It’s the start of a new year and we’d like a new start for these sweet kids. Our featured kids this week need your help finding their forever home. Whether they are destined to be a part of your family or not, we need your help advocating for them. Share this page with anyone and everyone and let these kids start off the year right, finding their forever families!
Hi, my name is Bella and I am 6 years old! When I was born I had a meningocele and hydrocephalus. I had surgery to repair my meningocele and my hydrocephalus has been corrected as well, and I did not even need surgery. Both of my feet are slightly clubbed, but I am getting therapies to help this! I am able to count, sing, and I know my shapes and colors. I am getting therapies through Half the Sky and living in a wonderful foster home that helps me to improve all my skills. My caregivers say that I am energetic, get along well with my friends, and I have big beautiful brown eyes!
My name is Dustin and I am 9 years old. My doctors tell me that I have congenital cerebral alloplasia but it does not have any affect on my daily life. I am a typical boy and all of my development is the same as the other kids. I am a pro at using chopsticks and can even wash my clothes all by myself! My foster family thinks I am a big help with the chores around the house. I have trouble lifting heavy things with my left hand and I can be a bit unsteady walking up stairs but I have big muscles on my right side to help. I get along well with my foster siblings and am always polite. I am a quiet boy and am always friendly towards others. I really like to read and listen to music. I get along well with my foster siblings and am always polite.
I’m Lexi and I am 11 years old. I am a very outgoing girl and I get along well with the other children. My doctors say that I have mild exotropia and I have a 2cm hemangioma on my chest. I am studying in the kindergarten class in the orphanage since I am a bit behind my friends. I think it’s because I have a bad memory but I am working hard to catch up. My teacher even helps me recite Tang poetry so that I can catch up. My foster mother also helps me with my homework and I am trying to get better at expressing myself and communicating with adults. I don’t always understand their questions and sometimes they don’t understand mine. I am a big helper with the house chores and I am getting along well with my foster family.
Hi, I’m Gerald and I am 19 months old! When I was born I had a meningocele and chari malformations in my skull. I had surgery for this when I was very young and I am working hard to recover! I am able to sit and play all by myself. I can crawl and I am trying to learn to walk, but my left foot is a little bit clubbed. I can use my arms just fine and this helps me to play with my toys all day. My caregivers say that I am very cute and love to smile. When my caregivers talk to me I love to clap, laugh, and get very excited!
Hi, I’m Sawyer and I love to play with anything with wheels. I have a dropped foot and it causes me to walk a little bit slower, but it doesn’t stop me from playing and being super active. I came into care when I was 3 years old and I have not been sick since then. I am doing great in school at the orphanage and I make excellent grades! My caregivers say that I am talkative and I am kind. I love to play with any type of toy and I especially love to build towers out of blocks!
