Girls, born 2007 & 2008

Down syndrome

South Asia – Pacific

Listed: Sept 2019

Jilly is the older sister, and she has Down syndrome.

Jilly and Justine are beautiful sisters! Jilly has been receiving occupational therapy and attends special education classes. Jilly is a cheerful and active child. She can complete activities when motivated and can focus when playing and singing. Jilly can fold her clothes and organize them in her cabinet. She can also make her bed and do other simple household chores, such as cleaning her room and stacking chairs. Jilly can perform basic self-care activities, such as combing her hair, washing her hands, and brushing her teeth. She can toilet independently. Jilly loves to hug her caregivers and other children!

Justine was born in 2008. A psychological assessment in 2014 noted her to have a learning disability. She underwent another psychological assessment in 2015 and the results stated that her intellectual capacity is above average. Justine was enrolled in a regular school and was noted by her teacher to have good leadership skills. In 2017, Justine was recommended by her neuro-developmental pediatrician to attend special education classes, where she will be given individualized learning instructions tailored to fit her needs. In 2018, Justine attended mainstream school and completed 2nd Grade. Justine enjoys singing and dancing. She can easily make friends, but easily gets upset when she is teased or when her toys and other personal belongings are taken away from her. Justine is attentive and loves to talk and take part in conversation. She enjoys outdoor play.

Jilly and Justine are aware that they are sisters and would love to be adopted together. Justin’es concept of adoption is having a new family that will take care of her and her sister, Jilly! We know there is a wonderful family out there for Jilly and Justine!

There is a $2,000 agency grant for Jilly and Justine’s adoption.  Jilly and Justine need a family with an approved home study to be able to hold their file or move forward with adopting them.

Kelsi and Kameron

Girl & boy, born 2005 & 2010
CO-8

This brother and sister pair share a strong bond. Kelsi is older than her brother Kameron by 5 years. She is a good student who works hard in school. She loves sports, especially soccer, and enjoys typical teenager activities such as hanging out with friends and listening to music.  These siblings have a history of abuse/trauma. More information available from the agency for serious inquiries.

Kelsi is described as respectful to authorities, calm, and kind. She is very attached to her brother and is protective over him. Kameron is the outgoing and extraverted one of the pair. He loves drawing, soccer and watching YouTube videos. Kameron presents some difficulties in speech and reading comprehension which causes him to struggle in school. He is receiving extra help in this area and is showing improvements – in fact, since learning he and his sister are candidates for adoption, Kameron has shown a greater interest and dedication to his school studies. Kelsi and Kameron need to be placed in a home together. Neither child received consistent schooling prior to entering into care so an adoptive family should be prepared to provide any necessary educational support and resources. It is important for Kelsi and Kameron to join a family with a calm and even-tempered father figure and it is best if there are no younger or vulnerable children in the home. Kelsi and Kameron dream of an adoptive family who will love and protect them for the rest of their lives.

Lizzie and Luna

Girls, born 2008 & 2011
CO-8

Lizzie and Luna are sisters who have been in and out of care since they were little. Lizzie is the older sister and is described as shy and reserved. Lizzie enjoys dancing and watching cartoons. When asked what she wants to be when she grows up she says “to be a veterinarian and take care of animals”. Her little sister Luna is described to a bit more extroverted and social. Luna enjoys dancing, playing pretend kitchen, and playing with her dolls. The sisters love to go on outings with their foster family, watch movies and play games.

The girls have a history of abuse/trauma.  More information available from the agency for serious inquiries.  Both sisters are reportedly in overall good physical health. Due to their previous unstable life environment, Lizzie and Luna are behind in school. However, it is reported that since being enrolled in school, they are showing progress! Both girls struggle with behavior issues. Their foster mother is working with them to address these problems. An ideal family for Lizzie and Luna should be understanding of older child adoption and accepting of the unknowns in their life. An adoptive family for these girls should have ready access to the education, medical, and behavioral resources they potentially will require in order to reach their full life potential.

Molly and Mason #

Siblings: 06, 08
Diagnosis: Mason has a peanut allergy. Both children have delays


Mason & Molly lived with their birth family until 2017, when their father died. Their mother placed them in a group home and stated that she had no desire to continue caring for them. The children are very bonded to each other and live together in a small family style group home. Before entering the group home, the children had rarely attended school and did not have any type of academic foundation. Since being placed in the group home, they have attended school regularly and have worked with specialized teachers to obtain the academic skills that they had previously missed. After a year of intense work, Mason is now only requiring additional support in math and Molly is only requiring additional support in language classes (both her native language and English classes). Both children have their special needs classified as “disorder in school delays”. Both children enjoy playing outside and drawing. They both get along well with the staff and other children. Mason does have a known peanut allergy and also a dust allergy. He takes allergy medication daily.

Hailey and Hugh

Sibling Pair, ages 11 & 8
T-2sibs

Hailey has developmental delays and vision issues

Hailey & Hugh need to be together!!

