Updated August 2019: Lollie is a sweet girl who is almost always happy. She is adored by everyone she meets, and has been the favorite in our house since she arrived! Her favorite thing to do is go for walks and car rides on bumpy roads. When she is happy her laugh can be heard from quite a long way off! The only thing that makes her mad is standing in her stander at therapy. Her nannies love to dress her up and fix her hair. She has a vision impairment, and does not have a lot of purposeful movement.

In school she is working on responding to different stimulation and focusing her eyes on one object at a time, and at therapy she is doing range of motion stretches, standing, and several other things.

Update August 2019: Maddie is such a sweet girl with an easy going personality. She has spastic cerebral palsy and microcephaly. Maddie prefers to keep her head tilted to one side, but has made a lot of progress in her ability to move it to look the other way. She tends to be very stiff but does great at tummy time and will lift her head up to look around. Maddie also loves to be held and can easily be soothed when you pick her up for some cuddles. Maddie does have a lot of muscle spasms, but we do not think this is seizure activity. Maddie takes a muscle relaxer medicine which seems to help her a lot.

Despite her delays, Maddie is very observant of her environment; she can often be seen looking at those around her and she has gotten good at tracking people and objects with her eyes. Maddie cannot yet sit on her own, but can sit supported on a chair or a bench with a little help in the right places. She attends therapy three days a week for stretching, exercises, and stander time. Sometimes she loves it and sometimes she hates it. Maddie is an easy going girl, except sometimes at meal time when she does not want to eat, but she will gobble down anything that has peanut butter in it. She smiles so big when we sing songs and will make herself known if she doesn’t get to see the pictures when we are reading books.

In December 2018 Maddie got a g-tube. She still eats blended food by mouth the same as she used to, but we use her g-tube to ensure she gets enough liquids and consumes all of her medicine. By mouth she has trouble swallowing thin liquids. Maddie is a petite girl, but has had a good growth spurt in the last year. Although Maddie does not talk, she knows how to communicate. She will smile when happy and will cry to alert discomfort or hunger. She has been working hard in school to learn so many things. Maddie can read and spell almost any one syllable word and her name. Every single week last year she came home from school with a 5/5 on her spelling test. She knows opposites, what happened next, and basic addition and subtraction as well. To show off these skills she uses magnetic letters on a magnetic board and will choose the next letter with her hand. Maddie also likes to use her yes/no board for simple questions and being able to be given choices like what movie she wants to watch that day. Maddie is so smart. With access to more communication devices she will tell great stories.

Maddie knows who her people are and prefers them over anyone else. She loves kisses and will instantly return the favor with a big smile. Sometimes when she really gets going she will let out a belly laugh that forces you to laugh as well.

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. Alex 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.

from a family that met her 4/19:
She is gentle and sweet. She knows how to roll, and she rolled over to a toy phone and was pushing the buttons because she knew it would make noise. She loved when I rocked her and sang to her, and she liked playing with my hair. She has a beautiful smile and is ticklish. She loves snuggles and her eyes looked better, not as crossed as before. She is really smart and with therapies and medical for her eyes she will do amazing, even the doctor there told us that.

Summer is quiet, friendly and always smiles when she is seen by an adult. She almost eats without help – but she eats slowly. She almost goes up and down the stairway by herself. She does not want to always participate in all activities and needs extra motivation. She expresses her feelings with mimics and movements. She has started to speak and pronounces some words. Summer loves music, reading, books and swinging on the horse.

She wants adult’s attention and likes to lean on an adult, sit in their lap, and give hugs. Her fine and gross motors skills development are adequate. She is friendly with adults and children.

Mikayla has the sweetest smile, laugh, and disposition. She is extremely expressive so it is very easy to gauge what she needs and when she is upset. She likes to be silly. For her own entertainment and the entertainment of others, Mikayla makes silly faces and sounds, gargles her water, and echoes the voices of her friends and caregivers. She is a cuddle bug one minute and a determined explorer the next. She is definitely full of light and love and spirit.

Mikayla has made wonderful, consistent progress since arriving at her current home. She is motivated to communicate and will babble and approximate some words. She is now more willing to engage in sensory experiences and has developed some independent play skills. She has good receptive communication and is spoken to in both English and her native language. She will use various vocalizations and behaviors to express some basic things, like making a kissy noise when she wants a kiss. She is gaining physical strength and can sit independently, move around by rolling, can stand with support and take steps using a mobility device.

