Help Save Children Like These

Born, Born May 15, 2004
Our Dima is still waiting!  Dima has blonde hair and a personality that just glows.  He is considered very high functioning.  He lived with his family for a while, as they did not realize he had Down syndrome.  He is facing hte institution very soon and is blessed to still be at the baby house!    He is active, happy, and social.  He will make a wonderful son!

BOY, Born November 26, 2004
This handsome young man is another of a growing number of children who were born with arthrogryposis.
His hands seem to be unaffected, but he is unable to walk at this time.  He is described as very loving and affectionate and friendly!
Igor is facing the institution and will remain bedridden for the rest of his life…he needs a family like you!

Girl, Born August 31, 2001 Amelia was born with a Congenital cardiac malformation – Fallot’s tetralogy. Surgery was performed in 2005 and her heart condition was completely corrected. Amelia is currently living in a mental institution. She is delayed in all aspects of her development but does receive therapy. She also participates in the granny/grandchild program at the institution. She walks with support. Her speech is developing. She is making sounds and can say “no” and attempts to say the word for granny. She responds to her name, follows basic directions, and plays with toys. She drinks from a cup and eats independently. She enjoys affection, responds well to being cuddled, and is a very happy child.
Photo and medical report were updated in February 2010. 

Girl, Born March 6, 2003 
Natalia is a GORGEOUS little girl with brown hair and giant blue eyes.   She is 6 years old.   She is a very smart little girl, but her medical records show cognitive delay and some epileptic issues.   Her seizures are infrequent, and she does take medication to control it.   Her cognitive delay is likely a result of the seizures though.   She also has some strabismus (crossed/lazy eye), but this can be corrected in the US.  Natalia is able to speak, and when our missionary asked her if she would tell us something , she was trying to rehearse a little poem!  Natalia walks like a regular child.  She is a very nice little girl, happy and friendly and beautiful.   She will truly thrive in a family environment.
From her medical records:  epilepsy and flat feet

Natalia is already living in an institution, so we need a family for her right away!  She recently lost her adoptive family, so her situation is urgent!   She is STILL living at the “not so good” place, and is unable to walk on her own yet.  We need to get her out immediately.
