Winnie is a precious little girl from China that recently turned 7 years old. Winnie was not abandoned until she was 5 years old, so she has only lived in the orphanage for the past two years. It is presumed that she lived with her birth family before she came to live in the orphanage.
Winnie is described by her caregivers as timid and gentle and she gets along very well with other children in the orphanage. She is said to have normal physical and mental development. Winnie has good self-care skills such as putting on her own clothes and shoes by herself. Winnie’s language is delayed, but she can have simple conversations and she can answer when her name is called.
Winnie is said to have had an abnormal vision screening, but it is unclear exactly what is meant by that, so we are following up with the orphanage to get more information on her vision needs. It is possible that she just has droopy eyelids (ptosis) and that she just needs to get surgery to lift her eyelids so she can see more clearly. This is something that would most likely never be done in China, so she would need a family to adopt her so she could get this kind of surgery in America.
Issac is a cute little boy from China that is 5 and a half years old. Issac is a smart kiddo who likes to listen to music, sing and dance. He has normal intelligence and is developing well cognitively. He has normal language development and can have regular conversations with friends and adults. Issac asks how and why questions such as “What is for breakfast?” Issac is a helpful boy that will assist his caretakers with daily tasks. Issac will sometimes ask his caretakers, “Are you tired?” which shows what an empathetic and sweet boy he is.
Issac was born with a spinal meningocele which was removed during surgery when he was very young. He has clubbed feet, so he cannot walk, but he can hold himself up enough to stand and he can go up and down stairs by himself. He can crawl to get where he needs to go.
It is unclear if this child could walk in the future with the right surgery and rehabilitation services that he could receive in America. Hopefully with the love, care and support of a loving Forever Family, Issac could thrive in the United States!
