Raine (7)Girl, born January 2014
PRC
Vision Impairment

Adorable Alisha was just six months old when she arrived at her specific care home, and we often fight over who gets to cuddle our baby girl. She is a very happy baby. She is always smiling and loves to be held. She is very strong and often rolls from her back to her tummy and then lifts her arms and legs, which makes it look like she is flying! Alisha is in our baby home, where she gets lots of love and attention from the nannies. She was born with cataracts but had surgery to remove them shortly after she came to her current placement. She can see a little and focuses in on bright toys and faces. We love this beautiful little girl! A volunteer also recently said: She can crawl or walk with a push toy or holding someone’s hand. She has glasses prescribed but is still getting used to them.

LibertyGirl, born July 2013
PRC
Congenital heart defect-ASD, microcephaly, developmental delays

Lovable Liberty is diagnosed as having refractive amblyopia (it is suggested she wear glasses), CHD-ASD, microcephaly, and mental delay. In December of 2014, Liberty joined a foster family. At the age of 19 months, she couldn’t talk, but was making the sounds yi and ah. Her foster mom said she can understand some words and she does make eye contact. Liberty is active and can quickly change positions from sitting to standing. She can walk independently. She likes playing at home and can carry a small bucket or stool when walking. Liberty likes to smile and she loves playing with her foster dad. She will pat his face to tease him. She is described as very hospitable. When visitors come, she will be a little shy at first and hide behind her foster parents. After a while, she will warm up and will laugh when being teased by the guests. She can stamp her feet in excitement and screech happily when she sees her foster mom coming back into the house after being outdoors.

From an update 5/2015- Liberty is still not talking yet, but she can understand what adults say. She is happy. Liberty can wave goodbye and she canwalk by herself. If she falls down, she can stand back up andwalk on her own. Liberty likes playing with other kids. She is in the hospital for her heart surgery right now.

Nicole (14) , Nicoletta(9), Nicolina(5) and Nicholas (7)Nicole (14) , Nicoletta (9), Nicolina (5) and Nicholas (7)

A close-knit sibling group of four kids is waiting for their forever family! Born to parents who are both mute and deaf, all four kids have moderate to severe hearing loss and resulting delays in speech and development. Unfortunately, they only received medical evaluation and hearing aids last year.

These children need someone to teach them sign language, to help them catch up their peers, and to seek more treatment and therapies to mitigate their hearing loss. No lessons in love are needed – the kids already know what it means to be a family and are very attached to each other – they just need to find a family to share their affection with!

Because we only have this file for a short time, we will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

Graceann (2)

graceann-2015-2Girl, born December 2010
PRC
Post-op cerebral palsy

 

Graceann is a precious little girl who is 4 years old. She was found abandoned when she was 2 years old, and was diagnosed with spastic CP. She has had surgery and is receiving therapy to help her walk. Graceann’s file refers to her medical issue as “poor brain development”, which is a poor description of CP. Since her surgery, and through her therapy, she has improved her gross motor skills, and her speech, quite well. Graceann loves her nannies, and is very happy when they play with her. She is described as a smart girl who is confident, happy, and loves to laugh. She can speak (and be understood), although she is not as noisy as some of the other kids! Graceann is a sweet, and loving girl who wants a family of her own.

Gwen 10-29-15 (5) resizedGirl, born 2013
PRC
Congenital heart defect

Gwen is a two year old cutie! She was abandoned when she was only one month old and was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, a common heart defect that comprises 4 separate abnormalities. Gwen had surgery at one month old that successfully repaired 3 of the 4 defects. According to a US cardiologist who reviewed her file, Gwen may need a balloon procedure or even open heart surgery to address the remaining defect (a narrowed artery) at some point in the future, although the orphanage believes her cardiac issues are resolved.

