Kevin

KevinBoy, born 2007
PRC
possible muscular dystrophy

Kevin’s story is so heartbreaking. He was brought to the orphanage when he was 4 years old; scared, lonely, and confused. They decided to give him an IQ/DQ test just a few months after he arrived; he did not score very high (not surprising at all, given the trauma of the past few months!). He appeared to be in good health overall. Kevin came to the U.S. as part of an agency’s host program. At that time, he was active, healthy-looking, and doing well. When he returned to his orphanage, his physical health began to decline. Currently, Kevin is unable to walk any distance at all without falling. He requires help to get up off the floor, or from the toilet. He can only eat soft foods that are easy to chew. There is a strong possibility that Kevin has muscular dystrophy. Throughout it all, Kevin has remained a positive outlook, a loving nature, and a great compassion for others. Kevin is now 8 years old. He is currently in a foster home at the orphanage, and takes care of the younger children there. Kevin needs a family of his own, in an area that can provide him the care and treatments he will need.

Evan Paul

Evan RKBoy, born December 2011
PRC
meningocele, clubbed foot

Evan Paul will be 4 years old in December. He was found abandoned when he was just 3 days old. Evan Paul was born with a meningocele (where a sac of fluid protrudes through an opening in the baby’s back, but the spinal cord is not in this sac and there is usually little or no nerve damage), which was surgically corrected when he was one month old. He also had a hernia which was repaired at the same time. Evan Paul’s left foot is clubbed, but it doesn’t slow him down at all.

Evan Paul has good bowel and bladder control, has age-appropriate intellectual development, and is very attached to his foster family, including a foster sister. He loves candy, playing outside with cars, and being held.

Can Evan Paul be the son your family is looking for?

Gunther

Boy, born 2011
PRC
CHD, anal atresia, scoliosis

Gunther just turned four years old. He was found abandoned when he was about three days old and brought to the orphanage. Gunther was born with anal atresia and had surgery when he was less than a week old. He was also initially diagnosed with a congenital heart defect but received no surgery, medication or other treatment and the orphanage considers that this condition has healed itself. He is also diagnosed with scoliosis, but has received no treatment for that. Gunther has a scar on his cheek as a result of treatment for a hemangioma, but he’s still adorable. Gunther walks, runs and dances. He is reported to have normal intelligence and is described as very clever. He likes to play with other children. We met Gunther in his orphanage in June and were quite taken with him. He was fascinated with games on our I-pad and was able to quickly figure out how they worked.

Gunther needs a family. Could it be yours?

Chadwick

ChadwickBoy, born 2012
PRC
Dyskinesia, strabismus

Chadwick will be 4 years old in March. He was abandoned at the railway station on his birth day and came into orphanage care. Chadwick is diagnosed with dyskinesia of his left arm and leg, which means he has some involuntary muscle movements. His left arm is weak and not very mobile, but he’s walking independently so any weakness in his left leg isn’t holding him back much. He also has strabismus (crossed eye), although that’s not in his official diagnosis.

We met Chadwick in his orphanage at the end of June and he was a happy, smiling boy. He is reported to have normal intelligence. Chadwick follows directions, likes to help adults with housework, and has simple speech.

Can you help Chadwick become all that he can be?

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?

Jonathan

Jonathan RKBoy, born July 2013
PRC
Congenital heart defect; extra fingers, tracheotomy

Jonathan turned two in July. He was abandoned near a garden when he was about three weeks old and has lived in the orphanage ever since. Jonathan was born with a few challenges: a congenital heart defect which was repaired when he was two months old and is thought to be resolved, extra fingers on both hands, a small ear lobe deformity, and torticollis. At 10 months old, he had surgery to reconstruct his larynx and now has a tracheotomy, which is checked every 6 months and hopefully will be removed soon. At 11 months old, he had a feeding tube placed in his stomach (possibly due to the tracheotomy) which will be removed when he’s better able to eat and drink. Jonathan’s left testicle is under-developed. The tracheotomy prevents him from speaking or making any sounds.

Jonathan is described as quiet and shy. He likes listening to music, making others laugh, and playing with toys. He is cruising around his play area and on the verge of walking independently.

Jonathan needs a special family who can see past his current medical issues and help him reach his full potential. Could you be the family for him?

He loves to play with his toys, listen to music, and play with other children. His favorite game is hide and seek! His motor abilities continue to improve to where he is able to pick up small objects with his hands and hold a pen to scribble. He sleeps well at night and has a good appetite.

