Sydney – esotropia; agenesis of the corpus callosum

Sydney and Reagan are precious twin girls born in February of 2016. Both girls were under the care of Love Without Boundaries’ healing home until just this month. They graduated and have moved into foster care sponsored by Love Without Boundaries.

Reagan is healthy and Sydney has more complex needs. Her file says esotropia and agenesis of the corpus callosum. She had a seizure when she was younger and was put on seizure meds. She has not had seizures since, but the medicine could be causing other problems. Sydney has significant delays and feeding issues. Reagan is now on target and doing well.

These beautiful girls need to be adopted together and need a family open to Sydney’s needs, including those unknown. Agency staff have met both Sydney and Reagan, and several pictures and videos are available.

There is currently $14,000 in grants for their adoption with MAA, making the ‘agency fee’ portion just $2,000 total for both girls!

Liam

Boy, born 2008
PRC
Down syndrome, Heart Disease

This playful, adventurous, sweet boy is Liam! He is 8 years old and will absolutely steal your heart. Liam can be quiet and introverted at times, but he is generally a very friendly kid! Whenever volunteers come to the orphanage he cannot wait to take pictures with them. He seems to have an eye for photography – he loves being in pictures and taking pictures of others. He especially likes to come up with funny poses! He can play games cooperatively with other kids, and he has a lot of fun building all kinds of structures out of blocks. Liam likes to be creative and has quite the imagination!

Liam had the opportunity to visit the US as part of the Winter 2016 China Hosting Program! He spent 3 weeks playing, learning, and laughing with his host family. Here is what they shared with us:

“Liam is a very happy little guy with the most contagious giggles you’ll ever hear, and I have no doubt that he’ll bring much joy to his forever family.  He is a very energetic and active little guy who enjoys playing outside (at the playground, swinging and going down the slide are favorite activities), but he also is great at entertaining himself indoors by looking at books or “writing” (making marks on paper). He has a great imagination and especially loves to pretend to cook! He plays well with others but just as often seems to enjoy playing independently.

Liam also has a bit of a mischievous streak — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but he does sometimes need help redirecting some of his energy to a more positive activity. I did see improvement throughout his time here with his ability to be redirected, and discipline-wise, short “time-ins” where we sat together quietly on the floor seemed to be most effective.

Liam LOVES to eat…And would eat ALL the time if I let him. He is not picky at all; he’s eaten everything I’ve given him — fruit, veggies, yogurt, meat, pasta, etc. The hardest thing for him is being done with a meal/snack — even if he has had plenty to eat, he still wants more. This does seem to be getting a bit better, though.

It was fun having Liam here & seeing him come out of his shell! He definitely keeps me on my toes because he is very active/into everything, but he has a great imagination that has been fun to watch. He also really has done a GREAT job transitioning into family life/life in the US.”

You can see more photos and videos from Liam’s time in the US on his advocacy page.

Liam’s nannies tell us he is learning self-care skills. His recent health has been good, and he is not currently showing any symptoms of heart disease. Could you be Liam’s forever family?

Caroline

Girl, born 2013
PRC
Down syndrome; CHD

Listed: August 2017

Caroline is a beautiful little girl who turned four years old this summer. There is something missing though. There’s no gleam in her eyes and no smile on her face. Caroline needs a family to pour love into her and turn that sad little face into a happy one. Caroline has went through a lot without a family by her side- more than any child should have to. Caroline was born with Down syndrome and congenital heart defects – ASD, VSD, and PDA. In July of 2016, she had her ASD and VSD repaired and her PDA was closed.

Caroline is introverted, gentle, and will smile when she is feeling well. She likes listening to music. Caroline is afraid of strangers, but she does know the caretakers who take care of her and she is close with them. Caroline can sit alone and she likes sitting in the walker and moving around. She can call mom and dad and responds well to sounds around her. She is good at imitating adult’s actions and knows how to ask for objects. She can feed herself biscuits and can hold a bottle to drink milk. She is not a picky eater and her favorite foods are eggs, noodles, cakes, and steamed buns. Caroline likes when her caretakers hug and interact with her, but she doesn’t get as much attention and time to do things kids her age should be doing since she lives in a room full of children of various ages in cribs side by side. It’s our hope that she will find a family soon!

