Eastern Europe Waiting Children
As an individual considering becoming a parent to one of these special needs children, I recognize the need to keep confidential any photographs, videos, or any other identifying information I may receive while inquiring about a child’s individual file.
I will not publicly “share” any child’s photograph, video, or child information with anyone or at any time engage in such activity. I will not speak negatively about these children nor post any negative comments on blogs, websites, or other media outlets that would in any way be seen as derogatory.
I understand that there is no identifying information (ie. Birth Name, Complete Date of Birth, Country of Origin, etc) available on this site for any child. This will be provided at time of referral.
In the event I breach any of these terms, I understand that Children’s House International may, in its discretion, discontinue its relationship with me resulting in my adoption being stopped, and I also understand any fees paid to that point will not be refundable. Children’s House International may, in its discretion, also file a court suit against me for breach of this confidentiality statement.
After submitting this confidentiality agreement, you will be redirected to a webpage with information on each waiting child currently available for adoption through Children’s House International along with video links if available.
Submitting this statement of confidentiality does not necessarily indicate that your family meets all of the requirements to adopt. We will review the specific parent requirements with a CHI case manager, and contact us if you have any questions by calling 360-383-0623.

WE HAVE RECEIVED AN UPDATE ON JOSHUA!
This precious little boy is still waiting for his forever family! We have been advocating for him for a long time and would LOVE to see him in a loving and caring forever home!
“Joshua is sweet-hearted, calm and a very bright little boy. He plays with toys for a long time. He can build a tower of cubes. He looks through books with a huge interest and leaves traces with a pencil on a sheet of paper. He is a smiling child, who enjoys other children’s company. He is emotionally warm and radiant. He started using several meaningful words.
According to our psychologist who visited him at the end of last months, Joshua has kept on progressing in the past year and there has been lots of positive changes in his social and speech development. He has matured emotionally and presents himself as more confident in communication.”

Simon is an adorable and intuitive little boy! He is 5 years old and is blind. He loves listening to music, is able to crawl and walk with support and is able to explore new spaces. When entering a new room Simon makes a sound with his mouth, similar to ticking and by this sound he orients himself about the room and the places of the objects. He is in a wonderful foster family who does a great job caring for him and working with him on things like his fine motor skills. Simon says words and short phrases to express his needs and wants. He is calm going to bed and the foster family is working with him on potty training. He loves attention from adults but also enjoys playing with other children. He is reserved at first with meeting new people but when he gets use to someones presence he seeks to communicate with them. “Since the beginning of October 2015, Simon was entered and will start a kindergarten, in the beginning half a day. There he will have the opportunity to work with a resource teacher and speech therapist, and also with a physiotherapist.”
From birth until last December Simon was in an orphanage and was severely malnourished and not cared for, as it is with many children who are blind. Since being in a foster family he has grown and progressed in so many ways!

Sarah is a very precious and beautiful 5 year old girl with Down Syndrome. Sarah has had a steady, slow increase in developmental skills observed, especially when the child spends time in a group of peers (learning by repetition of others’ behavior, as well as motor, social and communication development). Sarah requires monitoring and aid in development of all spheres, while incorporating selfsufficiency functions (among them training of cleanliness activities).

Tina is a precious 7 year old from Eastern Europe. She has a congenital heart defect: unbalanced atrioventricular canal defect, muscular ventrical septal defect and hipoplastic aortic arch. Her left kidney also has features of double pyelocalyceal system. She is an active and is not letting her conditions keep her down. Tina needs a loving and caring family that will help her thrive.
Emily is a beautiful 4 year old girl with Down Syndrome. Emily is silly and loves to play!!! According to a precious assessment “she likes motor games (jumping on the Bobath ball – game “jak to milo” /oh how nice/, or on the therapist’s legs – game “jedzie konik” /giddy-up giddy-up horsey/) and asks for“action” (she jumps) when the game is stopped. She really likes stimulation of proprioception she searches them by herself. Emily seeks out play and loves to be active.
Video of Emily:
Isaac is a cautious and caring little guy who loves being outside. He is 6 years old and is blind and was diagnosed with infantile cerebral palsy – spastic diplegia; and severe delay in the neuro-psychical development. He moves around on his own but his actions are a bit hesitant. He recognizes things by touching his immediate environment in which he lives. He is oriented in time and place through smell, hearing, and acoustics of the premises. He LOVES music and tries to match the beat by clapping his hands or moving his body.
All new activities are accompanied by lots of reservation and uncertainty but with patience and consistency, Isaac masters them. He wants to explore the world around him more than his present development allows, so he needs proximity of an adult. He has a great relationship with his physical therapist and has shown tremendous progress since working with her.
