From a family who met her summer 2015:  This little girl is wonderful! I have never met a child with so much personality and spunk. She absolutely loves people and she is so desperate for attention. I held her for most of our visitation time one day. If I tried to put her down she demanded that I pick her up again and then she would kiss all over me. She just wanted someone to be near her. Everyday when my husband would walk through the playground gates she would get a stern look on her face and point at him and then motion for him to come to her… NOW:) She would smile from ear to ear when he acknowledged her. You can not help but laugh when you are with her. Even the cold and distant nannies couldn’t keep a solemn expression on their faces when we interacted with her.

She is in need of urgent dental care! I have never seen such decayed teeth before. I am not sure why her mouth is so much worse than all the other children but her mouth is really concerning. She can stand on her own but struggles to lift and bend her legs when she is bearing weight on them. She has a little walker that she does wonderful with. She can walk along a bench by holding on to it but we never saw her walk independently. From what I could tell she does not have any limitations of her upper body.

We never witnessed her show any aggression towards any of the children. When I would sit on the bench holding my daughter she would try to climb in my lap as well, but she never tried to harm my daughter or push her out of the way. She is very hungry for attention and for the love of a family. She would make a wonderful daughter and I am sure she would provide you with a life time of laughter.

This child has significant facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).  This is a cautionary disclosure only.  Families should research the varying impacts of this condition.

HIV+

Janessa is a beautiful girl, born in December of 2008, who has had a lot of loss in her life. Janessa’s caregivers say that she is very quiet and introverted, but that she has good language comprehension. She scores very well on her Chinese tests and average in mathematics. With some tutoring and repeated practice, Janessa can master concepts. She can do two-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, decimal points, area, length, time, and more. She can read elementary school comics and story books on her own, and can complete a 100-word composition. Janessa can draw animals and flowers. She makes time to finish her homework each day and, if she doesn’t understand the question, she will ask the teacher. Janessa will sometimes play with other girls, but her friends say she is a little eccentric sometimes and her friends don’t want to play with her. Most of time, Janessa reads alone or watches other children play. When she’s not reading, Janessa likes watching TV and playing on the computer. She also enjoys outdoor activities, and going to the supermarket to buy her favorite snacks. When Janessa is unhappy, she will cry. She is sometimes bullied by her peers, but she is forgiving and will play with those peers not long after the fact. In general, Janessa gets along well with her peers in the orphanage and she is polite to everyone. She is happy to have a lot of caretakers who care about her.

Janessa is HIV+ and she takes antiviral drugs every day. She is a good sleeper and is not a picky eater, but she loves snacks and watermelon best! Janessa’s motor skills are normal and she is coordinated. She enjoys running, jump roping, and playing outdoors. Janessa has strong self-care skills. She can help sweep and clean the floors, and wash and hang the clothes. Janessa always helps and she makes sure to take good care of her own health. Janessa needs a loving family she can trust and one who will love her forever, as she has gone through enough loss in her biological family. Could your family be Janessa’s forever?

Down syndrome

Nathaniel is healthy, but has had nutritional deficits, most likely related to emotional and safety needs. We are pleased with his healthy head of hair now, that shows he’s so much healthier. Nathaniel clearly needs glasses, and we think this would open up the world for him, but where he lives we’ve not been able to get him tested properly. He doesn’t use words to communicate, but understands words spoken to him. He has high needs for touch, cuddles, and would suit a family where those things are given freely and often, and where he can bond with his people. Nathaniel has grown in confidence and security in recent months, shown by him initiating more independent play. He is kind to his peers and loving to the adults in his life. He is sensitive, cries to express his needs, and what he wants more than anything in the world is time.

Nathaniel lives in a small group home, and is making great progress.  Other pictures and additional information are available, for interested families.

A specific adoption agency is currently offering a grant of $1500 towards his adoption.

These sweet sisters participated in the summer hosting program in August of 2018 and were very well behaved girls that got along very well with others. They were kind, considerate, and would do well in a family. These girls had a family at one point, but the family had to back out. Teresa has reached out, begging for help in finding them a family. Teresa and Tia would love to have a forever family of their own and we hope that a family will come forward for them very soon!

