7 New Kids on the Block

SullySully is an adorable little boy from China that just recently turned 4 years old. Sully is blind but has some light perception, and he has post-operative hydrocephalus (he has a shunt). Sully is a very lucky little boy because he lives in a special foster home in China called Bethel that is specifically for blind and sight impaired children. He is getting excellent care at Bethel and is receiving rehabilitation therapies that he would normally never receive in a regular orphanage. Sully arrived at Bethel when he was just around 9 months old and he has been there ever since.

From an update that was received in December, 2015, his caregivers indicate that he can see up close out of his left eye. Due to the glaucoma in his left eye, he will need surgery and additional treatment.

Wyatt has excellent cognitive and language development, and is able to recite children’s poetry! He loves to dance and does not appear to have any mobility delays despite his vision impairment.

AceAce is a sweet little boy from China that is almost 6 years old. Ace is blind in both eyes and has some developmental delays. Ace is a very lucky little boy because he lives in a special foster home in China called Bethel that is specifically for blind and sight impaired children. He is getting excellent care at Bethel and is receiving rehabilitation therapies that he would normally never receive in a regular orphanage.

Ace is in a class for children with additional needs, as he is still non verbal. He is learning to communicate with a mix of vocalization and sign language. Ace has some developmental delays and he has some characteristics of a child with autism, although he has not been diagnosed with autism by professionals. Ace loves hugs and cuddles and loves music and will hum along to the songs he listens to. Ace is a child that really needs a consistent routine, so any family wanting to adopt him will definitely want to keep that in mind.

Jasper 6-24-16Jasper is a cute little guy that is 4 years old! He has limb differences of his hands and feet but his file suggests that this doesn’t affect his mobility. Jasper is described as being a curious kiddo who always wants to learn more about his environment. He is smiley and active and loves to be teased! He can walk independently but is sometimes a little unstable. Jasper’s file is outdated so we are working on getting some updated information on him. Contact Great Wall if you are interested in learning more about him!Felicity 6-17-16Felicity is an adorable little girl from China that is almost 4 years old. Felicity is completely blind, so she is a bit more delayed than some of her friends in terms of her gross and fine motor skills. However, Felicity is doing quite well in many other areas.  Felicity can now stand and walk by herself. Sometimes she gets scared because she can’t see where she is going, which is to be expected for a child that is blind. However she is gaining more confidence about her walking skills all the time.

Felicity is described by her caregivers as “more smart than others.” She can count from 1-20, she can sing songs and she can speak words and short sentences. Felicity has really good hearing and she enjoys listening to music a lot. She can also listen to television shows and can generally follow the story lines just by listening. If a caretaker tells her to come to an area of the room, she can go to where the caretaker is instructing her.

Felicity does tend to be more introverted and plays more by herself because she can’t see things and that make it hard for her to play with other children. She does have a close relationship with her caregivers though and she really enjoys interacting with them. Felicity would benefit greatly from being adopted by a family that could give her specific therapies for blind children that she is not currently receiving in China.

You can contact the China Home Finding Team at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting Felicity. We hope we are able to find Felicity her Forever Family soon!
