Listed: August 2017

Lois is an adorable little girl who will soon be turning two years old! From her pictures, you can see that Lois was in complete failure to thrive mode — just look at her now…the changes in her looks alone are simply amazing! Lois is said to really enjoy sitting in the walker or in the red skate cart. She has a ready smile that she can’t wait to show her forever family. Lois gets along well with others and is said to be active. She has a good appetite and is a sound sleeper. Lois has been in the healing home since August of 2016.  It is reported that Lois has grown beautifully. Her developmental delays seem to be very significant. She is not interactive with others, including her nannies. She is making sounds, but not words. There are still many unknowns about the extent of her delays. Agency staff met Lois in November of 2016. It is clear she has grown and changed significantly in the past year. We can’t wait to see the amazing changes she’d make in a forever family with the love and supports she needs to continue thriving!

Wendel

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome, CHD

Listed: August 2017

Wendel is cute as a button! His happy, bright personality shines through in all of his photos and videos. Wendell does not have formal language skills yet, but he enjoys communicating with others through smiles, hugs, and some simple words, such as goodbye and coming. He recognizes his name when it is called and recognizes familiar people. He has a good understanding of social interactions and can show his emotions. Wendel can follow simple commands and has strong imitating ability.

The orphanage describes him as handsome, active, and extroverted. Wendel enjoys listening to music, playing games, and playing with toys, especially rag dolls. He gets along well with others and enjoys spending time with his peers. Wendell has quick reactions and is inquisitive; if an object is hidden he will search for it rather than be upset that it is gone. Wendel can crawl quickly and is beginning to walk. He can stand and walk with someone’s help or by holding onto a railing. He has good coordination and his motor skills are developing. The orphanage says that Wendel has strong adaptability. He does not yet have bowel or bladder control.

Wendel was abandoned at one month old. He was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and two congenital heart defects, an atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale. The orphanage reports that both heart conditions have healed themselves and have sent tests and images from February, 2017 to show this. Wendel is also listed as having the cytomegalovirus (CMV) and a milk protein allergy. The orphanage says that he was never affected by CMV and that this is a mistake. We are unclear whether the listed milk protein allergy means that he is lactose intolerant or that he has PKU as he has certain PKU physical qualities and is getting low-protein milk powder and low-protein rice powder, but the orphanage denies that he has PKU. The agency has requested a PKU test to be sure.

In order to help Wendel find a family, his current agency is waiving their entire agency fee.

Adorable Wendel needs a family to bring him home. Can that family be yours?

Eddie

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: August 2017

Wide-eyed Eddie is curious and explores by rolling over in his crib and play mat. Eddie was born with Downs Syndrome and a heart defect. He was abandoned as a frail, thin baby who struggled with digestive issues. Under the loving care of his nannies, his eating has improved and he is clearly more comfortable and putting on a little chub. He sweetly comforts himself by sucking his thumb. At the age of a year and a half, Eddie’s developmental delays are fairly significant so it’s hard to predict how much he will catch up with the attention and services he needs.

There’s no doubt this little cutie will benefit greatly from joining a family!

Victor

Boy, born 2007

Cognitive Delays, Speech Delay, Albinism

Listed: August 2017

Victor was briefly in a program at a home for children who are blind.  He came to the home “pretty broken” and has been sent back to his orphanage. He hadn’t been at the home too long, but progressed, blossomed, and was loved there.

A special family is needed to adopt him quickly so he will not lose that feeling of love and all of his progress. Praying for his family to see him today. He likes to dance, and he likes to find leaves and sticks.

February 2017 update (from the home):
“Victor is still waiting for a family. He has grown very close to his teacher. In the morning the caregivers drop the kids off at school and they walk on their own and wait for their teachers in the classroom. Victor insists every day on waiting for his teacher at the door. He smiles and holds her hand when she comes and they walk upstairs together. He follows her everywhere and she is able to cheer him up if he is having a hard time. It’s been amazing to see their relationship grow but he needs a permanent family to continue encouraging him to grow”

Auden finally has a file, which means he finally has a chance to have a family of his own! In September of 2015, the agency posted about a little baby boy with down syndrome who we met while on an advocacy trip. His situation was very grave due to a digestion issue and staff who weren’t sure what more to do for him. They honestly weren’t sure how much time he had left. They got in touch with some wonderful people who got him into one of their healing homes. Three months later, they posted a picture of this baby they are calling Auden. The changes moved are amazing!