Bhanu is a teensy tiny girl with a bigger than life smile! She might be tiny, but she is mighty! She knows what she wants and she is going to get it! She is a thinker and mischievous in the most adorable way. She is learning to communicate verbally and is not able to walk independently, but she sure is a hard worker!

At a recent trip to the park, Bhanu wanted to try out all the equipment! She sneakily tried to cut the lines to get to the front and made sure her caregivers were beside her to help her out so she could take part! Bhanu stands and walks with support and works very hard in PT towards her goal of learning to walk independently. She feeds herself. She loves dancing to music!

Most of the time, Caryn is calm, especially when she is in the playroom. When somebody pays attention to her, she laughs loudly. Caryn totally depends on the care of others. She sleeps peacefully and stays calm when getting dressed and bathing. She has cerebral palsy and needs specific care, though she has no severe deficit in terms of physical activity.

From a teacher who works with her: This little blind girl is progressing so well, but she is so scared. Can you imagine to be in a world where at any given moment you could get pinched, pushed over, knocked down, hair pulled, eyes poked. I don’t blame her, especially when there are so many other special needs children around her and so few staff and no family love and care. But inspite of all of this she is a fighter and a giggler.

She likes it when someone takes care of her and to be outside, with her stroller and recognizes the people that take care of her.

Delaney expresses her preferences to people and objects to which she is more attached. She has three favorite toys that are colorful and soft.

She is able to sit independently and grab and hold objects she has very strong hands she uses well. She feels comfortable when around her there are people with who she is familiar with.

Delaney is able to express her opinion and preference with gestures. Delaney is very calm child with big potential for improvement with the needed care, attention and the feeling of the real family environment.

Pippy is a precious little girl, born 2013. Pippy is a twin and was born very premature and diagnosed as having cerebral palsy- spastic diplegia, umbilical hernia, and strabismus. She now wears glasses to correct the strabismus and has received surgery to correct the hernia. Pippy was later diagnosed as having acute lymphoblast leukemia. She is currently in remission, but continues to take medication to prevent her cancer from coming back. Pippy’s twin brother also has CP and is being cared for by his biological family. Pippy is very delayed in all areas of her development. She can manipulate objects using her left hand. Pippy is not speaking at this time. We hope just the right family sees Pippy and knows that she is their daughter.

UPDATE NOV 2019: Diagnosis: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (actively receiving chemotherapy, which will be needed until 2021). Cerebral palsy – spastic diplegia; Gastroesophageal reflux disease, Convergent concomitant strabismus (wears corrective glasses); Delay in neuro-psychic development

Pippy is receiving chemotherapy for Leukemia. She was diagnosed in March 2017 and immediately began treatment. She lives in an isolation room at the orphanage to reduce her exposure to sickness. She is considered in remission, but is required to continue to take daily medication. She has a port, weekly blood draws (to adjust medications), and monthly appointments with an oncologist. Pippy also has CP that results in increased muscle tone in all 4 limbs, primarily impacting her legs. She can grab and hold a toy with her left hand. She can manipulate toys by picking up, dropping, pulling a string, picking up ring toys. She understands basic cause and effect, such as knowing to pull a string on a toy to activate the toy. She explores toys with interest. She pronounces several words and can follow basic commands. She enjoys the attention of caregivers.

A detailed medical report that outlines her Leukemia treatment, other medical history, and her development are available, along with photos and videos of Pippy. Due to her cancer diagnosis, any interested family would need to provide proof of medical insurance coverage that would adequately cover Pippy’s cancer treatment immediately upon taking custody of her. Her birth country will also require a detailed care plan showing the family has the appropriate resources and support to provide the required medical care for Pippy once home.

Sweet Jubilee is doing well. She has cerebral palsy and is on medication to control her seizures.

Update Feb 2018: With lots of patient attention, we are finally seeing Jubilee make an effort to be part of the world around her. She is doing so much better lifting up her head during tummy time. She has also started making some small but intentional hand movements when we are holding her with a toy in her lap.

