Girl, born in 2007. She has a delay in neuro-psychical development and epileptic seizures.
She is very sweet and charming girl, with very big eyes and eyelashes. She is hyperactive child, who can not stay at one place long time. When you want to attract her attention and she is busy with doing something else, she does not pay any attention to you. When she feels uneasy and can not answer or does not want to answer some question, she starts asking her interlocutor questions. Her speech is not so clear and even some words are not understandable and is more like baby speech. She has speech problem and at the kindergarten she works with speech therapist. She knows her age.

He is a child who needs a lot of work in order to master more habits and knowledge because he has some potential.
These children used to live in their bio family but they were not well taken care of. They have delays but with more professional work and individual activities, these children can have better progress. They are adorable children who really need patience, love and care. They know the life in foster families but are separated because the opinion of the social workers is that none of their foster families could manage these two children if they are placed together – because they are not so obedient.
Because we only have their files for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

Boy, born 1999
Brothers – they need to be adopted together!
They are said to be “very good boys”!
Hunter, The oldest, was born in March 2004
Hyperkinetic disorders/Hyperkinetic conduct disorder; Nonorganic sleep disorder/Emotional sleep disorder; Benign intracranial hypertension; Other specified diseases of gallbladder; Flat foot
Hunter likes to eat a lot. He and his brother Forest have a lot of energy. He really likes to do arts and crafts and play games. Most of the time he has a very sweet disposition. He is very keen to interact with adults. That being said if an adult is too rough with him things will start to escalate. If an adult tries to swat at him or restrain him in someway he may attempt to bite. Hunter can speak pretty well but he can’t always communicate what’s going on with his emotions. Hunter responds best to strong male figures. An attentive dad is key to a positive adoption for him. He is in grade 4 here but he can’t read, write, do math, or anything like that right now. He is schooled by himself and school mostly consists of arts and crafts. He is not unintelligent but very delayed. He likes soccer. He would be great in an attentive family where he and his brothers will get much attention and where they will be by far the youngest children. I would adopt him myself if I could be as focused on him and his brothers as he needs a dad and mom to be and if we had the space for them along with our current 3. He enjoys picking fruit and cleaning in the orphanage. He is never been far from the orphanage and he is interested in coming to America. He has communicated that he really wants to come to America and really wants a papa.
Forest, the middle boy, was born in Aug 2006
Mild mental delays; speech disorder
Forest likes to eat a lot. He does school the same way his brother Hunter does. He is considered to be in the second grade. Very sweet but also very active. Like his older brother, he needs to need a lot of attention to keep him from unintended harm. He likes to be outside. He has minor institutional self harming tendencies like scratching himself to leave marks. He does not do that a lot though. Forest loves to give hugs and kisses and hold hands with the adults.
Ridge, the youngest brother was born in Aug 2008
Stenosis of pulmonary artery; currently he does not require surgery. Tuberculin skin test – positive?
Ridge likes to clean. He was mopping the floor with an adult sized mop as I wrote this. He is a very small but sweet boy. He’s a very peaceful and charming child. He is not in school yet but he seems to be the most intellectual of his brothers. He will likely do better in school then his brothers when he gets the chance. He is so cute it is hard to imagine him spending another day without a family. When the boys orphanage shuts down Ridge will be separated from his brothers for several months because he is not old enough to go with his older brothers. I expect this will be a very traumatic time for him, so if a family could come for him as soon as possible that would be best. No family should hesitate to adopt these children as long as they are available to give the time and attention that these children deserve. If that is done the children will flourish.
2 brothers: older brother, born February 2011, and younger brother, born on February 2013, children are adoptable together:
Older brother has grey-bluish eyes and light hair. He loves individual attention, gladly attends different sessions. The boy loves musical toys, in a group gladly drives with toy cars. The boy also enjoys looking picture books together with a caretaker. The boy has very good appetite, he eats a lot. The boy sleeps well during the night and the day but sometimes before falling asleep he rocks in his bed. The boy is rocking also during the day (often standing by the door). The boy speaks “in his own language” a lot. The boy has positive dynamics, he is attached to his younger brother.
Final medical diagnosis – antenatal central nervous system damage. Alcohol fetopathie. Congenital developmental abnormalities. Cryptorchidism. Spine dextra scoliosis. Hard palate cleft. Deformation of thorax. Horseshoe kidney. Physical development delay. Language development delay. Atopic dermatitis, allergy to yolk. Myopia I grade.
