A Helping Hand has just a few more days to find forever families for these five children… please help spread the word!
This precious little girl with the plaid jacket is Angela. Angela was born in May, 2008 so she is currently 4 years old. Angela’s referral documents indicate she is fostered by “Half The Sky” being cared for by an adoring and caring grandmother. Angela likes to be talked to while in Grandma’s arms. She is described as docile and never noisy. Angela’s special need is hexadactyly, having an extra finger between the thumb and index fingers on her left hand. According to x-rays, she has complete structure of all the bones of the right hand and an incurvation of her right thumb. She also has a complex heart condition. It is not known whether Angela has yet had surgery. This sweet girl needs a family…could she be your daughter?
Beautiful Lucinda in the pink coat will be 3 years old in November. She had heart surgery in February, 2010 which was successful according to her medical documents. She is described as “a bit fat, with good spirit, eating and sleeping.” Lucinda shows delayed intelligence development and is also diagnosed with inflexibility of the right hand. There is mention of a possible hearing impediment with no further information. Becoming part of a loving family can make the biggest difference in the life of a child. Do you have room for Lucinda in yours?
Danny will turn 7 years old this summer. His diagnosis is thalassemia. Because of his anemia, he goes to the hospital for blood transfusions every two months. His is strong and never cries when they insert the needle for the transfusion. It is reported that the doctors and nurses like him. Currently, he is in an orphanage and shares his living space with 20 other 3-6 year old kids. He likes all food and is not picky. He is toilet trained and although he is a deep sleeper, he will get up if he needs to visit the bathroom through the night. Danny is described as a lovely, strong and likeable child. He needs a family to love him!!!
Justin turned 7 years old in the spring. He has been diagnosed with Mediterranean anemia. The information we have is outdated and we are currently in the process of receiving updates. Early information diagnosed him with thalassemia and mild dystrophy. He was having blood transfusions every 1-2 months, if needed, or hemoglobin electrophoresis. They did not allow him to go to school as a normal child because he goes to the hospital for blood transfusions irregularly. He is described as an active child with a bright smile. He loves outdoor activities but will sit attentively to play with toys or watch TV. At age 1-1/2 he could sit but not walk. Please check back in to see the new information we have on Justin. We know his adorable smile will melt someone’s heart!
This precious little guy (Hunter) just turned 8 years old. His diagnosis is cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He has received excellent care with ankle braces and began walking with the help of a walker at first. He is much more active than before, always greeting people with a smile. The epilepsy was not confirmed as they wanted to do an EEG when he had episodes of twitching. The “twitching” occurred fewer and fewer times and did not last as long. The last translated information we have is from the summer of 2010. A translation of the newest information has been requested, so please check back to see the latest about this precious little guy!!
