Holland

Holly post-surgeryHolly 2Girl, born Oct 2011
PRC
Blind (retinal glioblastoma; secondary retinal detachment; glaucoma; left eyeball after enucleation)

 

Holland has delayed development. When admitted, she was 4 months old. At that time, she could make the sound of “gugu” if being teased and could hold your fingers if you touched her hand. At the age of 8 months, she could turn over and sit alone, hold the milk bottle to drink milk, and jump if you held her arms. At the age of 1 year, she could crawl forward and backward, knew her name, and could respond if you called her name. At the age of 1.5 years, she could walk with holding hands, imitate speaking, and could understand simple language. Now she can walk alone, can speak simple sentences. Her cognitive ability is not good due to her visual impairment. She likes toys with sound. Holland is quiet, lovely, shy, and sometimes likes toys and music. She likes playing games with familiar people and can smile when happy. Under careful care of everyone, she is growing up healthily and happily. She has built stable and close relationships with the nurturers.

Annie

Annie (3) Annie (2)Girl, born 2009
PRC
cerebral palsy, epilepsy

Annie was found abandon at 1 yr old. Her evaluation in July 2012 stated….. During the test the patient can smile when teased, muscular tension of whole body is high, can not keep her head vertical stably, when held to stand her feet is crossed, when lying on stomach she does not use her forearms to support, she can not roll over, can not sit alone.  She can not get things on her own initiative, can not evaluate her adaptability.

From someone who knows her:
She’s doing really well. She’s on medication to control her seizures and it’s working fine. I have never seen her have a seizure, but I believe it has happened occasionally when she has been febrile with a cold or virus. Of course, does need her medication to keep her stable.  She loves her wheel chair.

Annie’s personality is loving and sweet. She is happiest if somebody will just spend time with her – laughing playing and cuddling her. But she is not whiny when other kids are getting the attention either, so she would be a great fit for a large family. She just enjoys movement and action, whether it involves her, or is going on around her.  One of her favorite games is when you push her wheelchair really fast between two people – she laughs so much at this!

She’s bright and has a great understanding of everything, but cannot communicate verbally.

Her disability is definitely severe, but she is emotionally very healthy. We would so love to see her in a family. Eventually she will need to leave our home, as she is absolutely not palliative, and we desperately want to see that move take her to a loving home! She is really such a beautiful child. She is like sunshine, she warms everyone around her. Even though she is trapped inside a body which will not do what she needs it to do, the beauty of her personality will not be contained. If we can find a family who can manage her physical needs, they will be so blessed by this precious daughter. It makes me so sad to think of her future if she has to remain in  her birth country.

Diagnosis: microcephaly, mental delays

Brenda has delays in her development. She walks, runs, climbs stairs independently. She is able to thread larger rings, to pull circle out of the tray, to fill and empty box, to turn the pages of a book with thick covers, to arrange a tower of 2-10 cubes, arranges puzzles. She prefers to play by herself. Her speech is delayed, though she does respond to her name. She feeds herself with a spoon and drinks from a cup.

Her eye contact needs to improve further. Marilee does not yet respond to being called by name. She responds visibly to touch and relaxes greatly when someone holds her in their arms. Marilee is being monitored by a team of specialists at the orphanage.

Victoria (Meryl)

photogirlGirl, 5 years old
CO-A
Syndrome 3C (cardiac malformations, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism) or
Ritscher–Schinzel syndrome,[2] is a rare condition, whose symptoms include heart defects, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism.

Victoria is a sweet 4-year-old girl who is kind, affectionate, funny, and lovable. She has been living in a foster home since she was 2-months-old, and is very affectionate with her foster family. She loves playing with her foster siblings, and gets along very well with the children closest to her age. Her foster mother describes her as a happy, obedient, sociable child, and they enjoy having her in their home.

Because Victoria has Syndrome 3C, a condition that is characterized by cardiac malformations, cerebellar hypoplasia, and cranial dysmorphism (3C’s), her development is not up to age level. She has been going to therapy to develop her speech skills. She also has Enuresis, which affects her bladder and urination control.

