Dimitri CollageBoy, born February 2012
PRC
arthrogryposis

3 year old Dimitri is too cute for words! Be sure to watch his new video and read his wonderful update below- it’s impossible not to fall in love with this little guy. Dimitri is diagnosed with arthrogryposis and a deformity of his left foot. Dimitri has thrived under the care of his orphanage and their Half the Sky program. Though I did not meet him, I did visit his orphanage a month ago and it is by far one of the best ones in China. They are doing good things there, as the kids were all doing well and were being prepared for their forever families. Dimitri is very smart, has the best smile and cutest little faces ever, and doesn’t seem to let anything stop him! His arms are affected by the arthrogryposis so he uses his toes and feet for many tasks, such as playing a keyboard, holding a cup, etc. He walks independently and can go up and down stairs. His arm function has improved and his grip strength is increasing as well, but he could use some strengthening of his core muscles. Dimitri is able to count to 20 and speak in full sentences of 5 or more words. Dimitri is a treasure just waiting to be discovered! Could Dimitri be your son?

KennyBoy, born 2013
PRC
Congenital Heart Defect

Kenny recently turned two years old. When he was about 4 months old, he was left at a safe haven drop spot at the local orphanage. Kenny has a heart defect (patent foramen ovale) but it is reported to be closing on its own and it’s thought that it will not require surgery. He may have bronchopulmonary dysplasia (abnormal development of lung tissue) which affects premature babies, who are born with underdeveloped lungs. [According to the internet, many babies diagnosed with BPD will recover close to normal lung function, but this takes time. Scarred, stiffened lung tissue will always not work as well as it should. But as infants with BPD grow, new healthy lung tissue can form and grow, and might eventually take over much of the work of breathing for damaged lung tissue.] Kenny received treatment for BPD in March, 2014 and now his condition is improved, with decreased incidents of shortness of breath.

Recently, the orphanage’s physical therapy team has been working on the right side of his body, which seems a little weaker than the left. He is not able to hold things in his right hand. Kenny’s mental development is age appropriate. His physical development is good – he can crawl, sit, and walk holding on. Kenny is very attached to his nannies and loves to play with the 10 children in his room. Can Kenny be the son you’ve been searching for?

Maybe Hudson is the son you’ve been searching for?

KeeganBoy, born May 2010
PRCKeegan2
Strabismus, speech delays, possible mild hydrocephalus

 

Keegan is a handsome, and active boy who is 5 years old. He came into care when he was 2 years old, unable to walk or talk. He soon began walking, but his speech was limited to “yiyi yaya”. By the time he turned 4 years old, he was talking, but adults were not able to understand what he said. Keegan has strabismus (crossed eyes), and has difficulty seeing things up close. He needs an eye exam, and possibly glasses to correct the strabismus and any vision issue. A CT scan showed possible mild hydrocephalus, which has not required any treatment at this time. Keegan is very friendly, active, and an easy going little boy. He gets along well with other kids and really loves to play outside! Keegan needs a family, correction for his vision issue, and help with his speech. Oh…he would also probably like a bike and a swing set!

Microtia, absence of iris (Aniridic keratopathy?)

Ty is a handsome little guy who will be 5 years old in September. He was found abandoned when he was about 4 months old. His initial exam at the orphanage discovered he has microtia affecting his right ear. Ty is able to hear. In fact, the orphanage staff reports his hearing is very good! Ty also has an absence of iris in both eyes. They have diagnosed him with cataracts, however, with the iris issue, he may have aniridic keratopathy.  Ty’s file was done when he was 2 years old, and we are waiting for more recent info. At 2, he was climbing into and out of his crib, and loved to play with toys. Ty was imitating, and saying a few words. His receptive speech was very good. Ty (at 2) did not like to be alone. That is the one time he would be very sad, Ty needs a family…one with several kids would be great! That way, he would always have someone around to play with. No more loneliness! Ty is waiting for you!

jude1

Boy, born 2011

Severe delay of physical and mental development

NOT available until Fall 2016

VIDEOhttps://youtu.be/i4KTSYVhRmU

He is currently not available until fall 2016 but his coding may change once he has a new medical exam when he is transferred soon! We will update as soon as we know!

From a family that met him 6/15:

We spent about a week with this sweet boy when we were adopting our son in June 2015. He is so desperate for love. He called me momma and begged my daughter and me to hold him. We loved on him as much as possible and he soaked it up. He picked up English words very quickly, and remembered day after day that I had hand sanitizer in my purse and asked for it by saying, “soap!” He loved to play ball with my kids, and the nannies would let him push the baby carriage around during walks. He has the most infectious giggle I’ve ever heard. He walks well, but the nanny indicated that he has issues with his knees. It didn’t stop him, though!

