Nani

Nina -new2Girl, born July 2012
PRC
DS, post-op CHD

Nani is an adorable baby girl who is 1 year old. She came into care when she was about 6 months old. She was diagnosed with ASD/PDA, which has been successfully surgically corrected. Nani has Down syndrome. Nani’s development was not up to her peers at the time of her report, but we do not know how much of her delay can be attributed to her past heart issue or just typical Down syndrome delays. Nani needs a family who will love her (that will be easy!), and help her receive the therapies she needs to catch up. Nani will be such a sweet daughter!

Gracie and George #

O

Girl, born in 2007.  She has a delay in neuro-psychical development and epileptic seizures.

She is very sweet and charming girl, with very big eyes and eyelashes. She is hyperactive child, who can not stay at one place long time. When you want to attract her attention and she is busy with doing something else, she does not pay any attention to you. When she feels uneasy and can not answer or does not want to answer some question, she starts asking her interlocutor questions. Her speech is not so clear and even some words are not understandable and is more like baby speech. She has speech problem and at the kindergarten she works with speech therapist.  She knows her age. She recognizes some of the basic colors but does not want to count.  She is very self-willed and makes the things that she wants to. She is more aggressive and hyperactive than her brother.

Boy, born in 2005.   He has a delay in neuro-psychical development and mental delay.

The boy is older than his sister but he has more delays than her. He is in second grade in the local school in the village where he lives. Unfortunately he still can not read, can not solve math problems. Before his placement in the foster family nobody cared for his knowledge and habits. Now he can count to 9 (after 9 he says 11 ). He is a child who needs a lot of work in order to master more habits and knowledge because he has some potential.

These children used to live in their bio family but they were not well taken care of. They have delays but with more professional work and individual activities, these children can have better progress. They are adorable children who really need patience, love and care. They know the life in foster families but are separated because the opinion of the social workers is that none of their foster families could manage these two children if they are placed together – because they are not so obedient.

Because we only have their files for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

Neal

Neal Photo 3 rec. Jan-2013Guardian AngelSweet Neal was born in January of 2009 and has been diagnosed with perinatal encephalopathy and psychomotor development delay. We have reports that his doctor has stated that there is a possibility that Neal may be able to walk in the future, but there are no guarantees. He is able to express himself very well. He is a very kind little boy and is very much loved.

Update August 2012: Neal is very shy with people he does not know well, but his caretakers state that he is very outgoing and personable with those he knows well. He can say poems and he is very friendly and sociable. He once told his caretakers that one day he will walk, and they are working on therapy. Currently, he is not so strong but little by little he is progressing.

Update from January 2013: Our agency staff representative visited Neal in January and provided the following update. Neal speaks, understands the speech addressed to him, and recognizes everybody. He is very articulate, using complex sentences and knows poems and songs by heart. With physical therapy he has acquired better head control and is using his hands more. Therapists are working on his legs as well. With the help of physical therapy his doctors feel he will, little by little, develop his muscles. At this point he can stand for a second, which is big progress. Plus he is very smart and he himself wants to stand, walk and be stronger. It is very touching when he says so. It has only been a year and a half that he has been at the orphanage, and all that period of time they have done therapy, only not so intensive. If an intensive therapy was available for him he would have better progress.

Caregiver update March 2014: Everybody agrees the progress that Neal has made by now is huge. He’s able to move his hands and is doing really well. A very smart and sweet boy!

Additional photos, video and personal information available upon request from the agency.

From a family who met Neal in May 2014: Neal is a very shy boy when he doesn’t know you, but it is clear that he is very smart and aware of his surroundings.  Everyone from the orphanage director down raves about Neal’s intelligence.  He knows everyone, can tell you what has happened or will happen, memorizes parts of TV shows, recites poetry and sings songs.  Despite his limited mobility, Neal is now potty-trained and notifies his caregivers when he has to use the restroom.  Neal’s caretakers report that every morning when he wakes up he tells them, “I know my mama is coming.”

Nigel

Nigel Photo 2 rec. 12-3-12Nigel was born prematurely at 29 weeks gestation in February of 2007, weighing 1500g. At the age of two months, Nigel was diagnosed with hypertensive syndrome and deformation of the head. A neurologist has also stated that his cerebellum is small and that is why he had some problems with coordination (in the past).

