Meet Daniela


Born March of 2006, sweet Daniela is waiting on the shared list. She is listed as having Cerebral Palsy. Daniela is in foster care in the countryside near the orphanage. She has normal communication with her foster mother and people she is familiar with. Her personality is a bit introverted. She likes to play with other children in the neighborhood, but due to her gentle personality, some children would bully her during play, so her foster mother sometimes does not allow her to go out. She is well-behaved and follows directions. She is now attending school. She has waited for a family for a long time. Could this precious girl be your daughter?

Meet Yana


Yana will turn four years old in January. She is waiting on the shared list and can be adopted by a family or single heterosexual woman working with any agency. She is listed as having Cerebral Palsy. She needs someone to love her and help her overcome the obstacles that she will face in her life with this diagnosis.

    Thank you for posting about Jenny! She is my daughter’s best friend, and I had the opportunity to meet with her for several hours while I was in China, last year. She really wants a family, is sweet, with a contagious laugh. Feel free to ask any questions I can help answer about this sweet child.

      I would love to know what YOU think in regards to Jenny’s mental development compared to her peers. She is the age we are looking for, but the label of Down’s syndrome immediately means No for us……but it says that might be wrong….wondering your thoughts on it………She has such a pretty smile, you just can’t help but smile when you see her picture!!!! :)

        Her cognitive development seems to be on par with her peers. She is currently in 6th grade in school. The SWI will redo testing if a family wants. Was told through a source that it was taken off of another child’s file by accident. I have listened to her conversations with my daughter and it is very similar. Please feel free to ask anything else I might be able to answer. She is very sweet
