Wesley

Wesley (1)

Wesley (2)Boy, born July 2013
PRC
Mild cerebral palsy, encephalodysplasia rickets

Wesley is an adorable little boy! When lying on a bed, his little feet will kick up and down ferociously. With the support of things, he can sit for a while. His little hands can make a hugging movement, signaling to the nannies for a hug. He loves to smile and is clingy to the nannies. He can clap his hands and sometimes holds the milk bottle on his own. There is a difference between Wesley’s movements and other children of the same age, perhaps because of the weight of his head. When he sits, he has to lean against a fixed support, and because of the weight of his head, he does not like to sit and always lies on the bed. Wesley can lift his head, turn over and grab toys to play with. He also likes to listen to music. Wesley is not shy with strangers. He likes to be held and will let anyone hold him. He likes to have the older women sing to him, talk to him and feed him. We really hope Wesley finds a home soon!

Connor

Connor (1) Connor (2)Boy, born February 2010
PRC
Mild hearing Loss

Conner is a handsome boy who will be 5 years old in February. He came into care when he was about 1 year old, and was found to have mild hearing loss (30dB) Conner’s file was done when he was 2 years 7 months old. At that time, Conner’s motor skills were on target, and he was imitating words. Conner is active, engaging, and lovable. He enjoys listening to music, and can swing all by himself (at 2 years 7 months old). As often happens, a child with hearing loss can be misdiagnosed as having an intellectual delay. Conner’s medical reflects this misconception. Conner appears to be a typical little guy who happens to have some hearing loss. We do not know if this could be improved with treatment, or hearing aids (if necessary), but he will certainly not receive the help he needs until he comes home! Conner is ready for a family!

Kraig #29-10

SAMSUNGSAMSUNGDOB: 2009
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy- spastic quadriplegia /more visible in the upper limbs, Retinopathy II type – Total detachment of both retinas; delayed development

Kraig is 4 years old. He is considered blind as a result of an injury during birth and surgeons in his home country have determined that his eyes can not be repaired. He is sociable, especially with adults he knows. He walks holding on to one hand of an adult and around an immovable support. He will take several independent steps and it is very likely that the only reason he is not 100% independent with his walking is due to his hesitation to walk since he can not see where he is going. He shows interest in the surrounding environment and listens to its noises. He eats from a spoon and is learning to feed himself. He can get the spoon to his mouth, but is still learning how to scoop food onto the spoon while compensating for his lack of vision. He plays with toys. He babbles and says some syllables spontaneously. He interacts with adults. He follows verbal directions and will play games in which he has to follow verbal instructions (raise your hands, clap your hands, etc). He enjoys music.

Several photos and a detailed video from April 2013 are available.

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.

Seymour L13

boysillouettenophotoBoy, born February 2011:

Diagnosis – lack of protein energy (small height), behavioral disorders. Mental development disorders. Possible Fetal alcohol syndrome. Nightmares;

Seymour has gray eyes and brown hair. The boy is quick-tempered, active, joyful, enjoys playing with Lego and drawing, has speech delay. When he was placed in a foster family, he sometimes used to fell down on the ground and he had poor behavior. Currently his behavior has seriously improved, the boy no longer fells down on the ground and does not cry. The boy needs undivided attention, it is recommended for him to be the only child in the family. When he is together with the foster mother he is obedient, wants all of her attention and love to be focused on him. Previously child was aggressive towards other children (younger half-brother and the girl in the foster family) he hit and bite them. Currently he gets along very well with particular girl. The boy did not develop sibling relationship with his younger half-brother. There were suspicions on possible hearing problems, but this information is false, the foster mother informs that the boy hears better than her, actually he hears very well. He has nightmares in the night, the boy might start crying without even being awake, then the foster mother goes to him, puts her arm on him and the boy calms down. The boy has a language delay – says words, but does not form sentences. He has good language comprehension, understands everything. Attends speech therapist. Attends mainstream kindergarten and behaves well there, follows the taught material, educators have no objections to his work. The boy is willing to help doing different chores, goes to a potty, has no enuresis problems. Adoptive parents should take into account that the boy slowly opens to others, but once the boy has accepted person, then it is for real and lastingly – if he loves, then loves to his full potential. If, for example, the boy does not get the toy he wants, then he can fall down and scream, get hysterical, but with a little cuddling he gets calm. The boy is bland and friendly with others. Comparing to what the boy used to be when placed in the foster family, he bit and would not listen adults, but now the boy has greatly progressed in all areas. The physician of the boy informs – that currently it is difficult to predict further development of the child in the future, possibly, by investing lots of efforts and love to improve the development of the child, there would not be any issues. The boy knows how to put puzzles on a tablet, he likes putting also ordinary puzzles, foster parents encourages the boy to draw to develop his small motor skills. The boy is very reasonable, recognizes digit 1, but if sees, for example, number 20, then knows that it is much more. Knows how does the cat, dog and cow says.

