Charlotte

Down syndrome

Listed: May 20, 2016

The agency’s team met Charlotte! It never ceases to amaze me how different it is to write an advocacy post after you have met a child! Let me tell you about Charlotte now that we have met her and seen this cuteness in person!

Charlotte is 2. She has Down syndrome and CHD. And she is the cutest, sweetest, silliest little 2 year old girl you could hope to meet!

She is walking by herself and really aced all of our little developmental things we do with little ones. She scribbles and stacks blocks and she is all about the baby puffs! Believe me, she can grab them and get those things to her mouth no problem!

She understands simple commands, though her caregiver pointed out that she also likes to pick and choose which of those commands she actually follows. She is 2, after all.  There was a whole group of little ones in the room with her and the caregivers were singing little songs with them and doing hand motions. She was right in there doing the motions! So, so cute!

Charlotte has a $4,000 grant through her current agency. Please spread the word and let’s get this little one home!

Additional information and photos can be found in this blog post.

Ruthie

RuthieGirl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome

Ruthie will be two in just a few weeks and it sounds like she is so loved by her nannies!

Listed: July 2016

Ruthie is lively, lovely and restless who loves laughing and crawling everywhere. She can grasp the toy trolley and push it forward and also turn to look at nanny from time to time, because she wants to know if she is being watched; if the nanny is looking at her, she will raise her hands very happily and make a bye gesture or push the toy trolley more quickly; sometimes, she would fall down, but as soon as the nanny hugs her and comforts her, she would laugh immediately. She likes listening to music, and she can imitate the actions of clapping hands, shaking head and also will laugh whenever hearing the familiar children’s song. She cannot sit down for a long time, and she likes climbing onto the table top. Every time, when the nanny puts her onto the chair, she would climb onto the table top while the nanny is not looking at her and giggles to express that she has climbed onto and show her great ability.

Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Jaya is an adorable little girl with a sweet face!  During her first year of life, her growth was delayed in comparison to same-age peers. Her caregivers describe her as introverted and she prefers quiet time. She loves being cuddled by her favorite caregiver, and can distinguish her from other caregivers who are less familiar to her. She can hold up her head while lying on her stomach, although she cannot yet crawl or sit upright. She can babble sounds like “nai nai” and her caregivers describe her as easy to smile! She can be very attentive to where she can follow the direction of sounds and voices, and can visually follow moving toys—she’ll even reach out grab toys nearby. WACAP staff met with her in May of 2015 and reported that she was relaxed and had a good connection with her caregiver; she makes good eye contact when interacting with others! She has soft muscle tone and needs extra support of her head and neck when being held. We have several updated photos and videos from our trip for interested families!

Due to increased protections on the children’s privacy in this country, a family must be prepared to travel with very little information. However, families may take a child to an independent medical exam during the first trip and coordinate a phone or Skype consultation with an international adoption specialist in the US before finalizing the registration. A referral only becomes official after a family has registered with the child at the end of the first trip. Hague home study ready families preferred. Available to single mothers.

Nan

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Nan is a sweet peanut! As of her spring 2017 update, Nan was able to sit, crawl, and stand a little, while holding onto the railing. Nan can say simple words like ‘mama’ and ‘nannan.’ She plays well with other children and will smile at someone she knows. When people talk to her, she is very happy. She sometimes takes toys from the other children. If they start to cry, she will join in and cry along with them. Nan loves to look at colorful picture books and knows how to turn the pages, one by one. Her caretakers are working with her on identifying body parts. Nan cries loudly when upset, but the staff can comfort her by talking to her gently. She is scared of strangers and new places and will look for familiar caretakers when in that situation. She likes when her caretakers kiss her cheeks or give her snacks. Nan can hold her own bottle but does eat other foods, such as cut-up meat, soup, sliced fruits, small pieces of bread, etc. She is not a picky eater and she really likes bread and steamed buns. Nan is living in the orphanage. She sleeps well, but does move around a lot at night. The staff will sometimes need to re-cover her or will just give her two blankets. Nan has a cheerful personality and loves being outdoors and playing with toys that make sounds. We’re hoping Nan’s family sees her soon so she is able to come home while she is still so young.

There is a $5000 agency grant available, through Nan’s current agency.  They also have video and additional pictures.

Lilly

Girl, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

Every once in awhile you come across a file with the sweetest, heartfelt expressions written about a child. That’s what I found in the file of precious Lilly, who recently turned one. Lilly’s file said things like “She would smile sweetly, just like a little angel without wings,” “She is very cute and favorable,” and “When someone had fun with her, she will smile innocently. It showed that she is a girl with good personality.” It is clear this baby is not only sweet, but adored!

Lilly is a good eater and sleeper and she really likes taking baths. She loves to play in the water and kicking the water with her feet makes her squeal with excitement. Lilly was turning from side to side when her file was prepared and she is receiving physical therapy. The staff believes she is going to continue to surprise them. It is our hope that Lilly can come home to her family before her 2nd birthday!

Blythe is a beautiful one-year-old baby girl. Blythe is a quiet and easy-going baby. She loves when adults talk to and smile at her. When someone is talking to her, she smiles and listens so well that it seems like she understands exactly what you are saying- she just might have excellent receptive language skills! Blythe is very curious about new things and likes playing with bright colored toys and toys that make sounds. She is very observant and good at following objects, as well as holding onto objects, including her feet- she loves to play with them. Blythe is a sensible, loving, well-behaved, and happy little girl who likes to play a little before putting herself to sleep. We bet she’d love being rocked by a mom or dad, listening to stories and songs told and sung just to her. Blythe was born with down syndrome and a heart defect- endocardial cushion defect (complete).

Azalea

Girl, born 2015

Down syndrome

Precious Azalea is a 1.5-year-old baby girl who is quiet and introverted. She likes it when her foster parents hold her outside while on a walk. Azalea loves to babble to greet familiar faces and voices, but is afraid of strangers. She also loves the sounds of bells and music. If she is crying and music is turned on, she will stop crying immediately and look around for the source of the sound with her eyes open wide. Azalea does not like to take a bath-she will scream before even getting wet. Her foster parents have to be patient and comfort her until she adjusts to the bath. Azalea’s file was completed when she was 8 months old- at that time she was not able to crawl or stand, but could sit with support. She was using facial expressions and babbling to respond to her foster family talking to her. Azalea responds to her name being called, looks for the source of the sound, and recognizes familiar people and objects.  She is newly listed and we’re hoping her family sees her and can bring her home while she’s still so young!

Catherine is diagnosed with Down syndrome, and she also had surgery for a heart defect in February 2016. As of October 2016 she could roll over easily and hold herself up when lying on her stomach. When lying on her back she would grab her feet to roll around and play. Her caregivers play a game of catch with her by tossing a pillow back and forth, and she grins gleefully when they tease her. She started babbling at six months old, and at a year and half she could say “mama.” Her favorite toys are the ones that make music! Catherine needs a caring family to help her grow and develop.

The agency who currently holds Catherine’s file is offering a $4000 grant.