Gwen also has inverted eyelashes (epiblepharon) which is not uncommon in children of Asian descent. This means she has an extra horizontal fold of skin near her eyelid which causes the lashes to be directed towards her eye and can cause irritation of the cornea. Some children grow out of this condition while others may need minor surgery to rotate the eyelashes outward.

Gwen is now able to eat, walk and run independently. Her intellectual development is comparable to her peers. She’s a little shy and doesn’t say much in front of strangers. Gwen is described as a helper who loves being cuddled by caretakers. Could this sweet girl be your daughter?

Vision impairment

Claudia lives with a foster family. She has mixed health and developmental problems. Her right eye is missing, and instead she has implant prosthesis. Left eye vision is weaker and she wears glasses.

She doesn’t need a diaper during the day. She walks alone, without support. She can ride a bike. She can hold a spoon or fork but still needs some help with her food. She doesn’t have a good appetite. She is a happy child who smiles frequently. She expresses her happiness and joy with words and actions (hugs).  Claudia’s speech is delayed, her sentences are short, simple and sometimes unclear.

Claudia shows obvious interest for people in her environment. She is bonded to foster parents but she also puts trust in people she is not familiar with. When she upset, she is “unplugging” from contact and avoiding communication.  She is not attending kindergarten yet. She is not allergic on any kind of food or medicine.

The country will send a photo to a family, after they submit a letter of interest.

Fallyn2 2015 Fallyn 2015Fallyn 2Girl, two years old
Turner syndrome, neuro-sensory disorder in hearing, Persisting anemia, suspected for minor thalassemia

The agency has many photos and video, from October 2015

Fallyn was raised by her birth mother for the first year of her life. Her birth mother is deaf and mute, and Fallyn was developmentally delayed upon entering the orphanage.

She has undergone multiple hospital and specialist visits since entering the orphanage in order to receive a proper diagnosis. An MRI was done to check for CP or other conditions and results came back normal. She was severely anemic and had other deficits in her blood work upon entering the orphanage. She was given iron and Vitamin D supplements until her blood work came back in the normal range. She was diagnosed with a neuro-sensory hearing loss in late 2014, but no intervention or follow-up has been done as of her most recent report. .

Fallyn can walk independently. She looks around in her environment, smiles when teased, follows what happens around her and observes children and adults. She understands the voice tone of the adults. She cheers up when paid attention, vivifies and shouts out. She cheers up when contacted by a child, touches them and smiles wide. She reacts with cry to pain. She can be upset for a short time.

She pronounces syllables (ba-ba, da-da, ta-ta), sounds and crowing sounds. She turns when called by her name. She shouts loud to attract attention and doesn’t stop until she gets what she wants. She has preference and linking to specific adults. She demonstrates cheerful emotion when seeing specific adults and is upset when they leave. She takes away toys form the hands of the other children. She interacts with the adults, seeks contact and attention but prefers to play alone and no one to invade her personal space. She reaches out, picks up a toy with both hands, transfers it from one hand to another, lifts it to her mouth and plays for a short time. She would shake it to produce sounds. She studies the toys for a long time from all sides. She prefers to play with her hands and touch them and her face. She claps with her hands. She has a favorite toy (a stuffed fox), holds it, “talks” to it and brings it up to her face. She eats with a spoon and drinks from an open cup.

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.

leenaGirl, born 2011

Phenylketonuria, also known as PKU

Leena will be available early 2016!

