Hi I am Mariah! I am 7 years old. When I was younger I received a two-way Glenn operation and recovered well. I had a complete ASD; double outlets of right ventricle; severe pulmonary artery stenosis(under the valve), VSD(secondary), AO right arch right descending; and a formation of collateral circulation. I may need another surgery next year. I walk all by myself, jump, climb up and down the stairs and do most thinks on my own. I am a little behind my friends, but that is because as a young child I was very sick. I do enjoy my time playing with the other kids and enjoy sharing my toys with them.
Hi, I’m Garrett and I am 5 years old. I came to the orphanage when I was 8 months old because I am deaf. I used to be a little bit smaller than my friends, but with a lot of care from the orphanage I am doing great! I have not been taught any sign language yet, but I am still very social and love to play with my friends. I communicate to my caregivers with gestures that I have found express my needs. I love to watch cartoon and my favorite toys are my animal figurines. Great Wall got an update and they learned that I am doing great! I have been at the School for the Deaf for over 2 years and I am communicating fully in sign language. I am doing really well in school and I love to play football!
Hi, I’m Max and I am 8 years old! I love to play with any cars and planes! I was born with a cleft lip and palate, but I had surgery to repair it when I was just one year old. I may need another surgery on my cleft palate when I am a little older. I am very smart and I love to study in school. I can speak with my caregivers and friends without a problem! I have a big appetite but I love to eat all foods, even fruits and veggies! I am learning English words in school and I am getting great at them!
Hi, I’m Felicity and I am 4 years old. I was born with hydrocephalus and my head is still a little large. Due to this, I have a hard time sitting up and walking, but I am working hard on catching up with my motor skills. I am almost always in a great mood and I love to watch my friends play. I am able to pass toys back-and-forth in my hands and I can grab at toys I want. I am currently on a nutrition plan that is helping my development, and I also attend therapies. My caregivers say that I am a very happy kiddo!
Hello! My name is Wendell and I am a very energetic little boy. My doctors say that I have an abnormal development on my eye (possibly leucoma) and I am a bit thin. I haven’t ever had any serious illnesses but I am allergic to egg whites. Even though I have vision complications, I can still walk while holding onto the wall. I can listen for sounds to follow and can recognize familiar people’s voices. I am close with my caretakers and I like to imitate what they say. Overall, I am behind my friends in the orphanage, but I am working hard to try and catch up.

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!
