Asia

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!

Emmaline

EmmalineGirl, born June 2002

PRC
Down syndrome

 

Emmaline is well behaved, lovely and cute. Sometimes when she feels injustice from other children, she would act as a spoiled child in the cuddle of a teacher. As she grows up everyday, we feel happy yet we worry about her, because she is very sensitive and is able to understand what the teachers tell her. Sometimes she could do something out of predict. She has a good friend and they are called “golden partners” just because they are always together whatsoever playing or eating. They share things well and they even do things together such as cleaning floors.

We remember that once she found one shoe on the air conditioning, and she wanted to get it down, however, she was not tall enough and she babbled telling her friend.  The friend took a chair, Emmaline stepped on the chair in order to get the shoe, and finally, she made it.  She really surprised us at that time. She is really amazing. She could think of using a chair to help to get the shoe to finish her goal.

Unfortunately, she seldom speaks, which is the thing that we worry about her the most. Only give her more stimulate of language skills such as doing some oral gym to help her learn simple words, could she incorporate herself into this society well.

Tessa

Tessa1 Tessa2Girl, born November 2010
PRC
Down syndrome, Cleft lip and palate

 

Tessa was sent to a foster family for care the same day she was admitted. Due to her severe cleft palate, feeding her was extremely difficult.

A comprehensive physical was done in spring 2012.   The diagnosis was severe cleft lip and palate and down syndrome. At the time, the doctors examined her heart beat and found everything to be normal.

Tessa-China

 

In May 2012, she received cleft lip repair surgery; the surgery was successful and her recovery went well.   Tessa’s outer appearance improved.

Tessa is a timid and shy little girl who recognizes people.  She is closest to and dependant on her nanny.  She sleeps with her nanny every night.  When she sees the nanny carry another child and not her, she will feel slighted and start to cry.  Tessa can understand our words.  She will turn her head to look around.  If you ask her whether she wants milk, she will respond with a smile.  She can say “nana”.  When interacting with strangers, she will look at you quietly and will not respond to questions.  Only after a period of time of interaction will she start to warm up.  She also likes to look pretty and likes to wear pretty clothes.  When you praise her and tell her how pretty she looks, she will immediately smile happily.

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!

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.

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.

Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

 

Kent is an adorable baby boy who is just 1 year old! He came into care when he was 4 months old, and they began working with him immediately to strengthen his muscles. Kent has Down syndrome, and a VSD (6mm) with left atrium enlargement. He may require a surgical procedure to plug the ASD. Kent’s development is delayed, as would be expected. When he turned 1 year old, he was not yet sitting alone, or crawling. He will need more time, and attention, before he masters these milestones.

Kent is a precious baby boy. He is very alert, and very engaging. His receptive language is very good, and he is beginning to make sounds to communicate with the nannies. 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!

At the age of 6 years and 1 Xandermonth: 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.

language and motor delays

Jennifer, born in April of 2008, is a sweet girl who loves to dress up; when her foster father brought her to the orphanage she was wearing a jacket with flowers on it, and looked like a little princess! He said she often secretly admires herself in the mirror. She loved posing for the camera and didn’t need any instruction – she knew exactly what to do! Her foster family reports that she can make sounds while lying down, but cannot once she is standing, as if something is blocking her throat. Jennifer has a good appetite and isn’t a picky eater, though she especially likes candy! She is diagnosed with delays in motor skills and language, but her latest developmental information is outdated; as of two years ago she could walk, but not run or jump with both feet. She was only calling out simple words, but had good understanding. She plays well with other children and never fights. She especially enjoys music, and whenever she hears a song she sways to the rhythm.

Left peripheral facial paralysis, bilateral hearing disorder, post-op Congenital heart defect

 

Ramona, born April 2011, is an active little girl who loves to play with other children. She has significant hearing loss in both ears and doesn’t speak, but expresses herself with sounds when she’s happy or when she can’t solve a problem. Caregivers report she’s very clever, and understands directions with motions. When looking at a picture book, she’ll point at a picture of a girl, then at herself, and also imitates the facial expressions and actions of children in the pictures. At two years her motor skills were a bit behind, but after several months of training she caught up to the other kids her age and no longer needs therapy. As of a year ago, Ramona could walk on her own, climb stairs holding a railing, stand on one foot for several seconds, and kick a ball. Her fine motor skills are also good; she could eat with a spoon, build a tower of eight blocks, turn pages in a book, and scribble with a pen. When Ramona came to the orphanage at eight months old, she had a scar from heart surgery, and an ultrasound shows no further abnormality. The left side of her face was paralyzed when she was admitted, so the cause is unknown.

