Naomi

PRC
Down syndrome, anal atresia, post-operative of sigmoidostomy

Listed: Feb 2019

Sweet little Naomi is two years old. Naomi is described by her caregivers as cute, chubby and fair-skinned. She is full of energy and in August she was crawling everywhere and pulling to stand. Whenever her nannies call her name, she will crawl quickly to them and hold her arms out to be picked up. She loves being held. Naomi also loves playing with toys and with her little friends. She is fond of music and will rock her body to the rhythm. She is not shy around strangers and has a ready smile.

Naomi entered the care of the orphanage at just two days old. Soon after she was sent for surgery due to anal atresia. A sigmoid colostomy was done at that time. We are waiting for an update on Naomi to find out if the colostomy has since been reversed. When Naomi was 5 months old it was confirmed that she has a congenital heart disease (minor PFO). She is also suspected to have Down syndrome due to her facial features.

Selma

Girl, born 2016
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: Feb 2019

Darling Selma loves playing in the water, and she kicks her legs to splash in it every day. Her caregivers say she has bright eyes and a pure heart, and they all adore her. When being cuddled she will touch your face while looking at you sweetly! She loves eating, and will shout happily when she sees a bottle coming, but if you ask her to sleep she’ll roll on her side and grumble. Selma has Down syndrome, and no other known health needs. When she was first admitted into the orphanage she was noted to be malnourished and had eczema on her neck and ear, but with treatment her skin cleared. She had difficulties keeping her milk down and she had poor sucking ability; however, with the proper care these matters improved. Selma’s development is delayed, so she attends rehabilitation training. They are working on crawling, but as of October 2017 she hadn’t mastered it quite yet. She can say ‘mom’ and ‘grandmother’ and will observe the facial expressions of the adults around her. If you walk by her she will make sounds and if you leave her she will cry! Her greatest need if for a family to take her to place called home.

Sofia

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome and congenital heart disease- ASD, VSD, and PDA

Listed: August 2018

Sofia is an adorable little girl! One month after surgery to repair Sofia’s heart, it was discovered that her trachea had been injured while she was intubated during surgery. At that time, she underwent a tracheotomy and had a trach in place for three years, which was recently removed. Sofia’s unfortunate complication that occurred during her heart surgery led her to live in a rather fortunate situation. Because of her trach, her orphanage life has been lived in the orphanage hospital with a wonderful nanny who has raised her like a daughter.

Sofia is a smiley, outgoing, and confident child. She can dress herself, brush her teeth, and she is potty trained. She says simple words like mama, baba, ayi and jiejie. Sofia imitates others and copies hand movements, as you can see in her video when she is outside with the social worker. Sofia likes to play with others, listen to music, and play with all kinds of toys, but especially those that play music. She is interested in new things and playing games. She likes watching singing and dancing programs and she will shake her body with the music. She has a strong desire to perform. Sofia is closely attached to her caretaker and she enjoys cuddling and kissing her. She is helpful and kind to everyone, including visitors who she will move chairs for, say bye bye to, and blow kisses at. Sofia is just waiting for her turn to be part of a forever family and we are hoping that day will come soon!

Listed: July 2018

Meet Penelope! She is a lovable and charming little girl who is 3 years old. Penelope came into care when she was about 6 months old. After a few months at the orphanage, she was placed with a foster family, where she has blossomed! Penelope was born with Down syndrome. She has an ASD, which as of her report in 2017, had required no treatment. Penelope has the typical delays seen with Down syndrome, but has accomplished a lot since joining her foster family. She is especially close to her older foster brother, and waits impatiently for him to come home from school. Sadly, even an excellent foster family is not a permanent solution for an orphan. Penelope needs a family who will become hers forever. This sweet little one is waiting!

There is an agency grant of $1,500 toward agency fees for a qualified family, with her current agency.

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.

If you reach out your hands to her and tell her “mama hold you,” she would crawl towards you. Theresa was born with down syndrome and came into care at about 7 months of age. She’s ready and waiting for her forever family to see her so she can snuggle and love on them daily.

The agency which currently has Theresa’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.

Blythe

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Listed: May 2017

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! Blythe is very curious about new things and likes playing with bright colored toys and toys that make sounds. 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
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: May 2017

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.

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.

Azalea

Girl, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: May 2017

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!

Meadow

Girl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect

Listed: May 2017

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.

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!

Meet Annie! This sweet and sometimes serious little one recently turned 3 years old. Her file is outdated, so we have requested new info.

Hopefully, we will know more very soon. We do know Annie is a spunky, active little girl who enjoys playing. She has the delays typical of a child with Down syndrome, so she may require some therapy when she comes home. Annie is an expressive, adorable little girl, who is waiting for her very own family.

Down syndrome, CHD (post-op)

Listed: March 2017

Catherine is a sensitive little girl who gazes thoughtfully at people when they talk to her. When her caregiver gently touches her on the head, she will call “mama” and smile. Catherine is diagnosed with Down syndrome, and she also had surgery for a heart defect in February 2016. As of October 2016 she could roll over easily and hold herself up when lying on her stomach. When lying on her back she would grab her feet to roll around and play. Her caregivers play a game of catch with her by tossing a pillow back and forth, and she grins gleefully when they tease her. She started babbling at six months old, and at a year and half she could say “mama.” Her favorite toys are the ones that make music! Catherine needs a caring family to help her grow and develop.

The agency who currently holds Catherine’s file is offering a $4000 grant.
