Both girls have good hand/eye coordination and can reach for and grasp a toy/object and move it to their mouth. The girls are placed in adaptive chairs in the main group area so that they can observe and interact with other children, which they enjoy.

After she got comfortable with her new surroundings, she was polite and could get along well with people. At the age of 6 years, she could go up and down stairs holding onto something and could pick her favorite toys, but her language development was delayed. She could greet adults positively. At the age of 8 years, her motion of both upper limbs was not good and her walking position was not normal. She could wash her hands, could put on and take off her clothes independently, and could button and unbutton. She is now receiving special education in the center, can recognize common colors and shapes, can participate in some simple activities with kids, and can read some short children’s songs with teachers and friends, but she cannot read alone.

Kristopher #4-5

KristopherDOB: 2010
Diagnosis: congenital cataract of both eyes and congenital glaucoma
Cytomegaloviral Infection that was passed to him from his birth mother

 

Kristopher is 1 year old. He’s had 2 eye surgeries already and needs surgery for both cataracts. He’s been seen by an opthamologist 10 times since arriving at the orphanage when he was 4 months old.

 

He is just beginning to learn to crawl. He has good head control and attempts to pull himself up. He is making combinations of sounds. He picks up toys and moves them closer to him.  He enjoys interactions with caregivers and smiles when they come close to him.   He expresses his pleasure by babbling to get their attention and then cheering when they respond. He laughs loudly and plays with toys with initiative. He is beginning to interact with other children.  He is receiving physical therapy, speech therapy and basic instruction to foster his social development.

 

UPDATE (April 2012):  

Kristopher is doing very well. In the new videos of him, he is tracking objects, playing with toys and saying “mama”!
He does have cataracts and would benefit from lens replacement surgery. The orphanage is currently seeking funds to have this done ASAP so that his development is not hindered by his vision problems. He is still very young and a family starting the process now could have him home before his 3rd birthday.

 

UPDATE Jan 2014:
Kristopher currently lives in a family style group home with several other children. He’s receiving therapy daily. Updates on his development are coming soon.

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.

Joesph needs to be adopted PRIOR to his birthday in October 2015!

From someone who met him in 2013:
Joseph is an older boy I met this past July who lives in a foster care apartment within his orphanage with two older sisters and three younger siblings. He attends a middle school in the area. Joseph excels in his Art classes and his art is displayed around his foster home and the walls of his bedroom. His foster mom was very proud of his accomplishments and made sure we didn’t leave without seeing his Artwork first! Joseph seemed a little shy but we were told he does hope to be adopted. I imagine he would smile a lot more after some braces. He may be a little self conscious of his teeth but his face lights up when he talks about his Artwork and I was able to catch a small shy smile.

Todd #21-12

 ToddTodd 2010 (1)Age: 8
Diagnosis: hydrocephalus (shunt has been installed), spina bifida aperta, agenesis of the left kidney, fragile bones and strabismus
 
Todd can sit independently. He talks and easily carries on conversations with adults. His intellectual development is right at the “normal” level on testing. He has a caregiver that works 1:1 with him daily.
Families who have visited the orphanage where he lives report that he is a very smart and friendly little boy. He is able to carry on a conversation and answer questions appropriately and plays hand held video games.
From a family who visited with him in September 2013:    ” We had a chance to meet this little boy at our childrens’  orphanage last week. He is a very smart and vibrant little boy. My heart breaks at the thought that if he is not adopted, he will be sent to an institution to live out his days. This boy needs a mom and dad to care for him and tell him he is loved and valued.  I just know his family is out there! “
Update, 2015:
He has so much character that he impresses greatly anyone who meets him. He acquires some new skills over time but as he gets older, his motivation for developing further is more and more dependent on the attention he gets from adults. He understands that some children get adopted and thus get a family. Whenever he happens to meet an adoptive family visiting a child in his orphanage, he tells them he would like to have a family, too. Growing up, he feels both the lack of a family and the need for one more and more heavily.

Jesse

new jesseJesse

Boy, born January 2010
PRCjesse on tricycle Blind

Three year old Jesse is a beautiful little boy who resides a specialized foster care home for blind and visually impaired children. It is small home with only five children and the carers are specially trained to work with blind children. He is being taught life skills and self-care that will help him prepare for adoption and eventually independent living.

While this is a great opportunity, life has not been so fortunate for Jesse. He was abandoned at the gates of his orphanage when he was 9 months old. His blindness was caused by an untreated eye infection, and he was so ill he was sent to a palliative care home to die. He arrived a very sick and frightened little boy but was nursed back to health and given the opportunity to gain confidence and trust others around him. He is currently healthy with no further medical problems but is delayed in some areas of his development such as walking and feeding himself.

Jesse is now a happy child, interested and aware in all that is around him. In the absence of sight, he uses other senses to explore the world. He is quite timid in nature but likes to be around other children and his carers. He is sometimes uncertain when trying new things but enjoys praise and attention, so this motivates him to keep going. He would be a wonderful son with a great future but just needs his family to find him.

