiyin School to receive systematical study after one year of study for speech training in the institute.

Pepe

photoboyBoy, born 2006
CO-HSA
Mental delays, coming from an indigenous community.

 

As of this little boy’s report evaluation when he was five years and nine months old, he was thriving in his foster home with a foster mom and other children in that home unrelated to him. Pepe has been in this foster home since December of 2011 when he had lesions characterized as a form of erythema. Pepe belonged to an indigenous community but was removed because of his physical condition so that he could be available for adoption. Because of his indigenous background, this little boy will likely not be adopted within his country and for this reason is available for adoption internationally.

Pepe had 7 biological siblings but has not had any contact or relationship with them. This child was diagnosed with moderate mental delays and his report describes that his facial features resemble that of Down Syndrome. He was placed in adoption because he was being severely neglected and was in a poor physical state regarding his lack of good nutrition.

Pepe’s report from just before he turned 6 shows that he was at a low height and weight for his age and had poor communication skills. He is reported to have difficulty learning as characterized by his low concentration/attention abilities, low language ability, low expressive and comprehensive communication skills and delays in kinesthetic movement. He is reported to be easily confused by questions and does not answer questions at the level of other children his age.

Nevertheless, Pepe’s picture shows a very happy and engaging face. He reportedly loves animals and plays well with children who are younger than him. He also enjoys watching TV and playing ball, along with other fun activities that require movement. While frustration and inability to communicate can influence him to become aggressive at times, in general, Pepe is reported to be a very affectionate, caring, warm and good-natured little boy.

Photo available from the agency, for serious inquiries.

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. The agency anticipates they’ll have his file for 3-6 months.

Armando (4)Armando

This little guy is about six years old.  He was found abandoned in 2009 and police were unable to locate his family.

He’s been diagnosed with Down syndrome and is developmentally delayed.

He is described as a cute boy and he likes to play with his peers. He knows some simple words and understands and follows some instructions from adults. He needs a family who can provide him with the love and support he lacked in his early life.

Update June 2013:
Our family met this little guy in January 2012 & then again in January 2013. He is a sweetie. He is very independent and very mobile. I chased him all around the playground. He loved the games on our iPhone’s & enjoyed looking at pictures. He understands adults and is very loving. We were told he goes to a kindergarten school. He is super bright, a loves to laugh. He definitely has the stubborn, “I’m not done playing on your phone” attitude typical with our little DS lovies. He was very loving & really enjoyed our teenage girls & our younger boys. I think he would settle in easily into a family. This orphanage is very organized, structured and he is blessed to be there. BUT HE. NEEDS. A. FAMILY.

Cerebral Palsy

Natalie is a beautiful little girl who is 5 years old. She came into care when she was about 8 months old. Natalie’s motor skills were delayed, and she was diagnosed with CP. After living at the orphanage less than a year, she was moved to a CP Treatment Center. There, she received much needed PT and individual attention. After two years there, Natalie was able to take some steps assisted, speak fluent sentences, and express herself verbally.

That report was over a year ago, so we hope she has continued with her good progress! In some of her photos, Natalie appears to have strabismus (crossed eyes) that will need to be addressed when she comes home.

Natalie loves to play outdoors…her new family will need to be sure she has a swing set! Natalie is a sweet little girl, who has come so far already. Imagine what she could do with the love and support of her very own family!

They discovered a bulge on his back, and it was causing him pain. He also had some weakness of his lower legs. Tests showed he had TB, and it had spread to his spine. Treatment began immediately, and they repaired the damaged vertebrae with titanium mesh and plate. The pain was gone, the strength in his legs returned, and he was on his way! Erik will take the TB meds for a full year (finishing this fall), with a re-check every so often.

He is doing great now…he is active, normal intelligence, very verbal  very mischievous…and just a wonderful little boy! Erik would do well with siblings of all ages, and with his generous nature, will be a son to be proud of! Please open your heart to this little boy!

Sutter

SutterBoy, born Feb 1998

Sutter will turn 16 in FEB 2014.  A family must file specific paperwork PRIOR to his birthday, in order for him to be adopted.
Sutter is easygoing, organized

Sutter is a really smart boy. He likes to make puzzles and he can solve them really fast. His favorite game was copying a picture and rebuild it with little colored pins on a board with holes. If you try to fool him, he will say ‘no’ and start to laugh contagious. I’m sure that he would be able to participate in some kind of education.Sutter

 

He had several operations as a child, which improved his locomotion, but after his growth spurt he lost some of his mobility again. He tries to walk with crutches and he gets PT for it. With the right medical care I’m pretty sure he would be able to walk.

Some days he is really kind for the other children in his group and then he acts really helpful. Other moments he tries to get all the attention. He would do very well in a family, where he gets the attention he deserves.

Sutter becomes 15 this year. He needs a family committed to him before his 16th birthday, otherwise he will never be able to join a family, his chanced are gone then and then he is condemned to institution life for the rest of his life.

Additional photos and video available.  Married couples only, travel required.

In the hustle and activity of the 11 kids in his groupa, I had to stop and look for him because he’s not overly aggressive or assertive. Maybe a little on the shy side. But still friendly when approached (as far as we could tell.)  His eyes are beautiful.  Just a handsome little sweetie!! He needs a family!! He’s in a good orphanage that provides good medical care.  Such a sweet little boy.  He needs a family!!

Despite the deformities he can effectively use his limbs – he walks independently, goes up and down the stairs while holding onto the railing or an adult’s hand. His fine motor skills are not very well developed. He has good social and emotional skills. He sleeps good and has a good appetite. He likes to play with another children. He loves to play ball – he kicks a ball and throws the ball with both hands. During the school 2012/2013 he is a student in the preparatory class of the Primary school at the Home for Children with Physical Disabilities.

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.
