Sometimes when she says a word, she will utter “ah ah ah” in a hurry. She understands instructions, such as “throw the rubbish into the garbage can” and “set the table and chairs for lunch/dinner.”

When seeing caretakers standing and feeding other kids, Camille would bring a stool and ask the caretakers to have a seat. She is gentle in character and gets along with other kids peacefully.

Down syndrome, CHD-VSD (post-op)

Update from Feb 2020:
Kora can eat solid foods, she can eat all foods suitable for children. But because it is an institutional setting, we give the children little fish to eat. All bones are removed from meat and fish by nannies before serving to the children for safety. We usually give her softer foods.  She can grab things to eat herself. She also will break off and share snacks with other children.

 

*What she means is that they give them soft foods usually mixed with rice to prevent choking, to help the children eat faster, and so they don’t have to distinguish from children with stomach or eating issues. All the children who have come with this diet have had stomach issues because of it and have needed time to adjust to eating harder foods but recovered fine. Each day after eating in the morning and night she will drink a little milk.

Kora can understand almost everything that is said to her. She also can respond using actions, she just cannot communicate with spoken language, she can only speak a little.   She did not show any problems with the heart after her heart surgery. Previously her eyes often had tears. In December 2019, an eye examination was performed. She had a Nasolacrimal duct narrowing + nasolacrimal duct intubation. She has recovered well from this.

——————————————-

Kora is a beautiful little girl with a beautiful smile and cute little dimples! Kora was born with Down syndrome and a CHD-VSD, for which she has had surgery to correct. By 2.5 years of age, Kora was walking forwards and backwards independently. She can understand simple instructions and helps look after other children near her. If another child has a runny nose, the caretaker will say “Kora, wipe the nose for your friend with the towel” and she would use the towel to help clean the child. She would pass it to the caretaker and then get another towel to clean another child up. Her caregiver will give her a thumbs up and praise her for being so great. At the end of an activity, she will put away toys with the other children. Kora likes music and dancing to the beat. She gets along well with other children and will kiss them or put her hand on her mouth and blow them a kiss. She will wave her hands to say goodbye. Kora is also very happy to play outdoors! She loves to pull the caretaker’s hands to go upstairs and walk on the bridge. She enjoys looking around and touching flowers and grasses after seeing them.

In May of 2019, Kora started attending the Little Sister’s Pre-School Program. She adapted well to going to school. She can move her stool to the designated position when she comes into the classroom and will sit down happily. She does not speak much, but she can understand the teacher’s instructions and will cooperate positively. When the teacher calls her name, she can raise her hands up to indicate that she is there. She will imitate the teacher to dance along to the music in class. Kora can hold a pen to write on the blank paper. She will curiously touch the lines she draws with the other hand. When the teacher says it is time to go outside, Kora always stands up and runs to the door. She likes interaction with people too and is not scared of new people. Kora has a good appetite and she likes snacks. She is a sound sleeper. Kora is ready for a forever family! Could that family be yours?

Written Update: Colette relies on formula and she cannot swallow food. Our working staff help her with physical therapy every day, aiming at improving her limbs’ muscle strength. In the afternoon, she is taken to the function room, mainly receiving training for her speech and limbs coordination. Colette gets along well with her caretakers and her little friends. She is active and likes crawling around. When she finds something solid, she will climb over it and stand up. When she sees something (such as toys) interesting, she will try to get it by crawling or moving her body with the support of her upper limbs. Now she can crawl or stand up/walk when holding onto something.

———————————

Adorable Colletta is quite the giggler! She loves playing with toys and looking at herself in a mirror! Sweet Colletta is described as alert, timid, and quiet. At the time her file was prepared, she was crawling with her elbows alternately and she could sit with support. She often liked to find a special duck toy, which she would put in her mouth to bite. When the duck toy made sound, Colletta would burst into giggles! Colletta receives rehabilitation for language and limb flexibility every morning and afternoon. Although she wasn’t saying words at the time her file was prepared, she was babbling a lot! In addition to having Down syndrome, Colletta has an abdominal scar. A U.S. physician who examined her in April of 2016 wasn’t sure what it was from, but believes it may be from a feeding tube before she was brought to the orphanage. She was also found to have a heart murmur.

During an orphanage visit in April of 2016, Colletta was observed to be a pretty baby girl who was very alert and engaged in her surroundings. While in therapy training, she was very agreeable and went along with the exercises. When sitting up, she looked around a lot and babbled more than any other baby they saw that day. Caregivers said it was typical for her to babble a lot. She could roll over and sit with support. When placed on the mat, she stayed in one place and was very content. Caregivers say she is an easygoing baby. We hope to be able to get an update on Colletta and can’t wait to see who Colletta’s lucky family will be!