Updated August 2019: Jubilee is a sweet 6 year old girl. She goes through phases where she is very happy and smiles a lot, and then goes through phases where she doesn’t smile very often. She is quite opinionated and will always let us know when she is uncomfortable, hungry, etc. She is adored by everyone that knows her. Her nannies love to dress her up, do her hair, and take her for walks. At school she is working on making choices, using her hands to reach out, and focusing her eyes on one thing at a time. In therapy she is also working on purposeful movement, range of motion, standing, and several other things.

Lucy is a beautiful, intelligent, and social child.  She has aged out at 6 years old from her orphanage and is now in a shelter, but can still be adopted. The only issue is in her legs as she needs support to walk. Her previous home did not have the funds to get a proper diagnosis, but her new home is working on it. With a potential match an agency can get more info and request the home to get a more thorough diagnosis.

Emerlyse is a sweet little girl who is 3 years old. She has no vision, and really needs a family. Emerlyse’s update from last fall said she was not walking unassisted, but would easily walk holding someone’s hand. She had not been trained to feed herself, but they were working on toilet training at that time. Emerlyse’s earlier photos show a bubbly, happy, and engaging little one. Her more recent photos show a different little girl…quiet, reserved, and a bit sad. Hopefully, they caught her on a bad day, but she most definitely needs attention and love. Emerlyse needs a family who will work with her, love her, and treasure her. And she needs them soon. We would love to see her smile again!

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!

Maggie is a precious little one. She arrived at the orphanage when she was about 6 months old; a frail and quiet baby girl. She was found to have a cleft lip and palate, CHD (PDA), and the ring finger and middle finger of her left hand fused. She had the lip surgery in 2014, but no palate surgery yet, to our knowledge. Her heart defect, Patent Ductus Arteriosus, is not at all uncommon. An x-ray of her hand showed mostly adhesion of the adjacent skin of the two fingers. Maggie has delays of both motor skills and speech. It is difficult to say if the delays are due to her known medical issues (plus unknown care for her first 6 months), or if there may be another cause. We do know Maggie needs help. She needs a family to love her unconditionally, and medical care plus therapies to help her reach her full potential. Maggie needs a family.

Marvelous Mavis will steal your heart! She is quick to smile and loves being picked up and held for comfort. Shortly after entering into the orphanage Mavis was diagnosed with epilepsy which is now managed by medication and careful attention to her diet. Mavis’ skills are steadily improving and with the support of her foster family she can now sit, and stand with assistance. When playing on her own, Mavis sits quietly; seemingly enjoying her surroundings! Mavis’ foster family “hopes she will soon find a family who will love her so she can enjoy the love of her forever parents and have a happy childhood”.

Magnolia is a precious little girl, who is described as being extroverted and sweet tempered. She is fairly active, talkative, and has quick reaction time. Magnolia enjoys singing and listening to music. She gets along well with others and likes playing outdoors with her friends and with toy cars. Magnolia lives with a foster family and though she likes to be cuddled by her foster grandfather, she is closest with her foster grandmother. She is a good sleeper and sleeps in her own bed. She is not a picky eater, though she has been spoiled by her foster grandparents who tend to hand-feed her and let her use a bottle to drink her drinks from. Magnolia’s favorite foods are meat, dumplings, noodles, vegetables, and fruits. Magnolia can walk independently. She was able to imitate words and say simple things like, “What is this?” Her intelligence was said to be delayed compared to her peers, but her orphanage also seems to say this about many children in their care.

In January of 2014, Magnolia received surgery for lumbar spinal meningocele and hydrocephalus. She had good recovery after the surgery, though she is not toilet trained. We are unsure if that is a result of her meningocele surgery or because she just hadn’t been trained yet, but a family should be prepared for her to be incontinent. An update from August (you can read the full update below) mentions that Magnolia has had a handful of seizures over the years. Magnolia has the sweetest little face with the cutest little voice.

Magnolia has a $2,500 agency grant for her adoption with a specific adoption agency. You have to watch her sweet videos! The agency has several.

