Ayla

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome, congenital heart disease (VSD and PDA)

Listed: August 2018

Ayla is a beautiful little girl! Her file also mentions an umbilical hernia and pigeon chest/rib exstrophy briefly. Ayla joined a foster family in 2015 and is well loved by her foster family. She can walk unsupported and get dressed and undressed by herself, choosing her outfit because she likes to look pretty. She can count on her fingers and point to her nose and mouth if asked. She likes to dance with her foster sister too. Ayla can eat with a spoon by herself. She knows how to help do housework, picking up toys and putting them in the basket, helping put trash in the trash can, and dishes in the sink. She is fond of playing with other children. Ayla really enjoys books and being read to. When she was younger, she would point to the pictures in the book and babble, as if she was reading. She would sometimes even take the book and ‘read’ by herself. Ayla has really matured and shown a lot of growth since entering her foster home. She will clap her hands when being praised. Ayla uses single words and sometimes combines a couple words. Although her language skills are delayed, she understands what adults are saying and she is very interactive and good at imitating. Her foster mother describes her as cute, smart, active, and helpful. Ayla is being well prepared for life in a family, but is desperately in need of a family that will be hers forever. Could that family be yours?

Videos available, as well:  Video 1, Video 2, Video 3

There is a $1,500 agency grant for Ayla’s adoption with her current adoption agency.

He was weak as an infant because of the CHD, but received surgery to repair the ASD and VSD in March. A lot of improvement was seen after surgery. Davi has good physical development and flexible limbs. He can grasp and hold toys, raise and control his head, turn over freely, and sit with support. Davi is a smiley little guy who likes music and is curious about his toys. He can stretch out his hands to reach for toys ahead of him when he is sitting supported. He will also raise both of his hands to grab the toy hanging above him when he is lying on his back. Davi is good at tracking objects and people and can hear well. He will turn his head to the source of sound and when his name is called. Davi interacts well with familiar people. In fact, he loves spending time interacting with his caretaker more than anything else and will smile happily when teased.

Down syndrome

Listed: June 2018

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.

Georgie

Boy, born 2014
Blind

Listed: May 2018

Georgie was transferred to his current home in April 2018. He had experienced neglect and under-stimulation in his previous orphanage but already his development is progressing and we look forward to seeing Georgie learn and explore the world. Georgie is functionally blind and has very little light perception. He has been doing so well in his transition into this new chapter of life. Everyday we are more captivated by his bubbly, sweet, gentle disposition.

Georgie is rapidly changing and developing. He is learning how to scoot around, bear weight, and explore with his hands. He had no experience in his previous home with self feeding, but already is making great progress and is self feeding with minimal support. He had no English exposure previously, but in just a month his English understanding is already developing and he responds to several commands. He is weak, but gaining strength. He can pull up to a stand using a surface for support.

Georgie loves making silly noises and often vocalizes silly babbles, finds interesting surfaces to tap on, or picks things up and throws them to hear their clatter. Georgie is very social. He loves to be held and swung around. He sometimes whimpers when he is put down and communicates non-verbally that he wants to be held. He mimics sounds others make and often bursts with excited laughter when playing with other adults and children. We are so excited to see him begin to hit the milestones he is already working towards.

 

UPDATE NOV 2018:  Georgie is totally blind. It has been confirmed that he has no light perception, Leber’s is suspected. Georgie can now crawl, walk independently, climb up and down stairs (with a railing), and balance on a balance board. He self-feeds. He is good at predicting parts of a routine. His language, both receptive and expressive, is growing steadily. He can respond to various commands in English such as “Come”, “Clap”, “Spin”, and “Touch your head”. He will follow sounds and voices and will seek them out when it’s a preferred person/object. He is showing an increased ability to self-entertain and will seek out toys in his environment. He loves to repeat songs and commonly heard phrases. He likes to interact with others through playing echoing games and will giggle and laugh when playing. Georgie has a relaxed, easy-going personality. He also loves to be silly and will find reasons to laugh. Some of his favorite activities are playing in water, swinging, and playing catch. He is social and loves to be held and cuddled.