Rory

 

Rory (1)Boy, born January 2012
PRC
meningocele (post surgery) / hydrocephalus (post surgery)

Rory is a handsome, engaging, and active boy who is 3 years old. He came to the orphanage at around 6 months old, and they discovered he had already received surgery for a meningocele, and had a shunt placed for his hydrocephalus. Rory was able to sit unassisted, and before long was crawling. He is having casting procedures to correct his club foot, so he is temporarily using a wheelchair. You can see in his video that being sidelined from the action is almost more than he can stand! Rory has undescended testicles, which need to be corrected as soon as possible. His shunt has been trouble-free. Rory (without the cast) is able to stand with assistance, but is unable to walk at this time. He is incontinent. Rory has no cognitive delays, is a bright and social boy. Before his recent cast, he would get around by crawling and moving with his knees in a kneeling position. Physical therapy would be so beneficial for Rory! He needs a family! Video is available from the agency.

Susan

SusanGirl, born March 2006
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: October 29, 2015

Susan is active and outgoing. She needs some time to be familiar with strangers and will interact with you if you are familiar. She gets along with others very well. She can communicate with others basically. She would help others to get utensils out. She can walk; go up and down stairs alone. She could stack blocks. She is very helpful to other kids. She will carry chairs, clean rooms and pick up garbage on the floor.

Additional photos available from the agency.

From her host family, February 2016:
Suzy has adjusted well to being in our home.  She initially had some anxiety during travel in our vehicle. This seems to have subsided after the first couple of day trips. We believe it may be related to not being certain where we were going and if she would be returning to our home. At this point, after six days with our family, she seems comfortable with our outings, and seems to understand that we will end up back at our house by the end of the day. This comfort seems to help her. She does get sleepy while riding in the car, if traveling over 45 minutes at a time. She naps, and then readily wakes up when we stop, with no problems.

Suzy is staying in the bedroom with two of our girls, ages 11 and 8. She remembers our 8-year old, who was a close friend in China! She has bonded well to both girls, looking to the older one as a constant guide/helper/playmate, and enjoys playing with the younger one, too. The girls are often holding hands when we’re walking about during our outings. Suzy is very sweet to our youngest daughter, age 6, who is wheelchair-bound and cannot speak. She also gets along well with our two boys, ages 15 and 13. Suzy is an obedient child, and listens to what we ask her to do. She also does a good job with our hand gestures, use of English, and demonstrations with the other kids to let her know what we are asking of her. She is a good-natured child, and has a very pleasant personality. She often giggles and laughs, and is now saying “hello” to people we pass by in the stores. She also says “bye” to people readily. She is seeming to understand us better each day, picking up on what we are saying (in English) and motioning.

Suzy is eating well. She usually eats a small breakfast, medium size lunch, has snacks during the day, and a larger dinner. This is by her own choosing, as we let her eat what she needs. She enjoys the Chinese food that we’ve made or purchased. We have also had Chick-fil-A and made taco salad, which she liked. She favors rice, meat, and some vegetables. We had ice cream this afternoon, which she thoroughly enjoyed!

We have gone to the park on a couple of occasions, to the pet store, and gone shopping. We also went to church and to an evening kids program. We have invited people over to our house to visit as well. She really does well in stores, and does not reach out to touch a lot of things. She stays with us in the stores very well. She liked riding in the cart for a little while.

Calvin

Calvin CollageBoy, born May 2011
PRC
Blind

Beautiful Calvin was recently met by agency staff. Calvin is blind and is listed as having a Mongolian spot, which pretty much every child in his country has. He has been in foster care in the village inside the orphanage grounds since the end of 2013. Prior to that he was living in the countryside with a family. He goes to school in the orphanage, where he just started his 2nd year of ‘kindergarten.’ He loves to play games and play with toys he knows or is familiar with. He has normal hearing, but can’t see light unless it is very bright. He is not a picky eater- he’ll eat anything he is given. He is sensitive and might have some possible sensory issues- mostly related to his need. He is cautious about new things and change, ie: new classroom teacher. He can recite poems and say 2 and 3 word sentences. He could smell the snack that the teacher brought out for him. 🙂 He was able to follow directions and is a very calm/mild child. His caretakers said he is introverted. He was shy at first, but really started opening up more towards the end. He is kind, friendly, helpful, obedient and smiley. His mental abilities are normal.

