Jonas is on several medications.  Jonas’s motor activity completely corresponds to the expected developmental level for his calendar age.  Although his fine motor skills need to improve further, Jonas is able to hold a pencil properly. He can inlay elements with some guidance. He puts cubes one on top of the other. He threads colored rings on a fixed stand, but not yet in accordance with their size.

There are some difficulties in attracting and keeping his attention focused. Jonas plays for a longer period of time whenever he is interested in the respective activity. Jonas orientates well in a familiar environment. He distinguishes between day and night based on his everyday routines – sleeping, meal times, rest. He recognizes the neighborhood around the foster family’s home.

Jonas is reported to have achieved noticeable progress in terms of expressing his emotions and feelings, which are becoming more diverse. He reacts appropriately to smiles and angry faces and also to the tone of voice one talks to him with. He demonstrates his love, attachment and attention for others. He greatly enjoys it when others play with him. Jonas has attached to all members of the foster family.

What a little doll Tessa is! She really needs a family — she has a whole host of medical issues.

Mental delay, rickets, strabismus (crossed eyes), epilepsy, and a speech delay. She does not talk at all. She prefers to be alone. Some of her behaviors remind autism but she was not diagnosed with it. Her epilepsy is well controlled by medications. It has been suggested that Tessa may have Angelman Syndrome, but this is not confirmed. She is able to stand and walk independently. She does not have a diagnosis of CP but she walks unsteadily. She was previously diagnosed with microcephaly.

She deserves a loving family and a chance to reach her potential, not to be hidden away in a mental institution.

From a family that met him 3/16: He’s a good size for his age. I was allowed to hold him and he let me do the “mom sway”. 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.

Addison is a petite and precious three-year-old girl who loves to be cuddled. When Addison was younger, she could walk independently and she had good fine motor skills. She could take small things out a bottle, turn the pages of a book, and take off her own socks. Addison loved to wave hello and goodbye, clap her hands, and blow kisses. Her nanny adored her and often took her to play on the playground. Addison could speak simple words, such as mom and sister and she could understand the adult’s instruction. She was described as cooperative, active, full of expression, and adored. Addison was sometimes mischievous and would occasionally lose her temper, as any 2-3 year-old would. She enjoyed the rocking horse and playing with balls.

In April of 2016 she started having seizures and was sent to the hospital for treatment. She does have a CT scan in her file which was normal, but once Addison came back she was like a different child. She had stiff limbs and couldn’t walk or sit. She was able to make small guttural sounds and could visually track moving people. The orphanage decided to have her start rehabilitation training. Addison started receiving acupuncture and massage therapy and her muscular tension improved. She can now hold her head up when lying on her stomach and responds to toys that make sound. She knows her name and will look when called. She still makes good eye contact, but has less facial expressions than she used to. She now imitates making sounds and recognizes people. She is still attached to her favorite nanny and enjoys when the nanny spends time with her. She will cry when the nanny leaves. Her nanny spoon feeds her porridge and she often bites the soon tightly and sometimes has trouble swallowing.

The agency has received a recent update. This sweet little girl has been through so much without a family by her side. It is our hope that the perfect family for her comes forward and meets her where she’s at and helps her reach her fullest potential!

He enjoys playing with his caretakers and loves attending school. Oscar can sit upright independently for an extended period of time and can even walk with the assistance of someone to steady him. He is generally weaker on his left side but is working with a therapist to strengthen his fine motor skills and is developing and growing very well.

Update early 2021:  Oscar was brought to the children’s home when he was 8 years old after it was discovered he was being abused by his father. Over the last four years he has made enormous gains in many areas. Oscar has the widest smile in the world. He’s always on the move and is able to get around extremely well despite the Cerebral Palsy that affects his right side. Independently he scoots around using his strong side. In therapy he works with a walker and enjoys walking with the support of caregivers. Oscar is also diagnosed with Hydrocephalus that is controlled with a shunt. He needs assistance in most daily cares but is able to eat independently. Oscar’s favorite activities are sensory-based, and he loves to make a mess! Oscar is learning to communicate with a picture system but will also let you know how he feels with his sounds and facial expressions. This beautiful boy enjoys playing with toys and being tickled by caregivers. He is often able to figure out how to make different toys work and is always happy to listen to music. He brings great joy to the home and loves to be in the middle of whatever is going on. A consistent, loving forever family would allow Oscar to continue growing and learning, leading him to a life full of potential.

Leonard is full of laughter and enjoys playing alone and singing songs with his friends. Leonard was diagnosed with Autism and Epilepsy, but he is taking anti-epileptic medication to manage his seizures. He receives physical, occupational, and speech therapy on a weekly basis and has made great progress in his communication skills, mobility, and behavior. Leonard can walk, run, and can even feed himself. Leonard has been able to form healthy attachments to his caregivers and would benefit from a loving family.

Update Feb 2021:  Leonard is a joyful, loving boy whose presence is life-giving. He radiates light and warmth everywhere he goes, like sunshine! You will never catch him without a smile on his face. His favorite thing to do is sing songs, and he loves it when people join in and sing along. Leonard’s favorite song to sing is, “This is the day! This is the day that the Lord has made! We will rejoice and be glad in Him!” This boy is always teaching those around him what it means to live a life of joy and gratitude. His laugh captures the attention of everyone around him. It is contagious! Leonard loves being tickled, held, and loved on. He is a big cuddler! Sensory activities like water play, swinging, and playing in the sand are Leonard’s favorite. His favorite game is when a caregiver turns her back to him and then counts to three before turning around to chase and tickle him. Light-up toys, bubbles, and cause and effect toys quickly gain Leonard’s attention. The special thing about Leonard is that he notices and pays attention to the small details that often go unnoticed by others. He finds joy in the simple things. Leonard is an active boy who can walk and run independently. He needs full assistance in most self-help areas such as: bathing, toileting, and dressing. However, Leonard can independently feed himself. He is beginning to make huge steps in his communication. Leonard has started initiating interactions with those around him, making frequent eye contact, and using pictures to communicate his needs and wants.  He also shows an understanding of basic words and directions that are in his native language by responding appropriately to them. At school, Leonard is in a sensory and communication-based classroom. He loves attending school and seeing all his friends. Leonard’s favorite part of school is singing songs with his friends and teachers.

It is evident that Leonard deeply desires to have someone who will be his forever person. He would bring so much happiness and joy into a family because of the way he unconditionally loves those around him. Leonard would thrive in a family who will love and advocate for him and his communication needs. A family that never hesitates to share with the world what a gift he is!
