Down syndrome, post-op congenital heart disease

Listed: April 29, 2015

What a little love muffin Curtis is! Curtis is diagnosed as having down syndrome and is post-op CHD-TOF (elsewhere in his file it mentions an ultrasound reported PFO, ASD, and PDA).

 

Curtis has typical delays for a child with down syndrome. He could distinguish the difference between strangers and those close to him at the age of 6 months. At 9 months he was rolling over and could clap his hands and use his hands to get his favorite toys. Shortly after Curtis3he was crawling and able to recognize his name and respond when called. He has been beginning to learn some simple words and trying to pronounce them. Curtis is gentle and cute. He likes to snuggle and receive hugs from his caretakers. He likes when others play with him and when he is happy he will shake hands with other children and kick his feet happily. Curtis gets along well with the other children and is good about sharing his toys. Could you be the lucky family that gets to snuggle with this little teddy bear? Please help us find a family for Curtis now so he can get home while he is still so young!

Jasmine

jasmine-2016Girl, born 2008Jasmine

Cerebral palsy

This is a very sweet girl. She is always happy with a friendly smile on her pretty face. She is very kind and quiet. She is very smart! She is ready for a family!!! She has a very good potential and needs help – family love and good medical care.

She VERY much wants a family!!

Listed: Dec 8, 2015

From a family who visited her July 2016:  “Yesterday we brought floor puzzles for various abilities to the groupa. They were a huge hit, most of the girls gathered on the carpet and they put them all together. Jasmine spied the box that had baby level puzzles, a total of 4 puzzles ranging from 2 pieces to 5 pieces. She asked my husband to cut the packaging but then she did everything else by herself! She slid out of her wheelchair to the carpet, opened the box, pulled out all the pieces, sorted them to the appropriate picture, and put them together starting with the 2 piece puzzle and working up to the 5 piece puzzle. Then she carefully put each puzzle back in the box, she was able to lift the puzzles up and place them down while keeping them intact! I am just blown away!!! Her fine motor was spot on, she has the best spatial reasoning out of all the girls I’ve seen, she chose to go in order smallest to largest and she figured out that there were 4 separate puzzles in the the box ENTIRELY ON HER OWN. None of the nannies explained any of this to her!!! She is such a bright girl, she needs a family to give her a future!   In her country, because of her physical disabilities, she was probably given the label “incapacitated” at around age 4. This means she won’t be able to vote, she won’t have the chance to have education, she will have no rights not even over her own life and when she ages out of this institution she will go to an adult mental institution.”

From a family that met her 6/16: I have never met a child who is so desperate to give and receive love. She is breaking my heart as we visit our child. She is ready for a family, she knows that she is missing something vital for life, if she could she would swim across the ocean to her family. Since that is not an option, I pray a family sees her soon and flies across an ocean to bring her home.

Update about her physical abilities: She is in a wheelchair, she propels it in her own style, sometimes using her feet to rotate swivel the chair around, sometime reaching across midline to use one arm on the opposite wheel, regardless, she seems to always get to where she wants to go! Her spasticity kicks in quickly when she is happy and excited, and she is happy much of the time! but she is able to take calming breaths and relax back down which is a great step. She can feed herself bread, drink from a mug, and likes lollipops. As mentioned above, I think with therapy and good home care with stretching she could potentially walk with braces and a walker. Her nannies adore her, the psychologist at her orphanage is begging for a family to commit to her, she is so intelligent and gets the concept of “family”, and there is a therapy room at the orphanage where I believe she gets some level of therapy. This could all change if she is transferred. I think she would take transitioning into a family in a stride. If she goes to a place without this level of care, her tendons could easily tighten to a point where contractures would limit her independence. I would hate to see that sparkle leave her face.

Aimey #1-28

Aimey_Nov 2015 Aimey2_Nov 2015Age: 13
Diagnosis: Osteochondrodysplasia (dwarfism)

Aimey has reduced fees through the agency.

After birth, Aimey was placed in an orphanage for children with brain damage and then transferred at age 4 to a notorious mental institution. She has lived her entire life in settings where she had no chance to develop her cognitive skills or any true life experiences simply because they looked at her medical diagnosis and assumed that she could not learn. The mental institution where she lived for over 10 years was recently closed and she is now living in a group home where she has the chance to attend school and learn life skills. As a result of all of the years of living in an inappropriate environment, Aimey is considered moderately delayed, though it is believed that the cognitive impairments are all a result of her environment. She now has a limited time to find a family before she will “age out” and be sent to an adult institution to live out the rest of her life.

