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!

What a sweetie!

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

Down syndrome

Listed April 3, 2013

Vance is a cute, outgoing boy, with a winning smile!  He loves to play outside – particularly swinging and playing soccer.   He enjoys drawing and playing with puzzles and bricks.

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.

From his medical records:  long-term effects of some early trauma (right-side hemiparesis), mild mental delays, seizures, flat feet, farsightedness

He has fine motor skills, understands everything, he talks but it is hard to understand him.  Nolan is very physically active, happy and cooperative, friends with other children.   A family living in the states who has 3 children, one who is significantly disabled, has taken a special interest in Nolan but cannot add Nolan to their own family due to the needs of their children. Per the family, “Nolan’s eyes and smile caught our heart. He is close in age to one of our own children. We hope this gift will enable someone to give Nolan the chance to live outside an institution.”

Carly

CarlyGirl, born November 2012
PRC
Down syndrome

Carly is a chubby little girl, who was quite relaxed and content when our staff visited her orphanage. She seemed perfectly happy on her nanny’s lap, and reached with curiosity for the things handed to her. She has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. An extroverted little girl, she’s not afraid of strangers, and loves to be held, but can also entertain herself playing in her crib. She isn’t speaking yet, but will say “ah” to communicate, and understands simple directions. When she sees other children eating, she’ll reach for her caregiver like she’s asking for food too. She can roll over, sit and crawl, and though our staff saw she can bear weight, she’s not motivated to stand or walk yet. She can feed herself finger foods and hold her bottle to drink, and cooperate when getting dressed. She loves colorful balls, and dancing along with music! We have many photos and videos of this cute little one!

There is a $4000 Child Grant that may be available to families through the agency.

Dorri

Down syndrome

Listed: August 16, 2016

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.

Video 2…. You can hear him say Mama and Baba in video can you imagine the disappointment he will feel if he ages out 🙁!!! https://vimeo.com/151409534

 

Elijah was found abandoned at the orphanage gate at five years old. On admission to the institute it was found that he suffered from cerebral palsy, was tested to have normal intelligence and was found to have weakened lower limbs. Although he tried, he could not walk, and he was given a wheelchair. He showed his strong will, and integrated into the group life in the institute. At the age of 7 years, he liked to play games with peers and share the toys with other children. He is polite to others, and always smiles at strangers who visit the orphanage.

He has received physical therapy at the institute, and after great diligence and perseverance on Elijah’s part, he can now walk slowly while holding onto handrails. In the institute, he is an obedient and sensible boy, and he is adored by the caretakers and medical staffs. The nannies and orphanage directors hope a family will chose him as he will make a wonderful addition to any family.

Hewitt

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.

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.”

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?

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.

Listed: December 3, 2015

From a family who met her in July 2016:  “Emmaline was sitting on the edge of the crowd, watching it all and taking everything in.  She is a quiet girl, but I get the feeling not a lot escapes her soft eyes.  She was the last one to swing her wheelchair around to Angelina.  Unlike the other girls, she did not give a quick hug, instead she took Angelina’s hands, looked in her eyes and gave an eloquent goodbye toast in her intentional way.  She wished Angelina all the best, she was so glad parents have come for her, she will be missed.

Angelina was ablaze with joy and beamed at Emmaline.  Emmaline tried to return the smile but her face faltered as she turned away and a small, quavering sob slipped out.  Oh I still hear that soft sound today, it spoke volumes about this little girl who acts older than her age.

Unlike the other children at her orphanage who only know the world around them, I think Emmaline is a dreamer who thinks of all the possibilities life could hold if she had a family.  Her imagination has given her wings to soar away from her body which tied to a wheelchair, but at night when she is untied and left in bed those tears born of hope and despair mingle together and soak her pillow.  She wipes those tears away with the edge of her sheet because no one is there to wipe them away for her.”

Very smart and so sweet

From a missionary who met him in 2016:  ” He’s a very sweet boy always helping others, pushing the boys in his home in their wheelchairs or making sure they are sitting up straight or helping his nannies with chores. Timmy had a brain tumor removed last year, there is a lot of medical info available to interested families. There is also $7000 in AGENCY grant money. Please share this video, in it he is interviewed and said his dream is to go to America and that he wishes to be adopted…”

Timon is a handsome boy who has overcome some amazing odds. When he first came into care he was dependent on others for help and care. Under the care of the center he became an independent and chatty boy who was doing so well. In Feb 2015, his caregivers noticed some irregularities in his gait and activity level. A CT scan showed enlarged ventricles and a tumor mass. He had emergency surgery for shunt placement and tumor removal. The surgeon believes all of the tumor was removed and it tested benign. Timon recovered slowly and has been able to become independent again in caring for himself, eating and talking. His speech remains slurred and slower but he is understandable. He is also back to being able to read and write. In early April 2015 Timon had a second surgery to place an external shunt to drain fluid from the area where the tumor was located and to allow for brain growth. The surgery went well and the plan is to remove the external shunt after 6- 12 months. While the long term effects of these surgeries is not fully known and further brain scans will be needed to monitor for any recurrence, Timon has proven himself to be a fighter. He has shown great courage in all his surgeries and therapies. He has shown great perseverance and commitment to doing well individually and in the therapies that have helped him recover after surgery.Timon is an overcomer and needs a family who sees his potential and can help him reach it. Are you the family that will help his light shine bright?

Harpo’s therapist feels generally positive about his development and believes he would make good progress with targeted, one on one interventions.

She would be a wonderful little girl and needs a mommy and daddy to help her to reach her full potential. I”m not sure why they put such words in files unless it means “delayed” or something to that capacity. She does go to the school outside the orphanage. She is currently living in a “family like” setting within the orphanage with three other girls and foster parents. She’s doing great!” From an Oct. 2013 update: Her speech is clear now.

She is a very sweet and kind girl and extremely needs a family.  She will be 5 this December, so any new family may commit to her and start preparing a dossier.

She has siblings, but none are available for adoption; 2 older sisters live with birth mother and 1 younger sister has been adopted.

From a family who met her in summer 2013:
She was in my kids’ groupa.  She is the sweetest little thing and needs out of there ASAP!!!  She has the most noble quiet nature about her.  She is mentally delayed but has so much potential.  She was one of the least favored children in the orphanage and she is desperate for love.  On one occasion she wandered over to the play shelter where we were playing and was trying to eat our daughter’s cookie.  We didn’t have any extra (we brought treats for the groupa every three days or so) so my husband just picked her up to distract her and as soon as he did, she threw her arms around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder just soaking in the attention.  I can’t bear the thought of her being transferred!  She already has it bad enough.

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.
