Able is a cute little boy who loves to laugh and play games with balls. Able’s caretakers say that he is strong and that he has a lovely smile. Able can walk independently and he has strong imitating abilities. He can dance to the song of ‘Do Re Me’ following the teacher and can take initiative to help his teacher put garbage in the correct place. Abel also helps the other children to put on shoes. Able is always abiding the rules. If there are children who leave their seats in class, Able takes them back to their seats to sit well, and then seats himself. One time in class, Able’s teacher was singing and doing roll call, and another child in class was not concentrating or sitting well … Able went to him and strictly asked him to sit well.

Able can go up and down stairs, throw a ball, and ride a tricycle. Every morning, Able carefully comes down the stairs for exercise. Sometimes he is far behind the teacher. The teacher will squat down, spread her arms, and give a come here sign. Able will then happily run to the teacher’s open arms.

Tad is not a picky eater and he likes to try all kinds of food. He has a very big appetite and is a good sleeper. Tad likes cartoons and toys with bright colors. Tad is pretty quiet in general and likes to play alone, but will play with other children too. Tad is obedient and likes to learn about things he is interested in. He likes to look at books and scribble too. Though Tad rarely talks, he does understand simple words and is able to do simple things he is told to do, such as putting away toys.

Update Oct 2019: Physical and intellectual aspects: Peeta has Down syndrome with good health and normal limbs that can move freely. He cannot eat large or hard food, but soft and chopped food. His physical strength is not good, since he tends to be fatigued after he completes some sports. His fine motor skills and cognition are poor, since he cannot recognize those daily necessities. In November of 2018, he was sent to the hospital for disability assessment and was assessed as Grade II intellectual disability.

His speech is so so, since he cannot speak yet, but he has a tendency to speak and utters relatively clear single tones, such as yi, yeh, ah.  His self-care ability is so so. He eats with a small spoon and drinks water with a cup. He needs assistance in the shower, going to the toilet, and putting on clothes.  In class, he is active and highly motivated, but his attention is not focused and sometimes he is out of control and runs out of his seat without approval and does not listen to the teacher’s instructions. He prefers music, dance, and games, but is not enthusiastic in physical education class, since he is easy to tire and weak in playing sports. He does well in self-training class- basically follows the teacher’s instructions to complete the training. His teachers and classmates all like him a lot, due to his active and outgoing personality and his big smile that he wears all the time. He never fights with others.

When Devan was found abandoned in September 2014 it was estimated that he was about 1.5 years old. When Devan first arrived in the orphanage, he was a very unhappy baby who was very “weak and floppy”. The orphanage staff decided it would be best if he was placed with a loving experienced foster family. His foster mother worked with him diligently, and by 3 years old he was walking and potty trained. Devan does not speak well. He occasionally calls his foster father baba (dad) and sometimes when he is playing by himself he talks to himself, but others do not know what he is saying. With that being said, Devan is able to express his needs and wants. For example, whenever he gets a treat, such as a candy bar, he will place it in his foster mother’s hands and look up at her, letting her know that he wants her to open it for him. Devan has been able to learn some gestures. He will shake a persons hand when saying hello and wave good-bye to them when they leave.

Devan is described as quiet and well behaved. He likes to play with building blocks. He also enjoys playing with neighbor kids. He recently began attending school and has made great progress there.

Would you look at the smile on this little guy? Ronen is such a happy kiddo! When you talk with Ronen’s nannies about him, they cannot help but boast about how much progress he has made! They say his learning abilities in particular have made astonishing progress! When he gets back from school he will immediately grab a book off the bookshelf and sit quietly to look at it. He is full of curiosity and is fascinated by everything he sees!

Ronen has made great progress with his motor abilities, too. He can walk alone steadily and run, and he is learning to feed himself (though he still needs a little help with that!) In terms of his language ability, Ronen’s nannies believe he has a strong desire to speak. He cannot say any words yet, but he will imitate the shape of the nanny’s mouth when she speaks. He can understand most of what is said to him and can follow instructions. Ronen gets a cold from time to time, but his general health is very good. He has not been found to have a heart condition. Could you be Ronen’s forever family?

Wanted: family who loves to laugh, play together, and has room for one more! Parker is looking for you! This handsome guy is 4 years old, and waiting. Parker has Down syndrome with the typical delays. He is very outgoing, loves to play, loves musical toys, and is very sweet. He had surgery in 2014 for a heart issue (PDA) and recovered well. His file states he has an ectopic kidney on the right side. This means the kidney sits in an abnormal position. In most cases, this causes no issues at all, but there is a chance it can lead to later kidney stones or infection. He has had no issues with this to date. Parker needs a family who will love him, and be by his side as he grows and learns.

An adoptive family for Parker John is also eligible for a $5000 matching grant from RODS Racing!
