There are no significant irregularities as regards Polly’s psychomotor development. She demonstrates satisfactory verbal, non-verbal and eye contact. Her strength is correspondent to her bodily development. The child has normal mobility and well-coordinated movements. She would benefit from active physical activities and sports.   The girl has adapted well to her classmates at school.

Alice

AliceGirl, born December 2003
PRC
Developmental Delay

Alice is 9 years old and is very caring and sweet. She is diagnosed as being developmentally delayed, but the volunteer at camp found her to be a very smart girl who loves chatting about everything around her!!

What Alice’s camp counselor had to say:
“I am writing about my girl Alice whom I worked with at camp for a week. Alice is such a great girl! She is 9 years old, loves crafts, singing and dancing in front of people in her own way, and taking care of others. As I watched her, I noticed how kind and sweet she is. Alice is so kind to others, especially children who are with her, or those she lives with at her orphanage.

One of the best moments I had with Alice was when we read our goodbye letters to each other. She seems so tough and tried not to show her emotions to me all week, but when I read my letter to her and she read her letter to me, she started crying. She cried for a very long time, which made me emotional and she turned and looked at me and whispered “I love you.” It broke my heart, but made me so thankful to have this sweet girl in my life that I didn’t realize I needed, until God placed her there.

Alice looks a little small for her age, but has no physical needs. She is very active, talks a lot once she gets to know you, and like I have said before, LOVES kids! It is so neat to see her take care of those around her, make sure they have enough to drink, to eat, and that they are clothed well. Any family would be so blessed to have Alice in their life and I hope you consider adopting her!! She is so amazing and I’m blessed to know her and call her my little sister.”

Isolde

Isolde2Isolde3-2-croppedGirl, born 1999
Cerebral palsy
Additional information coming soon

 

Isolde is described as creative and eager.

From someone who met her:  Isolde is lovely. First I thought she couldn’t speak when I was there in the summer, ’cause it took her about 3 weeks before she would even say ‘thank you.’ But then she started to talk more and more. I started to do walking exercises with her. She could hardly stand on her legs by then. I practiced with her everyday and what I noticed is that she is a fighter. She worked so hard. She worked until she was bathing in sweat and totally tired. She wouldn’t stop before her legs couldn’t hold her anymore. Everyday we could walk further. First just one side of the building and in the end we could easily walk 2 rounds around the building. Though she needs quite some support. After the summer they gave her PT and she was walking way better when I was there in November again. She could walk with one hand then, which was totally impossible for her in the summer. And again she was fighting to learn more, but being inside the building all day would limit her. She is pretty smart too, I played games with her. One of the games was creating a ‘picture’ with little pins, just copying the example. The physical part of the game was the hardest. So we trained to pick up the pins, put them in and get them out. She is so wonderful! She smiles so sweet. She just stole my hard. In the beginning of the summer she had hardly any muscles in her leg and she was extremely skinny, but during the summer she got more muscles from exercising and in November she was doing even better. I’m so proud of this girl. If she will get the chance, she will reach so much, because she will fight for it. She would do so well in a family, because a family can give her the chance that she deserves and I know she will make the most of it.

Isolde’s best friend is Duane; who is also listed for adoption.

The pictures don’t do this dear one justice at all; she is gorgeous and so very sweet!!! She can’t walk on her own (she can if she is assisted!) but she is still quick! She comes over to me everyday and wants in my lap, to shake my hand, or give me a hug. She has SO much potential and I can just see the hunger for love and a Mothers touch in her eyes. She has been overlooked long enough!!! She is darling….truly!! ”

Do you see where I am?’

School is very hard for her and when she can’t do her school work it makes her very sad. Joy only lived with [the volunteer] for a few months, but she had improved greatly in that time. Her behavior was much better. She isn’t sure about her being able to live independently.

Carmen #1-9

DOB: 2002
Diagnosis: delays in all aspects of development

Carmen has spent most of her life in a family environment. She was raised by her birth mother until she was 3 years old. At that time, she was placed in a mental institution where the children are generally well cared for. At the age of 5, she was placed with a foster family. The family is missionaries and she lived with them for over 2 years, at which point they had to return to their home country. She moved from their home to another foster home, where she lived for over a year. At the age of 8, she was placed in a group home style orphanage, where she lives today. She was placed in the group home because her foster mother moved to a different town and could not take Carmen with her. The foster mother still visits her when she is able and takes her for weekend trips. She is well loved by therapists and others who’ve been involved in her care over the years and they’ve advocated for her to help her find a forever family.

Carmen is considered delayed in all aspects of her development. She feeds herself and drinks from an open cup. She walks and can go up and down steps independently. She cooperates with all self-help skills such as dressing and undressing. She maintains eye contact and responds to her name. Her speech is delayed, but she understands what is said to her. When she sees something she likes or wants, she will smile and clap. She interacts with the other children and participates in games and group activities. She is making progress in all aspects of her development. Her report has not been updated in over a year, so we are working to get information on her current developmental progress.