Joely

Girl, born Sept 2013

oculo-auriculo-vertebral (OAV) syndrome (known as Goldenhar syndrome)

South Asia – Pacific

Listed: May 2018

Joely is full of energy and vibrancy. Joely was born with a cleft palate, a deformed/missing right ear, a small meningocele (soft fluid filled mass) at the back of her head, and Congenital Heart Disease – Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). In February of 2014, Joely was diagnosed by the genetics doctor with Oculo Auriculo Vertebral Spectrum. In 2017, she had an operation to repair her cleft palate; however, there are still two small holes in her palate which will need to be repaired again. Her surgeons have stated that her meningocele would need an operation in the future, but that it is not urgent. Her doctor recommends continual regular monitoring and checkups with a pediatric cardiologist, but does not see the need for surgery at this point. She shows no signs of heart problems at this time. Joely is fit and active and does not tire easily.

Because of Joely’s delays, she currently has weekly occupational and speech therapy as per recommendations. She really enjoys her sessions. Despite her wide range of medical concerns, Joely is really thriving. She started attending the local nursery school this year and is adapting well. Her teachers are very fond of her and she holds her own in a class of her peers. Although she is talking, her speech is delayed and she is often difficult to understand, especially for strangers. Her house parents understand her well. Joely is more than capable of making her needs and wants known using a combination of words with facial and hand gestures. She is independent and likes to do things by herself if she can, but will willingly accept help when needed. She follows her daily routine well. She has become more affectionate over the last 6 months and enjoys all the activities at the child caring agency, especially singing in the nightly devotions. Despite the holes in her palate, Joely is a good eater and enjoys all kinds of foods. She has friends within the center but can be a little rough with younger children. She does well with older children, as she models their behavior. She can be boisterous at times, but she has shown a much higher level of self-control since she started nursery school. Joely will continue to develop and catch up with the consistency and love of a forever family who have good medical resources and therapists at hand.

*Photos and video are available for seriously interested families. Joely is from a small Asian country. Per her country’s regulations, pictures and videos can only be shared with seriously interested families directly and are not allowed to be shared publicly. Joely’s file is listed with multiple agencies with a sending program from this country and approval is dependent on the head of adoption in this particular country.

There is a $500 agency grant for Joely’s adoption with a specific agency.

Oaklee

Boy, born 2013
PRC
Bladder exstrophy and anal atresia

Listed: April 2018

Oaklee is the cutest little boy, born in October of 2013, who is also reported to be very happy and smart. Oaklee has no intellectual or physical disabilities. He likes cartoons, musical toys, singing, dancing, and being cuddled. He likes eating chicken and noodles, but doesn’t like sweets. Oaklee’s medical needs don’t slow him down. He runs, jumps, skips, and climbs stairs. He speaks in full sentences, can converse with adults, and likes to ask questions. Oaklee was born with exstrophy of his bladder and anal atresia. Oaklee had an operation in August of 2016 and because of complications, he had another procedure in September of 2016. The surgeries he had done were not done well and part or all of his colon was removed, which has caused him to have bowel incontinence. He has a ureterostomy on the right side. Oaklee suffers frequent and severe UTI’s and is still in need of additional surgeries ASAP.

Oaklee is very smart, a charmer, talkative, and very capable. He can dress himself, feed himself, and is also able to empty his urostomy bag and seal it up again all by himself. He can be shy with strangers, but once he warms up he loves to be the center of attention and can be quite the performer. Little Flower considers his medical needs urgent and hopes a family will come forward quickly and that his adoption can be expedited. We hope to find a family for Oaklee as soon as possible so he can get home and get the procedures he so desperately needs!

The agency has video available. There is a $1,500 agency grant for Oaklee’s adoption with his current adoption agency.

PRC
Microphthalmia, delays

Listed: March 2018

Olivia is an energetic, smiley, and beautiful little girl who likes listening to music and playing outside. She is especially close to her caregivers and loves to be cuddled and tickled by them. Olivia is diagnosed as having microphthalmia, which means that both of her eyes are very small and underdeveloped. She also has very low muscle tone. She is able to stand with support, but she can’t walk yet. Her caregivers have been working with her, but she still struggles to move independently. She can sit up for about 30 minutes, but she gets tired and often needs support. She knows her name, responds when called, and can follow simple instructions. She can make sounds like “ah,” but doesn’t say any words. She gets excited when her caregivers tell her it’s snack time or time to go play! Olivia has some feeding issues. She mainly eats soft foods like mashed vegetables. She has a hard time swallowing and needs food chopped up for her. She really likes to hold her bottle herself. Olivia is in a school program in her orphanage during the week days and lives with a foster family on the orphanage grounds the remainder of the time. Olivia is making progress, but what she needs most is a family who can provide her with love and therapies that are simply not available in her orphanage!