Victoria interacts well with other children and loves to watch TV and play. She can eat, brush her teeth, and dress herself independently. She loves doing her homework and schoolwork, and can concentrate on a task or an activity. She is an extremely outgoing child, who is respectful and always follows directions.

Sweet Victoria is looking for a forever family that will provide her with love and affection, kindness and guidance. She will bring lots of laughter, many smiles, and tons of hugs to your home!

Helen

Girl, born Dec 2008guardianangel

Helen was born with encephalocele, which is type of neural tube defect that occurs very early in fetal life where the embryo’s cells that form the skull do not come together to close over the brain. The result is a defect in the bones of the skull, causing brain tissue to protrude from the skull.

Helen loves to make herself laugh. She enjoys spending her time playing, humming, and observing things around her. She is doing well and getting strong. 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.

Tesia

Tesia

Girl, born Feb 2011
Down syndrome, Cleft Palate, bilateral ear deformity, growth delays, developmental delay

Tesia has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome, but a prospective family needs to be open to the possibility of a different medical diagnosis as Tesia exhibits many characteristics of children who have been diagnosed with Treacher Collins, although TC is not mentioned specifically in her record.

Tesia was found abandoned at around 10 days old. She is a timid, shy and quiet little girl who likes to play with toys especially balls, sand and slides.

Tesia2

Tesia is able to walk and is reported to be toilet trained. She can search for the source of a sound and can make sounds on her own, but did not use words as of the report date. Tesia likes to be cuddled and spoken to. She is waiting for a family of her own who can snuggle with her as they tell her “I love you!”

She has vesicoureteral reflux, hydronephrosis and megaureter in the left. 2-degree hypotrophy; significantly delayed neuropsychological development.

Tenley turns from back to belly and from back to a sideways position. She does not yet make attempts to crawl or stand up independently. She cannot take a sitting position independently yet. However, she is stable once placed in a sitting position. Her legs support her. When placed in a standing position, she can remain standing while holding onto a fixed support. She makes steps while held by both hands by an adult.

As regards the child’s speech, she mostly produces sounds and sound combinations. She responds to voices, although she does not yet differentiate being called by name.

She reaches for, takes by herself or insistently tries to reach a toy. She plays with toys continuously (looks at them closely, transfers them from one hand into the other, examines them with her mouth). She prefers plastic toys. She reacts positively to music (children’s songs).  She tolerates the presence of other children or adults. The child does not always demonstrate readiness to interact or play together with an adult. She has low frustration threshold.
The child eats with an adult’s assistance. She does not yet announce or control her physiological needs.

Updated pictures and information coming soon.

She plays for a longer period with toys, which she takes alone and explores their functions. She tries to imitate observed in the adult actions with objects.

She is now walking too.

Photos and videos from September 2014 are available.

Tina #417

IMG_0201SAMSUNGDOB: 2009
Diagnosis: Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome

Tina has been diagnosed with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, which is characterized by short stature, learning difficulties and distinct facial features. She was born with a heart condition that was surgically repaired. She can roll over and support herself up on her hands. All 4 of her limbs appear to have weak muscle tone, which could be a result of spending prolonged amounts of time in her crib. She will hold a toy in her hand and watch it. She makes eye contact with caregivers and eats from a spoon.

Additional photos of Tina are available.

Update from a family who met her in Nov 2013:
We visited her first during our November visit to Bulgaria. She is absolutely beautiful. She is very sweet and was happy to be held. She clearly has likes and dislikes and is able to make that clear. We spent a lot of time walking with her when she got restless from laying or sitting for too long. I was able to feed her one afternoon. She has some feeding issues and needs to eat pureed or soft foods. She enjoys eating and showed, by her eagerness, which foods were her favorite. She did not show any signs of recognizing her caregivers and showing any varying emotion for different people. We were told that she has not connected to any of her caregivers or show recognition of them. We had an evaluation done on her medical file by our local International Adoption Center. They told us that given what is reported in her MRI that she has fluid where she should have brain matter so her functioning level will likely not make major gains. I can’t say enough how lovely she is and sweet. She showed preference for toys and loves to put things in her mouth! We very much enjoyed our time with her.

 

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.

