October 31- Leah

RR 31 for 21
Get It Down; 31 for 21

Isn't she stunning? Leah is just 6 months old and is absolutely beautiful! As with the previous few days' posts, we are so blessed to finally have some children referred from this country. Country fees have been reduced by $14k and income requirements reduced as well!! Orphanage care is outstanding in comparison to other countries. The children are very well loved and cared for here. But it is still never the same as having a loving family of their own, and the advantages of being raised in the United States.

Ruslana is a beautiful little girl. She is almost 4 years old and needs a family NOW! She has brown hair and deep brown eyes. She is already 3 and facing institutionalization. Ruslana has particularly low tone, and has not had therapy, so she is still not walking. However, we all know that with therapy and focus and a loving family, she will blossom and show the world just how amazing and resilient our children really are!

October 21- Three for the 21st! Anna, Elisa, and Danylo!

RR 31 for 21
Get It Down; 31 for 21

Anna

What a darling, happy little girl! And a blessed one too, that she has not been sent to the institution yet. YOU can save her from that fate! Light brown hair, blue eyes, and a smile that can light up a room!

Miss Anna was born with an ASD, but that has not slowed her down! She is described as quite high functioning! She can run and jump and climb and is a very active, and social little girl.

Anna turned 4 in May! She needs a family NOW.

Elisa

Little Elisa is as sweet as they come! But she also struggles with some significant heart defects, including an aneurysm of the interatrial septum, ASD II (less than 1 mm), and a minor PDA. She does have low tone, and likes to let her mouth hang open, so she will definitely benefit from some feeding and speech therapy. She may have some strabismus as well. Elisa is just 20 months old and will thrive in a home environment!

Danylo

Danylo is a handsome and BLESSED little boy because he was able to have surgery to repair his AV canal already! This is so rare (for an orphan to have access to life-saving surgery), so we know God has a greater plan for Danylo's life! Danylo also has a kidney malformation, but a nephrectomy was performed and he is doing well after his surgery. Often times a nephrectomy is performed to remove cancerous cells, but Danylo's was strictly for a malformation. He will definitely need to be followed by a cardiologist and an internist once here at home.

Danylo has blonde hair and big blue eyes. He is typically happy and doing much better now that his heart and kidney is healing and functioning properly. He is just 16 months old!

Get It Down; 31 for 21

 

Marina is a cutie! She has brown hair and brown eyes, with a warm, loving, affectionate smile. She is HEALTHY, with no heart or other medical complications. Marina is a pretty high functioning little girl! She is able to walk on her own, feed herself, and tries to dress herself as well. She has been well taken care of, and is much closer to the size of a typical 4 year old than some of our previously adopted 4 year olds!

RR 31 for 21
Get It Down; 31 for 21

Little Adam is about 2 years old and such a cutie! He's one of the first referrals from his country and we're excited about the new program. The children are very well cared for here but it's not the same as a loving family and forever home.
