Superkids Team

Picture of
Superkids is a humanitarian aid initiative within the Asia Waiting Child Program of the Gladney Center for Adoption. Our goal: to improve the lives of children in Chinese orphanages via adoption advocacy, medical and rehabilitation services. Starting as a tiny team providing services to special needs children in a single facility in Shanghai in 2007, we've grown to a broad coalition of physicians, early childhood development specialists, teachers and volunteers who've aided 500 children in orphanages across China.

Aurora {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 1/21/20 8:58 AM

We met 7 year old Aurora for the first time during our Superkids visit in November. Aurora was a little shy at first, but once she warmed up to us she had a lot of fun playing and interacting with everyone. She was curious about our toys and the tasks we asked her to do. She enjoyed playing the matching game with 5 card sets.

Is there anything cuter than a little 3 year old boy in a train shirt with yellow sleeves? I think not!

Juniper {China}

The first time I went to China with Superkids, back in 2013, I met a little girl. She was 6 years old at the time. She had strabismus and was missing the toes on one foot. The result of this, coupled with her too-big shoes, was many falls. But she slipped and fell and jumped right up again and kept going. She laughed with delighted abandon at the bubbles one of our team members blew.

Be An Adoption Advocate for Ash (Taiwan)

Posted by Superkids Team on 12/5/19 7:30 AM

Ash is a sweet, clever 10 year old that we had the pleasure of meeting last month. It truly was a pleasure spending time with him – he did every task we threw his way, and he did them well! He completed all of our hard puzzles and was so gracious with everyone – us, the social workers, the other kids in the room. Ash is in the 5th grade where he gets good grades and told us he has lots of friends. He is learning some English in school and we could tell he was very proud to answer our questions in English when he could.

Kade {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 11/20/19 1:59 PM

Last week while in Taiwan we met Kade for the first time. We had recently received his file and were excited to meet him to learn more about him. In his file, it states that he may be on the autism spectrum. However, our team unanimously agreed that we aren’t sure that is an accurate diagnosis – let me tell you why. Kade is a bright, personable, and fun almost 5 year little guy. He participated in our activities well, answered our questions, and generally acted like a typical energetic little boy.