Some recent updates on Jesse, speech is making an appearance and Jesse is saying bye,bye and waving when his carers leave. He is eating a good variety of food now and sleeping much better than when he arrived at the foster home. Jesse communicates what he wants and doesn’t want by nodding and shaking his head. He can move himself around the room and onto furniture to get to a comfortable spot for a nap! He has been practicing with his walker and has started with physical and occupational therapy to take his walking from aided to independent.

Videos available for inquiring families.

Michael SN.26

 Boy, Born December 7, 2001
Latin America  SN.26
Diagnosis: Down syndrome, Hypothyroidism,  Language delay, Moderate mental delay

 

Michael says “HI MOM, do you see me?  I’m waiting for you!”   Michael is a handsome, happy, and active little boy!    He has been blessed to be very loved and well taken care of!  But here he is waving to his new mama, wherever she may be!  FULL MEDICAL and SOCIAL RECORDS available.   Michael is described as very loving and affectionate.  He is well adjusted and attached to his caregivers.  He is very active and physically capable…a typical boy! He receives therapy regularly and continues to work on his speech.  Please consider Michael!  His adoption will open doors for so many more children in this wonderful, but small, program!

From his caregivers:  Michael attends a school for children with special needs.  He has been in the orphanage since he was 2 1/2 years old.  Michael is very affectionate and has achieved a certain level of independence.  He demonstrates an ability to adapt quickly in various situations and has great capacity to give and receive affection.  He is working on improving his pronunciation.

Update Feb 2012: (further records available on development)
He is a child with fast adaptation to new situations, however when he gets confidence and trust to somebody, he has demanding and resistant behavior when somebody don’t do what he wants. The lack of an appropriate way to express his ideas, emotions and thoughts, generates emotions like sadness and frustration; this usually can be manifested in situations who are demanding.

Michael is a happy child, likes to show his affection, affectionate and with big desires of attention. His social development corresponds to mild retardation. In self-reliance activities his performance is independent, for which he only requires slight supervision. In activities which involve expressive and written language he still requires support.

Michael’s country is *beautiful* to visit, and is rich in culture and history.   Amazing trip no matter what time of year!

Tanner #31-1

Tanner 2014Boy, Born July 2001

Down syndrome, deafness, strabismus

Tanner was transferred to a group home in 2014. He is very small for his age and has delays in all aspects of his development. While he has an official diagnosis of deafness, he does respond to some sounds, so it is thought that he has some degree of hearing loss, but that he is not completely deaf. He does not have any speech, but he does respond to some basic commands and also to hand gestures. It is possible that many of his delays could be compensated for once his hearing issues are addressed.

Tanner attends a school for children with special needs. He doesn’t have problems following the rules in class and at school. He is calm and usually smiling. He is the favorite of the children at school. He is not aggressive and doesn’t get irritated by the other children. His expressive speech is not developed.

Adam #16-1

Adam 2014_2DOB: 2001
Down syndrome, autistic traits

YAY!!!!!!  A new photo of Adam!

 

Adam has lived in a mental institution since shortly after his 4th birthday. Visitors to the institution have described it as very nice and more like a nice hotel than a mental institution. The children are well cared for and have many opportunities to experience things. Yet Adam is still missing the love and attention that comes with having a family of his own.

Adam is 10 years old. He walks and his gross motor skills are well developed. He does not talk at this time but does follow verbal directions. He feeds himself with a spoon but still requires some assistance with dressing. He plays with toys and enjoys music time, but prefers to play alone instead of with the other children. He is not aggressive toward himself nor others and is described as “a calm child”. He does the stereotypical rocking back and forth when sitting, which is a common “orphanage behavior”. He attends school in the local village. He’s in a special education class. He is not interested in most school activities, though he does enjoy music time.

UPDATE DEC 2014:
Adam is currently living in a group home. He walks independently and goes up and down stairs, but is very careful and always seeks support before acting. He electively carries out orders and doesn’t react to his name. He plays for a short time and doesn’t seek contact with the children from the group. He has preferences for certain toys but doesn’t use them according to their purpose. He is apt to seclusion and avoids group activities. He is a calm child, reacts to emotional stimuli and differentiates different tones of the voice. During celebrations and musical activities he moves away to play on his own. He requires assistance for tasks such as dressing and toileting.

Spring

SpringGirl, born September 2012
PRC
Down syndrome, post-op CHD

Spring is 2 years old, and just adorable! She came into care when she was 7 months old (approximately), and was found to have Down syndrome as well as a congenital heart defect. She had surgery in 2013 to correct the TOF/ASD (Tetrology of Fallot / atrial septal defect) and recovered well. Spring is a very quiet, very sweet little one who really needs a caring, loving family, who will provide her the therapy she requires. Spring has the typical delays seen in little ones with Down syndrome, and being confined to her stroller/walker is not helping her. Spring’s left ear folds down a bit, but there is no known hearing issue involved. They have noted in her file that Spring’s favorite activity is “being held” (how sweet is that!?). This little one is ready for a family.