 

From a missionary who met her in 2015: “Leena is a strong-willed young girl.  She is stubborn and funny. She loves to explore the world (within the concrete walls she lives between). She has been transferred to this facility in May and she is obviously still getting used to the circumstances of living. She had a lot more freedom in the baby orphanage she came from. Leena can walk (so don’t be fooled by the picture), she can run, she is very energetic. She can drink from a cup. This summer (2015) she was being potty trained. She doesn’t talk. She squeals when she is very excited. She is probably the size of a 3 year old at the moment (summer 2015). She probably understands what is being said to her, but she has a hard time following orders. Due to her PKU she needs a special diet and medicine. The baby orphanage she grew up in, didn’t provide the proper care. So (part of) het mental delays may be caused because of that. The facility she lived in right now, tries to provide the proper care. They do not receive funds for it, so they raise it themselves with a charity fund. They really try to take good care of her. Some nurses really like her. Other nurses have a hard time dealing with her, because of her energetic ways. She likes to move and run around all the time. As soon as you let go of her hand or take her out of her wheelchair, you have to chase her. As soon as you give her an opportunity she’ll take it. Some days she was tied up in a wheelchair and we thought she might have been drugged. She didn’t react, she didn’t smile, she didn’t interact. Until the moment my fiancé pulled her from the wheelchair and it was as if she came alive again. I have not seen any selfharming behaviours and I haven’t seen her hurt other children. I have also not seen her interact with other children at all. The nurses don’t like it when she gets all excited, but for me it was a sign that she was not so institutionalized yet. There was so much fight in her. I hope she finds a family before she loses the strength to fight and before her delays will get worse, due to a lack of a proper diet and medical care.”

Estropia, possible CP

Lucetta is an adorable little girl who is 3 years old! She came into care as a newborn, and lives in the orphanage. Lucetta has esotropia which is the “turning in” of her eyes. It can be corrected with glasses, temporary patching, or outpatient surgery. Lucetta’s gross motor skills were delayed as of her report (done when she was about 16 months old). She was not crawling or pulling to stand at that time, and an exam suggested she may have CP. Lucetta is a lovable little one, and enjoys playing with toys. Lucetta is ready for her Mommy and Daddy to come and get her!

Hasini (2)Hasini (3)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?

Maggie (2)

Maggie (1)Girl, born September 2013
PRC
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.

Emma2

EmmaGirl, born February 2010
PRC
Cerebral palsy

Emma is a spirited, and awfully cute, little girl who is 5 years old! She came into care as a 6 month old, and was initially found to have no significant health issues. There was a clue, however. The back of Emma’s head was flattened a bit, which indicates she had spent way too much time flat on her back in a bed the first 6 months of her life. Needless to say, her development was delayed at that point, and the reason was soon discovered. Emma has since received a diagnosis of CP, which appears to affect her right side. She is not yet talking or toilet trained. Emma has a lot of work to do to catch up with the other kids. The orphanage staff has been diligent in helping her. Emma can walk, and climb stairs. Emma is quite willing to stick up for herself…they say when she used her walker, and another child took her toy, she would quickly “drive” the walker and chase the child to retrieve the toy! Emma loves to laugh, and gets along well with older and younger children (unless they take her toys). This sweet little girl will surely benefit from PT/OT/speech sessions, and most of all, from the love and laughter of her very own family.

Guardian AngelPriscilla

Girl, Born February 2010

WONDERFUL new photo of Miss Priss!

updated medical: congenital malformations of her spinal cord/musculoskeletal system/eye/hip, lactose intolerance, nephritis, diverticulum of bladder, mental delays

Pretty Priscilla!

From her caregivers:  communicative; adequate reactions.  Character: cheerful, active, friendly, communicative, likes to play with different toys.

Update Nov 18, 2014:

Priscilla is doing very well. She is a kind of shying but a smart girl. She understands everything but her speech ability is not understandable to me as she is very quiet. She has survived her blood issues she had few years ago.

She will be 5 years old in February 2015, and it would be great if a family will be ready to adopt her by that time. She really needs a family asap because her intellectual potential may be lost due to nobody really cares of her mental development and IQ in the orphanage. The care of her general health condition pretty good though.

More photos available.  Priscilla may be available with Louis.

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!

Cerebral palsy and temporal lobe epilepsy

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.

