Hi, I’m DJ and I am 4 years old. I am a wonderful helper around the orphanage! I came into care when I was 2 years old because I had a meningocele. I had surgery for this in 2011 and my growth and development are on target! I am a little behind in my language development, but I can understand instructions and I always try to do things independently. I am working on getting potty trained, but it can be a little difficult since I had my meningocele. I am able to do all the same things as my friends physically. I love to throw and catch my ball! I like to watch cartoons, try new foods, and play with my friends.
Hi, I’m Haley and I am 12 years old! When I was younger I had clubbed feet, but I had surgery to correct this. After my surgery, I had to wear corrective shoes but now you cannot tell that I ever had problems walking! I am going to school and I am currently in the Special Education classes because of how my feet look, I am not able to attend regular classes. My friends at Half the Sky help me to learn more and they say that I am very studious and kind. I love to help around the house. I always help my foster mother to clean because she works so hard.
Hi, I’m Hudson and I am 2 and a half! I love to ride on my toy horse. I was born with a facial cleft, but I had surgery for it and it has been repaired. I can hear my caregivers when they speak to me, follow their voices, and look for my toys when they are hidden. My caregivers think that I am able to fully hear. I am able to speak and identify objects that are asked. I can call for my caregivers and identify them by name. My facial cleft has had no affect on my eating or drinking! I can identify all my body parts and my caregivers think that I am very smart! I know my animals, colors, and my fruits and veggies!
Hi, I’m Tim and I am 8 years old. I used to have something called clubbed feet, but I had surgery in 2007 and I am doing great! My right foot is still slightly clubbed, but I am able to fully walk on my own and participate in all activities. I have been very healthy since then, too! I go to school and I am a great student. I love to play with my friends and be active!
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.

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!