Nigel was brought to the orphanage when he was 5 months old and lived with his parents until that time. At the orphanage his issues with coordination improved and at present there are no concerns. He is able to walk, run and is very active. After being placed in the orphanage it was also found that he has a hearing impairment. He has not had a full hearing screen but it has been suggested that his impairment is rather severe. His caretakers are apprehensive of anesthesia needing to be used to check the issue further and will wait to see if there are other options. Nigel also has vision impairment, but he does not wear glasses at this time as he ends up breaking them. He is described as a happy boy, who is also very neat. He does not like when something is not in its place or the table is dirty or his clothes are dirty. He lets the caretakers know about it and ask them to clean it.

His caretakers state that he is a very sweet, smiley boy. He knows his caretakers and seems to respond to them. He is a little behind developmentally but they think he will catch up with assistance.

Update from January 2013: After visiting with Callum in January, our agency representative had the following update. Although Callum has some issues with one ear, he is still able to hear. He can walk, but does not speak. He can hear and understand simple tasks. Callum is a very reserved, calm and friendly boy. He likes to play by himself rather than with the other children. He is also very affectionate and likes when people love him and say good things to him. He likes to have his privacy and when he is playing with toys he does not like when somebody interrupts him. He has a good appetite, but has his favorite foods; if he does not like something he will refuse to eat it, as any typical toddler does! Additional photos and videos available upon request from the agency.

Update May 2013: After visiting with Callum in May, our agency representative had the following update. Recently, Callum was taken for a medical examination. The result showed that he does not have one kidney and the other is small. But he is feeling not bad. He still is not speaking or trying to speak. He understands and makes his caretakers understand what he wants with gestures and expressions. It appears that he can hear something, but probably not enough to speak yet. He is playful and friendly as usual, but he loves attention, and if you do not pay attention to him, he may start to cry and become very fussy. He wants visitors to play with him, and if you play with other child he may go to the corner, sit there by himself and feel upset.

Additional photos, video and report available upon request from the agency.

Comments from a current traveling family: “While visiting with our daughter [in the same orphanage] we had the chance to spend some time with “Mackenzie”. Wow… She is an amazing little girl with such a will for life. She shows such determination in everything she does and truly lives her life not letting anything get her down or in her way. She is such a happy little girl with the most contagious beautiful smile. Her diagnosis does not define her and it is clear that she will live life to the fullest if given the chance. She loves when she is talked to, loves listening to music and embraces the touch of others. She is loved dearly by everyone around her while she waits patiently for her forever family.”

From a family who met Mackenzie in May 2014: Mackenzie is a sweet and loving girl.  She can now pull to a stand without assistance and cruise along stable support.  She is even able to wobbly walk while pushing a walker.

Annie #40-4

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnnieDOB: December 2005

Diagnosis: delays in development -report indicates that due to delayed speech, Autism was initially suspected. However, no formal testing has been done and the child’s development is continuing to improve.

Annie is 8 years old. Her motor skills are well developed. She walks, runs, catches & throws a ball, climbs, hops on one foot and participates in musical games that require movement. Her fine motor skills are developing as well. She can open/close scissors and is learning to cut with them. She draws on paper, though she is not yet writing letters. She plays with play dough and builds a tower of 12 blocks. She is in the 1st grade and attending school outside the orphanage. She follows verbal directions and responds to her name. She tries to imitate words said by adults. She currently expresses herself non verbally. She is very protective of her possessions. She doesn’t often initiate play with the other children, but she will play close to them. She will join in organized group activities for short periods of time and is very emotionally responsive to familiar adults. She needs extra time to complete tasks and has a short attention span. She stops inappropriate behaviors when redirected by an adult. She feeds and dresses herself. Since she is non verbal, she does not yet indicate that she needs to go to the bathroom on her own, so she is taken on a schedule and is completely toilet trained using this method.
Update March 2014:
She was recently transferred to a mental institution.

The child has moderate mental delay and her neuropsychological development is delayed mostly with regards to her speech. However, as you will see in the videos, the girl is repeating words after an adult and trying to pronounce them as the adult does. She knows and shows all her body parts, she knows how to write the first letter of her name. She also tries to write her full name but still has some difficulties as she is changing the order of the letters. The girl understands everything she is told by adults. She follows instructions and does errands. She is very musical. In the videos you will see her perform dance movements when asked by an adult.

It is obvious that this is a lovely, affectionate child, who seeks adults’ attention, caress and closeness. She is willing to learn new things and I believe that with a constant family environment, providing her with comfort, encouragement, love and attention and with regular individual sessions with a speech therapist, this child could achieve much more progress in her development.
Additional photos & videos are available.

Cleft lip / cleft palate
Gene has been waiting patiently for his family to come for him for nearly five years. That’s how long his file has been on the shared list. During that time he has seen his friends leave the orphanage for a new life, and still he waits. His best friend was adopted last year and went to live in Spain. But still Gene waits. His special need, a cleft lip and palette, has long been repaired, and he appears to be healthy with just dental cavities listed in his file.

