In the care of these loving organizations he has made some progress in his physical strength and development, but he is still severely delayed. Alec can sit up and can make eye contact, but he is not interested in toys. Alec loves being held and responds to tickles and cuddles. He currently does not attempt to communicate verbally but he laughs and coos. Alec also has feeding issues. Alec needs the unconditional love of a family devoted to give him access to all the therapies and early intervention services that he needs to reach his full potential.

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!

Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Kent is an adorable baby boy who is just 1 year old! He came into care when he was 4 months old, and they began working with him immediately to strengthen his muscles. Kent has Down syndrome, and a VSD (6mm) with left atrium enlargement. He may require a surgical procedure to plug the ASD. Kent’s development is delayed, as would be expected. When he turned 1 year old, he was not yet sitting alone, or crawling. He will need more time, and attention, before he masters these milestones.

Kent is a precious baby boy. He is very alert, and very engaging. His receptive language is very good, and he is beginning to make sounds to communicate with the nannies. His favorite activity is listening to music and being hugged. I cannot argue with that! Kent needs a family to love him, and help him reach his full potential. This sweet boy is waiting for you!

Xander

Xander 3XanderBoy, born March 2005
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: April 20, 2013

Xander was found abandoned at 6 yrs old, he’s an active child, running and chasing in the rooms all around, he was even running to go upstairs, however he never did that again after teacher’s criticism so that we could see he’s an obedient child. At the age of 6 years and 7 months, Xander did well in all aspects of taking care of himself: he eats food himself, washes the dishes after meal and takes shower, puts on clothes, socks and shoes, goes to washroom and occasionally he helps caretaker to do works within his abilities. At the age of 6 years and 1 month: he is active, restless and unquiet, able to greet familiar people and call “teacher, aunt, uncle, brother, sister”, he’s really naughty and played on class, he didn’t like to be restricted, playing is the nature for boys, however the teacher demanded him to keep classroom discipline and he couldn’t affect other kids, he’s acceptable to teacher’s words. At the age of 6 years 7 months, Xander behaved well on classes and he was praised many times by teacher, however his expression ability was not good enough and couldn’t express himself with whole sentences, so most of the time he needed the gestures, teacher said he had made big improvements, we trust he would express himself fluently and naturally.

Tuberos Sclerosis — Congenital Bourneville-Pringle Syndrome

Amelia likes to dance, listen to stories, read picture books, and play hide-and-seek. She came into care around 8 months of age and was sponsored by Half the Sky Foundation’s nurturing program for infants. At 9 months, she could sit steadily alone for a few minutes, grab her feet with her hands, and hold her hands up to be held. At one year of age, she could hold toys and stand when leaning on objects. She enjoyed sitting and rocking on the wooden horse. At 15 months, she was more outgoing and could stand for a long time when holding onto a support. She could grasp toys nearby and she could walk slowly with assistance. When it was time to take a nap, she would shake her head “no.” She could pick up objects with her thumb and index fingers.

Her condition became more serious in 2009, and we hope to see her come home soon so that she can receive the best medical treatment for her condition. Her caregivers exercise her daily to improve her symptoms, and say that “she has already taken the first step in life and will do better in the future.”

Hanson is an extroverted boy who is 10 years old.  He was found on a staircase at the subway station when he was 4 years old. His limb and intelligence development is delayed compared to peers, but his motor skills have improved with 2 years of post-operative rehabilitation.

Zach

Zach (3) Zach (4)Boy, born July 2008
PRC
Zach is an adorable boy diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy. His limb, intelligence, and language development is delayed compared to peers.

Zach had some new medical testing done and the results indicate that it may be likely that he has Progressive Muscular Dystrophy and not Cerebral Palsy.  A family should be prepared for that probable diagnosis.

