The family must sign a non-disclosure agreement with the placing agency.

As always, if this is not your baby, please share and pray so this little one can have a family right from the start. If you think this is YOUR baby … please look for information about this particular special need and be SURE… because the worst thing you can do is the birth family pick you and then you decide… well… maybe it is too much for me…. So research and pray and call!!

She wanted a home for Christmas, But Santa did not Deliver

She wanted a Home for Christmas, but Santa did not deliver

US_map-South_East[1]

In a Southeastern state, there is an eleven year old girl who, through no fault of her own, has been passed around from family member to family member… Her birth mother has decided it is enough and she really wants a more stable home for her daughter. Her birth mother has been diagnosed as bipolar/depressive.

11231809_10205758546296867_2173160434320979483_n[1]

 This little one has older siblings and it is thought the best family would have no children younger than her. She really needs an experienced parent or parents to love her and give her the structure she so badly needs. Her momma said she has always had trouble bonding with her little girl from the time she was born… her momma admits that they are a dysfunctional family and wants more for her daughter. This little one has been diagnosed with autism, but is very high functioning and the autism is mild; she does take two medications to help with some of the symptoms from this diagnosis.

The agency met with the little girl and she is excited to have a stable home. In the past, she really loved a beagle that they had for a time and wishes to have pets!! She plays outside. She loves the color purple!! She wants to have a basketball hoop in her new home. She wants to learn gymnastics and how to ride a horse…

There is so much more to tell about this very charming, smart, and curious little girl!!

If you are interested in adopting this little one who needs a family IMMEDIATELY and moved to a permanent home ASAP and have a current homestudy and can send it along with a profile ; please contact me at swissprimel@verizon.net and I will forward your email to the placing agency…

Fees are $10,000 for all agency fees. Attorney fees are extra.

THIS IS NOT A GUARDIANSHIP situation; so please do not reply if that is the only kind of situation you are considering; that just would not be fair to this little girl who needs something more…

IF she is NOT your little girl, please, please pray she finds her family today.

THIS IS NOT A REHOMING

This is not a picture of her sorry...Picture is only available to interested families.

This is not a picture of her sorry…Picture is only available to interested families.

There is little girl that is seven. A princess, loving to have her hair fixed pretty; nail polish and the works.

Twirling around with strips of paper, she just needs the music inside of her soul to dance. She needs a new family to help her grow into the lady that is inside of her.

Her momma just moved away from grandma and momma just cannot do it alone.

This little one is African American and diagnosed as mildly autistic. The agency has been looking for a family for a while and asked if I could help. I am praying that God raises up her family and they see this post. So please share it… Here is the information that I have:

th[7]

  • Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Fees: $11,000 including everything except finalization
  • Loves dogs
  • Is NOT aggressive or violent!!!
  • Shows her discomfort by withdrawing
  • Is not currently in school (was in school prior to moving)
  • Loves to be hugged
  • Covers her ears with loud noises

Still he waits

So many people are drawn to children with Down syndrome. There is just something about their stubbornness, their tenacity, their spirit that keeps fighting the odds, their even keel personalities… so unique each one, and the Love they return to us is unmeasurable…

Stefko still waits.  If you are frustrated with not being picked… the high cost of adoption…knowing God is calling you to adopt but there are just so many nos … The foster system is beyond slow… you are ready but where is your child?? Stefko still waits. Every child needs a family…

Stefko

You have been waiting a long time and so has he…He does not need a perfect family, he just needs A Family that loves him. In your heart, can you honestly tell him No? All that you need is a current homestudy and a desire to be his family. Contact Spence Chapin:

If you feel that your family could be the family for Sefko please complete our ASAP pre-application form and forward us your current, up to date, home study.  If we have a current, up to date, home study on file for you, please email us regarding your interest in this amazing boy.  We can be reached by email at ASAP@spence-chapin.org, fax at (888) 742-6126, or mail can be sent to ASAP at Spence-Chapin, 410 East 92nd Street, New York, N.Y. 10128.

There are NO fees for his adoption: read his full information here on this blog post…

How long must he wait? If he is not your child, or you are not yet homestudy ready; please share this post… New York is not that far away…

Stefko in NY with Down Syndrome

 This little boy is so handsome, This is NOT a foster care placement.

He can be placed in ANY state and His placement fees are $0 ; but the family would be responsible for post-placement and finalization of his adoption… First of all HERE HE IS 🙂

Stefko

Now doesn’t he make you smile!! He is very kind to other children and could be placed in a home with younger siblings.

He is listed with Spence Chapin  and with the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network…but they need families to make a choice!!

