He readily enters into play interactions with adults. He spontaneously pronounces syllables and other combinations of sounds. He eats well, with appetite. While bathed, he’s calm. His sleep is calm and long. He sucks his thumb while sleeping.

He eats blended food from a spoon.

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!

Artemis

ArtemisBoy, 4 years old

Delays in development

Listed April 2015

Artemis is a sweet little guy with delays in development. He came to us at two years old severely malnourished, but is now gaining weight and showing definite signs of progress. This sweetie is learning to sit up and is getting quite stable when he uses his hands for support. He has even started using one hand to play with a toy while he is sitting.

Artemis also loves to move his legs around and can often be seen laying on his back holding his feet in the air or wiggling his legs and arms. Artemis is a picky eater and does better if his food is soft. It is possible that Artemis has some hearing loss as well. We have not been able to have this officially tested, but he often does not respond to noises around him. He does, however, love to watch and observe his world. He is great at making eye contact and loves staring at and touching faces. His smile is beautiful and he loves to be tickled and held.

Max appears to be interested in his environment, but his caretakers are wondering if he has impaired vision. He smiles at others and seems to be making eye contact.

Progressive Muscular Dystrophy

Emerson is a shy, quiet, and lovely boy. Though he’s fairly introverted around strangers, once he’s in a familiar environment he’s quite lively! He loves playing with blocks, and even by himself he will be very quiet and focused when building with them! Emerson was initially diagnosed with liver
Emerson (3) dysfunction, but when it didn’t respond to treatment they tested for muscular dystrophy (elevated liver enzymes are often found in children with MD from the muscle breakdown as opposed to a liver dysfunction), and found he was positive. Currently they don’t see any symptoms of the muscular dystrophy- he can sit, crawl, and walk while holding onto something! Emerson also demonstrates good fine motor skills; he can scribble with a pen, pick up small objects with his thumb and forefinger, stack two blocks, and turn the pages of a book. When looking at books he loves to point out the pictures. He can feed himself finger foods, and cooperates when getting dressed. He understands simple instructions, like being told to pick up his toys, and can point out his eyes and nose when ask. Emerson is able to imitate simple words like “mom” and “dad.” This sweet boy is waiting for his family. Are you the ones he waits for?

Jamieson updateJamieson (1)Boy, born March 2011
PRC
repaired meningomyelocele, possible mild scoliosis

Listed: Feb 11, 2015

Jamieson is a bright, smiley four year old boy who is considered very bright and a favorite of the nannies in his orphanage. He came into care as an infant and was diagnosed with a myelomeningocele (a birth defect in which a portion of the spinal cord and its covering, the meninges, protrudes from the back) and myelosyringosis (cavities in the spinal column). At one year of age he had a successful surgery to repair his spinal cord defects. He was walking even before his surgery and continues to be an energetic, active boy fond of games and playing with toys. He can talk, run, jump, feed and dress himself, and often volunteers to help with chores. Jamieson sleeps well, has a great appetite, and is fully potty trained. At his last update he was almost 40 inches and weighed 35 pounds. Although his file states that he had delayed mental development, the orphanage explains that this was due to language delay when he didn’t respond to the doctor examining him. Jamieson no longer carries this diagnosis and the nannies say he is on target for his age and is normal in his development. This sweet boy is ready for a forever family to make him their own!

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!

He is described as a very sweet boy who responds to his name, follows instructions, knows familiar people and has appropriate stranger anxiety.
Additional photos, videos, medical reports, and MRI results are available.  Please contact the agency for more information.
Listed: Apr 3, 2015
Update 2015: Our in-country representative visited William and was impressed with his tremendous progress. William can walk with assistance and with a walker, interacts with others and speaks in short sentences. He knows all of his caretakers and loves to play. William used to be terrified of strangers, but now is comfortable around them, smiling and talking and seeking their attention. He is potty-trained and can feed himself. William would thrive in a loving family.

From a family who met William in Sept 2015: Each time I saw William he gave me a huge grin. One day a nanny was helping him walk all around the courtyard using his walker and William was beaming. He also thoroughly enjoyed watching cartoons and music videos with his group, even getting up from his chair several times to stand, dance, and clap to the music, again with a big smile on his face.

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.

Post op heart defect, Post-op Cleft lip, post op hernia, cleft palate

Phillip is an outgoing, active and independent 3.5 year old boy. He was born with a heart defect (had corrective surgery at 8 months), a hernia (repaired when he was 14 months) and a cleft lip and palate (his lip was repaired when he was 15 months). He is doing great now, with normal physical and intellectual development. Phillip loves to participate in all kinds of activities such as playing with toys, helping other children and sitting on his teacher’s lap. He can go up and down the stairs and knows how to feed and dress himself. Phillip’s fine motor skills are good but he needs to build up his strength in his arms and hands. Phillip can say many simple words and can recite simple poems and songs. He already knows how to count and can name many body part and foods! Isn’t he the son you’ve been searching for?

Hutton

HuttonBoy, born September 2011
PRC
Repaired facial cleft

Hutton is 2 and a half and loves to ride on his toy horse. He was born with a facial cleft, but had surgery for it and it has been repaired. He can hear his caregivers when they speak to him, follow their voices, and look for toys when they are hidden. Hutton’s caregivers think that he is able to fully hear. He is able to speak and identify objects that are asked. Hutton can call for his caregivers and identify them by name. His facial cleft has had no affect on his eating or drinking! Hutton can identify all his body parts and his caregivers think that he is very smart! He knows his animals, colors, and fruits and veggies!