Listed: March 13, 2013

From Zach’s host family (hosted December 2014)
Zach is a lovely 6-year-old boy and an absolute delight. He has a joyful and cheerful disposition, a sweet spirit, and an infectious smile. He is smart and resourceful in his interactions and playing. He enjoys playing with cars, dolls and animals, flying helicopters, and almost any mechanical objects. He enjoys playing pretend games, like pulling pretend luggage around the house and pretending to cook and serve us with play food, plates, cups, saucers, etc. He loves music and often sings as he goes about his day, and he’s been enjoying learning to play his new harmonica. He interacts well with other children: in our case with our 7- and 8-year-old daughters. He also has a good memory and surprised us by quickly learning things like where all of our dishes go and where we turn to get to our house. He has adapted so well to life in a family, and loves the bedtime rituals of bathing, brushing teeth, getting into his pajamas, and reading; but he also has an endearing habit of making sure the proper lights are turned off, doors are locked where they need to be, etc. He clearly is proud to show he can take on big-kid responsibilities. Zach has to work harder than most children to climb up steps and to get himself up off the floor. But he does navigate steps well, though he needs a boost at times getting into vans or other high places. In December, he was still able to walk normally, except that he has to be more careful than other kids in negotiating uneven surfaces, and steps. He doesn’t let this slow him down or limit his activities. On playgrounds, even with many unfamiliar children, he is not inhibited about climbing the equipment and riding down slides. He accepts help sometimes from us or from our children; other times he wants to show that he can do things alone even if it is harder for him. Zach can sometimes act like a much younger boy. He has a strong stubborn streak, which will sometimes manifest itself in a tantrum. Those tantrums did lessen over the weeks, however. He also enjoys being held, cuddled, and paid attention to and will come and say “Mama bao bao” when he wants to be picked up and carried. As our 7-year-old (without prompting from us) wrote in her journal, “Zach is the best boy I have ever met. He is cheerful and happy.” The medical evaluations we were able to do point to significant medical challenges ahead for Zach, and he will need a loving family to support him through those and ensure that he has the best care possible. Zach loves being a part of a family and will be a blessing and joy for whomever is lucky enough to adopt him.

PRC

Listed: Feb 22, 2013

Colby is a precious boy who has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (Congenital Heart Defect). From observation, the heart condition has no obvious affect on daily life.

Colby is active, extroverted, and smiles often. When Colby hears music on the radio, he dances with joy. He does well in dance class and has a good sense of rhythm. Colby also enjoys playing games with other children and likes to watch cartoons.

Update 2016:
Colby is very good at imitating; in his music and dance class, he learned a whole entire dance routine after being shown the first time! He has come a long way since his early days at the orphanage. At first, he was withdrawn and did not actively engage with others. Nowadays, he’s quite active and extroverted—he actively participates in all classroom activities. Although he was diagnosed with Down syndrome and has cognitive delays, his language ability has greatly improved. Every day before school, he’ll wave and say goodbye to his foster mom. When he comes home from school, he’ll say “hello mother” and “hello father” in his native language. Colby knows all the names of his foster family members, and can name common objects and foods. He has some challenges with expressive language but he’s quite good at understanding others. He has great self-care skills such as putting on his clothes and shoes, using the restroom, brushing his teeth, washing his face, and feeding himself. Colby gets along well with other children and likes to play games with them. His report states that he has a congenital heart defect but that it does not have any obvious effects on his day-to-day life; he hasn’t received surgery for his heart as of May 2016. An agency staff member met him on a recent Journey of Hope trip to China and found that he’s quite talented and showed off his martial art and rollerblading skills! He can speak words and simple sentences, but also communicates through pointing, touch, and body language. He’s been living with his foster family for about 5 years and they shared that he’s a great helper around the house and loves outdoor activities.

Carol  loves sitting and rocking on her hobby horse!  She is enjoys listening to music and rocking on her horse.  She can sit on the bed steadily and can stand with hands holding onto the bed rails.  Sometimes when she sees other children take her favorite toy she will try and take it back.