Gina (Missy)

Gina 2014 (2)Gina 2013Girl, born September 2008
Cerebral palsy

 

Gina has a sunshiney smile!

More pictures available, but she is seated in this chair in all the pictures we have.

From a family who met her in August 2013:
Precious Gina is so willowy and gentle. She is being loved and cared for in her baby house. She is soon to be transferred, though. Her groupa goes outside twice daily on nice days and she sits in a stroller staring at the leaves and feeling the breeze. When touched and cuddled, she moves her head toward you. Her skin is soft, and her hands are so gentle. She blinks with delicate eyelashes and seems to be trying to clear the fog to see you. I got to see her several times and each time her face lit up with a smile and she moved her chest side to side rhythmically to acknowledge her joy at being noticed. She is so full of life, and needs more therapy to help her reach her full potential. Gina deserves so much more than what she has been given. If only her mom and dad could look into her eyes and see how much life is behind them. She is a treasure, and is in desperate need of a family as she approaches the age of transfer. The institution she is headed for will not offer her anywhere near what she has now. Please see Gina before she is lost forever.

Gina received massage therapy regularly, is in diapers, and could use some dental care. She is very thin, but is being offered excellent nutrition. She is in a region that we felt comfortable having just mom stay for much of the travel. More pictures and a video available.

From a family who met her in early 2014: 
I did get to see her several times while the door was open to the groupa’s play room. She is so very skinny now. When she was left in her crib she was usually crying and trying to roll over. One day there was a sweet nanny holding her and singing to her. She had the biggest beautiful smile and was loving being rocked and sung to! Her hair looked like it had grown out some. She had really beautiful, sweet curls.

Gina is now available for international adoption as she recently turned 5.

Abigail

Abigail Photo 1 - April 2014Abigail was born in January 2011 and has been diagnosed with spina bifida and hydrocephalus for which she has received a shunt. Abigail also takes medication for epilepsy, but has not had any seizures since beginning treatment. She may need a surgery to correct her strabismus.

Abigail was recently seen by an orthopedic surgeon who noted that her spinal deformity and spina bifida are severe. He believes that Abigail is paraplegic and will not be able to walk in the future. Her spine will need treatment to correct its position and improve her sitting posture as well as upper body skills. Abigail is able to use her hands very well, moves around freely on the floor and sits unassisted. She struggles with solid food because she does not chew very well, but reportedly has no trouble eating cookies and candy. While Abigail is very vocal, only about 50 words in her vocabulary are completely clear to understand.

Abigail is a bright and engaging child. She speaks in complete sentences, explores, and knows exactly what is asked of her. Abigail is interested in everything, likes to talk on the phone, plays with toys, and sings. She is known as the social butterfly of her orphanage, always smiling and joyful.

From a family who met Abigail in May 2014: Abigail is a little diva! She is so tiny for her age, but her personality is explosive. She is very smart. She told me all the names of the caregivers and children. When she sees someone she shouts, “Come” and taps on the ground next to her. She is so loving, compassionate, and so kind. She frequently hugs the other children on her own doing. She doesn’t have too much use of her legs at this time, but can scoot on her bottom. She has noticeable curvature of her spine. She needs that corrected. It could improve her physical abilities a lot. We put her in a walking position and she could put some weight onto her legs. She laughed so hard at herself when she was “walking.” She uses a little wooden toy with wheels like a wheelchair. She rolls around everywhere, even getting into the shoes as most young girls would. She had a nasogastric tube in her nose while we were there. A virus was going around and she wasn’t drinking enough so they put it in the children to make sure they were getting enough liquids. They said it was temporary and she normally eats and drinks fine. She also can feed herself and loves chocolate. Whoever adopts Abigail will be so blessed. I think she will excel in a family, and the reward for being her mom would be the biggest blessing to anyone.

Additional information is available directly from the agency.

Married couples only due to child’s court appointed guardian in this case.

Updated photos and videos will be available soon.

