ABBIE, DOB: 10/2007, female, SN: cerebral palsy (mild), external ear deformity of the left ear
Every photo we have of Abbie shows a sad and scared little girl. There isn’t a single picture of her smiling or looking happy. Every photo shows a beautiful little girl with a broken smile. Abbie needs a family that will give her a reason to laugh, smile, and be happy.
A few days after birth Abbie was left outside of the Children’s Welfare Institute. The police searched for her parents but they weren’t found. On admission the child was found with deformity of the left external ear and her left mouth corner was slanting upward and left ward, especially obvious when crying. She was thin and tiny.
On Nov 5, 2007, she entered the infants nurturing program by Half Sky Foundation. On Oct 10, 2010, she was transmitted to the little sister grogram of the Half Sky Foundation. She gets along well with the children here but her left mouth corner was still slanting upward and left ward. At the time of the report, Abbie enjoys playing games, studying and following the teacher’s directions. She is fond of putting the blocks into a container and then pouring them out. She can pile the blocks 4-5 layers high. During the break time, the teacher would ask the children to form a circle and sit. Then she would distribute dim sum. When calling Abbie’s name, she would smile very happily. At this time, her slanting mouth would be very obvious.
Abbie cannot walk around yet and needs to be taken by both hands. In this way, she can walk very long. If taken by one hand, she can walk but will be unwilling to walk after a short time. Seeing a person she likes, she utters “en” and hopes to be cuddled by the person. When she is unhappy, she pouts, frowns and does not pay attention to others. At this time, if you tried to hug Abbie, she would push your arms away. We exchange with her with the words we normally speak, she can understand. If spoken with “go”, “playing toys”, “have meals”, “patting hands”, she can understand. But she is timid. When spoken to by a stranger, she would be silent. If spoken to by someone she knows, then her response would be “yi-yi-ya-ya”. Now she can utter “mama”, “papa” but it’s difficult for her to speak. She can also point out her ears and mouth.
Since she has cerebral palsy, we have not vaccinated her.
At present she is living in the Beibei Class in the welfare institute, and there are 27 children of 24-48 months living with her.

ALLIE DOB: 6/2007 ,female SN: abnormity of the head; hyperdactylia(of left hand and left foot)
One of Allie’s favorite games to play is a classic game of “House”. She takes care of her dolls with exceptional care. As any good mother knows, the key to keeping a child happy is giving tons of kisses and love. Allie makes sure her dolls are fed, not tired, and dressed. It’s exceptionally saddening to see a 7 year old girl taking care of her dolls and no one doing the same to her. She continues to dream about a “house” where her mother gives her love, feeds her, and makes sure she is dressed and not tired.
Personality and hobbies:Allie is a lovely and active girl. Her hobbies consist of listening to music that is upbeat and obviously singing along to her favorite songs. She can’t help singing along, it brings her too much happiness to keep it inside. From classmates to teachers, Allie is known as the girl who sings. Friends and teachers are encouraged to sing along with Allie. What is Allie’s favorite song to sing? Of course it’s “A Cat with Colorful Hair”. I am not sure if this song exists, but it sounds like an irresistible song to sing along to.
In her report it states “She is a girl who likes beauty, she would be happy to be praised as a beautiful girl”.
Allie likes playing games with other children. Sometimes she would help the others to put on socks or shoes. The others are happy to play with her.
Allie is polite and greets everyone with a smile on her face.
Immunization: Allie is immunized as planned: OPV, DPT, MV, JEV, EMV, HA and not allergic to anything.
Medical: Except hyperdactylia (of left hand and left foot) and abnormity of the head she rarely gets sick. There is the occasional cold, but she recovers soon after treatment. No allergies to medication.
Academics: According to the behavior of the child in the institute and the inspection of the teachers in school, we find that her intelligence level is equivalent to a two year old. In one of the tests, Allie’s teacher asked her what the color of certain items were. She was unable to name the colors but could repeat the answers once they were told to her. This test was taken in 2011 when Allie was 4 years old.