Aimey moves around independently and walks on her own. She goes up and down stairs while holding on to the rails. She is not confident when throwing and catching a ball. The fine motor skills are developed, though they don’t correspond to the norms for the age. She aligns several blocks one next to the other. She tries to fit in figures by imitation. Her favorite toy is a form for sand. She memorizes after many repetitions and for a short time. Her thinking is specific and visual. Her notions and concepts are in the process of forming. She doesn’t recognize her colors and shapes. The emotional tone of the child is positive. She is well adapted in the group of children. She plays with the children and doesn’t seclude. She participates in group activities. She loves going to school. When she wants to establish a contact with an adult, she looks at them and persistently watches them for a long time, laughs, waives for “hello” and “bye”. She eats independently with a spoon and is not picky. She drinks from a cup on her own. She can undress independently but needs help for dressing. She is interactive and seeks attention from the adults.

Photos and videos from November 2015 are available through the agency.

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.

From a family who knows him, November 2016:  “Kayden was transferred to the institution last month. He is so full of sunshine and does not belong here! He still drinks from a bottle, but our team is trying to teach him to eat from a spoon. He can sit up, but does not crawl or walk. Kayden loves people and easily engages when we talk to him. He makes great eye contact and has the best little giggle. He is ticklish too! We are hoping and praying for a family to come take him out while he still has light in his eyes.”

Down syndrome / CHD (VSD)

Angel is an adorable little one who recently turned 3 years old! She came into care at about 6 months old, and was found to have Down syndrome, as well as a heart defect (VSD). Angel has been with a foster family since she arrived at the orphanage, and her development has been close to that of her peers.

Evan Paul

Evan RKBoy, born December 2011
PRC
meningocele, clubbed foot

Evan Paul will be 4 years old in December. He was found abandoned when he was just 3 days old. Evan Paul was born with a meningocele (where a sac of fluid protrudes through an opening in the baby’s back, but the spinal cord is not in this sac and there is usually little or no nerve damage), which was surgically corrected when he was one month old. He also had a hernia which was repaired at the same time. Evan Paul’s left foot is clubbed, but it doesn’t slow him down at all.

Evan Paul has good bowel and bladder control, has age-appropriate intellectual development, and is very attached to his foster family, including a foster sister. He loves candy, playing outside with cars, and being held.

Can Evan Paul be the son your family is looking for?

 

Gwen

Gwen 10-29-15 (5) resizedGirl, born 2013
PRC
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?

Kaley

KaleyGirl, born 2014
PRC
Congenital heart defect

Kaley will be two years old in January. She was left at the gate of the orphanage when she was one month old. She’s diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (atrial septal defect and leak in her tricuspid valve). When she was six weeks old, she underwent a procedure to have a heart valve dilated with a balloon. A US cardiologist who reviewed her file says that may be all she needs, or she may need surgery to repair the valve and the hole in the wall between the two top chambers of her heart. Recently, the orphanage reports that Kaley’s activities are restricted to non-strenuous ones and her lips are a little blue, so an adoptive family should anticipate that she will likely need some cardiac work in the future.

Kaley is walking and talking and is reported to have typical mental development. She is described as a gentle child who likes listening to music and sharing her toys with other children.

Kaley needs a family of her own. Can you be her mom?

Juliana

JulianaGirl, born December 2011
PRC
Down syndrome

Juliana is a playful, happy little girl who was born in December of 2011. She was diagnosed with Down syndrome upon admission to her orphanage. During her infancy, she was slow to adapt to her new environment in the orphanage, crying often and eating very little. With nurturing and care, her appetite and sleep improved. When her caregivers tease and tickle her, she would smile, wave her hands, and kick her feet in joy! When she was nine months old, she could turn her head to locate the direction of music and other sounds. She was able to sit independently in a chair at one year of age. Her caregivers describe her as introverted and she enjoys quietly watching her caregivers and peers. Her language skills, growth, and cognitive development are behind in comparison to peers of her same age. When her caregiver talks to her, she smiles sweetly and makes “ah ah” sounds! An update from 2014 indicates that her receptive and expressive language skills are limited to which she cannot understand words spoken to her and does not respond to verbal requests. She gets along with other children, though she seldom interacts with them. She is able to roll over and sit up by herself, and grab objects for a short period of time. She is in good health and we have a video on file of her playing and smiling!

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.

Mallory Photo 1 May 2016 - May 2016MalloryMallory was born in November 2014 and has Down Syndrome. Her congenital heart defect was surgically repaired in June 2015. She takes no medication and is doing well.

 

Mallory tracks with her eyes, recognizes her caretakers, and reacts when someone speaks to her. She can roll over in the playpen and is interested in toys. Mallory lets her needs be known by crying and fusses when things she wants are taken from her.

Update May 2016: Mallory’s doctor and caregivers are quite pleased with her development.  Mallory is very active, sits and stands independently, eats and plays well, and responds to her name.