Mary Beth is a sweet and cuddly little girl. She was a premature baby, and was diagnosed with laryngeal cartilage dysplasia. Mary Beth has been healthy, but her muscular tension is high. She is unable to sit, crawl, or hold anything in her hands. Mary Beth is not speaking, and does not often respond to those talking to her. When she is upset, a long hug and cuddle will calm her. She has many delays. We do not know what the future holds for this sweet little one, but with a loving family and therapies, she will be able to reach her full potential.

Olivia is an energetic, smiley, and beautiful little girl who likes listening to music and playing outside. She is especially close to her caregivers and loves to be cuddled and tickled by them. Olivia is diagnosed as having microphthalmia, which means that both of her eyes are very small and underdeveloped. She also has very low muscle tone. She is able to stand with support, but she can’t walk yet. Her caregivers have been working with her, but she still struggles to move independently. She can sit up for about 30 minutes, but she gets tired and often needs support. She knows her name, responds when called, and can follow simple instructions. She can make sounds like “ah,” but doesn’t say any words. She gets excited when her caregivers tell her it’s snack time or time to go play! Olivia has some feeding issues. She mainly eats soft foods like mashed vegetables. She has a hard time swallowing and needs food chopped up for her. She really likes to hold her bottle herself. Olivia is in a school program in her orphanage during the week days and lives with a foster family on the orphanage grounds the remainder of the time. Olivia is making progress, but what she needs most is a family who can provide her with love and therapies that are simply not available in her orphanage!

Olivia has a $500 agency grant, with her current adoption agency. Olivia needs a family with an approved home study to be able to hold her file or move forward with adopting her.

Rose loves to smile! She has a cleft lip and palate and Cerebral Palsy (CP). Her CP makes it hard for her body to move so right now she cannot sit or stand on her own. It can also be hard for her to talk with her cleft lip and palate. Rose loves when her caretakers go outside with her, and she loves when they call her name. Rose laughs and smiles at people when they talk to her, and especially when they play bells. She can roll over, hold her own toys, and hold her head up like a champ!

In fact, her caregivers tell us that is her favorite thing to do! Rachel loves nothing more than to sit on someone’s lap and be loved.

Update Feb 2021:

Shiloh is a wonderful little girl who is full of joy and loves to make happy noises. When Shiloh arrived at the children’s home, she was around 9 months old and was very underweight and unwell. He spent much of the next year in and out of the hospital and required multiple neurosurgeries to control her hydrocephalus. Despite her difficult start to life Shiloh is a fighter and today she is a very happy 8-year-old who has a beautiful smile and sassy personality. Shiloh’s health has stabilized over the years. She is a healthy weight and is not longer susceptible to infections. Shiloh has a shunt in place to treat her hydrocephalus that is working well. However, this did leave her with some significant disabilities. She has cerebral palsy which affects her right side more severely. She struggles with neck and trunk control, so she is not yet sitting unaided. She also has a significant visual impairment and epilepsy that is not yet fully controlled with medication.

Despite all this, Shiloh enjoys waving her strong side limbs with intention. In school she is learning to communicate using a picture system and communicating with her arm waves. Shiloh has good hearing and loves to listen to music. If given a shaker or bells she will join in the music. She is also able to investigate things that make noise and is working to grasp objects independently. Shiloh also enjoys physical touch and movement, such as being rocked or swinging in a hammock. Shiloh is able to recognize familiar people and has developed clear bonds with several caretakers. In a loving family she would quickly develop an attachment. The constant love and attention from a forever family is just what Shiloh needs to continue learning and growing!

February 2020 Update: Kristy is such a precious girl! She loves when she is with people that she knows care for her. Kristy eagerly seeks out physical touch from her teachers and caregivers. She crawls up to them and slowly stretches out her body until she is fully in their lap, then she hugs them tightly. It is very endearing. Kristy is very friendly and enjoys having visitors in her home. While Kristy loves to cuddle with her friends, she tends to prefer independent play. She loves to crawl in the play tunnel she received for Christmas, play with musical instruments, swing, jump on the trampoline, and play with balls.

Kristy rarely wears her hearing aids as she does not tolerate them due to her sensory aversion for them. In classes, Kristy’s teachers are beginning to work with her to teach her basic sign language. Currently they are working specifically on saying “more,” “finished,” “yes,” and “no.”

Kristy would make a valuable addition to a family as she has so much love and affection to share with others. Video available!
