More Waiting Children

Benji is an adorable, round-faced boy with big eyes and a smile that melts your heart. I wish I could show you his pictures--he looks like a real flirt! He is not part of our Hope Journey program, but is on our private list and is in need of a family. Benji will be turning 6 in June and has some finger and toe deformities. He has been living in a foster family since he was 4 months old. He is from a part of China that is heavily Muslim. He is active and clever and loves to be the center of attention. He is very inquisitive and asks many questions. Despite his differences, he is able to hold a pen to draw and could probably teach you or I a thing or two:-) If you would be interested in considering Benji, please contact me right away.

Niva is almost 7 years old and has a repaired cleft lip and palate. She is a very active girl, but is somewhat shy in front of strangers. She is very feminine and girlie, although she loves to play outside and wears a short, spunky haircut. She likes to help younger children. She has used sign language in the past to communicate because her cleft made her difficult to understand. She has been under the loving care of a foster family for many years. She will likely need another surgery to close the remaining hole in her palate.

Wesley and Webster are twin 12 year old boys. They are very sweet, sensitive boys who like to sing and talk with their peers. They can take care of their daily tasks by themselves and are seen standing in their photos together. Wesley wants to be a doctor if he can realize his dream of walking "like a normal person" one day. But he needs to know that he can be a doctor in the U.S. even if he can't walk like a normal person! He needs someone to help him realize his dreams. Webster wants to be a policeman if he can stand like a normal person to help be of service to people like him, since it was a policeman that brought him to the orphanage. He is very interested in school and dedicated to learning. They have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and have had some treatment and rehabilitation services. They desire a family to help them thrive and reach their full potential before their time runs out for adoption.

Lynn is almost 8 years old and has some finger and toe differences. She is a nice, sweet girl and is in the second grade. Despite her hand and foot differences, she is able to do activities, such as sweeping the floor and cutting paper. She has formed close bonds with her caretakers and likes to cuddle with them and is well liked. She can sing songs, recite poems and write Chinese characters. She can also dress herself and skip on one foot alternately.

Leo is a 10 year old boy who has a hand deformity. He is outgoing, active, polite, lovely and can be stubborn at times. He gets along well with both the staff and the other children at the orphanage. He likes to play games and sports. He studies hard and often helps his caretakers with the younger children. He can take care of all of his daily living tasks, including getting dressed.

Samantha is an adorable 4 year old girl who has an cute nickname in Chinese that matches her captivating smile. She has some joint problems, but has made great strides in the last couple of years. She can walk stably and hold pens to draw. She can feed herself and get dressed. She is extroverted and active and likes to be close to others. She is envious of the children who get adopted and wants a family of her own.

Henry is a cute 12 year old boy with dimples that light up the room. Henry has club foot, but it doesn't stop him! He is an active boy who is lovely, outgoing and a good helper to his teachers. He loves sports and is one of the fastest always winning first. He has gained a nickname, which is the equivalent to "speedy." He wants a family of his own. Do we have the next Olympian here?

Please contact me if you have any interst in any of these children before we have to return their files next month--time is short!
