Esther

PRC
Down syndrome, Post-op CHD

Esther is an outgoing little girl who filled the room with her own high-energy sunshine when our staff saw her on a trip. Everything she saw delighted her- the giant rolling balls, brightly colored pipe cleaners, blocks to stack. She has Down syndrome, and seems to have good motor skills; she can run and jump, but her verbal skills are currently limited to “mama,” “baba,” and some expressive syllables. However she will also use gestures to express herself, and understand directions from her nannies.

This curious little girl likes playing on the playground and enjoys all sorts of toys. Her nanny told our staff she’s very good at imitating what others around her are doing. When they sit down to rest, she will pat their backs, and if other children are crying, she will comfort them with a cuddle. Her self-care skills are good, she can feed and dress herself. She has had surgery for a heart condition, and the doctor with our staff didn’t hear any murmurs.

I was alone in a stairwell with him and nearly fainted when he jumped from the halfway point on a flight of stairs to beat me to the bottom! I tried to scold him but he gave me one of those smiles that led me to believe he was gonna do it again on the next flight…yep… This little guy is so full of life and just adorable!!!

Xavier is capable of following instructions but requires close adult supervision and encouragement. He is gaining autonomy in his daily routine and sleeps throughout the night without waking. Xavier’s caregivers say he is honest and is capable of giving and receiving affection. At times, Xavier can become frustrated easily and this often leads to him giving up on a task. His caregivers are working with him to regulate these emotions and improve his emotional communication skills. When asked about an adoptive family, Xavier expresses interest and says he wants a family “to help him with his homework”. Xavier would do best in a home where he is the youngest child. His adoptive family needs to be able to provide him with plenty of individualized attention and support.

Kelsi and Kameron

Girl & boy, born 2005 & 2010
CO-8

This brother and sister pair share a strong bond. Kelsi is older than her brother Kameron by 5 years. She is a good student who works hard in school. She loves sports, especially soccer, and enjoys typical teenager activities such as hanging out with friends and listening to music.  These siblings have a history of abuse/trauma. More information available from the agency for serious inquiries.

Kelsi is described as respectful to authorities, calm, and kind. She is very attached to her brother and is protective over him. Kameron is the outgoing and extraverted one of the pair. He loves drawing, soccer and watching YouTube videos. Kameron presents some difficulties in speech and reading comprehension which causes him to struggle in school. He is receiving extra help in this area and is showing improvements – in fact, since learning he and his sister are candidates for adoption, Kameron has shown a greater interest and dedication to his school studies. Kelsi and Kameron need to be placed in a home together. Neither child received consistent schooling prior to entering into care so an adoptive family should be prepared to provide any necessary educational support and resources. It is important for Kelsi and Kameron to join a family with a calm and even-tempered father figure and it is best if there are no younger or vulnerable children in the home. Kelsi and Kameron dream of an adoptive family who will love and protect them for the rest of their lives.

Lizzie and Luna are sisters who have been in and out of care since they were little. Lizzie is the older sister and is described as shy and reserved. Lizzie enjoys dancing and watching cartoons. When asked what she wants to be when she grows up she says “to be a veterinarian and take care of animals”. Her little sister Luna is described to a bit more extroverted and social.

The girls have a history of abuse/trauma.  More information available from the agency for serious inquiries.  Both sisters are reportedly in overall good physical health. Due to their previous unstable life environment, Lizzie and Luna are behind in school. However, it is reported that since being enrolled in school, they are showing progress! Both girls struggle with behavior issues. Their foster mother is working with them to address these problems. An ideal family for Lizzie and Luna should be understanding of older child adoption and accepting of the unknowns in their life. An adoptive family for these girls should have ready access to the education, medical, and behavioral resources they potentially will require in order to reach their full life potential.

Minerva

Girl, born 2016
PRC
premature infant with very low birth weight, hydrocephalus (post-op shunt)

Listed: August 2019

When Minerva came she looked petite and weak, and was hospitalized for care and surgery. She has delayed physical development compared with children of her age, but after the operation her physical health is fairly stable and her motor ability improves day by day.  She is able to raise her head when lying on stomach, and turn over continuously. She likes to roll over to and fro on the mat best.  She is able to sit alone for a moment with both hands against the floor, even occasionally stand for a few seconds with both hands grasping the rail. Her muscular tension is higher, she can not coordinate and control her body well. If her name is called or someone talks beside her ear she is able to turn around her head to locate the source following the sound direction. The muscular tension of her neck has decreased obviously, therefore its turning range is much larger.

If you move a toy with bright colors slowly in front of her eyes she will follow the toy visually. She is able to grasp a toy and shake it to and fro with her hands.  She is an introverted and quiet baby, is able to lie alone for some time without noisy crying, but if she is made to practice sitting with her hands against the floor she will be very reluctant and cry aloud. Her crying is very loud and we can hear it from far away. She also likes to be cuddled by someone and her facial expressions and actions will be much richer while she is cuddled.  Her speech development is delayed. She is a light sleeper.

Molly and Mason #

Siblings: 06, 08
Diagnosis: Mason has a peanut allergy. Both children have delays


Mason & Molly lived with their birth family until 2017, when their father died. Their mother placed them in a group home and stated that she had no desire to continue caring for them. The children are very bonded to each other and live together in a small family style group home. Before entering the group home, the children had rarely attended school and did not have any type of academic foundation. Since being placed in the group home, they have attended school regularly and have worked with specialized teachers to obtain the academic skills that they had previously missed. After a year of intense work, Mason is now only requiring additional support in math and Molly is only requiring additional support in language classes (both her native language and English classes). Both children have their special needs classified as “disorder in school delays”. Both children enjoy playing outside and drawing. They both get along well with the staff and other children. Mason does have a known peanut allergy and also a dust allergy. He takes allergy medication daily.

He had hydrocephalus as an infant that was treated with a VP shunt. The shunt was later removed but he still has macrocephaly.

He is fully mobile, can feed himself, and go to the bathroom independently. Bennett wears a helmet to protect his head. He has become fond of his helmet though because he can show off his headstand.

When he is not at home, you will often find him enjoying jumping on the trampoline, playing on the playground or going on a walk. He needs redirection often because he is always on the move. Although he is generally happy, he can get frustrated when people do not do what he wants to do or if he is being asked to do something he is not ready for.

Bennett’s favorite part of school is circle time because he likes to sing songs and answer ALL the questions even if his answer has nothing to do with what was asked. He understands and speaks English as well as his native language. He is known for reciting the four seasons in English quite well. At home, he loves to ask other people to dance and sing with him too. Bennett loves to make people smile!
