Alaric 2015 (1) Alaric 2015 (2)Boy, born 2009
Down syndrome
Alaric has delays in psycho-motor development. Senses(sight, hearing) are preserved.

 

UPDATE early 2015:
Alaric was moved to a family style group home 6 months ago and has made significant progress in this new setting. He is now receiving more personalized attention from staff. While Alaric is still not walking, the director believes that this is due simply to his stubborn insistence to crawl, as he can walk while holding on to one hand of a caregiver. To help him become more independent, the staff introduced a wheelchair and Alaric has learned to maneuver the wheelchair to get where he wants to go. A physical therapist will begin intensive work on teaching him to walk in the coming months.
The staff reports that Alaric has become more expressive and confident since moving into the group home. They are working with him on learning self-help skills such as feeding himself and dressing himself.

Photos and videos from Feb 2015 are available through the agency.

Update Sept 2015
He is extremely energetic child, constantly in motion, keeping his attention on something for a short time. When he has some purpose, he is able to walk a long distance lead by hands to reach his goal. If he was sitting on the ground and nearby there was a support – he succeeded standing up without other’s help. If there was some distance to his goal – then he was crawling to the support (the wall in our case), after which leaning on the wall with his hands, he alone was reaching the desired object.

As to the food, having in mind his diagnose – Down syndrome and related with its physiological characteristics, he is chewing and swallowing with difficulty. Therefore he still accepts blended food – five times daily. He is fed by the staff but usually they “encourage” him to eat alone, holding his hand and bringing the food to his mouth. He drinks liquids with a spoon or with syringe. When served with a cup, he can hold it, but does not bring it to his mouth. He is usually biting the feeding/nursing-bottle. Otherwise, he eats/finishes everything, even very often when he is done with his food, he snivels.

Codey is very cute, although he was very shy with us, strangers. He needs some physical help. He wears diapers and he needs some help dressing but he is making progress. He is described as having “good focus”, “curious”, and “naughty”. The latter has a very positive connotation in China, where naughty means, smart, funny and clever. He plays very well and interactively with the other children. It is obvious that he is really loved by the staff and his teacher. Codey has been healthy, with no significant medical history or surgeries. He looks clean, well dressed, well nourished, and well cared for. The most touching part of Codey is his attachment to another child in his group, Sasha, a little girl his age who also has Down Syndrome. They have a very close bond with each other. Cody attends a special class in the orphanage where her is taught by a special ed teacher, along with a group of peers who have DS. This little boy appears to have a lot of potential.

From a family who met him in 2015:  “Heinrich ran right up to me and asked to go up, and then enjoyed a play session full of jumping. He definitely has a lot of energy, and I was amazed at his gross motor skills. He loved the play area’s rocking horse!”

Update as of April 2013:  His development is delayed; he recently started to walk without help, but not yet steady. Emotions are weak, play activity is primitive, throws away toys, turns them around, puts into the mouth, sucks his fingers, makes stereotypic movements with his head, swings.

He’s not yet speaking, and it’s possible he has a hearing delay.  He eats with help, does not yet holds a spoon or the bottle, still it is hard for him to chew a hard food. The level of understanding is low, does not have motivation to make an activity.

Nolan is a sociable child who enjoys playing with toys. He can cruise along stable support and is quite a little climber. Even though Nolan does not yet speak, he understands instructions. He likes moving to music, eats well and sleeps soundly.

Update Oct 2014:
From a family who met Nolan in October 2014: Nolan is an active little boy and very interested in the happenings in his environment. When we visited his room with our son who used to live there, he instantly tried to interact with our son who had crawled into the playpen with the other kids plus Nolan was watching what we were doing as well. Nolan cannot yet walk, but sits, stands, crawls, and cruises. He eats and sleeps well. Nolan still uses diapers, but his caretakers know his typical bathroom times and put him on the potty for them.

If he doesn’t go to school, his foster mom takes him out to eat breakfast, where he will eat noodles and steamed stuffed buns. If the weather is nice, he plays in the yard. He takes a two hour nap each day. After he wakes up, he watches cartoons or will play with other children in the yard. He then eats dinner and some fruit after that. He has deep sleep. His foster mom watches his facial expressions to determine if he needs to use the bathroom. She then asks him if he needs to go. If he says yes, she will take him to the toilet. He can take his pants off by himself, but needs help putting his pants back on. Now that he goes to school, his language is better than before. He has good imitating ability. Every morning he sings children’s songs he learned at kindergarten. He can put on and take off clothes with help, can go up and down stairs by himself; and he can eat without help (though he eats slowly since he can easily spill). He likes to smile at acquaintances. Sometimes he will call mama or nana and then continue to do his things. if you ask him to share his food, he will feed you and smile at you. Neighbors always say he is a quiet boy who has a ready smile. During summer vacation, his foster mom often takes him outside to let him experience more fresh things and to see and learn new things.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Robinson was home next Christmas celebrating with a forever family of his very own?

Down Syndrome

 

Since July 2007 he has been with a foster family. Per report written in 2010: At the age of 36-39 months he can walk alone quite steadily, and when he was walking he can stoop down to pick up the toy on ground and then go on walking. At present he can only call “baba”, but he can express his desire in body language, and if he wanted to drink water he will put his hand beside his mouth and look up. When he wanted to defecate or urinate he will make the sound and show actions familiar to his mother. Since he had learned to walk he had been very interested in outdoor activity, and he went to play games with other children in community every evening. He liked pulling his mother to go to the supermarket near to their home, and when they got there he will point at what he liked. He was very close to his father, and when his father came back home he will go out to welcome him.

At the age of 40-42 months he was very active, liked going out to play, even in cold days. He still did not speak much, besides father and mother he can say other words unclearly with the help of adults. He had to be fed, but he can drink water alone with cup with suction tubes. 43 months-present it has been too cold and he stays in house for most of the time. He likes to watch TV, and if there are children dancing in the program he will learn from them. He likes eating meat and is not choosy to food. He naps for 1-2 hours and has deep sleep. Sometimes he sleeps with adults, and sometimes he sleeps alone on his own bed. If he wants to go to toilet he will crouch and pull his trousers to tell adults sometimes. If adults remind him of going to toilet he will do so but they have to help him take off the trousers. He is very strong and seldom falls ill.

Single moms permitted, only one parent has to travel.

Boy, born January 2007
Down syndrome

Handsome Kelvin is 8 years old, and waiting for his family!

40626124650 Philip (1)

From a family who met him in June 2014:

This calm little guy came up to me with pleading eyes for attention and is just so polite. God has heard his prayers, and now he is listed for adoption! He is not overbearing or competitive at all. Rather, he is observant and inquisitive. He is about the size of a six year-old and just so gentle. I would take him home in a heartbeat if he was available before. He takes turns riding the red wagon around the orphanage grounds as the bigger boys pull him, and he gestures politely for fresh fruit when he sees it is available. He is kind to other children. He says a few words in his native language, and listened carefully when I was giving descriptions of my family photos. I have confidence that he would do wonderfully in any kind of family, and it is obvious– he can surely reciprocate love! He enjoyed throwing balls, going on walks, playing see-saw, and listening to English descriptions. Whoever adopts this little love will be so blessed to call him a beloved son.