There is a $2,500 agency grant for Colletta’s adoption with a specific adoption agency.

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.

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!

This two year old is very affectionate and loves to be held and cuddled. Her caregivers describe her as a gentle and easy baby. She was born prematurely at 34 weeks and is diagnosed with Down syndrome. Developmentally she can crawl, pull to stand, sits unassisted, grasp objects, understand simple instructions, responds to her name, and uses simple gestures to communicate. She gets along well with her peers and enjoys when the older children hold her. It’s reported that she does need physical therapy to assist with her motor development. A loving prospective adoption family that is knowledgeable of her special needs and that can provide excellent access to therapies and special education would be best.

Update, Jan 2020:  She still cannot stand or walk independently. She needs someone for support.   Just an aside — With all the layers and slippers she is wearing, it would be hard to learn to walk. Her area doesn’t have centralized heating and she is in a foster family where they may be doing a lot for her too.

Update Oct 2019:  She can now crawl, but she cannot walk. She can stand alone and can squat. I think she would be able to talk, but she is scared. Her health is good. She is a bit chubby, she needs to be fed often. She is very interested in music. When music is playing, she can keep up with the rhythm/tempo and will try to jump to the music, but her feet don’t get off the ground. She can’t speak yet, but can recognize words. She can understand simple commands. She is warm towards people. Her foster parents are elderly. They only sent over one picture. The rest are from a recent home visit. Occasionally, she will say “baba” or “mama” and she says it very clearly. But, she doesn’t make any requests when she calls out. She knows her body parts and her 5 senses. She understands the meaning of “no.” She currently has 16 teeth.

Eliza is a delightful little one; she is such a happy and social little girl. Eliza was born with Down syndrome, and has the typical motor delays.

Zoe is an active, happy child who likes to tease and play games with her caretakers. Her file notes that since the time of her intake, she has continued to progress developmentally, has good motor skills and can point to parts of her body when instructed. Her file describes her as becoming more and more beautiful and adorable each month that goes by. She likes to tease her nannies and if they ask her to stand for a photo, she will sit right before they press the shutter and smile and giggle and do this repeatedly to tease with them. She loves to give hugs to everyone she meets and is not afraid of strangers and has learned to wave goodbye when a guest leaves. She lights up when the nannies praise her and she enjoys playing with toys and her peers, but can also play independently as well. She enjoys toys with colorful and various shapes and gets along with her peers. She is able to respond to her nannies instructions and knows when her name is being called. She understands her teacher’s motions and words and often imitates them. At 24 months, she could crawl to look for toys to play and could independently stand up and stand for a while. She is also able to walk by holding onto the rail or by holding on to a nanny’s hand. She now has a steadier gait and can toddle by herself and is walking more steadily than in the months prior. She will reach out her hands to the nannies as if to ask them to help guide her to walk. She will imitate words and uses some words to express her needs.

Zoe was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and has delayed growth and development. She is in rehabilitation/therapy and cooperates well with her rehabilitation training and with therapists. Her file is extremely detailed with a lot of wonderful developmental information and benchmarks and any family interested in reviewing her file can be connected with individuals who have visited her orphanage.

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!

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.

Meet Lena! She is a huggable and oh-so-sweet little girl who is 2 years old! Lena has no known heart issues. She lives at the orphanage, and has not received as much help with her development as she should. While motor and speech delays are expected with little ones who have Down syndrome, early intervention can really help. Lena is quiet, happy, and a very lovable little one. In fact, her report states she loves hugs! She needs a family soon, and the therapies required to help her with her speech and motor skills. Lena is waiting for you!

Updated February 2019:  Sweet Lena has delays, due to her Down syndrome.  She is not yet potty-trained, and she is introverted, easy-going, and not fussy.  She’s just starting to walk around.

Lena’s current agency has a $5000 grant available for her adoption.

Sweet little Jocelyn is gentle and quiet and a too-cute sweetheart who is about to turn TWO! She likes it when the caretaker cuddles or teases her. She can play with toys and likes watching her hands. She will smile at you when she is happy and she is generally good spirited. Jocelyn has been receiving rehabilitation training and after her first month of training, she could turn over and search for toys and control her head when her body is propped with her elbows. Jocelyn is living in a foster family and is diagnosed as having Down Syndrome and CHD. In November of 2016, she had a VSD repair, ligation of PDA, PFO (patent foramen ovale) closure, and tricuspid plasty. Agency staff have met Jocelyn multiple times.

Her current agency has a $5000 grant available for her adoptions. They have many photos and videos available, as well as additional information!