In September 2013, Aren was sent to the hospital where he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. He received a shunt and now he is fine. In May of 2014, he was placed with a foster family. The foster parents love him very much and view him as a part of the family. Aren’s surgery caused his abnormal walking. As of September 2014, he could stand up and walk with his hands holding onto something for support, climb, crawl fast, and could go upstairs and ride the rocking horse. He has a good appetite and sleeps well. He could make the sound of mama and could express goodbye and welcome by gestures.

Benedict

Benedict (1)Benedict (2)Boy, born April 2011
PRC
Muscular Dystrophy

Benedict is an incredibly cute little guy who is 3 years old. He came into care when he was about 1 year old and lives with a foster family. Benedict’s overall development has been very good. He has been healthy, is very active, and easy going. Benedict sometimes falls when he is running. That seems to be the only current visual sign of the muscular dystrophy with which he has been diagnosed. Symptoms usually begin to appear at around this age. Benedict is very social and likes group activities. If he is upset, or angry (not often), he is very easy to redirect. Benedict’s speech is very good; he speaks Mandarin as well as the local dialect. He attends classes at the orphanage, then returns to his foster home. Benedict is very helpful, and very charming…one day in class, he finished the assignment and handed it to his teacher. Before she could respond, Benedict smiled and said, “Good job!”. Benedict needs a family, and a thorough medical exam and tests, to determine the best course of action to help him remain as healthy as possible.

Diagnosis: Atresia of the esophagus – not corrected

Zayne has been through several surgeries in his young life. He was born with VACTER-association. He has had 2 successful cardiac surgeries with a follow-up appointment scheduled in May 2015. He also had two surgeries for reconstruction of the digestive system with output of esophageal stoma and gastric stoma, ligation of two tracheoesophageal fistulas, and pyloroduodenal plastic.

Anderson

AndersonBoy, born January 2012
H-C
Anderson has spin bifida. He has had surgery when he was very young. Aside from that Anderson is continually makes progress.

He is an entertaining little guy who is always trying to do something new and fun. While he has had scooting mastered for quite awhile, he has recently begun to crawl, even pulling his knees forward separately, an impressive task considering his limited mobility. One day, he even tried to stand up in the middle of the pavilion when he saw his friends doing it. He wasn’t able to accomplish this task, but did scoot over for a hug like the other kiddos. He then held out his arms for one of his newly-walking friends and they laughed together as she fell towards him. Anderson is a social little guy and loves to play with his friends. One day, he even spent a good amount of time planting kisses on the cheeks of one of our newest little guys. Anderson can also identify all of his friends by name, and often calls out names as he sees people. He still loves to chatter, and much of it is unclear, but you can easily hear names and several other words. He is also great at repeating what you say to him and we have no doubt that he’ll soon be talking clearly. Of course, Anderson is not always happy, but even when he is upset, he entertains us. Sometimes, he offers a dramatic cry, where he throws himself on the floor and covers up his face. Other times, he simply tilts his head down and glares up at you. However, if you make the same face back at him, he can’t help but smile and is soon giggling. He loves to make people laugh; one day, one of the babies tooted. Anderson and a couple kids commented on this, and then Anderson started making tooting noises with his mouth! He has also been loving the new toys in the Life House. He can be seen laughing at the toddler mirror, pulling a toy train by the string, stacking big Lego blocks, or pulling his stool to the right spot to sit and watch a movie. Anderson is also a great helper; I was handing out nanny gifts one day, and he wanted to help. I gave him a gift and told him who to pass it to. He held it closely to his body as he scooted to the nanny. He is a great little guy with a lot of personality!

