After admission she adapted to the group life quickly. She likes being praised, can get alone well with caretaker and children, sometimes can care younger brothers and sisters and can manage her life.Regina (2)

In late 2010 she entered preschool class. We design and make some projects for her. We find she is interested with colorful paper, she takes the colorful paper to roll and unfold repeatedly. She learns to use scissor to cut paper. She likes painting, use colorful pens to draw circles on balloon. She can put the toy blocks of the same color together which makes her can recognize color and make her fingers more flexible. Regina has had a great change in the preschool class, from an autistic child she grows up into a polite and helpful child.

After training (blow the balloon, tongue exercise and read Pinyin), she can speak “wo, wawa, mama, yao, buyao, hao”, can write some numbers and simple characters. Her limb ability is improved, she can ride a bike, can swing, can sit on the seesaw, recently he loves riding children’s bike. Once upon a time, they are singing together, she feel the student near her does not sing well and tells to stop singing. At the same time she is helpful boy, she can do what she can, can help the teacher to clean the classroom and pick up the toys together; in the dormitory she can help to fold the clothes. In the picnic, she can pull child’s hand positively and can have a bag with food on her back. Through picnic and community activity, she broads her vision and improves her sociability.

Nora

Girl, born 2006
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart disease (repaired)

Listed: April 2017

Nora is an amazing little girl. She was hosted in the US in the summer of 2016 by a family who hoped to adopt her but were denied — They are willing to talk with anyone interested in knowing more about this precious child.

Nora is very independent and cognitively very able. She was able to confidently take care of all her needs. She has extremely long hair that she did not like to have to brush, but was willing to have it braided to have it out of her way. She spoke very clearly in her native languate and was able to communicate her needs to her host family. She ate well and was very healthy. She adored the younger children in the family and wanted to help in caring for them. She enjoyed having jobs to do with the other children in the home. She liked to play outside and go on trips but she also loved to look at picture books and draw in notebooks. She loves animals. Nora did tend to get fairly grumpy when given sugar – so it is best to limit her intake. At times she would shake her head no and cry if she did not want to do something (like go to bed) but always chose to comply when her host parents repeated their direction.

She was examined by a pediatrician, dentist, and ophthalmologist while in the US. The pediatrician said she was very healthy and well taken care of. She also said Nora’s heart sounded very healthy. Nora does not need glasses but does have a few cavities that will need some treatment once she is adopted.

Nora would do very well in a family – she loves being with people, especially children. She adored her host dad in particular but also loved to snuggle with her host mom and their children. She is very bright and curious. She wants to learn and explore. She is a treasure just waiting to be claimed.

Johnas started fixing his stare and reacting to sounds when he was 2 and a half months old. He started sitting independently when he was one year and two months old.  The support of his legs and the control of his head have improved. He can turn from his back to his belly. He can stand and sit independently by holding on to the bars of his crib. He can hold toys in his hands and tries to clap.

Johnas maintains eye contact and recognizes faces, sounds and the tone of speech.  He is not interested in activities/objects for a long period of time. His emotions are appropriate (cry, laugh, agitation).  He laughs out loud when teased and will imitate and pronounce combinations of sounds and syllables. Johnas interacts with the children and does not prefer one staff member over another. He likes music, toys, and watches the way they move, and he eats pureed food with a spoon.

Donations will not be accepted until a family is found for him.

Zadock #

Zadock was raised by his birth family the first 5 months of his life and then placed in an orphanage. After being placed in the orphanage, he underwent heart surgery to repair multiple intra ventricular defects. His heart has been checked annually since his surgery and is healthy at this time. He has no other physical health complications.

Zadock is making progress with his development. He is currently living in a group home setting and attending preschool. He can walk and run independently. He climbs up/down on furniture and can go up/down stairs with minimal assistance. He imitates gestures and actions, responds with excitement when he sees familiar adults, and enjoys interacting with both adults and peers. He follows basic instructions. He can say some simple words and imitates sounds. He can work wooden puzzles with minimal assistance, and can stack blocks after watching someone do it first. He will roll a ball back and forth with a peer or adult. He eats from a spoon and sleeps well at night.

Lilly

Girl, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: June 2017

Every once in awhile you come across a file with the sweetest, heartfelt expressions written about a child. That’s what I found in the file of precious Lilly, who recently turned one. Lilly’s file said things like “She would smile sweetly, just like a little angel without wings,” “She is very cute and favorable,” and “When someone had fun with her, she will smile innocently. It showed that she is a girl with good personality.” It is clear this baby is not only sweet, but adored!

