JadeGirl, born 2001
Mild Mental Delays

From a family that met her in early 2015:
She is very happy, loves to take pictures of everything especially selfies! She speaks some English and has been hosted before. I think she would LOVE to help cook and clean as long as she had a mom to do it with! She liked dressing up and had skirts on most days. She clung to me often and even kissed me when she said goodbye for the last time. She was very bouncy possibly even a little hyper but not totally obnoxious. I was also told she can be bad but I didn’t see any inappropriate behaviors while I was there.

Slight mental delay, simple astigmatism

From a family who met her in 2014:

This young lady is very sweet! She is in school and just finished the 3rd level. Betsy likes to color, read, run, swing on the playground, and dance.

ChelsiaGirl, born January 2002
PRC
Delayed Development

Chelsia ages out in January 2016 – she needs a family to be in country to adopt her, prior to her birthday!

Beautiful Chelsia recently turned 13. Normally that would be very exciting, but for Chelsia it means she now has less than a year for her family to find her and for them to be in her country. Chelsia must be adopted before her 14th birthday or she will age out and likely face a life in an institution. Chelsia is diagnosed with delayed development. Chelsia is shy at first, but she likes communicating with people once she is familiar with them. She enjoys reading books and watching tv. Chelsia’s teachers say she is not good at math, but it does not seem to affect her socially. She is energetic and is often found with a smile on her face! Chelsia enjoys playing with toys, but she enjoys puzzles and drawing the most. She can express her will and she is very polite. She is independent with taking care of her own needs and will help adults when she is able. Chelsia has a good appetite. Her favorite foods are dumplings, vegetables, fruits, sweets, and snacks.

 shayla june 2013Girl, born 2004

Diagnoses: deep mental delay. Cerebral paralysis- double spastic form, microcephaly. Strabismus, divergent squint, and Optic atrophy. First degree anemia.

Sweet little Shayla could tremendously use a family and medical attention to help her thrive. She has already been living in this orphanage for 3 years and risks soon having to be transferred to a place where adoption will be next to impossible.

Her speech is not well developed, she holds toys in her hands for brief periods of time (but she sure does love to hold stuffed animals!), she has a reaction when you say her name but she is not able to communicate back but she smiles. She walks with support- can”t walk independently. Children in this orphanage need families! They do not receive enough interaction/therapy to help them thrive. They are seen as hopeless but we know that is not true!

Update June 2013:
This is not a great picture [on the right] but she would NOT sit still. She was wanting to move!! She thought it was so funny and would not stop laughing and rocking back and forth about the camera. The nannys also were laughing with her- her laugh and happiness is very infectious.

Lauren says “HI Mama!!  I’m here waiting for you!”  (in this photo she is riding a rocking horse!)

Lauren is a super-sweet and active little girl.  She is very social and affectionate, and will do well in a family setting.

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.

Girl, born July 2004
PRC
cerebral palsy

 

Jessica is currently 8 years old. She is a shy and sensitive little girl. She is also timid.

Jessica was abandoned by her parents in front of our institute in 2005 due to her cerebral palsy. At the time, her complexion was dark and she was skinny. She could neither walk nor talk. In the institute, she is a very good girl who did not cry without reason. We all treasure her. When she interacts with other children, she likes to hold hands with them and touch their faces. Most interestingly, she takes very good care of her toys as they are always the cleanest and complete after she plays with them. For all of this, she is constantly praised by our caretakers.

Because of her cerebral palsy, Jessica has limitations in movement and speech. She received rehabilitation treatment in the institute for a period of time. From July 2011, she received rehabilitation treatment  for half a year. Currently, she can walk slowly when holding onto something. She can also say some simple words. For example, she can say the names of all the children in the institute. Because she is timid, she cannot walk freely for fear of falling. She’s afraid to step forward and would sometimes just sit on the floor. We would tell her encouraging words everyday, for Jessica is a child in need of much encouragement.

