Perry is home! Unfortunately, Declan aged out before a family was found 😦
Hudson is still waiting!
In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child with you who is available for adoption and listed through the adoption advocacy website Reece’s Rainbow. All the kids who are listed on RR from Sarah’s Covenant Homes, India, the focus of my previous posts, have been posted about, so now I am focusing on a few kids or a sibling group listed on the site each Friday going forward. When more SCH kids are listed, I’ll continue to feature them!
Please note that the names used on RR are usually not the childrens’ real names, and their real names will only be shared with seriously interested families in order to protect their identity.
All three of today’s kids are at risk of aging out! The age-out year is 14 in this particular Asian country.
The first featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Hudson! Let’s find his family! Hudson was born in 2006, lives in an Asian country, and is waiting for his family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms!
There is a $1,000 agency grant for Hudson’s adoption with a specific agency. He is also eligible for an Older Child Grant! Grant funding is dependent on a completed application and available funds. For more information, visit: Other Angels Older Child Grant
PD: 6-photo collage of Hudson, who has brown eyes, black hair, & wears black-rimmed glasses. He is doing a variety of activities, including holding a finger puppet, standing in front of a train map wearing a backpack, swimming in a pool, & hiking w/ greenery around him.
Medical about Hudson
Hudson has been diagnosed HIV+. Children with HIV can live long, meaningful lives with proper medication therapy, which when treated is a manageable chronic illness. They are just the same as all other children and should not be stigmatized by their diagnosis! Take some time to learn about HIV if you are considering adopting a child who has the virus.
Update June 2019:
Hudson graduated from elementary school; however, due to a poor foundation, his actual learning ability is about at the third grade level. At present, his teachers have worked out a study plan for Hudson, to help complete basic learning and to master Pinyin and basic mathematical operations skillfully.
Though not his favorite thing, Hudson attends school, where he is in 4th grade and his academic performance is average. His gross and fine motor skills are all developed – he can run, jump on one foot, catch a ball, and use chopsticks.
Other Info About Hudson
Several new pictures are available!! Hudson is outgoing and actively interacts with people. This does not exclude communicating with strangers. He likes to play mobile games, with weak self-control.
He listens to other people’s opinions and is willing to express his own ideas; however, he is accustomed to using doubtful language in verbal communication with a tough tone, which may lead to conflicts with others. Occasionally, he loses self-control over his emotions. At present, his habits have improved and personal hygiene habits have been established and maintained.
PD: Hudson wears a tie-dye t-shirt under a blue, white, & purple hoodie, standing outside in front of a tree. He is smiling, wearing black square-rimmed glasses.
Hudson is a great kid who is all-boy. He spent about two years in the local orphanage, where he was taken care of by a blind couple who worked at the orphanage before being moved to a group home with other children who also have HIV. Hudson is described as an active and talkative boy who likes to play games with his peers. He is sometimes impatient, but gets along well with other children and communicates easily with adults. He is close to three specific staff members at the group home. Hudson enjoys playing with toys, listening to music, and playing video games. He is said to especially have a passion for computers and video games. The staff members say that, given the right supports and a chance, he could have a good chance to make big achievements in this field. Hudson is also a nature-lover and enjoys being outdoors. He is very observant. Hudson is a little afraid of water and heights. Hudson’s care center hopes he can find a loving family who will love him for who he is, help him with his education, encourage him to pursue his passion, and give him the attention that only a forever family can.
Aged out Before a family was found
Today’s second featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Declan! Let’s find his family! He was born in October 2005, lives in an Asian country, and is waiting for his family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms! He is eligible for an Older Child Grant! Grant funding is dependent on a completed application and available funds.

PD: A 3-photo collage of Declan, wearing a red coat in 2 photos & a black coat in the 3rd, sitting on a rocking horse. Declan has light blonde/white hair due to albinism.
Medical About Declan
Declan was born with albinism, and has been diagnosed with nystagmus (involuntary eye movements usually characterized by shaking or vibrating, which can affect vision).
He can’t see objects clearly due to his weakened vision, so his actions can seem a bit timid and slow, but he sees colors fine.
Declan attends school, where he makes average grades. It is said that he listens carefully to teachers and respects them. He also loves to do hard work and earns awards from teachers. Declan enjoys numbers and studying. He is a leader who unites his classmates. He loves to be outside in all types of weather, including snow. He gets along well with other children, and likes playing games and playing on outdoor playground equipment.
Other Info About Declan
Declan is an easy-going, quiet boy who was admitted to the orphanage as a newborn and has lived there ever since. Once he gets to know you a little, he becomes talkative and has a ready smile. He has strong language skills and expresses himself well. He adapts easily and has strong self-care skills. Declan’s gross motor development is stronger than his fine motor skills. When it comes to eating, Declan has a reputation for having possibly the largest appetite in the dining room! Declan has waited long enough for a family – please help us find this great boy a family!
Today’s third featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Perry! Let’s find his family! He was born in 2005, lives in an Asian country, and is waiting for his family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms!
There is an agency which will waive their adoption fees (equivalent of an $8,000 grant) for Perry’s family. He is also eligible for an Older Child Grant! Grant funding is dependent on a completed application and available funds. For more information, visit: Other Angels Older Child Grant
PD: A 9-photo collage of Perry doing various activities, including drawing, working on a project, spending time outdoors, & attending a party. He has shaved black hair & brown eyes, & is a wheelchair user.
Medical about Perry
Perry has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, for which he uses a wheelchair. He is fully continent, but does not walk. Perry needs a family who will see past the wheelchair and see the amazing child he is, and the terrific son they could be missing out on!
Other Information About Perry
Perry is a handsome and sweet, recently-turned-12-year-old boy who is full of smiles and so very ready to have a family of his own! Perry participated in an “Ambassadors of Hope” camp in the fall of 2015. He was the oldest of all the kids in his group at just ten years old. Perry draws well and is a good-natured boy who follows directions and shares with others. There is a terrific blog post about Perry that really shows just how special this sweet boy is. Please help us spread the word about Perry! Many videos of him are available.
His volunteer at that camp stated:
“At first glance, [Perry] seemed to have so much going against him that he could have been forgiven for feeling defeated; instead, Perry smiled easily and stayed positive despite the cerebral palsy which put him in a wheelchair, and left him in an orphanage.”