Caroline’s current agency is offering a $5000 grant towards her adoption fees.

Lois is said to really enjoy sitting in the walker or in the red skate cart. She has a ready smile that she can’t wait to show her forever family. Lois gets along well with others and is said to be active. She has a good appetite and is a sound sleeper. Lois has been in the healing home since August of 2016.  It is reported that Lois has grown beautifully. Her developmental delays seem to be very significant. She is not interactive with others, including her nannies. She is making sounds, but not words. There are still many unknowns about the extent of her delays. Agency staff met Lois in November of 2016. It is clear she has grown and changed significantly in the past year. We can’t wait to see the amazing changes she’d make in a forever family with the love and supports she needs to continue thriving!

Wendel

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down syndrome, CHD

Listed: August 2017

Wendel is cute as a button! His happy, bright personality shines through in all of his photos and videos. Wendell does not have formal language skills yet, but he enjoys communicating with others through smiles, hugs, and some simple words, such as goodbye and coming. He recognizes his name when it is called and recognizes familiar people. He has a good understanding of social interactions and can show his emotions. Wendel can follow simple commands and has strong imitating ability.

The orphanage describes him as handsome, active, and extroverted. Wendel enjoys listening to music, playing games, and playing with toys, especially rag dolls. He gets along well with others and enjoys spending time with his peers. Wendell has quick reactions and is inquisitive; if an object is hidden he will search for it rather than be upset that it is gone. Wendel can crawl quickly and is beginning to walk. He can stand and walk with someone’s help or by holding onto a railing. He has good coordination and his motor skills are developing. The orphanage says that Wendel has strong adaptability. He does not yet have bowel or bladder control.

Wendel was abandoned at one month old. He was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and two congenital heart defects, an atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale. The orphanage reports that both heart conditions have healed themselves and have sent tests and images from February, 2017 to show this. Wendel is also listed as having the cytomegalovirus (CMV) and a milk protein allergy. The orphanage says that he was never affected by CMV and that this is a mistake. We are unclear whether the listed milk protein allergy means that he is lactose intolerant or that he has PKU as he has certain PKU physical qualities and is getting low-protein milk powder and low-protein rice powder, but the orphanage denies that he has PKU. The agency has requested a PKU test to be sure.

In order to help Wendel find a family, his current agency is waiving their entire agency fee.

Adorable Wendel needs a family to bring him home. Can that family be yours?

The changes moved are amazing!

Auden is now two years old and not only is he adorable, but he is thriving! This cutie has an amazing story, but this is just the beginning.

Freddie

Boy, born 2012

Down syndrome

Listed: June 2017

Freddie was abandoned at 7 months old. He is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and funnel chest. Freddie’s medical information is 3 years old, but we do have some recent information from his orphanage. While we are working to get an updated medical for him, the recent report, photos, and videos can give a good picture of Freddie’s development. Neither the medical or report indicate any significant delays with his physical development.

Freddie’s videos show him walking steadily, kicking a ball, and playing with blocks, indicating that his gross and fine motor skills appear to be on target. Freddie reportedly can understand simple language and is seen following directions in his videos, though we are not sure if Freddie is able to speak. Freddie attends school in the orphanage, but there is no language training available which inhibits his ability to learn to speak. His intelligence is slightly delayed compared to his peers, but he could potentially make progress with the proper services and interventions.

Freddie is said to be outgoing, active, and loving. The orphanage reports that he can make new friends easily and he is seen playing with other children in his videos. Freddie has a sweet smile and pleasant demeanor. He has some self-care ability; he reportedly can do simple tasks alone, but needs assistance with other tasks such as taking a shower. The orphanage reports that Freddie can have bowel and bladder control, but he does not at this time.

Freddie needs the love and support of a family to help him thrive. Could Freddie find a home with your family?

