Glenn is a precious little boy from China that is 3 and a half years old. Glenn was born with hydrocephalus, but it went away on its own without surgery. In Glenn’s file it says that his diagnosis is “basically healthy.” One of our GWCA staff members met Glenn when she visited China earlier this year and she would be happy to speak with any interested family about Glenn!
Glenn is generally a happy kiddo who gets along well with other children in the orphanage. He likes to play ball games with other children, along with running and jumping games. Glenn is in a normal kindergarten class with other healthy children. Glenn can distinguish the sizes of objects, he can understand the concept of big and small, and he also understands the concept of in and out. Glenn can count from 1 to 10, he knows the names of the different colors, and he likes to build towers with blocks.
When Glenn sees familiar people he will say “hello” on his own initiative. Glenn likes to turn pages of picture books, and when he sees familiar things, such as animals in the books, he will use his fingers to point to the pictures and say the names, such as: tiger, cat, monkey, dog, etc. When he sees things in books he is unfamiliar with he will say “what is this?” Glenn understands that fish swim in the water and birds fly in the sky, and other such concepts. Glenn knows when he feels hot he will take off his clothes, and before meals he will wash his hands on his own initiative. Glenn is an active child that enjoys being with others.

Sasha is a lovely little girl from China that is 3 and a half years old. Sasha has hypothyroidism and receives medication for her condition. The orphanage says that Sasha is developmentally delayed. Sasha can sit up on her own and crawl, and she can stand up and walk when holding on to something. She does not like to open her eyes and doesn’t play with toys very much. While her file does not indicate she has eye sight issues, some of her behaviors do suggest she might. Sasha likes sensory activities that include touch, such as clapping her hands, rolling on the floor and receiving cuddles from her caretakers.
When Sasha’s name is called she will turn toward the person who is calling her. She will laugh happily when a caregiver teases her. Her language development is delayed compared to some of her peers but she does imitate the words of others. She tends to be shy and quiet. She has been receiving special rehabilitation training at an orphanage designed for rehab since May 2016.