Here is the link for him at Spence Chapin:

http://www.spence-chapin.org/adoption-programs/b1k_waiting_children.php?id=92

Here is the description listed for Stefko:

We are looking for an adoptive family for Stefko, an adorable boy who just turned 9 in November. Stefko was born in Bulgaria and moved to New York about 2 years ago.  He is currently being cared for by his mother, who cares for him deeply but unfortunately is unable to continue parenting him due to his social needs and the lack of support and resources in her community.  Stefko is a very sweet and lovable boy, which a playful and smiling nature.  He is very curious and will explore everything in his surrounding environment. He will need a strong and resourceful family to help him deal with the challenges he will face in his daily life.

59747_611759795507889_181815018_n[1]

Stefko has a diagnosis of Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), with hypothyroidism, for which he takes synthroid daily, but other than that is currently overall healthy.  He wears glasses for his poor vision and foot orthotics for ankle stability. For the most part, Stefko is nonverbal. He is able to say some basic words and also knows some basic sign language, but usually needs to be prompted to use it.  He has recently begun to use a speech device at school and now appears to understand the concept of yes and no.  Stefko has difficulty retaining new information and sometimes appears to have little patience due to his lack of understanding and communication skills, causing him to occasionally tantrum to express himself or have his needs met.  He currently requires ongoing supervision.

th0D4JSUW6

Stefko loves horseplay, playing in water or with bubbles, and playing on the playground, especially on the monkey bars.  He likes to go for walks around the neighborhood and loves dogs.  He likes to dance, doing arts and crafts, and really enjoys playing with toys and books that make sounds and/or light up.  He is intrigued by people doing any type of woodworking, such as using a hammer, tape measure, etc., and is always ready to help with these activities.  Stefko currently loves pointing at specific things and having you tell him what they are.

Stefko

Stefko is in an 8:1:2 class at school which means 8 students, 1 teacher and 2 paraprofessionals. He receives occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy within his school.  He also goes to art therapy outside of school 2 times a month. Stefko recently started writing his name after much practice at school and has also knows all the colors and can sign them. According to his teachers, Stefko can follow directions, comply with rules and understands a lot, but can sometimes be difficult in terms of behavior. For instance, if they are putting something up on the Smartboard and it is not what he likes, or if it takes longer than expected for a program to open, he may tantrum.  He is currently being taught waiting and taking turn games and activities, which appear to be helping him learn.  Stefko loves technology, especially IPads, and loves to watch interactive songs, dances, etc., so much so that he sometimes has difficult separating himself from those activities when it is time to finish.

thGWWL7IQD

His mother is making an adoption plan because although she loves him dearly she is not able to meet his current and anticipated needs.  She is seeking an adoptive family interested in having an open adoption, which would include exchanging letters with updates and pictures, and the possibility of a yearly visit.  Families from any state in the U.S. will be considered.

thLGM5L6CW

Prospective adoptive families must research Down syndrome, consult with their pediatrician regarding what is currently known about this diagnosis, and reach out to their community to see what resources are currently available, such as early interventions, specialized schools and other therapies.  Although Stefko is currently medically stable, he will face varied and unpredictable challenges in the future and therefore families must be prepared and have the support systems and resources needed for him.  It would be of critical value for the adoptive family to have experience adopting older children and parenting children with disabilities.

Please note that the information included here is all that is available to be shared with families at this time.  More information will be made available to the prospective families who are selected by Stefko’s mother.

If you feel that your family could be the family for Sefko please complete our ASAP pre-application form and forward us your current, up to date, home study.  If we have a current, up to date, home study on file for you, please email us regarding your interest in this amazing boy.  We can be reached by email at ASAP@spence-chapin.org, fax at (888) 742-6126, or mail can be sent to ASAP at Spence-Chapin, 410 East 92nd Street, New York, N.Y. 10128.

If Stefko is not a child that suits your family…please share so he can find his forever home…He needs that special family and I know it exists…we just have to find it!!

Home needed for a Little boy with shaken baby syndrome

I recently have been looking at situations on www.adoptuskids.org . So many situations are listed of children that have been abused in this most devastating way. I would hope someone would step forward and be a loving, safe and forever family for this little one.

thIQO943FX

This situation is shared with the permission of creating Christian families.

They have a mom they did an adoption for years ago and she is asking for help with finding a family to adopt her severely special needs son. The little guy was born in 2010. He was healthy and beautiful. Later he experienced shaken baby syndrome from a baby sitter who is now jailed for the crime. Sadly though, the brain damage is severe. He cannot walk, talk etc and is on a feeding tube.

After corresponding with Deb, she also gave me this following information:

Our fee for counseling with the mother would be $1,000. The family would process this placement as a private adoption and pay attorney themselves.

He is not on any breathing support and he also recognizes his care takers

If you are interested, please send your profile and homestudy to:

I hope soon to be able to show a picture of fireworks!!
