Down Syndrome, 10+ Girls

Reece's Rainbow is dedicated to rescuing orphans abroad with Down syndrome. The ugly truth of the matter is that once these children reach a certain age, especially growing up in institutional/orphanage settings, they get to a point where they are no longer likely to be adopted.

Isabelle #2-2

Isabelle Sept 2013 (1)Girl, Born February 2002

Down syndrome

From her medical records:   The child is in a very good general condition. Elementary thinking processes are observed. She can’t speak but pronounces sounds and combinations of sounds: ba-ba, etc. that are completely random. She knows her name and reacts when called. She carries out elementary orders. She is not oriented for place and time. Her attention is unstable, her memory is mechanic.

In emotional aspect the child is calm, merry and playful. She enjoys the attention that she is paid and actively seeks it. She easily enters into interaction with the children and the adults in the orphanage. She has friends among the children and prefers to play with them. She reacts actively in musical classes – makes rhythmical movements, but almost doesn’t play with toys and prefers to put them in her mouth or toss them.

The child walks independently and carries out the orders of the physical therapist – crouches, stands up. She already eats by herself. She doesn’t signal about her physiological needs and is taken care of entirely by the personnel of the orphanage.

The child is being taught to put her clothes on and take them off on her own. The training for gaining life skills continues.

Single moms and large families welcome, easy travel!

Clarice

CLarice

Clarice 2014 2 Girl, born July 1999
Down syndrome

 

Clarice’s pictures are so fun to see – she seems to be all sunshine and motion!   She has such an amazing grin!

Clarice is so tiny; and she has many facial features of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, in addition to her Down syndrome.

She has the personality of an impetuous toddler- very high energy and eager to try everything life has to offer. She too needs a family, and the sooner the better. The possibilities for a child to thrive when they reach a family are endless. She will definitely need medical attention, as you can tell from just seeing her teeth, and lots of patient instruction and guidance.

 

Update from May 2014:
Clarice has a sunshine smile, twinkling eyes, and a unique set of needs, as she is the victim of at least one confirmed type of maternal substance abuse in addition to having Down Syndrome and scoliosis. She has spent the entirety of her almost-15 years of her life without the essential and nurturing maternal and paternal bond. She is a sweet-natured, not loud, strong, and curious child who is the size of a slender six year-old. She is cognitively about two years old. She IS able to obey the stern orphanage nannies, and enjoys massage, stroller rides, sensory activities if she is offered, joint stimulation, and can walk. Clarice can engage in purposeful play and follow basic instructions. She bear-crawls (think Jungle Book) many times, and really has a gentle disposition. Her eyes are innocent and kind, and her personality is gentle and sweet. It is not fair to expect a child in this condition to “perform” for a room full of adults, and she is enamored and thankful with any offers of play or stimulation. She has a self-stimming habit of pushing on her private parts under her underpants, but as I have learned in the DS community, this is probably a result of a lack of sensory input. So, if given the right redirection through sensory play, her habit could be redirected. Clarice has the strength of a man when she wants you to hold her, and it is my opinion that it is unsuitable for her to have several physically smaller siblings. However, that is not legislated. There are several telling videos and photos of Clarice to share for the right family. She needs a family ASAP! I was told by a national regarding the kind of place she goes next — that “most children live for only one year at most once transferred.” Please pray for precious Clarice. Could you love her as a daughter? God knows her name, and he will provide her needs.

Crystal L25

photogirlGirl, Born November 2001

Down syndrome

 

Crystal is so pretty!  Dark hair and brown eyes.   She does have Down syndrome, but also has many facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome) as well.   Crystal has tremendous potential.  She has been significantly impacted by very poor vision and hearing, and that has resulted in lower cognition and physical abilities.  Imagine how her world could open up with medical treatment, glasses, and hearing aids!

Crystal can be assertive sometimes, so a family with older children is recommended.  Full medical and behavioral info available.  Older parents, large families, and single moms welcome.

From someone who met her:  She was in an almost empty room, just with another child next to her. She was rocking and gnawing at the bars of the cot and such a sad sight to behold.  My heart just collapsed for her!

Velia is IN THERE.  She needs a family urgently.  URGENTLY.

 

Every minute Velia spends here is a lost opportunity for life.  There is a family out there who will want her, love her, cherish her, help her reach her true potential.   Grant donations make all the difference!