Olivia has a $500 agency grant, with her current adoption agency. Olivia needs a family with an approved home study to be able to hold her file or move forward with adopting her.

Hugo = HAPPINESS! This precious little pumpkin!  By age one, Hugo was rolling over and sitting up with some support, but not yet crawling. If he wanted a toy, he would roll and roll until he got to it. When someone he likes interacts with him, Hugo makes happy “yiyiyaya” sounds. He loves music and waves his hands along to the rhythm. Since May of 2017, he has been living with a foster family on the orphanage grounds. Hugo’s caretakers say he is shy and that he likes playing with toys with sounds, interacting with adults, and outdoor activities with adults and the other children in the activity room.

Eden

Girl, born 2014

Eden is completely blind and has profound hearing loss. She received bilateral cochlear implants and is responding to sound and making many new sounds, although not yet saying any words.

Listed: Feb 2018

Eden has delayed milestones as a result of having no visual or auditory input for so long, but we are excited to see how she progresses over the coming months. She attends an on-site preschool every morning. She can sometimes get overwhelmed by the new sounds she is hearing, and when she feels this way, she tries to take her speech processors off. Eden has some self-stimulating behaviors. She loves to splash in the water and is getting better and better at walking independently with her guide cane. She loves to swing and rock in her rocking horse. She loves to cuddle. She has started to take several steps on her own, and also while holding onto a push toy (pre guide cane) or her cane.

Jan 2019 update: Eden has started moving around the home with purpose more independently.  She is now able to climb up 3 flights of stairs while holding onto the rail for support.  She is also able to come down the stairs, also holding onto the rail for support.  Eden has always been quite the acrobat and has now learned to climb on the sofa in the home and will stand while holding onto the back and jump and giggle.  She has also learned to find a low hanging disc swing in the home and climb on it.  She loves the swing and will vocalize sweet sounds as she enjoys the motion.  Eden continues to work with her guide cane and still needs encouraging and prompting to use the guide cane throughout the day.  She takes daily walks down the street with her teacher. She mostly enjoys the walks, unless she is tired, then she cries to be picked up and comforted.  Eden continues to wear her processors allowing her to hear and she often responds to the sounds of toys falling on the floor, familiar voices, and music.   She does require frequent prompting to complete activities in her classes.  Eden also continues to demonstrate some aversions to a lot of textures. This is addressed in the home through a lot of opportunity for sensory play.  She enjoys having lotion rubbed on her, sensory brush actives and water play.

Addison

Girl, born 2014
PRC
Epilepsy, delays

Listed: January 2018

Addison is a petite and precious three-year-old girl who loves to be cuddled. When Addison was younger, she could walk independently and she had good fine motor skills. She could take small things out a bottle, turn the pages of a book, and take off her own socks. Addison loved to wave hello and goodbye, clap her hands, and blow kisses. Her nanny adored her and often took her to play on the playground. Addison could speak simple words, such as mom and sister and she could understand the adult’s instruction. She was described as cooperative, active, full of expression, and adored. Addison was sometimes mischievous and would occasionally lose her temper, as any 2-3 year-old would. She enjoyed the rocking horse and playing with balls.

In April of 2016 she started having seizures and was sent to the hospital for treatment. She does have a CT scan in her file which was normal, but once Addison came back she was like a different child. She had stiff limbs and couldn’t walk or sit. She was able to make small guttural sounds and could visually track moving people. The orphanage decided to have her start rehabilitation training. Addison started receiving acupuncture and massage therapy and her muscular tension improved. She can now hold her head up when lying on her stomach and responds to toys that make sound. She knows her name and will look when called. She still makes good eye contact, but has less facial expressions than she used to. She now imitates making sounds and recognizes people. She is still attached to her favorite nanny and enjoys when the nanny spends time with her. She will cry when the nanny leaves. Her nanny spoon feeds her porridge and she often bites the soon tightly and sometimes has trouble swallowing.  The agency has received a recent update. This sweet little girl has been through so much without a family by here side. It is our hope that the perfect family for her comes forward and meets her where she’s at and helps her reach her fullest potential!

