Erich

ErichGuardian Angel

Erich (1)Boy, born May 24, 2001
PRC
Blind

 Erich needs to be adopted PRIOR to his birthday in May!

Erich is blind and participates in a program that provides high quality care and education for orphans who are blind or visually impaired. Every child has an individual education plan and the goal is to allow them to be independent and live life to the fullest. Erich came from a large orphanage that didn’t have any special programs for blind children. He had class with the other children his age, even though he is completely blind. Erich has a very technical and logical mind. He loves maths and science, and when he first came he learned Braille from scratch in just one week! He took to it very quickly. He loves knowing how things work, and for his 12th birthday, he got to visit an elevator factory and he loved listening to the engineers telling him how they worked. He used to have one leg longer than the other, but a recent X-ray showed that his legs are the same size! He can walk well but could do with some more physical therapy. In spite of all this, he has now run twice in a (mini) marathon and he often goes to the park to run 3-5km. Erich’s favorite food is tomatoes and his favorite subject is braille. When he grows up he wants to be an engineer! When asked what he would like to tell the world about himself he said “God lives in my heart!”

RemoBoy, 10 years old
moderate mental delay

Good physical development. He is sociable and tries taking part in dialogues with short, simple sentences, accompanied by gestures. He is curious and eager to learn. He is not aggressive to his peers. He eagerly participates in different games. The child seeks contact with adults. He has normal physical development for his age.

He is a very lively, energetic, radiant and friendly boy who wins you over the moment you meet him. The child is well built and is always eager to learn new things. He is not shy, initiates contact easily and openly demonstrates his great desire to have his own mommy and daddy.

Mary Ellen #23

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMary EllenAge: 2
Diagnosis: Arnold-Chiari syndrome; hydrocephalus (shunt installed); spina bifida aperta-surgically repaired; stabismus; frequent bladder infections that are being treated

UPDATE:  “She is turning two in February. She speaks her first words and loves any attention she can get. She had surgical correction of her spine and a shunt installed to reduce fluid on her brain.”  “Recently the shunt that keeps her from having too much fluid on her brain failed and she underwent surgery again. The sweet baby who sought contact is now avoiding eye contact. While her physical issues have been met her emotional needs are suffering.”

UPDATE 2014:

became clear that following the revision of her VP shunt at the end of 2013, there are some negative effects on her vision and possibly her hearing. She does not fixate her eyes or follow a moving object with her eyes anymore. Her condition as of now will have to be further clarified.

She is not speaking, does not tolerate even being touched without screaming, has ZERO reaction to sound and no indication that she has any vision (doesn’t track objects moving in front of her face or even blink). We only have a very short video clip of her that is current, but the little girl in the photo you have posted and the info at the top of her report is sadly no longer the same child that is available for adoption. I desperately want to see this little one find a family, but her needs should be very clearly listed upfront.

Photos and videos are available, along with detailed medical reports.

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.

anophthalmia, developmental delays

Alec is a beautiful darling little boy.

Alec was born with one missing eye, a condition typically corrected with a prosthetic eye. He has good vision in his one eye and does not appear to have hearing loss. Alec has developmental delays that may be due to brain damage or brain malformation, in addition to lack of stimulation in his first year of life. Alec was in the care of An Orphan’s Wish for over a year and then was transferred to Little Flower. 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. These services are not available for him in China. He needs to come home to a family who will see the value of this little boy and shower him with the love that he deserves.

Issac

photoboyBoy, born 2007
CO-HSA
ADHD; moderate delays

Isaac is a little boy who was diagnosed with ADHD. Being neglected by his biological parents who used drugs and were unable to care for him, he was in the custody of his grandmother. Unfortunately, the child was overly punished by his grandmother for his inability to follow rules or to do as he was told. This child was removed from his grandmother’s home because his kindergarten reported signs of domestic abuse. The child described that he would get in trouble for things like not being able to control his bladder, so he would hide his soiled clothes.

