There are many children waiting in China that are deaf and hard of hearing. This week we wanted to spotlight some of our cuties to find them a forever home.
If you have questions about these little ones or would like to learn more about them, please contact Jessie@gwca.org.
Hi, I’m Brian and I love to play outside! I am 5 years old and I am Deaf. I am unable to speak verbally but I communicate with my caregivers through mimicking my friends and gestures. I have not been taught sign language yet either. I am very smiley and I like to please my caregivers through my actions. I get along really well with my friends, but sometimes I can get frustrated that we cannot communicate. I love to ride my bike and play with any type of ball!
Hi, I’m Jackson and I love anything that bounces. I am 5 years old and I have Tetrology of Fallot heart condition. I had surgery for this in 2011 and the doctors checked my heart in 2012 and it is functioning well! I am unable to hear my friends and caregivers because I am hard of hearing. I have been using a hearing aid and it has been helping. I go to therapy and I am getting stronger and learning new words! In 2013 the doctors found a cataract in my eye and I will be having surgery for this pretty soon. I love to smile and my caregivers say that I am funny when I laugh!
Hi, I’m Amber! I just turned 6 years old and I am a cutie! When I was younger, I had a hard time digesting my food because I had a deformity in my intestines. I had surgery in 2008 for this and it has been corrected. My speech is behind my friends because I am not able to hear fully. I can still communicate with my caregivers and let them know what I need, and I am able to follow their instructions. One of my legs is a little weak, but I am able to walk, run, and go upstairs independently. I am able to get dressed by myself and I know my shapes and colors. I love to look at picture books and my caregivers say that I am very kind.
Hi, I’m Dylan! I am 6 years old and I love to look at books. I have been diagnosed as Deaf and due to this, I am unable to communicate. I tell my caregivers what I need by gestures, but I have not learned sign language yet. I like to look through books and copy Chinese characters. I am very helpful around the house and I can take care of all my own needs. Even though I cannot talk with my friends, I love to play with them. My caregivers say that I am very caring and kind!
Hi! I’m Kendall and I just turned 2 years old. Although I am a quiet girl I am close to my caretakers. My left eye has corneal degeneration and I am missing my right eye. I still have troubles with my hearing and it has made it hard to keep up with the other kids my age. I can stand up on my own but I need a little help walking around. I am really good at recognizing the voice of familiar people and when I hear music I sure do like to dance around.

China | 3 years old | Girl
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
You can contact the China Home Finding Team at (512)323-9595 if you would like to learn more about adopting Fiona. We hope we are able to find Fiona her Forever Family soon!