She has colorful imagination, and often builds out various blocks shapes, if she builds up a house, she will be glad and want the aunt to praise her.

Usually she likes to watch TV with her friends, if see the picture she loved, she will be very excited and point the TV and tell everyone the name of the person and the meaning of the picture. She can handle her daily life basically, can use chopsticks, knifes and forks, can put on her clothes and shoes, brush her teeth and go to the toilet by herself. She is sympathetic and ready to help.

Aubree

AubreeGirl, born Aug. 1999
Diagnoses: arthrogryposis; mental delay

 

Aubree is very active, easy-going, and friendly. Currently, she lives in a special school-orphanage.

 

From one of our adoptive families who visited with her in August 2012:   She truly is a ray of sunshine!   She comes out to greet us in her wheelchair (she has good upper body strength, her legs are fixed straight out in front of her and are tiny.   She doesn’t appear to have AMC in her upper limbs at all.   She is extremely friendly and happy, she enjoys singing and dances in her wheelchair. She can also use her upper body strength to scoot around the floor. I am so excited that she is available because I know she will be a wonderful daughter if just given a chance.   This girl just exudes love and happiness!   The orphanage does provide the children with an education, and even music instruction.  We were able to see Aubree perform in a concert that the children gave for their visitors (they have help from humanitarian groups that come in to work on the building and work with the children).  If anyone asks about her, I would love to talk with them more about the orphanage and the children there.   They have my heart!

Update June 2013:
Aubree is a happy, loving, and well-adjusted little girl. She is popular in her groupa and loves to talk to people and attend the Montessori program at her orphanage. That being said, she is a child you don’t want to turn your back to. She can be very aggressive, and bites, pinches, and hits you when she wants attention or is jealous. She is also very dominant and wants to have your attention at all times, which is difficult when there are other children in the room. While she is very smart, I believe she has some mental delay, though how much of this is due to being raised in an orphanage environment is unclear. She was thrilled when I told her a lot of people loved her and were praying for her, and in the right family she would do very well. It would be best if she were the youngest or only child in a family in my opinion, so she can have all the attention she deserves.

Update from a family who met her in Feb 2014:
Aubree was one of the first ones I met. I’ll be honest, I’ve read her profile, and I was worried. She’s in the pictures we had of our new daughter in the new orphanage, and to think that she was the type of child described in the second “someone met her” description, was scary! I don’t know what brought about the difference yesterday (maybe they’re working with her, or she was just having a bad day before?), but she hung out with us for a while, and we didn’t see any of those behaviors. Our youngest daughter loved her- she was very gentle and nurturing with her, and our son, and very social! We talked for a while, with a nanny and our facilitator translating for us. She likes school very much, especially art, and writing and drawing. She likes animals (cats, dogs, etc). She LOVES jewelry, and hairbows (the more giant the better!). She very much wants brothers and sisters, and when I asked her if she wanted older ones or little ones, she said little (and I believe it, she was very interested in our five kiddos, and loved to snuggle them). She held our daughter and she walked her through our photo book, describing everything- Aubree was so attentive, and her face looked so wistful.

Physically, she has obvious arthrogryposis, although she seems to have some flexibility in her hands, because she was holding a banana (no peel) and eating sections of it by herself. Her legs are pretty small, and very stiff. She struggles with speech, not with the thoughts, but with getting it out, and I believe she would benefit from speech therapy. She was very polite and affectionate as well, and although she does have some obvious cognitive delays, she seems eager to learn new things and to be a part of things.

When she was with us, I had our children playing blocks on one of the beds, and although she watched, and looked very interested in what they were playing, she never attempted to roll over there or monopolize attention. She talked with her friends, with our facilitator, and with me, for a while, especially when she realized that I might know a family for her- which totally broke my heart, because she was so eager to be adopted. At one point, I had turned away to say something to someone else, and she was trying to get my attention- her arms do appear to be affected by the arthrogryposis from what I saw, because her elbows didn’t bend much, and her hands are turned at an unusual angle, and she grabbed at my shirt sleeve, trying to get my attention (she didn’t know my name then). Her hands are strong, from rolling the wheelchair, and her grasp is poor because of the arthrogryposis, so she had to kind of sling her arm and try to close her fingers on my sleeve. I could see the awkwardness of it for her, but she definitely wasn’t afraid to try! She’s beautiful in person- these pictures don’t do her justice at all. And I’m sorry my pictures are blurry, kids don’t stay still long and I was using my camera with a slower capture speed because the room was a bit dim.

Chrystyna

Chrystyna 2013

Guardian AngelGirl, Born Jan 17, 2002

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!

Chrystyna is a beautiful, brown haired, brown eyed girl who deserves a chance at a better life!  Her official orphanage papers say she has developmental delays/difficulties from birth, but nothing more specific than that.  It is possible she has FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome).  Her biological mother  was deprived her parental rights in December 2004, and the biological father is not known.  Chrystyna has so much potential, and will be a precious gift to any family who adopts her.

Chrystyna is already living in an institution, so we need a family for her right away!

