This post features four special little girls who are listed with Heartsent Adoptions. Please let them know if you are interested in any of these treasures!

Meet Julia


Julia is 11 years old (old photos – new ones coming soon). She has ptosis (drooping eyelid – can be corrected), and a CHD which was diagnosed in 2010. She has not received any surgery, or had any further tests on her heart since 2010. She is able to keep up with her peers while running, jumping, and playing, and is a very good student! Julia speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin. Her study habits are very good, and she is a very intelligent girl. Julia likes to spend her spare time playing with her friends, and shares her snacks with them. Julia has expressed her desire to be adopted, and is very eager to have her own family.

Meet Samantha


Samantha is a beautiful little girl who is 6 years old. She came into care as an infant, and was found to have Down syndrome. Samantha’s motor skills are good, and she has the typical language delays. She is able to speak, but not always clearly. She has been healthy, and they report no issues with her heart. Samantha is an active little girl, who enjoys playing with toys. She loves to be held. Samantha likes to “look pretty” (there goes the clothes budget), and loves to imitate singing and dancing on the TV. This precious little one is waiting for a family of her own!

Meet Delaney


Delaney is a very pretty girl who is 9 years old. She has a diagnosis of mild CP, and had surgery on her right Achilles tendon when she was 1 year old. The surgery was not a success, and she tends to point her right toes downward when she walks. She also had surgery on her right arm (surgery notes are in her file), which seemed to help the arm, but her right hand cannot tightly grasp objects. Delaney writes, eats, etc. with her left hand. An early CT scan reports a small arachnoid cyst in the left lateral ventricle. This scan was done in 2005, no treatment was reported, and there is no mention of it in any of her recent reports. She is a resourceful girl, who finds a way to compensate for her right hand and foot. She is able to walk and run with the other kids, but her coordination is not as good as her peers. Delaney is smart, and does very well in school. They report she is happy, out-going, likes to sing and dance…and can sometimes be obstinate. (Sounds like a typical kid to me!) Her favorite activity is going out with her foster mom to buy new clothes. Delaney will be a sweet addition to your family. Please help her find a mom and dad!