Quinn

Girl, born January 2009
PRC
Cerebral palsy (High tension in all four extremities); Brain atrophy (slight) and hydrocephalus

 

Quinn was 1 when she came to the institute. In the beginning, she cried often during bed time and at night. In her second month here, she slept well through the night. She could produce basic sounds, and move her head around. Her eyes could follow the movement of toys. At two, she could find the source of a noise and understood when the caretaker called her name.  Due to the tension in her limbs, she still could not sit or stand by herself. The caretaker monitors her when she is using a walker.

Quinn is shy and quiet.

She pronounces sounds. She sits with help and in a positioning therapeutic chair. She can keep her head up when put on her stomach. She eats with good appetite but has unsatisfactory weight gain. She is calm when asleep and awake. Clara has recently started keeping her head up for longer periods of time. She can turn only from back to stomach. She sits only with support.

Shayna

photogirlGirl, age 3
CO-HSA
microcephaly.

Shayna turned three in fall of 2012. With her mother having a mental illness, Shayna was not being well taken care of. Though her mother was not aggressive in any way, she simply did not have the intelligence to properly take care of her. Also, it is assumed that her biological father has passed since her birth. Sharon has been diagnosed with microcephaly, a neurological disease that impedes her mental development by affecting her cerebral growth.

Shayna requires supervision but is learning different avenues of independence. She is very exploratory, seeking alternative ways to achieve small goals. She is also learning to brush her teeth, and other small self-care tasks. With a very loving foster home, Sharon has been able to bond and attach to her foster family members and regularly attends to physical and occupational therapies. If you are interested in learning more about Sharon because you, or someone close to you, may be interested in adopting her, it is possible to translate her 2010 MRI report as well as her 2012 TAC.

Gabby #HA

Gabby_smGirl, born 2009

microcephaly; cerebral palsy – spastic quadriparesis; Congenital heart malformation, severe developmental delays

 

Sweet Gabby has some significant needs.  Gabby was at one time declared unfit for travel by medical professionals. A family would need to be prepared for that possibility.

The agency has additional information and videos available for inquiring families.

From a family who has met her:   I have met this child and reviewed all of her medical records. I’ve spoken at length to the director (who is a doctor) about her needs. I have touched her and spoken to her and prayed over her. I’ve written an accurate description of her here, if you’d like to accurately reflect her needs. She is completely unresponsive to touch and voices.  It sounds cruel, but the reality is that all she does is breathe. She did not move the entire time I was in the room. There was no reaction at all to my touch. Her eyes fluttered, but I honestly think it was involuntary eye movement. I am not a doctor and I would LOVE to be wrong.  But US doctors have looked at her brain scans and said that she does not have a brain”.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.

Chelsea Anne

Chelsea AnneGirl, born February 2009
PRC
Developmental Delay

Chelsea Anne is a precious little girl who came into care when she was 3 years old. She loves to walk around and watch her friends play. She is not able to speak to her friends or caregivers and sometimes she can follow their directions. Chelsea Anne likes to twirl things in my fingers and she especially loves when she has a soft shirt to play with. Chelsea Anne has a difficult time self-soothing so sometimes she will bang on items to help herself calm down. She is working on getting more independent and eating independently.

Blind

Marie is 2-years-old and blind. She has bilateral microphthalmia, a developmental disorder of the eyes, and choanal atresia, a congenital disorder where the back of the nasal passage is blocked, and both affect her motor-sensorial development. Because of her special needs, her mother left her in the hospital the day she was born. She is a very sweet, affectionate girl, and we are desperately trying to find her a family. We only have about 2 months to find her a family, so I hope we can!

Photo available for serious inquiries.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her. The agency anticipates they’ll have her file for 2 months.

Mackenzie

Mackenzie Photo 6 rec. 1-22-014Girl, born November, 2008
Cerebral palsy and congenital developmental defect (cleft palate, right sided syndactyly).

Due to Mackenzie’s difficulty gaining weight, she did not have an operation for her cleft palate, but with time it has closed on its own. As her cleft palate closed itself, she is now able to eat almost everything, and has started to gain weight better. She stands only holding on something, but is able to crawl and scoot around well. She is very smiley and likes to be loved. She knows her name and reacts to it. She seems to know the caretakers, but her reactions and the way she plays corresponds to a one year old child. She plays with toys; but when she sees something new, she wants to take it to her mouth first. She does not speak and does not make sounds. Additional photos, video and report available upon request from the agency.

