Asia General Information

The orphan crisis for children with Down syndrome and other special needs crosses every political and continental border, extending through the countries of Asia.  Although many reside in foster homes, they are still discarded and need a forever family of their own.

 

China, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, and the Philippines all do an outstanding job of documenting each child’s social history, as well as providing thorough medical history and updates for potential adoptive families.   The process to adopt in these countries is very straightforward and predictable.  We have outstanding agency partners serving these children.  Length of travel and other requirements have been markedly relaxed over the last year, and even allow for single moms and larger families to adopt.

 

Despite all of these positive features, our Asian children are often the last to be chosen.  Please help us raise awareness and find adoptive families for them!

Patrick

patrick-updatepatrick-2016Boy, born July 2004
PRC

Listed: October 7, 2012

Patrick has osteogenesis imperfecta, this means that his bones break easily. He is in a wheelchair which he is able to wheel around himself. He lives in a community group home and has just started attending local primary school.

From someone who met him in May 2016:   Patrick is 11 years old and is in the care of ICC in China. He lives in a group home in the local community for high functioning boys. He receives schooling from an ICC teacher and the necessary supports to become more independent. Patrick is loved by all who know him, he has a cheeky smile and is very sweet. He knows some basic English such as: good morning, good afternoon, good evening and some food items like apple, and others.

Patrick has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) or brittle bone disease. This means his bones break easily and that he must be careful. He therefore moves around in a wheelchair, which he can do quite well. There are other families who have adopted children with OI who would be happy to talk to potential adoptive families about their experiences adopting a child with OI. Email Erin to get in touch with those families.

While Patrick is living in a family style environment, this does not fully replace the love, support and opportunities that being adopted would give him. He is close to the boys he lives with and already knows what it’s like to be a brother (to some extent). We hope and pray that the right family will be able to adopt Patrick.

Patrick is extremely cute and endearing and everyone loves him. He is very good at complementing people and making them feel good.

Fern

Fernuodated filepicture2Fernupdated file pictureGirl, born Aug 2010
Cerebral palsy
PRC

She can laugh aloud. She waves her head when happy. She grasps little toys with left hand and put them into her mouth to bite them. She can sit alone for a short time. She looks around when someone speaks to her.

Fern has a good physical state, has balanced nutrition, has a routine life every day, good living habits but is choosy about food.

From an adoptive parent who saw her in April 2014:
Let me start by saying my heart broke for this little one. She is unable to sit up or feed herself. She cannot walk. She was brought to me in the crib. She smiled when I spoke to her and she grabbed my hand when I placed mine in hers. She laughed when we tickled her and she seemed to enjoy my attention. The nannies say she can smile and laugh when tickled. She can chew and swallow food. She has a familiar caretaker and smiles when she is with her. She is described as a very content child. She is easy going.

Note: Fern’s updated file pictures do show her sitting up, although she may be supported by leaning on the wall in one picture. She desperately needs a family who can get her out of the crib and into therapy so she can be all that she can be!

She is able to walk with help and has recently been able to pull herself up. She loves to go outside to the playground and practice her walking. Her smile is so cute and her laugh so hearty.

Sarea

Guardian AngelGirl, born May 2009
PRC
postoperative hydrocephalus, postoperative meningocele (spina bifida), optic nerve atrophy, Cerebral palsy

At the first sight, we were impressed by her black eyes. Her eyes were big and black, which seemed to talk. As she grew up, we found her hair was beautiful, black and soft. Till now we do not cut her hair. The caretaker likes dressing her and do various hair style for her. She received the surgery of meningocele and hydrocephalus. Now she is diagnosed as cerebral palsy and optic nerve atrophy. Her motion ability is poor and limbs are not powerful. She can turn over, can lie on the stomach, but can not sit. Additionally her mental development is delayed. She can not speak, just makes some unconscious sounds, she seems to dislike toys and not sensitive to the sounds.  Now she can eat the fixed food, mainly vegetable, meat, egg, noodles, oatmeal, porridge, rice, etc. She also likes fruits. She rarely has illness.

