Ivey

31209225022 IveyGuardian AngelGirl, born 2001
Arthrogryposis

 

From a family that met her early 2014: She is SO smart and funny and has the best sense of humor. When we were in there, she asked the staff if it was possible to get a family for herself, but they felt the answer would be no- because no one would want someone as badly disabled as she was. She can do nothing for herself physically, her limbs are twisted very badly, and unlike many of the others, she cannot feed herself. She lies on the couch and another older girl, also disabled, comes and feeds her. But she is amazing- despite her lack of formal schooling, she has memorized poems, and such. But she is also a fantastic conversationalist. She reads, can write some (limitations of her arms), has an incredible memory and method of delivery of things she has memorized (she also sang for us). She loves the color yellow and loves dressing up to feel pretty. She also loves to watch cartoons, but is ok with “serious dramas” on tv too lol! she’s spending her days on a couch, wishing for a family she fears will never come because her limbs are twisted and she cannot be “useful.” I am praying with all my heart that there is a family out there that recognizes that a person’s worth is not measured by what they can physically do- and will cross the ocean to call her daughter, because I truly believe she would be an incredible addition to a family. She’s spunky and overcame her hesitation about potential rejection, in order to ask me if I would please see if I could find her a family.

Alice

AliceGirl, born December 2003
PRC
Developmental Delay

Alice is 9 years old and is very caring and sweet. She is diagnosed as being developmentally delayed, but the volunteer at camp found her to be a very smart girl who loves chatting about everything around her!!

What Alice’s camp counselor had to say:
“I am writing about my girl Alice whom I worked with at camp for a week. Alice is such a great girl! She is 9 years old, loves crafts, singing and dancing in front of people in her own way, and taking care of others. As I watched her, I noticed how kind and sweet she is. Alice is so kind to others, especially children who are with her, or those she lives with at her orphanage.

One of the best moments I had with Alice was when we read our goodbye letters to each other. She seems so tough and tried not to show her emotions to me all week, but when I read my letter to her and she read her letter to me, she started crying. She cried for a very long time, which made me emotional and she turned and looked at me and whispered “I love you.” It broke my heart, but made me so thankful to have this sweet girl in my life that I didn’t realize I needed, until God placed her there.

Alice looks a little small for her age, but has no physical needs. She is very active, talks a lot once she gets to know you, and like I have said before, LOVES kids! It is so neat to see her take care of those around her, make sure they have enough to drink, to eat, and that they are clothed well. Any family would be so blessed to have Alice in their life and I hope you consider adopting her!! She is so amazing and I’m blessed to know her and call her my little sister.”

Developmental delays, possible mild Thalssemia

Melody is diagnosed with moderate delayed mental development and Hypochromic microcytic anemia- possible thalassemia or iron deficiency anemia. Her file mentions beta thalassemia minor, but it does not appear that she receives regular transfusions at this time. She may have thalassemia intermedia. A prospective family should be prepare for any form of thalassemia. www.choosingthalassemia dot blogspot dot com is an excellent resource to learn more about thalassemia. Melody does not have good motion development and her mental development is delayed. A prospective family should be prepared for mild CP as well, even though that is not on the list of diagnoses. She was admitted to the orphanage at 5 years old. At that time, she could sit, stand, and walk alone. After she got comfortable with her new surroundings, she was polite and could get along well with people. At the age of 6 years, she could go up and down stairs holding onto something and could pick her favorite toys, but her language development was delayed. She could greet adults positively. At the age of 8 years, her motion of both upper limbs was not good and her walking position was not normal. She could wash her hands, could put on and take off her clothes independently, and could button and unbutton. She is now receiving special education in the center, can recognize common colors and shapes, can participate in some simple activities with kids, and can read some short children’s songs with teachers and friends, but she cannot read alone. Melody is gentle and shy, can get along well with others, and is very happy when playing games with children. Occasionally she is obstinate. She likes to share toys and food with the other children.

Molly and Marcey #

Molly MarceyAge: 10
Diagnosis: Cerebral Palsy- quadriplegic

The girls were raised by their birth family until they were 3 years old. They both have CP that effects all 4 limbs. Both girls recently had tendon release surgery to extend range of motion in their knees. Both girls suffer from muscle spasms common in children with CP, which impacts their motor skills.

Both girls can independently roll over and sit in a supported seat controlling their head and upper body with proper supports for their legs. Both girls will engage and interact with other children and caregivers by following movement with their eyes/head, reacting with laughter or spontaneous sounds and reaching for toys. Both girls have good hand/eye coordination and can reach for and grasp a toy/object and move it to their mouth. The girls are placed in adaptive chairs in the main group area so that they can observe and interact with other children, which they enjoy. The recommendation for their future care includes physical therapy to address joint contractures and prevent future ones, medication/treatment options to address muscle spasms, speech therapy and exposure to other peer models.

 

Because we only have these children’s file for a short time, they will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for them.

Isolde

Isolde2Isolde3-2-croppedGirl, born 1999
Cerebral palsy
Additional information coming soon

Please help find her family before she ages out (at 16)!

Isolde is described as creative and eager.