Down syndrome, CHD

CO-8

Listed: March 2020

This eight-year-old boy may be shy at first but is full of love inside and is looking for a loving family to help him externalize it. If you want to see Maxwell happiest, play some music and ask him to dance. Through the sounds of the songs he likes, you can always bring a smile out of him. One of his favorite activities is to ride around in the car while listening to his favorite tunes, as the constant movement of the car gives him a feeling of safety.

Maxwell has a diagnosis of Down syndrome, risk of low size, heart disease correction, adenoid hypertrophy and daytime and nighttime enuresis and encopresis. Due to his diagnosis he needs constant attention and support to get through daily tasks such as brushing his teeth and getting dressed. He doesn’t usually speak verbally. Maxwell has a hard time relating to kids his age therefore needs a lot of encouragement on making new friendships and maintaining them. With the constant affection and support of a loving family, Maxwell will exceed his potential and become the wonderful boy he is supposed to.

Michael, Finn and Felix are three brothers who love to play together. Felix is the youngest. He is a charismatic 2-year-old, who likes playing with balls and running around. He is much of an explorer in the making. He also enjoys watching videos for kids such as Peppa Pig. Felix gets along well with his peers and with adults. He loves demonstrations of affection such as hugs. He sometimes finds it hard to share his toys with other kids but is working hard with his caregivers to improve this. He is a fast learner. 

Michael is the middle child. He is a very active 10-year-old who loves sports, but soccer beyond all. His favorite subject in school is math and physical education and needs a little extra work in subjects that involve writing and reading. Michael likes to spend his time playing soccer, with marbles or playdoh. He is an animal lover and finds dalmatian dogs the most beautiful of all. Michael is very protective of his siblings; he is the happiest when he gets to spend time with them and is always looking out for them. Michael dreams of learning how to speak another language and to karate.

Finn is the oldest in this group of siblings. He is a 12-years-old who loves to laugh. He gets especially happy when his brother Michael blows his tummy and makes funny noises. He loves spending time with him. He likes to eat Yogurt and enjoys it when Michael spoon-feeds him. Finn is diagnosed with cerebral palsy with mils associated mental delay, dorsal scoliosis with generalized muscular atrophy, ligament hyperlaxity and severe delay in his cognitive development. Felix, Michael and Finn would do best in a family that have experience with kids. Their family need to be patient, very loving, and open to spend individual time with each of their kids in order to cover their different needs.

Joshua needs to be adopted prior to his birthday in November 2020!

Listed: Jan 2020

Joshua is such a handsome fellow with a bright smile. Those close to him say he is a lovely boy, very polite and keen to learn and be more independent.

Joshua has seen several of his friends adopted, and has asked repeatedly of staff when he will have a forever family. He understands what adoption means and longs for a family of his own.

In ICC’s care, Joshua has grown in confidence and ability. He is member of the Conductive Education group where he receives education and therapy to help him develop his abilities. Joshua has good communication skills, and expresses his opinions and wishes with his teachers, carers, therapists and friends. He enjoys learning, and is an active member of his education and therapy classes. He would benefit from speech and language therapy to help understand the cause of his “hoarse” voice.

Joshua has lots of learning potential, and really enjoys going to daily classes. He is able to concentrate during class, ask questions and respond appropriately. His education is behind due to his delayed opportunity to receive education. Joshua recognizes colors, animals and 40 characters. He can count and recognize numbers, and do simple math.

Joshua uses a wheelchair, and can move himself independently from chair to bed or bathroom without help.  He manages to get himself around in the wheelchair including a daily 30 minute trip to school!  He is able to pull himself up to stand at a table, and can sit unsupported on a stool.  He does have some high muscle tone which affects his legs and arms.  His hands are affected by the CP, but he is able to feed himself, brush his own teeth and do puzzles.  He can also dress himself independently.

Down syndrome

Beautiful Jolie likes helping her caretaker, especially with caring for the younger children. She has good motor skills and she likes to play with the other children outside. She is able to run and jump. Jolie can’t pronounce words clearly, but she is able to express her needs well. If she can’t be understood, she knows to use gestures. She goes to school in the special education class and knows some colors and shapes. She is good about answering the teachers’ questions and is said to be good-spirited there. She is said to speak more under the encouragement of the teacher and not as much in front of strangers.

