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!

Addisyn

AddisynGirl, born March 2011
PRC
motor delays

Addisyn is an adorable little girl who came into care when she was 2 years old, and was found to be thin, with little strength in her hands and feet. With the care of her nannies, she gained some weight, and soon was in good health. They noticed she was able to stand and walk a bit with assistance, but not on her own. A CT of her brain showed no abnormalities. As of her report (in October 2013), she was still walking only with assistance. They assumed at that time that her intelligence was not equal to her peers. In an update from 2/2015 Addisyn is not talking and still unable to walk unassisted. They estimate her physical and cognitive development at about the level of a 15 month old child. Addie is a sweet and loving little girl, who always wants to join in with the other kids in play. The agency has several photos and video of this precious girl. She needs a family to help her reach her full potential.

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.

Down syndrome, Cleft Palate, bilateral ear deformity, growth delays, developmental delay

Listed: Dec 21, 2013

Tesia has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome, but a prospective family needs to be open to the possibility of a different medical diagnosis as Tesia exhibits many characteristics of children who have been diagnosed with Treacher Collins, although TC is not mentioned specifically in her record. Tesia was found abandoned at around 10 days old. She is a timid, shy and quiet little girl who likes to play with toys especially balls, sand and slides. Tesia is able to walk and is reported to be toilet trained. She can search for the source of a sound and can make sounds on her own, but did not use words as of the report date. Tesia likes to be cuddled and spoken to. She is waiting for a family of her own who can snuggle with her as they tell her “I love you!”Tesia updated photo

From an April 2015 UPDATE: Tesia can walk, run and go up and down the stairs. She can dress herself and goes to the bathroom on her own. She goes to the special education class in the SWI. She likes to go to school and gets along well with other classmates. As of today, Tesia is very active with quick responses and more speech. However, she speaks in a low voice. She has a strong ability to imitate and follows the teachers to do exercises. After class, she will play on the swings with her favorite friend. She will cry when she is blamed for wrong doings. When she sees the other kids cry, she will comfort them by patting them on the back. Tesia loves to play in the ball pits and on the trampoline. She likes someone to play with her and talk to her.

Fern

Fernuodated filepicture2Fernupdated file pictureGirl, born Aug 2010
Cerebral palsy
PRC

She can laugh aloud. She waves her head when happy. She grasps little toys with left hand and put them into her mouth to bite them. She can sit alone for a short time. She looks around when someone speaks to her.

Fern has a good physical state, has balanced nutrition, has a routine life every day, good living habits but is choosy about food.

From an adoptive parent who saw her in April 2014:
Let me start by saying my heart broke for this little one. She is unable to sit up or feed herself. She cannot walk. She was brought to me in the crib. She smiled when I spoke to her and she grabbed my hand when I placed mine in hers. She laughed when we tickled her and she seemed to enjoy my attention. The nannies say she can smile and laugh when tickled. She can chew and swallow food. She has a familiar caretaker and smiles when she is with her. She is described as a very content child. She is easy going.

Note: Fern’s updated file pictures do show her sitting up, although she may be supported by leaning on the wall in one picture. She desperately needs a family who can get her out of the crib and into therapy so she can be all that she can be!

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!

Hallie Anne is a precious little girl who recently turned 4 years old. She has club feet, which are being treated with corrective shoes. Hallie Anne also had a diagnosis of dislocated hip, and a heart murmur was detected with no intervention mentioned in her report. There is the often-used diagnosis of “brain paralysis” in her file. Hallie Anne lives with a foster family, and, considering her hip and feet issues, was developing well as of the file date (late 2013) She was walking with one hand held, loved to play hide and seek, and if she was thirsty, would locate her water bottle. Hallie Anne loves to play with other children, and warms up to strangers after a short while. Hallie Anne will certainly benefit from some physical therapy, and the love of her own family!

Lollie

Reyima OCT formal-Lollie-Guardian Angel

Girl, born May 2011
H-C
Siezures; other undiagnosed issues

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.

Update Jan 2015:
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.

Marsha #4-62

MarshaMarshaAge: 5
Diagnosis: polymalformative syndrome, chromosomopathy and developmental delays. Right-sided neuritis of the acoustic nerves. Right-sided microthia.

 

Marsha’s birth mother was just 16 years old when Marsha was born and raised her for 3 years. After several hospital stays, Marsha was placed in the orphanage. She has delays in all aspects of her development, but has been making steady progress since entering the orphanage.

Update 2015:
Marsha walks independently. She overcomes medium-sized obstacles, climbs up and down the furniture, and goes up and down stairs, leading by hands. She claps with hands, laughs aloud at tease, and smiles to beloved people from the staff that has sympathies to, goes to them and looks for their attention, touches them, turns her head, makes a chain of syllables. Her games are stereotypical. She comforts herself by rocking and rubbing her head against the wall. Marsha eats slowly and with appetite. She is not picky for food.

Marsha does not speak. She does not follow verbal instructions. She shows willingness to communicate despite her limited language skills and gradually observes tendency towards activity and initiative in nonverbal communication.