Younger brother has blue eyes and, hazel hair. The child is calm, walks independently, obeys instructions, likes individual attention, likes to play with toys, sometimes might take toys form other children.
Final medical diagnosis – state after hypospadia plastic surgery.
Two sisters; the older sister has post-surgical encephalopathy.
Sara, age: 12 years
The girl had post-surgical encephalopathy of moderate degree. Condition after surgery of a benign formation of the cerebrum. The girl is clinically healthy at present. Her physical development is within the norm, as well as her intelligence.
The child communicates freely with both children and adults. She enjoys listening to music and dancing. She has a very close emotional bond with her younger sister.
Susan, age: 11 years
Healthy. Her intelligence is within the norm. The child is sociable and radiant. She has well-developed self-service skills and hygiene habits. Her physical and mental development is correspondent to her age.
In the videos you will see the girls say “hello”, tell that they are in 7th and 5th grade respectively. Sara’s favorite school subjects are reading and mathematics and Susan’s is man and nature. They share they have friends. Write. When asked confirm they are studying English at school but they get embarrassed and the only words in English they can think of are “Hello” and “Goodbye”
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.
Twin boys, born August 2010
Updated pictures and medical info April 2015
Cerebral palsy. taking anticonvulsant therapy
cerebral palsy, focal symptomatic epilepsy, Paraplegia (paraparesis) and quadriplegia (quadriparesis), taking anticonvulsant therapy
Please help us find them a family, where they can grow up together and reach their full potential!
From someone who met them in 2013:
(Brother 1) He is in with a much younger groupa. He goes outside twice daily when it is nice, and this orphanage does physical therapy five times a week. He makes eye contact, but is in his own little world until you talk directly to him. He appears kind of zoned out, and then I said his name and stroked his cheek and his whole body came to life, just longing to be touched and tickled. He arched his back and smiled, but I wasn’t allowed to pick him up. He has grown too long for his stroller. I put a velcro wrist rattle on him and he purposefully moved his left arm to interact with it immediately. He is well nourished there, but he will really need a mama’s touch to help him grow. His teeth look like they are in great shape. He uses his arms, but I did not see him move his legs, though he was certainly wiggling from one side to the other and is a kid who would really like to be on the move! He is not in the same groupa as his brother. Kids are generally grouped by what they are eating, and his brother was in the groupa for kids doing formula and purees. I think he may be on only formula still. It was so hard to leave him behind!
(Brother 2) Several days later, I saw who I thought was the same child in a different stroller, but the nannies corrected me when I called him by his brothers name, slowly communicating that this was his twin brother. They look SO much alike! The first day I saw him, he was badly in need of a diaper change and I showed the nannies. He was laying flat on his back in the outdoor playpen, and when I came back to return my daughter to the groupa, he was still there an hour later, unchanged in diaper and position. The next day I saw him, though, one of the sweet nannies was playing music on her ipod, and he was laying close to her in a stroller. Although he didn’t interact with the music, he was very quick to respond to my voice. The second I stopped talking, he stopped smiling and zoned out again. But, he was so responsive to touch and baby talk! He pushed his body around in the stroller with his legs AND arms, and had a lot of good neck strength. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is only being limited by the assumptions of his diagnosis. As we left our daughter’s groupa for the last time, we saw him being lovingly carried down to his physical therapy appointment. I think it was a sign of good things to come for these boys!
Neither boy is using meaningful speech, though both babble. Videos available. Wonderful region to adopt from, especially if one parent needs to stay alone for a time.
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.
2 siblings, adoptable separately or together: older brother, 2012, and younger brother, 2013
Older brother has blue eyes and light brown hair. He crawls, he also walks around if being held by both hands. He stands up by sticking to something. The boy makes a longer eye contact with an adult, he plays with toys, responds to his name. His appetite is good, he does not try to eat with a spoon, needs to be fed. Sleeps well, sometimes swings before falling asleep. Sometimes has a tendency to swing and beat his head against the floor. He has been diagnosed with effects of neonatal central nervous system hypoxia in a state of diffuse muscle hypotonic syndrome, psychomotor retardation. OU astigmatism, hypermetropia, OU nystagmus, esotropia. Language development delay.
Younger brother has blue eyes and light brown hair. The child crawls, he does not eat independently, needs to be fed. The boy is emotionally labile, often cries, plays alones, likes musical toys. He has been diagnosed with OU Nystagmus horizontal. OU Astigmatism mixtus. OD Esotropia. Psychomotor development delay. Speech development delay. Muscle tone imbalance.