Chrystyna does have a sister, Karen.   Karen does not have any diagnosed special needs.   If you are interested in adopting both girls, you can do so, or Chrystyna is free to be adopted separately.   Please inquire!

UPDATE:  God has been watching Chrystyna.  She was recently transferred out of the institution into a wonderful facility, where they teach these children, work with them, and they appear very well cared for.  The difference in the few girls who were transferred OUT of the institution is incredible!   Please give these girls a second chance for a loving family!

If you are unfamiliar with FAS, please spend some time researching this condition.  Just as with Down syndrome, FAS and FAE have a wide variation of effects on each child, both medically, physically, and cognitively.   This is typically dependent on how long during the pregnancy the mother consumed alcohol, and of course, how much.   There is no way to know this ahead of time.

From a family who met her, Sept 2012:
She is getting settled into her new environment. She seems to be very comfortable in her groupa. She is very beautiful and still has a lot of potential.  She deserves a chance!

From someone who met her, June 2013:
During the music performance, she was constantly stimming really fast (like it looks like she is being fast forwarded) and after they finished she was taken out by a nanny. Not sure what is going on with her;  If interested families want to see the videos they are welcome to! I know a family tried to take pictures of her last year but couldn’t get a good one because she moved so much!

Devora

Devora

Girl, born February 2002
Mental delay, HIV

Creative, eager

Devora is a real sweetie pie! She loves to have her head rubbed, and enjoys being tickled. Her smiles and giggles are absolutely heart melting! She does not talk, stand, or walk as far as I could tell. Her idea of mischief is to kick off a shoe or hide her arm inside of her sweatshirt, and she’d giggle as these things were corrected.

She seemed to find it very amusing when I would ask her where her hand was, then say “There it is” as I removed it from inside of her shirt. This became a game, and she would giggle as she hid her arm again as soon as I removed it from inside of her shirt. She is a very content little girl, and something as simple as a spiky ball could put a big grin on her face. I never saw her upset as long as she was allowed to play in either her bed or her chair, but she would become upset if I tried to move her to a more unfamiliar area to play.

From her medical records:  chondrodysplasia

As with all children living in these difficult conditions,  this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger.  It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child.    These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

Developmental delays, possible mild Thalssemia

Melody is diagnosed with moderate delayed mental development and Hypochromic microcytic anemia- possible thalassemia or iron deficiency anemia. Her file mentions beta thalassemia minor, but it does not appear that she receives regular transfusions at this time. She may have thalassemia intermedia. A prospective family should be prepare for any form of thalassemia. www.choosingthalassemia dot blogspot dot com is an excellent resource to learn more about thalassemia. Melody does not have good motion development and her mental development is delayed. A prospective family should be prepared for mild CP as well, even though that is not on the list of diagnoses. She was admitted to the orphanage at 5 years old. At that time, she could sit, stand, and walk alone. After she got comfortable with her new surroundings, she was polite and could get along well with people. At the age of 6 years, she could go up and down stairs holding onto something and could pick her favorite toys, but her language development was delayed. She could greet adults positively. At the age of 8 years, her motion of both upper limbs was not good and her walking position was not normal. She could wash her hands, could put on and take off her clothes independently, and could button and unbutton. She is now receiving special education in the center, can recognize common colors and shapes, can participate in some simple activities with kids, and can read some short children’s songs with teachers and friends, but she cannot read alone. Melody is gentle and shy, can get along well with others, and is very happy when playing games with children. Occasionally she is obstinate. She likes to share toys and food with the other children.

Epilepsy

Dina is 10 years old and has epilepsy but it is not very often that she has an episode (2-3 per month). When she does, it only lasts a couple of minutes and her arms will get stiff and her eyes will shake. Sweet foods are a trigger. Dina really love to run and sometimes she is even the fastest in her class. She can count very high and write numbers. Dina is a little behind her friends when it comes to learning, but it is probably because she cannot go to a formal school due to her epilepsy.

Dina’s caregivers say that she is very hospitable, kind, and helpful. She likes to help clean up after the younger kids in the orphanage. Her favorite thing to do is SING!

Molly and Marcey #

Molly MarceyAge: 10
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy- quadriplegic

The girls were raised by their birth family until they were 3 years old. They both have CP that effects all 4 limbs. Both girls recently had tendon release surgery to extend range of motion in their knees. Both girls suffer from muscle spasms common in children with CP, which impacts their motor skills.

Both girls can independently roll over and sit in a supported seat controlling their head and upper body with proper supports for their legs. Both girls will engage and interact with other children and caregivers by following movement with their eyes/head, reacting with laughter or spontaneous sounds and reaching for toys. Both girls have good hand/eye coordination and can reach for and grasp a toy/object and move it to their mouth. The girls are placed in adaptive chairs in the main group area so that they can observe and interact with other children, which they enjoy. The recommendation for their future care includes physical therapy to address joint contractures and prevent future ones, medication/treatment options to address muscle spasms, speech therapy and exposure to other peer models.

 

Because we only have these children’s file for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.
