Spending Time With Kash {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 2/25/20 12:15 PM

Kash will be turning 3 years old in April and we were lucky enough to spend some time with him during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. He is an active little guy who wasn’t wary of us strangers! He was curious and enjoyed playing with our different toys. He can grasp objects and scribble on a paper with a crayon. He is saying a few words – mama, sister, uh-oh.

Henry is 1 ½ years old.  At the age of 11 months, Henry enjoyed playing on the cushion, turning around, making a circle.  He was reaching for toys and is most happy when a caretaker is playing with him.  He  likes to play with his hands and play with toys that make noise.  He is described as a lovely boy who likes playing in the water during bath time!

Kent Says 'Hi!' {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 2/20/20 10:15 AM

We met Kent for the first time on his 6th birthday last fall! Since this was his first time meeting us, he was pretty shy. We could tell that he has a close relationship with his foster mother as he looked to her for reassurance and followed her directions. In fact, his foster mother described him as “a little prince”! She said that he is sweet, cuddly, active, and likes attention.

Meet Adalyn {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 2/18/20 1:15 PM

We met sweet, shy Adalyn last spring shortly before she turned 7 years old, and I’ve thought about her often. We could tell she was nervous to meet with us, which is understandable, but slowly over the morning we saw more of her personality shine through. Her caregivers described her as gentle, easy-going, but that she can also have a bit of stubborn streak.

Friendly Guidance on the Adoption Tax Credit

Posted by Jaye Helm, CPA on 2/15/20 2:06 PM

It’s that time of year again when we gather all our paper and forms together, file our taxes, and hope for the best. Will our refund be enough to take a vacation, or will we have to pay? Is it a W-2 or W-4? Why didn’t my company withhold enough? What is a CPA anyway? TurboTax or H&R Block?
