Jubilee

jubileeJubileeGirl, 3 years old
H-C
Cerebral palsy and temporal lobe epilepsy

Listed April 2015

Sweet Jubilee is doing well. She has cerebral palsy and is on medication to control her seizures. Jubilee was a severely malnourished baby when we first met her, but she has gained weight well and is now a chubby little lady. Jubilee cannot sit up or roll over on her own, but she is receiving therapy to help increase her strength. She loves to stare at faces and responds really well to touch; if she is crying, she is easily soothed by being held. Only recently has Jubilee started to smile and laugh, and it is adorable. Sometimes, she will do this in response to being tickled, but over the past couple of weeks, we have seen her smile come out even more easily. Often a simple greeting or quick cuddle are enough to bring out Jubilee’s smile and it is sure to brighten your day.

Noelia L10

noelia-2016Girl, 5 years old

Early antenatal central nervous system defect, microcephaly, cerebral palsy with a spastic feet paraparesis. Speech development delay. Lack of protein energy. Received primary latent hypothyreosis.

Listed: July 30, 2015

UPDATED 2016: Noelia has blue eyes and light brown hair. She is friendly, helpful, likes joking and laughing, strong will, adequate emotions and overall positive mood. She likes games with singing, she remembers and repeats movements. She has great interest in what is happening around her. She really likes individual consultations with specialists, enjoys walks – she walks with the help of walking frames. She has a good appetite and tries to talk, expresses interest in board games, but her focus is not firm, she has difficulty concentrating; speech delay, self-service skills like eating are well developed, but dressing up and going to the bathroom is problematic, probably due to the overbearing care of adults. Social worker says that she is doing much better than her diagnosis sounds.

Updated: Noelia is a tiny bit shy upon meeting strangers, but quickly loosens up. She smiled non stop during our whole visit, and loved playing with my phone to look at the pictures I took of her. She seems very bright! Noelia proudly showed us her bedroom, where she sleeps alone. She loves ponies! We brought her a “my little pony” type toy and she was thrilled. She took us upstairs to her room and put the pony with another one she already had there.

She walks alone without help, unless on stairs where she needs to hold on. She was not wearing any kind of leg brace. She is left handed and can write her name!

When I picked her up, she gently pushed my hair back from my face.

Sukie

Sukie July 2016Sukie was born in August 2014 at 37 weeks gestation via a difficult birth. She was hospitalized until March 2016 with the following diagnoses: CNS perinatal hypoxic-ischemic damage, spastic tetraparesis, bilateral paralytic esotropia, global development delay, secondary microcephaly with the potential of developing CP, and laryngeal stridor.

Listed: July 2016

When Sukie’s condition improved, she was moved into an orphanage where her caretakers believe that she understands certain things, such as being caressed. Sukie responds to adult interactions and grabs objects when handed to her.

From a family who met her in March 2017: Sukie is a sweet, beautiful girl. Though she cannot communicate verbally, she does make sounds if she is happy or sad, and will smile when tickled and returns a smile when she is enjoying herself. She likes being held, playing with toys, and listening to singing time. Though limited in mobility, having some problems fully controlling her motor skills and not being able to walk, she can stand up holding on to something stable, and she does crawl, getting to where she wants to go. She often came up to me and others, grabbed onto my clothing, and tried to crawl into my lap. She likes to touch faces and hair, and she really enjoys getting personal one on one attention.

Married couples only. Video available from the agency.

Jonie

Jonie (2) Jonie (1)Girl, born November 2011
PRC
Post-op cleft lip and palate; unsteady gait

3 year old Jonie is diagnosed with post-op cleft lip and palate and an unsteady gait (she was not quite walking at the time her file was prepared). Jonie loves to be held and would talk non-stop whenever someone held her. In fact, if she wasn’t the first one held, she would cry loudly in her crib. Smart girl knew how to get someone’s attention! When learning how to stand, she would laugh happily. Her favorite thing to do is to play outside. Jonie loved watching the children swing and her eyes were full of curiosity. When in the playroom, she always looked for her favorite toys and would sometimes get upset when she didn’t get her favorite toy. A hug from the aunties cheered her up! In March 2013, she had her cleft lip and palate surgery. It took her a little time to warm back up once she came back from surgery, but it wasn’t long and she was walking around and talking a lot again. Jonie loves going on the swing- the higher she goes, the happier she will be, often not wanting to stop. Jonie is an active, clever, lively, and lovely child in need of a forever family!

