Jared

jared-2016BOY, born May 2007
This handsome young man, with dark hair and dark eyes, was born with a rare genetic condition called Stickler Syndrome.  His medical records also indicate microcephaly, a common symptom of SS.

Listed: June 3, 2010

Update May 2016: Jared has been transferred a while ago from his baby orphanage.

Individuals with Stickler syndrome experience a range of signs and symptoms. Some people have no signs and symptoms; others have some or all of the features described below. In addition, each feature of this syndrome may vary from subtle to severe.

A characteristic feature of Stickler syndrome is a somewhat flattened facial appearance. This is caused by underdeveloped bones in the middle of the face, including the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. A particular group of physical features, called the Pierre Robin sequence, is common in children with Stickler syndrome. Robin sequence includes a U-shaped or sometimes V-shaped cleft palate (an opening in the roof of the mouth) with a tongue that is too large for the space formed by the small lower jaw. Children with a cleft palate are also prone to ear infections and occasionally swallowing difficulties.

Many people with Stickler syndrome are very nearsighted (described as having high myopia) because of the shape of the eye. People with eye involvement are prone to increased pressure within the eye (ocular hypertension) which could lead to glaucoma and tearing or detachment of the light-sensitive retina of the eye (retinal detachment). Cataract may also present as an ocular complication associated with Stickler’s Syndrome. The jelly-like substance within the eye (the vitreous humour) has a distinctive appearance in the types of Stickler syndrome associated with the COL2A1 and COL11A1 genes. As a result regular appointments to a specialist ophthalmologist are advised. The type of Stickler syndrome associated with the COL11A2 gene does not affect the eye.

People with this syndrome have problems that affect things other than the eyes and ears. Arthritis, abnormality to ends of long bones, vertebrae abnormality, curvature of the spine, scoliosis, joint pain, and double jointedness are all problems that can occur in the bones and joints. Physical characteristics of people with Stickler can include flat cheeks, flat nasal bridge, small upper jaw, pronounced upper lip groove, small lower jaw, and palate abnormalities, these tend to lessen with age and normal growth and palate abnormalities can be treated with routine surgery.

Another sign of Stickler syndrome is mild to severe hearing loss that, for some people, may be progressive (see hearing loss with craniofacial syndromes). The joints of affected children and young adults may be very flexible (hypermobile). Arthritis often appears at an early age and worsens as a person gets older. Learning difficulties, not intelligence, can also occur because of hearing and sight impairments if the school is not informed and the student is not assisted within the learning environment.

Stickler syndrome is thought to be associated with an increased incidence of mitral valve prolapse of the heart, although no definitive research supports this.

Jared may be available with Nate and Janie.

Josiah

Guardian AngelJoshua OCT FormalBoy, born May 2007
H-C
Cerebral palsy, seizures

Listed: July 21, 2011

Josiah can be very interactive and can comprehend what is being said to him. He also has seizures that are being controlled with medication. He loves when people sing songs with him.  Josiah is a very happy and loving boy. He is always full of smiles.-Josiah-

Josiah can hold his head up, and is practicing learning how to sit, although he has not yet mastered this skill on his own. Josiah is very strong and his muscles are often tight; he is receiving therapy to help him relax and control his muscles better. Josiah is nonverbal, but can still express several of his needs very well; he will cry if he wants attention and will happily reward you with a smile when you talk with or sing to him.

From someone who works with him:  We have had the privilege of caring for Josiah for 3 years. He is the oldest child in our care and has been with us longer than any other child. Josiah was abandoned at a nearby hospital when he was 1. Josiah has cerebral palsy and requires special care and attention. He has limited control over his movement and needs support when sitting. For 3 years, our nannies and staff have cared for Josiah, fed him and bathed him. Ask any person who has cared for Josiah though and they will say that they are the one who was blessed.

When you are with Josiah, it is clear that God’s love resides in Josiah. Josiah can’t talk, but he loves to smile and interact with anyone who will talk to him. Josiah cannot sing like most of us, but each day during nanny prayer and singing Josiah joins in with a big smile. Our deep desire is for Josiah to join his forever family through adoption. We have had difficulty finding that family, but we know that God has a plan for Josiah . We also know that where ever he goes, Josiah will be a blessing as his loved ones bless and care for him.

Update Jan 2015:  Josiah has been with us longer than any other child and is waiting for his forever family. He was abandoned at a nearby hospital when he was a year old. Josiah has cerebral palsy. He can be very interactive and seems to comprehend what is being said to him. He does have seizures that are being controlled with medication. He loves when people sing songs with him. Josiah is a very happy and loving boy. He is always full of smiles.

Josiah can hold his head up, and is practicing learning how to sit, although he has not yet mastered this skill on his own. He prefers the tripod position while someone supports his efforts.