TrudyGirl, born April 2004
PRC
Down syndrome, Hep B

 

Trudy has normal limb development and delayed mental development compared to other children. Upon admission, she was 1 year old and she was careful in her new surroundings. At the age of 2 years, she could walk alone, was curious about new things, her hand-eye coordination was improved, and she could express her emotion. At the age of 4 years, she could have eat and drink independently and could recognize people, places and objects, but her expression was poor. At the age of 6 years, she was receiving the special education in the institute. Her self-management was improved under the guidance of the teacher, but her accepting ability was not good compared to other kids of her age. At the age of 8 years, she could speak simple numbers and words, could draw, could finish some simple jigsaw puzzles, and could play with the toy blocks. Now she can wave her body along with the rhythm of the music, can read simple children’s songs and words, and can count 1-10, but her expression is still poor. Trudy is open, likes music, can get along well with other kids, likes helping people, and wants to be praised. She is happy when watching cartoons and walking outside.

Harley

Harley-2014Girl, born Jun 2000

Down syndrome

 

From one of our adoptive families who met her in August 2014:  ” Harley was so sweet and gentle.   She reached for my hands several times and is very aware of her surroundings. She is walking and just a gentle little love. However, she knows how to express her dislikes as well.   One of the other children was crowding her and she did not like it so she let her know in no uncertain terms that she was not pleased.  She really is a doll!”


From someone who met her in 2013:

It is so difficult to believe we celebrated Harley’s 13th birthday when we visited the orphanage. She’s so very tiny and still very much a baby. She is very loving and sweet. She clings to you when you hold her and always smiles when you bounce her up and down and tickle you. She doesn’t walk or talk, and is very limited. Harley is capable of walking with assistance and can take a few steps on her own if you push her hard enough! She can babble a little bit.

Harley walking

Update March 2014:
This little girl has spunk! She is now walking while holding hands with the nanny, and has opinions of her own about exactly who she will walk with and when she will do it. She may look like a 5 year old in size, but she has a ton of personality and independence! She seemed quite obedient, as they asked her to sit in her bed for a bit while they got her things together.

She doesn’t speak that I heard, but is very observant and watched everything that was going on. Her receptive language skills seem much better than her expressive ones, since she nodded and complied with everything they asked, even though she had just woken up and seemed a bit bleary eyed. The staff said she has a very good attention span. She is very cute – so tiny for her age- she looks just like a kindergartner, not a 14 year old.

Emmaline

EmmalineGirl, born June 2002

PRC
Down syndrome

 

Emmaline is well behaved, lovely and cute. Sometimes when she feels injustice from other children, she would act as a spoiled child in the cuddle of a teacher. As she grows up everyday, we feel happy yet we worry about her, because she is very sensitive and is able to understand what the teachers tell her. Sometimes she could do something out of predict. She has a good friend and they are called “golden partners” just because they are always together whatsoever playing or eating. They share things well and they even do things together such as cleaning floors.

We remember that once she found one shoe on the air conditioning, and she wanted to get it down, however, she was not tall enough and she babbled telling her friend.  The friend took a chair, Emmaline stepped on the chair in order to get the shoe, and finally, she made it.  She really surprised us at that time. She is really amazing. She could think of using a chair to help to get the shoe to finish her goal.

Unfortunately, she seldom speaks, which is the thing that we worry about her the most. Only give her more stimulate of language skills such as doing some oral gym to help her learn simple words, could she incorporate herself into this society well.

Katrina

katrina2014Girl, Born December 2001

Oh what a miracle, to have an updated photo of Katrina!!!    And there is the light I  knew had to be there!   She doesn’t realize it, but now that she has a profile here on Reece’s Rainbow, Katrina has a CHANCE…a chance for a new life, a family of her own, to get out of these four walls and to have something to smile about.

From her medical records:  Down syndrome, significant cognitive delay (coupled with FAS), flatfoot, partial atrophy of optic nerves, esotropia, secondary cardiomyopathy.
From a missionary who visited in August 2014:   ”Katrina is such a clever little munchkin. She mimics lots of different things, massage therapy, diapers changes, hammering in nails. Pulling faces the whole time, she is hilarious!  She loves cuddles and once she has you she doesn’t want to let go.  She still drinks from a bottle.  She can walk.  She cannot talk (yet). She can be a bit rough at times (scratching / hitting / pushing) so would be better in a family with bigger kids. She just wants to be loved. ”

From a missionary who visited with her in March 2012: Oh my heart…I so wanted to bring her home!   She is a giggly soft hearted darling…she needs a mama!