There is a $4,000 agency grant for Calvin’s adoption with his current adoption agency.

Becky is a pretty girl who is known for her sweet nature. She is 12 years old, and has been in care since she was a baby. Becky has lived in the same foster family for many years. Becky’s right leg is about 1cm shorter than her left, which causes her to walk with a slight limp. She has delays in her language, and cognitive skills. Becky is unable to retain much of what she is taught. She can follow directions, and is a big help around the house where she completes her chores quite happily. Becky responds to questions with a one word reply. She seldom uses two words together. Becky loves music, and loves to dance! She also enjoys watching cartoons. It is difficult to say if Becky will be able to live independently as an adult, but with the love and support of a family of her own, she will surely reach her full potential.

Though I did not meet him, I did visit his orphanage a month ago and it is by far one of the best ones in China. They are doing good things there, as the kids were all doing well and were being prepared for their forever families. Dimitri is very smart, has the best smile and cutest little faces ever, and doesn’t seem to let anything stop him! His arms are affected by the arthrogryposis so he uses his toes and feet for many tasks, such as playing a keyboard, holding a cup, etc. He walks independently and can go up and down stairs. His arm function has improved and his grip strength is increasing as well, but he could use some strengthening of his core muscles. Dimitri is able to count to 20 and speak in full sentences of 5 or more words. Dimitri is a treasure just waiting to be discovered! Could Dimitri be your son?

Adorable Tyler was recently met by agency staff advocating for him! They believe he is likely still waiting because his diagnosis section of his file is so lengthy!

But wait until you hear what his orphanage (a very good one by the way) said about him and what the agency staff observed! Tyler had a kidney problem, but had a surgery to correct it and it doesn’t appear to affect him any longer. He is toilet trained. He has a wrist deformity and has two fingers on his right hand and 3 fingers, 1 thumb on his left hand. The orphanage staff described him as friendly, kind, extroverted, creative, and obedient. They said that he is a leader and that he smiles often. His hearing and vision are normal. He lives in foster care and is attending school, where he is in first grade. His favorite subject is art. Tyler has many friends, but his best friend is Shun Jie. His favorite color is red, favorite animal is a chicken, and his favorite foods are strawberries, cucumbers, and meat. Tyler loves to do puzzles and play with balls. Tyler seemed like a terrific little guy!

Ryland

Ryland (2)RylandBoy, born October 2006
PRC
Congenital Heart Defect

Handsome Ryland is diagnosed as having Congenital Heart Defect (CHD): transposition of the single atrium, single ventricle and great arteries with moderate stenosis of pulmonary artery. The CCCWA asked the agency Ryland is listed with to advocate for him because they want him to find a family and know that he needs to get out quickly. If that doesn’t tell you this kid is special, read on.

Ryland’s file is outdated so the agency he is listed with has requested an update for him. From his 2013 file: At the age of 4 years until now, he studies in the preschool class. He can recite many children’s songs, can recognize common words, can count 1-100, and can do addition and subtraction within 10. He is toilet trained and can dress and undress independently and button clothing. At that time he was not able to tie his shoelaces. He is polite and can greet people. Ryland likes watching cartoons and imitating. His language ability is normal- he can tell about things, can tell what he see, and can ask questions. He is helpful and kind to others, helping his orphanage brothers and sisters up if he sees them fall down. He does well in school and gets his homework done. He likes studying and is clever. Ryland is described as having normal mental and physical development besides his serious heart condition.

This part of his file was too sweet not to include: Ryland has been living in the welfare institute since he was young. He regards the welfare institute as his home. There is the common mom in the institute, as well as caretakers and children who are like brothers and sisters to him. The institute is like a big family- everyone lives together and studies happily. He does feel lonely here. If one day he is adopted, he will miss the kids and caretakers here. He will visit them if he has chance. Returning home is his dream. He is looking forward to his own dad and mom. If he can be adopted by foreigners, he will be very happy. He would like to be adopted. Ryland sounds like an amazing child! We are looking forward to what his update has to say about him and hope to find him a family who can expedite his adoption and get him home soon!

There is a $3,000 agency grant for Ryland’s adoption with the current agency he is listed with. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions.

meningocele / hydrocephalus (both post surgery)

Aden is a very handsome boy who is 6 years old. (Most of the photos in his file are over 3 years old) He came into care as a newborn, when he was found at a park.