Lilly is a good eater and sleeper and she really likes taking baths. She loves to play in the water and kicking the water with her feet makes her squeal with excitement. Lilly was turning from side to side when her file was prepared and she is receiving physical therapy. The staff believes she is going to continue to surprise them. It is our hope that Lilly can come home to her family before her 2nd birthday!

Neli resides in Eastern Europe and is approaching 2-years-old.  Neli was born with facial asymmetry, low-set ears, shorter left lower limb, muscle hypotonia and significant delay in neurological and psychological development.  Neli needs assistance when sitting up and cannot stand as she lacks leg support.  She does not speak syllables or “coo” and appears to have partial conductive hearing loss.  

Neli can build towers with blocks and manipulate small objects with help. She cannot write but can throw a small ball.  Neli will makes sounds when spoken to and follow simple commands however, it is difficult for her to pronounce many sounds.  She enjoys being with people but is content by herself.  Neli establishes eye contact, demonstrates her discontent, responds to smiles and sounds, and accepts comfort from a staff member.

Larry #2-4

Larry collageBoy, age 4
Diagnosis: Down syndrome

Listed: July 25, 2016

Larry has Down syndrome and some of the typical delays that are common with his diagnosis. He is not yet walking independently, though his report indicates it is because he refuses to practice when he doesn’t want to! He plays with toys and enjoys the ones that play with music. When the staff attempts to work with him on fine motor skills, once he realizes it is ‘work”, he refuses to comply. He is not yet using words, but he IS communicating through non-verbal means. He needs a family that will bring him home and teach him appropriate communication skills and work with him on that all too common “Down syndrome stubborn streak” to help him continue to develop new skills.

Update: April 2017

Special needs: Down syndrome; 3rd-degree prematurity; a condition after 3rd-degree intraventricular hemorrhage; posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (the orphanage doctor reported that at this point there are no evidence of hydrocephalus); anemia of prematurity; congenital cardiac malformation – atrial septal defect – foramen ovale type and persistent arterial duct; hypotrophic; muscle hypotonia; delayed physical and neuropsychological development; underdeveloped speech;  severe mental delay

Larry moves around independently and purposefully by crawling, walking while holding onto something for support and while held by one or both hands. He goes up and down the stairs while holding onto something for support. He grabs and hands objects.

Larry orientates about familiar actions, including feeding, times for rest, going for a walk, etc. He performs different actions in the different rooms – bedroom, playroom, in accordance with the setting, the furniture and the purpose of the room. Due to his underdeveloped speech, Larry expresses himself mostly in emotional and tactile manner. He eats independently, at the table, and he drinks from a cup. While involved in emotional and tactile communication with an adult, Larry expresses his joy by laughing aloud and demonstrating that the respective action is pleasant to him and he wants it to be repeated. He produces some basic and not very diverse syllables. He follows some simple instructions that are related with everyday actions. He responds to being called by name.

The agency’s team met Charlotte! It never ceases to amaze me how different it is to write an advocacy post after you have met a child! Let me tell you about Charlotte now that we have met her and seen this cuteness in person!

Charlotte has Down syndrome and CHD. And she is the cutest, sweetest, silliest little girl you could hope to meet!

She is walking by herself and really aced all of our little developmental things we do with little ones. She scribbles and stacks blocks and she is all about the baby puffs! Believe me, she can grab them and get those things to her mouth no problem!

She understands simple commands, though her caregiver pointed out that she also likes to pick and choose which of those commands she actually follows. She is 2, after all.  There was a whole group of little ones in the room with her and the caregivers were singing little songs with them and doing hand motions. She was right in there doing the motions! So, so cute!

Charlotte has a $4,000 grant through her current agency. Please spread the word and let’s get this little one home!

Rhonda spent the first 4 years of her life extremely neglected in the home of her birth family. She was placed in foster care at age 4, where she has thrived. She has made rapid progress in all aspects of her development since being placed in the foster home. She is being raised in a bilingual family and can speak both languages. She started kindergarten and speech therapy in September 2017. She now speaks in 2-3 word sentences and her speech is clear. She feeds herself, and can properly use both a fork and spoon. She drinks from an open cup. She has established hygiene habits: she brushes her teeth, dresses and undresses alone, and uses the toilet independently. She likes to play with other children and she easily creates friendships. She likes to dance and to draw. She can sing songs that she’s learned in kindergarten. She recognizes and names animals, colors, and can count to 3. The team member that visited her to take photos and videos said that she was very polite and sweet. Her social worker believes that due to the rapid progress made in her foster home, she has the capacity to overcome the delays that she has as a result of her first 4 years of life.

Photos and videos from September 2017 are available through the agency.

