Rigby

Rigby (1)

Rigby (3)Boy, born August 2013
PRC
Motor delays

Rigby is a precious little one who is 22 months old. He came into care when he was about 10 months old…wheezing, and in need of help. After some TLC from the nannies, there was improvement in his health and motor skills. He was still behind his peers, but had become a very engaging and social baby. At 17 months of age, Rigby could roll over, sit with some support, and play with toys. Rigby was not able to crawl or walk at that time. He loves to be around the other kids. The more action, the better! The nannies have noticed he has high muscular tension and uncoordinated movements. There was no formal diagnosis made in his file which had resulted from a thorough exam. Rigby is an active, loving, happy little guy who really needs a family and some good therapy to help him with his gross motor skills. He needs to come home.

Riley

Riley (1) Boy, born 2012
PRC
tethered cord release (post surgery) / cystostomy

Listed: Dec 2015

Riley is an active, and incredibly adorable, little boy who is 3 years old! He came into care when he was about 8 months old. He was already crawling, and standing with support. Riley received surgery for a tethered cord in May of 2013. After his successful surgery,when they removed his catheter, they found there was an apparent urethral injury. They performed a cystostomy (a surgically created connection between the urinary bladder and the skin which is used to drain urine from the bladder in individuals with obstruction of normal urinary flow). Riley recovered well, and was returned to his foster family. He is a smart little guy who is very social. His fine motor skills and speech are on target. Riley is attached to his foster dad, and loves to play with the other children in the foster home. Riley needs a family of his own!

OCTOBER 2017 UPDATE: Percy is a very bright and cheerful boy. He has an adventurous personality, is eager to try new things, and has an open disposition that is friendly, but not inappropriately so. He is not afraid of foreigners from overseas and was immediately interested in learning English with American volunteers in school and was one of the first to master the alphabet song. He has a good ear for language and has soaked up everything he can learn in English and he retains it (colors, shapes, animals, clothing, parts of the body, etc.). He has a great sense of humor, loves to laugh, and gives a loud “Good Morning!” and hard high five whenever he sees his English teachers. He has learned to read some characters in his native language, knows his numbers, has started basic math and knows many songs and dances from school. Percy lives with an attentive foster family who would love to see him adopted as they know that he needs medical treatment from pediatric specialists. He interacts appropriately with peers, is silly and fun with his little friends, but not unkind.

Kenny

KennyBoy, born 2013
PRC
Congenital Heart Defect

Listed: Oct 1, 2015

Kenny recently turned two years old. When he was about 4 months old, he was left at a safe haven drop spot at the local orphanage. Kenny has a heart defect (patent foramen ovale) but it is reported to be closing on its own and it’s thought that it will not require surgery. He may have bronchopulmonary dysplasia (abnormal development of lung tissue) which affects premature babies, who are born with underdeveloped lungs. [According to the internet, many babies diagnosed with BPD will recover close to normal lung function, but this takes time. Scarred, stiffened lung tissue will always not work as well as it should. But as infants with BPD grow, new healthy lung tissue can form and grow, and might eventually take over much of the work of breathing for damaged lung tissue.] Kenny received treatment for BPD in March, 2014 and now his condition is improved, with decreased incidents of shortness of breath.

Recently, the orphanage’s physical therapy team has been working on the right side of his body, which seems a little weaker than the left. He is not able to hold things in his right hand. Kenny’s mental development is age appropriate. His physical development is good – he can crawl, sit, and walk holding on. Kenny is very attached to his nannies and loves to play with the 10 children in his room. Can Kenny be the son you’ve been searching for?

