Developmental Delays

Listed: Oct 19, 2015

Ashton is a lovely boy who struggles with some mental developmental delays. He is timid at first, but after warming up he is a very compassionate and apathetic child.

Ty (1)Boy, born 2010

Microtia, absence of iris (Aniridic keratopathy?)

Ty is a handsome little guy who will be 5 years old in September. He was found abandoned when he was about 4 months old. His initial exam at the orphanage discovered he has microtia affecting his right ear. Ty is able to hear. In fact, the orphanage staff reports his hearing is very good! Ty also has an absence of iris in both eyes. They have diagnosed him with cataracts, however, with the iris issue, he may have aniridic keratopathy.  Ty’s file was done when he was 2 years old, and we are waiting for more recent info. At 2, he was climbing into and out of his crib, and loved to play with toys. Ty was imitating, and saying a few words. His receptive speech was very good. Ty (at 2) did not like to be alone. That is the one time he would be very sad, Ty needs a family…one with several kids would be great! That way, he would always have someone around to play with. No more loneliness! Ty is waiting for you!

Severe delay of physical and mental development

Listed: Aug 25, 2015

VIDEOhttps://youtu.be/i4KTSYVhRmU

 

From a family that met him 6/15:

We spent about a week with this sweet boy when we were adopting our son in June 2015. He is so desperate for love. He called me momma and begged my daughter and me to hold him. We loved on him as much as possible and he soaked it up. He picked up English words very quickly, and remembered day after day that I had hand sanitizer in my purse and asked for it by saying, “soap!” He loved to play ball with my kids, and the nannies would let him push the baby carriage around during walks. He has the most infectious giggle I’ve ever heard. He walks well, but the nanny indicated that he has issues with his knees. It didn’t stop him, though!

He needs a good, patient, and loving family to give him what he needs. He is so skinny and needs good nutrition. He has very minor orphanage behaviors, but from the progress he made just being with us for a few days, I know he will flourish in a caring family. He will be transferred to a horrible place (the director of the orphanage told me it is horrible), likely very soon, since he’s almost 4.

This region is beautiful and very cost efficient. The orphanage director is lovely. The facilitators are amazing, and the judge is hilarious and wonderful! You will be able to stay in a hotel and walk to the orphanage and enjoy the beauty and culture of a wonderful town.

LOTS of videos available!

Maximilian

Maximilian (1)Boy, born 2010

Cerebral palsy

Maximilian is an adorable little guy who recently turned 3 years old. He came into care as a newborn, and was diagnosed with CP. Max has good fine motor skills, excellent speech (although they say he has a short tongue tie), and is able to walk…but not for long distances. Max’s head tilts to the right; this could be a result of the CP. Maximilian is a delightful little boy, whose cognitive skills are on target. His receptive speech is great, and he follows instructions well. He can easily express his needs. The nannies describe him as “strong and brave”. They also said when he sees the other kids walking and doing things he would like to do he wants to be like them. Max works very hard when exercising…he wants to be strong and able to run and play with his friends. Max need a family, good therapy, and treatment to straighten his neck. Max needs you!

Daniel just turned four years old. Daniel was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus and he was abandoned when he was only two days old. He had corrective surgeries for both conditions in August and September 2014 and is now doing well (aside from a strange haircut).

We visited Daniel at his orphanage at the end of June, and he was just adorable. He has a scar on his back from his meningocele surgery and scars on the back of his head from his hydrocephalus surgery, but they’re not too bad. The best news is that he runs and walks well and he has both bowel and bladder control. Daniel was fascinated by the games on our iPad. Could Daniel be your son?

Frankie Lee

Congenital heart defect

Frankie Lee, a sweet little boy, is five years old. He was abandoned at eight months. Frankie was born with a congenital heart disease (complex single atrium, single ventricle) and when we visited with him in late June, his lips and fingernails were a bit blue, so we knew his cardiac needs were pressing. We were able to have him transferred to China Little Flower, and a few weeks ago Frankie had surgery (pulmonary vein diversion and a central shunt). He has made a great recovery and he has returned to his foster family back in his province. He may need additional surgery down the road but his condition is much improved now.

Frankie Lee is reported to have normal intelligence but hasn’t attended school yet due to his cardiac condition..

Frankie Lee is a bit shy and very attached to his foster mom. He loves listening to music and dancing along to the rhythm. Could Frankie Lee be your son? Can you provide the cardiac care he needs?

Ryan is a sweet, shy little boy. He was abandoned outside a hospital when he was about 12 months old. Shortly after coming into orphanage care, he had surgery for a meningocele and also had a shunt placed to decrease the pressure in his head caused by hydrocephalus. The procedures were successful and he has recovered well. Ryan has good bowel and bladder control and his latest medical report says he’s healthy now.

We visited Ryan in his orphanage in late June and were taken in by his shy smile. He enjoyed playing with our iPad. Ryan demonstrated his excellent walking and running, and sang us a song. His video will melt your heart.
Ryan lives with a foster family. He sleeps with his foster mother and is very attached to her. Ryan is described as introverted and not very talkative. His motor and speech development are a bit delayed.

Ace (1)acerBoy, born October 2011

Lower limb weakness

Listed: June 2015

Acer is quite the cutie! Acer is diagnosed as having lower limb weakness. He came into care at the approximate age of two, so he has only been in the orphanage for a little over a year and a half. His nannies report that he has big beautiful eyes and is very handsome….that is clear from his pictures! When his file was prepared in Oct. 2014, he could stand up and walk while holding onto something or holding someone’s hand. He could also walk by pushing something like a small stool. He is cooperative and can help put on and take off his own clothes and shoes. Acer’s favorite toy is the wooden rocking horse! He can get on and off of it and likes sitting and riding on it. Acer likes to hold the milk bottles to help feed the younger children. He also likes playing outside. The slide and swings are his favorite, but he enjoys playing with balls and toy blocks too. He can build a tower with 5-6 blocks. He doesn’t want the other kids to touch his blocks or he’ll cry. Acer likes taking baths and playing in the water. He eats noodles, eggs, and bread regularly. Acer receives some physical therapy, but would benefit so much more from the love and support of his own family.

Listed: June 2015

Meet Jeremy! Jeremy just celebrated his 4th birthday. He is an outgoing and energetic little boy who loves playing games. Jeremy will help his therapy teachers clean up and organize the toys in the rehabilitation room. Though he is missing fingers and toes on all four limbs, he does many things for himself, such as eating meals and putting on his shoes. His language is somewhat delayed, likely because his cleft palate has not been repaired yet. He understands simple directions and can point to his ears, nose, mouth and hands when asked. He walks well on his own and can go up and down stairs. He especially enjoys music and likes to kick a ball around when he plays outside. Jeremy has the best smile- he just radiates happiness! We hope adorable Jeremy will be home to celebrate his 5th birthday with a forever family of his own!

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!

Emerson (2)Emerson (1)Boy, born October 2011
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.

Listed: Aug 2013

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.

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!