Maisie April 2015Sweet Maisie was born in April of 2012 and has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

Maisie is a sensitive child who likes looking at the world around her as well as listening to music and watching cartoons. She reaches for toys and tries to babble. Maisie can roll from stomach to back and vice versa. She cannot sit unassisted, but has some head control and tries to pull to a stand against stable support.

Maisie is responsive to her caregivers and appears to understand everything they say to her. She recognizes familiar adults and loves to be held.Maisie Photo 2 August 2014 - August 2014

Update April 2015: Specific reasons are unknown, but Maisie’s condition seems to be deteriorating. She needs the love of a family as well as appropriate medical care and therapies quickly.

Update December 2015: Our in-country representative once again sought new information about Maisie and learned that she was born prematurely, weighing 1220 grams and 39 cm tall. Her APGAR score was 3-5. Maisie’s current diagnoses are cerebral palsy, bilateral hemiparesis, non-progressive retinopathy, esotropia, high muscle tone, mild anemia (no helminthosis), and developmental delays.

At this time, Maisie’s mobility is limited and she does not use a wheelchair. She has head control, but cannot sit unassisted. Maisie reaches for and holds toys, recognizes and smiles at her caretakers, and understands what is said to her though she does not respond verbally. Maisie is spoon-fed and sleeps calmly.

Isabelle (2) Isabelle (1)Girl, born August 2009
PRC
Esotropia and amblyopia of right eye; slow motor reflex

Gorgeous 5.5 year old Isabelle is waiting for her forever family to find her! Isabelle is listed as having esotropia and weak sight of the right eye. Esotropia is a form of strabismus, or “squint,” in which one or both eyes turns inward. Isabelle is also diagnosed as having slow motor reflexes. She had a CT scan done and it came back clean-no abnormal findings. Isabelle’s file is outdated (from Dec. 2013). Isabelle likes to giggle, play games, and imitate what others are doing. She likes watching TV and cries if she is not allowed. She loves her foster mother and those she sees on a regular basis. She is not afraid of strangers. She speaks very little. She says “po-po” (Grandma), “ma-ma” (mother) and “ba-ba” (father). She follows directions very well. If you ask her to point to a certain body part, she will do that. She is very wobbly on her feet and cannot really stand up without a helping hand. She leans on her foster mother a lot, but she was observed to be able to walk flat footed. She is clearly adorable, but may need a family who is open to significant delays and to some unknowns.

Tesia updated picture 2 Tesia updated photoTesaiupdate2 Girl, born Feb 2011
PRC
Down syndrome, Cleft Palate, bilateral ear deformity, growth delays, developmental delay

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!”

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.

mikaylaGirl, born December 2009
PRC
File lists Symphysodactylia (not mentioned in the file, but she is thought to have Apert Syndrome)

Mikayla is a five year old full of personality and energy. This little lady knows what she wants and loves to have her photo taken and likes to use money to buy things by herself. She is described as active and outgoing and always has a smile ready for anyone around, just in case they might have a camera. She also likes dogs and playing outdoors.

Between 7-9 months she mastered crawling, could make single syllable sound like dad and mom, reach out for objects, and knew when her name was called. During her 10-12 months she could stand by herself then learned to walk alone for a few steps, she was also able to wave bye-bye, point to an object she wanted, sneak open a cabinet to find something she wanted and throw it playfully.

By two she could walk on her own and began to feed herself with a spoon. She was trying more independent tasks like taking off her shoes and socks and going to the toilet by herself. She also began to speak some simple words. Growing more independent at 3 years old, she likes to mimic the adults by helping to sweep the floors and can go upstairs and downstairs.

Mikayla lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with her little foster brother (Milo) with whom she is very close and adores. It would be wonderful if she and Milo could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

Ohh, I love her little pouf of hair, what a lovely little girl.

