Zack Qi

Boy, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, CHD

Zack, 3.5, is described as handsome, active, and adorable. Zack loves music and enjoys singing and dancing. He can be shy, but he gets along very well with his peers and teachers and warmly greets those familiar to him. Zack adapts well to new situations. He is able to feed himself, get dressed and undressed without assistance, use the bathroom alone, and wash his hands without help. Zack goes to school in the orphanage. He is in class with other children with Down Syndrome, in which he is considered above average. He has some language skills, good fine and gross motor skills, and he knows his numbers, colors, and sizes. Zack can speak common characters, words, and short sentences, though he has poor pronunciation. He can walk, use the stairs, and jump by himself. He enjoys playing catch and playing with balls.

Zack was abandoned at 6 months old. He was born with Down Syndrome and patent ductus arteriosus, a congenital heart defect. We do not have any information at this time on treatment Zack has received for his heart condition, but we have asked for more information about this.

In order to help Zack find a family, we are waiving our entire agency fee. Zack’s family will be responsible for the costs of their homestudy, post-placement reports, dossier authentication, China’s dossier log-in and translation fees, USCIS fees, orphanage donation and travel expenses. Our staff will assist Zack’s family with grant applications and fundraising. The $13,000 federal Adoption Tax Credit may also be beneficial to Zack’s family.

Zack’s bright, goofy personality shines through in his photos. Could he brighten up your family?

Lois

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital Heart Defect (VSD)

Lois is an adorable little girl who will soon be turning two years old! From her pictures, you can see that Lois was in complete failure to thrive mode — just look at her now…the changes in her looks alone are simply amazing! Lois is said to really enjoy sitting in the walker or in the red skate cart. She has a ready smile that she can’t wait to show her forever family. Lois gets along well with others and is said to be active. She has a good appetite and is a sound sleeper. Lois has been in the healing home since August of 2016.  It is reported that Lois has grown beautifully. Her developmental delays seem to be very significant. She is not interactive with others, including her nannies. She is making sounds, but not words. There are still many unknowns about the extent of her delays. Agency staff met Lois in November of 2016. It is clear she has grown and changed significantly in the past year. We can’t wait to see the amazing changes she’d make in a forever family with the love and supports she needs to continue thriving!

There is a $5,000 agency grant currently available from the agency who currently has her file.

Wendel

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome, CHD

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?

Eddie

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Wide-eyed Eddie is curious and explores by rolling over in his crib and play mat. Eddie was born with Downs Syndrome and a heart defect. He was abandoned as a frail, thin baby who struggled with digestive issues. Under the loving care of his nannies, his eating has improved and he is clearly more comfortable and putting on a little chub. He sweetly comforts himself by sucking his thumb. At the age of a year and a half, Eddie’s developmental delays are fairly significant so it’s hard to predict how much he will catch up with the attention and services he needs.

There’s no doubt this little cutie will benefit greatly from joining a family!

Stella is making sounds, but not saying any clear words yet. Under the loving care of a family, Stella will surely blossom!

Auden

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Auden finally has a file, which means he finally has a chance to have a family of his own! In September of 2015, the agency posted about a little baby boy with down syndrome who we met while on an advocacy trip. His situation was very grave due to a digestion issue and staff who weren’t sure what more to do for him. They honestly weren’t sure how much time he had left. They got in touch with some wonderful people who got him into one of their healing homes. Three months later, they posted a picture of this baby they are calling Auden. The changes moved are amazing!

Auden is now two years old and not only is he adorable, but he is thriving! This cutie has an amazing story, but this is just the beginning. There just has to be an awesome family out there for this little one. Please help spread the word about him so he can soon be in the arms of his family…his forever family!

Auden has a $5,000 agency grant available, with his current agency.

Nan

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Nan is a sweet peanut! As of her spring 2017 update, Nan was able to sit, crawl, and stand a little, while holding onto the railing. Nan can say simple words like ‘mama’ and ‘nannan.’ She plays well with other children and will smile at someone she knows. When people talk to her, she is very happy. She sometimes takes toys from the other children. If they start to cry, she will join in and cry along with them. Nan loves to look at colorful picture books and knows how to turn the pages, one by one. Her caretakers are working with her on identifying body parts. Nan cries loudly when upset, but the staff can comfort her by talking to her gently. She is scared of strangers and new places and will look for familiar caretakers when in that situation. She likes when her caretakers kiss her cheeks or give her snacks. Nan can hold her own bottle but does eat other foods, such as cut-up meat, soup, sliced fruits, small pieces of bread, etc. She is not a picky eater and she really likes bread and steamed buns. Nan is living in the orphanage. She sleeps well, but does move around a lot at night. The staff will sometimes need to re-cover her or will just give her two blankets. Nan has a cheerful personality and loves being outdoors and playing with toys that make sounds. We’re hoping Nan’s family sees her soon so she is able to come home while she is still so young.