She is slight, and shorter than other children of her age. Though she has lots of disadvantages, she is still a lovely and happy baby. She likes smiling, especially when someone is talking with her and teasing her. When someone is hugging her, she is quiet and listening to adults’ talk, sometimes she touches the person’s face. She likes noisy, always turns her head to the sounds. When no one plays with her, she will be upset and call unhappily. Though she is a disabled child, she is lovely as other healthy child. She has the same feeling, desires to be loved and cared. We hope she would grow up healthily and happily and she would have a family with warm and love. We believe she can adapt new place and bring happiness to the family. Bless Sarea!  Wish she can find her parents soon and have a family. Wish she is peaceful all her life.

Carol

Carol update 8 2013carol-updateGirl, born Sept 2010
PRC
Down syndrome

Carol  loves sitting and rocking on her hobby horse!  She is enjoys listening to music and rocking on her horse.  She can sit on the bed steadily and can stand with hands holding onto the bed rails.  Sometimes when she sees other children take her favorite toy she will try and take it back.

Update from Sept 2016: In May 2014, Carol went into the care of a foster family and has been living with them ever since. She is currently in kindergarten and has made big progress! Carol is happy, active, talkative, and cute. She can say many daily words. Some words are clear and some are not, but they are all understandable. Sometimes she will sing songs or count from 1 to 10 for her foster grandparents on the way home. After she goes home from school, she will change her shoes and put her school shoes in the cabinet. She will then tell her foster grandma what she wants to eat. She enjoys greeting her neighbors by saying “hello.” If she sees something she does not understand, she will ask her foster grandma, “Grandma, what is this?” When she wants to go out to play, she will tell her foster grandparents “go to play.” If you call her name, she will reply “I am…” or “Ah, what do you want?” If you ask her what her name is, she will tell you her full Chinese name. If you ask her some simple questions, she will reply. Carol’s motor skills are good. She can hold a pen to draw and can write “1.” After drawing, she will put away the pencils in the drawer.

Carol eats with a spoon and is very clean when eating. After eating, she will try to wash her dish. Carol is potty trained, but needs an adult to help her wipe. She loves music and specially loves singing and dancing when she hears music she likes. She has good social skills and is very attached to her foster grandparents. She gets along well with her foster sisters as well. Each night, she will ask her older foster sister to sleep with her. In the past, she would grab her foster sister’s pillow and play or tease her, but she doesn’t do that anymore. Carol’s foster grandma is more serious and her foster grandpa spoils her, so she prefers the foster grandpa and knows to ask him when she has requests. When guests come over, she will show her drawings to the guests. She does not like to eat vegetables, but does like to eat chicken legs and wings and is very clean when eating them. She also enjoys watermelon and bananas, but does not like sour fruit. Carol enjoys playing with her dolls, watching cartoons, and going outside with her foster grandparents. Carol has down syndrome, but is clearly quite high functioning. She couldn’t be doing better, but it’s definitely time she found a forever family of her own!

Her favorite subject is art. Aspen loves vegetables, but is allergic to seafood. She loves to jump rope and play with balls. Her favorite color is pink.  The orphanage staff described her as shy, kind, friendly to other children, helpful, and obedient. She likes to play with others and is very kind to everyone. Jinger speaks clearly and can communicate just fine, though she was very shy and scared when she first met us. By the time we left, she was more comfortable and full of smiles. She enjoys singing, dancing, playing outside, and helping the nannies. Jinger is a lovely and active girl. She likes listening to music and happy tone could make her happy.

She likes to play house and could imitate putting on clothes for the dolls, feeding and dressing the dolls. She is a girl who likes beauty. She is happy when praised as a beautiful girl.

Listed: Feb 22, 2013

Colby is a precious boy who has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (Congenital Heart Defect). From observation, the heart condition has no obvious affect on daily life.

Colby is active, extroverted, and smiles often. When Colby hears music on the radio, he dances with joy. He does well in dance class and has a good sense of rhythm. Colby also enjoys playing games with other children and likes to watch cartoons.