Not sure how much vision she has.
From a family who met her in early 2014:
She needs out! She is skeletal and looks to be in very poor condition. Neveah just cries and cries if you get near her. Also, she appeared to be heavily sedated. She had a toy tied to her wrist/hand, and her hands were bound to not scratch herself. So, so sad.

paralysis of lower limbs and abnormal development of sacral vertebrae

 

Meet adorable 1.5 year old Maisy! The agency’s guide has met Maisy and said that her legs have no feeling. She is a very sweet girl and is well bonded with her foster parents. She smiles a lot! Maisy can recognize people well and will not let strangers hold her. She likes watching TV, especially cartoons. She could crawl with the support of her arms. Maisy is a peaceful, quiet and cute girl. Her spine lacks some bones. She will eventually need to be in wheelchair, but other than that, the rest of her development is normal. Maisy is still young so it is hard to tell if she will be incontinent.

From her file: She is lovely, introverted, and afraid of strangers. She is quiet and occasionally obstinate. She can wave her hands if happy and she likes music. She can sit, crawl and turn over. She can grasp toys with her hands and can make sound of “yiyi, yaya.” She smiles when she sees her foster mom and cries when she sees strangers. She does not want to be cuddled by strangers and tracks her foster mom all the time with her eyes. If she sees her foster mom taking her bag to go out to buy vegetables, she will want to go with her. She is serious and smiles at you if teased occasionally. She likes when her foster mom takes her outdoors to play. She is curious with everything outside and will come to the foster mom if she sees strangers. She can dance with her hands and feet when she is excited.

MaddieMaddie update 2015Girl, born March 2014
H-C

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.

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.

photogirlLayla was born in May 2010 and has been diagnosed with medication phetopathy, acrocephaly, lower jaw agenesis, ankyloblepharon, a congenital foot and hip malformation, and low set ears. Layla is small for her age and her development is delayed. She may need further medical diagnostics and possible genetic counseling.

Layla is a sweet girl who can walk independently and understands what is said to her as well as follows instructions. Layla speaks and answers questions though her speech is a bit unclear.

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!

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!

Cerebral Palsy

Cassie is a beautiful little girl! She was found by a family when she was about 7 months old. They took her home and kept her until she was about 17 months old, then took her to the police station. Cassie was found to have cerebral palsy. She had a difficult time at the orphanage when she first arrived. She kept calling for her “neinei” (grandmother) and was inconsolable. After a bit, she warmed to the nannies and the other children. Through therapy, Cassie’s muscles are less tight, and she is able to crawl, sit alone, and can stand with assistance. She can speak (though not as well as her peers), and uses some sign language. Cassie can count, and has a good memory. She likes to sing, and loves to play with dolls! Reading about her progress with therapy at the orphanage, imagine what could happen with formal therapy once she is home! Sweet Cassie is waiting for a family. Please bring her home soon!

Brynn is a very sweet and outgoing child. She is in her orphanage’s rehabilitation training for her cerebral palsy. She is now able to stand with the help of objects and can take some steps and go up and down stairs with support. Brynn can stand on her tiptoes. She can grab foods to eat on her own, but she cannot eat on her own using a bowl, spoon or chopsticks. She has good recognition abilities, and is very close to her nannies. Brynn cannot dress herself on her own. She likes to imitate adults, but cannot say complete sentences. She likes to go to class, and like to build with blocks and scribble. Brynn is not able to draw circles. Be the voice and help Brynn find a family!

Mary Ellen 2015 Mary Ellen_2015Age: 3
Diagnosis: Arnold-Chiari syndrome; hydrocephalus (shunt installed); spina bifida aperta-surgically repaired; stabismus; frequent bladder infections that are being treated; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic diplegia; Seizure symptomatic – on treatment with Convulex; Delays in the psycho-motor development.

She lies only on her back, with increased muscle tone of the legs. She spontaneously makes attempts to turn from back to stomach by grabbing with hands on available support and manages to turn to one side. She already sits in a chair. She doesn’t have active movements in her bottom extremities.

