Lizzi Belle

Lizzi Belle (2)

Lizzi Belle (1)Girl, born August 2009
PRC
Intellectual delays, possible cerebral palsy, possible autism

LIsted: May 2014

Lizzi Belle was first thought to have Down syndrome, but that was not the case. However, she has very severe intellectual delays, possible CP, and possibly autism. Lizzi Belle cannot speak, cannot walk, is not toilet trained, and according to the nannies…”unable to communicate with the outside world”. A family for Lizzi must be willing to love her unconditionally, and care for her needs for many, many years to come. It is impossible to say what the future holds for Lizzi Belle, but it will certainly be brighter with a family to love her! This photo is an older photo, but the agency has a new video to share.

Quint

Jerry OCT formalBoy, born August 2011
H-C

Listed: Jan 22, 2014

Update Jan 2015:  Quint is an adorable little guy. He appears to have cerebral palsy and possible other delays. He can sit up on his own and scoots all over the place. Quint can stand unassisted and has recently started walking on his own. He is very proud of this new skill and practices it often, although scooting is still his primary choice. Quint tends to grab at anything he is close to, whether this is a toy, grass or someone else’s clothing. He will hold on tight, and sometimes put the object he finds in his mouth. Quint currently has trouble making eye contact, but he still loves to interact and play. He is non-verbal, but can often be heard making loud noises as he plays, by himself or with others. These noises are sometimes an expression of frustration and sometimes indicate joy. Quint loves to be tickled and get kisses!

Update Feb 2018:
Quint has become quite mobile and is very steady walking, sometimes even trying to run. He hasn’t figured out the pedals, but loves to scoot around on his tricycle. While he still puts everything in his mouth, he does know the difference between food and other things and will always take it back out if it’s not food. He is learning to feed himself and does pretty well with a fork and is getting better with a spoon. He also holds his own sippy cup. We have been working on using the toilet and he still urinated mostly in his diaper but has many bowel movements on the toilet. His problems with making eye contact have greatly improved and he has been able to make some strong connections and attachments. He loves to cuddle and hold hands. One thing he struggles with is sleeping through the night, which has gotten a little better since he started taking melatonin but he’s still a pretty early riser!

Even though he only has functional movement in one hand, he is able to maneuver his wheelchair independently.

He understands pretty much everything we say to him and can follow directions very well, though sometimes he chooses not to, like any boy his age! His favorite toys are balls, cars, books, and anything that lights up! If the house is quiet and he’s not competing for our attention, he can entertain himself for a couple hours with his toys and books. Carlton has learned and grown so much, we can only imagine the potential he would reach if given the full range of services he needs!

Artie was found abandoned at the hospital when he was almost 10 months old. He is listed as having a mental developmental delay, but his report also states that he is a lovely and smart child. Artie was 4 ½ at the last report and could count to 10, imitate drawing circles and lines and recite and sing poems and nursery rhymes. His language is noted to be delayed, but he is an outgoing little boy who gets along with other children and loves to be cuddled.

He loves all activity involving water and thus, loves the summertime. How wonderful it would be for Artie to have a water loving family who could take him swimming next summer!

Jory

Jory bikeJoryBoy, born July 2006
PRC
Spina Bifida (postoperative meningocele), postoperative right club foot, postoperative hernia (and one leg shorter than the other)

Listed: July 8, 2013

Jory was found abandoned beside the road at the age of 3 months. He has had corrective surgery to treat tethered spinal cord syndrome, meningocele and congenital cleft spine as well as right cross/club foot. He has normal intelligence. He likes to listen to music and sing. He likes playing with trucks, cars, and balls. His right leg is slightly shorter, but does not seem to impact him. He can walk, run, jump, and go up and down stairs well. He is currently in kindergarten and is doing well. He is patiently waiting for his family to find him.

UPDATE June 2016:  Jory is developing very well in all areas. He is able to express his feelings through words and art forms, especially drawing. He is very talented in drawing, and it is all self-taught! His drawings are full of details and stories, and his choice of colors and lines are amazing! Like most other boys of his age, superheroes are often the theme of his drawings. He loves his group home and his friends. He is caring, and able to stand up for himself when necessary. Academically, he excels at school. He knows a lot of Chinese characters and is able to read books with a little assistance. He knows how to use a dictionary, and he says he wants to make friends with his dictionary. He is very active and full of energy, even though he has to stay in bed because of a broken leg. He is eager to be able to walk and jump again. He is very humorous, and he enjoys making others laugh. He loves singing so much that he would sing along all the way on the school bus, which is a 45 minute ride! He also likes legos. He is fascinated with how things are made and how they work.

Jory has been watching his foster siblings and his friends getting adopted one after another, and he often wonders what would happen to him and if anyone would “pick” him. He says if he gets adopted, he would like to have mom and dad who are kind to him, who would bring him Legos, just like the other parents who adopted his foster brothers. It is hard for him, or any other waiting child, to truly understand that unconditional love means you don’t have to make an effort to be loved, you don’t need to earn your adoption and forever family. It is our hope that he can have a family of his own who will love him, cherish him, enjoy him, and show him what true love means.”

In talking to them, it sounds like Jory would greatly benefit from a comprehensive Spina Bifida team to look at all his problems and take an integrated approach. He needs good and consistent PT as well as custom braces, which are things not available to him currently. While Jory is able to walk despite having one significantly shorter leg, it is not safe for him to do so again until he is adopted and has these services/devices. His shorter leg has decreased bone density, so he has broken the leg once, hip once, and dislocated the hip once by walking. These injuries required three major orthopedic surgeries, and he has been on bedrest much of the last three years. The only benefit to this is that he has had private tutoring and is actually ahead of his peers academically!

Jory desperately needs a family to adopt him and help him get the medical care he needs so that he can walk again like he wishes to!

Zeke

-Zeke-Boy, born January 2010
H-C
Cerebral palsy

Zeke cannot sit and generally has very little control of his head, although he will lift it up occasionally. His overall muscle tone is low, but this has improved with therapy. Zeke cannot yet roll over, but can often be seen wiggling around and trying to accomplish this – if he can figure out what to do with his arm, he will be fine! Ezechiel is non-verbal, but expresses himself through happy noises or crying. He will likely require ongoing care his whole life.

From someone who works with him:  Zeke is such a happy little guy. He loves to sit outside and watch the leaves blow in the wind. His eyes light up each time he is given attention. He loves to be held and even more loves to be tickled. Zeke has the cutest little dimples and a beautiful smile that can melt any ones heart! He is always in a good mood and very rarely cries. Even though his name was given to him recently, he already response to it!  Zeke is a picky little guy and often requires special meals made for him as he doesn’t like what the other kids are having. He has only been here with us a short time, but has already touched many people’s lives. He is such a joy to be around and is loved dearly by his nannies, volunteers, and the other children!

Zeke has very little control of his muscles. We are hopeful that with the right therapy he will improve in these areas.

Update Feb 2018: Getting to know Zeke is like unlocking a vault of hidden treasures. We have learned that he was picky about his food because even though he can chew, it’s a lot of work for him and he didn’t like having to put that much effort into every meal. Now when his food is blended he’ll eat pretty much anything! We had been figuring out what he wants by facial expressions and body language but his new special education teacher made him a board with yes/no buttons to press. He’s not always in the mood for it, but much of the time he can communicate well with this tool. It takes a lot of effort and concentration but he does have control of the movements in his right hand. We’ve also learned that in all his time in school over the years he has learned his letters and numbers. We are excited to see how he can continue to progress! With his board he has told us he doesn’t like his physical therapists because they make him work hard, but I think he knows it is helping him because he still goes without fussing.