Update from Sept 2016: In May 2014, Carol went into the care of a foster family and has been living with them ever since. She is currently in kindergarten and has made big progress! Carol is happy, active, talkative, and cute. She can say many daily words. Some words are clear and some are not, but they are all understandable. Sometimes she will sing songs or count from 1 to 10 for her foster grandparents on the way home. After she goes home from school, she will change her shoes and put her school shoes in the cabinet. She will then tell her foster grandma what she wants to eat. She enjoys greeting her neighbors by saying “hello.” If she sees something she does not understand, she will ask her foster grandma, “Grandma, what is this?” When she wants to go out to play, she will tell her foster grandparents “go to play.” If you call her name, she will reply “I am…” or “Ah, what do you want?” If you ask her what her name is, she will tell you her full Chinese name. If you ask her some simple questions, she will reply. Carol’s motor skills are good. She can hold a pen to draw and can write “1.” After drawing, she will put away the pencils in the drawer.

Carol eats with a spoon and is very clean when eating. After eating, she will try to wash her dish. Carol is potty trained, but needs an adult to help her wipe. She loves music and specially loves singing and dancing when she hears music she likes. She has good social skills and is very attached to her foster grandparents. She gets along well with her foster sisters as well. Each night, she will ask her older foster sister to sleep with her. In the past, she would grab her foster sister’s pillow and play or tease her, but she doesn’t do that anymore. Carol’s foster grandma is more serious and her foster grandpa spoils her, so she prefers the foster grandpa and knows to ask him when she has requests. When guests come over, she will show her drawings to the guests. She does not like to eat vegetables, but does like to eat chicken legs and wings and is very clean when eating them. She also enjoys watermelon and bananas, but does not like sour fruit. Carol enjoys playing with her dolls, watching cartoons, and going outside with her foster grandparents. Carol has down syndrome, but is clearly quite high functioning. She couldn’t be doing better, but it’s definitely time she found a forever family of her own!

Abnormality of the head, hyperdactylia (extra digit) of left hand and left foot

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2015:  “A friend and I met her in September. She has a syndrome of some sort with a facial deformity and extra fingers and toes (6 on each). It doesn’t appear to affect her beyond the visual standpoint. Her hearing and vision are normal. She attends a public special education school where she is in the 3rd grade. Her favorite subject is art. Aspen loves vegetables, but is allergic to seafood. She loves to jump rope and play with balls. Her favorite color is pink.  The orphanage staff described her as shy, kind, friendly to other children, helpful, and obedient. She likes to play with others and is very kind to everyone. Jinger speaks clearly and can communicate just fine, though she was very shy and scared when she first met us. By the time we left, she was more comfortable and full of smiles. She enjoys singing, dancing, playing outside, and helping the nannies. Jinger is a lovely and active girl. She likes listening to music and happy tone could make her happy.

She likes to play house and could imitate putting on clothes for the dolls, feeding and dressing the dolls. She is a girl who likes beauty. She is happy when praised as a beautiful girl. Jinger likes playing games with other children. Sometimes she would help the others to put on socks or shoes. The others are happy to play with her. Jinger is polite and would greet initially with the smile on her face.

Except hyperdactylia (of left hand and left foot) and abnormity of the head she seldom gets sick except occasional cold, but she could recover soon after treatment. She is considerate and we hope that she could blossom like a flower and be happy every day.”

postoperative hydrocephalus, postoperative meningocele (spina bifida), optic nerve atrophy, Cerebral palsy

At the first sight, we were impressed by her black eyes. Her eyes were big and black, which seemed to talk. As she grew up, we found her hair was beautiful, black and soft. Till now we do not cut her hair. The caretaker likes dressing her and do various hair style for her. She received the surgery of meningocele and hydrocephalus. Now she is diagnosed as cerebral palsy and optic nerve atrophy. Her motion ability is poor and limbs are not powerful. She can turn over, can lie on the stomach, but can not sit. Additionally her mental development is delayed. She can not speak, just makes some unconscious sounds, she seems to dislike toys and not sensitive to the sounds.  Now she can eat the fixed food, mainly vegetable, meat, egg, noodles, oatmeal, porridge, rice, etc. She also likes fruits. She rarely has illness.