Cambria smiling March 2014Girl, born January 2005

Anophthalmos (absence of eyes)

 

What a sweet little girl!  She is walking independently.

Married couples only, large families welcome!

Update June 2013:
Don’t let Cambria’s pictures fool you. She is happy and full of life. Usually, she is stuck in bed for her own safety, as the nannies are afraid she could fall or run into something and hurt herself. When I took her out, she was able to walk, run, and dance to the music playing on the TV in the room. She loves dancing! She started laughing when I clapped my hands in front of her face and when I sneezed. She is an absolutely angelic little girl. While I do believe she has some institutional autism, she would be a joy in any family, and with love and proper care will thrive.

Update March 2014:
Although she mostly lays around because she cannot see, she walks and dances; she loves music. She is extremely gentle, and sensitive to noises.  She loves to be swung around and rocked gently, and that also makes her giggle.

Oh, Noel!  ;(  Noel was born with hydrocephaly and severe CP.   She has had surgery and has a shunt for her hydrocephalus, but she is still just “existing” for right now.  She is blessed to still be at the baby house….the director can’t bear to send her on.

There is no way to know her potential until she is out of an orphanage and in her own family setting.  She will likely require 24 hour care.   But she deserves a family of her own!

Because of her severe special needs, any family considering a commitment for Noel should have experience caring for a child with these significant needs.

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!  Valerie has been transferred.

Isn’t Valerie cute??  She is diagnosed with hypothyroidism.  She also has strabismus (crossed/lazy eyes).    She is diagnosed with developmental delay, and shows many of the facial characteristics of a child with FAS (Fetal Alcohol syndrome).  But she is a darling girl, very active, loving and affectionate!   She is facing the institution soon.  I hope a family is out there waiting just for her!

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.

Donations will be accepted for this child when further information is received.

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.

Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.

Girl, born August 2000

Polly is a 12-year-old girl with a mild mental delay who has a developmental disorder of speech and language. She is in need of dental care due to some issues with her teeth.

Polly is relatively well-developed physically when compared to the age norms.  The lack of parental care, a mother’s caress and physical and emotional contact in early infancy has affected the child’s psychological development negatively by lowering the quality of her behavioral activity.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

Isolde2isolde-2015-1Girl, born November 1999
Cerebral palsy
Additional information coming soon

#AGINGOUT November 2015

Isolde is described as creative and eager.

From a volunteer who visited with her in July 2014:  “Isolde is really hitting puberty, it’s cute to see how her face starts to change and how tall she has grown this last year. Isolde is becoming a young lady, a wonderful young lady with a very strong but sweet character. Isolde is a good friend as well. She is best friends with Duane, but she has been put in a different group now. Nobody ever puts them together, so that’s what we did this summer. The nurses first wouldn’t let us, but we explained that they are best friends and then it was okay. They hugged for minutes, until Duane was getting weaker and he lay down on the floor again. Isolde tried to get him to hug some more or to play a game through the bars from the playpen, but he didn’t react anymore. Isolde was so disappointed, she tried for minutes to get him back on his feet and she didn’t want to sit down in her wheelchair again. She kept holding on to the bars of the playpen to keep herself on her feet. I had to tell her very strongly that she had to sit down and that she had to go back to her own group. She cried a little bit when I had to leave her again. Seeing her cry made me cry. She just wants to be loved and to give love. She has so much love to give. I wish someone would see what an amazing young woman she is. She is verbal, potty trained and very sweet. She is able to walk short paces, but to be honest, they wouldn’t let us this summer, so I hope she can still do it, because nobody has trained with her. They don’t have PT in her facility anymore, which she received a couple years ago. She needs to get PT. I stretched her legs a couple times those days and I could already see improvement in flexibility. It is amazing what a bit of stretching can do for her, imagine what PT can do for her. She can blossom in a family and I don’t have a doubt about the fact that she will be able to walk if she is given the chance.”

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.   Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.

2015

Girl, born 2002

FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome), probable secondary CP

Julia has such happy, giant brown eyes and a smile that lights up a room!

