We don’t have photos of siblings Kelly and Ken that can be shared publicly, but trust me when I say they are adorable! We can share photos and a video with anyone who we can confirm meets the requirements to adopt from Taiwan.
We have met 4 ½ year old Kaeleb several times with Superkids over the last couple of years. Kaeleb loves playing with toy cars! He prefers independent play, but likes cuddling with his caregivers. He can usually follow directions well and complete tasks when asked.
Meet 7 year old Arthur! He was a little shy and quiet at first when we spent time together in November, but quickly warmed up. He did amazingly well on all of our tasks - he even did some of the harder cognitive games we usually play with the kids closer to 10 years old! His foster mother described him as gentle and considerate. He will often help her with chores, even though it’s not his favorite activity.
SuperKids has taken numerous trips to China and Taiwan to visit and provide assessments to potential families wanting to learn more about a waiting child. It was nearly 4 years ago when we last saw Jack, but we have never forgotten him. 10 year old Jack has been a favorite among many of our professional volunteers and caseworkers at Gladney.... but yet he still waits.
We have Jack described as smart, vibrant and energetic. He likes to talk with people and when he is happy, he talks with his friends and is very excitable. He has a good relationship with his peers in the classroom and orphanage setting. He is liked by all.
Jackie’s file was initially prepared in August 2017. Jackie is an observant child. After adjustment in her environment, she was more active, completed tasks quickly and her work was the top in her class.
We were able to spend time with sweet Alanna again during our Superkids trip in November. Alanna will be turning 5 years old in a couple of months. Alanna is full of giggles and cuddles. She loves music and dancing. She has such a sweet, fun personality and seems to thrive in social situations.
Meet 5 year old Arnold! He is a fun-loving, social little guy with a sweet giggle we heard a lot while spending time with him in November. He was good at figuring out our toys which were new to him, and even helped to clean up without being asked!
Rex’s file was initially prepared when he was around 15 months old. At the time, he was sitting up for short periods of time and was learning to crawl. An update from November 2019, shows progress in his development as he is pulling up to hold onto a ride along toy and another showing him sitting and playing the piano.
We were able to spend time with 5 year old Avril again during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. We have met sweet Avril a couple of times now, and we always enjoy getting to spend time with her. She is active and fun, and has a good sense of humor! Avril is very verbal and fun to talk with. When we asked if she would count for us, she said “I can’t count now, I’ll get too distracted!” I think playing takes priority over counting any day!
Avril loves to play pretend and made sure to cook us up a big feast. At one point she was bored of our conversation, so she went and climbed into a baby bouncer seat and looked at us
How cute is Harry?! Two and a half year old Harry likes to smile and has a contagious laugh! Watch his video and you will be laughing too! Harry likes to play with cars and he can use his feet during play to hold and move objects.
