In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child or group of children with you who are 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.
Today’s first featured ‘Find Me Friday’ child is: Daisy! She lives in an Asian country and is waiting for her family to find her. She is available to married couples and single mothers! DAISY IS AT RISK OF AGING OUT! She must be adopted by her 14th birthday.
Daisy is eligible for an Older Child Grant, dependent on a completed application and available funds. For more information, visit: Other Angels Older Child Grant
PD: Daisy stands outside, wearing a blue winter coat, smiling. She has very short black hair & dark brown almond-shaped eyes. She is bringing her hands together in front of her.
DAisy’s Medical History
Daisy has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and congenital heart disease.
From the update dated March 2019 (see more in next section, below):
Daisy actively participates in activities organized by her teacher. Her fine motor skills are outstanding, and she has amazing hands-on ability, like painting and making handmade goods. She can read, work with numbers, and is good at writing. Her language ability is slightly higher than her peers. She listens to things adults explain. She will actively help teachers and aunts with their work.
Other information About Daisy
Daisy was born in July 2006. She was 2 years old at the time of her arrival to the institute; she could neither walk nor speak at the time. She was also very skinny, with a large head. Following an initial physical examination, it was found she had a congenital heart disease. She had a lackluster complexion and dull eyes. The caretakers thought it was a miracle she would survive. She has a strong will to live, and has a healthy appetite.
Updated March 2019:
Daisy’s intelligence is well-developed. She cares for other children, and is gentle, well-behaved, sensible, and obedient. She moves well; her limbs are flexible and move easily. Daisy is more and more lively, optimistic, positive, and easily integrates into group life. She is very close to teachers and aunts, and has very good relationships with other children. She is especially close to the two children she acts like a sister to, taking care of them and watching them in the courtyard. She is polite and can clearly express her needs. She eats a healthy variety, and is able to use chopsticks and a spoon well. She likes the color red, games, and playing with dolls and house.
Today’s second featured ‘Find Me Friday’ child is: Denny! He lives in an Asian country and is waiting for his family to find him. He is available to married couples and single moms. DENNY IS AT RISK OF AGING OUT! He must be adopted by his 14th birthday.
Denny is eligible for an Older Child Grant, dependent on a completed application and available funds. For more information, visit: Other Angels Older Child Grant
PD: Denny stands outside in front of some greenery, wearing a white tank top w/ red stripes & a cartoon Olympic skier, & a beaded necklace w/ a charm. He is smiling a big smile, squinting from the bright sun. His black hair is shaved into a mohawk style!
Note: Denny’s picture is most-likely old, since he looks fairly young in it.
denny’s Medical History
Denny has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus.
Denny studies at home, and a special education teacher visits him one or two times a week. He can catch up with his studies.
Other information About Denny
Denny was born in August 2006. Denny has got some spunk and personality! His orphanage has asked for help in advocating for him because they feel he is special and are surprised he has waited so long.
From an April 2015 update:
Denny’s mental development is normal. His language is behind his same-aged peers; he can only say one or two words at one time. If there is something new, he will ask: “What is it?”. Though he cannot speak a whole sentence, he can understand all directions from adults and can express his needs very well by words and body language. His response is quiet and he has good memory. He is fully potty trained.
Denny is introverted, but smiles a lot. He is stubborn sometimes, but is well-behaved and obedient. Denny’s gross motor skills are totally normal. He can run, walk, jump, and walk upstairs and downstairs. His fine motor skills are also normal. He is very attached to his foster grandma, and he cares for other kids. Denny is very helpful. His foster grandma was cooking congee and he saw it was overcooked, so he rushed to tell her right away. He helps take care of the younger kids in the family. Denny gets along well with other kids and adults around him. He has been with the same foster family since he was little.