Lissa is a precious little one still waiting for her family to find her! Adored by her caretakers, she is described as a curious and happy little girl, who loves to eat! When she first arrived at her orphanage, she was small and weak. Intrigued by her surroundings she would observe the nannies and other children playing, smiling when teased or tickled. Over time, she has learned to trust the nannies and has become more and more adventurous, seeking out attention and interaction with her nannies and playing with the other children. She still loves to be tickled, held, and kissed, loves colorful toys that make sounds and likes to listen and dance to music.

 

Lissa will make eye contact and is said to be very cheerful! She is attentive when learning something new and will actively try to learn new things. Diagnosed with Down Syndrome and nystagmus of both eyes, compared to her peers her growth and development have been delayed; however, with rehabilitation training she is able to crawl, sit independently, grasp objects, and is making good progress as she continues to grow and develop. The origin of Lissa’s name, given to her by her caretakers, means ‘hope she will obtain love and be cherished.’ This little one, so clearly adored, is waiting for a family to find her who will love and cherish her delightful and adventurous little spirit! Her file is extremely detailed with a lot of wonderful developmental information and benchmarks, and we are also able to connect interested families with individuals who have visited her orphanage and were able to meet her during their visit in November 2016!

Down syndrome

Listed: November 2017

File update available from Jan 2018!  She is well-behaved for her foster family, and considered “high-functioning.”

Luna is a precious girl, born with down syndrome and a congenital heart defect-ASD. Her file is rather outdated, but some more recent pictures and videos were available! Her file notes that she went into a foster family on Oct. 31, 2014. She is said to have a good appetite and is close to her foster grandma. At the time her file was prepared, she was rolling over, sitting independently, and learning how to crawl.

Luna was even speaking simple words and knew her name at the time her file was prepared. She smiles at acquaintances, but is afraid of strangers. Luna loves to drink milk and is an active little girl who likes crowded places, listening to music, toys that make sound, and outdoor activities.

There is a $5,000 agency grant for Luna’s adoption.

Easygoing and social. A sweetheart. Socially and cognitively meeting all milestones, delayed in gross motor due to disability. Zack is starting to talk and says around 10 words. When Zack is greeted he will slowly raise his hand and wave appropriately and independently. In preschool he has tummy time and is working on reaching for toys and bringing them to himself. He is able to do this with the plastic linking chain. He is also able to pick up the chain and place it in an empty bucket with little assistance.

We are working on putting objects in and taking out while sitting up with support. Zack’s motions are slow, but he is able to put objects in and take out with some help by adult. He can sort colours. He smiles when praised for completing task. He also kicks
his legs during circle time with excitement. He independently does the motions to songs like Twinkle Twinkle and Wheels on the Bus. He can now sit independently for 25 minutes while using both hands to do activities.

This is Yia! She just turned 4 years old this year, and we are told she is doing very well. She has had surgery to treat her heart condition and spina bifida, and she recovered well after the procedures. Yia loves to interact with others and imitate actions. She is shy around strangers, but her nannies tell us she is smiley and happy around people she is familiar with. They say she is a little tom-boy who can be a little mischievous at times. The orphanage tells us her physical development is on par with her peers – she can walk, run, go up and down stairs, eat, and put on her shoes all on her own. It seems like nothing can hold Yia back! Please help this sweet girl find her forever family.

Yia has received a $5,000 Older Child Grant.

Harlow

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Congenital retinal degeneration, developmental delays

Listed: April 2017

UPDATE 2018:  There are several other photos & videos available.  Harlow desperately needs a family.   She really cannot wait years to be adopted without any medical care or better care at the orphanage to give her the stimulation she needs.  Without this care, she will sink further and further to the point she may not be able to be reached.