Aidan has delays in his psychomotor development. He has a potential and if he receives special cares, he will be able to achieve progress. His interactions with others are on an elementary level. The child feels calm in the presence of familiar adults. He is curious and walks around in his walker reaching for different items. The toys which stimulate his tactile sensors are more interesting for him than other toys and items, for example children’s books

Landon

Boy, born 2013
PRC
Blind

Listed: Jan 2019

Landon is an amazing boy who came to a special home for the Blind in December of 2016. Landon had made so much progress with consistent love and care, but he was recalled to his orphanage this past December. When his nanny took him back to his orphanage, they told her they didn’t even have a bed for him.  Staff went back the next day and donated his bed from their care center. They also recently visited him in the orphanage and reported: “It’s clear the staff is doing their best, but is very overwhelmed. In his room there are 9 children with just one nanny caring for them and one toy to share. When we first saw Landon, he was very distant and refused to even say our names. Even with his new nannies, he was much quieter and cold than he usually was… I can only imagine what’s going on in his little mind. I held him in my arms and sang to him and, even though he refused to sing songs that we used to sing together, he seemed calm and happy. We played for a while and when I gave him a piggy back ride, our old Landon came back to us. He was calling out “go” and “faster” in English and was calling our names again, with a big smile on his face. Leaving him hurt, especially because he started asking to go home with us. Landon needs the love and support of a family now more than ever.”

When Landon first arrived at the home, he had struggled with transitions and always demanded to be held. However, he was able to work with a wonderful occupational therapist that helped him and he made great improvements. He still loves hugs, to snuggle, and is the biggest fan of piggy back rides! He especially loves singing and enjoys singing English songs like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “BINGO.” He was in our English immersion classroom and has a strong foundation in English to express himself. Thanks to having American volunteers providing an English immersion environment, he can say the days of the week, say left or right, use manners, and express his basic needs in English. His file lists him to have nystagmus and esotropia. Landon had been making big improvements in his orientation and mobility classes. He had also been making wonderful progress with his cane. Make sure to watch his videos and see him speak English and use his cane skills! Landon finds music to be very soothing. He loves when you sing to him while holding him in your arms and when you run your hands through his hair. You can feel how much he just wants to be loved!

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.

Diagnosis: Hydrocephalus, optic nerve atrophy

Evan lives in a baby house in Eastern Europe.  His current diagnoses include: Congenital hydrocephalus – VPS. Horizontal nystagmus. Atrophy of the visual nerve. Moderate muscle hypotonia. Mild mental delay. Delay in the neuro-psychological development.

Listed: October 2017

Evan is interested in what is happening around him. He turns his head in the direction of sound. When spoken to, he listens but does not fix his stare or follow bright objects with his eyes. He is attentive when playing with a musical toy or bright object.  He does not imitate actions with objects.

He catches the toy after chaotic movements of his hands while trying to coordinate them. He sometimes can place the toy from one hand in the other by himself but sometimes he needs help from an adult. His left hand is no longer in a fist and there are longer periods of time when his fingers are spread out.  

When communicating with an adult, Evan reaches out and touches his/her face and smiles. He is not aggressive but when he wants to be left alone, he will bite his hand.

When provoked, he can imitate syllables but cannot gesture or mimic.  Evan does not react when called by name and does not give a toy when asked.  

Evan is entirely dependent on the staff but will reach toward his food when being fed. 

More information, pictures and videos are available from his agency!

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.

deformed fingers

Listed: January 11, 2016

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 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?

Jonathan

PRC
Congenital heart defect; extra fingers, tracheotomy

Listed: Nov 2015

Jonathan turned two in July. He was abandoned near a garden when he was about three weeks old and has lived in the orphanage ever since. Jonathan was born with a few challenges: a congenital heart defect which was repaired when he was two months old and is thought to be resolved, extra fingers on both hands, a small ear lobe deformity, and torticollis. At 10 months old, he had surgery to reconstruct his larynx and now has a tracheotomy, which is checked every 6 months and hopefully will be removed soon. At 11 months old, he had a feeding tube placed in his stomach (possibly due to the tracheotomy) which will be removed when he’s better able to eat and drink. Jonathan’s left testicle is under-developed. The tracheotomy prevents him from speaking or making any sounds.

Jonathan is described as quiet and shy. He likes listening to music, making others laugh, and playing with toys. He is cruising around his play area and on the verge of walking independently.

Jonathan needs a special family who can see past his current medical issues and help him reach his full potential. Could you be the family for him?