Camron

Camron1Boy, born 2012
Williams Syndrome

 

Little Camron has Williams Syndrome.  He loves to dance!  When the music comes on, he jumps up out of his seat to move to the music. A love of music (and sometimes an unusual skill with music, often referred to as “savant”) is common in children with this genetic condition.

 

All of the children he lives with in his house love him. They really cherish the time they get to spend with him.  He is starting to take his first steps, and with help from his friends, he is learning quickly.  Camron is described as an affectionate child.  He is very happy with people he knows, and he obeys directions well.

Cerebral Palsy

Tyran is a sweet little boy who is 3 years old. He has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy which appears to affect his gross motor skills. His report was done when he was about 17 months old, and at that time he was sitting without support, but was unable to crawl or stand. Tyran’s fine motor skills are good, with the exception of transferring an object from one hand to another. He is a very bright little guy, whose receptive speech is very good. He was able at 17 months to say “nainai” (grandmother) but it was not very clear. Tyran lives with a foster grandmother who loves him, but he does not appear to have access to any needed therapies. Tyran needs a family not only to love him as he grows, but can provide the therapies he will need to reach his full potential.

Austin #22-1

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOBoy, age 1
Diagnosis: CP

Austin’s medical reports indicate that he has spastic CP in all 4 limbs. Videos were taken of him in February 2015 that show him standing while holding the hands of a caregiver and taking steps to walk across the room. He is also using his arms and hands to reach for toys, hold them and manipulate them. He receives massages and therapy daily. The orphanage director (who is a pediatrician) reports that he can move around in a walker, pronounces a few words, and eats from a spoon. She believes that his development will follow a normal course.

Photos and videos from Feb 2015 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.

PRC
mild Cerebral palsy

Sutter is a handsome boy who came into care when he turned 1 year old, and was found to have CP, affecting his left side. Sutter has progressed a lot, and is able to walk some distance unassisted, although his feet turn in a bit. (Perhaps he would benefit from some bracing?) He can walk up stairs without help from a nanny. He uses a walker for long distances. His left hand is weaker than his right. Sutter’s speech is good, although they sometimes have to remind him to speak more clearly. He is a bright boy, who always tries his best. Sutter comes to the orphanage rehab center every weekday, then lives with a foster family nights and weekends. He is very attached to them, and is able to bond well. Sutter can be shy when first meeting new people. He enjoys playing with the neighborhood kids around his foster home, and likes to ride a bike. Sutter is a great little guy, who needs some physical therapy and, most of all, a family.

He is typically a good natured little boy, who enjoys playing with the other kids. The one thing that will upset him is if another child takes his toy. Jamieson has bladder and bowel control. His language skills are a bit behind his peers. He is considered to be a bit shy, is able to pick up new skills quickly,and is a very kind child. Jamieson’s all time favorite thing to do is go to an amusement park! So, buy those season passes, and bring him home….he has rides to conquer!

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!

Jesse

new jesseJesse

Boy, born January 2010
PRCjesse on tricycle Blind

Three year old Jesse is a beautiful little boy who resides a specialized foster care home for blind and visually impaired children. It is small home with only five children and the carers are specially trained to work with blind children. He is being taught life skills and self-care that will help him prepare for adoption and eventually independent living.

While this is a great opportunity, life has not been so fortunate for Jesse. He was abandoned at the gates of his orphanage when he was 9 months old. 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.