Brody (on the left) born April 2006
Auggie (on the right) born March 2005
Rough mental delay, partial atrophy of eye nerves, cerebral palsy, Epilepsy
From someone who met Brody in 2011 and Auggie in 2012:
Brody and Auggie are sweet little boys who appear to have some sort of genetic disorder that causes developmental delays and self-harming behaviors. They are not aggressive towards others, only towards themselves, and these behaviors can be halted temporarily by picking either boy up and spinning him around. Brody is able to walk, and can drink from a cup without help. He is not quite able to feed himself, but is willing to try. Auggie was in a laying room for over a year, but after only 3 months of physical therapy is now sitting independently and working on learning to stand. Both boys have wonderful, heart stealing smiles. Brody appears to be in his own world much of the time, and loves things that crinkle or light up, and things shaped like sticks, as well as hands, gloves, feet and socks. He shows numerous signs of autism, which may or may not be environmental. Auggie loves things that crinkle or light up, slinkies, music, and tv. He is more interactive than Brody, and appears to lift his arms up to indicate he would like to be held. This is the only form of communication I observed from either of the boys. The boys are currently living in separate orphanages. I pray a family will reunite these brothers together in one family, where they can receive all the love and attention they need to meet their full potential!
We hope a family will consider adopting them TOGETHER.
More pictures available.
William (DOB 11/2006)
Special Needs: developmental delays, autism symptoms, mild thoracic scoliosis, strabismus
Tommy (DOB 08/2008)
Special Needs: Developmental delays, congenital thalassemia
William is considered to be a sweet and considerate boy, he helps other children clear up their toys and is “the teacher’s wonderful little helper”. William’s foster mother has been working with him on his emotional control and stability, he is becoming more stable through her guidance and comfort. His schooling is helping him to progress in his learning though he continues to receive speech training through a Speech Language Pathologist.
Tommy has adapted very well to his foster family as well. He has developed a close relationship with his foster mother and seeks her attention. His emotions have also stabilized and he gets along well with his foster sister as well. He is very independent and can follow directions and warnings well. He also loves to go to school though he is about one year behind children of his age – it has been recommended that he needs more social stimulations and his therapy seems to be helping him catch up.
William and Tommy are looking for a forever home where they can be cared for and loved together!

From a family who met Cody spring 2014: we were able to spend a good amount of time with him. He was delightful! He loved holding our hands when we went for walks outside, and he loved playing ball with my husband. He seemed healthy, smart, well-behaved, and kind to the other kids. We often saw him acting kind of like a big brother, helping some of the others with things like zipping their jackets. I think he would do great in a family with other kids. We were sad to say goodbye to him, and he asked us when his mom and dad were coming.
Cody: Mild mental delay, Atrial septal defect, HIV disease resulting in encephalopathy, Hypertrophy of tonsils
They must be adopted together. She is in a different orphanage because of her age, but in the same region, pretty close to each other. It will be the same court for both children.
He changed 3 orphanages already and this summer he will be transferred again because of his school age; he is scheduled to be transferred before school starts in September. Where is he going is NOT good! He needs OUT!! He is a very good and friendly boy and needs a family asap!
Emmit, boy, born 2011 – cardiomyopathy
Casey, girl, born 2008, healthy
Lynn, girl, born 2006, healthy
Casey,the younger girl was born in 2008 and has no special needs, just some kind of development delay. She is smart and active, participates in all orphanage performances.
Her older sister, Lynn, was transferred from her orphanage due to her age and in August she will be transferred again. The orphanage social worker reports she is VERY smart and beautiful, no special needs, very active in all performances.
These 3 siblings are to be adopted together for sure.
But they have the oldest brother born in 2004. He is in the special school orphanage and has severe mental delays.
If a family decides to adopt all 4 children it will be great! If they want only three younger siblings they are to be approved for 4 children and to get referral to meet ALL 4 siblings. Then if they decide not to adopt the oldest one we will do the best to “separate” them. I think it is possible, but we cannot guarantee it for sure.
Boy, born 2012
Delay of psychological and motor development, crossed eyes
Girl, born 2009

She is a child Americans usually define as “a happy child”. She is very friendly with others. She is very active and likes to participate in orphanage performances, she recites poems. But in general she has some educational issues.
They must be adopted together.