Comments from a current traveling family: “While visiting with our daughter [in the same orphanage] we had the chance to spend some time with “Mackenzie”. Wow… She is an amazing little girl with such a will for life. She shows such determination in everything she does and truly lives her life not letting anything get her down or in her way. She is such a happy little girl with the most contagious beautiful smile. Her diagnosis does not define her and it is clear that she will live life to the fullest if given the chance. She loves when she is talked to, loves listening to music and embraces the touch of others. She is loved dearly by everyone around her while she waits patiently for her forever family.”

From a family who met Mackenzie in May 2014: Mackenzie is a sweet and loving girl.  She can now pull to a stand without assistance and cruise along stable support.  She is even able to wobbly walk while pushing a walker.

Intellectual delays, possible cerebral palsy, possible autism

Lizzi Belle was first thought to have Down syndrome, but that was not the case. However, she has very severe intellectual delays, possible CP, and possibly autism. Lizzi Belle cannot speak, cannot walk, is not toilet trained, and according to the nannies…”unable to communicate with the outside world”. A family for Lizzi must be willing to love her unconditionally, and care for her needs for many, many years to come. It is impossible to say what the future holds for Lizzi Belle, but it will certainly be brighter with a family to love her! This photo is an older photo, but the agency has a new video to share.

She needs out! She is skeletal and looks to be in very poor condition. Neveah just cries and cries if you get near her. Also, she appeared to be heavily sedated. She had a toy tied to her wrist/hand, and her hands were bound to not scratch herself. So, so sad.

She suffers from cerebral palsy, atopic dermatitus, and intraventricular hemorrhage. From all accounts, she is a loving, sweet girl who loves to interact with other children and adults. She receives lots of therapy, and her teacher shows a lot of tenderness and care towards her. Ysabelle just started eating solid food, and can stand, walk, and squat with help. Her language development is behind, but they hope that with more social interactions her vocabulary will improve. Ysabelle needs a family who would be willing to dedicate themselves to providing therapy and lots of love.

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.

Hannah

Girl, Born September 7, 2008

Hannah is a darling girl who needs a family.   MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE.

From her medical records:  absence of rectum, cranial bones deformity, multiple development pathologies, severe dermatitis, delay of development but she is very smart and active
Hannah is a very friendly girl. She likes to play different toys, with other children of her group. She is very smiling, easy-going girl. She understands everything, but she does not talk yet. She is a smart girl. She is walking independently.

Hannah was born with deformed cranial bones.   Hannah is very smart, she is nearly walking, and has striking blue eyes and a smile to warm your heart!   She has severe dermatitis, from what they are not sure.    She was also born without a rectum, and presumably uses a colostomy bag at this time.  She will definitely need to be seen by a gastroenterologist once home.

From an adoptive family who visited with her in June 2010:  “ Hannah is a precious little angel that despite her challenges, is unbelievably full of life.  She loves her walker, especially moving “lightening fast” down the hallway, to the playroom, whenever she has the chance.  She is a little spit fire…who has a mind of her own;) We took her pacifier (which she loves) out of her mouth to snap a few pictures and she made herself perfectly clear that she wanted it back:)  She is developing very well and  walks by holding on to her caretakers finger.  She can hold a ball/toy and is very social little girl.  She happily perked and stood up to her feet (while in her walker) when I bent down and spoke to her.  When my camera flashed, she threw her little hands up to her face and smiled.  She is an absolute favorite of her caretakers and the Orphanage Director.   The “blue” on her skin is an anteseptic that is applied as a result of her extreme skin allergy.  Given the chance, this little one will grow by leaps and bounds.  She sure stole my heart!”

UPDATE 2013:
Hannah is doing well, she is still in the orphanage and will be available for adoption when she turns 5 in September.  She is a sweet girl! Unfortunately, pictures cannot reflect it, but she is very charming!  We would be happy if a good family could adopt her ASAP!

