Meet Penelope! She’s currently 8 years old (in July 2022)

Good thing is that Penelope is in good health and that she is strong girl. She is sweet kid and charming in her own way!

Down Syndrome: Generally, Penelope’s development is slowed down in all areas. Her cognitive skills are more affected and they could be described as severe mental retardation. This is happening for two reasons, first one is Down syndrome and everything that goes with it, the second reason would be, her transfer to, and her stay in social institution, hadn’t helped her to develop her potentials.

June 2021 Written Update:

Her cognitive abilities match with a two and a half year-old kid. She has developmental delays. Her language skills and cognitive skills are low. She can dress and undress herself, put on and take off her shoes alone, eat by herself, and cover herself with a quilt. She is potty trained. She knows how to go alone to the bathroom or how to ask someone to take her there. She is stubborn. When someone criticizes her, she will be annoyed and sometimes cry. Her gross motor skills are fine. She can run, jump, climb stairs. She can walk independently horizontally on the balance beam. She can eat by herself with a spoon. She does not know to write, but she can draw and color. She can say some letters and repeat a few words. She can follow simple instructions. She loves to play with the other kids her age. She is very active and happy when playing with her peers. She does not have a special attachment to someone, but she has a very good relationship with all the kids.

Updated from 2019: Coco is an adorable and smart little girl, who loves to interact with others! Coco learns so much by observing her nannies. 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!  The videos below are from a 2021 update!

Meet Penny! She is a lovable and charming little girl who is 3 years old. Penny came into care when she was about 6 months old. After a few months at the orphanage, she was placed with a foster family, where she has blossomed!

Penny was born with Down syndrome. She has an ASD, which as of her report in 2017, had required no treatment. Penny has the typical delays seen with Down syndrome, but has accomplished a lot since joining her foster family. She is especially close to her older foster brother, and waits impatiently for him to come home from school. Sadly, even an excellent foster family is not a permanent solution for an orphan. Penelope needs a family who will become hers forever. This sweet little one is waiting!

Cecelia is a precious little girl! She has had surgery to correct her heart defect. Cecelia is an active little girl who loves participating in interactive games! At the time her file was prepared, Cecelia liked to crawl around on the ground and explore objects in the room. She could sit up and interact with other children her age. Cecelia’s caretakers were working with her on standing and walking at that time as well. Cecelia makes sounds and laughs a lot. She likes to be outside and observe others. When she sees her main nanny, she will wave her hands and scream excitedly! Cecelia was able to hold some food to feed herself and was working on feeding herself with a spoon at the time. She likes to eat apple puree, bananas, and grape puree. She was reportedly able to swallow, but had trouble with hard foods at the time of her report. Cecelia does not care for bitter foods. She sleeps on her stomach, is good at imitating adult motions, and loves to wave goodbye!

Cecelia has adorable MUST-WATCH videos from 2019 and significant grants to help an adoptive family bring her home! It is our hope that her forever family finally sees her and says YES!

Leigha is a sweet little girl. In July of 2015, when she arrived to her current care center, she could sit alone and was said to be smiley, but also cried a lot. At the time her file was prepared in 2017, she could stand up by holding onto something. Leigha liked to scoot across the floor on her bottom to get a toy she wanted to play with. She likes playing with colorful toys, dolls, and with other children. When she listens to music, she will shake her body to dance. When she was called by her caretaker, she could turn her head to find the sound source. Leigha smiles when people amuse her and she can understand her caretaker. She has a good personality overall, but is sometimes obstinate. Leigha is introverted, shy, and cries easily, but is as cute as can be. She has a good diet and is said to be a steady sleeper. We’re hoping to be able to get an update for Leigha and that she won’t wait much longer!

Update, Jan 2020: She still cannot stand or walk independently. She needs someone for support. Just an aside — With all the layers and slippers she is wearing, it would be hard to learn to walk. Her area doesn’t have centralized heating and she is in a foster family where they may be doing a lot for her too.

