Ana Needs A Home

We have been advocating strongly for Ana to find a home. She is wonderful! She is healthy and she will thrive within the walls of a loving family. Ana is post op Spina Bifida. She received surgery from a US team out of PA and recovered at Maria’s Big House of Hope in Luoyang, China. She now lives with a foster family as she waits to go to her forever home. Ana is healthy, smart and developmentally on track. She does not have sensation in her lower limbs and cannot control her bowels. Please educate yourself on the treatments for incontinence before you run away scared from that diagnosis! There are ways to manage it! Ana deserves a family just like the rest of us! This photo and video was taken in 12/2013. Ana, we are working hard for you baby girl! Ana has a $3000 grant available to her through ATWA. Contact http://www.atwatogether.org for more information.

Be Thou My Vision!

I am pleased to be advocating for this itty bitty DARLING!!! Meet itty bitty Haddie! Haddie’s DOB is 1/2013. She has trouble seeing out of her left eye and her file states she is to young to vision test so they are unsure how much she can or cannot see. Physically and developmentally she is right on track! Haddie’s special needs are cerebral dysplasia (although no signs of developmental delay), strephenopodia of both feet, meaning, “flat feet” and vitreous spotty opacities of left eye. She is a little darling! Haddie is listed with ATWA. Interested families can contact them at http://www.atwatogether.org

New Waiting Children Listed.

Last week I was assigned new children that I have the honor of advocating for and my oh my how special each of them are! Please read about these deserving children!

Meet Ryan! DOB 6/2009. He has a right anterior archanoid cyst and a weak left leg. His physical and mental development is delayed, but he is capable of learning! He can move independently, walking, jogging, up and down stairs but his movement is a little abnormal. He can do simple things like moving chairs, feeding himself, play games, dress himself, use the toilet and fold clothes. He is capable of doing so much more if he gets the attention he needs! There are three videos available of Ryan for interested families. They highlight how intelligent he is and his potential to be amazing!

Regarding language development, she can communicate with nannies and teachers. She get’s along well with other children and likes to help others. She is able to play with toys, clap hands and dance with music, and participate in outdoor activities. Molly’s special need is mental retardation. Give her a chance. Look at her file!

Cody is ready to come home! His DOB is 12/2007. He has CHD. He is described as a very happy child. He has waited far too long. He could truly blossom with a family of his own. Cody had heart surgery on December 3, 2013. He can have simple communication with adults and likes to imitate. He can recite simple Chinese poems and can recognize some colors. He can stand, walk and jump. Since he just had surgery he has to take it slow. He likes to swing, slide and play with toys. He is friendly, likes to be with his teachers and plays well with the other children.