Update 2016:
Colby is very good at imitating; in his music and dance class, he learned a whole entire dance routine after being shown the first time! He has come a long way since his early days at the orphanage. At first, he was withdrawn and did not actively engage with others. Nowadays, he’s quite active and extroverted—he actively participates in all classroom activities. Although he was diagnosed with Down syndrome and has cognitive delays, his language ability has greatly improved. Every day before school, he’ll wave and say goodbye to his foster mom. When he comes home from school, he’ll say “hello mother” and “hello father” in his native language. Colby knows all the names of his foster family members, and can name common objects and foods. He has some challenges with expressive language but he’s quite good at understanding others. He has great self-care skills such as putting on his clothes and shoes, using the restroom, brushing his teeth, washing his face, and feeding himself. Colby gets along well with other children and likes to play games with them. His report states that he has a congenital heart defect but that it does not have any obvious effects on his day-to-day life; he hasn’t received surgery for his heart as of May 2016. An agency staff member met him on a recent Journey of Hope trip to China and found that he’s quite talented and showed off his martial art and rollerblading skills! He can speak words and simple sentences, but also communicates through pointing, touch, and body language. He’s been living with his foster family for about 5 years and they shared that he’s a great helper around the house and loves outdoor activities.

Boy, born January 2010
PRC
Blind

Three year old Jesse is a beautiful little boy who resides a specialized foster care home for blind and visually impaired children. It is small home with only five children and the carers are specially trained to work with blind children. He is being taught life skills and self-care that will help him prepare for adoption and eventually independent living.jesse on tricycle

While this is a great opportunity, life has not been so fortunate for Jesse. He was abandoned at the gates of his orphanage when he was 9 months old. His blindness was caused by an untreated eye infection, and he was so ill he was sent to a palliative care home to die. He arrived a very sick and frightened little boy but was nursed back to health and given the opportunity to gain confidence and trust others around him. He is currently healthy with no further medical problems but is delayed in some areas of his development such as walking and feeding himself.

Jesse is now a happy child, interested and aware in all that is around him. In the absence of sight, he uses other senses to explore the world. He is quite timid in nature but likes to be around other children and his carers. He is sometimes uncertain when trying new things but enjoys praise and attention, so this motivates him to keep going. He would be a wonderful son with a great future but just needs his family to find him.

Some recent updates on Jesse, speech is making an appearance and Jesse is saying bye,bye and waving when his carers leave. He is eating a good variety of food now and sleeping much better than when he arrived at the foster home. Jesse communicates what he wants and doesn’t want by nodding and shaking his head. He can move himself around the room and onto furniture to get to a comfortable spot for a nap! He has been practicing with his walker and has started with physical and occupational therapy to take his walking from aided to independent.

His favorite activity is listening to music and being hugged. I cannot argue with that! Kent needs a family to love him, and help him reach his full potential. This sweet boy is waiting for you!

He is smart and resourceful in his interactions and playing. He enjoys playing with cars, dolls and animals, flying helicopters, and almost any mechanical objects. He enjoys playing pretend games, like pulling pretend luggage around the house and pretending to cook and serve us with play food, plates, cups, saucers, etc. He loves music and often sings as he goes about his day, and he’s been enjoying learning to play his new harmonica. He interacts well with other children: in our case with our 7- and 8-year-old daughters. He also has a good memory and surprised us by quickly learning things like where all of our dishes go and where we turn to get to our house. He has adapted so well to life in a family, and loves the bedtime rituals of bathing, brushing teeth, getting into his pajamas, and reading; but he also has an endearing habit of making sure the proper lights are turned off, doors are locked where they need to be, etc. He clearly is proud to show he can take on big-kid responsibilities. Zach has to work harder than most children to climb up steps and to get himself up off the floor. But he does navigate steps well, though he needs a boost at times getting into vans or other high places. In December, he was still able to walk normally, except that he has to be more careful than other kids in negotiating uneven surfaces, and steps. He doesn’t let this slow him down or limit his activities. On playgrounds, even with many unfamiliar children, he is not inhibited about climbing the equipment and riding down slides. He accepts help sometimes from us or from our children; other times he wants to show that he can do things alone even if it is harder for him. Zach can sometimes act like a much younger boy. He has a strong stubborn streak, which will sometimes manifest itself in a tantrum. Those tantrums did lessen over the weeks, however. He also enjoys being held, cuddled, and paid attention to and will come and say “Mama bao bao” when he wants to be picked up and carried. As our 7-year-old (without prompting from us) wrote in her journal, “Zach is the best boy I have ever met. He is cheerful and happy.” The medical evaluations we were able to do point to significant medical challenges ahead for Zach, and he will need a loving family to support him through those and ensure that he has the best care possible. Zach loves being a part of a family and will be a blessing and joy for whomever is lucky enough to adopt him.