Aden began walking after lots of therapy when he was 3 years old. Now, he is able to care for all his own needs, and attends pre-school. He drinks from a cup, despite the bottle in the photo! His gait is not smooth when he walks, but he is a very determined little boy! Aden is very honest, and polite. He is often seen helping others.He has a great imagination, and loves to tell stories! Aden loves to draw and paint. He needs some help in math, but is eager to learn. Aden needs a family to give him the love and support he needs.

Francis (1)Boy, born September 2009
PRC
Hydrocephalus

Sweet Frank recently turned six years old. Frank is in a province that is very convenient for traveling families. The agency’s in-country facilitator recently met Frank and has this to say about him: “Frank is from a very nice orphanage that takes great care of their kids. He is post-op for hydrocephalus. He can understand things and can say simple words. He knows how to call others. He needs a lot of repeated directions or reminders for him to do things or so that he can remember what you tell him. He is not yet potty trained. He doesn’t know numbers or colors yet.”

Frank is quiet and introverted. He is mild when he speaks and he has a ready smile.

There is a $2,000 agency grant for Frank’s adoption with his current agency. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions.

Emma

Emma2

EmmaGirl, born February 2010
PRC
Cerebral palsy

Emma is a spirited, and awfully cute, little girl who is 5 years old! She came into care as a 6 month old, and was initially found to have no significant health issues. There was a clue, however. The back of Emma’s head was flattened a bit, which indicates she had spent way too much time flat on her back in a bed the first 6 months of her life. Needless to say, her development was delayed at that point, and the reason was soon discovered. Emma has since received a diagnosis of CP, which appears to affect her right side. She is not yet talking or toilet trained. Emma has a lot of work to do to catch up with the other kids. The orphanage staff has been diligent in helping her. Emma can walk, and climb stairs. Emma is quite willing to stick up for herself…they say when she used her walker, and another child took her toy, she would quickly “drive” the walker and chase the child to retrieve the toy! Emma loves to laugh, and gets along well with older and younger children (unless they take her toys). This sweet little girl will surely benefit from PT/OT/speech sessions, and most of all, from the love and laughter of her very own family.

Vision impairment, repaired cleft lip, cleft palate (unsure if repaired)

Sadie is a delightful and bubbly little girl who is 5 years old! Her photos are outdated. She came to the orphanage as a baby, and was found to have a cleft lip and palate, as well as a vision impairment. Sadie had her cleft lip repaired in 2011, but we are unsure if her palate has been repaired. Part of her file suggests it has, but there are no surgery reports for a palate repair. Sadie is a doll…the nannies all love her! She loves to play on the slide with the other kids, and ride the rocking horse. Sadie’s fine motor skills are good, however, at 3 years old she was not walking unassisted. She was crawling at that time. Sadie is a lovable and active little girl who needs a family to help her reach her full potential!

Maggie (1)Girl, born September 2013
PRC
Cleft palate, repaired cleft lip, CHD (PDA), delays

 

Maggie is a precious little one who has just turned 2. She arrived at the orphanage when she was about 6 months old; a frail and quiet baby girl. She was found to have a cleft lip and palate, CHD (PDA), and the ring finger and middle finger of her left hand fused. She had the lip surgery in 2014, but no palate surgery yet, to our knowledge. Her heart defect, Patent Ductus Arteriosus, is not at all uncommon. An x-ray of her hand showed mostly adhesion of the adjacent skin of the two fingers. Maggie has delays of both motor skills and speech. It is difficult to say if the delays are due to her known medical issues (plus unknown care for her first 6 months), or if there may be another cause. We do know Maggie needs help. She needs a family to love her unconditionally, and medical care plus therapies to help her reach her full potential. Maggie needs a family.

Tailia #59-4

Tailia 594Girl, 8 years old

Sweet Tailia deserves the chance to know the love of a mother and father. She has a severely impaired condition due to her special needs (infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadriparesis, symptomatic epilepsy, dysmorphic syndrome, neonatal seizures and severe mental delay)

Tailia has hypotonia – she turns from back to belly improperly. Her grasp reflex is underdeveloped but if an adult touches her hand with a rattle toy, she would hold the rattle toy for a while. The child’s visual-motor coordination is disturbed. She has convergent strabismus and nystagmus, she does not follow a bright-colored object with her eyes and she doesn’t make eye contact. She responds to sound stimulation and noises as she gets startled by those, but does not always orientate about the direction those are coming from. The development of her expressive speech is greatly delayed and she has not yet started producing sounds.

