Liam

Boy, born 2008
PRC
Down syndrome, Heart Disease

This playful, adventurous, sweet boy is Liam! He is 8 years old and will absolutely steal your heart. Liam can be quiet and introverted at times, but he is generally a very friendly kid! Whenever volunteers come to the orphanage he cannot wait to take pictures with them. He seems to have an eye for photography – he loves being in pictures and taking pictures of others. He especially likes to come up with funny poses! He can play games cooperatively with other kids, and he has a lot of fun building all kinds of structures out of blocks. Liam likes to be creative and has quite the imagination!

Liam had the opportunity to visit the US as part of the Winter 2016 China Hosting Program! He spent 3 weeks playing, learning, and laughing with his host family. Here is what they shared with us:

“Liam is a very happy little guy with the most contagious giggles you’ll ever hear, and I have no doubt that he’ll bring much joy to his forever family.  He is a very energetic and active little guy who enjoys playing outside (at the playground, swinging and going down the slide are favorite activities), but he also is great at entertaining himself indoors by looking at books or “writing” (making marks on paper). He has a great imagination and especially loves to pretend to cook! He plays well with others but just as often seems to enjoy playing independently.

Liam also has a bit of a mischievous streak — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but he does sometimes need help redirecting some of his energy to a more positive activity. I did see improvement throughout his time here with his ability to be redirected, and discipline-wise, short “time-ins” where we sat together quietly on the floor seemed to be most effective.

Liam LOVES to eat…And would eat ALL the time if I let him. He is not picky at all; he’s eaten everything I’ve given him — fruit, veggies, yogurt, meat, pasta, etc. The hardest thing for him is being done with a meal/snack — even if he has had plenty to eat, he still wants more. This does seem to be getting a bit better, though.

It was fun having Liam here & seeing him come out of his shell! He definitely keeps me on my toes because he is very active/into everything, but he has a great imagination that has been fun to watch. He also really has done a GREAT job transitioning into family life/life in the US.”

You can see more photos and videos from Liam’s time in the US on his advocacy page.

Liam’s nannies tell us he is learning self-care skills. His recent health has been good, and he is not currently showing any symptoms of heart disease. Could you be Liam’s forever family?

Caroline

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome; CHD

Listed: August 2017

Caroline is a beautiful little girl who turned four years old this summer. There is something missing though. There’s no gleam in her eyes and no smile on her face. Caroline needs a family to pour love into her and turn that sad little face into a happy one. Caroline has went through a lot without a family by her side- more than any child should have to. Caroline was born with Down syndrome and congenital heart defects – ASD, VSD, and PDA. In July of 2016, she had her ASD and VSD repaired and her PDA was closed.

Caroline is introverted, gentle, and will smile when she is feeling well. She likes listening to music. Caroline is afraid of strangers, but she does know the caretakers who take care of her and she is close with them. Caroline can sit alone and she likes sitting in the walker and moving around. She can call mom and dad and responds well to sounds around her. She is good at imitating adult’s actions and knows how to ask for objects. She can feed herself biscuits and can hold a bottle to drink milk. She is not a picky eater and her favorite foods are eggs, noodles, cakes, and steamed buns. Caroline likes when her caretakers hug and interact with her, but she doesn’t get as much attention and time to do things kids her age should be doing since she lives in a room full of children of various ages in cribs side by side. It’s our hope that she will find a family soon!

Caroline’s current agency is offering a $5000 grant towards her adoption fees.

Wendel

Boy, born 2015

Listed: August 2017

Wendel is cute as a button! His happy, bright personality shines through in all of his photos and videos. Wendell does not have formal language skills yet, but he enjoys communicating with others through smiles, hugs, and some simple words, such as goodbye and coming. He recognizes his name when it is called and recognizes familiar people. He has a good understanding of social interactions and can show his emotions. Wendel can follow simple commands and has strong imitating ability.

The orphanage describes him as handsome, active, and extroverted. Wendel enjoys listening to music, playing games, and playing with toys, especially rag dolls. He gets along well with others and enjoys spending time with his peers. Wendell has quick reactions and is inquisitive; if an object is hidden he will search for it rather than be upset that it is gone. Wendel can crawl quickly and is beginning to walk. He can stand and walk with someone’s help or by holding onto a railing. He has good coordination and his motor skills are developing. The orphanage says that Wendel has strong adaptability. He does not yet have bowel or bladder control.

Wendel was abandoned at one month old. He was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and two congenital heart defects, an atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale. The orphanage reports that both heart conditions have healed themselves and have sent tests and images from February, 2017 to show this. Wendel is also listed as having the cytomegalovirus (CMV) and a milk protein allergy. The orphanage says that he was never affected by CMV and that this is a mistake. We are unclear whether the listed milk protein allergy means that he is lactose intolerant or that he has PKU as he has certain PKU physical qualities and is getting low-protein milk powder and low-protein rice powder, but the orphanage denies that he has PKU. The agency has requested a PKU test to be sure.

In order to help Wendel find a family, his current agency is waiving their entire agency fee.

Adorable Wendel needs a family to bring him home. Can that family be yours?

Freddie

Boy, born 2012
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: June 2017

Freddie was abandoned at 7 months old. He is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and funnel chest. Freddie’s medical information is 3 years old, but we do have some recent information from his orphanage. While we are working to get an updated medical for him, the recent report, photos, and videos can give a good picture of Freddie’s development. Neither the medical or report indicate any significant delays with his physical development.

Freddie’s videos show him walking steadily, kicking a ball, and playing with blocks, indicating that his gross and fine motor skills appear to be on target. Freddie reportedly can understand simple language and is seen following directions in his videos, though we are not sure if Freddie is able to speak. Freddie attends school in the orphanage, but there is no language training available which inhibits his ability to learn to speak. His intelligence is slightly delayed compared to his peers, but he could potentially make progress with the proper services and interventions.

Freddie is said to be outgoing, active, and loving. The orphanage reports that he can make new friends easily and he is seen playing with other children in his videos. Freddie has a sweet smile and pleasant demeanor. He has some self-care ability; he reportedly can do simple tasks alone, but needs assistance with other tasks such as taking a shower. The orphanage reports that Freddie can have bowel and bladder control, but he does not at this time.

Freddie needs the love and support of a family to help him thrive. Could Freddie find a home with your family?
