Hailey and Hugh

Sibling Pair, ages 9 & 6
T-2sibs

Hailey has developmental delays and vision issues

Hailey & Hugh need to be together!!

Listed: April 2017

These siblings are unfortunately living apart, as the children are housed by age and gender at the facilities. They miss each other a lot and they’re both always happy to see each other when they can get together. They want to be together long term in the same adopted family.

Hailey is described by her caregivers as mild, positive, vivacious and well-behaved. She’s small for her age, wears glasses and has a small vocabulary. She’s easily distracted but has made great improvement in comprehension. Hailey’s a warm-hearted girl who finds pleasure in helping others. She remembers her birth family but is excited to start a new life with an adoptive family—as long as she isn’t separated from her brother.

Hugh is filled with curiosity about the world, often asking “why?” He speaks well and is reported to cooperative and able to follow rules. Like his big sister, he’s easily distracted but he works hard on his schoolwork. He attends primary school and mixes well with the other kids his age. His caregivers describe him as a good boy, energetic and usually happy. He’s been very clear he wants to be adopted with his sister.

There’s a $4000 grant for families who qualify to help with adoption expenses, available from the agency.  Video is available.

Sage and Sven

Sage July 2016Sven July 2016

Two-year old Sage and eight-year old Sven are a beautiful sibling group. Even though Sage and Sven have been placed into different foster families, the Central Authority in their country requires that they be adopted together.

Listed July 2016

Per the social worker’s report, Sage is completely healthy and typically developing. Based on videos received in June 2016, Sage walks well, including on uneven terrain. She plays with toys, enjoys the company of domestic animals, and appears to be vocalizing, babbling and speaking words.

Sven walks independently and communicates easily even though it is sometimes difficult to understand him. He answers questions, names objects and people, and shows curiosity about his surroundings. Sven attends a school for children with special needs and loves to go. His foster mother reports that he takes medication to calm him as he tends to be very excitable and energized. During periods of anxiety, fear, sensory overload or other stressors, Sven can become extremely agitated. During these times, it is difficult to reach Sven with communication and it takes a while for him to calm. Sven has a wonderful and kind foster mother who takes great care of him.

5 siblings #1-50

MAE
NV

Mark – Age: 6 Diagnosis: speech delays; mild cognitive delay
Ellie – Age: 10 Diagnosis: mild cognitive delays
Vallie – Age 11 Diagnosis: mild cognitive delays
Nellie – Age: 12 Diagnosis: mild cognitive delays
Allie – Age: 15 Diagnosis: mild cognitive delays

 

This sibling group was raised by their mother until her death in early 2014. At that time, they were placed in a group home due to their orphan status. The rules of their country dictate that they should all be adopted together. However, all the children desire a family and have agreed that they are willing to be split up if that means that they can have a family. The children agreed to be split into 2 smaller sibling groups for the purposes of adoption: Mark, Ellie, and Allie can be adopted as a sibling group of 3 and Vallie and Nellie can be adopted as a sibling group of 2. When asked by the agency if they were truly ok with being split up, Allie stated, “We have waited so long that it is obvious that no one wants us. We will do whatever it takes to be adopted”. The agency is seeking one family willing to adopt all 5 children, but will honor the children’s wishes and work with a family to adopt either the group of 2 or 3. Since the children chose how they would like to be grouped if separated, the agency cannot take any requests to separate the children differently than what is stated.

None of the children had received any type of education and as a result, the older children cannot read or write. It is believed that most of their delays are a result of a lack of education and experience. All the children are currently attending school and making some academic progress. None of the children have behavior issues and all 5 children are physically healthy.

The agency has photos and videos of all 5 children that were taken in June 2016. In the videos, Mark states that his favorite toys are the tractor, staffed bears, small cars; he likes going to school and he likes to play any kind of electronic games. Nellie says that her favorite subject in school is music; most of all she likes to watch TV in her free time and to dance folk dances; she likes to listen to any kind of music. Ellie says that she likes to draw; her favorite subjects at school are music and math; she likes to play outside with the children in her free time “moms, dads and babies”; and she likes to jump rope; Vallie says her favorite subject at school is PE; she likes all kinds of movies and music; she likes to play in the yard with the children in her free time (they play tag); they also go on walks; and that her grades at school are “so and so”. Allie says that her favorite subjects at school are chemistry and biology; she likes to listen to music in her free time, going on a walks with friends and siblings in the nature; all kinds of music and movies are fine with her; her favorite color is green.

Simeon and Charlotte

Significantly delayed; Cerebral palsy
Charlotte, born 2002
significantly delayed

Listed February 22, 2011

New pic Jan 2017.

Simeon is a beautiful Roma child with dark hair and big brown eyes.  He is significantly delayed, and diagnosed with cerebral palsy.  We are trying to get more information on his social history.  Simeon is a fraternal twin, whose sister has already been adopted.

Simeon is described as mostly non-verbal, and is not able to walk on his own.  There just seems to be so much potential for him in a family environment.  He is already an outcast because of his darker skin and will be left institutionalized – and likely bedridden — if not adopted.

