Down syndrome

Listed: August 3, 2016

VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSDRmbGeQds

From a family who met her in Feb 2019: I think she is developmentally delayed and seems to be somewhat lost in her own world. She does smile when tickled, held my hands to play a game rowing back and forth, and she giggled when I clapped her hands. She is sweet, doesn’t cry often. She doesn’t like change or new places, but is content to be in her own area and hang out. She likes other kids to be around. She does not seem to hear or see very well. She does hear somewhat because she makes noises when it is silent, but doesn’t respond much to silly noises or her name. She reached for her nanny when I was holding her. She sits, stands, and when walks while holding hands. She is fed via NG tube but they are working with her to eat by mouth and she is making progress. She is adorable and sweet and so deserving of a family. I do very much believe that she will progress with a family willing to give her the help she needs. She has some autistic tendencies like repetitive movements of her hands. Personally I do not believe it’s full autism but maybe more like sensory issues because of her hearing and sight issues.

From a family who met her in February 2017:  ” She is what would be considered “low functioning”. I would describe her as autistic, although autism is not listed in her chart. She is currently fed via tube inserted into her mouth to her stomach. She was sick with a flu type virus and sent to the hospital. Prior to that visit she was eating regularly by mouth. After a week at hospital being fed by tube she has had difficulties swallowing. She is small. The size of a thin two year old. She does gently reach for your hand and make some eye contact and interaction. She has VERY low tone and does not sit up on her own. She is gentle. She does not yell or cry according to nannies, she is gentle with other children and mainly keeps to herself. Playing with her hands.”

From a missionary who met her in December 2016:  “Strabismus. Low tone. Very cuddly and mushy! Can stand with some support. I showed them some therapy positions and exercises for them to do to get her to weight bear on her feet and I can tell that they have been doing it. Her nose and eyes were excessively yucky and I suspected that her hearing was impaired from fluid. I discussed it with her doctors and they were going to follow up on it. She makes sounds, no language. ‘Lower functioning’ (but I hate to say that). The orphanage workers love her and I think that is a problem in that they carry her about. She is in a baby house with typical peers. I believe with some medical attention and therapy she is capable of progressing.”

Nolan

nolan-2016Boy, Born September 2004

Nolan is such a handsome boy!  He needs a loving family!

Listed: August 4, 2010

From his medical records:  long-term effects of some early trauma (right-side hemiparesis), mild mental delays, seizures, flat feet, farsightedness

He has fine motor skills, understands everything, he talks but it is hard to understand him.  Nolan is very physically active, happy and cooperative, friends with other children.   A family living in the states who has 3 children, one who is significantly disabled, has taken a special interest in Nolan but cannot add Nolan to their own family due to the needs of their children. Per the family, “Nolan’s eyes and smile caught our heart. He is close in age to one of our own children. We hope this gift will enable someone to give Nolan the chance to live outside an institution.”

A family must have a completed homestudy to commit to Nolan.  Due to the size of Nolan’s grant, 50% of grant funds will be available upon receiving a travel date, and the other 50% upon passing court.

Nolan has a grant of $19,597.50 available towards the cost of his adoption!

Shaw

Boy, born 2008

Cerebral palsy
Spastic lower Paraparesis

Listed: Jan 2018

From a family who met him Nov 2018:   Shaw is a very loving boy who desperately wants a family. He hugged us repeatedly asking, “Mama, America? Papa, America?”

He speaks well, enjoys painting, and can walk with some need for support. He sweetly pushes his friend’s wheelchair and it offers stability for him and assistance for his friend. He’s been raised amongst boys much older than him and has picked up swear words but truly is a beautiful soul. He became jealous of our attention when we were talking with his younger roommate and he bit him. The facilitator would like us to note that he has a family history of mental illness and that his family should consider this in their decision. We are head over heals for this boy and honestly would have brought him home without hesitation were we approved for another adoption. Every adoptive family would be wise to consider trauma-informed parenting and to anticipate both aggression and mental illness. Please, consider whether you could be Shaw’s mama and papa.