We got to meet Hannah while touring the special needs floor of the baby house in April 2011.  She is obviously adored by the staff, and is well cared for.  She was super tiny and a little shy, but that didn’t stop her from approaching our daughter who had traveled with us.  Although I didn’t hear her make any sounds, she was very expressive and they quickly and easily responded to her.  She appeared to fully understand what they were saying to her as well, and did respond with head nodding and shaking a few times.  Not only was she walking on her own, she was strong and steady.  Able to get up and down, chase the ball, run off with the ball in her hands.  She is currently living in a caring environment with a great therapy floor, able to help her to meet her milestones and goals.  She will be transferred between the age of 5 & 6 as all children are from this facility.  The reality of where she will go, and the group where she will be fit into should a family not arrive for her BEFORE she is transfer is not good.  She will quickly regress there.

Anna has no sensation in her lower limbs but her upper limbs has full range of movement. She can sit independently but cannot walk. She has no sensation regarding toileting. Her mental and language development is all age appropriate according to her update completed December 2013. Her foster mother says that she is active and gentle.

Anna is a beautiful girl that longs for a family to call her own.

For interested families, the agency has 2 videos of Anna and an update from December 2013.

Anna would greatly benefit from treatment and therapies at a children’s hospital like Shriner’s in the US. This little girl would have a bright future with the love and care of a family.

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.

Fern

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!

Jules

CO-HSA
Arachnoid cyst and bilateral Perisulvian Syndrome

 

Jules entered into the institution when she was two months old, premature baby (30 weeks). Her weight when born was 1,310 grams.  She was transferred to a children’s home because in the previous institution, it wasn’t possible to give her the attention to her special diagnosis.

A neurological study due to her premature birth and development delay was made. It was found in the MRI that she has an arachnoid cyst and bilateral Perisylvian syndrome. After further evaluation, it is also found that she has Schizencephaly and receives therapy and stimulation.  During a visit to the ophthalmologist there is found that she has seesaw nystagmus and hip dysplasia which is being treated with a splint.

Her therapists are focusing on maintaining her in a healthy condition, preventing any illness or complications, stimulating her psychomotor development and constant therapies.  In the short period of time at the children’s home, she has advanced in her psychomotor development very positively. She presents a delay at the moment but doctors are confident that continuing with the stimulation and therapies she will reach development according to her age.

She cannot crawl, but during therapy sessions it has become evident that she can stay on all fours for a short time. She also has a dysplasia and this limits her in her movements. Therefore she cannot walk either, but we are confident that with therapies, lots of love and patience, she will be able to learn some independence and probably to walk too, which due to her base pathology it depends on her evolution. Nevertheless, her gross motor development is very good.

Jules tries to communicate in an assertive way, answers with sweet gestures and facial expressions; she answers when she is being called by her name, follows objects with her eyes and keeps the vision on the objects or persons she is interested in. She makes sounds like stammering and laughing or crying, depending on whether she is happy or not.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.  The agency anticipates they’ll have her file for 3-6 months.

Alana

photogirlGirl, born January 2009
CO-HSA
Prader-Willi Syndrome

Alana was recently diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and a new and recent picture is now available from the agency.

Alana is an only child born to her mentally disabled mother. Alana first lived with her biological mother and grandmother until maternal relatives took her in after observing that her mother was incapable of properly caring for her. In this home, she was physically mistreated and rejected, as she was afraid of bathing and having her diaper changed. The child was removed from their home and is now living in a foster home with a foster mother, that mother’s children, and other foster children.

At exactly 3 years old, Alana had developmental delays, making her cognitive ability closer to that of a typical healthy 7-8-month-old baby. She was still crawling and wearing diapers when she turned 3 years old, but had mastered her pinching/grabbing ability. At the time of her report (3 years old) she babbled and attempted more complex sounds. Alana’s development is quickly improving because she attends a regular therapy treatment for children with delays and disabilities. She stands and gains strength in her limbs with each day.

Over all, Alana is an affectionate little girl who can imitate adults and expresses feelings like happiness, sadness, shame, love and more. She recognizes her caregivers and shows initial nervousness to strangers. Alana is calm, explores her environment and is very adaptable. She plays well alone and sleeps soundly.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.  The agency anticipates they’ll have her file for 3-6 months.