From a volunteer who visited with her in July 2014:  “I know Julia as a big Drama Queen. She loves attention and she’ll do anything to draw your attention. But not this year. I don’t know if she was on heavier seditives or that she lost her strength to fight for attention. The only thing she’d do was take my hand as I walked by. Normally she’d wheel after me and try to climb on me, but it seeme like there was no strength left. I missed my Julia as I know her, my little monkey. I want her to find back her energy to get out of life what’s in there. She’s an amazing girl and she deserves a loving family. She Always has a big smile on her face and she’s really caring. She takes care of dolls as if they are real babies. She feeds them, changes their diapers. She loves to play with my hair and she actually tries to put the band in it. She is amazing! She would be such a good daughter! ”

From a family who met her in December 2013:  “I have to shout for this precious girl for a moment…we are here now and we see her everyday at the orphanage. 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!! ”

From someone who met her:   Julia is a girl that I know as the girl with the big smile.  Somehow she just seem to smile almost always. She’s a little monkey. Whenever somebody enters her group she would crawl up to that person and just start to climb on him/her. She doesn’t even need you to give her a hand, she’ll just climb up without any help and then she hangs on your neck, looking around, proud, as if she wants to say ‘Did you see that? Do you see where I am?’

Guardian AngelHer favorite toy is a doll. She plays with it as if it is a baby. Keeping the doll up straight, putting her down carefully. She feeds and clothes the doll. One of the nurses showed her how she should put a cotton diaper on the doll, she totally loved it. She even sings lullabies for the doll and she’ll ask visitors to do the same. She also loves to play with long hair. She really tries to make ponytails or braids.

Julia is able to walk, but her legs are really crooked, and she needs help to keep standing or to walk.  Julia is described as curious and enthusiastic.

Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.

Mild dysgnosia

Her paperwork is old, from 2009 and it states:
For her better growth, we sent her into foster family. During this period, she become more outgoing, and will not afraid of people, and can call people. In kindergarten, nannies teach her dance, she study seriously, nannies and children all liked her very much.  She is a beautiful girl.
From a volunteer who met her:
Joy is getting better and better since coming [here]. With enough teaching and training we hope Joy will be able to live independently eventually. Joy was hit when she was little. We only spent several hours with her, but she wasn’t aggressive when we were there. She actually was quite caring. She can cook and do everything for herself. 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.

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.

LexiGirl, born October 2005
PRC
Hyperextension of right knee/incontinent (possible lower spine issue)

Lexi is a beautiful little girl with such a sweet spirit! She is 8 years old, and has hyperextension of her right knee and is incontinent (possible issue with lower spine). She is able to “walk” with some assistance. Lexi used to sit and watch the other kids run and play, and she was so sad she couldn’t join in the fun. She worked and worked to find a way to get around! Lexi has had some delays but has excellent fine motor skills. She can take care of herself very well and is a smart girl. She has a best friend at the orphanage. Lexi sings while her friend dances. I imagine Lexi would love to be able to dance, too. She will need possible surgery and therapy on her right leg, and help with the continence issues. Lexi is a very loving and patient little girl. She is ready and waiting for a family of her own.

A family met her in country in 2015; they are willing to discuss her privately with families who are seriously considering adopting her.

Chelsea Qi (3)

Chelsea Qi (1)Girl, born 2006

She is listed as Blind with a left foot deformity; she was assessed and they confirmed that she has no visual impairments but rather what they think is a visual processing disorder.
Chelsea Qi is a sweet girl with a kind spirit. It is rare to see her without a huge smile on her face. When first meeting her she may come across as shy or reserved but she warms up very quickly!

Chelsea loves to color and craft time was her favorite activity at camp. She could sit for hours coloring, making beaded necklaces or filling in her memory book. Chelsea has a beautiful voice and really enjoys singing! She knows a lot of Chinese songs and even a few songs in English! She really enjoyed our assembly time where we would sing some crazy camp songs and dance. She even sang a song all by herself during the end of week Talent Show. Swimming time was another highlight of the week for her, she loved getting to splash around in the pool and play with the blow up balls. All morning she would ask if it was time to go swimming yet!