Videos available for inquiring families.

Milo #

MiloBoy, born August 2012Milo
Hydrocephalus, nystagmus, strabismus

UPDATE April 2015
He is pretty healthy. Had bronchiolitis and pneumonia. It is good that he did not have any problems with shunt after placement in newborn period. Prognosis depends how well hydrocephalus was advanced. In his case it will be no problems since he did not have complications in the first months. That he did not have any shunt infection that required surgical revision which is a very good sign. If there is no initial delay most of the cases have a totally normal life. There is no history of seizure disorder. He is small for his age, but we do not know history of the parents. There is a foot abnormality mentioned, but is nothing it does not restrict his normal activity. I do not see any ophtalmological evaluation for his nystagmus. Crossed eyes are not a big problem.

UPDATE March 2015:
Milo has excellent qualities. He is a very clever child. He made his first steps at the age of 10 months. At the age of 12 months he started to speak complete sentences …  The child only problem is the strabismus, but it can be corrected in the USA. After his birth it was made an intervention for removal of pressure in the brain in the best and most modern hospital in country. The operation was successful, no need for a second for now.
The agency has several pictures and videos available.

Toby

Toby - croppedBoy, born 2010

Cerebral dysplasia

Toby is an adorable little boy who is 2 years old. He came into care as an infant. Toby is developing on target, with no delays when compared to his peers. Toby is a very out-going and active little guy, who has no fear of strangers. At this point, he considers everyone to be a potential playmate!

Toby had a heart scan, which showed no problems. He had a CT scan of his brain, which showed the left hemisphere was reduced, and there was evidence of a past brain injury (prenatal or during birth). Toby does not have seizures, does not show any developmental delays, and is happy and healthy (other than usual childhood illnesses). The brain of a child is wonderful that way…it can compensate for many issues it may have! He loves to play, and is a very active little boy who is “full of curiosity”, according to the nannies! His favorite toys are balls…soccer, baseball, tennis…which will he choose? Toby is a wonderful little boy, who will be such a joy to have in your family!

Alec

Alec April 2014Alec RRBoy, born May 2011
PRC
anophthalmia, developmental delays

Alec is a beautiful darling little boy.

Alec was born with one missing eye, a condition typically corrected with a prosthetic eye. He has good vision in his one eye and does not appear to have hearing loss. Alec has developmental delays that may be due to brain damage or brain malformation, in addition to lack of stimulation in his first year of life. Alec was in the care of An Orphan’s Wish for over a year and then was transferred to Little Flower. In the care of these loving organizations he has made some progress in his physical strength and development, but he is still severely delayed. Alec can sit up and can make eye contact, but he is not interested in toys. Alec loves being held and responds to tickles and cuddles. He currently does not attempt to communicate verbally but he laughs and coos. Alec also has feeding issues. Alec needs the unconditional love of a family devoted to give him access to all the therapies and early intervention services that he needs to reach his full potential. These services are not available for him in China. He needs to come home to a family who will see the value of this little boy and shower him with the love that he deserves.

For more information, photos, or questions about Alec, please contact Nathalie.

Cerebral Palsy

Meet 4 year old, Lars! He is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Remember…CP is not degenerative- it does not get worse and therapy can be very helpful! Lars began rehabilitation treatment at the age of 9 months. At age 3, he was able to stand alone and walk without help, though his left heel did not touch the ground and his left upper limb is affected as well. He recently started preschool in the center and his self-awareness has increased. He can hold a spoon to eat, can wave goodbye to people, and recognizes familiar people and objects. Lars’ language ability was poor, so he started speech training to practice his pronunciation. Now he has good comprehension, can speak simple words, but he cannot talk clearly. His expressive language is not very good and he has difficulty with fine motor skills. Lars is outgoing and has a ready smile. He likes familiar people and enjoys cuddling. He likes soft music and enjoys the music lessons at school. Lars likes taking walks outside and playing with balls on the playground.
