John is a very loving and affectionate 10 year old boy who has cerebral palsy. He does not let his disability get in the way of living and is very independent; wanting to join in with doing chores as well as taking care of himself. He loves music and will lay down and listen to music on the radio for hours if given the opportunity. When the radio is playing in the car, he loves to sing along with it. He has a slight smile that he gives sometimes when something amuses him and other times he is unable to contain it and it gives birth to a full and beautiful laughter. John gets along well with other children, but mostly loves staying close by his host mom. He has had no problems bonding or attaching to his host family. He adores his host dad and riding in the truck with him. John already has a beginner’s understanding of telling time and is able to read and write some Chinese characters. He came to us with some understanding of basic English words like the colors and numbers, and during his time here has begun understanding even more. He wants desperately to live in the United States and speaks heartbreakingly of his desire not to go back to China. Through translation with his chaperone’s host family, we were able to understand that he believes he’ll have a better opportunity to work and in life if he stays here.John will undoubtedly make a smooth transition into the loving family who opens their heart and home to him.
Shaine is 11 years old and likes to be around people. She would do well in a family with older children she can look up to. She is a good helper around the house and makes her own bed every morning without being told. She eats well and will eat anything offered to her. This summer she is learning to swim and ride a horse. Initially, she did not want to come near the water, but she loves it now. She went down the slide numerous times. She knows how to jump rope and dribbles a basketball very well. Shaine will cry for no apparent reason. She does well with consistency. She also does well if you explain the plans for the day, so she knows what to expect. Shaine is Hep B positive. Herbackground information states there is slight developmental delay. I believe it is partly because she is easily distracted and does not always focus on what she is being taught. She is loving her time here in Texas!
Xiao is sweet, energetic, curious and smart. He is quick to smile and is very kind to others when he feels safe. We suspect that Xiao has Cornelia DeLange Syndrome but is one of the cases that does not have severe mental retardation as Xiao is very bright. He can easily perform basic hygiene tasks and is great eating with chop sticks! He loves to count and recognizes numbers wherever we go. Xiao also loves to look at animal books and hear the sounds that animals make. He does have some speech delays but that doesn’t stop him from communicating. We have taught him a little bit of ASL and he is catching on fast! Xiao will also repeat English words and likes to make animal sounds. A speech therapist could help him in this area and give more information about his delays. He loves music and dancing and will make up songs and perform them. He is full of energy and loves to play but like many little boys, he needs to be watched so his curiosity doesn’t get him into trouble. Xiao does well when he has a good example so older siblings would be ideal. He is very sweet and wants to please those around him. He is very social and loves to meet new people. Xiao will thrive in an understanding and loving family with consistent boundaries.
Jay is a good boy and though he is currently listed as 13 years old, he is believed to be younger. His age is currently under review to lower with the recommendation from U.S. doctor and dentist. Jay thrives with structure and knowing what his expectations are. He wants to know the “why” behind the rules, but when he understands the rules and why he should follow them, he is the first to comply and remind us if we are forgetting. When he understands how he fits into a situation, he loves to be the helper and the good boy. On first coming to the States, everything was different and had a hard time with all the newness of all that was around him. It was very disorienting for him and one of the first things he asked for was a map to try to figure out where he was. He is cognitively on target, but like most children really need the support and encouragement to push himself to his potential. He loves tinkering with items such as flashlights and remote control cars. He likes to take them apart (with permission) and use the parts to create various battery powered circuits. He has a more cautious nature and likes to be introduced to new experiences gradually. His only “need” listed in his file is chronic Hep B and when he had his physical in the States the doctor mentioned he heard a systolic heart murmur that he felt was most likely benign. Neither have any impact on his daily life, he plays and appears physically healthy like any other kid. Jay is attaching very well and would make a great addition to a family that was committed to helping him through the transitions that come with adoption. He thrives on the honest positive praise of those he feels connected to. He has so much potential and has already come so far in a few short weeks. He is currently being hosted in the Dallas area.

Wade is a sweet 7 year old boy who has been diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. The cardiologist felt that Wade received the surgeries he needs while in China, and is doing well. His heart condition does not keep him from playing like any other seven year old boy! He has a happy disposition and loves playing with other children. He is bright and catches on to new things quickly. Although his notes say that he’s had no formal schooling because he was recovering from his surgery, he can add simple numbers, easily completes puzzles, and colors inside the lines. He also likes to look at books. He is usually well-behaved, but responds well to redirection if needed. He loves to help around the house and always jumps in to help when he sees that something needs to be done. Wade has grown to like cats and dogs while he’s been here. He is a Batman fan and notices all things Batman. He is a great little boy and will make a great addition to a family!
