These two are in the same orphanage now, but they have 3 older siblings in a different orphanage. One of the older children was born in 2012; we don’t have the info on the other two children’s age. It’s likely the governmental authorities will want all 5 children to be adopted together in the same family, because they have no severe special needs.

More likely the governmental authorities will want all 5 children to be adopted together in the same family, because they have no severe special needs.

Isla has been registered for domestic adoption for over a year and because of her age, she is internationally adoptable only under the condition of adoption of the older sibling(s).

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.

UPDATE 2021:

Annie turns when called by her name. She makes a short-lasting eye contact. She reacts to adults’ speech with cooing and is selective in her interactions with adults. She likes being around other children, observes them and reacts emotionally when they tease her. She vocalizes so as to attract the other children or adults’ attention. She distinguishes the voice and the tone when someone is talking to her, when she is calm or cries. She participates in joint activities in adapted environment with sensory-based activities. She vocalizes and smiles when she likes a certain activity. She likes soft, stuffed animals and silicone sensory objects. During musical and sensory-based activities she reacts with positive emotion and maintains a good eye contact. She turns her head at the direction of the toy, which makes sounds. She follows a moving object from left to right, from above to below, as well as in the space around her. She raises her head and follows a desired moving object. She makes a choice between two objects or toys by reaching or looking intensively at the desired one. She reaches her hand out so as to reach a desirable object or food. She is fully depends on the caretakers for her physical needs. Her postures during the day need to be changed by an adult – she is verticalized and moved in the space. When she is lying, she is able to reach her hands so as to reach an offered toy. She is able to turn from back to belly, albeit with some support. She is able to hold her hands below the chest and uses her elbows for support. She raises her head and follows a moving object from left to right.
Alec walks independently. He is able to squat down and get up, as well stand upright from a sitting position on the floor. His walking has stabilized but he still frequently stumbles and falls. He climbs up and down stairs with support. He is able to throw and roll a ball but has difficulty in catching it. He uses both hands when manipulating objects. His left hand seems to be dominant. He copes with activities that require the use of both hands with each hand performing a different action (buttoning/unbuttoning, inlaying, cutting with scissors, etc.), but still needs some support. His writing skills are in the process of development – he adheres to the border of the paper, he draws horizontal and vertical lines by imitation and a “nest”, outlines a circle in the internal side of a stencil. He draws a sun, balloon, face and follows dotted lines. He understands and follows short, one or two step, instructions, within the context of the situation. He purposefully uses basic gestures, accompanied by words (“End”, “Again”, “Give”). He more often expresses his needs or spontaneously makes comments about things he finds impressive with a word/sentence. He connects two words in a sentence independently, most often memorized phrases. In his therapy he uses an alternative system for communication through pictures (PECS) – IV phase – line sentence and signs of the object are included (color, shape, size). He independently places the words on the line and constructs sentences such as “I want a big train”, “I want a long spiral”, etc. He properly uses “I” and “you” n familiar situations. He plays with toys appropriately. He has acquired basic models for playing but his playing is sometimes stereotypical (he spins the tires of the cars, examines objects with his eyes/mouth). He has good imitation skills and likes playing outside, recreating observed actions. He willingly participates in activities. He watches cartoons and repeats phrases he has heard. He waves his hand to say “Hello” or “Goodbye”. He gives kisses. He looks for other children and plays with them for short periods of time, but communication with them is still difficult. He still has difficulties sharing his toys and needs support in interaction and common games. With the support of an adult he is able to wait for his turn during a joint game with another child. He compares two objects in accordance to external signs (color, shape, size). He is in a process of building concepts about color, shape and size. He knows some quality concepts (big/small, long/short, clean/dirty, etc.). He counts up to 3. He finds it easier to learn when the educational material is incorporated in his everyday activities.

This will be a two part adoption: Family must be prepared to adopt boy 1, then have to go back to adopt boy 2. this is because only boy 1 qualifies for expedited availability as both have not yet been listed on the registry for one year. Once adoption 1 is done, the family can file for adoption of the second child immediately as a bio sibling of their child.

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.

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.

Brothers – they need to be adopted together!

They are said to be “very good boys”!

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.  Due to his age, he is now adoptable only with his younger brothers.

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.

