Boy, born 2010 HIV, cardiomyopathy, inguinal hernia, rickets, other congenital valgus deformity of the feet, anemia, disorder of the brain Will try to get his updated picture soon. Diagnosis are also dated when he was a baby so many things could have gone except for HIV.
Boy, 5 years old
HIV, Thrombocytopenia (a blood clotting disorder)
This adorable sweet boy is doing well with his medication regime. He has weekly blood tests for the Thrombocytopenia. He takes meds twice a day for HIV. His levels are now normal and the virus is apparently undetectable. He has those blood tests every 2 wks. He likes swimming (he can swim underwater), building with blocks, and playing with cars. This child is naïve, very trusting, and has no fear of strangers. He is good with other kids, but timid & afraid of rough/big kids. There are no limitations on his activity due to his health. He can run, jump, and swim. He uses knee pads & a helmet when riding a bike in order to prevent injury. He is a gentle boy who use to cry often but he has gotten much better and more confident. He had some significant issues with decay in his front teeth; he saw the dentist in fall 2015 and had his teeth fixed. Now that his teeth are no longer a source of constant infection, his platelet levels have dropped within normal range!
He lives with a foster mother who works very hard to prepare her foster children for adoption.
Juliana: girl, born 2012, diagnosed with HIV and mild mental delay
Lily: girl, born 2010, HIV, disorder of brain, mixed specific development disorders, umbilical hernia, Anaemia (on right)
Must be adopted together; the sisters are in different orphanages (in different towns) because of age difference, but in the same region, so it will be 1 court for both siblings.
Married couples only. Older parents and large families OK. Travel required.
Boy, born 2010
HIV disease resulting in multiple infections, Disorder of brain, Divergent concomitant strabismus, Atopic dermatitis, Umbilical hernia
This attached picture is NOT recent, but it is what we have available for now. He has 3 older half-siblings, it is believed they live with family at this time.
From a family who met Cody spring 2014: we were able to spend a good amount of time with him. He was delightful! He loved holding our hands when we went for walks outside, and he loved playing ball with my husband. He seemed healthy, smart, well-behaved, and kind to the other kids. We often saw him acting kind of like a big brother, helping some of the others with things like zipping their jackets. I think he would do great in a family with other kids. We were sad to say goodbye to him, and he asked us when his mom and dad were coming.
Cody: Mild mental delay, Atrial septal defect, HIV disease resulting in encephalopathy, Hypertrophy of tonsils
They must be adopted together. She is in a different orphanage because of her age, but in the same region, pretty close to each other. It will be the same court for both children.
He changed 3 orphanages already and this summer he will be transferred again because of his school age; he is scheduled to be transferred before school starts in September. Where is he going is NOT good! He needs OUT!! He is a very good and friendly boy and needs a family asap!