The child is usually calm during meal times, bathing, etc., unless she is not feeling so well and is ill, for instance. She cries quietly.

Her emotional responses are not intense – if touched and caressed by an adult, she would smile slightly, but otherwise her facial expression is not diverse in terms of mimics.

Could you be the one to show her what love is?

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.

Kenny

KennyBoy, born 2013
PRC
Congenital Heart Defect

Kenny recently turned two years old. When he was about 4 months old, he was left at a safe haven drop spot at the local orphanage. Kenny has a heart defect (patent foramen ovale) but it is reported to be closing on its own and it’s thought that it will not require surgery. He may have bronchopulmonary dysplasia (abnormal development of lung tissue) which affects premature babies, who are born with underdeveloped lungs. [According to the internet, many babies diagnosed with BPD will recover close to normal lung function, but this takes time. Scarred, stiffened lung tissue will always not work as well as it should. But as infants with BPD grow, new healthy lung tissue can form and grow, and might eventually take over much of the work of breathing for damaged lung tissue.] Kenny received treatment for BPD in March, 2014 and now his condition is improved, with decreased incidents of shortness of breath.

Recently, the orphanage’s physical therapy team has been working on the right side of his body, which seems a little weaker than the left. He is not able to hold things in his right hand. Kenny’s mental development is age appropriate. His physical development is good – he can crawl, sit, and walk holding on. Kenny is very attached to his nannies and loves to play with the 10 children in his room. Can Kenny be the son you’ve been searching for?

Mick

MickMick was born in April 2013 and has Down Syndrome. His caretakers are happy with his development.

Mick eats and sleeps well. He can feed himself solids like cookies or bread and drink without assistance. He is reportedly using the potty, but may only be trip-trained. Mick follows simple instructions.

Mick is a very active boy who walks when held by the hands, but is expected to take his first independent steps soon. He plays with toys, absolutely loves music and dances well. Mick is an expert rocking horse rider, too.

 

From an RR family who met him in June 2015:  “First and foremost he’s adorable. He is extremely happy, always smiling! He loves to dance and listen to the music. He seems to have pretty low tone because when we were there, he wasn’t walking.  He was in a stroller a lot of the time. But he could sit up and I believe pull to a stand. He was honestly so adorable! I remember him clapping a lot. He definitely would thrive with some love! He wasn’t one of the kids who got a lot of attention.”

Hasini

Hasini (2)Hasini (3)Girl, born July 2012
PRC
malnutrition, developmental delay, oral deformity. ametropia and double strephenopodia

Hasini was wearing orthopedic shoes for rehabilitation as of the time her file was prepared. Hasini had a CT scan come back normal. There is a very good possibility that she has what is called Moebius Syndrome, which affects the muscles that control facial expressions and eye movements.
Hasini is described as gentle and quiet. From her outdated file: Hasini can sit stably for a long time now. She can use her left hand to go from lying down to sitting and can flexibly turn over. She likes to crawl backwards. When she is happy, she would grab the bed handrail to rock her body. She can clap and can grasp the toys attached to her bed. She can understand simple instructions. For example, if the caretaker asks her to put her hands down, she will do it. If tell her “we need to stand up,” she will give her hand to the adults because we have to help her up. She can make the “a” “e” “na” sounds. She falls asleep quickly. Hasini is afraid of strangers, but after some time, she gradually accepts the strangers. She likes playing with other kids.

A recent update states that she moved from foster care back to the orphanage recently. The update was not very positive, but Hasini has only been with them for a few months. The inability to make facial expressions may cause confusion for those who try to care and interact with her. Hasini needs a family who can see the beautiful little girl she is. Those with Moebius Syndrome do not smile with their mouths, but with their hearts. Will you be the lucky family who gets to see Hasini’s heart smile?

Maybe Hudson is the son you’ve been searching for?

Keegan is a handsome, and active boy who is 5 years old. He came into care when he was 2 years old, unable to walk or talk. He soon began walking, but his speech was limited to “yiyi yaya”.

Keegan is very friendly, active, and an easy going little boy. He gets along well with other kids and really loves to play outside! Keegan needs a family, correction for his vision issue, and help with his speech. Oh…he would also probably like a bike and a swing set!