She is slight, and shorter than other children of her age. Though she has lots of disadvantages, she is still a lovely and happy baby. She likes smiling, especially when someone is talking with her and teasing her. When someone is hugging her, she is quiet and listening to adults’ talk, sometimes she touches the person’s face. She likes noisy, always turns her head to the sounds. When no one plays with her, she will be upset and call unhappily. Though she is a disabled child, she is lovely as other healthy child. She has the same feeling, desires to be loved and cared. We hope she would grow up healthily and happily and she would have a family with warm and love. We believe she can adapt new place and bring happiness to the family. Bless Sarea!  Wish she can find her parents soon and have a family. Wish she is peaceful all her life.

Cerebral palsy
PRC

She can laugh aloud. She waves her head when happy. She grasps little toys with left hand and put them into her mouth to bite them. She can sit alone for a short time. She looks around when someone speaks to her.

Fern has a good physical state, has balanced nutrition, has a routine life every day, good living habits but is choosy about food.

From an adoptive parent who saw her in April 2014:
Let me start by saying my heart broke for this little one. She is unable to sit up or feed herself. She cannot walk. She was brought to me in the crib. She smiled when I spoke to her and she grabbed my hand when I placed mine in hers. She laughed when we tickled her and she seemed to enjoy my attention. The nannies say she can smile and laugh when tickled. She can chew and swallow food. She has a familiar caretaker and smiles when she is with her. She is described as a very content child. She is easy going.

Patrick

patrick-updatepatrick-2016Boy, born July 2004
PRC

Listed: October 7, 2012

Patrick has osteogenesis imperfecta, this means that his bones break easily. He is in a wheelchair which he is able to wheel around himself. He lives in a community group home and has just started attending local primary school.

From someone who met him in May 2016:   Patrick is 11 years old and is in the care of ICC in China. He lives in a group home in the local community for high functioning boys. He receives schooling from an ICC teacher and the necessary supports to become more independent. Patrick is loved by all who know him, he has a cheeky smile and is very sweet. He knows some basic English such as: good morning, good afternoon, good evening and some food items like apple, and others.

Patrick has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) or brittle bone disease. This means his bones break easily and that he must be careful. He therefore moves around in a wheelchair, which he can do quite well. There are other families who have adopted children with OI who would be happy to talk to potential adoptive families about their experiences adopting a child with OI. Email Erin to get in touch with those families.

While Patrick is living in a family style environment, this does not fully replace the love, support and opportunities that being adopted would give him. He is close to the boys he lives with and already knows what it’s like to be a brother (to some extent). We hope and pray that the right family will be able to adopt Patrick.

Patrick is extremely cute and endearing and everyone loves him. He is very good at complementing people and making them feel good.

Jessica

Girl, born July 2004
PRC
cerebral palsy

Listed: September 29, 2012

Jessica is a shy and sensitive little girl. She is also timid.

Jessica was abandoned by her parents in front of our institute in 2005 due to her cerebral palsy. At the time, her complexion was dark and she was skinny. She could neither walk nor talk. In the institute, she is a very good girl who did not cry without reason. We all treasure her. When she interacts with other children, she likes to hold hands with them and touch their faces. Most interestingly, she takes very good care of her toys as they are always the cleanest and complete after she plays with them. For all of this, she is constantly praised by our caretakers.

Because of her cerebral palsy, Jessica has limitations in movement and speech. She received rehabilitation treatment in the institute for a period of time. From July 2011, she received rehabilitation treatment  for half a year. Currently, she can walk slowly when holding onto something. She can also say some simple words. For example, she can say the names of all the children in the institute. Because she is timid, she cannot walk freely for fear of falling. She’s afraid to step forward and would sometimes just sit on the floor. We would tell her encouraging words everyday, for Jessica is a child in need of much encouragement.

Following an initial physical examination, it was found she had a congenital heart disease. She had lackluster complexion and dull eyes.

After a period of care, she slowly gained weight and colored returned to her complexion. Even more encouraging is that she began to speak. She will call the caretaker often, which made the caretakers very happy. She took her first step in May 2009 and surprised everyone when she started walking. Most fortunately is in all this time she has been in our institute, her heart disease has never surfaced. She has been living happily.
