Down syndrome, Congenital Heart Defect

Adele is a sweet little girl who was estimated to be born in January of 2015. She was abandoned when she was about 9 days old and was diagnosed with Down syndrome and a heart defect (PFO). Although her caregivers describe her as introverted and fond of quiet time, she is affectionate and loves to be cuddled! She can hold up her head while lying on her stomach and roll over, though she cannot yet sit upright or crawl. She can easily follow the directions of sounds and voices, and will quietly listen to music when she hears it.

adele-update2Agency staff were able to meet her in May of 2015 and described her as a happy baby who interacted well with her caregiver. Her caregiver reported that she sleeps well at night and has a good appetite. We have updated videos and a photo of her from our trip for interested families!

Marielli

Marielli2

MarielliMarielli-2Girl, born 2011
PRC
Post-operative cleft palate
Beautiful Marielli has a contagious giggle. She loves to play with her foster mommy and giggles every time a toy block falls from her head. Like most toddlers, she wants to play the game on repeat. She shows how she wants to play again by grabbing her foster momma’s hand and motions to do it again. One of her favorite times of day is bath time! The sweet girl loves to splash and splash.

She is social, active and definitely not shy. She is often comforted by being held and snuggled when she is upset. Marielli was fortunate to be a part of Love Without Boundaries cleft exchange in 2012 and has had her cleft palate repaired already. Her file states that she congenital cleft palate (now repaired) and poor brain development. She is sure to be an absolute joy to a family. Who is ready to giggle and splash with Marielli?

An update received in the fall of 2015 states that Marielli is now living with a foster family. She is reported to be a healthy little girl who rarely gets sick. Compared to children of the same age, Marieli is still very delayed. She does crawl, stand, and walk with assistance. Marielli is cooperative with her caregivers, but rarely talks and says few well-pronounced words. She is happiest when her caregivers play with her, offer her toys, or hug her. Marielli has quite an appetite and eats a wide range of foods. There is a small hole in her palate, so some foods are difficult for her to eat. It is said that she is receiving rehabilitation training, but no details were given. Marielli has a fear of meeting strangers and her caregivers say she has an introverted personality.

Marielli’s current agency also has a $3000 grant available for qualified families.

Bree

PRC
possible Cerebral palsy, club feet

Listed: November 20, 2015

Bree is a beautiful young girl who just turned 10 years old. She came to the orphanage when she was about 3 years old. She was diagnosed with club feet, but watching her video brings up the possibility of CP. Bree is bright, observant, and a very sweet girl. She gets around with a walker, but very slowly. She is able to care for herself, but may need some assistance in the bathroom.  Bree desperately needs a good evaluation, physical therapy, and whatever braces or splints that will help her mobility. Bree is a good student, and enjoys playing with other kids. She is so eager to have a family of her own. Bree’s cognitive skills are fine, her speech is fine, she just needs help getting around. Please make her dream of a family come true! Video is available.

Jamison

JamisonBoy, born 2013
PRC
meningomyelocele

Jamison recently turned two years old. Jamison was found abandoned at the door of the orphanage as a newborn. He was born with a meningomyelocele which was surgically corrected before he was a month old. Jamison now walks independently (although he is a little bow-legged) and has bowel and bladder control so it seems the surgery was quite successful. His current diagnosis is rickets, a vitamin deficiency that can be corrected with good nutrition.

Jamison has been living with a foster family where he is doing well. He likes to play with his foster grandparents and is attached to them. He likes playing with toy cars and enjoys going outside. Jamison is described as a cheerful little boy who likes to sing, talk, and is energetic. Could Jamison be the son you’ve been looking for?

Down syndrome / hernia

Listed: November 19, 2015

Ennis is a very handsome little guy who recently turned 2 years old! When he was brought to the orphanage, at about 8 months of age, he was very ill with pneumonia. They found he has Down syndrome, and a hernia, which has not been repaired. Ennis lives with a foster mother, who loves him very much.

Ennis has good fine motor skills. He loves to be outdoors, and loves his foster mama! He is imitating words, and his receptive speech is typical for a 2 year old…he hears what he wants to hear.

Kevin

KevinBoy, born March 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?

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?

Romeo is an energetic, outgoing little boy. He was abandoned approximately a year after he was born and was diagnosed with Down syndrome upon admission to the orphanage.

He can understand what adults say to him, respond to simple requests asking for objects, and wave goodbye. He can now say “mom” and his caregivers are continuing to improve his speech. 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.

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.

Sweet Frank recently turned six years old. Frank is in a province that is very convenient for traveling families.

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.

Sadie

Sadie (1)

Sadie (2)Girl, born March 2010
PRC
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

Maggie (2)

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

Listed: Oct 1, 2015

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?

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?

Hudson

HudsonBoy, born April 2013

Hudson is almost 2.5 years old. He was abandoned just after his birth and has been raised in an orphanage. Hudson was born with microtia (ear deformities) but his hearing is not affected. He is saying words, responds to requests from others, likes to play with musical toys and is reported to be clever. Hudson’s physical development is age-appropriate. We met Hudson in his orphanage in late June. He was a little nervous to be the center of attention from so many strangers, but we got a sense of who he is and we liked him! Maybe Hudson is the son you’ve been searching for?

Graceann is a precious little girl who was found abandoned when she was 2 years old, and was diagnosed with spastic CP. She has had surgery and is receiving therapy to help her walk. Graceann’s file refers to her medical issue as “poor brain development”, which is a poor description of CP.

She is described as a smart girl who is confident, happy, and loves to laugh. She can speak (and be understood), although she is not as noisy as some of the other kids! Graceann is a sweet, and loving girl who wants a family of her own.

Keegan

KeeganBoy, born May 2010
PRCKeegan2
Strabismus, speech delays, possible mild hydrocephalus

 

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”. By the time he turned 4 years old, he was talking, but adults were not able to understand what he said. Keegan has strabismus (crossed eyes), and has difficulty seeing things up close. He needs an eye exam, and possibly glasses to correct the strabismus and any vision issue. A CT scan showed possible mild hydrocephalus, which has not required any treatment at this time. 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!