Gradually, with the help of adults Marsha is trying to master skills. She likes when special attention is paid to her. Her attention remains unstable, quickly distracted. Her emotions are not always adequate to the situation. She is interested in her mirror image. She cannot recognize herself in the mirror. Her self-control is related to the development of sense-motor schemes and abilities to be used their effects impacting on the objects. She does not regulate her physiological needs.

Maddie

I have a miracle makermaddiechristmas16Maddie update 2015Girl, born March 2014
H-C

Listed: Jan 13, 2015

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.

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.

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.

sosieGirl, born 2012
Delayed development of more complex forms of communication and entertainment affect hypersensitivity tactile, visual and auditory, psychomotor hyperactivity, attention and memory deficits. She requires ongoing speech therapy.

Listed: Dec 7, 2016

Sosie constantly acquires new language skills and communication, but the process is delayed. She can understand and follow simple commands like “lie down, fetch, enter” etc. She understands simple questions asked of her and can provide adequate answers “yes / no”. 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 can imitate a 2-3-element sequence of movements of an adult. She can not classify objects. She is able to track the course of events in the simplest of illustrated stories. 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.

Dena #

debbieGirl, approx 2 years old

Dena has bronchopulmunal dysplasia, asthma, and hydrocephaly. Fortunately, Dena’s hydrocephaly is not developing, and last December a neurosurgeon determined she would not need surgery and that her head growth was normal. It is possible Dena also has an endocrine disorder; she is currently being treated by an endocrinologist. Dena was born very early, weighing only 1.3 pounds, and has vision difficulties because of this. Her ophthalmologist recommends surgery due to the drooping of her right eyelid, but says that there is no evidence of retinopathy.

Despite the early challenges, Dena continues to hit developmental milestones, although she is delayed. She loves the attention of adults, and engages well with her environment. Dena smiles when interacting with others and has begun pronouncing syllables and sounds. She began walking at 18 months and is now very active. An assessment by a Bulgarian agency suggests that Dena has the physical and mental potential to overcome her developmentally delays.

Eliza #

eliza-video-still-april-2016-sept-2016Eliza was born preterm at 29 weeks in February 2014. She is a healthy little girl with cerebral palsy (mild spastic quadriparesis) and developmental delay.

Eliza can sit, pull to stand, walk with support, and is learning to take steps on her own. She grasps and holds objects with both hands, knocks blocks together, and is able to play with toys independently. Eliza responds to visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation and shows appropriate attention span for activities of interest to her. She vocalizes combinations of sounds, but, at present, communicates primarily in a nonverbal manner. Eliza reacts when spoken to but does not yet understand all that is being said to her. At times she exhibits stereotypic rocking.

Eliza is a peaceful little girl who eats and sleeps well. She accepts the company of other children and allows physical contact with familiar adults, freely smiling and laughing in her interactions with them.

Update September 2016: Per our in-country representative, Eliza began to take steps independently without support at 18 months of age. Although unsteady, she is currently able to walk for short distances on her own. Eliza now imitates sounds and repeats syllables. She receives daily physical therapy. This sweet little girl would greatly benefit from additional therapies, and overall, from the support and love of a forever family.
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.

She can eat and drink without help.   She is ready for normal life and needs a family willing to learn how to take care of her.

Update:  Jenny has a problem with her speech because of the tracheotomy tube but the doctors said that this tube is little to the side so as not to damage the vocal cords. In their opinion she doesn’t has proper care of speech therapist and if she will has more exercises her speech can be very good. Jenny is very smart and learn who to connect the  tracheotomy tube by herself and she even helped another child when this tube was disconnected. She is easy making contact with other kids and adults.  She attends kindergarten at the hospital. She likes books, puzzles and drawing pictures.  She can eat and drink without help. Her  bio parents are healthy and her bio mother didn’t drink alcohol during pregnancy. Per Jenny’s doctors, she only needs to be connected to the respiratory tube at night.

Barbie is 4 years old and she is a calm and smiling girl. She pronounces syllables and speaks single words. She can communicate her needs verbally and she understands all requests addressed to her. She is willing to help. When she is afraid she cries, but silently. A hug from her foster mom or foster dad helps her to become calm, and then she feels safe. She is afraid of big groups of people and of loud shouting or talking. When her stress is overwhelming she destroys toys or things, gnaws the wall and shoes or books. She is afraid of the sounds of a vacuum cleaner and mixer. Her foster family is trying to help her alleviate her fears with these objects, putting her hands on them (of course when they are switched off). She is willing to share her toys. Barbie likes to play with animals, she likes flowers and compose bouquets. She likes to play with blocks and draw.

She started to walk at age 2. Her gait was “waddling”. In her biological home she was neglected; nobody exercised with her or allowed her to develop her gross motor skills because of her health problem. She was diagnosed with muscular tension and torn hip. Now she is under rehabilitation therapy. She was burned with boiling water, she has a scar on her right forearm.

She still uses diapers. The foster family is trying to teach her to use the potty. She can put on shoes and socks by herself. She is learning to wear other clothes. She can eat and drink by herself. She is very bonded with her older sister.

Her mother has Huntington’s disease. The girls’ father is an alcoholic and has used the physical and psychological violence against them and their mother.  Both girls are believed to have been victims of abuse by their father.