Listed: April 2017

These siblings are unfortunately living apart, as the children are housed by age and gender at the facilities. They miss each other a lot and they’re both always happy to see each other when they can get together. They want to be together long term in the same adopted family.

Hailey is described by her caregivers as mild, positive, vivacious and well-behaved. She’s small for her age, wears glasses and has a small vocabulary. She’s easily distracted but has made great improvement in comprehension. Hailey’s a warm-hearted girl who finds pleasure in helping others. She remembers her birth family but is excited to start a new life with an adoptive family—as long as she isn’t separated from her brother.

Hugh is filled with curiosity about the world, often asking “why?” He speaks well and is reported to cooperative and able to follow rules. Like his big sister, he’s easily distracted but he works hard on his schoolwork. He attends primary school and mixes well with the other kids his age. His caregivers describe him as a good boy, energetic and usually happy. He’s been very clear he wants to be adopted with his sister.

There’s a $4000 grant for families who qualify to help with adoption expenses, available from the agency.  Video is available.

They appeared to be very hyper, having serious behavioral issues and mental delays. They changed families during hosting program because first hosting family couldn’t handle them.

Their sister can be adopted separately from them but adoptive family needs to have approval for three children in order for us to be able to separate them. She lives in a different orphanage from them.

Anna and Alex #

anna alex

Anna and Alex, twins 2014

Listed: Dec 1, 2016

Anna has cerebral palsy and, as a result, is severely delayed. She and her brother were born very early, each weighing around 2 pounds. Anna is unable to stand. While Anna does vocalize, she is unable to articulate words. She has severe cognitive delays, and it appears unlikely that she will be able to make these up. Anna smiles when she is touched and is willing to play games, but she tires quickly and requires constant stimulation to stay engaged. She is unable to feed herself and is fed through a bottle.

Anna’s twin brother, Alex, has bronchopulmunal dysplasia, cerebral leukomalacia (brain injury from birth), and an intestinal hernia which will likely require surgery. He is described as “lackadaisical” and “good-natured.” Alexander is able to walk 5-6 steps before falling over, and has generally uncoordinated fine motor skills. He does vocalize, but his speech patterns are underdeveloped. The assessment from Bulgaria states that with the appropriate interventions, Alexander could make up for some of his delays, but that his capabilities will always be limited.

UPDATE: 2019

Alex and Anna are twins who are living together in foster care.
Anna has spastic CP that impacts her entire body. When lying on her back, she can raise her right hand to reach for a toy. With some assistance, she can roll onto her stomach and once there, can hold her head up and track objects. She turns her head to sounds. She vocalizes and smiles when she is happy. Sometimes, she reacts to her name by turning her head when her name is called. She will respond to an adult talking to her by making sounds back. She raises her arm when someone waves hello or goodbye to her. She can follow some very simple commands that she repeatedly hears.

Alex also has a diagnosis of CP. Alec is able to walk, though his report indicates that he has a flat food and a possibly shortened thigh length on one leg. He attends an early intervention program, where he is receiving therapy and basic preschool services. He can only say a few words, but is learning to use PECS (picture exchange communication) and is up to PECS level 4, which is the ability to use picture cards to build sentences. He can sort by shape and color, stack blocks, and is learning beginning handwriting skills (tracing, drawing lines, etc). He plays with toys appropriately. He is showing imaginative skills (tucks a baby doll into bed, feeds stuffed animals, etc). He is classified as having a mild intellectual delay based on preschool testing.

Photos and videos are available through the agency.

Listed February 22, 2011

New pic Jan 2017.

Simeon is a beautiful Roma child with dark hair and big brown eyes.  He is significantly delayed, and diagnosed with cerebral palsy.  We are trying to get more information on his social history.  Simeon is a fraternal twin, whose sister has already been adopted.

Simeon is described as mostly non-verbal, and is not able to walk on his own.  There just seems to be so much potential for him in a family environment.  He is already an outcast because of his darker skin and will be left institutionalized – and likely bedridden — if not adopted.

From a family who visited with him in 2011:  Simeon is barely responsive to stimuli, but I believe that could change if he received regular, loving attention.  I didn’t observe any of the orphanage workers spending much time interacting with him.  There were times that I was able to get him to smile and grip my hand.  After a few days, he was even able to clap!  But most of the time he is staring off in any direction and seems completely unable to control most of his movements.  He was always either lying down or propped up in a sitting position.  I never heard him speak.  I also never heard him cry or fuss. Overall, a very calm child.

Married couples only, larger families and older parents welcome.

Update from someone who knows them very well: We have known them for over 4 years and visited their orphanage over 20 times.  They have autism and are non-verbal and at this time.  They were just transferred to an adult institution right after their seventh birthday.  The boys are one to one and arms length for bolting and mouthing; both at this time are not toilet trained and are on medication to assist with hyperactivity and self injurious behaviors.  Both boys are extraordinarily special to me, however, they must go to a family prepared for all of their needs.  They are not deaf.