There is a $5000 agency grant available, through Nan’s current agency.  They also have video and additional pictures.

Branden L41

Boy, born summer 2012

Down syndrome, speech delay

 

Branden has bluish-green eyes and light brown hair. He is sunny, inquisitive and very active boy, who likes attention and communication. Branden was placed in an out-of-family care institution (from foster care) at the age of 3 years and 5 months. The adaptation period in the orphanage was successful, the boy was friendly and cute, the attention span was sustainable, physical development corresponded the age, language development was delayed.

Branden’s overall development progresses well, although the development of language is without change, attention span is less sustainable, he is more careless. General movements are free, the boy freely moves, runs, climbs up and down the stairs. Branden is very active and inquisitive. He shows interest in the surrounding area and events, as well as activities of adults and other children. He is friendly and builds contact gladly also with less known people. The boy is interested in toys, but often the interest is unstable, he plays a little bit and then looks for another toy. Needs to be motivated to continue and finish the started play. The boy tends to be inattentive, has unstable attention, wants to rush everything. Language development lags behind age norms and progress is very minimal. The boy responds to his name, he comprehends and reacts adequately on daily instructions. Uses few words in short form in his active speech, but in most occasions uses inarticulate exclamation sounds, vocabulary has not progressed. Passive (receptive) vocabulary is wider. Keenly observes and leafs through picture books, but he cannot show the asked object or name it himself. Self-skills well trained, independent eating and drinking, knows his cot, is able to dress himself partially, can undress, is not yet able to fasten clothes with buttons or zips, goes to toilet after reminder, sometimes goes independently.

Branden does have older siblings, but they have been legally separated by the courts.

Lilly

Girl, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

Every once in awhile you come across a file with the sweetest, heartfelt expressions written about a child. That’s what I found in the file of precious Lilly, who recently turned one. Lilly’s file said things like “She would smile sweetly, just like a little angel without wings,” “She is very cute and favorable,” and “When someone had fun with her, she will smile innocently. It showed that she is a girl with good personality.” It is clear this baby is not only sweet, but adored!

Lilly is a good eater and sleeper and she really likes taking baths. She loves to play in the water and kicking the water with her feet makes her squeal with excitement. Lilly was turning from side to side when her file was prepared and she is receiving physical therapy. The staff believes she is going to continue to surprise them. It is our hope that Lilly can come home to her family before her 2nd birthday!

There is a $5,000 grant available through her current agency.

Freddie

Boy, born 2012
PRC
Down syndrome

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?

Blythe is a beautiful one-year-old baby girl. Blythe is a quiet and easy-going baby. She loves when adults talk to and smile at her. When someone is talking to her, she smiles and listens so well that it seems like she understands exactly what you are saying- she just might have excellent receptive language skills!

She is very observant and good at following objects, as well as holding onto objects, including her feet- she loves to play with them. Blythe is a sensible, loving, well-behaved, and happy little girl who likes to play a little before putting herself to sleep. We bet she’d love being rocked by a mom or dad, listening to stories and songs told and sung just to her. Blythe was born with down syndrome and a heart defect- endocardial cushion defect (complete).

Carlie

Girl, born 2013

Down syndrome

Recently turned 4-year-old Carlie is an adorable little girl who was born with down syndrome. Carlie love colorful toys and any activities outdoors! Carlie was found in a flower bed under a bridge and came into care at approximately 4-5 months of age. At that time, she could hold her head up and put her hands in front of her eyes to look and play. By one year of age, she could babble, laugh when playing with others, sit with support, roll over, and move toys from one hand to the other. At two, she could sit independently, crawl, and turn the pages of books. She also became very attached to her caregiver. By three, she could stand while holding onto something and put objects into a cup and take them out. Carlie is currently attending a school inside her orphanage. She gets along well with the other children, but is quiet and uses words like aunt and teacher, but not clearly. As of fall, she was not yet potty trained. When Carlie meets new people, she will wave her hands and blow them a kiss- a little charmer! When others are showing her attention, she will smile and approach them on her own. She is a well-behaved little girl.

Azalea

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Precious Azalea is a 1.5-year-old baby girl who is quiet and introverted. She likes it when her foster parents hold her outside while on a walk. Azalea loves to babble to greet familiar faces and voices, but is afraid of strangers. She also loves the sounds of bells and music. If she is crying and music is turned on, she will stop crying immediately and look around for the source of the sound with her eyes open wide. Azalea does not like to take a bath-she will scream before even getting wet. Her foster parents have to be patient and comfort her until she adjusts to the bath. Azalea’s file was completed when she was 8 months old- at that time she was not able to crawl or stand, but could sit with support. She was using facial expressions and babbling to respond to her foster family talking to her. Azalea responds to her name being called, looks for the source of the sound, and recognizes familiar people and objects.  She is newly listed and we’re hoping her family sees her and can bring her home while she’s still so young!