In Isaac’s diagnosis, his doctors described the following in his report:
Isaac was diagnosed by the neurologist with ADHD, with moderate mental delays and a developmental delay; he has an IQ of 55, (although but this is not secure information because it has been difficult to evaluate his cognitive area). He can’t open his buttons yet, prefers to use a spoon and his hands when eating than using a fork. He can’t handle a zipper, he cannot wash his hands, can identify different parts of the face. In his past in school, he is reported to have thrown tantrums. Isaac doesn’t speak clearly yet, has problems controlling sphincters (both), his motor skills development is adequate and he’s right handed. Regarding his behavior, while this little boy has definitely improved in the last year, he doesn’t share with other children, doesn’t speak with other children, follows very little rules, can’t stay still for long periods of time. He is taking Ritalin twice a day.

Because of Isaac’s ADHD, he requires a loving and caring family that will help him to overcome his developmental delays caused by years of abuse and negligence. He also needs to feel unconditionally accepted, building again his self-esteem, so that he can have emotional stability and feel the love he never had with his biological family. He attends speech and occupational therapy regularly and takes Ritalin twice daily.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him. The agency anticipates they’ll have his file for 3-6 months.

Juan Diego

photoboyBoy, born 2009
CO-HSA
HIV+

Juan Diego was born to his biological mother who was presumably HIV+ in 2009.  After a cesarean birth, both he and his mother were very sick. Juan Diego soon after had pneumonia and diarrhea. The newborn was hospitalized for specialized care due to his having a high reading of HIV. He was officially diagnosed as being HIV positive with vertical transmission. The biological father visited one time and lamented his fear of losing his son (He had previously had three children with a different woman. These children were also given for adoption). While baby Juan Diego was in the hospital initially, the biological mother called frequently visited to check on him but she was unable to communicate effectively and eventually stopped calling. Finally, the declaration was made that the birth father had abandoned the birth mother, who went back to live with her immediate family to get medical attention.

As of the final months in 2012, sweet Juan Diego was short and had a low weight for his age. All of this due to his illness and time spent on hospitalization/medical attention, he had low muscle tone and low coordination. Though still unstable, he is able to walk and shows clear right-handedness. He is able to focus on activities but is more able to engage in games and other activities when led by an adult or when playing with others. He likes to play make-believe with figurines (also displayed in an available picture of him). He presents as very shy but this is likely exacerbated by his delayed communication skills. He expresses his feelings well and smiles often.

He is receiving ongoing antiretroviral therapy and takes medication for hay fever.

This sweet little boy just had his 4th birthday at his children’s home at the beginning of June 2013. This adoption agency only has Juan Diego’s file for advocacy for one month until his file could move on.  Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

Jared

JaredBoy, born May 2004
PRC
post-operative spina bifida

 

At 3 yrs old, he was described as “both introverted and extroverted, bright and lovely.” He was further described as a social child who likes to play with the caregivers and gets along well with other kids. It was reported that he was “naughty and sometimes obstinate.” It should be noted, however, that the term for naughty in Chinese “tiaopi” has a positive connotation that is more closely described as “spunky.” At that time, he liked watching cartoons and listening to music.

In a 2011 report, his caregivers described Jared as an energetic boy who prefers active play and sports.
He was attending community school, and had just completed the first grade. When asked about his favorite subjects, he reported that he likes physical education and Chinese, but not math. He has a best friend, and says his favorite foods are peaches and watermelon.

His special need is post-op spina bifida (meningocele); two seizures at age 1 and age 2. No additional seizures have occurred.  He is continent, has normal cognitive functions and has good motor function.

From a volunteer at a camp Jared attended: To be totally honest, he is very cute. I really love him, he is so lovely.  His personality is great, he is so sweet and mature and properly extroverted, he will listen to my words and do as told when it’s good for him, which I think is really necessary to judge whether is good or not, and he shows potential of being independent and mature, compared to his age. He wanted to play the games in my smart phone and likes watching cartoons. He’s good at being smart and obedient to what’s really good for him, I think he’s a kid with high IQ.

I think he is almost normal, the week that I spent with him, I did not find any deformity or disability, I think he can do all the things, but what I know is that, he has nerve damage in his waist spine. He’s a very good kid in summary, the most beautiful part about him is that he is willing to share his past, he told me how his parent abandoned him and he shows no resentment about that, the fact that he does not have bitterness in his heart really can make me believe that he’s a kid with a big heart and a good personality.

