Two older boys need special homes

The need for a family does not go away just because the children are older. As I well know, no matter how OLD I am, family gives me a sense of belonging and accountability. These two boys are older, and if they were younger, families would be lining up to say YES… please read and consider them…

western US

This young boy is only 6. He has been diagnosed with Angelman syndrome. He can say a few words and communicate with pointing and grunts. He walks and loves to take baths. He can feed himself but has trouble with utensils. He is healthy and does not require any medication!

He is not potty trained. He hates when someone takes things from him and gets scared when he is somewhere unfamiliar with noises he can’t understand.

He likes toys that light up and closing and opening doors. If you have a trampoline and love to go outside, he would enjoy being  with you!! He takes pleasure in riding in the car.

HE is in the NORTH WEST… and WAITING!!

(Gosh, he is one that … yep, I would be saying YES to… can’t stand it…. so someone has to say YES for me🙂

An Eleven year old boy is waiting with suspected FAS and/or autism. He is not diagnosed with either, but his family says he has trouble with cause and effect and struggles socially. This child needs a family to help him learn social behavior. He is NOT violent and does NOT have rages. He has to be supervised since he gets into things without understanding whether they are safe or not. He plays with younger children that are the same emotional and social age as he is… He is small for his age.

He has an IEP in school. His family lives where there are not services to help their son. Also, the school is very small and, even though an IEP is in place, they do not have the staff to give him what he needs.

He loves to climb trees, play video games and swim… He also is described as a great helper🙂

He is located in the NE part of the US.

URGENT Four month old baby boy in a SE state needs a special family

US_map-South_East[1]

This little guy is biracial and was born in a SE state in the US. He is now approximately four months old. During his premature birth, he experienced some trauma that resulted in a grade 4 intraventricular hemorrhage. He currently has a VENTRICULAR-PERITONEAL shunt due to hydrocephalus. He has seizures that are being controlled by medication. He is 4 months old ( 2 months adjusted) and is growing well. He is having trouble currently with acid reflux. Due to his traumatic birth injury and subsequent hemorrhage, he is at risk for moderate to severe cerebral palsy.

The birth parents have no special requests as to what family they are looking for; so, if you have been waiting for a little boy to love, he may be waiting just for YOU!  The birth parents do wish for an open adoption! Sara from Special Angels Adoption has pictures and a video of this little guy to share with families that are homestudy ready and sign the non disclosure agreement with Special Angels ( there is NO FEE to sign this agreement).

10492276_302967853217775_1916457839366216664_n[1]

This situation is being directly placed through Special  Angels adoption. There is  a set fee of $8500 if you are selected by the family which includes TPR and ICPC and placement fees;

post placement, travel fees are not included in the above fee.

Ohio families: this fee would also include finalization. Families from other states, finalization is extra.

 For more information about this little baby boy;

contact:  sara@specialangelsadoption.org 

If he is not your little guy, please pray for this little one and his birth family! And share! I KNOW his adoptive family is just waiting to hear about him!!

Little one in AZ with DS needs an adoptive home

I was given permission to share the word about Shia by Mother Goose Adoptions:

Oh my gosh guys, I can’t take it!! So very precious!! In my heart of hearts, I would love to adopt another little one with Down syndrome!! They are ornery, stubborn, cute as all get out, opinionated, loving, and although they have multiple health issues, their unique way to view the world somehow adds such variety and spice to life… I could go on… Here is Shia:

Shia is a three year old very special little boy with an extra chromosome. He has overcome many health issues related to his Down Syndrome but the vast majority of those issues seem to be behind him now.

He is on a trach but has not been vented for two years. He is also on a feeding tube. His remaining issues are primarily developmental as he is at the developmental age of a 6-9 months old. He can sit with assistance and is working on his core strength to sit unaided and to hopefully learn to scoot or crawl this next year. He is aware of interactions and those he knows but is non-verbal.

An AZ family would be best so his current nurses and therapies could be more easily continued but an out of state family will be considered if they are familiar with the “system” where they live.  If you are from AZ or KNOW you can transfer his services to your state: contact  Creating Christian Families the adoption division of Mother Goose adoptions:

web site:  http://miraclesofgrace.com/

 email: adoptivefamilies@mothergooseadoptions.com

 

Please help us spread the word.

Someone is going to be so very blessed!

Families needed for 7 adoption domestic adoption situations!

Special Angels Adoption

10492276_302967853217775_1916457839366216664_n[1]

Has an urgent need for homestudy ready families for 7 domestic ( right here in the US) situations. Special Angels is working directly with the birth families of these little ones. These situations are not fost-adoptions. These little ones are waiting for families that will encourage them to reach their full potential; that will celebrate every small and large victory; and will love them forever.