He needs a good, patient, and loving family to give him what he needs. He is so skinny and needs good nutrition. He has very minor orphanage behaviors, but from the progress he made just being with us for a few days, I know he will flourish in a caring family. He will be transferred to a horrible place (the director of the orphanage told me it is horrible), likely very soon, since he’s almost 4.

This region is beautiful and very cost efficient. The orphanage director is lovely. The facilitators are amazing, and the judge is hilarious and wonderful! You will be able to stay in a hotel and walk to the orphanage and enjoy the beauty and culture of a wonderful town.

LOTS of videos available!

He has made a great recovery and he has returned to his foster family back in his province. He may need additional surgery down the road but his condition is much improved now.

Frankie Lee is reported to have normal intelligence but hasn’t attended school yet due to his cardiac condition..

Frankie Lee is a bit shy and very attached to his foster mom. He loves listening to music and dancing along to the rhythm. Could Frankie Lee be your son? Can you provide the cardiac care he needs?

Rigby (1)

Rigby (3)Boy, born August 2013
PRC
Motor delays

Rigby is a precious little one who is 22 months old. He came into care when he was about 10 months old…wheezing, and in need of help. After some TLC from the nannies, there was improvement in his health and motor skills. He was still behind his peers, but had become a very engaging and social baby. At 17 months of age, Rigby could roll over, sit with some support, and play with toys. Rigby was not able to crawl or walk at that time. He loves to be around the other kids. The more action, the better! The nannies have noticed he has high muscular tension and uncoordinated movements. There was no formal diagnosis made in his file which had resulted from a thorough exam. Rigby is an active, loving, happy little guy who really needs a family and some good therapy to help him with his gross motor skills. He needs to come home.

Hewitt (1) Hewitt (2)Hewitt (3)Boy, born September 2010
PRC
Hydrocephalus, Dandy-Walker Syndrome, post-operative meningoencephalocele, post-operative peritoneal shunt of arachnoid cysts

Handsome Hewitt is a sweet little boy who needs a family willing to look past all the labels he’s been given and see him for the precious little boy he is and the wonderful son he will be. Hewitt can sort objects by color, follow directions, make great eye contact and conversation, and draw quite well. He is clearly a happy little guy with a sweet and gentle personality. Hewitt is from a very good orphanage and he is living with a foster family on the grounds of the orphanage. Hewitt loves to play and sing!

Hewitt is diagnosed as having hydrocephalus and Dandy Walker syndrome and is postoperative for a meningoencephalocele and postoperative for a peritoneal shunt due to arachnoid cysts.

Hosted in February 2016 – His host mama says:
Tristan is a precious little boy with a lot of energy. He loves being with people and for the most part is gentle and kind to other children. He really desires to please and loves to help around the house. He enjoys playing outside and wants desperately to learn how to ride a bike. He likes to listen to music. He has fun trying English words and cracks up when google translate translates his Chinese into silly things. He is very responsive to love and attention and is an intuitive little boy.

Tristan has adjusted well. Initially he stuck pretty close to me but has bonded more with host dad in the last week. He’s also been having a lot of fun playing with our children. The three of them were dancing to music tonight. He and our daughter made up some hand motions to one of the songs. He also enjoys playing with the baby (age almost 2) and is very gentle with her. He really looks up to our older girls (ages 10 and 12) and loves when they read to him or spend time playing with him.

On Saturday he found a children’s worship cd and has been listening to it over and over. He has played it as he’s fallen asleep every night since then. Tonight we caught him on video singing along with pretty decent English.

We took him swimming with friends…he really enjoyed that. He went to church with us and wasn’t so sure about it the first week. This past week he did much better, although it’s still hard on him to be around so many different people who all want to say hello to him. He gets pretty silly and sticks very close to us.

He has participated in our homeschool…he loves to water color, cut paper, glue, and paint. We’ve also been able to “read” several books to him through google translate…we discovered you can take a picture of the words and it will translate! Very fun! He enjoys that a lot. We’ve gone to the park, played in our back yard (he loves it out there), ridden bikes together, and gone for family walks. Tristan does very well with a predictable schedule and does struggle when things are different than the norm. He really likes it when we are all together. He eats pretty much anything we give him, although he didn’t want to touch oatmeal the first time we served it. He did like it the second time. He especially LOVES eggs, apples, and carrots .

The first week and a half that Tristan was with us, he struggled any time we needed to say no to him…especially in the afternoons. He was having melt downs almost daily. We would simply hold him until he calmed down and was willing to listen. He did get pretty worked up several times and tried to bite, scratch, and throw his head back. As he has settled into our home, these met downs have occurred less and less. He didn’t have any melt downs over the weekend even though our schedule was different than the norm and things were busier. He has been much quicker to listen and to say sorry when we ask him to.