Emerlyse

PRC
vision impaired

Emerlyse is a sweet little girl who is 3 years old. She has no vision, and really needs a family. Emerlyse’s update from last fall said she was not walking unassisted, but would easily walk holding someone’s hand. She had not been trained to feed herself, but they were working on toilet training at that time. Emerlyse’s earlier photos show a bubbly, happy, and engaging little one. Her more recent photos show a different little girl…quiet, reserved, and a bit sad. Hopefully, they caught her on a bad day, but she most definitely needs attention and love. Emerlyse needs a family who will work with her, love her, and treasure her. And she needs them soon. We would love to see her smile again!

Hasini

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?

She usually communicates with single words and – increasingly – sentences consisting of a maximum of two words.

Because of the deficits in the field of motor skills, Sosie is not able to fit the pieces of a puzzle together or make a picture of two parts.

She also begin to show interest in the simplest, short poems.

Sosie shows significant facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome). This is not a diagnosis, but a cautionary disclosure.

Penelope was born prematurely at 29 weeks gestation in June of 2012 and has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus for which she currently has a working shunt, autism, and global delays. Penelope also has strabismus.
Her pediatrician noticed several symptoms of autism in Penelope’s social and emotional development fairly early, including low eye contact, repetitive stereotyped movements, lack of interest in books, not responding to her name, and being non-verbal.
Over time, Penelope has calmed down considerably and become more affectionate. She can walk holding an adult’s hand and loves to be snuggled. Penelope better relates to her caregivers and is showing increasing interest in her environment. She craves individual attention and her caretakers believe that she would show best progress in a one-on-one care setting.

 

Please note: Married couples only due to child’s court appointed guardian in this case.

Gretel does not crawl, she can turn onto her belly, goes to a kneeling position, on hands and knees, swings. Gretel is fed through a g-tube (surgery in February 2016), also takes a small amount of food or liquid with a teaspoon.

Gretel develops physically, has significantly improved eye contact; she is calm, serene, responds well to a massage, very fond of massage hands and feet, then reacts with laughter. Massage is a problem within the oral cavity and oral feeding. The girl does not like this, but the appropriate action (stimulation of chewing and swallowing) and quiet, slow feed, is making progress. She is now able to eat a small amount of mixed fruit or soup with a teaspoon.

Gretel begins to make sounds, they are not yet purposeful, the girl usually murmurs, laughs and cries.

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.

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.

Lollie is learning how to sit; when you put her in a sitting position, she can now sit for several seconds. She has an epileptic syndrome and is on medication for seizures, but has not had any seizures since being admitted to our care. She has a vision impairment, but with glasses is able to see much more of her world. Lollie is nonverbal, but she will make contented noises to express herself.

Lollie is an absolute princess who loves getting special attention from her caregivers and friends. She responds to voices and physical touch, often with a smile or contented noise. She is learning how to sit up on her own and is often put into a tripod position to practice. Even though she often keeps her head down while doing this, she can stay in this position for several seconds. She usually gets to practice sitting while her nannies do her hair – they will help her sit against their legs while they put the intricate braids in place. Lollie has an epileptic syndrome and is on medication for seizures, but rarely has any episodes that last more than a few seconds. She has a vision impairment, but with glasses is able to see much more of her world. Lollie seems to respond better to people that she knows; when she first meets someone, it often takes her a few days to warm up to them and begin to smile in response to their attention.

