Beautiful Marielli has a contagious giggle. She loves to play with her foster mommy and giggles every time a toy block falls from her head. Like most toddlers, she wants to play the game on repeat. She shows how she wants to play again by grabbing her foster momma’s hand and motions to do it again. One of her favorite times of day is bath time! The sweet girl loves to splash and splash.

She is social, active and definitely not shy. She is often comforted by being held and snuggled when she is upset. Marielli was fortunate to be a part of Love Without Boundaries cleft exchange in 2012 and has had her cleft palate repaired already. Her file states that she congenital cleft palate (now repaired) and poor brain development. She is sure to be an absolute joy to a family. Who is ready to giggle and splash with Marielli?

An update received in the fall of 2015 states that Marielli is now living with a foster family. She is reported to be a healthy little girl who rarely gets sick. Compared to children of the same age, Marieli is still very delayed. She does crawl, stand, and walk with assistance. Marielli is cooperative with her caregivers, but rarely talks and says few well-pronounced words. She is happiest when her caregivers play with her, offer her toys, or hug her. Marielli has quite an appetite and eats a wide range of foods. There is a small hole in her palate, so some foods are difficult for her to eat. It is said that she is receiving rehabilitation training, but no details were given. Marielli has a fear of meeting strangers and her caregivers say she has an introverted personality.

Lucetta is an adorable little girl who is 3 years old! She came into care as a newborn, and lives in the orphanage. Lucetta has esotropia which is the “turning in” of her eyes. It can be corrected with glasses, temporary patching, or outpatient surgery. Lucetta’s gross motor skills were delayed as of her report (done when she was about 16 months old). She was not crawling or pulling to stand at that time, and an exam suggested she may have CP. Lucetta is a lovable little one, and enjoys playing with toys. Lucetta is ready for her Mommy and Daddy to come and get her!

Grace was abandoned by the train station when she was ten days old and has been living in an orphanage ever since. Grace was born with a cleft lip and palate, for which her first surgery will occur in May. She also had a congenital heart defect which was corrected this past summer. She does not take any cardiac medication but she sometimes pants and her lips become blue after strenuous exercise so her cardiac issues may not be fully resolved.

Grace is reported to have normal intelligence, potty trained, and she walks and runs just fine. She dresses herself, speaks in 3 – 5 word sentences, likes to sing and play games with other children.

Update from 2016: At 6 years old Grace enjoys looking at books, playing with her friends and has a favorite stuffed toy. She has great self help and fine motor skills, she can dress herself, including jacket and shoes, she can draw lines and shapes. She is an extroverted girl and she really enjoys playing games with her peers. She has many favorite foods, dumplings, noodles, fruit and many more. She had a surgery to repair her cleft lip already, but her cleft palate has not been repaired yet. She studies preschool, she can sing, dance, draw, string beads, and put clothes on dolls. Her upper limbs are flexible, she can walk and run, but not very steadily. She is active and gets along well with other kids, and often helps other younger kids.

Sadie is a delightful and bubbly little girl at 5 years old! Her photos & info are outdated. She came to the orphanage as a baby, and was found to have a cleft lip and palate, as well as a vision impairment. Sadie had her cleft lip repaired in 2011, but we are unsure if her palate has been repaired. Part of her file suggests it has, but there are no surgery reports for a palate repair. Sadie is a doll…the nannies all love her! She loves to play on the slide with the other kids, and ride the rocking horse. Sadie’s fine motor skills are good, however, at 3 years old she was not walking unassisted. She was crawling at that time.

At the first sight, we were impressed by her black eyes. Her eyes were big and black, which seemed to talk. As she grew up, we found her hair was beautiful, black and soft. Till now we do not cut her hair. The caretaker likes dressing her and do various hair style for her. She received the surgery of meningocele and hydrocephalus. Now she is diagnosed as cerebral palsy and optic nerve atrophy. Her motion ability is poor and limbs are not powerful. She can turn over, can lie on the stomach, but can not sit. Additionally her mental development is delayed. She can not speak, just makes some unconscious sounds, she seems to dislike toys and not sensitive to the sounds. Now she can eat the fixed food, mainly vegetable, meat, egg, noodles, oatmeal, porridge, rice, etc. She also likes fruits. She rarely has illness.