Auden is now two years old and not only is he adorable, but he is thriving! This cutie has an amazing story, but this is just the beginning. There just has to be an awesome family out there for this little one. Please help spread the word about him so he can soon be in the arms of his family…his forever family!

From a family who met him in June 2014:

This calm little guy came up to me with pleading eyes for attention and is just so polite. God has heard his prayers, and now he is listed for adoption! He is not overbearing or competitive at all. Rather, he is observant and inquisitive. He is about the size of a six year-old and just so gentle. I would take him home in a heartbeat if he was available before. He takes turns riding the red wagon around the orphanage grounds as the bigger boys pull him, and he gestures politely for fresh fruit when he sees it is available. He is kind to other children. He says a few words in his native language, and listened carefully when I was giving descriptions of my family photos. I have confidence that he would do wonderfully in any kind of family, and it is obvious– he can surely reciprocate love! He enjoyed throwing balls, going on walks, playing see-saw, and listening to English descriptions. Whoever adopts this little love will be so blessed to call him a beloved son.

She has siblings, but none are available for adoption; 2 older sisters live with birth mother and 1 younger sister has been adopted.

From a family who met her in summer 2013:
She was in my kids’ groupa.  She is the sweetest little thing and needs out of there ASAP!!!  She has the most noble quiet nature about her.  She is mentally delayed but has so much potential.  She was one of the least favored children in the orphanage and she is desperate for love.  On one occasion she wandered over to the play shelter where we were playing and was trying to eat our daughter’s cookie.  We didn’t have any extra (we brought treats for the groupa every three days or so) so my husband just picked her up to distract her and as soon as he did, she threw her arms around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder just soaking in the attention.  I can’t bear the thought of her being transferred!  She already has it bad enough.

Nan

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: July 2017

Nan is a sweet peanut! As of her spring 2017 update, Nan was able to sit, crawl, and stand a little, while holding onto the railing. Nan can say simple words like ‘mama’ and ‘nannan.’ She plays well with other children and will smile at someone she knows. When people talk to her, she is very happy. She sometimes takes toys from the other children. If they start to cry, she will join in and cry along with them. Nan loves to look at colorful picture books and knows how to turn the pages, one by one. Her caretakers are working with her on identifying body parts. Nan cries loudly when upset, but the staff can comfort her by talking to her gently. She is scared of strangers and new places and will look for familiar caretakers when in that situation. She likes when her caretakers kiss her cheeks or give her snacks. Nan can hold her own bottle but does eat other foods, such as cut-up meat, soup, sliced fruits, small pieces of bread, etc. She is not a picky eater and she really likes bread and steamed buns. Nan is living in the orphanage. She sleeps well, but does move around a lot at night. The staff will sometimes need to re-cover her or will just give her two blankets. Nan has a cheerful personality and loves being outdoors and playing with toys that make sounds. We’re hoping Nan’s family sees her soon so she is able to come home while she is still so young.

There is a $5000 agency grant available, through Nan’s current agency.  They also have video and additional pictures.

Benjamin

Boy, born 2010
PRC
Progeria (not officially diagnosed)

Listed: July 2017

Benjamin is the sweetest little boy who recently turned seven years old! Sadly, many people in Benjamin’s life have already given up hope on him…but not us. We know there must be a very special plan for this little boy who came into care at the approximate age of two and got to participate in camp this past November, spending a few days with the team members despite the fact that he didn’t have an adoption file. The agency asked that his file be made ready and it was completed and arrived just this week! Benjamin is attending kindergarten in the classroom inside his orphanage. He can do addition and subtraction within 10 and knows his shapes, colors, and classmates’ names. Benjamin communicates well and is good about sharing his toys and food with other children. He loves to draw, color, and sing songs. Benjamin cares a lot about his teachers and the other children. He likes to play with toys and play outside. Benjamin is able to put on and take off simple clothes, use chopsticks to eat, and take care of himself. He has good comprehension skills and is always willing to help his teachers in the classroom. He is very obedient and focused. It is time to find a family for this special little boy who is full of hope!