He is so sweet, but can be a kind of “difficult” – strong-willing and stubborn. He is a smart boy. He wants to be adopted and asks to find a family for him. At the same time he will choose if he likes a family. I would recommend him to a family with older children – older than him, to show a way to behave. He may be very helpful and careful. I often can see him helping other kids with worse disabilities as he has. But he can lose his temper fast. He has a kind of mental retardation/delay. His biological mother is qualified as mentally disabled due to her schizophrenia.

Quincey is one of the most darling, endearing boys we have ever met. He is pure joy and just exudes love and affection. His little giggle is contagious. He begged us to take him home to America- he so desperately wants a family. He loves to show off how he can get into his wheelchair (which he calls his car!) himself and beams with pride. He speaks well, is very bright, and will flourish in a family.

He is so sweet, always look happy and friendly.

From a family who met her summer 2015:  This little girl is wonderful! I have never met a child with so much personality and spunk. She absolutely loves people and she is so desperate for attention. I held her for most of our visitation time one day. If I tried to put her down she demanded that I pick her up again and then she would kiss all over me. She just wanted someone to be near her. Everyday when my husband would walk through the playground gates she would get a stern look on her face and point at him and then motion for him to come to her… NOW:) She would smile from ear to ear when he acknowledged her. You can not help but laugh when you are with her. Even the cold and distant nannies couldn’t keep a solemn expression on their faces when we interacted with her.

She is in need of urgent dental care! I have never seen such decayed teeth before. I am not sure why her mouth is so much worse than all the other children but her mouth is really concerning. She can stand on her own but struggles to lift and bend her legs when she is bearing weight on them. She has a little walker that she does wonderful with. She can walk along a bench by holding on to it but we never saw her walk independently. From what I could tell she does not have any limitations of her upper body.

We never witnessed her show any aggression towards any of the children. When I would sit on the bench holding my daughter she would try to climb in my lap as well, but she never tried to harm my daughter or push her out of the way. She is very hungry for attention and for the love of a family. She would make a wonderful daughter and I am sure she would provide you with a life time of laughter.

This child has significant facial features of FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome).  This is a cautionary disclosure only.  Families should research the varying impacts of this condition.

Regina’s Apert’s syndrome does not prevent this curly-haired little girl from playing, learning, and living an active life! Regina is an intelligent and imaginative child who enjoys dolls, swings, slides – and watermelon! Could she be your daughter?

Regina needs corrective surgery for her hands, feet, and face, to help her be all she can be. A loving family would give Regina a future outside of a bleak institution.

From a family who met him in June 2014:

This calm little guy came up to me with pleading eyes for attention and is just so polite. God has heard his prayers, and now he is listed for adoption! He is not overbearing or competitive at all. Rather, he is observant and inquisitive. He is about the size of a six year-old and just so gentle. I would take him home in a heartbeat if he was available before. He takes turns riding the red wagon around the orphanage grounds as the bigger boys pull him, and he gestures politely for fresh fruit when he sees it is available. He is kind to other children. He says a few words in his native language, and listened carefully when I was giving descriptions of my family photos. I have confidence that he would do wonderfully in any kind of family, and it is obvious– he can surely reciprocate love! He enjoyed throwing balls, going on walks, playing see-saw, and listening to English descriptions. Whoever adopts this little love will be so blessed to call him a beloved son.

Hydrocephalus, Severe mental delays

Listed: August 2013

She is a very sweet and kind girl and extremely needs a family.  She will be 5 this December, so any new family may commit to her and start preparing a dossier.

She has siblings, but none are available for adoption; 2 older sisters live with birth mother and 1 younger sister has been adopted.

From a family who met her in summer 2013:
She was in my kids’ groupa.  She is the sweetest little thing and needs out of there ASAP!!!  She has the most noble quiet nature about her.  She is mentally delayed but has so much potential.  She was one of the least favored children in the orphanage and she is desperate for love.  On one occasion she wandered over to the play shelter where we were playing and was trying to eat our daughter’s cookie.  We didn’t have any extra (we brought treats for the groupa every three days or so) so my husband just picked her up to distract her and as soon as he did, she threw her arms around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder just soaking in the attention.  I can’t bear the thought of her being transferred!  She already has it bad enough.