Amelia

Amelia photo 2Girl, born August 2007
PRC
Tuberos Sclerosis — Congenital Bourneville-Pringle Syndrome

Amelia likes to dance, listen to stories, read picture books, and play hide-and-seek. She came into care around 8 months of age and was sponsored by Half the Sky Foundation’s nurturing program for infants. At 9 months, she could sit steadily alone for a few minutes, grab her feet with her hands, and hold her hands up to be held. At one year of age, she could hold toys and stand when leaning on objects. She enjoyed sitting and rocking on the wooden horse. At 15 months, she was more outgoing and could stand for a long time when holding onto a support. She could grasp toys nearby and she could walk slowly with assistance. When it was time to take a nap, she would shake her head “no.” She could pick up objects with her thumb and index fingers.

Her condition became more serious in 2009, and we hope to see her come home soon so that she can receive the best medical treatment for her condition. Her caregivers exercise her daily to improve her symptoms, and say that “she has already taken the first step in life and will do better in the future.”

Xander

Xander 3XanderBoy, born March 2005

Down syndrome

Listed: April 20, 2013

Xander was found abandoned at 6 yrs old, he’s an active child, running and chasing in the rooms all around, he was even running to go upstairs, however he never did that again after teacher’s criticism so that we could see he’s an obedient child. At the age of 6 years and 7 months, Xander did well in all aspects of taking care of himself: he eats food himself, washes the dishes after meal and takes shower, puts on clothes, socks and shoes, goes to washroom and occasionally he helps caretaker to do works within his abilities. At the age of 6 years and 1 month: he is active, restless and unquiet, able to greet familiar people and call “teacher, aunt, uncle, brother, sister”, he’s really naughty and played on class, he didn’t like to be restricted, playing is the nature for boys, however the teacher demanded him to keep classroom discipline and he couldn’t affect other kids, he’s acceptable to teacher’s words. At the age of 6 years 7 months, Xander behaved well on classes and he was praised many times by teacher, however his expression ability was not good enough and couldn’t express himself with whole sentences, so most of the time he needed the gestures, teacher said he had made big improvements, we trust he would express himself fluently and naturally.

Liam

Boy, born 2008
PRC
Down syndrome, Heart Disease

This playful, adventurous, sweet boy is Liam! He is 8 years old and will absolutely steal your heart. Liam can be quiet and introverted at times, but he is generally a very friendly kid! Whenever volunteers come to the orphanage he cannot wait to take pictures with them. He seems to have an eye for photography – he loves being in pictures and taking pictures of others. He especially likes to come up with funny poses! He can play games cooperatively with other kids, and he has a lot of fun building all kinds of structures out of blocks. Liam likes to be creative and has quite the imagination!

Liam had the opportunity to visit the US as part of the Winter 2016 China Hosting Program! He spent 3 weeks playing, learning, and laughing with his host family. Here is what they shared with us:

“Liam is a very happy little guy with the most contagious giggles you’ll ever hear, and I have no doubt that he’ll bring much joy to his forever family.  He is a very energetic and active little guy who enjoys playing outside (at the playground, swinging and going down the slide are favorite activities), but he also is great at entertaining himself indoors by looking at books or “writing” (making marks on paper). He has a great imagination and especially loves to pretend to cook! He plays well with others but just as often seems to enjoy playing independently.

Liam also has a bit of a mischievous streak — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but he does sometimes need help redirecting some of his energy to a more positive activity. I did see improvement throughout his time here with his ability to be redirected, and discipline-wise, short “time-ins” where we sat together quietly on the floor seemed to be most effective.

Liam LOVES to eat…And would eat ALL the time if I let him. He is not picky at all; he’s eaten everything I’ve given him — fruit, veggies, yogurt, meat, pasta, etc. The hardest thing for him is being done with a meal/snack — even if he has had plenty to eat, he still wants more. This does seem to be getting a bit better, though.

It was fun having Liam here & seeing him come out of his shell! He definitely keeps me on my toes because he is very active/into everything, but he has a great imagination that has been fun to watch. He also really has done a GREAT job transitioning into family life/life in the US.”

You can see more photos and videos from Liam’s time in the US on his advocacy page.

Liam’s nannies tell us he is learning self-care skills. His recent health has been good, and he is not currently showing any symptoms of heart disease. Could you be Liam’s forever family?