From a family who met her, summer 2014:
Katrina was sitting in a stroller both times we saw her but I know she can walk. She seemed very happy to sit and listen to music during a concert for the orphanage, and she looked over at us with curiosity a few times. Her eyes are gorgeous. She was super cute and smiley, also calm and entertained when we saw her.

She was one of the girls selected for the group home, and the individual attention and instruction should really help her transition into a family! Even though she is getting better care right now, she would make even more progress in a real home. She needs a family!

Katrina and Tania can be adopted together if a family is approved and interested.   10 day wait often waived here.  Married couples only, larger families welcome.

Tania

tania-2014Girl, born August 2002.

 

She is said to be independent and active, and she especially loves to swing.  She is shy with other children, and seeks attention from adults, cuddling up when hugs and affection are available.

 

From her medical records:  Down syndrome, esotropia, flatfoot, secondary  cardiomyopathy.

 

From a missionary who visited in August 2014: “ she is full of energy, she’ll keep you on your toes. She eats very well and can feed herself. She can walk, run and jump. She doesn’t talk but she makes sounds. She is very boisterous and on the go, she needs big brothers in her life!

 

From a missionary who visited with her in March 2012:  One time the care giver made her sit with other children she was so desperate for me all to herself shecried! she really didnt want to share me.   This is seriously one child who wants a Mama!   She seemed so bright, there is so much potential here being wasted.   She whacked the other children to keep them away from me but I could tell she was not an aggressive child.  Tania is fiesty and able and just desperate for love!  I loved her!!!   I wanted to bring her and Katarina home.  Tania is always active and she loves playing with her swing set, unlike the other kids who rather just play with their toys. The child is a bit shy around the children of her age.  However, she is very brave and courageous when dealing with new visitors.  The girl suffers from a lack of motherly care and gentleness, so she is attracted to everyone who is nice and kind to her.   She hides her lonely soul behind the wall of her active and independent lifestyle.   But as soon as she receives a warm hug and a little love, the mischievous girl suddenly becomes docile and calm.

Larger families, older parents welcome. This region does often waive the 10-day waiting period!

From a family who met her, summer 2014:
Tania is such a tiny little cutie! I can’t believe she is still waiting! She was also a good friend of one of our boys. Every time he sees her picture he will call out her name.We saw her with the other kids from her home at a concert at the orphanage. She was watching everything and danced to a few of the songs. She was the size of a petite five year old, but proportionally small, not too skinny. Her hair is just starting to grow out and is so pretty. She waved and smiled at us a couple times while we were there with our sons. When everyone walked back to the homes after the concert, she got mixed in with our group as her caregivers were pushing wheelchairs and going more slowly. When our group pointed back to where her group was, she turned and walked back very agreeably. She had no trouble walking the fifteen minutes in each direction. We didn’t hear her talk, but she did seem to understand what the caregivers were saying.

She would do so well in a family. The home she is in now is more of a family setting with fewer children and more individual attention, but it is not the same as a real family and they can’t stay there forever. It will give her a great head start to transitioning to a family though!

Dawn #17-1

Girl, born 2001

Down syndrome

Update May 2012:
Dawn lived in an orphanage until she was three, when they moved her to an institution.

She just started walking a couple of months ago. She enjoys interacting with adults and playing with toys. Her favorite activities and toys revolve around music. She understands what is said to her but does not have any meaningful speech at this time. She reacts very positively to attention, smiles and cheers when adults interact with her. She attends a class at the institution, but does not go to school outside of the institution. She has not had the opportunity to experience many of the ordinary activities that other children her age are naturally exposed to due to the length of time she’s been institutionalized. She doesn’t have any medical or behavioral concerns. She just needs a family willing to look past her age to see her potential!

SINGLE MOMS, OLDER PARENTS, & LARGE FAMILIES WELCOME, EASY TRAVEL.   MULTIPLE CHILDREN CAN BE ADOPTED AT THE SAME TIME FOR LOW COST.