The dynamic duo – here come Rowan and Reisen. Their smile can light up a room and they are certain to win you over with their little boy charm. Both love cars and chocolate.

They appeared to be very hyper, having serious behavioral issues and mental delays. They changed families during hosting program because first hosting family couldn’t handle them.

Their sister can be adopted separately from them but adoptive family needs to have approval for three children in order for us to be able to separate them. She lives in a different orphanage from them.

Eric #2-7

eric-2Age: 8
Diagnosis: developmental delays

Eric just turned 8 years old. He’s attending kindergarten, where he works with a resource teacher on academic delays. The report from the teacher says, “ The attention of the child is characterized by a relatively good concentration. He is actively looking for attention and physical closeness. The speech is developing. He follows simple instructions. The active vocabulary is developing. He maintains good eye contact by communicating with an adult. In relation to the perceptions it Is important to explain by specifying and visualizing. No evidence of significant increased impulsivity, hyperkinetics, aggression and auto-aggression. He draws curves by going out of the sheet borders. He knows and points some body parts – nose, teeth and feet. He has basic cognitive structures – persistence of an object, understands simple instructions, performs simple instructions, recognizes basic shapes etc” He has formed ideas about the surrounding. He understands limited prepositions related to spatial relations. He orients in space: up, down, big, small. He follows verbal instructions, related to the everyday life. He holds a pencil correctly with prompting and colors. He likes to listen to music. He follows verbal instructions. The passive vocabulary of the child is significantly improved. The change in the active vocabulary is also significant. Some words are present. He tries to answer to an asked question with a word. He looks at books, points objects and names some of that. Says the names of everybody in his surrounding. Games for developing the fine motor skills are used in the sessions. He manipulates plastic material, soft and hard toys and objects of different material. He’s neat, writes on a loop with help, cuts with scissors on a drawn line and a curve, applies finished shapes, pieces puzzle of 6 parts, builds towers and houses with a builder (constructor). He likes to “write and scratch”, but is still not able to color and comply with a contour. He knows the main colors. Recognizes the red, yellow and green color. He folds with help a sheet in two. The stability of the attention is increased. The independence is developed on a better level by encouraging the individual performances – undressing, dressing, taking shoes on and off, collecting toys, arrangement of working materials and others. Sings with pleasure some children’s songs. There is some development in the perceptual-idea activity. The ideas of the surrounding world are enriched. He expresses different emotions by facial expression. He is positive and loving at first contact with an adult.

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.

Sage and Sven

Sage July 2016Sven July 2016

Two-year old Sage and eight-year old Sven are a beautiful sibling group. Even though Sage and Sven have been placed into different foster families, the Central Authority in their country requires that they be adopted together.

Listed July 2016

Per the social worker’s report, Sage is completely healthy and typically developing. Based on videos received in June 2016, Sage walks well, including on uneven terrain. She plays with toys, enjoys the company of domestic animals, and appears to be vocalizing, babbling and speaking words.

Sven walks independently and communicates easily even though it is sometimes difficult to understand him. He answers questions, names objects and people, and shows curiosity about his surroundings. Sven attends a school for children with special needs and loves to go. His foster mother reports that he takes medication to calm him as he tends to be very excitable and energized. During periods of anxiety, fear, sensory overload or other stressors, Sven can become extremely agitated. During these times, it is difficult to reach Sven with communication and it takes a while for him to calm. Sven has a wonderful and kind foster mother who takes great care of him.

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!

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.

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!

Frankie Lee

Frankie LeeBoy, born 2010
PRC
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?

Listed: Aug 18, 2015

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.
Could Ryan be the son you’ve been searching for?

Bairn (1) Bairn (2)Boy, born May 2010
PRC
Right hemiplegia, pigmented nevus on back of shoulder

Gorgeous Bairn lives with a foster family that has 4 other children and he gets along with them very well. Bairn’s gross motor skills have improved- he can run and climb as well as his peers. If he is in a hurry when he runs, he sometimes falls. His fine motor skills are also improving. He mainly uses his left hand, so the foster family encourages him to use his right as a helper hand as much as possible. Occupational therapy would really be very beneficial for him. Bairn enjoys singing and dancing in his preschool class! Maybe Bairn will sing and dance his way into your heart and eventually into your home.

He spent his first four months in an incubator, where he was diagnosed with Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and Hydrocephalus caused by Periventricular Leukomalacia. Due to prolonged incubation, he currently has vocal chord paralysis. He has delays in his gross and fine motor skills according to his age; however, he is able to search with his eyes for visual and aural stimuli, can open and look at his hands, and is able to hold objects in his hands. He is usually active, awake and aware of his surroundings, and with therapy will be able to continue to develop gross and fine motor skills.

This sweet boy deserves a loving family who can provide him with care and support as he continues to grow and progress.