Tristan is a very sweet little boy. He’s very active and likes to be outside a lot. He’s gentle with other children for the most part and loves to be silly. He likes to be held and loves to snuggle. We’ve all fallen in love with him in the short time he’s been with us.

Nathan 2016 (1) Nathan 2016 (2)Age: 3
Diagnosis: Infantile cerebral palsy – quadriparesis; Hypotrophy; Delay in the neuro-psychical development

The child is considerably delayed in the psycho-motor development. He is not stable on his legs. He can turn from his stomach on his back and vice versa. He can sit alone and can stand up on his knees. Reacts to emotional stimulus with smile, makes sounds, but does not pronounce syllables. He is a picky eater. His sleep is calm. The child reaches out and grabs a toy and plays with it by moving the toy from one hand to the other. He looks at people and follows objects by turning his head. He recognizes known people. He can solve simple problems – moving to an object he is interested in. He is mostly happy, gets irritated when placed in a noisy surrounding. He listens to speech but doesn’t seem to understand it. He reacts mainly to the tone. He can play on his own by manipulating simply with toys (takes cubes out of a box and hits them together).

Photos and videos from March 2016 are available through the agency.

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

Ace (2)Ace (1)Boy, born October 2011
PRC
Lower limb weakness

Three-year-old Acer is quite the cutie! Acer is diagnosed as having lower limb weakness. He came into care at the approximate age of two, so he has only been in the orphanage for a little over a year and a half. His nannies report that he has big beautiful eyes and is very handsome….that is clear from his pictures! When his file was prepared in Oct. 2014, he could stand up and walk while holding onto something or holding someone’s hand. He could also walk by pushing something like a small stool. He is cooperative and can help put on and take off his own clothes and shoes. Acer’s favorite toy is the wooden rocking horse! He can get on and off of it and likes sitting and riding on it. Acer likes to hold the milk bottles to help feed the younger children. He also likes playing outside. The slide and swings are his favorite, but he enjoys playing with balls and toy blocks too. He can build a tower with 5-6 blocks. He doesn’t want the other kids to touch his blocks or he’ll cry. Acer likes taking baths and playing in the water. He eats noodles, eggs, and bread regularly. Acer receives some physical therapy, but would benefit so much more from the love and support of his own family.

Bairn (1) Bairn (2)Boy, born May 2010
PRC
Right hemiplegia, pigmented nevus on back of shoulder

Gorgeous 5 year old Bairn lives with a foster family that has 4 other children and he gets along with them very well. Bairn’s gross motor skills have improved- he can run and climb as well as his peers. If he is in a hurry when he runs, he sometimes falls. His fine motor skills are also improving. He mainly uses his left hand, so the foster family encourages him to use his right as a helper hand as much as possible. Occupational therapy would really be very beneficial for him. Bairn enjoys singing and dancing in his preschool class! Maybe Bairn will sing and dance his way into your heart and eventually into your home.

Jeremy (1)Jeremy (2)Boy, born June 2011
PRC
Cleft palate, post-op cleft lip, limb differences for hands and feet

Meet Jeremy! Jeremy just celebrated his 4th birthday. He is an outgoing and energetic little boy who loves playing games. Jeremy will help his therapy teachers clean up and organize the toys in the rehabilitation room. Though he is missing fingers and toes on all four limbs, he does many things for himself, such as eating meals and putting on his shoes. His language is somewhat delayed, likely because his cleft palate has not been repaired yet. He understands simple directions and can point to his ears, nose, mouth and hands when asked. He walks well on his own and can go up and down stairs. He especially enjoys music and likes to kick a ball around when he plays outside. Jeremy has the best smile- he just radiates happiness! We hope adorable Jeremy will be home to celebrate his 5th birthday with a forever family of his own!

DylanDylanAge: 3 years

viral meningitis at the age of 3 months, internal and external hydrocephalus, after installation of a lumbar-peritoneal shunt; agenesis of the corpus callosum; heterozygous Beta-thalassemia; he was diagnosed with epilepsy that was resistant to the conducted treatment and after a check-up MRI examination, a shunt was installed. After the surgery the EEG results were within the norm and the anticonvulsant treatment was stopped; Delayed physical and psychological development in all areas;

Dylan takes a sitting position independently and remains sitting for a long time without using anything for support.He stands up in his crib while holding onto the bars and he walks around in his crib freely. He can walk when held by both hands and he makes small steps, albeit not stable enough. He has already started moving around independently with a movable support (a special walker). Dylan is very happy when a familiar adult jests him. He would often get sulky when the adult is going away. He produces various sounds. He often expresses his emotions with screams and shouts. Dylan responds to being called by name and to the invitation “Come here”. He is fed with slightly mashed transitional food. Dylan does very well drinking liquids from a cup. If he likes the drink, he holds the cup independently, with both his hands. Dylan cannot yet control his physiological needs and he isn’t potty-trained yet.

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