Ashton

Ashton Photo 1 Dec-2013Ashton was born prematurely in July of 2007. He has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, bilateral second to third degree neuro-sensory hearing loss, strabismus, left-sided cryptorchidism, and absence of speech. Ashton has been fitted with hearing aids for both ears that allow him to hear speech and sounds at louder volumes, but unfortunately, Ashton does not like to keep his hearing aids on.

Ashton’s overall development is delayed. He recently moved to a new orphanage where he now receives regular speech and physical therapy and is showing progress. In 2013, Ashton has learned to walk a few steps independently, due in large part to own his determination and desire to be mobile. He understands what he is told and can follow instructions. Ashton’s social skills are not well developed and he struggles to participate in group games, but he is described as a smiley and friendly boy.

Update October 2014: Ashton is now a first grader at a school for the hearing impaired. He enjoys school and has become more comfortable with wearing his hearing aids which has improved his interactions. Ashton is now able to walk.

Felix

Felix Photo 1 Oct-2014Felix was born in February 2011 and has been diagnosed with arthrogryposis. He is an active, friendly boy who interacts well with other children, loves his caretakers, and knows everyone by name.

Due to his medical condition, Felix cannot yet walk, but he is very mobile by crawling. He can sit and stand independently and is fully potty-trained, but needs assistance with feeding. Felix speaks in sentences and while a little shy with unfamiliar people to start, he quickly warms up and shows his happy personality.

Update October 2015: Felix’s cognitive development is said to be on target. Surgical intervention for his arthrogryposis is not available in his birth country.

Update June 2016: Felix continues to develop well, despite his limited mobility.    He sits unassisted, is potty-trained and tries to feed himself.

From a Family Who Met Felix in March 2016: Felix is part of a weekly Fairytale Group which we sat in on during one of our visits to the orphanage. He was engaged in the group and had a huge grin on his face the majority of the time. After the group was finished, Felix approached us excitedly and wanted to be held. Although his knees are in a bent position he has developed a unique “scootch-hop” to move around on his own. Felix is a cheerful little boy who needs and deserves a forever family.

Lexi

LexiGirl, born October 2005

Hyperextension of right knee/incontinent (possible lower spine issue)

Listed: May 27, 2014

Lexi is a beautiful little girl with such a sweet spirit! She is 8 years old, and has hyperextension of her right knee and is incontinent (possible issue with lower spine). She is able to “walk” with some assistance. Lexi used to sit and watch the other kids run and play, and she was so sad she couldn’t join in the fun. She worked and worked to find a way to get around! Lexi has had some delays but has excellent fine motor skills. She can take care of herself very well and is a smart girl. She has a best friend at the orphanage. Lexi sings while her friend dances. I imagine Lexi would love to be able to dance, too. She will need possible surgery and therapy on her right leg, and help with the continence issues. Lexi is a very loving and patient little girl. She is ready and waiting for a family of her own.

A family met her in country in 2015; they are willing to discuss her privately with families who are seriously considering adopting her.

Chelsea Qi

Chelsea Qi (3)Chelsea Qi (1)Girl, born 2006
She is listed as Blind with a left foot deformity; she was assessed and they confirmed that she has no visual impairments but rather what they think is a visual processing disorder.

Listed: August 25, 2015

Chelsea Qi is a sweet girl with a kind spirit. It is rare to see her without a huge smile on her face. When first meeting her she may come across as shy or reserved but she warms up very quickly!

Chelsea loves to color and craft time was her favorite activity at camp. She could sit for hours coloring, making beaded necklaces or filling in her memory book. Chelsea has a beautiful voice and really enjoys singing! She knows a lot of Chinese songs and even a few songs in English! She really enjoyed our assembly time where we would sing some crazy camp songs and dance. She even sang a song all by herself during the end of week Talent Show. Swimming time was another highlight of the week for her, she loved getting to splash around in the pool and play with the blow up balls. All morning she would ask if it was time to go swimming yet!

Chelsea does have some special needs but her biggest need of all is a family that will love and help her to succeed in life. We have seen what small interventions can do for her development and with proper support and therapies we have no doubt she can continue to thrive! She used to live in a great foster home but had to return to her home orphanage in February 2015. We know she greatly misses her friends and nannies as the situation in her current orphanage isn’t ideal.

A specific agency is offering a $4,000 grant if a family uses their agency to adopt her.

Maximilian is an adorable little guy who recently turned 3 years old. He came into care as a newborn, and was diagnosed with CP. Max has good fine motor skills, excellent speech (although they say he has a short tongue tie), and is able to walk…but not for long distances.