She will usually start to feel better after lying down for half an hour. Danielle is a very polite and sensible little girl. Usually, when she has nothing to do, she likes to help the nannies with whatever she is able to help with. She enjoys playing games with other children and really loves to talk. She is lively and open, and is well liked by everyone.

Danielle has become an active little girl. She likes to go jogging in the morning with the other kids and can run 400-500m. She did not attend school due to flare-ups of her condition, and because she has not been attending school, her intelligence is a bit lower compared to her peers. However, she has good language ability and can communicate with others normally. She enjoys singing songs and can recite some poetry. She can also write numbers. Danielle is also very hospitable. When guests come, she will warmly greet them, ask if they would like to sit down, and will shake their hand to say goodbye when the guests are leaving. She also considers herself as the Big Sister and will take care of the younger children.

Dani’s caregivers say that she is very hospitable, kind, and helpful. She likes to help clean up after the younger kids in the orphanage. Her favorite thing to do is SING!

Alana

photogirlGirl, born January 2009
CO-HSA
Prader-Willi Syndrome

Alana was recently diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and a new and recent picture is now available from the agency.

Alana is an only child born to her mentally disabled mother. Alana first lived with her biological mother and grandmother until maternal relatives took her in after observing that her mother was incapable of properly caring for her. In this home, she was physically mistreated and rejected, as she was afraid of bathing and having her diaper changed. The child was removed from their home and is now living in a foster home with a foster mother, that mother’s children, and other foster children.

At exactly 3 years old, Alana had developmental delays, making her cognitive ability closer to that of a typical healthy 7-8-month-old baby. She was still crawling and wearing diapers when she turned 3 years old, but had mastered her pinching/grabbing ability. At the time of her report (3 years old) she babbled and attempted more complex sounds. Alana’s development is quickly improving because she attends a regular therapy treatment for children with delays and disabilities. She stands and gains strength in her limbs with each day.

Over all, Alana is an affectionate little girl who can imitate adults and expresses feelings like happiness, sadness, shame, love and more. She recognizes her caregivers and shows initial nervousness to strangers. Alana is calm, explores her environment and is very adaptable. She plays well alone and sleeps soundly.

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.  The agency anticipates they’ll have her file for 3-6 months.

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.

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!

Joy is getting better and better since coming [here]. With enough teaching and training we hope Joy will be able to live independently eventually. Joy was hit when she was little. We only spent several hours with her, but she wasn’t aggressive when we were there. She actually was quite caring. She can cook and do everything for herself. School is very hard for her and when she can’t do her school work it makes her very sad. Joy only lived with [the volunteer] for a few months, but she had improved greatly in that time. Her behavior was much better. She isn’t sure about her being able to live independently.

Down syndrome

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.

Doug #33-4

Doug DOB: June 2007

Doug has already been transferred to a mental institution!!!

This precious little boy has already been through several major transitions in his short life. He was raised by his birth family until he was 16 months old. He was then placed in an orphanage for young children for 7 months. A month before his 3rd birthday, he was transfered to a mental institution, where he currently lives.

Doug has moderate mental delays with no known cause. He walks and runs and climbs on objects. His visual-motor skills are developed but he still has difficulty with fine motor tasks. His speech is delayed and he is not talking at this time.  He has recently begun showing an interest in toys and playing with them. He spends time each day in the sensory room. He does not like for the staff to try to direct his activities and prefers to do his own thing. He does play appropriately with toys and manipulates them in the correct ways.  His favorite toys are balls, blocks, cars and trucks.  He recognizes staff members and smiles at them.  He seeks out interactions with them and will cuddle with them too.  He tries to get them to follow him and to engage them in whatever activity he is doing. He doesn’t yet seek out any interaction with the other children.   He eats from a spoon and drinks from a cup with some assistance from the staff.

At 27 months of age, his skill level was tested at:
motor skills- 2 years
speech development- 5-6 months
cognitive development: 10-12 months

$18.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!  

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