Gene waits because his real special need is that he is an 11 year old boy, and is therefore overlooked. Please don’t let Gene fall in the cracks and become a statistic. He has waited too long for that. He would make a loving son, brother and friend if given a chance. Are you his family?

Developmental Delay

Alice is 9 years old and is very caring and sweet. She is diagnosed as being developmentally delayed, but the volunteer at camp found her to be a very smart girl who loves chatting about everything around her!!

What Alice’s camp counselor had to say:
“I am writing about my girl Alice whom I worked with at camp for a week. Alice is such a great girl! She is 9 years old, loves crafts, singing and dancing in front of people in her own way, and taking care of others. As I watched her, I noticed how kind and sweet she is. Alice is so kind to others, especially children who are with her, or those she lives with at her orphanage.

One of the best moments I had with Alice was when we read our goodbye letters to each other. She seems so tough and tried not to show her emotions to me all week, but when I read my letter to her and she read her letter to me, she started crying. She cried for a very long time, which made me emotional and she turned and looked at me and whispered “I love you.” It broke my heart, but made me so thankful to have this sweet girl in my life that I didn’t realize I needed, until God placed her there.

Alice looks a little small for her age, but has no physical needs. She is very active, talks a lot once she gets to know you, and like I have said before, LOVES kids! It is so neat to see her take care of those around her, make sure they have enough to drink, to eat, and that they are clothed well. Any family would be so blessed to have Alice in their life and I hope you consider adopting her!! She is so amazing and I’m blessed to know her and call her my little sister.”

Kolby is blind but is with preserved intellect and is very smart and sweet!

Kolby can crawl and walk a few steps when held by hand of an adult. He is able to hold a toy that was passed to him. He recognizes familiar and unfamiliar voices. He repeats everything said by adults and is learning children songs. He is able to answer questions correctly with yes or no. He is able to raise himself around fixed support and to sit. He enjoys the proximity of a loved adult, he likes to be hugged. He prefers to play with rattles, creating strong noise by hitting them into objects. He has a positive attitude towards himself and the surrounding. He does not show any signs of aggression or autoaggression.

 

Update July 2014
Kolby is very beautiful and charming little boy who has a lot of potential!! If he has the chance to find and live in supporting family environment – with a loving, caring family, who helps him show and develop his potential, he has the abilities to achieve a lot. He is just 4 and he can speak, walk and freely lead a dialog with adults. This child just needs someone, who will love and direct him and then I am more than sure that growing up he will have more independent and free life – life that everyone needs and deserves. He memorizes very quick, his intellectual capacity is very good. This child is looking for contact and socialization most of the time – just because he is motivated by himself, he needs it. He misses one of the most important sense that can master skills and information with (his vision), but he has fully preserved intellectual capacity, as well as auditory. He can achieve a lot if he finds his family forever, who will support, help and show him how to master new, and more and more skills. This child really needs his chance for better future, full of love and care that will help him to be complete adult in the future!

Jace #37

JaceBoy, Age: 7
Diagnosis: cognitive delays

Jace was placed in foster care at the age of 4. He was given a diagnosis of infantile Autism in 2011. That diagnosis has been questioned, based on Jace’s development and lack of indicators for Autism. He has been attending a day program for children with special needs for over 2 years and he continues to progress in all aspects of his development.

We will receive an updated report on his current development soon. Reports from 2012 indicate that at that time, his gross motor skills are not delayed. He walks, runs, climbs stairs independently, etc. He can feed himself, was beginning to toilet train & was mastering other self-help skills such as getting dressed/undressed without assistance. He interacts with other children and adults. He plays with toys. His expressive speech is delayed, but he does understand what is said to him.

There are several additional photos and videos of him from 2012. In the videos, he is playing with toys, making eye contact and responding (by following directions) when spoken to. New photos and videos will be available soon.

Ember #426 OD

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGirl, 13 years old
Mild developmental delays

Ember was placed in an orphanage due to the parents’ neglect and there is some evidence of abuse in the family. The girl has overcome her past and is now progressing and developing her potential – enjoys going to school and demonstrates the skills she acquired at school with pleasure; she is emotionally stable and her dominant mood is positive. She is usually lively, cheerful and talkative. She communicates well with the children and is taking care of newly placed and younger children by protecting them and comforting them. She has started to more and more explicitly claim a leadership position in the group of children. She has extensive interests and enjoys taking part in creative activities.

The girl has a positive idea of a family and longs to have a family.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