Benjamin’s camp volunteer said: This little guy is the sweetest. He plays great with other kids, is a very meticulous artist, and is very smart! He is right on target intellectually. He gets around just fine. Benjamin starts off shy, but warms up as soon as he sees he can trust you (which didn’t take long). He played very well with the other kids. but didn’t really like to be touched though, especially at first. He would take my hand. I do believe that he would be more open to touch given more time. Benjamin is very smart, is an avid artist with crayons (leaves no white!) and enjoys cartoons. When he didn’t want to do something, he didn’t do it. Period. He sure is a sweet boy!

Another volunteer said: Benjamin has a sense of humor. I was cleaning up the balls and he was tossing them out as fast as I tossed them in. We were both laughing. He’s a good eater, too- loved noodles.

A third volunteer said: On the last day, I crawled in the ball pit with him. He was actually welcoming my hugs and my kissing all over him!

Every once in awhile you come across a file with the sweetest, heartfelt expressions written about a child. That’s what I found in the file of precious Lilly, who recently turned one. Lilly’s file said things like “She would smile sweetly, just like a little angel without wings,” “She is very cute and favorable,” and “When someone had fun with her, she will smile innocently. It showed that she is a girl with good personality.” It is clear this baby is not only sweet, but adored!

Lilly is a good eater and sleeper and she really likes taking baths. She loves to play in the water and kicking the water with her feet makes her squeal with excitement. Lilly was turning from side to side when her file was prepared and she is receiving physical therapy. The staff believes she is going to continue to surprise them. It is our hope that Lilly can come home to her family before her 2nd birthday!

Kraig #29-10

guardianangelKraig_Sept 2015 Kraig2_Sept 2015Boy, 7 years old
blind
Prematurely born with low birth weight; Infantile cerebral palsy – spastic quadric paresis; ROP (Retinopathy of the prematurely born) with detachment of the retina in both eyes – second type, final stage; Amaurosis; Delays in the physical and neuro-psychical development.

Listed: September 2014

UPDATE from a family who met him in 2016: I spent a week with Kraig at the children’s home. He is very well cared for and loved by the Nannies, but they are so limited in respect for knowing how to care for a blind child and being able to provide what he needs. He cannot play with most of the toys because he cannot see them. He is walking VERY well. He has a very hard time when the room gets loud and he does self soothe by putting his hands on his ears and rocking. I believe with a good school/program he would learn how to live daily life as a blind person and be fully functional. He really wants to be loved. He would even let me put my hand on his head or rub his back. He would be a real Mama’s Boy! I would love to help find him a family and I will commit to helping that family fundraise as much as I possibly can.

Kraig needs a family! His most recent update shows he is doing worse than previously; he has started some auto-aggressive behaviors and autistic traits – which is not a surprise since he’s blind and doesn’t have a lot of stimulation and attention in his environment.

Kraig doesn’t talk but understands the speech of the adults, reacts to his name but not always, and pronounces accidental combinations of sounds. He doesn’t use non-verbal means or gestures to communicate. He likes to cuddle in familiar adults.

He laughs loud when teased and expresses positive emotions to interactions with familiar adults. When he is anxious, he exhibits auto-aggression. He cries form strangers. Sometimes he lives in his own world, does stereotypical movements (rocks), and refuses to carry out instructions. He becomes very restless in a noisy environment, when the tone of the voice is raised or at loud sounds (hi puts his hands on his ears). He has difficulties accepting new things.

Kraig tolerates close contact with familiar adults but doesn’t interact with his peers due to his vision. He walks with support and around unmoving support. He makes independently several steps but is afraid. He moves comparatively calmly in a familiar environment. He is terrified by the walks in the yard. He has good appetite and eats well but doesn’t gain weight well.