I know there are MANY families that are waiting and their hearts are drawn to the special ones…the ones who wait a bit longer, the ones who need a bit more…the ones who show love in their own way…. If you have a homestudy that approves you to adopt children or infants with special needs; if you are financially ready,  Sara from Special Angels adoption would LOVE to hear from you!!

children

  •  1. baby girl born very premature with a brain bleed and hydrachepalus

  •  2. baby girl born a little early with microcephaly and other brain issues

  •  3. baby boy with hydrocephalus and brain bleed

  •  4. 4 year old boy with developmental delays of unknown cause

  •  5. 4 year old boy with hydrocephalus and septo-optic dysplasia

  •  6. 6 year old boy with Angelman syndrome

  •  7. 8 year old boy that is blind

Most of these situations are being directly placed by Special  Angels adoption. These situations have a set fee of $8500 which includes TPR and ICPC and placement fees;

post placement, travel and finalization will be extra unless you live in OH.

Ohio families this fee would also include finalization.

If any of these babies or children make your heart jump…make you want to reach for the phone or email… more information is available:

contact sara@specialangelsadoption.org 

she is waiting to have families to MATCH with these little ones.

IF you do not have a current homestudy or are thinking you need to amend your homestudy to include children or babies with special needs: When you are ready… contact Sara; she always needs families!!  In some states if you have a foster/adoption homestudy you MAY be able to purchase it. However, in some states and homestudies completed through some foster/adopt agencies this is not an option. So find OUT if this is an option BEFORE you contact sara!

If these children and babies are not a good match for your family;

you can HELP by sharing!!

Thank you all so much for helping to find families for these little ones !!

The expectant father is known and supports the adoption plan. The prospective birth father has a diagnosis of bipolar and schizophrenia that is managed by daily medication.

 

This little blessing will be 3/4 African American and 1/4 Caucasian. The expectant family is requesting an adoptive family that is either a single parent or a traditional family. They are not open to same sex couples.

Profiles need to be sent by 7/6/2016 so there is a bit of urgency with this situation!!

And so ON

When it gets to the point where neither Ray or I can go to the store without someone asking how he is… it is time to update my blog and let our very concerned friends and family know how we really are:

13315285_10206452374732106_163823998473672625_n[1]

First emotionally, it had been a very hard and wearing year for both of us. Ray’s life has been changed forever. Hope remains alive; he hopes and prays that God will heal him. He hopes and prays the researchers find a cure, and he  hopes and prays he makes the right decisions with choosing doctors, choosing treatments, etc. Lots of pressure on Ray to do that, and he really could use your prayers.

As for my emotional state, it is all over the map. I am beginning the change of life in the midst of all of this, so that surely doesn’t help. The pressure of knowing what is, what can happen, and what did happen is sometimes too much to take…so I garden, listen to music REAL loud, I hug my kids maybe too tight, or not at all, might get a little too silly… but then reality strikes again… But God…underneath is the everlasting arms that support, strengthen and hold me when it is just too much…

Screenshot (83)

Second: financially… we bought a business the year before Ray was diagnosed… and like most people used our house as collateral. The bank said it was only temporary, three years until they saw the business was successful and we were making a profit… Then Ray got sick… If you are local and need tires; car or truck, lawnmower, heavy equipment, quad, motor home, trailer, you name it; have a flat, have a big rig or a dump truck and need tires…we sure could use your support. Those of you that have supported our business; we thank you SO much…and there are many of you who have…We are not being successful or making a profit since much of our business is large truck tires…and you all know what happened to the coal industry and the fracking industry here in PA… And with Ray so very sick…So we are struggling to hang onto our business…and our house… Through all of this, God keeps asking this underlying question…”am I enough”…and to be honest, I am struggling with answering that…

 

And lastly, medically…with the newest drug Daratumamab he has shown some response, some stabilization of his numbers and better hemoglobin, wbc and kidney function…however, we are 3 months in and the length of effectiveness with this immunotherapy averages 7 months. It has been a nice reprieve though. At the last specialist appointment, he requested we go to a different specialist since he has never had a patient live this long with such chronically high protein numbers (how they measure the cancer)…so that was a bit of a blow. Also, Ray had bone scans done to see how things have changed this past year with his bone densities. He has a complete collapse of T12 which is new. Lunacies in both femurs, both hips, all along his spine and his rib cage. His structure is in dire straits. We covet your prayer, we love all of you and know that your prayers help with our daily struggle to remain strong for our children, calm for our own sanity, and driven to make this thing called life matter… Each day matters, each one…

One last thing…take care of yourself, take care of your love…don’t live life like you have forever…you don’t, none of us do.

Connecticut Family Needed

 connecticut

The National Down syndrome Adoption Network (NDSAN) is urgently seeking a family who lives in Connecticut who has a current homestudy and MAPP training. Does NOT require a foster care homestudy, just the MAPP training. The homestudy could be an agency or licensed social worker homestudy as long as the MAPP training is completed. http://adoption.about.com/od/fostering/f/psmapp.htm

There is a 17 year old girl who is waiting for her special home. She has Down syndrome and is in foster care. She is still “legal risk” but will not be returned to her biological parents. ( Some states or counties wait for an identified placement before they terminate parental rights). She is considered “Medically fragile” because she has diabetes and requires 5-7 insulin shots per day. Please only CT families!! She has no preferences for family make up and neither does the state.

If this young lady sounds like a great fit for YOUR family ;

contact Stephanie at ndsan dot org : stephanie@ndsan.org for more information!

If she is NOT a good match for YOUR family, please share so she can find a family that will love her forever. I know she had a perfect family, but they just need to find each other!!
