Olaf is an adorable little guy. He has been hospitalized a few times due to heart arrhythmia (it is apparent when he runs a fever), and once with CMV (cytomegalovirus) from which he recovered.

At 13 months he was crawling and standing with one hand supported. He could stand for long periods of time. Olaf loves toys, and he really loves his nanny! He could imitate words, and his favorite toy was a toy cell phone. (Note to prospective parents – guard your phones!) Olaf is ready to be loved by his own parent(s), and will keep you busy! Are you ready to give this little cutie some warm hugs?

Kollen #58-11

KollenBoy, Age: 3
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy- mixed form (impacts his legs); delays in development

Kollen has started taking independent steps. He also crawls, sits, pulls up to a standing position holding on to a support, stays up for a short time without support, and walks holding on to two hands. His fine motor skills are improving. He fits in 3 cups, winds and unwinds toys on screws, “reads” books. He plays well with toys and explores their functions, imitates activities demonstrated to him, knocks on door before going in, claps his hands, stamps his feet, shows where his belly is. He eats with a spoon and attempts to do it independently. He is a calm and quiet child, makes a good eye contact, smiles, delights in interaction, recognizes and differentiates between the adults, has an emotional bond to a caregiver that works 1:1 with him. He pronounces sounds and syllables and currently says 3 words. He also used gestures to communicate his wants and needs.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

PRC
Progressive Muscular Dystrophy

Emerson is a shy, quiet, and lovely boy. Though he’s fairly introverted around strangers, once he’s in a familiar environment he’s quite lively! He loves playing with blocks, and even by himself he will be very quiet and focused when building with them! Emerson was initially diagnosed with liver
Emerson (3) dysfunction, but when it didn’t respond to treatment they tested for muscular dystrophy (elevated liver enzymes are often found in children with MD from the muscle breakdown as opposed to a liver dysfunction), and found he was positive. Currently they don’t see any symptoms of the muscular dystrophy- he can sit, crawl, and walk while holding onto something! Emerson also demonstrates good fine motor skills; he can scribble with a pen, pick up small objects with his thumb and forefinger, stack two blocks, and turn the pages of a book. When looking at books he loves to point out the pictures. He can feed himself finger foods, and cooperates when getting dressed. He understands simple instructions, like being told to pick up his toys, and can point out his eyes and nose when ask. Emerson is able to imitate simple words like “mom” and “dad.” This sweet boy is waiting for his family. Are you the ones he waits for?

repaired meningomyelocele, possible mild scoliosis

Listed: Feb 11, 2015

Jamieson is a bright, smiley four year old boy who is considered very bright and a favorite of the nannies in his orphanage. He came into care as an infant and was diagnosed with a myelomeningocele (a birth defect in which a portion of the spinal cord and its covering, the meninges, protrudes from the back) and myelosyringosis (cavities in the spinal column). At one year of age he had a successful surgery to repair his spinal cord defects. He was walking even before his surgery and continues to be an energetic, active boy fond of games and playing with toys. He can talk, run, jump, feed and dress himself, and often volunteers to help with chores. Jamieson sleeps well, has a great appetite, and is fully potty trained. At his last update he was almost 40 inches and weighed 35 pounds. Although his file states that he had delayed mental development, the orphanage explains that this was due to language delay when he didn’t respond to the doctor examining him. Jamieson no longer carries this diagnosis and the nannies say he is on target for his age and is normal in his development. This sweet boy is ready for a forever family to make him their own!

Apert Syndrome

Be prepared to cuddle and hug as they are Milo’s favorite things to do!  And how could you possibly resist, after you meet this sweet, happy and handsome little toddler? Milo came into care at just a few days old and was diagnosed with Apert Syndrome and laryngomalacia.

He had a difficult start but with the love and attention of his foster family he grew stronger and began to catch up with his milestones. By summer 2013 he could sit up independently, respond when called, frequently share a smile, and scoot around in his walker. He loved to be playfully teased, cuddled and hugged and to play on a cell phone.

Milo lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with his older foster sister with whom he is very close. It would be wonderful if he and Mikayla could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

Alec

Alec April 2014Alec RRBoy, born May 2011
PRC
anophthalmia, developmental delays

Alec is a beautiful darling little boy.