Chelsea does have some special needs but her biggest need of all is a family that will love and help her to succeed in life. We have seen what small interventions can do for her development and with proper support and therapies we have no doubt she can continue to thrive! She used to live in a great foster home but had to return to her home orphanage in February 2015. We know she greatly misses her friends and nannies as the situation in her current orphanage isn’t ideal.

A specific agency is offering a $4,000 grant if a family uses their agency to adopt her.

BetsyThis lovely girl has Spina bifida, mental delay, nocturnal and diurnal enuresis.  She iss 11 years old.

The girl is described as friendly and well-intentioned, emotionally stable, accepted well by her peers, demonstrates willingness to communicate with adults, prefers to play with peers, loves doing puzzles, has built self-service skills as well as hygiene habits, has a positive attitude towards adoption.

We have videos where you will see her answer questions and tell her age, that she is in the 4th grade at the local school, try to tell all the classes she had at school that day, share all her favorite foods (meatballs, soups, salads with tomatoes, sauces, cheese sandwiches, apples) and count up to 30 by herself.

It is worth mentioning that although the girl’s individual characteristics mentions some disturbances in her expressive speech and she does pronounce in a slightly muffled manner some sounds, we understands everything she says in the videos. The slight defects in the pronunciation of some sounds will probably be easily fixed with some speech therapy.

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

Girl, Born June 2001
From her medical records: congenital microcephaly, autism

Justine is a pretty girl with dark hair and eyes. She is fully mobile and active. Her face bears features of FAS, but this is not documented and is only a cautionary disclosure.

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.

Guardian AngelGirl, Born  2000

 

ALIVE and WAITING!

A question was raised about whether Kiersten had passed away, but this photo was taken March 14, 2012 😉 She still needs a family!

Isn’t Kiersten beautiful? She is 15 years old but is still very much a toddler. She is not able to walk on her own. There is nothing in her medical records to indicate why she is so delayed, and she does not show obvious facial features of FAS…her needs are quite unknown.

From her medical records: significant mental delay, congenital hypothyroidism

She is delayed but she tries very hard to keep up with everything. She is super, super smiley- like she could not stop smiling and giggling.

Look how good she looks! When I saw her she was sitting on the floor with another child, and she reached out and tugged on my pant leg almost like “look at me!”  I said her name, and she gave me a big grin.

Guardian Angelchrystyna2015-croppedGirl, Born 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!

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!

Soleil June 2013Girl, born 2001
Mild to moderate mental delays

Soleil comes very highly recommended from the orphanage director. She has shown great progress since she entered the orphanage.

She is running out of time — a family must be found for her before she turns 16!

Update June 2013:
Soliel really stands out.  She is a helper. She was helping the younger children stand up and dance and they were watching her to mimic what to do. She seems to be one of children that helps the orphanage staff as she is able to follow directions. She can read and speaks very clearly when asked questions. It is unclear why she is in this specific orphanage and they pointed her out specifically as needing a family! She is a very sweet girl who said she has dreamed about having a family but isn’t sure if she will ever have one- it just about broke my heart. There is also video available with her in it!

Bianca 1Girl, born August 2003
PRC
Slight/mild CP

11 year old Bianca is diagnosed with slight cerebral palsy. One of her best friends was adopted in March and she thought she had a family coming for her too, but she does not…yet! From a volunteer at her orphanage who has known her for years in regards to her file mentioning retardation of some sort: “She is bright and wonderful. She is personable and her CP is very slight. She would be a wonderful little girl and needs a mommy and daddy to help her to reach her full potential. I”m not sure why they put such words in files unless it means “delayed” or something to that capacity. She does go to the school outside the orphanage. She is currently living in a “family like” setting within the orphanage with three other girls and foster parents. She’s doing great!” From an Oct. 2013 update: Her speech is clear now. Bianca can speak complete sentences and read a textbook. She can do math too. She is independent in her daily life, doing things such as making her bed, sweeping the floor, and taking a shower. Bianca gets along well with her classmates and will greet people she knows. She rarely gets sick except for an occasional cold. At school she receives rehab training for her CP.