Clayton, April 2015

Twin boys, born August 2010

Updated pictures and medical info April 2015

Clayton — Cerebral palsy. taking anticonvulsant therapy

His twin brother, Caleb, passed away in 2017

Listed: Oct 16, 2013

From someone who met them in 2013:
(Brother 1)  He is in with a much younger groupa. He goes outside twice daily when it is nice, and this orphanage does physical therapy five times a week. He makes eye contact, but is in his own little world until you talk directly to him. He appears kind of zoned out, and then I said his name and stroked his cheek and his whole body came to life, just longing to be touched and tickled. He arched his back and smiled, but I wasn’t allowed to pick him up. He has grown too long for his stroller. I put a velcro wrist rattle on him and he purposefully moved his left arm to interact with it immediately. He is well nourished there, but he will really need a mama’s touch to help him grow. His teeth look like they are in great shape. He uses his arms, but I did not see him move his legs, though he was certainly wiggling from one side to the other and is a kid who would really like to be on the move! He is not in the same groupa as his brother. Kids are generally grouped by what they are eating, and his brother was in the groupa for kids doing formula and purees. I think he may be on only formula still. It was so hard to leave him behind!

(Brother 2)  Several days later, I saw who I thought was the same child in a different stroller, but the nannies corrected me when I called him by his brothers name, slowly communicating that this was his twin brother. They look SO much alike! The first day I saw him, he was badly in need of a diaper change and I showed the nannies. He was laying flat on his back in the outdoor playpen, and when I came back to return my daughter to the groupa, he was still there an hour later, unchanged in diaper and position. The next day I saw him, though, one of the sweet nannies was playing music on her ipod, and he was laying close to her in a stroller. Although he didn’t interact with the music, he was very quick to respond to my voice. The second I stopped talking, he stopped smiling and zoned out again. But, he was so responsive to touch and baby talk!  He pushed his body around in the stroller with his legs AND arms, and had a lot of good neck strength. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he is only being limited by the assumptions of his diagnosis. As we left our daughter’s groupa for the last time, we saw him being lovingly carried down to his physical therapy appointment. I think it was a sign of good things to come for these boys!

Neither boy is using meaningful speech, though both babble. Videos available. Wonderful region to adopt from, especially if one parent needs to stay alone for a time.

Hunter, Forest and Ridge

30809005259_130809005814 30809010039

 

Hunter-001ForestRidge-001Brothers – they need to be adopted together!

They are said to be “very good boys”!

Listed: August 11, 2013

Hunter, The oldest, was born in March 2004:  Hyperkinetic disorders/Hyperkinetic conduct disorder; Nonorganic sleep disorder/Emotional sleep disorder; Benign intracranial hypertension; Other specified diseases of gallbladder; Flat foot

Hunter likes to eat a lot. He and his brother Forest have a lot of energy. He really likes to do arts and crafts and play games. Most of the time he has a very sweet disposition. He is very keen to interact with adults. That being said if an adult is too rough with him things will start to escalate. If an adult tries to swat at him or restrain him in someway he may attempt to bite. Hunter can speak pretty well but he can’t always communicate what’s going on with his emotions. Hunter responds best to strong male figures. An attentive dad is key to a positive adoption for him. He is in grade 4 here but he can’t read, write, do math, or anything like that right now. He is schooled by himself and school mostly consists of arts and crafts. He is not unintelligent but very delayed. He likes soccer. He would be great in an attentive family where he and his brothers will get much attention and where they will be by far the youngest children. I would adopt him myself if I could be as focused on him and his brothers as he needs a dad and mom to be and if we had the space for them along with our current 3. He enjoys picking fruit and cleaning in the orphanage. He is never been far from the orphanage and he is interested in coming to America. He has communicated that he really wants to come to America and really wants a papa.

Forest, the middle boy, was born in Aug 2006:
Mild mental delays; speech disorder

Forest likes to eat a lot. He does school the same way his brother Hunter does. He is considered to be in the second grade. Very sweet but also very active. Like his older brother, he needs to need a lot of attention to keep him from unintended harm. He likes to be outside. He has minor institutional self harming tendencies like scratching himself to leave marks. He does not do that a lot though. Forest loves to give hugs and kisses and hold hands with the adults.

Ridge, the youngest brother was born in Aug 2008
Stenosis of pulmonary artery; currently he does not require surgery. Tuberculin skin test – positive?

Ridge likes to clean. He was mopping the floor with an adult sized mop as I wrote this. He is a very small but sweet boy. He’s a very peaceful and charming child. He is not in school yet but he seems to be the most intellectual of his brothers. He will likely do better in school then his brothers when he gets the chance. He is so cute it is hard to imagine him spending another day without a family. When the boys orphanage shuts down Ridge will be separated from his brothers for several months because he is not old enough to go with his older brothers. I expect this will be a very traumatic time for him, so if a family could come for him as soon as possible that would be best. No family should hesitate to adopt these children as long as they are available to give the time and attention that these children deserve. If that is done the children will flourish.