Alec was born with one missing eye, a condition typically corrected with a prosthetic eye. He has good vision in his one eye and does not appear to have hearing loss. Alec has developmental delays that may be due to brain damage or brain malformation, in addition to lack of stimulation in his first year of life. Alec was in the care of An Orphan’s Wish for over a year and then was transferred to Little Flower. In the care of these loving organizations he has made some progress in his physical strength and development, but he is still severely delayed. Alec can sit up and can make eye contact, but he is not interested in toys. Alec loves being held and responds to tickles and cuddles. He currently does not attempt to communicate verbally but he laughs and coos. Alec also has feeding issues. Alec needs the unconditional love of a family devoted to give him access to all the therapies and early intervention services that he needs to reach his full potential. These services are not available for him in China. He needs to come home to a family who will see the value of this little boy and shower him with the love that he deserves.

For more information, photos, or questions about Alec, please contact Nathalie.

Clayton, April 2015

Twin boys, born August 2010

Updated pictures and medical info April 2015

Clayton — Cerebral palsy. taking anticonvulsant therapy

His twin brother, Caleb, passed away in 2017

Listed: Oct 16, 2013

From someone who met them in 2013:
(Brother 1)  He is in with a much younger groupa. He goes outside twice daily when it is nice, and this orphanage does physical therapy five times a week. He makes eye contact, but is in his own little world until you talk directly to him. He appears kind of zoned out, and then I said his name and stroked his cheek and his whole body came to life, just longing to be touched and tickled. He arched his back and smiled, but I wasn’t allowed to pick him up. He has grown too long for his stroller. I put a velcro wrist rattle on him and he purposefully moved his left arm to interact with it immediately. He is well nourished there, but he will really need a mama’s touch to help him grow. His teeth look like they are in great shape. He uses his arms, but I did not see him move his legs, though he was certainly wiggling from one side to the other and is a kid who would really like to be on the move! He is not in the same groupa as his brother. Kids are generally grouped by what they are eating, and his brother was in the groupa for kids doing formula and purees. I think he may be on only formula still. It was so hard to leave him behind!

31009173432 G31009112817 B

(Brother 2)  Several days later, I saw who I thought was the same child in a different stroller, but the nannies corrected me when I called him by his brothers name, slowly communicating that this was his twin brother. They look SO much alike! The first day I saw him, he was badly in need of a diaper change and I showed the nannies. He was laying flat on his back in the outdoor playpen, and when I came back to return my daughter to the groupa, he was still there an hour later, unchanged in diaper and position. The next day I saw him, though, one of the sweet nannies was playing music on her ipod, and he was laying close to her in a stroller. Although he didn’t interact with the music, he was very quick to respond to my voice. The second I stopped talking, he stopped smiling and zoned out again. But, he was so responsive to touch and baby talk!  He pushed his body around in the stroller with his legs AND arms, and had a lot of good neck strength. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is only being limited by the assumptions of his diagnosis. As we left our daughter’s groupa for the last time, we saw him being lovingly carried down to his physical therapy appointment. I think it was a sign of good things to come for these boys!

Neither boy is using meaningful speech, though both babble. Videos available. Wonderful region to adopt from, especially if one parent needs to stay alone for a time.

Ezra

Ezra May 2013 (2)

ezra-3Boy, born Oct 2011 congenitalguardianangel
internal hydrocephalus operated;  anemia;  protein-energy deficiency

Ezra has had a shunt placed, and is doing better.  His adoption may necessitate consultations with medical personnel, to safely transport him home.

From someone who met Ezra in 2013:    Ezra is absolutely precious! He is sweet and adorable and oh so lovable!  He laughs when his toes are tickled, or when someone around him laughs or talks or sings to him. He often smiles or laughs so hard his chubby cheekers make his eyes close. He ha s learned to blow spit bubbles and coo. It is hard for me to tell if he is able to use his limbs normally, but he is able to move from his back to his side with little or no assistance. He has not yet learned to play with toys, but he has a very strong grip and enjoys holding my finger. I was told he can see, but not very well. I observed his eyes moving rapidly from side to side, and sometimes appearing to be looking in two different directions. In spite of this there were other times in which he appeared to be quite focused and looking right at us. He has absolutely stolen my heart, and I hope that he will find a family that can help him meet his full potential!

These pictures are from May, 2013.

Caius and Anne are in the same orphanage with Ezra.

Large families welcome; married couples only.

This sweet boy is very energetic and friendly. He loves kisses and cuddles.

He was neglected by his biological mother and made a huge progress after his placement to a foster family. He attends a small preschool with 4-5 other children since September 2016 and enjoys it very much. His vocabulary enlarged and he can concentrate for a long time. He knows kids and caregivers names and has no problem with sharing toys. Everybody likes him and per his caregivers’ opinion he can be a leader in his group.

He has a good appetite but very fragile and petite. He can eat without help. He still wear diapers and learning how to use a potty. He likes to help cleaning the house and we have a video where you can see his energy and excitement of vacuuming the floor!