Maddie is a sweet little girl who has developmental delays. She has not been diagnosed with anything particular, but she does appear to have cerebral palsy of some degree. She prefers to keep her head tilted to one side and tends to be very stiff, however she does great at tummy time and will lift her head up to look around. Maddie also loves to be held and can easily be soothed when you pick her up for some cuddles.  Maddie does have a lot of muscle spasms, but it is currently unclear whether this is seizure activity. Despite her delays, Maddie is very observant of her environment; she can often be seen looking at those around her and she has gotten good at tracking people and objects with her eyes. Maddie cannot yet sit up on her own, but when put in a crawling position, she will often move her legs forward like she is trying to crawl. She also bears weight on her legs when put in a standing position. Maddie is an easy going baby, except sometimes at meal time when she does not want to eat, and she is very loved by her nannies. One particular nanny has a special love for Maddie. She says that Maddie reminds her of one of her sister’s kids, so she pays special attention to her. This nanny was very excited when we gave Maddie a new chair to help her keep her head straight; she even thanked us with a hug and a kiss. She was also very happy to learn therapy techniques to help Maddie and has been using these regularly.

Gabriella might have fragile bones but she has a mighty heart! She is currently living in a foster care center that focuses on caring for children with bone conditions. She is not currently getting pamidronate or any IV treatment for her condition as it is a difficult procedure in her home country. She has started to sit up on her own. It was scary for her but she kept on trying and is now a sitting expert and loves to be able to sit on her own. She is learning to feed herself and is also an expert at making a big mess when she does! But she is very happy to be learning more independence. She is described as being curious and social. Gabriella hasn’t had a bone fracture since the beginning of 2015. Gabriella will likely benefit immensely from having an IV treatment of bisphosphonates, such as pamidronate, every 3-6 months.

Harlow

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Congenital retinal degeneration, developmental delays

From the agency:
When the update came in, it was hard to read. But I powered through. Until I saw this:

Please describe his/her personalities in detail? No personality
No personality. No personality. I kept reading it over and over again. No personality. This cannot be so. Her referral, from two years ago, describes her as “giggles when she is touched; lovely when she smiles; enjoys that someone accompanies and plays with her.” Now, no personality.

In continuing to read the update, and comparing it to the two year old referral, it is pretty clear that Harlow has been forgotten. She does not go to school. She cannot perform any fine motor skills simply because she cannot see. She cannot perform most gross motor skills simply because she is given no chance to. She spends her days in her crib. Alone.

I am fairly certain that it should not read ‘no personality,’ but instead should read ‘no spirit,’ or ‘lost spirit,’ or ‘crushed spirit.’ It is not her personality that is lacking, but her spirit slipping away. She has been given up on by those around her, and has no other option but to give up on herself.

Harlow lives in dark, quiet solitude. No place for a child. She has lost hope. But we have not. We still see potential. We still see hope. And we will continue to share about Harlow until a family – HER family – sees it too.

The update is concluded with:

Anything else you think the family should know about this child? No
A response laden with hopelessness and doubt. A response lacking any type of love or compassion for this child. This soul whose spirit is in there somewhere, but if she stays where she is, will soon be gone forever.

Peggy

peggy-feb-2017Peggy was born in December 2014 with spina bifida. A VP shunt has been placed.

From a family who met her in March 2017: Peggy speaks and knows a lot of words, but doesn’t appear to use full sentences yet. Though shy, Peggy would do very well in her speech and communication in a family where she could develop further. She seems like a typical little girl, other than not being able to use her legs. She reacts and responds appropriately for her age. Peggy is very detail oriented, and loves to draw with a little sketch-it toy, which seems to be her favorite toy. She can wheel herself in a zipzac chair and would stay in it all day to move around if she were allowed. I could get her to laugh and smile often. She would follow me around in the zipzac chair and cried when we left.

Update February 2017: Peggy is a very affectionate and interactive little girl. She knows and uses the names of the children in her group, vocalizes functional words such as “here”, “bring”, and “give”, and follows single-step directions. Peggy enjoys playing with toys and games and is especially good at matching shapes and colors. She moves across the floor using her hands and is able to sit unsupported for a short period of time.

August 2015: Peggy is alert and tracks with her eyes. She has developed hand to hand and hand to mouth coordination and reaches for toys, but cannot yet hold them. Peggy appears to have head control, but needs support to sit. She regularly receives therapy.

Married couples only.
