Aren

Aren (1)Aren (2)Boy, born January 2011
PRC
post-op meningomyelocele; post-op hydrocephalus

Meet handsome Aren! He is diagnosed as post-op meningomyelocele and post-op hydrocephalus. Aren has an outstanding personality, is very determined, and is all boy. He is clever and can understand adult’s facial expressions and tones and gives the corresponding response. Aren likes to play in the yard, touch the flowers and grass, pick berries, and watch birds and butterflies flying, the fish in the pond, and the dog in the doghouse.

In April 2011 Aren was sent for surgery for lumbosacral meningomyelocele. He healed well and was discharged. Rehabilitation helped with his recovery and mobility. In September 2013, Aren was sent to the hospital where he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. He received a shunt and now he is fine. In May of 2014, he was placed with a foster family. The foster parents love him very much and view him as a part of the family. Aren’s surgery caused his abnormal walking. As of September 2014, he could stand up and walk with his hands holding onto something for support, climb, crawl fast, and could go upstairs and ride the rocking horse. He has a good appetite and sleeps well. He could make the sound of mama and could express goodbye and welcome by gestures.

Cassie

CassieGirl, born August 2009
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Cassie is a beautiful little girl who is 5 years old. She was found by a family when she was about 7 months old. They took her home and kept her until she was about 17 months old, then took her to the police station. Cassie was found to have cerebral palsy. She had a difficult time at the orphanage when she first arrived. She kept calling for her “neinei” (grandmother) and was inconsolable. After a bit, she warmed to the nannies and the other children. Through therapy, Cassie’s muscles are less tight, and she is able to crawl, sit alone, and can stand with assistance. She can speak (though not as well as her peers), and uses some sign language. Cassie can count, and has a good memory. She likes to sing, and loves to play with dolls! Reading about her progress with therapy at the orphanage, imagine what could happen with formal therapy once she is home! Sweet Cassie is waiting for a family. Please bring her home soon!

Sherman

Sherman  (1) Sherman  (2)Boy, born August 2004
PRC
Mild cerebral palsy

Sherman is outgoing, clever and diligent. He enjoys talking with others and likes to imitate sounds and actions. Sherman enjoys listening to music and loves to dance! He is curious about new things and likes to read books, look at pictures, listen to stories and go outside. Sherman has mild CP and his physical development is behind other children of his age. He has been in a foster family since 2006 and really thrived in that environment. Sherman likes to be independent and is a great helper!

Update from his host family: Sherman is being hosted in the US this winter! Sherman is a super sweet boy who is easy to fall in love with. He is overall very obedient and does a good job communicating despite language differences. He has been picking up some English, including counting and saying things like, “bye-bye” and “good night”. He gives and receives hugs, kisses, and high fives easily. He is polite and will say, “Thank you Mama” when the host mom gives him something. He gets very excited sometimes and will get very loud and animated (both when he’s happy and upset). He is very ticklish, smiles and laughs a lot, and loves to dance, which is super cute! He is also quite the poser for the camera. He is pretty easy going and has become easy to correct. When he really wants something or things don’t go his way (i.e. losing at a game) he will whine and pout, but usually can be persuaded to have a better attitude pretty quickly. He likes to play by himself a lot, but will play with others sometimes. He doesn’t seem interested in watching TV, unless it’s a Chinese cartoon (then he could probably spend hours watching if you let him). Sherman likes playing in the backyard~ going down the slide, digging in the gravel, riding bikes and scooters around. He also seems to like putting the train track together and running the train on it. He found the game, “Trouble” and LOVES IT! He also got the card game “War” for Christmas and has enjoyed playing that a lot. The host family played bowling on the X-box with Sherman, which he thought was the coolest thing ever. He loves the computer and will ask to go on it a lot, and the host family got him an mp3 player for Christmas which he now listens to all the time. When he first arrived, Sherman could do a 24 piece puzzle independently, but was frustrated and unable to do puzzles larger than that. The host family gave him a 48 piece puzzle for Christmas, which he tried to trade with the host daughter, because she got a 24 piece puzzle that he could do. Of course, she didn’t want to trade because hers was a princess and she can’t do bigger puzzles either. Anyway, we have been working on how to do puzzles together (separating the edge pieces, looking for all the pieces for one particular part of the puzzle, etc.), and one day he called the host mom downstairs to show her that he had put his 48 piece puzzle together completely independently! She was so proud of him! The host family hopes Sherman finds a forever family soon!