The agency has video available.

Fallyn #1-19

Fallyn2 2015 Fallyn 2015Fallyn 2Girl, two years old
Turner syndrome, neuro-sensory disorder in hearing, Persisting anemia, suspected for minor thalassemia

The agency has many photos and video, from October 2015

Fallyn was raised by her birth mother for the first year of her life. Her birth mother is deaf and mute, and Fallyn was developmentally delayed upon entering the orphanage.

She has undergone multiple hospital and specialist visits since entering the orphanage in order to receive a proper diagnosis. An MRI was done to check for CP or other conditions and results came back normal. She was severely anemic and had other deficits in her blood work upon entering the orphanage. She was given iron and Vitamin D supplements until her blood work came back in the normal range. She was diagnosed with a neuro-sensory hearing loss in late 2014, but no intervention or follow-up has been done as of her most recent report. .

Fallyn can walk independently. She looks around in her environment, smiles when teased, follows what happens around her and observes children and adults. She understands the voice tone of the adults. She cheers up when paid attention, vivifies and shouts out. She cheers up when contacted by a child, touches them and smiles wide. She reacts with cry to pain. She can be upset for a short time.

She pronounces syllables (ba-ba, da-da, ta-ta), sounds and crowing sounds. She turns when called by her name. She shouts loud to attract attention and doesn’t stop until she gets what she wants. She has preference and linking to specific adults. She demonstrates cheerful emotion when seeing specific adults and is upset when they leave. She takes away toys form the hands of the other children. She interacts with the adults, seeks contact and attention but prefers to play alone and no one to invade her personal space. She reaches out, picks up a toy with both hands, transfers it from one hand to another, lifts it to her mouth and plays for a short time. She would shake it to produce sounds. She studies the toys for a long time from all sides. She prefers to play with her hands and touch them and her face. She claps with her hands. She has a favorite toy (a stuffed fox), holds it, “talks” to it and brings it up to her face. She eats with a spoon and drinks from an open cup.

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.

Tanner is a handsome boy who is 12 years old. He came to the center as a newborn. with a cleft lip and palate. Both have been repaired, and Tanner quickly learned to talk, and ask questions. Lots of questions. He had so much he wanted to know! Tanner is now a healthy, bright, typical boy. He loves to play with his friends, help out the nannies, and go to school. He is a very compassionate boy, and cares deeply for his friends. Tanner needs a family of his own. He will be a great son, and bring so much joy to your family!

Chelsea Qi

Chelsea Qi (3)Chelsea Qi (1)Girl, born 2006
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.

Andy

Andy, CHAC, 2_07Andy RKBoy, born 2007
PRC

Andy, age 8, was found abandoned when he was three months old. He was born with a meningocele and hydrocephalus, for which he received surgery when he was 9 months old. Other than a few scars, he’s in great health now. He has complete bowel and bladder control.

Andy has had a difficult road on his adoption journey. He visited the US for a few weeks in our Summer 2014 Bridge of Hope hosting program, and stayed with a host-only family in South Carolina. His host mom described him as “sweet as a kitten” and a “great, great happy kid” from the moment he wakes up each day. He was very affectionate, giving lots of hugs and kisses, and did everything asked of him. He loves to swim and got used to the family’s dogs. He also loved food—waffles, corn on the cob, watermelon, shrimp, and noodles—and even a July 4th hot dog. His host family found Andy to be strong, brave, kind and mature. He enjoyed family activities including long hikes, puzzles and math games and piano practice.

A family met Andy during his visit and decided to move forward with his adoption. Over the course of a year, they had several starts and stops on their adoption paperwork and just this week decided that they will adopt domestically instead.

We visited Andy in China at the end of June. He lives with a foster family, with whom he is very attached. He knew he was in the process of being adopted and several months ago his school had a celebration/farewell party for him in anticipation of his upcoming adoption. Now he will have to start school again in the fall, with no adoption prospects at present.

Andy is a laughing, funny, talkative boy who loves playing with other children and helping them. He’s also an entertainer who enjoys making people laugh. He really needs an adoptive family!

Jude’s core strength is already improving; he has a Bumbo seat that he loves to sit in and we are working with him to be able to sit up independently. Jude first learned to roll from his tummy to his back and is now working on rolling from his back to his tummy. While laying on his tummy, Jude can hold his head and shoulders up. While laying on his back, he loves to play with his hands and feet. He is a great sleeper and generally sleeps through the night, although he does not always take consistent naps.

Reba

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.