Perry

Boy, born 2005
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Perry is a handsome and sweet recently turned 12-year-old boy who is full of smiles and so very ready to have a family of his own! Perry participated in an Ambassadors of Hope camp in the fall of 2015. He was the oldest of all the kids in his group, at just ten. Perry draws well and is a good-natured boy who follows directions and shares with others. His volunteer at that camp stated: “At first glance, he seemed to have so much going against him that he could have been forgiven for feeling defeated; instead, Perry smiled easily and stayed positive despite the cerebral palsy which put him in a wheelchair, and left him in an orphanage.” There is a terrific blog post about Perry that really shows just how special this sweet boy is. Please help us spread the word about Perry!

Perry’s special need is cerebral palsy. He is fully continent, but he does not walk. He uses a wheelchair to get around. Perry needs a family who will see past the wheelchair and see the amazing child that he is and the terrific son they could be missing out on!

Many videos available.

There is an agency which will waive their adoption fees (equivalent of an $8000 grant).

Nate

Boy, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome, mild anemia

Nate is a gorgeous and active 14 month-old baby boy who likes being held by his caretaker. Nate likes bright colors and listening to music. He enjoys playing with the music rattle toy attached to his crib. He is attached to his caregiver and is very happy when he sees his caregiver coming, especially if she is holding a bottle of milk or toys. He will reach out his hands to ask for them and his face is full of happiness. He reacts to sounds around him and if he’s upset, he’ll calm down once held. When the weather is nice, Nate spends time outside to get some fresh air, play in the grass, and look at flowers. He is always happy to be outside and to watch other kids play. Nate bathes daily in the summer and three times a week in the winter. He loves being in the water and will kick the water with his feet, while holding onto the sides or onto a caregiver with his arms. Nate’s file was prepared in January. At that time, he could turn over with a bit of help, hold up his head while laying on his stomach, and grab toys or other people’s hands. He was making babbling sounds. We hope that Nate will be able to come home while he’s still so young!

Nate’s current adoption agency is offering a $5,000 grant towards his adoption.

Caroline

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome; CHD

Caroline is a beautiful little girl who turned four years old this summer. There is something missing though. There’s no gleam in her eyes and no smile on her face. Caroline needs a family to pour love into her and turn that sad little face into a happy one. Caroline has went through a lot without a family by her side- more than any child should have to. Caroline was born with Down syndrome and congenital heart defects – ASD, VSD, and PDA. In July of 2016, she had her ASD and VSD repaired and her PDA was closed.

Caroline is introverted, gentle, and will smile when she is feeling well. She likes listening to music. Caroline is afraid of strangers, but she does know the caretakers who take care of her and she is close with them. Caroline can sit alone and she likes sitting in the walker and moving around. She can call mom and dad and responds well to sounds around her. She is good at imitating adult’s actions and knows how to ask for objects. She can feed herself biscuits and can hold a bottle to drink milk. She is not a picky eater and her favorite foods are eggs, noodles, cakes, and steamed buns. Caroline likes when her caretakers hug and interact with her, but she doesn’t get as much attention and time to do things kids her age should be doing since she lives in a room full of children of various ages in cribs side by side. It’s our hope that she will find a family soon!

Caroline’s current agency is offering a $5000 grant towards her adoption fees.

He can be shy, but he gets along very well with his peers and teachers and warmly greets those familiar to him. Zack adapts well to new situations. He is able to feed himself, get dressed and undressed without assistance, use the bathroom alone, and wash his hands without help. Zack goes to school in the orphanage. He is in class with other children with Down Syndrome, in which he is considered above average. He has some language skills, good fine and gross motor skills, and he knows his numbers, colors, and sizes. Zack can speak common characters, words, and short sentences, though he has poor pronunciation. He can walk, use the stairs, and jump by himself. He enjoys playing catch and playing with balls.

Zack was abandoned at 6 months old. He was born with Down Syndrome and patent ductus arteriosus, a congenital heart defect. We do not have any information at this time on treatment Zack has received for his heart condition, but we have asked for more information about this.

In order to help Zack find a family, we are waiving our entire agency fee. Zack’s family will be responsible for the costs of their homestudy, post-placement reports, dossier authentication, China’s dossier log-in and translation fees, USCIS fees, orphanage donation and travel expenses.

Down syndrome, Congenital Heart Defect (VSD)

Lois is an adorable little girl who will soon be turning two years old!

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

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

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!