Leroy came into care as a baby, and by the time he was two and a half his caregivers were already describing him as extroverted, clever and with sparkling eyes full of mischief. An active little guy, he loved to dance happily in his chair to music. Even as a little tyke, he showed a calm and patient nature when adults were too busy to play with him, and he loved to interact with them when they had time. He’s grown into a handsome boy who lived for some time with a foster family including a mother, father, and another boy a year older who was also a foster child. When agency staff met him in 2010, despite having been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, he was walking independently for short distances, and he could run but would sometimes fall. At that time he wasn’t speaking very much. We’re looking forward to the update we’ve requested, to see how he’s doing now. Like all kids, Leroy needs the love and support of a forever family.

She isn’t speaking yet, but will say “ah” to communicate, and understands simple directions. When she sees other children eating, she’ll reach for her caregiver like she’s asking for food too. She can roll over, sit and crawl, and though our staff saw she can bear weight, she’s not motivated to stand or walk yet. She can feed herself finger foods and hold her bottle to drink, and cooperate when getting dressed. She loves colorful balls, and dancing along with music! We have many photos and videos of this cute little one!

Currently his gross motor skills are pretty good, though he has some trouble balancing, and needs to work on his fine motor skills. He can feed himself and navigate the stairs on his own. He gets along well with other children, and can focus well when playing with his favorite toy.

Milo

MiloBoy, born May 2012
PRC
Apert Syndrome

Be prepared to cuddle and hug as they are Milo’s favorite things to do!  And how could you possibly resist, after you meet this sweet, happy and handsome little toddler? Milo came into care at just a few days old and was diagnosed with Apert Syndrome and laryngomalacia.

He had a difficult start but with the love and attention of his foster family he grew stronger and began to catch up with his milestones. By summer 2013 he could sit up independently, respond when called, frequently share a smile, and scoot around in his walker. He loved to be playfully teased, cuddled and hugged and to play on a cell phone.

Milo lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with his older foster sister with whom he is very close. It would be wonderful if he and Mikayla could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

File lists Symphysodactylia (not mentioned in the file, but she is thought to have Apert Syndrome)

Mikayla is a five year old full of personality and energy. This little lady knows what she wants and loves to have her photo taken and likes to use money to buy things by herself. She is described as active and outgoing and always has a smile ready for anyone around, just in case they might have a camera. She also likes dogs and playing outdoors.

Between 7-9 months she mastered crawling, could make single syllable sound like dad and mom, reach out for objects, and knew when her name was called. During her 10-12 months she could stand by herself then learned to walk alone for a few steps, she was also able to wave bye-bye, point to an object she wanted, sneak open a cabinet to find something she wanted and throw it playfully.

By two she could walk on her own and began to feed herself with a spoon. She was trying more independent tasks like taking off her shoes and socks and going to the toilet by herself. She also began to speak some simple words. Growing more independent at 3 years old, she likes to mimic the adults by helping to sweep the floors and can go upstairs and downstairs.

Mikayla lives in a loving and encouraging English speaking foster family with her little foster brother (Milo) with whom she is very close and adores. It would be wonderful if she and Milo could be adopted together as the brother and sister they have come to be!

Spring

SpringGirl, born September 2012
PRC
Down syndrome, post-op CHD

Spring is 2 years old, and just adorable! She came into care when she was 7 months old (approximately), and was found to have Down syndrome as well as a congenital heart defect. She had surgery in 2013 to correct the TOF/ASD (Tetrology of Fallot / atrial septal defect) and recovered well. Spring is a very quiet, very sweet little one who really needs a caring, loving family, who will provide her the therapy she requires. Spring has the typical delays seen in little ones with Down syndrome, and being confined to her stroller/walker is not helping her. Spring’s left ear folds down a bit, but there is no known hearing issue involved. They have noted in her file that Spring’s favorite activity is “being held” (how sweet is that!?). This little one is ready for a family.

Sensitive special need

Greyham sounds like a total sweetheart! He is described as well behaved and sweet. He has a good appetite and is a good sleeper too.

When his nanny was leaving the welfare institute, he would take shoes over to her. He loved playing hide and seek with other children. His favorite food was egg soup. As of December, he could say “mama (mother), nainai (grandma)” and could eat on his own. Greyham likes to go down the slide and to play with building blocks and stuffed animals. He enjoys watching cartoons and is interested in new things. He really likes to go to the garden and explore. Sounds like Greyham may have a green thumb! Greyham is a happy and lovely child. His nannies love him very much and say that he has a good character! Greyham will need a family who is very open to the fact that this child may not know who he/she wants to be due to the chromosome abnormality.
