Melody is a little peanut who couldn’t be cuter! Melody knows the nanny who takes care of her and is very close to her. She is described as smiley, shy, and energetic. She recognizes the other children in her room and enjoys playing with them. Melody feeds herself with a bottle and likes to eat crackers too. She is afraid of strangers, but will actively ask for hugs from the nanny who cares for her. Being held is one of her very favorite things! Melody will let her nanny know she is not happy if the nanny holds another child first or is too busy to hold her. Melody reacts when called and can understand simple instructions. She is now saying some single words and will say a sentence every once in a while, but it is hard to understand. She is finally walking and appears very small for her age.

Agency staff have met her multiple times and note that she is sweet, has a precious laugh, doesn’t cry much, is often happy, and is a good sleeper. One of our traveling families even had the blessing of meeting her last year. Melody will surely bring so much joy to her forever family!

Journey is a beautiful little girl with a warm smile! Journey is not a picky eater and can feed herself, but won’t necessarily eat as much as she should so she does get some help to make sure she is eating enough to fill her up. She really likes milk and fruits. Journey can walk stably and can go up and down stairs using the handrail. She is said to be calm and cautious. Sometimes if she thinks the stairs, for example, are dangerous she will sit on the stairs and move down with her hands and feet. Journey’s favorite toys are toy dogs and the red plasma car. Because she doesn’t speak much, Journey has trouble expressing her needs and does need some assistance with toileting. She communicates with her gorgeous eyes and through gestures and actions. When people greet her, Journey smiles happily. Journey is an affectionate little girl. For a period of time, she would go down one set of stairs to the office on the second floor when the caretaker was not looking. She would appear suddenly behind one of the workers there and pat the worker. That worker would sometimes then go visit her activity room and Journey would come forward immediately and hug the worker tightly. Her hugs are said to be so tight they are like bear hugs. We can’t wait to see what lucky family is going to be blessed to not only have this little girl in their home and family, but to see those smiles and receive those bear hugs every day!

An update from 2016: Rhiannon is a quiet, tiny girl, who appears quite small for her age, and very thin. She has a heart condition, which she has not had surgery for. The nannies say she eats a normal amount, so they are not sure why she’s so thin. When agency staff visited in April 2016, she sat up very stably and was alert, frequently nodding her head and rocking. Caregivers say she doesn’t often reach for toys, but she will react when the nannies make faces or tickle her. She can stand up with support from her nanny under her hands. In the baby walker she can move around very quickly! She will scoot around on her bottom as well to get around, but doesn’t crawl yet. So far she’s not babbling, just making sounds. She does turn to sounds as well.

One of her caregivers shared this sweet story in her file: “I asked her “Coco, Where are your ears?” She didn’t seem to know. I touched her ear with my hand and told her “Coco’s ears are here.” Then I pulled my own ears as well and repeated telling her “ear, ear.” Then after about three minutes of playing, I asked her again “where are Coco’s ears?” She thought a while, looked at me, walked to me, and pulled my ears. We all laughed! Then I asked again “Where are Coco’s ears?” She then withdrew her hands and touched her own ears.” Coco goes to preschool in her orphanage. Right now she is learning how to count and recognize Chinese characters. She can say simple words and phrases. She plays well with other children and she can follow her nanny’s instructions.

MANY VIDEOS are available of this darling girl!

Meadow is a beautiful girl who was found as a newborn and was moved into a foster family in May of 2016. She adapted to her foster family quickly and has a good routine schedule, including a daily nap. Meadow has a good appetite and is not a picky eater. She loves the snacks her foster mother gives her between meals. Meadow takes a bath twice a day in the summer and once in the winter, generally before going to bed. She is currently in diapers. Meadow was born with down syndrome and heart defects (ASD, VSD, and PDA). In November of 2015, she underwent surgery to repair her VSD and ASD and had a PDA ligation with tricuspid valvuloplasty. Her file mentioned her receiving a temporary pacemaker. In September of 2016, she had a brain MRI- there were no abnormal findings, but they did note that she had bilateral mastoiditis. Also at that time, she had genetic testing done and it was found that Meadow had alpha thalassemia (meaning she is just a carrier). A couple days later she had a mass on her neck looked at and nothing abnormal was found.

Meadow is not speaking yet, but she can turn her head when her name is called. She likes playing with adults and will often babble happily when playing alone. Meadow can sit and turn over on her own. She uses gestures to communicate- such as purposely putting her foot on her foster mother while lying on the bed or tugging at her clothes or wrist when she sees people eating. Meadow enjoys playing with dolls and giggling. A family will be blessed to have this little angel as a part of their family!