Wesley

Wesley (1)

Wesley (2)Boy, born July 2013
PRC
Mild cerebral palsy, encephalodysplasia rickets

Wesley is an adorable little boy! When lying on a bed, his little feet will kick up and down ferociously. With the support of things, he can sit for a while. His little hands can make a hugging movement, signaling to the nannies for a hug. He loves to smile and is clingy to the nannies. He can clap his hands and sometimes holds the milk bottle on his own. There is a difference between Wesley’s movements and other children of the same age, perhaps because of the weight of his head. When he sits, he has to lean against a fixed support, and because of the weight of his head, he does not like to sit and always lies on the bed. Wesley can lift his head, turn over and grab toys to play with. He also likes to listen to music. Wesley is not shy with strangers. He likes to be held and will let anyone hold him. He likes to have the older women sing to him, talk to him and feed him. We really hope Wesley finds a home soon!

PRC
Cerebral palsy, bilateral corneal leukoma, congenital heart disease, congenital nerve deafness

Felicia is an energetic and adorable little girl. She really likes to cling to her nannies. Each time she sees them, she will extend her little hands and want the nannies to hold her. She is also rather sensible. When the nannies are busy, she will cleverly go to the side and play on her own, sometimes raising her little head to look and then continuing to play in her own little world.

Little Felicia has rehabilitative training every day in the mornings and afternoons, so that she is able to become more agile. She has congenital nerve deafness. She does not respond to her name, and she cannot hear someone calling her from behind or from another room. She has not been potty trained and cannot go to the bathroom on her own. When the nannies play with her, she is really adorable and rather likes to smile, especially when she plays with light up toys. Help us find a forever family for this little angel!

Simon has low vision. He is a lovely little boy who loves to play and cuddle everyone. He has low vision and therefore can still see large shapes. He loves playing in the playroom with his new friends or big toys. We are letting him get settled in so that he can become familiar with his nannies and friends at his new foster home for orphans with visual impairments. He has done well at primary school and he enjoys his classes. Not only has it greatly improved his communication skills, but it has been a lot of fun for him too. Every time he sits in a carboard box, it turns into a bus or a boat. He has an amazing imagination! Simon went up in a cable car once and he said it is now his favourite thing to do, he loved the feeling of flying! Simon can see characters, but it hurts his eyes if he looks at them for too long, and so he is learning Braille, which will be his primary means of reading and communication. His speech and language skills are very good, and he loves talking and playing with his friends! Wouldn’t you love to be the family who gets to ride the cable cars with him?

When someone calls her name, she would nod with a smile. Jianna is now attending the second grade in the kindergarten. In the kindergarten, the teacher would lead the children to do serial broadcast gymnastics. When the teacher plays the music, Jianna would sway her body to the music and perform some simple actions. She cannot understand figures, colors and pictures. When the teacher teaches other children to read aloud, she would utter some uncertain syllables with the teacher.

Jianna (3)

Jianna can understand what the teacher taught sometimes. When back home from the kindergarten, she would take out all the books and open the leaves one by one and then draw circles or 1 on the notebook with a pen. At home, she would help the foster mother to do some housework. For example, she would help the mother to fold the clothes when she saw her doing that. When she saw the mother was peeling fruits, she would bring a rubbish basket to her. Jianna would help tidy the table after dinner. She doesn’t feel shy when meeting a stranger. If you play with her, she would play with you. If asking her to dance, she would clap her hands and sway her body and smile a sweet smile. Jianna understands the instructions from adults but cannot say, using a gesture to express her meanings. When she sees something she doesn’t know, she would pat the shoulder of her foster mother and asks her to tell her. She is fond of outdoor activities. Every weekend, she would visit the children downstairs in the yard with her foster sister to play games.

Jimmy

JimmyBoy, born July 2002

Blind

Jimmy is blind. Jimmy lived with his grandmother when he was little, but when she died he moved to his local orphanage. When he came to the specila foster home for the visually impaired, he was very sad. The first time he smiled was when he received training on how to use his cane.

