Evan #

Boy: 2015

Diagnosis: Hydrocephalus, optic nerve atrophy

Evan lives in a baby house in Eastern Europe.  His current diagnoses include: Congenital hydrocephalus – VPS. Horizontal nystagmus. Atrophy of the visual nerve. Moderate muscle hypotonia. Mild mental delay. Delay in the neuro-psychological development.

Evan is interested in what is happening around him. He turns his head in the direction of sound. When spoken to, he listens but does not fix his stare or follow bright objects with his eyes. He is attentive when playing with a musical toy or bright object.  He does not imitate actions with objects.  

Evan can turn from his back to his belly and vice versa, stand up, and reach for a toy that is attached to his bed or given by an adult. He catches the toy after chaotic movements of his hands while trying to coordinate them. He sometimes can place the toy from one hand in the other by himself but sometimes he needs help from an adult. His left hand is no longer in a fist and there are longer periods of time when his fingers are spread out.  

When communicating with an adult, Evan reaches out and touches his/her face and smiles. He is not aggressive but when he wants to be left alone, he will bite his hand.

When provoked, he can imitate syllables but cannot gesture or mimic.  Evan does not react when called by name and does not give a toy when asked.  

Evan is entirely dependent on the staff but will reach toward his food when being fed. 

 

More information, pictures and videos are available from his agency!

B/c we only have his file for a short time, donations will not be able to be accepted until a family is found for him.

A CHILD for the Miller family — IN

Leon and Gloria grew up in an Amish home where adoption was rarely heard of. After getting married and being blessed with 3 children, they often talked about adoption but always said “maybe someday”, and never really pursued it any further.

After reading a family’s story on Facebook, Gloria came to know, pray for, and support the families of Reece’s Rainbow. It was there that her eyes were opened to the plight of so many orphans around the world. After lots of prayer and careful consideration they decided that now was the time to move forward with their “maybe someday”. They are all very excited to be able to provide a forever home for one little girl.

It is only through the help of family, friends, strangers, and a whole lot of prayers that will make this adoption possible. One of their favorite quotes is, “Do for one what you wish you could do for millions.”

You can follow along in their journey in their facebook group, A Journey of Hope.

Sixteen month old Colt is a curious toddler who loves music! Whenever he hears it, he follows the music to shake and dance. Life of the party! His developmental report was completed in June when he was 13 months old. At that time, Colt could raise his head when lying on his stomach, turn over by himself, and grasp his feet to play. He loved to tease people. He will stick is tongue out, make faces and laugh. When he’s excited he says things like, “Ah ba da!” He babbles in response to people. When he goes outside, he is very curious about his surroundings. He engages people with eye contact, and he can nod his head for “yes.” He is strong-willed, and if he doesn’t like what you’re doing, he lets you know! Colt is closest to his caretaker. He enjoys colorful toys that make sounds. Colt was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, and he has had surgery to correct an atrial septal defect.

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?

Very friendly, shying boy, not talkative, but smart.

It’s hard to say if he really wants to be adopted. I guess he has lots of fear before unknown country, people and culture.

But if he likes the people I believe he would be a good match to active family

An I600a must be filed by February 2018; otherwise she will age out and be unavailable for adoption.

It is hard to say if she wants to be adopted. Now she is close to age out and perhaps anybody could try to melt her fear. She is a very good girl with a good potential. She likes to dance in her wheel-chair, she participates in competitions. She is very active and a sports girl. She could participate in para-Olympic games.

I highly recommend her to a family living close to different activities to give her a chance to go in for sports.
