File lists Symphysodactylia (not mentioned in the file, but she is thought to have Apert Syndrome)

Listed: March 2015

Mikayla is a five year old full of personality and energy. This little lady knows what she wants and loves to have her photo taken and likes to use money to buy things by herself. She is described as active and outgoing and always has a smile ready for anyone around, just in case they might have a camera. She also likes dogs and playing outdoors.

Between 7-9 months she mastered crawling, could make single syllable sound like dad and mom, reach out for objects, and knew when her name was called. During her 10-12 months she could stand by herself then learned to walk alone for a few steps, she was also able to wave bye-bye, point to an object she wanted, sneak open a cabinet to find something she wanted and throw it playfully.

By two she could walk on her own and began to feed herself with a spoon. She was trying more independent tasks like taking off her shoes and socks and going to the toilet by herself. She also began to speak some simple words. Growing more independent at 3 years old, she likes to mimic the adults by helping to sweep the floors and can go upstairs and downstairs.

Mikayla lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with her little foster brother (Milo) with whom she is very close and adores. It would be wonderful if she and Milo could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

Down syndrome, Post-op CHD

Esther is an outgoing little girl who filled the room with her own high-energy sunshine when our staff saw her on a trip. Everything she saw delighted her- the giant rolling balls, brightly colored pipe cleaners, blocks to stack. She has Down syndrome, and seems to have good motor skills; she can run and jump, but her verbal skills are currently limited to “mama,” “baba,” and some expressive syllables. However she will also use gestures to express herself, and understand directions from her nannies.

This curious little girl likes playing on the playground and enjoys all sorts of toys. Her nanny told our staff she’s very good at imitating what others around her are doing. When they sit down to rest, she will pat their backs, and if other children are crying, she will comfort them with a cuddle. Her self-care skills are good, she can feed and dress herself. She has had surgery for a heart condition, and the doctor with our staff didn’t hear any murmurs.

From an adoption advocate who met him summer 2013:
I met this 6 year old boy with CHD. This little guy had so much energy and was ALL BOY running around and playing and showing off for us. I was alone in a stairwell with him and nearly fainted when he jumped from the halfway point on a flight of stairs to beat me to the bottom! I tried to scold him but he gave me one of those smiles that led me to believe he was gonna do it again on the next flight…yep… This little guy is so full of life and just adorable!!! I imagine he keeps his foster mother on her toes! He was very curious about us and followed us all over the orphanage building.

Rhiannon

Girl, born 2012
PRC
Down syndrome, CHD (Congenital heart defect)

An update from 2016: Rhiannon is a quiet, tiny girl, who appears quite small for her age, and very thin. She has a heart condition, which she has not had surgery for. The nannies say she eats a normal amount, so they are not sure why she’s so thin. When agency staff visited in April 2016, she sat up very stably and was alert, frequently nodding her head and rocking. Caregivers say she doesn’t often reach for toys, but she will react when the nannies make faces or tickle her. She can stand up with support from her nanny under her hands. In the baby walker she can move around very quickly! She will scoot around on her bottom as well to get around, but doesn’t crawl yet. So far she’s not babbling, just making sounds. She does turn to sounds as well.

Landon

Boy, born 2013
PRC
Blind

Landon is an amazing boy who came to a special home for the Blind in December of 2016. Landon had made so much progress with consistent love and care, but he was recalled to his orphanage this past December. When his nanny took him back to his orphanage, they told her they didn’t even have a bed for him.  Staff went back the next day and donated his bed from their care center. They also recently visited him in the orphanage and reported: “It’s clear the staff is doing their best, but is very overwhelmed. In his room there are 9 children with just one nanny caring for them and one toy to share. When we first saw Landon, he was very distant and refused to even say our names. Even with his new nannies, he was much quieter and cold than he usually was… I can only imagine what’s going on in his little mind. I held him in my arms and sang to him and, even though he refused to sing songs that we used to sing together, he seemed calm and happy. We played for a while and when I gave him a piggy back ride, our old Landon came back to us. He was calling out “go” and “faster” in English and was calling our names again, with a big smile on his face. Leaving him hurt, especially because he started asking to go home with us. Landon needs the love and support of a family now more than ever.”

When Landon first arrived at the home, he had struggled with transitions and always demanded to be held. However, he was able to work with a wonderful occupational therapist that helped him and he made great improvements. He still loves hugs, to snuggle, and is the biggest fan of piggy back rides! He especially loves singing and enjoys singing English songs like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “BINGO.” He was in our English immersion classroom and has a strong foundation in English to express himself. Thanks to having American volunteers providing an English immersion environment, he can say the days of the week, say left or right, use manners, and express his basic needs in English. His file lists him to have nystagmus and esotropia. Landon had been making big improvements in his orientation and mobility classes. He had also been making wonderful progress with his cane. Make sure to watch his videos and see him speak English and use his cane skills! Landon finds music to be very soothing. He loves when you sing to him while holding him in your arms and when you run your hands through his hair. You can feel how much he just wants to be loved!

Down syndrome

This is sweet and silly Jolie. Jolie loves to watch cartoons, but her favorite thing to do is to play outside. It is estimated that she was born in March 2013. Jolie has some developmental delays related to Down syndrome. But she doesn’t let that slow her down. Jolie is described as active, lively and restless. She walks and runs just like other four year olds. She also navigates stairs on her own and climbs all over the furniture at home. Jolie can follow simple directions, such as “bring that ball over here”. She speaks simple words such as mama, baba (dad), gege (big brother), and chichi (eat). She also knows how to communicate her needs and desires. For example, if her foster father is going for a ride on his scooter, she will stand in front of it so that he knows she wants to go with him.
