Some Children Waiting for Foster Families

There are many children waiting to be part of a foster family. Some of these children are in their school-going years, and some have special educational, emotional or medical needs. Their greatest need is a nurturing and safe home environment that will provide the love and care that they need. By providing a loving home, you can help these children to thrive and reach their fullest potential, as well as create a memorable childhood. 

Below are some of these children who are currently on our waitlist. If you can provide a home for them, please step forward to join us as foster parents. Make a difference in their lives today.

 Updated as of 28 June 2018.

 

Jonathan 

Farina and Faris

8 years old, Malay, Female

2 years old, Malay, Male

Farina and Faris are siblings who do not have major behavioural issues. Having been subjected to physical violence by her step-father, Farina has trouble sleeping at night and often experiences nightmares. She has difficulties concentrating in class and some punctuality issues. However, a loving and nurturing environment will definitely help her to improve. Faris is a well-liked boy who gets along well with others. He plays well with his peers and is able to receive and understand instructions in English. A nurturing environment will help Faris develop his full potential. 

 

Omar 

Lina and Lionel

7 years old, Chinese, Female

6 years old, Chinese, Male

Lina and Lionel are siblings of mixed Chinese-Malay parentage. Lina is a polite and respectful girl who is very sociable. She has a history of asthma but knows to use her inhaler whenever necessary. Lionel is an active and pleasant boy with no known medical or behavioural issues. They will benefit from a loving home to nurture them as they grow.  

 

 

Ryan 


Rifqi and Raffie

6 years old, Malay, Male

4 years old, Malay Male 

Rifqi and Raffie are siblings with no medical issues. Rifqi is a cheerful and healthy boy with no behavioural concerns. Like any other child of that age, Rifqi may be mischievous at times and so may require reminders through strict instructions and structure. Though Raffie tends to be mischievous and may at times mimic behaviours of others such as talking back and throwing toys, he is able to listen to simple instructions and follow through routines and structures. Due to the lack of care in their natural home environment, the boys used to fall sick easily and often went  to school in dirty clothes. They will benefit from a home where they are given love and attention.  

 

Irfan 

Jovin, Rafael, Raymond & Kelvin

8 years old, Chinese, Male

5 years old, Chinese, Male

4 years old, Chinese, Male

1 year old, Chinese, Male

Jovin, Rafael and Raymond and Kelvin are four siblings who are in need of a loving home. Despite being age-appropriate for primary school, Jovin is currently not attending school. Rafael dislikes being separated from the eldest brother. He is also rather stubborn and tends to make a fuss when things do not go his way. It would be optimal to keep the brothers together, as far as possible so that they can continue to develop their bonds with each other. Kelvin is a loveable infant with no reported behaviour challenges nor medical needs. He is able to understand simple instructions in English and Mandarin. 

 Raymond

 

Naely

1 month old, Indian, Female

Naely is a new-born with no known medical conditions. Though she was born prematurely at gestational age of 34 weeks, Naely has no special needs and can be cared for like any other new-borns. A victim of neglect at such a tender age, a loving foster family would make a great difference in these important first months.

Khabir

 

 Falim

2 months old, Malay, Male

Falim is a healthy infant with no known medical conditions. He was born full-term and would benefit from a loving environment to grow up in.  

 

 

Damien

8 years old, Chinese, Male

Despite having been subjected to harsh physical punishment by his natural mother, Damien is a friendly and active boy who shares a warm relationship with the professionals in his life. He is chatty and able to voice his opinions well. He gets along very well with his peers and does not present any behavioural issues. However, due to his past experiences, Damien is not inclined to share his feelings and emotions and will choose to avoid such questions when he is not comfortable to reveal more. Damien will definitely benefit from a caring and nurturing environment to where he is able open up and heal from his past.  


Nelson

6 years old, Chinese, Male

Nelson has short gut syndrome and is required to see a dietician once in 3 months. He also has GDD and requires speech therapy.  Nelson is currently awaiting admission into a special school. A loving and caring home can aid Nelson to thrive and meet his developmental needs.

 

 


 

Jordan

10 years old, Chinese, Male

Jordan is a cheerful and friendly boy with a pleasant disposition. He has been diagnosed with ADHD, and his history of neglect has caused him to exhibit certain behaviours such as stealing money to buy food. A patient and loving home environment would aid Jordan in discerning right from wrong and give him the opportunity to excel.