Sheena is the sweetest four-year-old girl around! Agency staff have met her and said that she is very smart and pleasant. Sheena is also a favorite of her caretakers, giving her a lot of extra attention and love.

She was sitting independently between 9-11 months of age and was crawling by one. She started walking and speaking, though unclear, at age two. By three, she was a confident walker and could use a cup to drink. She’s a good eater and is not picky about food. Congee and meat are her favorites. She can go to toilet on her own and has few accidents. She does need a diaper at night. Sheena can also dress herself and put on her own shoes. When she was little, she got burned by hot water so she is still afraid of taking a bath.

In January of 2016, Sheena started receiving schooling inside the orphanage. The teachers quickly learned that she liked the toy numbers. They taught her how to string the toy numbers. After three months, Sheena made big progress in her language, gross motor, and social skills. She has learned words like teacher, ayi, chair, mine, etc. When talking with her, she responds with sounds like “en, oh, hao”. She likes to listen to music and will follow the beat by clapping her hands. She also tries to sing to the music. Sheena can walk upstairs and downstairs by herself and can now run faster. When she sees other kids fall down, she will walk over to help the child get up. If other kids get hurt, she will go over and blow on it to soothe the pain. In September of 2016, Sheena showed good progress with her cognition. She focuses in class to learn with other kids. Sheena likes being active and being held. She enjoys imitating, playing with toy cars, and playing hide and seek.

The agency which currently has Sheena’s file has a $5,000 grant available for her adoption, as well. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.

Meadow

Girl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect

 

Meadow is a beautiful girl who was found as a newborn and was moved into a foster family in May of 2016. She adapted to her foster family quickly and has a good routine schedule, including a daily nap. Meadow has a good appetite and is not a picky eater. She loves the snacks her foster mother gives her between meals. Meadow takes a bath twice a day in the summer and once in the winter, generally before going to bed. She is currently in diapers. Meadow was born with down syndrome and heart defects (ASD, VSD, and PDA). In November of 2015, she underwent surgery to repair her VSD and ASD and had a PDA ligation with tricuspid valvuloplasty. Her file mentioned her receiving a temporary pacemaker. In September of 2016, she had a brain MRI- there were no abnormal findings, but they did note that she had bilateral mastoiditis. Also at that time, she had genetic testing done and it was found that Meadow had alpha thalassemia (meaning she is just a carrier). A couple days later she had a mass on her neck looked at and nothing abnormal was found.

Meadow is not speaking yet, but she can turn her head when her name is called. She likes playing with adults and will often babble happily when playing alone. Meadow can sit and turn over on her own. She uses gestures to communicate- such as purposely putting her foot on her foster mother while lying on the bed or tugging at her clothes or wrist when she sees people eating. Meadow enjoys playing with dolls and giggling. A family will be blessed to have this little angel as a part of their family!

The agency has videos and additional photos available. There is a $5,000 agency grant for Meadow’s adoption with the current agency. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.

Dobie

Boy, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital Heart Defect

Two-year-old Dobie is a delightful little boy with a love for music and dancing. In April of 2016, Dobie was moved from his orphanage to a foster family. Dobie can say dad and mum and can turn his head when called. When strangers try to hold him, he goes to his foster parents and shakes his head, refusing to let them hold him. He can wave goodbye, clap his hands, and copy his foster mother’s dance moves, putting his hands up in the air and shaking his body to the beat. Dobie can stand up from a sitting position and walk short distances. He makes a lot of sounds and loves to babble. He seems to be very on target developmentally in comparison to other children with down syndrome his age.

Dobie enjoys playing with his older foster brother and playing outside. If his foster brother is being bossy, he will hit him with a toy and sometimes bite him- he certainly knows how to stand up for himself! Dobie loves it when his foster mom holds his hand and his foster mother says he is a smart and flexible little boy. He will take the bottle when someone fills it up to drink on his own. He likes to eat apples and jelly the most. Dobie can learn how to play with a toy quickly after being taught. He really likes the toy trumpet. Dobie also likes playing with small balls, toy cars, and watching tv.

Please share so that Dobie might dance his way right into the heart of his forever family.

The agency has videos and additional photos available. There is a $5,000 agency grant for Dobie’s adoption with the current agency. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.

Lucie

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect (TOF/ASD/PDA)

Meet Lucie! This adorable (and very huggable) little one just turned 2 years old! She came into care as an infant, and was found to have Down syndrome, as well as some heart issues (Tetralogy of Fallot, ASD, PDA). As of last year, she had not received surgery. We are waiting for updates. Delays are always expected with little ones who have Down syndrome, however, her gross motor skills were not far off the norm. At almost 10 months of age, Lucie was sitting up very well, and crawling! Lucie is very sweet, social, and loves her nanny. She has been well fed by the looks of those cheeks, and is ready to be the center of attention in her very own family. Lucie is waiting for you!