Before his first day of school, his nanny asked him what he liked most. He replied, “The happiest thing is to have a new bag, new folder, and new pencil!” Ellis has expressed his desire to have a family of his own, and looks forward to a life in a foreign country. He is a good “big brother” to the little ones at the orphanage. He enjoys playing with his friends at the orphanage and at school, and is a good helper to the orphanage staff. Ellis needs a family.

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.

Alan

Alan-update2Boy, born January 2010
PRC
Down syndrome

Alan just turned three years old, and although he can stand by himself and crawl all over the furniture, he is not quite yet able to walk. His foster father has been taking him on tricycle rides to strengthen his legs and improve his balance. Alan seems to be enjoying himself immensely!

Alan-update

Alan is speaking some family words such as “mama,”, “uncle,” and “sister” and is learning his colors and how to build a tower. Also, Alan can turn the pages of a book and is quite curious. Based on our reports, we can just imagine this handsome little guy snuggling on the lap of a mom or dad of his very own and read book after book. He will surely be a happy addition to some very lucky family!

Update 2014:
Alan has truly blossomed! He is very smart and also very clever! With his foster mother’s assistance he can count to ten; she is also teaching him colors and shapes. With his new found knowledge, Alan believes he is now a teacher and he can often be found teaching his younger foster sister a school lesson.

One of Alan’s favorite things to do is to play outside. Although he wishes to play outside everyday, he knows when it rains he has to stay inside and always lets his foster mother know this. Alan has great physical strength and he can run and jump. His favorite game to play is hide and seek. Alan is also a little ham and whenever the camera comes out, he will stop what he is doing and pose. He also has some pretty impressive dance moves. As soon as the music starts playing he will start dancing by shaking his hips.

Sunny is active, not afraid of strangers, friendly to anyone, smiles happily and attaches to you when being teased.

NEW PHOTO!  Stephen is such a treasure. We want a family for him so desperately. He is about the size of a 6 or 7 year old- just an itty bitty thing. The nannies say that he is blind, but we believe he can at least see shadows. He always wants to be near the window- especially on sunny days. There are two places you can usually find Stephen- either standing under the window at the end of the hall, or sitting on a chair in the kitchen, waiting for the next meal.

Stephen is extremely sensory-seeking and needs to feel the world around him. He loves to spin, flap his arms, spin some more, run, spin, you get the idea. He has absolutely no sensory input at the institution- so he has to create it himself.

He does not speak and displays many institutional behaviors. He is NOT harmful or aggressive to himself or others. He is absolutely adorable and has so.much.potential. He is more than a diagnosis.

The orphanage he is in is poor and rural. There will be nothing done for his sight unless he is adopted. Time is of the essence for this most precious boy.”

 

From a family who has met him many times:  “This little guy came to the institution at the beginning of last summer and we have seen him blossom under the care of a specially hired nanny. He is nonverbal, but he has the best laugh. He giggles and smiles very easily. The only time we hear him cry is when he is jealous that he doesn’t have his nanny’s full attention. He loves to be taken outside, and he loves to play with his mobile that hangs above his crib. He has a good appetite and is learning how to better eat by spoon instead of by bottle. He is slowly learning to hold his head up, but cannot sit or roll over, as he has had no therapy of any kind. He would absolutely thrive with the love of a family. He is pure sunshine!”

Nevil_2015Boy, age: 2 and a half
Special needs: congenital adrenal insufficiency (for which he undergoes maintenance therapy); muscular dystrophy Duschen-Becker (for which he has physical therapy, remedial gymnastics, etc.); bilateral cryptorchidism and delayed neuropsychological development.
He demonstrates interest in toys and plays with them for quite some time; reaches out his hands to a person he finds pleasant; rejoices when playing peekaboo; laughs aloud when jested; produces continuous random sound combinations.

When held, he keeps his head upright. He has more support in his legs. He sits only with steady support but not independently. He turns from back to stomach and vice versa; he turns in different directions when put on his back; he stands in a walker. He insistently gets to a toy that has attracted his attention. He prefers to play with hanging toys and rings that he studies with interest. With little help he can knock two blocks one against the other. He takes and holds in his hand a toy given to him but mainly shakes it. He is fed by an adult and drinks liquids given by an adult. He cheers to play of “peek-a-boo” and hiding. He doesn’t imitate sounds but pronounces accidental and long combinations of sounds.

Photos and videos from January 2015 along with a complete medical report are available through the agency.

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.

BoldenBoy, born Oct 2013
H-C

Bolden is an absolute sweetheart. He has hydrocephalus and so cannot hold his head up independently yet, although he loves to try when you help support him. Other than his gross motor delays, he seems to be developmentally on target. He loves to babble, clap his hands, nod his head, move his arms and legs and roll over. When you support his upper body, he loves to stand up and dance. Bolden has a great smile and laugh and is a blessing to care for.