For a boy who has previously been timid this is a good thing. He sounds like a typical boy of 8 years old. Cruz is reported as healthy in his physical, emotional and social development. He was born with a difference of his right hand and was admitted to his SWI as a newborn. Video link from July 22, 2014 is found at the link below.
Cruz’ reports share:
PE on admission: normal physical growth and fairly healthy. Primary diagnosis: right hand deformity.
At the age of 11months, Cruz was able to stand with hands holding onto support, and walk with an adult’s help. At the age of 13months, Cruz walked alone.
Although he has a hand disability, Cruz is the same as normal children. At the age of 1 year, Cruz could run short distances and walk upstairs and downstairs independently. At the age of over 2years, he can speak a long sentence. However, Cruz is fairly timid and speaks in a low voice.
In 2008, for Cruz, it was a fairly special year. Cruz entered into a foster family and begun a new life. He gets along well with dad, mom and the old brother, the old brother in particular, because their ages are similar; they often play together; he has become more outgoing and extroverted; he is not afraid of strangers any more.
Since 2010, he goes to the special class in our institute; he follows the teacher to recite the Tang Poems, to learn the finger rhymes, sing and dance; he often has the performance during parties in our institute.
Later, he goes to the primary school, begins to study. In the school, he gets along well with the teachers and classmates; maybe the nature of the boys are naughty; his interests are the sports. His pulley technology is better; he can play the pulley steadily; his school records are yet to be improved. We believe, as he ages, he would value the education, and would devote himself to the education.

There is so much great news about Daniel! First, there are baby pictures! (That’s because the adoption file is from 2009.) However, there are plenty of NEW pictures because Daniel is sponsored in foster care through Love Without Boundaries.

Watch Daniel be dazzled by the camera.

DAPHNE, female, DOB 10/2009 SN Psycho-motor delay
Daphne is making wonderful progress through her rehabilitation training. She is walking some distance without having to have support. She can now stand independently. EXCELLENT WORK DAPHNE! She is also learning to speak and it is said to sound “relatively quiet, like a sheep sound, very cute!” Daphne has a more timid personality but in her familiar environment she likes to play with toys with her friends. With continued physical therapy Daphne will only be able to grow stronger and more capable.

At the age of 4, Daphne was in the rehabilitation area for basic rehabilitation training, and now she could walk a few steps away from the objects themselves, Daphne started developing her language and she would have called out “Auntie”, and will tell you what she wants to express, but the pronunciation is relatively quietly, like a sheep sound, very cute.
Daphne has now 4 years 6 months she has made great progress over the first half, and now she can stand up their own independent, without relying on an object for support and can go some way, but to go more slowly, afraid of falling. Daphne is very timid, when she sees someone come will seem very afraid, afraid to speak, a little noise can scare the daylights out of her, then she would silently cry; but if you play with her, she likes you hold her, still hiding in your arms like a baby.
Third, personality traits
Daphne is a lovely little girl. With strangers or in a strange environment, she will be a bit timid, but she will soon be able to melt into the environment when satisfied. She likes to play with the children, and the children will grab toys; sometimes stir emotions, very lovable.
Daphne has psychomotor retardation, usually in addition to occasional colds, fever, has no other abnormalities.

DAX, male, DOB 7/2002 SN post operative CHD (Tetrology of Fallot)
Dax is happy, active, sociable boy who has been in his orphanage since he was 6 years old. He entered the institution with a diagnosis of heart disease so it is likely that his birth family could not meet his medical needs although there is no record of his birth family or situation prior to being found abandoned. His CWI directors now feel they may have estimated his age incorrectly and that he is likely 1-2 years younger than they guessed. His physical and social development reflect more a child younger than his stated age. He suffers no current symptoms of heart disease.
Dax has a twinkle in his eye and is occasionally known to tease and make some mischief.
His very best friend is Dixon who is also waiting for a family. Dax enjoys badminton and playing on the playground. He likes to draw. He currently attends Grade 3 in the neighborhood school. In his typical environment he is talkative and active. He is especially verbal and that is described as one of his talents. He is slow to anger and will find a quiet place to sit when he is upset and where he can collect himself. One of his good friends was recently adopted to America and he misses him a lot. He also longs for a permanent family and wishes to be adopted
Dax is part of the One to One Partnership with Children’s Welfare Institution and Children’s House International. There is a group of older children who are registered and waiting for their chance to have a family.
Dax’s reports share:
Dax, male, was found abandoned on Jul 19 2008. After a lot of search by the police station they failed to find his birth parents. He was confirmed as an abandoned baby, and on the same day was sent to Children’s Welfare Institute to be raised.