B/c we only have her file for a short time, donations will not be able to be accepted until a family is found for her.

Sydney – esotropia; agenesis of the corpus callosum

Sydney and Reagan are precious twin girls born in February of 2016. Both girls were under the care of Love Without Boundaries’ healing home until just this month. They graduated and have moved into foster care sponsored by Love Without Boundaries.

Reagan is healthy and Sydney has more complex needs. Her file says esotropia and agenesis of the corpus callosum. She had a seizure when she was younger and was put on seizure meds. She has not had seizures since, but the medicine could be causing other problems. Sydney has significant delays and feeding issues. Reagan is now on target and doing well.

These beautiful girls need to be adopted together and need a family open to Sydney’s needs, including those unknown. Agency staff have met both Sydney and Reagan, and several pictures and videos are available. Please help us spread the word, as we know there is a wonderful family out there for this double blessing!

There is currently $14,000 in grants for their adoption with MAA, making the ‘agency fee’ portion just $2,000 total for both girls!

She could also feed herself biscuits. She can clap her hands. Mindey is shy and quiet. She likes watching children’s cartoon movies and is focused when watching TV. She likes being held and asks for hugs from familiar people and sweetly leans her head on her caretaker’s shoulder. She could pronounce simple sounds like Ahah and mama.

Justina

Girl, born 2002

spinal cord herniation of the lumbar spine; mild mental delay

An I600a must be filed by February 2018; otherwise she will age out and be unavailable for adoption.

It is hard to say if she wants to be adopted. Now she is close to age out and perhaps anybody could try to melt her fear. She is a very good girl with a good potential. She likes to dance in her wheel-chair, she participates in competitions. She is very active and a sports girl. She could participate in para-Olympic games.

I highly recommend her to a family living close to different activities to give her a chance to go in for sports.

This adorable sweet boy is doing well with his medication regime. He has weekly blood tests for the Thrombocytopenia. He takes meds twice a day for HIV. His levels are now normal and the virus is apparently undetectable. He has those blood tests every 2 wks. He likes swimming (he can swim underwater), building with blocks, and playing with cars. This child is naïve, very trusting, and has no fear of strangers. He is good with other kids, but timid & afraid of rough/big kids. There are no limitations on his activity due to his health. He can run, jump, and swim. He uses knee pads & a helmet when riding a bike in order to prevent injury. He is a gentle boy who use to cry often but he has gotten much better and more confident. He had some significant issues with decay in his front teeth; he saw the dentist in fall 2015 and had his teeth fixed.   Now that his teeth are no longer a source of constant infection, his platelet levels have dropped within normal range!

He lives with a foster mother who works very hard to prepare her foster children for adoption.

From a family that spent time with her:
She is just back from the hospital. She is quiet, well mannered, loving and affectionate girl that needs someone to love her. Her parents gave her up…. the other couple that was going to adopt her suddenly backed out… and she is one heart broken little girl. She waits for someone to come along and save her from “the system” that will fail her at 16 years old. By then, her options will be close to zero.

She just cracked both femurs when she was outside running and playing with the other kids. She is a huge favorite in this orphanage and with the doctor and they call her the crystal girl because she is so fragile. She is so sweet and kind, very loving and affectionate and wants a family really bad. She is well mannered and a girly girl that loves jewelry and girly stuff.

She is so, so beautiful!!

NEW PHOTO NOVEMBER 2016

Tyler has waited 14 years for the opportunity to have a family and he is now FINALLY registered for adoption. He needs a family that will look past his age and see all that this little boy can be under the guidance of a loving family.

Tyler has experienced many transitions in his young life. He was placed in an orphanage after birth, sent to a horrific mental institution at age 4, removed from those conditions and placed in a different orphanage at age 6 and then finally moved into a group home family style orphanage at age 7, where he still lives today. In the group home, he is learning daily living skills, basic academics and self-help skills. He eats from a spoon and is learning to feed himself proficiently. He loves water and enjoys playing in the bath tub. He likes to watch TV and to sit on the back patio and watch the dogs walking down the street and the cars passing by. He will call out to the dogs when he sees them. He also enjoys going for walks in the community. He enjoys playing with musical books and toys. He follows verbal directions and says a few one and two syllable words. He knows the difference between familiar people and strangers and enjoys receiving individualized attention from adults. A teacher comes to the group home to work with him and other children on educational goals.

UPDATE 2014:
This  joyful 11-y.o. boy is still waiting for his adoptive parents. He is a radiant and sociable child who loves interacting with adults. He also has preferred adults which is a significant indicator that the child is capable of forming a relationship of attachment.