From a family who visited with him in 2011:  Simeon is barely responsive to stimuli, but I believe that could change if he received regular, loving attention.  I didn’t observe any of the orphanage workers spending much time interacting with him.  There were times that I was able to get him to smile and grip my hand.  After a few days, he was even able to clap!  But most of the time he is staring off in any direction and seems completely unable to control most of his movements.  He was always either lying down or propped up in a sitting position.  I never heard him speak.  I also never heard him cry or fuss. Overall, a very calm child.

Married couples only, larger families and older parents welcome.

Clayton-2015

Clayton, April 2015

Twin boys, born August 2010

Updated pictures and medical info April 2015

Clayton — Cerebral palsy. taking anticonvulsant therapy

His twin brother, Caleb, passed away in 2017

Listed: Oct 16, 2013

From someone who met them in 2013:
(Brother 1)  He is in with a much younger groupa. He goes outside twice daily when it is nice, and this orphanage does physical therapy five times a week. He makes eye contact, but is in his own little world until you talk directly to him. He appears kind of zoned out, and then I said his name and stroked his cheek and his whole body came to life, just longing to be touched and tickled. He arched his back and smiled, but I wasn’t allowed to pick him up. He has grown too long for his stroller. I put a velcro wrist rattle on him and he purposefully moved his left arm to interact with it immediately. He is well nourished there, but he will really need a mama’s touch to help him grow. His teeth look like they are in great shape. He uses his arms, but I did not see him move his legs, though he was certainly wiggling from one side to the other and is a kid who would really like to be on the move! He is not in the same groupa as his brother. Kids are generally grouped by what they are eating, and his brother was in the groupa for kids doing formula and purees. I think he may be on only formula still. It was so hard to leave him behind!

(Brother 2)  Several days later, I saw who I thought was the same child in a different stroller, but the nannies corrected me when I called him by his brothers name, slowly communicating that this was his twin brother. They look SO much alike! The first day I saw him, he was badly in need of a diaper change and I showed the nannies. He was laying flat on his back in the outdoor playpen, and when I came back to return my daughter to the groupa, he was still there an hour later, unchanged in diaper and position. The next day I saw him, though, one of the sweet nannies was playing music on her ipod, and he was laying close to her in a stroller. Although he didn’t interact with the music, he was very quick to respond to my voice. The second I stopped talking, he stopped smiling and zoned out again. But, he was so responsive to touch and baby talk!  He pushed his body around in the stroller with his legs AND arms, and had a lot of good neck strength. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is only being limited by the assumptions of his diagnosis. As we left our daughter’s groupa for the last time, we saw him being lovingly carried down to his physical therapy appointment. I think it was a sign of good things to come for these boys!

Neither boy is using meaningful speech, though both babble. Videos available. Wonderful region to adopt from, especially if one parent needs to stay alone for a time.

Hunter, Forest and Ridge

30809005259_130809005814 30809010039

 

Hunter-001ForestRidge-001Brothers – they need to be adopted together!

They are said to be “very good boys”!

Listed: August 11, 2013

Hunter, The oldest, was born in March 2004:  Hyperkinetic disorders/Hyperkinetic conduct disorder; Nonorganic sleep disorder/Emotional sleep disorder; Benign intracranial hypertension; Other specified diseases of gallbladder; Flat foot

Hunter likes to eat a lot. He and his brother Forest have a lot of energy. He really likes to do arts and crafts and play games. Most of the time he has a very sweet disposition. He is very keen to interact with adults. That being said if an adult is too rough with him things will start to escalate. If an adult tries to swat at him or restrain him in someway he may attempt to bite. Hunter can speak pretty well but he can’t always communicate what’s going on with his emotions. Hunter responds best to strong male figures. An attentive dad is key to a positive adoption for him. He is in grade 4 here but he can’t read, write, do math, or anything like that right now. He is schooled by himself and school mostly consists of arts and crafts. He is not unintelligent but very delayed. He likes soccer. He would be great in an attentive family where he and his brothers will get much attention and where they will be by far the youngest children. I would adopt him myself if I could be as focused on him and his brothers as he needs a dad and mom to be and if we had the space for them along with our current 3. He enjoys picking fruit and cleaning in the orphanage. He is never been far from the orphanage and he is interested in coming to America. He has communicated that he really wants to come to America and really wants a papa.

Forest, the middle boy, was born in Aug 2006:
Mild mental delays; speech disorder

Forest likes to eat a lot. He does school the same way his brother Hunter does. He is considered to be in the second grade. Very sweet but also very active. Like his older brother, he needs to need a lot of attention to keep him from unintended harm. He likes to be outside. He has minor institutional self harming tendencies like scratching himself to leave marks. He does not do that a lot though. Forest loves to give hugs and kisses and hold hands with the adults.

Ridge, the youngest brother was born in Aug 2008
Stenosis of pulmonary artery; currently he does not require surgery. Tuberculin skin test – positive?

Ridge likes to clean. He was mopping the floor with an adult sized mop as I wrote this. He is a very small but sweet boy. He’s a very peaceful and charming child. He is not in school yet but he seems to be the most intellectual of his brothers. He will likely do better in school then his brothers when he gets the chance. He is so cute it is hard to imagine him spending another day without a family. When the boys orphanage shuts down Ridge will be separated from his brothers for several months because he is not old enough to go with his older brothers. I expect this will be a very traumatic time for him, so if a family could come for him as soon as possible that would be best. No family should hesitate to adopt these children as long as they are available to give the time and attention that these children deserve. If that is done the children will flourish.