His receptive speech is great, and he follows instructions well. He can easily express his needs. The nannies describe him as “strong and brave”. They also said when he sees the other kids walking and doing things he would like to do he wants to be like them. Max works very hard when exercising…he wants to be strong and able to run and play with his friends. Max need a family, good therapy, and treatment to straighten his neck. Max needs you!

Timon

TimonBoy, born August 2003Timon2
PRC
Hydrocephalus

Listed: July 31, 2015

VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVfnch_a7es

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?

Rebecca

RebeccaGirl, born summer 2003
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: July 14, 2015

A family hosted her two summers ago and would love to see her find her forever family. They’d be happy to talk to inquiring families.  Comments from her host mother:

She is spunky, lively, funny. She had SUCH personality. She responded to love, to being held. She was strong-willed. Very much a “mommy”, too. But, if you had to tell her she did something she shouldn’t, she would break down and cry. So, I would hold her on my lap and she would curl up, close her eyes, and fake being asleep. She just wanted to be loved. She was funny, and LOVED to help. She loved sweeping and cleaning.Rebecca feeding baby

When here, we got her glasses but she didn’t like to wear them. She even hid them once. I would try to get her to wear them, but I didn’t want a “battle of wills” to develop. I let it go, and she would occasionally put them on. She had nystagmus, her eyes shook, and her head would shake a bit, too. It was very endearing to me. When she would insist on something she would stomp her foot, cross her arms, and give me a serious look. It made me smile. She can be bossy!Rebecca at pool

She LOVED swimming! The picture in the purple shirt and sunglasses is at the pool. Every day she would put her swimsuit on, waiting to go swimming, all ready to go in case we went! She blossomed so much! When she first came, she would not let me hug her, or touch her. I kept at it, she eventually curled up in my lap when upset. I would rock her to sleep.

She had the BEST laugh! I mean, with her entire heart and soul!! I. Loved. It!

Barry

Barry (1)Boy, born December 2002 AGING OUT
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Listed: July 9, 2015

Sweet Barry is now 12.5 years old and waiting for his forever family to see him. He was abandoned at a week old and was found by a stranger with a birth note. That person took him in and raised him until he was about 4.5 and then he was turned over to the local orphanage. It was determined when Barry came into care that he had cerebral palsy, but that he was very smart. He did need to use a walker when walking. Barry started receiving rehabilitation therapy once he came into the care of the orphanage. Barry wears orthotics on his legs in addition to using the walker for support. He is very determined and persistent and now insists on practicing standing with the support of the wall for 1-2 hours each day. Barry is a fighter and is very optimistic. He respects his elders and loves the younger children. He helps the nannies with what he can and helps take care of the other children. He practiced for two years so he could perform at the Chinese New Year celebration. He sang a popular song and his optimism affected everyone in attendance. Barry deserves to know the love of a forever family and sounds like a boy who would do so well in a family where he is able to receive the therapies he needs. Do you have room in your hear and home for Barry?

Rigby

Rigby (1)

Rigby (3)Boy, born August 2013
PRC
Motor delays

Rigby is a precious little one who is 22 months old. He came into care when he was about 10 months old…wheezing, and in need of help. After some TLC from the nannies, there was improvement in his health and motor skills. He was still behind his peers, but had become a very engaging and social baby. At 17 months of age, Rigby could roll over, sit with some support, and play with toys. Rigby was not able to crawl or walk at that time. He loves to be around the other kids. The more action, the better! The nannies have noticed he has high muscular tension and uncoordinated movements. There was no formal diagnosis made in his file which had resulted from a thorough exam. Rigby is an active, loving, happy little guy who really needs a family and some good therapy to help him with his gross motor skills. He needs to come home.

Laurel (2)

Laurel (1)Girl, born May 2008
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Laurel is a beautiful little girl who is 7 years old! She came into care when she was about 3 years old, apparently having had little stimulation or training. She was diagnosed with CP, and they began working with her at the orphanage. Laurel has good fine motor skills, and is able to walk without assistance. She is toilet trained (during the day). Her language is a bit behind, although it is difficult to know if that is due to the CP, lack of early education and adult interaction (before she arrived at the orphanage), or just general speech issues. A thorough exam and evaluation when she comes home will be helpful and lead her family in the right direction to help her. Laurel is very sweet, active, and a generally happy little girl! She needs a family!