He takes a two hour nap each day. After he wakes up, he watches cartoons or will play with other children in the yard. He then eats dinner and some fruit after that. He has deep sleep. His foster mom watches his facial expressions to determine if he needs to use the bathroom. She then asks him if he needs to go. If he says yes, she will take him to the toilet. He can take his pants off by himself, but needs help putting his pants back on. Now that he goes to school, his language is better than before. He has good imitating ability. Every morning he sings children’s songs he learned at kindergarten. He can put on and take off clothes with help, can go up and down stairs by himself; and he can eat without help (though he eats slowly since he can easily spill). He likes to smile at acquaintances. Sometimes he will call mama or nana and then continue to do his things. if you ask him to share his food, he will feed you and smile at you. Neighbors always say he is a quiet boy who has a ready smile. During summer vacation, his foster mom often takes him outside to let him experience more fresh things and to see and learn new things.

Wouldn’t it be nice if Robinson was home next Christmas celebrating with a forever family of his very own?

Tobias is currently at the very bottom of the shared list. Until this month, his file sat with only one update in 8 years, which is still untranslated. As is very common in orphanages for children with no vision, it is possible that Tobias has not received the necessary stimulation and training that every child needs for proper growth and development. His latest update reported that he is delayed compared to his peers. This is not surprising since he does not attend school. Although small for his age, he is a healthy boy. Small toys that make noise are his favorite. He is not a picky eater, but is not very interested in snacks. Tobias struggles to communicate with those around him, and the orphanage staff says that he displays autistic tendencies.

Susy

Susy 1 Susy 2Girl, born Nov 2009
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Susy is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Her CP seems to be fairly moderate. Susy was found when she was about two years old. Too little tension in her muscles prevented her from sitting or standing on her own, so that spring she received intensive therapy for three months through which she made very significant progress with her motor skills. She’s described as even-tempered and patient, although she still struggles to do some things the other children do easily. She’s thought to be clever and loves to laugh and smile with the nannies, touching their faces for connection. Emotionally, she’s right on track with her peers. Susy likes watching TV and listening to music, being held, and going outside to play. She rarely cries, unless she’s hungry. Her caregivers say she is well-loved and that they are deeply impressed by how much progress she’s made. She can sit unassisted and walk holding hands. It would be amazing to see the changes in this child with the love and support of a family and some good physical therapy.

The following is an update that just arrived (10/2014) for Susy: She can move around with a walker and stand up with assistance. She cannot feed herself yet. She can only smile. She knows how to read the face of adults. She can reach to get stuff from other kids. She is afraid of strangers.

Brain damage

Nelton underwent a comprehensive assessment and joined a special education program inside the institute. We have a specialized teacher that plans specific content for him to learn every day. Since he began the special education class, Nelton has greatly improved. He is very interested in learning mathematics, art, and music. Everything that he studies, he is able to really know. Now, Nelton has learned how to count from 1 – 20 and he can write Arabic numerals from 1 – 10. He has even learned how to sing children’s songs, dance, and draw. His passion is drawing. One time when he went to class with good behavior, the teacher rewarded him with a watercolor brush. After he returned to his room, he first showed it off to everyone, and then he started to paint on the wall a house, sun, clouds, grass, kittens…After a while, when he was finished with his “great composition,” even though he drew on the wall, we had no choice but to say Nelton’s painting is truly very good, and therefore the nannies still praise him. He is the “Little Artist” of the Children’s Department, but he never brags about it. He usually takes the initiative to teach the other children.

Nelton’s comprehension abilities, language organization abilities, and expression abilities are all very good. He is capable of understanding adults, and is even able to fluidly express his own opinions, and at times, he runs into differing opinions with the nannies. He will “argue strongly on just grounds” and he can even persuade the nannies. He also understands politeness. When he sees someone he will take the initiative to greet them, and when he sees someone off, he will say “good-bye.”

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.

Aurora

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.

Amblyopia (both eyes); congenital nystagmus (both eyes)

Annabelle is a beautiful little girl. Her caregivers report that she is blind, but can see some light and objects. She will giggle and smile when a camera flash goes off, so it does appear that she can see light. Annabelle’s development is delayed, but from caregiver reports, she spends most of her time in a crib or in one area. So it is quite possible that some of her delays are from institutionalization.

From an update in late 2012, Annabelle is able to sit and stand with support and can play while on her stomach. She is a quiet child who does not communicate much. She may need to have her hearing checked. She has never seen an eye doctor. Annabelle needs a family who can get her in to see medical specialists. Are you the family who can giver her the attention she needs and deserves so she can blossom and reach her full potential?

March 2014 update-
Annabelle shows delays and can only see light. She is very outgoing and enjoys playing with kids and adults. In a current video, she can be seen standing up as well as trying to repeat a few words. Annabelle loves hugs!