She now would play for longer time with a hanging toy but manipulates non-specifically with it. She already takes and holds for long time a toy given to her, studies it, transfers it from one hand to another. She now studies her hands more rarely and already smiles.

Recently, the child is with improved emotional tone (after a very long period of definitely instable mood, cry and not allowing contact when adults would try to interact with her). When she is in a good mood, she laughs loud when teased by a familiar adult. She already repeats shown social gestures and movements with hands but doesn’t do them after verbal instruction.

She doesn’t understand the speech and doesn’t carry out verbal instructions if not shown something. She pronounces sounds and shouts. She doesn’t say syllables yet.

She can’t interact with the other children. She reacts with cheer in the presence of and at teases from an adult but can’t co-operate and participate actively in a joint play or interaction. She plays with toys in her crib manipulating non-specifically with them. She eats mashed food from a spoon. She drinks liquids with a bottle.

The agency has additional photos and video from 2015.

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.

Lulu (2)

Lulu (1)Girl, born May 2011
PRC
Post-op congential retinal glioblastoma; Artificial eye

Beautiful Lulu was abandoned in January of 2013 and was preliminarily diagnosed with leukocoria in her right eye and an artificial left eye.

Her hands are nimble and she can use one hand to grab the other. She normally grabs things and plays with toys on her own. She can do a few fine motor movements and she uses her fingers to grab onto and pick things up. Her left and right hands can pass things back and forth between them. She can grab onto cookies as well as fruit and eat them. She can walk on her own and she likes to jump and play in her crib. Lulu has post-operative retinal glioblastoma, an artificial eye and both her eyes cannot see things.

Lulu can call out, “ma ma” and sometimes she will baby talk. She understands what the nannies say and she especially likes to play together with the nannies; and when they tease her, she will smile happily. The child remembers the sounds of people she’s acquainted with and when she hears someone she’s familiar with, she will want to be held. She rarely cries and when the child is crying her heart out, if you grab a toy and give it to her, grab something to give her to eat or hold her she will be ok.

Lulu is a lively little girl who loves to smile and is especially likeable. She is very gregarious and she likes to play together with other little children. However, sometimes she is a bit shy. She is especially interested in sounds and likes to listen to music

474_Ph_Dec13Girl, 1.7- year-old
Congenital hydrocephalus (no indications for a surgical correction at present); microcephalus; suspected infantile cerebral palsy; convergent concomitant strabismus; specific developmental disorder of motor function; delayed neuropsychological development.

Marilee vocalizes (vowel sounds such as “a-a-a”), although she does not yet produce defined syllables or connected syllables. She does not cry in a loud and clear voice. Her eye contact needs to improve further. Marilee does not yet respond to being called by name. She responds visibly to touch and relaxes greatly when someone holds her in their arms.

-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.

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.

Lizzi Belle (2)

Lizzi Belle (1)Girl, born August 2009
PRC
Intellectual delays, possible cerebral palsy, possible autism

Lizzi Belle was first thought to have Down syndrome, but that was not the case. However, she has very severe intellectual delays, possible CP, and possibly autism. Lizzi Belle cannot speak, cannot walk, is not toilet trained, and according to the nannies…”unable to communicate with the outside world”. A family for Lizzi must be willing to love her unconditionally, and care for her needs for many, many years to come. It is impossible to say what the future holds for Lizzi Belle, but it will certainly be brighter with a family to love her! This photo is an older photo, but the agency has a new video to share.

PRC
Spina bifida (post-op)

 

Anna has no sensation in her lower limbs but her upper limbs has full range of movement. She can sit independently but cannot walk. She has no sensation regarding toileting. Her mental and language development is all age appropriate according to her update completed December 2013. Her foster mother says that she is active and gentle.

Warden-WaldenBoy, born 2012
PRC
Twin brothers
Premature; one brother has autism

 

Warner and Walden are two handsome twin boys who are currently living in different foster families. They see each other periodically but do not have a close relationship. Their reports indicate that they were both born prematurely due to their low weights at the time they were found. Over time, they both increased their food intake and grew in strength.