Update Oct 2019: She can now crawl, but she cannot walk. She can stand alone and can squat. I think she would be able to talk, but she is scared. Her health is good. She is a bit chubby, she needs to be fed often. She is very interested in music. When music is playing, she can keep up with the rhythm/tempo and will try to jump to the music, but her feet don’t get off the ground. She can’t speak yet, but can recognize words. She can understand simple commands. She is warm towards people. Her foster parents are elderly. They only sent over one picture. The rest are from a recent home visit. Occasionally, she will say “baba” or “mama” and she says it very clearly. But, she doesn’t make any requests when she calls out. She knows her body parts and her 5 senses. She understands the meaning of “no.” She currently has 16 teeth.

Eliza is a delightful little one; she is such a happy and social little girl. Eliza was born with Down syndrome, and has the typical motor delays. She has had surgery to correct her heart issues; ASD/VSD/PDA, and has recovered well. Eliza lives with a foster family, to whom she is very close. She loves to play, and loves toys that make music. She is spunky, sweet, and waiting for a family of her own!

There are many recent photos and videos in her file! ​

Her teacher gives her attentive care, often holding her and talking to her. She also takes Lark outside to enjoy the sunshine. As of November of 2017, she could scoot around and walk while holding onto something for support. She was babbling, but not yet saying words. Lark does understand and can follow simple instructions. Her teacher is working hard with her on language, recognizing objects, and physical activities. The agency is hoping for an update soon.

Lark has a $1,500 agency grant for her adoption with a specific adoption agency. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions.

Lissa is a precious little one still waiting for her family to find her! Adored by her caretakers, she is described as a curious and happy little girl, who loves to eat! When she first arrived at her orphanage, she was small and weak. Intrigued by her surroundings she would observe the nannies and other children playing, smiling when teased or tickled. Over time, she has learned to trust the nannies and has become more and more adventurous, seeking out attention and interaction with her nannies and playing with the other children. She still loves to be tickled, held, and kissed, loves colorful toys that make sounds and likes to listen and dance to music.

Lissa will make eye contact and is said to be very cheerful! She is attentive when learning something new and will actively try to learn new things. Diagnosed with Down Syndrome and nystagmus of both eyes, compared to her peers her growth and development have been delayed; however, with rehabilitation training she is able to crawl, sit independently, grasp objects, and is making good progress as she continues to grow and develop. The origin of Lissa’s name, given to her by her caretakers, means ‘hope she will obtain love and be cherished.’ This little one, so clearly adored, is waiting for a family to find her who will love and cherish her delightful and adventurous little spirit! Her file is extremely detailed with a lot of wonderful developmental information and benchmarks, and we are also able to connect interested families with individuals who have visited her orphanage and were able to meet her during their visit in November 2016!

Emery is well adapted to her daily routine in the orphanage. She eats three meals a day but doesn’t have a big appetite and doesn’t care for snacks or desserts. The orphanage staff make efforts to enrich her days to help her development by watching TV, listening to music, playing with toys and taking her out for outdoor activities.

Her motion development is slightly delayed compared to other children but staff feel this is due to her being in orphanage life and not with a family. They say her opportunities are more limited there although she does participate in rehabilitation training in the institute. At the time of her report she was 3.5 years old and could sit independently, hold toys to play and walk holding the wall. She was described as being extroverted, well liked and having a ready smile. Emory could take off her socks and pants and was in good physical condition, but wasn’t yet speaking. Orphanage staff hope she will be adopted by a family who can educate her and help her grow up to be a happy girl.

Maya entered a foster family in September of 2014. She spends 5.5 hours a day in the grandmother’s class at the orphanage, where she receives physical therapy and developmental training. The rest of the time she is with her foster family and she is very close to her foster mother. Maya was born with Down syndrome and anal atresia (stoma fistula on the abdomen).

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!

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!