Kraig plays with musical toys. He likes to listen to music and songs. He claps his hands and is happy then. He prefers familiar toys and children’s songs. He has difficulties accepting new games and needs time to get used to them. He holds objects in his hands. He can play for a long time with appropriate musical toys – hits a drum and tambourine and waves with rattles.

Updated photos from Sept 2015 — the agency has videos available, too.

Girl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect

Listed: June 2017

Stephanie is a beautiful little three-year-old girl who has a close relationship with her foster mom and her early education teacher. She gets along well with her former nanny and children in the orphanage. She is willing to share food and toys with others and she always helps when another child is being bullied, as any big sister would. Stephanie is a good eater and sleeper.

Stephanie was born with down syndrome and a congenital heart defect- PDA, which seems to have resolved itself. At 5 months of age, she was holding up her head, at 9 months she was crawling, at 11 months she was sitting, at 13 months she was standing with help, at 14 months she was walking with support, and at 19 months she was walking independently. Stephanie can sometimes say mom, but doesn’t really say words beyond that. She definitely knows her name and responds when called. She can also understand basic directions.

Her current agency has a $5000 grant available.

$247.50 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!

Chloe

Girl, age 6
Blind

Listed: June 2017

When Chloe came into care as a toddler, she was non-verbal and had little exposure to stimulation and affection. After being in her foster home, six-year-old Chloe is now speaking full sentences primarily in English, has good comprehension skills, eats on her own, dances, sings and laughs. She is known as a funny, social and bright little girl who is quickly learning braille, counting objects, knows the phonetic sound of most letters and can identify everyone in the home by their voice or smell. She was recently accepted into a private school that will continue to help her thrive and focus on learning more braille, help with independent skills related to blindness, and meeting more friends. She loves to make everyone laugh, enjoys being silly and is well liked by her peers. Despite being blind, Chloe walks around the home independently, walks up and down stairs, rides on a tricycle, and jumps on a trampoline. It is noted that she has such great potential as she absorbs everything around her.

Eligible families may qualify for a grant through her current agency in addition to a $5,000 Child Specific Grant (exp 7/31/17).

Lily

Girl, age 12
Cerebral palsy, HIV

Listed: June 2017

Known as Lily by her committed orphanage volunteers, she recently had a big celebration for her 12th birthday. Lily is described as a caretaker with a bright, warm and joy filled personality. She loves to wear new dresses and new shoes, play with baby dolls, read books, color, laugh, give hugs and dance. She works with a gait trainer to walk for her cerebral palsy, but it’s noted that she has a preference to run. With the trainer, she is able to kick a soccer ball and use a scooter standing up. She is able to speak, uses a communication program so she is able to share her thoughts and needs with others and has started to spell and read short phonetic words. Her volunteer notes that Lily has an understanding of what it means to have a forever family and has a strong desire to have this herself.

Why hasn’t anyone chosen her? Don’t they know how amazing she is? Can’t they see how much joy she would bring to their family? Can’t they see that she is so much more than her cerebral palsy? That she is smart, she loves to laugh, she is gentle, and loves going to church. Her cerebral palsy doesn’t define her. – Lily’s foster mother

Lily is diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and HIV. She’s reported to be an eager learner and receives physical, speech and occupational therapies.

Eligible families may qualify for a grant through her current agency in addition to a $5,000 Child Specific Grant (exp 7/31/17).

Nolan

Boy, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: June 2017

Are you ready for some darling dancing baby boy cuteness this morning? Meet Nolan! Nolan is described as quiet and shy. His file says he cries very sad tears when he is left by familiar people. Doesn’t that make you want to scoop him up and keep him close forever? He is learning to walk and takes several steps independently, or at least he was when his file was prepared a couple of months ago. I bet he is walking and running by now. He is also learning to communicate his needs. He understands simple commands. I had to laugh when I read that he favorite activity is football. Not bad for a baby who wasn’t quite walking!

Nolan has a $4,000 grant through his current agency.