Jolie likes to listen and dance to the music, perform, and play with the children who are in the same special education class. Jolie likes performing/dancing while listening to familiar music, drawing, watching cartoons, swinging, and playing with toy blocks. She is not a picky eater and her favorite food is candy, but she can’t chew well and eats slowly due to her poor swallowing function. She is not able to chew meat well and she eats vegetables slowly. It takes her a long time to finish a meal. Jolie is closest to the caretaker who cares for her and her main teacher. She knows how to share her favorite toys and she has good self-care abilities. Jolie is able to put on and take off her clothes, brush her teeth, and toilet independently. Jolie was born with Down syndrome and trichiasis of the left eye. Agency staff have met Jolie a few years ago and had good things to say about her and how she was doing. She finally has a file and we can’t wait to see who her lucky forever family will be!

Joely has a $1500 grant available from her current adoption agency.

Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus

Magnolia is a precious little girl, who is described as being extroverted and sweet tempered. She is fairly active, talkative, and has quick reaction time. Magnolia enjoys singing and listening to music. She gets along well with others and likes playing outdoors with her friends and with toy cars. Magnolia lives with a foster family and though she likes to be cuddled by her foster grandfather, she is closest with her foster grandmother. She is a good sleeper and sleeps in her own bed. She is not a picky eater, though she has been spoiled by her foster grandparents who tend to hand-feed her and let her use a bottle to drink her drinks from. Magnolia’s favorite foods are meat, dumplings, noodles, vegetables, and fruits. Magnolia can walk independently. She was able to imitate words and say simple things like, “What is this?” Her intelligence was said to be delayed compared to her peers, but her orphanage also seems to say this about many children in their care.

In January of 2014, Magnolia received surgery for lumbar spinal meningocele and hydrocephalus. She had good recovery after the surgery, though she is not toilet trained. We are unsure if that is a result of her meningocele surgery or because she just hadn’t been trained yet, but a family should be prepared for her to be incontinent. An update from August (you can read the full update below) mentions that Magnolia has had a handful of seizures over the years. Magnolia has the sweetest little face with the cutest little voice.

Magnolia has a $2,500 agency grant for her adoption with a specific adoption agency. You have to watch her sweet videos!  The agency has several.

Down syndrome

When Meghan first entered her institute she had poor physique and digestion but under the nannies care she gradually improved. When she was 4 years old she was receiving some education, motor and language training. She crawled quickly and could stand and walk with support. She was extroverted and smiled a lot. She liked to play with friends, understood simple instructions, knew the names of body parts, could call “mom” and waved her hands to express “good-bye.”

In May 2018 it was reported that she could walk and run on her own. She used a spoon to feed herself, could follow simple instructions and could play with toys alone. Her intelligence was said to be delayed and although she couldn’t yet speak in full sentences she could say simple words like, “thank you” and understood other people.

2019 UPDATE: Meghan is said to be an active and cute girl who likes posing for pictures! She enjoys going out to play and interacting with other children. She can kick and bounce a ball, walk freely, feed and dress herself, dance, sing, and string beads. She understands her teacher’s instructions and imitates well.  Additional photos and video available.

Andy (2009), Izzy (2010) & Kayla (2013)

Listed: Oct. 2019

 

Andy and Izzy do not have any special needs.

Kayla has been diagnosed with mild mental delays, Other Nervous System Disorders in Diseases Classified Elsewhere and Neurological Status: Left Divergent Strabismus, Decreased Higher Cortical Functions.

 

Currently, Andy & Kayla are being raised together in a foster home, while Izzy is being raised in a different foster home in the same town. The children see each other often and want to be adopted together so that they can all live in the same home. The foster families do not speak the country’s native language in the home, so the children speak one language while at home and a 2nd language at school.

Andy tested at age appropriate levels on all psychological and emotional testing. He does well in school and does not have any behavioral concerns. He has age appropriate friendships, social skills, communication skills, and self-help skills. He likes to play football and eat french fries. When he grows up, he wants to be a policeman.
Izzy tested at age appropriate levels on all psychological and emotional testing. She does well in school and does not have any behavioral concerns. She has age appropriate friendships, social skills, communication skills, and self-help skills. She enjoys playing outside with her friends. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher.
Kayla has speech delays that make it difficult to understand what she is saying. She is working with a speech therapist and learning to make the correct sounds so that her words are more easily understood. She is very active and takes medication to control impulsive behaviors and to help her attention span. Her foster mother reports that her behaviors have greatly improved with the addition of medication. She is attending kindergarten and responds well to play based learning.