She is slight, and shorter than other children of her age. Though she has lots of disadvantages, she is still a lovely and happy baby. She likes smiling, especially when someone is talking with her and teasing her. When someone is hugging her, she is quiet and listening to adults’ talk, sometimes she touches the person’s face. She likes noisy, always turns her head to the sounds. When no one plays with her, she will be upset and call unhappily. Though she is a disabled child, she is lovely as other healthy child. She has the same feeling, desires to be loved and cared. We hope she would grow up healthily and happily and she would have a family with warm and love. We believe she can adapt new place and bring happiness to the family. Bless Sarea! Wish she can find her parents soon and have a family. Wish she is peaceful all her life.

Amelia likes to dance, listen to stories, read picture books, and play hide-and-seek. She came into care around 8 months of age and was sponsored by Half the Sky Foundation’s nurturing program for infants. At 9 months, she could sit steadily alone for a few minutes, grab her feet with her hands, and hold her hands up to be held. At one year of age, she could hold toys and stand when leaning on objects. She enjoyed sitting and rocking on the wooden horse. At 15 months, she was more outgoing and could stand for a long time when holding onto a support. She could grasp toys nearby and she could walk slowly with assistance. When it was time to take a nap, she would shake her head “no.” She could pick up objects with her thumb and index fingers.

Her condition became more serious in 2009, and we hope to see her come home soon so that she can receive the best medical treatment for her condition. Her caregivers exercise her daily to improve her symptoms, and say that “she has already taken the first step in life and will do better in the future.”

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2015: “A friend and I met her in September. She has a syndrome of some sort with a facial deformity and extra fingers and toes (6 on each). It doesn’t appear to affect her beyond the visual standpoint. Her hearing and vision are normal. She attends a public special education school where she is in the 3rd grade. Her favorite subject is art. Aspen loves vegetables, but is allergic to seafood. She loves to jump rope and play with balls. Her favorite color is pink. The orphanage staff described her as shy, kind, friendly to other children, helpful, and obedient. She likes to play with others and is very kind to everyone. Jinger speaks clearly and can communicate just fine, though she was very shy and scared when she first met us. By the time we left, she was more comfortable and full of smiles. She enjoys singing, dancing, playing outside, and helping the nannies. Jinger is a lovely and active girl. She likes listening to music and happy tone could make her happy.

She likes to play house and could imitate putting on clothes for the dolls, feeding and dressing the dolls. She is a girl who likes beauty. She is happy when praised as a beautiful girl. Jinger likes playing games with other children. Sometimes she would help the others to put on socks or shoes. The others are happy to play with her. Jinger is polite and would greet initially with the smile on her face.

Except hyperdactylia (of left hand and left foot) and abnormity of the head she seldom gets sick except occasional cold, but she could recover soon after treatment. She is considerate and we hope that she could blossom like a flower and be happy every day.”

He said she often secretly admires herself in the mirror. She loved posing for the camera and didn’t need any instruction – she knew exactly what to do! Her foster family reports that she can make sounds while lying down, but cannot once she is standing, as if something is blocking her throat. Jennifer has a good appetite and isn’t a picky eater, though she especially likes candy! She is diagnosed with delays in motor skills and language, but her latest developmental information is outdated; as of two years ago she could walk, but not run or jump with both feet. She was only calling out simple words, but had good understanding. She plays well with other children and never fights.

She is not afraid of strangers. She speaks very little. She says “po-po” (Grandma), “ma-ma” (mother) and “ba-ba” (father). She follows directions very well. If you ask her to point to a certain body part, she will do that. She is very wobbly on her feet and cannot really stand up without a helping hand. She leans on her foster mother a lot, but she was observed to be able to walk flat footed. She is clearly adorable, but may need a family who is open to significant delays and to some unknowns.