From the agency:  When the update came in, it was hard to read. But I powered through. Until I saw this:

 

“Please describe his/her personalities in detail? No personality”

No personality. No personality. I kept reading it over and over again. No personality. This cannot be so. Her referral, from two years ago, describes her as “giggles when she is touched; lovely when she smiles; enjoys that someone accompanies and plays with her.” Now, no personality.

In continuing to read the update, and comparing it to the two year old referral, it is pretty clear that Harlow has been forgotten. She does not go to school. She cannot perform any fine motor skills simply because she cannot see. She cannot perform most gross motor skills simply because she is given no chance to. She spends her days in her crib. Alone.

I am fairly certain that it should not read ‘no personality,’ but instead should read ‘no spirit,’ or ‘lost spirit,’ or ‘crushed spirit.’ It is not her personality that is lacking, but her spirit slipping away. She has been given up on by those around her, and has no other option but to give up on herself.

Harlow lives in dark, quiet solitude. No place for a child. She has lost hope. But we have not. We still see potential. We still see hope. And we will continue to share about Harlow until a family – HER family – sees it too.

The update is concluded with:  “Anything else you think the family should know about this child? No”

A response laden with hopelessness and doubt. A response lacking any type of love or compassion for this child. This soul whose spirit is in there somewhere, but if she stays where she is, will soon be gone forever.

The agency that currently has Harlow’s file is also offering a $1500 grant.

From a family that met him 3/16:
He’s a good size for his age. I was allowed to hold him and he let me do the “mom away”. I kept trying to get into his line of vision, but he kept averting his gaze. It seemed like he could possibly be purposefully avoiding eye contact. I was able to easily shift him to a seated position in my arms, though I don’t think he could sit unassisted.

Wade is only 15 months old. Although dressed in pink in this photo, he is all boy. He was abandoned at the orphanage gate when he was 2 days old and has been living in the orphanage ever since. Wade was born with deformed fingers on both hands and an additional minor special need. He can use his thumbs and index fingers deftly, can hold beans and toys, turn pages of a book and pick up beans. He has started to use the potty.

When his report was prepared in October, Wade was standing independently while holding onto a toy or other object. Now he is walking with support (holding someone’s hand or holding onto something). He’s not saying many words yet but he understands what’s said to him and is reported to have normal intelligence. He likes to listen to music, play with toy cars and is known to laugh out loud.

Can you be the family that Wade’s been waiting for?

Jamison now walks independently (although he is a little bow-legged) and has bowel and bladder control so it seems the surgery was quite successful. His current diagnosis is rickets, a vitamin deficiency that can be corrected with good nutrition.

Jamison has been living with a foster family where he is doing well. He likes to play with his foster grandparents and is attached to them. He likes playing with toy cars and enjoys going outside. Jamison is described as a cheerful little boy who likes to sing, talk, and is energetic. Could Jamison be the son you’ve been looking for?

Maddie

Girl, born March 2014
H-C

Listed: Jan 13, 2015

Update Feb 2018: Maddie is a sweet little girl who has developmental delays. She has not been diagnosed with anything particular, but she does appear to have cerebral palsy of some degree. She prefers to keep her head tilted to one side and tends to be very stiff, however she does great at tummy time and will lift her head up to look around. Maddie also loves to be held and can easily be soothed when you pick her up for some cuddles. Maddie does have a lot of muscle spasms, but we do not think this is seizure activity.

Maddie update 2015

She has started a muscle relaxer medicine which seems to be helping her a lot. Despite her delays, Maddie is very observant of her environment; she can often be seen looking at those around her and she has gotten good at tracking people and objects with her eyes. Maddie cannot yet sit up on her own, but when put in a crawling position, she will often move her legs forward like she is trying to crawl. She also bears weight on her legs when put in a standing position. She often is all smiles when she gets to have time in the stander. Maddie is an easy going baby, except sometimes at meal time when she does not want to eat, but she will gobble down anything that has peanut butter in it. She smiles so big when we sing songs and will make herself known if she doesn’t get to see the pictures when we are reading books. Maddie knows who her people are and prefers them over anyone else. She loves kisses and will instantly return the favor with a big smile. Sometimes when she really gets going she will let out a belly laugh that forces you to laugh as well.