Aurora (1)

Aurora (2)Girl, born May 2003
PRC
Brain Damage

At the orphanage Aurora likes to lead the younger girls. She will hold their hands and take them to play on the slide. When the children want to play on the trampoline, they will always call their “big sister,” and she will happily lift them up to play.

She has a strong ability to be self-sufficient. She likes to wash her own socks. When she speaks, the sound is not very clear, but each time after she finishes washing her things, she will run to the nanny and say, “Nanny, I am done washing, are they clean?” The nanny will pat her cheek and tell her how great she is, and she will happily hang the things out to dry.

The orphanage sent Aurora to a special education school to attend class. When she first went to the school, she was not very used to it and she didn’t talk much with the other children. With the teacher’s help, she started to slowly try to talk to her classmates. Because her pronunciation was unclear, she would use gestures when she spoke to help explain. It wasn’t long before she started to like going to school. She learned with her classmates and always participated actively in their games. She worked very hard and always earned the teachers’ praise. After class, she would take the initiative to set out the tables and chairs, and she would neatly put her school supplies in her schoolbag. She is a little girl who loves cleanliness. Each morning she makes her own bed and cleans up her area.

Now Aurora has grown even prettier and she is especially polite. When she sees a nanny, she will say “Hello, Nanny!” on her own initiative. She particularly likes to wear pretty skirts and twirl around, and she will always praise herself, saying, “Nanny, I am so pretty!” She is a hard-working girl, and although the clarity of her speech isn’t very good, she is very diligent. Each morning when she wakes up, she will read her lessons aloud, and if there is a part she doesn’t understand, she will ask the teacher. At school if she earns rewards of red flowers, beaded necklaces, or pencils, she will share with the other children on her own initiative.

brittany2013-1brittany-2013Girl, Born April 2005

SO THANKFUL FOR A NEW PIC OF BRITTANY!   She looks wonderful!!!

Brittany is a beautiful girl with striking blue eyes.  Brittany has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.    She is able to walk and speak some, but she is quite delayed.  She will so benefit from having a loving family of her own.

From someone who met her:  She is very active and loves helping others.  She can dress herself, feed herself, and do other tasks with minimal help.  She loves reading stories to herself and hearing other people tell stories.  The staff wants to make her feel like she’s just like the other children, even though she’s more disabled than the rest of them.   She says she has many friends, and loves to dance and sing. She’s also very shy.   She keeps asking around for a mama.

Married couples only.  Older parents and large families welcome.  Travel required.

Irina2012

irina2015-3Girl, Born March 5, 2005

Irina is a beautiful girl with dark hair and big dark eyes. She has a cleft palate. She is cognitively delayed, likely as a result of FAS. She is a precious and happy little girl, and will do great in a family. She can be *assertive* at times, but responds very well to individual attention and will really thrive as the “baby”.

Irina is a child who keeps to herself. Usually, if she plays with others, she prefers to stay in small groups, but she also can be okay with larger groups of children.   She prefers playing with children younger than she is.   Irina is a good listener and is a sweet and sensitive child.

From a volunteer who visited with her in July 2014:  ” Irina has been transferred from a preschool to a facility for children. She is really small for her age, the size of a toddler, and she is being bullied by other children in her group. They hit her and yell at her. They nurses don’t protect her. She seems really overwhelmed and tries to flee from it, but when they are all in the playpen there is nowhere to go for her. She needs to be rescued. She needs to get out of there. She was in a better place, but this must be an awful experience for her. She looks much worse than in the pictures. Unfortunately the nurse wouldn’t let us take pictures.”

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.

Irina has been transferred to the older child internat now.   Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.