When Warner was nearly 2 years of age, he could walk steadily, follow simple instructions, and speak 3-5 simple words. He could be stubborn at times like many toddlers, like throwing food he didn’t like in the trash when his foster mom wasn’t looking. He’s an active, outgoing kid who likes interacting with others and playing with toys with other children. According to an update October 2015, he’s made great progress with his communication and language skills; he can answer questions about his name and age, count to 20, express his wants and needs, knows children’s names, and can even recite poems. He has become more independent and can dress himself, feed himself, and use the bathroom. He feels closest to his foster mom and has a few close friends he likes playing with the most. Even though he can be stubborn at times and has an occasional quarrel with his younger foster sister, he still shows his empathy and kindness by helping with chores around the house and even offering his foster parents a back rub when he knows they’re tired!

Walden loves playing with toys, especially ones that make sounds! When he gets a new toy, he likes to shake it first; he’s particularly enthralled by car toys that make engine-like sounds. As an infant, he had some motor development delays; he could crawl and eventually learned to walk, though a bit unsteadily, just before he turned 2 years old. He did not cry often as an infant, and could babble sounds like “ma” and “ah wei”. He would get excited during mealtimes and adorably babble “muma” and scoot closer to anyone holding food. He responds better to familiar people and feels closest to his foster parents, sometimes even putting his arms around them for comfort. When he’s upset, he balls up his fists and his body shakes; his parents help him calm down by holding him and taking him outside. He can recognize his name and although his language skills are limited, he can understand simple instructions. He will sometime engage in repetitive self-soothing behaviors when he feels alone and would benefit from redirection to help him find other ways to comfort himself. An evaluation completed in 2014 suggests a possibility of mild to moderate autism due to his low engagement and minimal communication with others. An update from 2015 tells us he has improved his ability to make eye contact, and can still point to express his wants and needs (for example, when he wants to eat or watch his favorite cartoons). Walden would benefit from a loving, supportive environment and specialized education tailored to his needs.

The current agency has a $4000 grant available to assist families that qualify with the cost of this adoption.

Gabriella (1)

SMALLGirl, born February 2014
PRC
osteo-genesis imperfecta (OI)

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.

Grace RKGirl, born 2010
PRC
Cleft lip and palate; congenital heart defect (post-op)

Grace is 5 ½ years old. She was abandoned by the train station when she was ten days old and has been living in an orphanage ever since. Grace was born with a cleft lip and palate, for which her first surgery will occur in May. She also had a congenital heart defect which was corrected this past summer. She does not take any cardiac medication but she sometimes pants and her lips become blue after strenuous exercise so her cardiac issues may not be fully resolved.

Grace is reported to have normal intelligence, bowel and bladder control, and she walks and runs just fine. She dresses herself, speaks in 3 – 5 word sentences, likes to sing and play games with other children.

Grace needs a family of her own. Can she join yours?

Ginny RKGirl, born 2012
PRC
Congenital heart defect

Ginny is all girl, although it’s hard to tell with her short haircut and attire. She recently turned 3. She was found abandoned outside the orphanage at 7 months of age. She had surgery in August, 2015 to correct two heart defects, Tetrology of Fallot and Patent Foramen Ovale. A US cardiologist who reviewed her file indicates that a primary repair done correctly leads to a generally good prognosis. Ginny does not take any cardiac medication and her activities are not restricted, so it seems that she’s doing quite well now.

Ginny has good bowel and bladder control during the day but is still in diapers at night. She has well developed fine and gross motor skills. She walks and runs well. She has good self-care skills: she can dress and undress herself, knows what to do when she feels cold or tired, and expresses herself well. Ginny likes to watch TV and listen to music. She is reported to have typical intelligence.

Is Ginny the daughter you’ve been searching for?