From someone who met her:  Isolde is lovely. First I thought she couldn’t speak when I was there in the summer, ’cause it took her about 3 weeks before she would even say ‘thank you.’ But then she started to talk more and more. I started to do walking exercises with her. She could hardly stand on her legs by then. I practiced with her everyday and what I noticed is that she is a fighter. She worked so hard. She worked until she was bathing in sweat and totally tired. She wouldn’t stop before her legs couldn’t hold her anymore. Everyday we could walk further. First just one side of the building and in the end we could easily walk 2 rounds around the building. Though she needs quite some support. After the summer they gave her PT and she was walking way better when I was there in November again. She could walk with one hand then, which was totally impossible for her in the summer. And again she was fighting to learn more, but being inside the building all day would limit her. She is pretty smart too, I played games with her. One of the games was creating a ‘picture’ with little pins, just copying the example. The physical part of the game was the hardest. So we trained to pick up the pins, put them in and get them out. She is so wonderful! She smiles so sweet. She just stole my hard. In the beginning of the summer she had hardly any muscles in her leg and she was extremely skinny, but during the summer she got more muscles from exercising and in November she was doing even better. I’m so proud of this girl. If she will get the chance, she will reach so much, because she will fight for it. She would do so well in a family, because a family can give her the chance that she deserves and I know she will make the most of it.

Isolde’s best friend is Duane; who is also listed for adoption.

Julia has such happy, giant brown eyes and a smile that lights up a room!

 

From a family who met her in December 2013:  “I have to shout for this precious girl for a moment…we are here now and we see her everyday at the orphanage. The pictures don’t do this dear one justice at all; she is gorgeous and so very sweet!!! She can’t walk on her own (she can if she is assisted!) but she is still quick! She comes over to me everyday and wants in my lap, to shake my hand, or give me a hug. She has SO much potential and I can just see the hunger for love and a Mothers touch in her eyes. She has been overlooked long enough!!! She is darling….truly!! ”

Developmental delays

 

Evelyn is a pretty little girl who was abandoned at age 5 in a rural area. She had received no education and therefore is now a 10 year old trying to catch up with her peers. She is one of the favorites at the center. Several nannies take her home with them so she can experience family life. In the center she is in a room with 4 girls and 1 nanny. She is very shy especially around strangers. Evelyn attends the special class at school and is now able to count to 100 and on her own told me “thank you” although they say she does not understand many words in English. Her writing is excellent. She also loves to sing and is very talented.

Evelyn’s favorite foods are apples and chicken wings. Her favorite color is pink. She truly wants to be adopted and go to America….QUICKLY! (as stated in her own words!)

Mild dysgnosia

 

Her paperwork is old, from 2009 and it states:
For her better growth, we sent her into foster family. During this period, she become more outgoing, and will not afraid of people, and can call people. In kindergarten, nannies teach her dance, she study seriously, nannies and children all liked her very much.  She is a beautiful girl.
From a volunteer who met her:
Joy is getting better and better since coming [here]. With enough teaching and training we hope Joy will be able to live independently eventually. Joy was hit when she was little. We only spent several hours with her, but she wasn’t aggressive when we were there. She actually was quite caring. She can cook and do everything for herself. School is very hard for her and when she can’t do her school work it makes her very sad. Joy only lived with [the volunteer] for a few months, but she had improved greatly in that time. Her behavior was much better. She isn’t sure about her being able to live independently.

Carmen #1-9

DOB: 2002
Diagnosis: delays in all aspects of development

Carmen has spent most of her life in a family environment. She was raised by her birth mother until she was 3 years old. At that time, she was placed in a mental institution where the children are generally well cared for. At the age of 5, she was placed with a foster family. The family is missionaries and she lived with them for over 2 years, at which point they had to return to their home country. She moved from their home to another foster home, where she lived for over a year. At the age of 8, she was placed in a group home style orphanage, where she lives today. She was placed in the group home because her foster mother moved to a different town and could not take Carmen with her. The foster mother still visits her when she is able and takes her for weekend trips. She is well loved by therapists and others who’ve been involved in her care over the years and they’ve advocated for her to help her find a forever family.

Carmen is considered delayed in all aspects of her development. She feeds herself and drinks from an open cup. She walks and can go up and down steps independently. She cooperates with all self-help skills such as dressing and undressing. She maintains eye contact and responds to her name. Her speech is delayed, but she understands what is said to her. When she sees something she likes or wants, she will smile and clap. She interacts with the other children and participates in games and group activities. She is making progress in all aspects of her development. Her report has not been updated in over a year, so we are working to get information on her current developmental progress.

Devora

Devora

Girl, born February 2002
Mental delay, HIV

Creative, eager

Devora is a real sweetie pie! She loves to have her head rubbed, and enjoys being tickled. Her smiles and giggles are absolutely heart melting! She does not talk, stand, or walk as far as I could tell. Her idea of mischief is to kick off a shoe or hide her arm inside of her sweatshirt, and she’d giggle as these things were corrected.

She seemed to find it very amusing when I would ask her where her hand was, then say “There it is” as I removed it from inside of her shirt. This became a game, and she would giggle as she hid her arm again as soon as I removed it from inside of her shirt. She is a very content little girl, and something as simple as a spiky ball could put a big grin on her face. I never saw her upset as long as she was allowed to play in either her bed or her chair, but she would become upset if I tried to move her to a more unfamiliar area to play.

Valerie

Girl, Born February 2004

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!  Valerie has been transferred.

Isn’t Valerie cute??  She is diagnosed with hypothyroidism.  She also has strabismus (crossed/lazy eyes).    She is diagnosed with developmental delay, and shows many of the facial characteristics of a child with FAS (Fetal Alcohol syndrome).  But she is a darling girl, very active, loving and affectionate!   She is facing the institution soon.  I hope a family is out there waiting just for her!

If you are unfamiliar with FAS, please spend some time researching this condition.  Just as with Down syndrome, FAS and FAE have a wide variation of effects on each child, both medically, physically, and cognitively.   This is typically dependent on how long during the pregnancy the mother consumed alcohol, and of course, how much.   There is no way to know this ahead of time.

 

Donations will be accepted for this child when further information is received.
