Lily

Girl, age 12
Cerebral pasly, HIV

Known as Lily by her committed orphanage volunteers, she recently had a big celebration for her 12th birthday. Lily is described as a caretaker with a bright, warm and joy filled personality. She loves to wear new dresses and new shoes, play with baby dolls, read books, color, laugh, give hugs and dance. She works with a gait trainer to walk for her cerebral palsy, but it’s noted that she has a preference to run. With the trainer, she is able to kick a soccer ball and use a scooter standing up. She is able to speak, uses a communication program so she is able to share her thoughts and needs with others and has started to spell and read short phonetic words. Her volunteer notes that Lily has an understanding of what it means to have a forever family and has a strong desire to have this herself.

Why hasn’t anyone chosen her? Don’t they know how amazing she is? Can’t they see how much joy she would bring to their family? Can’t they see that she is so much more than her cerebral palsy? That she is smart, she loves to laugh, she is gentle, and loves going to church. Her cerebral palsy doesn’t define her. – Lily’s foster mother

Lily is diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and HIV. She’s reported to be an eager learner and receives physical, speech and occupational therapies.

Eligible families may qualify for a grant through her current agency in addition to a $5,000 Child Specific Grant (exp 7/31/17).

Luke

Boy, born 2007
PRC
Sensitive special need

Listed: June 2017

Luke has a sensitive special need – XY46. He’s in a very poor orphanage, where adoptive families have met him.   Luke is in a very under resourced orphanage in rural China where he is not able to attend school, lacks proper nutrition, and the opportunity to play with even basic toys.

Luke is a charming boy who has a close relationship with his caregivers and is known around the orphanage for his helpfulness. He is attentive when the little ones cry, and runs errands for his caregivers when they need an extra hand. Luke likes to play games with others, especially ball games. Luke is active and extroverted. His favorite meal is egg and pork!

Luke’s development is fully age-appropriate. He will need a family who understands the complexities of his medical need and can offer him the unconditional love and support he needs to flourish. We believe Luke will thrive in the loving care of a family like yours. We’ve met him and loved hanging out with this smart little guy! Is he the child you’ve been waiting for?

Leo Yi

Boy, born 2004
PRC
PKU (Phenylketonuria)

Leo has a team of advocates on his side, because we have all fallen in love with this sweet, gentle boy. Leo has PKU; this is a special need where his body does not process protein in a typical manner. Because he has not had a special vegetarian-type diet, his untreated PKU can cause developmental delays. He was hosted last summer, so his host family was able to get good observations on him. His host mom is a teacher, so she’s trained to know what to look for. He has developmental delays, and it’s uncertain how much he’ll learn or catch up when in a nurturing, supportive environment. He did make good progress when he was with his host family. He is flexible in transitions and open to new environments. He slept soundly, and through the night. He followed along with his host family, and enjoyed being with them.

He ages out April, 2018, so he needs a family quickly!

Personality-wise, he is very sweet, gentle, became bonded to his host family. He loves attention, and loves to play. He is silly in a gentle sort of way. He went camping with his host family, and loved it. He bonded well to his family and he interacted with them in a playful manner.
