ADELINE, female, DOB 9/2010 SN cerebral palsy
CHI Partnership file, Special Focus Designation
There are children for whom the orphanage and agency partnerships are especially critical. These are the ones that exist in the periphery. They languish on registry lists for months, for years. Nobody seems to see them, hear them.
Children’s House International SAW Adeline. They really tried to SEE her. The words to describe her were, “happy, smiley, nice to everyone, engaged, focused, sweet, good.” Amazing, right? She can understand all that is being said to her. At one point in the video you see her slouching a bit and her aunties tell her to stand up straight and she does. She can speak 2 word sentences but her speech is slow and takes effort likely due to her cerebral palsy. She is like a tiny bird that has a heart to fly but not yet the physical ability.
When Adeline came in the room for review, her caregivers all said, “Everyone loves her”. They also share about her, “The child is introverted, if she fails she will cry but if given something to eat or praised for trying she will stop crying. Fond of listening to music, can do actions following the music. Sometimes she is afraid of darkness, sometimes the child is timid, shy, or quiet. She is fond of playing games, energetic, can share toys with other children, can adapt to the environment well, can communicate with working staff, when she wants something she will call mama, likes to practice to walk in her walker.”
CHI truly desires for you to take 3 minutes and SEE her. KNOW her. CHEER for her. That is all that any of us really wants, isn’t it?
BECKHAM, male, DOB 6/2014 SN post-operative spinal meningocele
Baby Beckham very recently celebrated his very first birthday. He is ready for the gift of family. It is hoped that he will be able to celebrate his second birthday with his little face chin deep in party cake frosting. Beckham had surgery to remove his meningocele in September 2014. He recovered well and is now learning how to sit independently. It is not yet clear how strong his legs will become as he is still very young but he is able to move them freely. Video taken in June 2015 will show his legs movement.
Beckham’s caregivers describe him as ”He can grow like other children of his age, knows his name, can smile, can hold toys, can visually follows others, likes to be accompanied with a caregiver, clever and lovely. After his operation the child recovered well. Physical state: good development, but deformed lower limbs.”
BONNIE BLU, female, DOB 1/2013 SN arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC)
Bonnie Blu is as enchanting as enchanting can be. Her video came in this week and will quickly endear her to you as well.
Her caregivers adore her and share this: She is a favorite girl, no crying when she doesn’t feel hungry and thirsty. Bonnie Blu has white skin, soft hair, two bubbly and bright eyes, small nose and a small cherry mouth on her round duck egg fat face. She giggles with a loud voice, so that people can’t help to kiss her.
Bonnie Blu is a very clever girl. Even though she has body disability, her language expression is better than same aged children. Every day when seeing children in baby class, we always hear her call out, “Sister Yue, Sister Li” with young voice; after attracting our attention, she will stretch her arms and want to be held. When I ask her “Do you eat full?” she will point her small stomach saying “full”, like a lovely doll.
Bonnie Blu still has a temper tantrum. If the teacher of baby class holds other children, she will show an unhappy expression and make a babble sound from her mouth. With that angry eyesight staring at you, she will continue until she is held by teacher successfully, then she feels satisfied and happy smile. This also shows Bonnie Blu is attached to a mother and needs safety. I think she is very eager to be loved and pay attention in her deep inner heart and we hope she can find parents and feels warmer and love in normal family.”

He even attends the Sunshine Class in his orphanage where he is said to work very hard on his physical therapy. He also lives with a foster family in the Love Home foster village on the grounds of the orphanage.

CHI Partnership file, Special Focus Designation
To review the full file, please contact CHI China Specialist Nina Thompson at: email@example.com
The CHI China Team was able to meet Derrix on 4/15/2015. Derrix was one of our first little friends to meet that day. He arrived with his foster mother and waited excitedly for his turn. Derrix had been practicing for his, “Look at me” moment. It didn’t take long for all the eyes and ears in the room to be pointed in Derrix’s direction. He had memorized a song and was able to sing it by himself. He has a little lisp which makes the melody that much more precious.
Derrix is a bible lover. He has a strong memory and remembers many bible verses. He finds joy in learning and sharing those verses.
Derrix has many friends. After meeting him it is certainly easy to see why. The CHI team immediately wanted to be his friends too! He lives in a foster family and has older siblings in the foster family but also would be happy with younger siblings too. Derrix attends the public preschool near his foster home. Derrix is a can and will do kind of little dude.

KINGZTON, male, DOB 7/2009 SN post-operative anal atresia
Kingzton is a typical boy. He is keen on sports, cars and things that move. He is an intelligent and friendly fellow and makes friends well. He can also stand up for himself and express his needs. He is determined which will suit him well in his life. You can see this expressive, focused and clever child in the following video link:
Kingzton was born with anal atresia. He has had surgery to address this but more surgery will very likely be required once home to finish the repair. Kingzton is so very much more than his special need.
Prospective adoptive families are often unfamiliar with this need and hesitant to consider it. There is so very much that can be done, particularly at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where they are the best in the US at addressing this need.
We encourage all families who have experience with this special need to share so that others might see they CAN indeed meet Kingzton’s medical need and bring him home.
KODIAX, male, DOB 7/2013 SN post-operative constrictive band syndrome of right leg, Hepatitis B virus carrier
