Adopt a Child from China – Janey

Posted on

janey-top

 

 

Our little Janey is just two years old. She stayed with an expat foster family through our October “camp” in Beijing in 2016. Here’s some of the foster mom’s report:

“Janey is a very happy baby – always smiling, very cuddly, loves to walk around and explore. She would laugh at each thing she discovered – putting her feet on the table and pushing her chair back made her giggle with laughter. When we gave her a bath, she loved splashing in the water and playing with the bath toys. She is very playful and loved following my kids around. When my daughter would play the piano, Janey would walk over and play on the keys as well. I can tell she is going to be a jokester when she is older. She was so fun to be with and would often just look me in the eye and grin!”

“Janey is observant. Despite her microphthalmia, she walks around without bumping into things. She holds toys up to her face to study them. She could see the pictures in the books we read to her. She was able to put plastic letters in a ziploc bag and then look through the side of the bag to reach in and grab the letter she wanted.”

Microphthalmia means that Janey’s eyes are very small. But it certainly doesn’t seem to hold this spunky little girl down.  Could you see Janey in your family?

China Waiting Children – Adopt CALVIN

Posted on Updated on

calvin-top

 

Calvin is seven years old and VERY, VERY smart! He participated in our October 2016 “camp” in Beijing. Lucky Calvin had an American dentist who previously worked with special needs kids as his camp mom. Here’s what Dr. Wise had to say:

“Calvin is determined, and Super Smart. You don’t need to explain something to him twice, he just gets it. Sometimes he just observes and gets it. Example: By only watching my kids play with the Ipad for a few minutes he already knew how to use his fingers and choose the games there. He is independent and knows how to dress himself. He pushes his wheel chair and locks the wheels when he wants to stand up.  Calvin eats independently and  he has such a good manners during meals too! He likes languages. When I tried to say good night  or see you later….He answered bye bye…. So funny!! By the end of the third day he knew how to say: ‘bye bye, OK, more please.’  Calvin really knows how to use his hands and physical expression to communicate what he wants, like when he was thirsty or hungry or needed to go to the bathroom. Yes!!!! He knows how to use the bathroom. I put him there and he took care of himself and then he was all ready to keep going with his day. He has complete control of his bladder and bowel movements.

“I am an American dentist and I have experience working closely with kids with mental disabilities, and I have to say that Calvin is super smart and I think he has been misdiagnosed with mental disability. I know he had a difficult delivery and that is why he has cerebral palsy and this is why it is difficult for him to use his legs and talk. However, I totally think that if Calvin receives adequate physical therapy and the right orthopedic shoes, he will be able to walk and maybe even run. He has speech delay, but again with the adequate speech therapy he will be able to communicate much better.  Calvin dislikes the direct sun light. I noticed that when we were outside. He needs to have his eyes checked and wear sun glasses to protect his eyes from direct sun light. Calvin is absolutely lovely and his smiles make everybody around happy.”

Could Calvin’s smiles light up your home?

China Waiting Children – Adopt Alec!

Posted on Updated on

alec-top

Eight-year-old Alec has a friendly smile. Alec is the class monitor in school, but he never boasts about it. The other children are eager to report that Alec has been appointed class monitor. Alec likes school and especially enjoys PE and performing in class musical presentations. He likes to help around the orphanage, mopping floors, washing dishes and taking care of younger children. He takes pride in being the group photographer. When the nannies entrust Alec with their cameras or phones, he does a great job of taking pictures.

Alec often spends time sitting quietly by himself, but the nannies say he is constantly watching others carefully. He is always aware of those around him. Alec is a man of few words. When asked a question, he will think  carefully before answering.

Could Alec be your son?
