Girl, Born July 1996
ABIhkhc–Down Syndrome, 15 years old, NEEDS HOME STUDY AND USICS I800A FILED BY JUNE 2012
I know in my heart that if anyone can help this beautiful 15 year old girl with Down syndrome find a family, it is the advocates at Reece’s Rainbow!   If she is not adopted by July of 2012, she will no longer be eligible for adoption AT ALL.   We need an experienced family with a completed or near complete home study, who has adopted older children with special needs internationally before. 
Present Carer:  Harmony is receiving secondary education at a middle school and has been residing at the school’s boarding section since 2002. 
Present Development:  Although Hamony is a girl with Down Syndrome and a number of medical problems, her medical issues had been subsided after receiving treatments and operations.  Due to left severe hearing loss, right profound hearing loss, moderate hyperopia, astigmatism and nystagmus, Harmony has to wear hearing aids and spectacles in school.  However, she does not put them on in the dorm and yet can do very well.  She understands her worker’s instructions well and has no communication problems with her housemates.  Harmony’s behavior and emotions are stable.  She has acquired self care skills and managed to bathe independently, wash her hair, hang up and fold her clothes neatly.  She also knows how to seek help from the social worker when her toys are seized or is pinched by other housemates.  Her appetite is good.  She eats well and does not spend a lot of time in eating.
Harmony loves learning and is attentive in class.  She completes her homework voluntarily.  She understands and recognizes different parts of the body.  She also recognizes the name tag of her classmates and calls out their names.  At present, she learns Chinese language by using reading cards and can pronounce two syllables.  She is described as patient, helpful and playful.  She loves music and plays the hand bell well.  She usually imitates the behaviors of others, manages to string a bead and slides with a pair of roller blades.  She can stay focused when playing with puzzles, play-dough and drawing with a pen.  She also enjoys playing with younger children, such as chasing and hitting each other and dancing together.  Being a helper of the social worker, she stops a classmate from hitting the other and prevents a social worker from falling down.  She used to be very exciting towards peoples and was stubborn.  When her want was declined, she threw a temper.  Fortunately, she can control her emotions and follow instructions after being explained.  When she has home leave at a social worker’s home during weekends, she follows the rules well and gets along well with the family members of the social worker.
