Corban

Corban-001Boy born March, 2009
PRC
Down syndrome

 

Corban’s physical capacity and mental development are delayed comparatively, due to his Down syndrome. As he grows older he has learned to roll over, crawl, stand by holding onto supports and walk by holding onto rails. Now he can walk forward with one of his hands led, he can distinguish familiar people and strangers. Seeing familiar people he can smile and greet them. He knows to be cooperative when dressed, give the clothes when asked, is a lovely little boy.

Corban is gentle, quiet, has a ready smile. He has Down syndrome, but it does not influence his happy life. He likes to play with toys, listen to music, can wave arms following rhythms which looks very adorable. He is willing to play games with kids, likes toys making sound, will laugh aloud when playing happily. Seeing strangers he will cry noisily because of being unfamiliar with them in the beginning. He can play with you gradually, is integrated into the games you bring to him, is a sensible good child!

Samuel has Down syndrome, an undescended testicle & flat feet. He also has a functional heart murmur that does not require therapy. He is integrated in a room with healthy children. He walks independently. He can drink out of a cup but still requires assistance with feeding. He carries our simple verbal instructions.  He seeks out the company of adults. His development is delayed in all areas.

UPDATE March 2014:
Samuel is now living in a foster home. His foster mother is a retired school teacher and she shared her opinion that Samuel would do very well in an adoptive family.
He is attending a day program for children with special needs where he is receiving basic academic instruction and therapy. He is working on becoming more independent with life skills. He is not currently talking, but he is able to express his wants and needs using gestures and nonverbal communication. His foster mother is encouraging him to vocalize more and make sounds so that he can learn to say words. He enjoys playing with other children and is not aggressive. He responds to verbal directions. He lives in the foster home with one other child and they are good friends. When he’s at the playground, he seeks out older children to play with. His foster mother reports that he enjoys eating sandwiches and drinking sweet tea. She is doing everything possible to prepare him for life with a forever family, as it is her hope that he will one day have a permanent adoptive family of his own!

Isabelle #2-2

Isabelle Sept 2013 (1)Girl, Born February 2002

Down syndrome

From her medical records:   The child is in a very good general condition. Elementary thinking processes are observed. She can’t speak but pronounces sounds and combinations of sounds: ba-ba, etc. that are completely random. She knows her name and reacts when called. She carries out elementary orders. She is not oriented for place and time. Her attention is unstable, her memory is mechanic.

In emotional aspect the child is calm, merry and playful. She enjoys the attention that she is paid and actively seeks it. She easily enters into interaction with the children and the adults in the orphanage. She has friends among the children and prefers to play with them. She reacts actively in musical classes – makes rhythmical movements, but almost doesn’t play with toys and prefers to put them in her mouth or toss them.

The child walks independently and carries out the orders of the physical therapist – crouches, stands up. She already eats by herself. She doesn’t signal about her physiological needs and is taken care of entirely by the personnel of the orphanage.

The child is being taught to put her clothes on and take them off on her own. The training for gaining life skills continues.

Single moms and large families welcome, easy travel!

Dawn #17-1

Girl, born 2001

Down syndrome

Update May 2012:
Dawn lived in an orphanage until she was three, when they moved her to an institution.

She just started walking a couple of months ago. She enjoys interacting with adults and playing with toys. Her favorite activities and toys revolve around music. She understands what is said to her but does not have any meaningful speech at this time. She reacts very positively to attention, smiles and cheers when adults interact with her. She attends a class at the institution, but does not go to school outside of the institution. She has not had the opportunity to experience many of the ordinary activities that other children her age are naturally exposed to due to the length of time she’s been institutionalized. She doesn’t have any medical or behavioral concerns. She just needs a family willing to look past her age to see her potential!

From a missionary who visited with him in August 2010:  “Sean was found abandoned by the riverside at the age of 4 months.  Sean is doing super and is well loved by his nannies!”

Update from 2012:
After his rehabilitation we feel his physical development is very good, he can clearly call father and mother, can sit alone, stand alone, can walk with holding something. He can not walk alone steadily, can feed himself snacks without help, good appetite, likes playing with other children sitting on the floor, occasionally he will challenge his favorite toys with other children. He is very favorable, and we hope him can find a family sooner to have parents to love him to live happier life.

Brett #19-1

Boy, Born August 23, 2001

Diagnosis: Down Syndrome, Severe lagging behind in his development, Alopetio areata

Brett was born premature at home and taken to an open field, where he was abandoned. He was there for 6 hours before being rescued and taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for shock, hypothermia, bug bites all over his body and difficulty breathing. Once released from the hospital, he was placed in an orphanage and later transferred to a mental institution, where he lives today.  From a physical standpoint, he suffered several bouts of bronchitis and other sicknesses as a young child. He does have alopecia (hair loss), but does not have any other health problems at this time. Based on one of the video clips, it appears that Brett is able to pop his hip out of socket, as his can turn his leg at an unnatural angle.   He can walk and move freely around in his environment.

 

Brett suffers from many delays as a result of spending over 10 years in an institutionalized setting.   He walks, plays with toys, communicates using gestures and interact with adults at will. He is NOT aggressive.   The staff cares for all his basic needs and he is not receiving any academic instruction or any noted therapies at this time.

 

Several photos and videos of Brett from December 2012 are available.
