Frank

FrankFranklin-AsiaBoy, born May 2005
PRC
Postoperative left inguinal hernia and a cyst of pellucid septal cave

Listed: July 30, 2013

Bright eyed Frank is very extroverted and outgoing. He gets along well with others and is active and clever. He is 8 years old and has been diagnosed with postoperative left inguinal hernia and a cyst of pellucid septal cave. Frank has had no symptoms or discomfort so no treatment has been done for his cyst. Frank has been doing very well and has been living with a foster family since 2006. Under the care of his foster family, he has grown up healthily. Frank has a good appetite and likes to eat meat. He also loves apples, bananas, potato chips, and candy. He is not afraid of strangers and can say hello to strangers on his own initiative. Frank likes to spend time with his friends and loves cartoons. When he sees an exciting scene in the cartoon he will jump about joyfully. His favorite activity is riding bikes and going for outdoor walks in the summer.

Update 2014: In 2007 Frank’s foster parents noticed a swelling on the right side of his groin and took him to the hospital where surgery was performed for right inguinal hernia. Almost four years later they noticed swelling on the left side of his groin and he had surgery for left inguinal hernia. Frank is now reported to be healthy. His favorite foods are rice, noodles, mild, eggs, fish, meat, vegetables and fruit – he is not picky. At the time of his report in March 2014 he was in the 3rd grade and described as a very good student with special skills in computers. Frank is said to be a sensible and hardworking boy who is curious about new things. The report also states he is good at sports and his favorite summer activity is riding a bike outdoors. His favorite toys are cars and Transformers. Frank is described as a lovely and active boy who is praised by his foster parents and teachers, but in his heart, he wants to have his own family.

Update 2015:  Frank is a healthy boy who is a very good student with special skill in computers. His host family says he is a tender-hearted young man who is very smart and knows and understands a lot of English. He is cautious and likes to follow the rules, and he acts like a protective big brother to younger children in the program. He is enjoying the legos and the hot wheels race tracks and is very exact at following the directions to put new things together. He is also good at making up his own patterns with the legos. He had hernia surgery in 2011 but is now reported to be healthy.

In June, 2009, he had his palate repaired. On admission he can’t speak clearly; others can understand what he says with listening carefully. His language development is normal, and he can express his thoughts. After surgery he is improved in pronouncing, much clearer than before. Usually the teacher correct his pronunciation, encourage him to more speaking and more communication.

He is fairly extroverted; he likes any interested things, including all kinds of toys and games. Once he is interested in it, he would be seriously involved it.

Adam

AdamBoy, born 2004Adam
HIV, hydrocephalus

Listed: January 30, 2013

Adam is a sweet, easy to please little cuddle bug. He is very much like a cuddly, curious little toddler. When I first met him he did not seem interested in me at all, but as time went by he began to want affection, and would grab my hands if I stopped rubbing his head and put them back on his head.

One day I picked him up and from that moment on he wanted to spend most of my time there in my arms. When I arrived he’d jump up from his little wooden chair, and hurry over to me with his arms raised. If I didn’t pick him up fast enough he’d try to climb up into my arms using nearby chairs or beds, and he would not hesitate to grab items from my hands and set them down to free up my hands so I could hold him. He also began to cry whenever I left. He loves wind up toys and toys that vibrate, and would giggle happily and flap his hands to show how excited he was about them. His other favorite toys were a pony he enjoyed chewing on, any sort of car, and some legos that made a train. He is not verbal but was beginning to make noises to communicate. I tried to teach him to sign more one day, by signing hand over hand with him. When I asked him to sign it he took my hands and helped me sign it. He seems to me to have a need for love and affection that can only come from a loving family. I would love to see him thriving and meeting his full potential, as well as bringing joy to as many people as possible!

What a great grin!

From an adoptive family who met him:  I met Sammy in May 2012 and he was one of the sweetest kids I had ever met. Always ready with a smile and a hug! I brought things for all the kids in his group and he waited so patiently for his turn and gave me a big hug after. He was very kind and gentle with all the other kids, especially the one girl in the group. He and the other boys