From someone who met Brody in 2011 and Auggie in 2012:  Brody and Auggie are sweet little boys who appear to have some sort of genetic disorder that causes developmental delays and self-harming behaviors. They are not aggressive towards others, only towards themselves, and these behaviors can be halted temporarily by picking either boy up and spinning him around. Brody is able to walk, and can drink from a cup without help. He is not quite able to feed himself, but is willing to try. Auggie was in a laying room for over a year, but after only 3 months of physical therapy is now sitting independently and working on learning to stand. Both boys have wonderful, heart stealing smiles. Brody appears to be in his own world much of the time, and loves things that crinkle or light up, and things shaped like sticks, as well as hands, gloves, feet and socks. He shows numerous signs of autism, which may or may not be environmental. Auggie loves things that crinkle or light up, slinkies, music, and tv. He is more interactive than Brody, and appears to lift his arms up to indicate he would like to be held. This is the only form of communication I observed from either of the boys. The boys are currently living in separate orphanages. I pray a family will reunite these brothers together in one family, where they can receive all the love and attention they need to meet their full potential!

We hope a family will consider adopting them TOGETHER.

Casey, the younger girl was born in 2008 and has no SNs, just some kind of development delay. She is smart and active, participate in all orphanage performances. She has now been transferred.

Her older sister, Lynn, was transferred from her orphanage due to her age. She was born in 2006. By orphanage social worker her older sister is VERY smart and beautiful, no SNs, very active in all performances. She has now been transferred again.

Both girls need a family asap!!!  These 2 siblings are to be adopted together for sure.

They also have an older brother born in 2004. He is in the special school orphanage and has severe mental delays.  Elliot will only be adoptable with his sisters.

If a family decides to adopt all 3 children it will be great! If they want only two younger siblings they are to be approved for 3 children and to get referral to meet ALL 3 siblings. Then if they decide not to adopt the oldest one we will do the best to “separate” them. I think it is possible, but we cannot guarantee it for sure.  They have a younger brother as well, and he has already been adopted.

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.

Martha does not react to her name, does not know colors, does not play with toys.  Can feed herself, but is not adequate. She would eat banana with skin and candy with cover. She is not potty trained. Her speech is almost not developed.

There is a history of prior neglect; George has better development because he lived in the family less time than Martha, before they were removed.

Joey was born in 2011.

He has 3 or 4 siblings that must be adopted with him! Sisters: D (born 2009), A (2007), brother Y (2006) (and one younger brother, whose status is unknown)

From a family that met him 12/15: Joey is a tiny, smiley little guy who loves attention and hugs! He was so happy to sit on my lap for a hug, to show me the little stuffed animal and toys he was holding and to have his picture taken! He is verbal and said things like, “Cheese!” when having his picture taken, and “Can I see?” to see the photo stored in the camera. He will make a sweet addition to any family and he will simply thrive with the love of a Mama and Papa poured into him!

The dynamic duo – here come Rowan and Reisen. Their smile can light up a room and they are certain to win you over with their little boy charm. Both love cars and chocolate. Rowan has been hosted before last summer; Reisen just recently arrived at the orphanage. Both boys have some developmental delays, but are teacher’s favorites. Rowan has grown leaps and bounds since he was last hosted in the US, in every way possible.

Rowan: Loves cars, Happy & Playful, Speech delays; Reisen: Outoging lil bro, Artistic explorer, Friendly

From Dec 2016:
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.

*** I am eligible for a $2,000 Grant! ***
This grant is offered by Reece’s Rainbow, for children in this specific country. Grant funds are dependent on available funding. For more information, email childinquiry@reecesrainbow.org ***
Currently, Andy & Kayla are being raised together in a foster home, while Izzy is being raised in a different foster home in the same town. The children see each other often and want to be adopted together so that they can all live in the same home. The foster families do not speak the country’s native language in the home, so the children speak one language while at home and a 2nd language at school.

Andy tested at age appropriate levels on all psychological and emotional testing. He does well in school and does not have any behavioral concerns. He has age appropriate friendships, social skills, communication skills, and self-help skills. He likes to play football and eat French fries. When he grows up, he wants to be a policeman.

Izzy tested at age appropriate levels on all psychological and emotional testing. She does well in school and does not have any behavioral concerns. She has age appropriate friendships, social skills, communication skills, and self-help skills. She enjoys playing outside with her friends. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher.

Kayla has speech delays that make it difficult to understand what she is saying. She is working with a speech therapist and learning to make the correct sounds so that her words are more easily understood. She is very active and takes medication to control impulsive behaviors and to help her attention span. Her foster mother reports that her behaviors have greatly improved with the addition of medication. She is attending kindergarten and responds well to play based learning.

His favorite activities include remote controlled toys and video games. It’s noted that he gets along well with the other children, assists the caregivers, and has good self-care skills.