Recently turned 4-year-old Carlie is an adorable little girl who was born with down syndrome. Carlie love colorful toys and any activities outdoors! Carlie was found in a flower bed under a bridge and came into care at approximately 4-5 months of age. At that time, she could hold her head up and put her hands in front of her eyes to look and play. By one year of age, she could babble, laugh when playing with others, sit with support, roll over, and move toys from one hand to the other. At two, she could sit independently, crawl, and turn the pages of books. She also became very attached to her caregiver. By three, she could stand while holding onto something and put objects into a cup and take them out. Carlie is currently attending a school inside her orphanage. She gets along well with the other children, but is quiet and uses words like aunt and teacher, but not clearly. As of fall, she was not yet potty trained. When Carlie meets new people, she will wave her hands and blow them a kiss- a little charmer! When others are showing her attention, she will smile and approach them on her own. She is a well-behaved little girl.

Listed: May 2017

Precious Azalea is a 1.5-year-old baby girl who is quiet and introverted. She likes it when her foster parents hold her outside while on a walk. Azalea loves to babble to greet familiar faces and voices, but is afraid of strangers. She also loves the sounds of bells and music. If she is crying and music is turned on, she will stop crying immediately and look around for the source of the sound with her eyes open wide. Azalea does not like to take a bath-she will scream before even getting wet. Her foster parents have to be patient and comfort her until she adjusts to the bath. Azalea’s file was completed when she was 8 months old- at that time she was not able to crawl or stand, but could sit with support. She was using facial expressions and babbling to respond to her foster family talking to her. Azalea responds to her name being called, looks for the source of the sound, and recognizes familiar people and objects.  She is newly listed and we’re hoping her family sees her and can bring her home while she’s still so young!

Sheena is the sweetest four-year-old girl around! Agency staff have met her and said that she is very smart and pleasant. Sheena is also a favorite of her caretakers, giving her a lot of extra attention and love.

She was sitting independently between 9-11 months of age and was crawling by one. She started walking and speaking, though unclear, at age two. By three, she was a confident walker and could use a cup to drink. She’s a good eater and is not picky about food. Congee and meat are her favorites. She can go to toilet on her own and has few accidents. She does need a diaper at night. Sheena can also dress herself and put on her own shoes. When she was little, she got burned by hot water so she is still afraid of taking a bath.

In January of 2016, Sheena started receiving schooling inside the orphanage. The teachers quickly learned that she liked the toy numbers. They taught her how to string the toy numbers. After three months, Sheena made big progress in her language, gross motor, and social skills. She has learned words like teacher, ayi, chair, mine, etc. When talking with her, she responds with sounds like “en, oh, hao”. She likes to listen to music and will follow the beat by clapping her hands. She also tries to sing to the music. Sheena can walk upstairs and downstairs by herself and can now run faster. When she sees other kids fall down, she will walk over to help the child get up. If other kids get hurt, she will go over and blow on it to soothe the pain. In September of 2016, Sheena showed good progress with her cognition. She focuses in class to learn with other kids. Sheena likes being active and being held. She enjoys imitating, playing with toy cars, and playing hide and seek.

The agency which currently has Sheena’s file has a $5,000 grant available for her adoption, as well. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.

PRC
Down syndrome, congenital heart defect

Listed: May 2017

Eden is an adorable little four-year-old girl! She was born with down syndrome and congenital heart defects – VSD, double outlet of RV, and pulmonary stenosis. Eden is described by her caretakers as active, sweet, and very pretty. She loves music with a quick rhythm and toys that make sounds. She also enjoys snuggling with her caretakers and often called out mama when she needed something. Her file is outdated, but at the age of two, Eden was walking, needed reminders to go to the bathroom, was holding her own food, and was using single words. She loves to giggle when she is playing and when she is happy. Eden’s agency has received a written update, new pictures, and precious new videos!

Meadow

Girl, born 2014
PRC
Down syndrome, Congenital heart defect

 Listed: May 2017

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!

The agency has videos and additional photos available. There is a $5,000 agency grant for Meadow’s adoption with the current agency. Other agency grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances.
