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.

MATCHED!!

 

On our last trip to Taiwan we met a darling little girl who had us all smiling and giggling with her the whole time she was in the room. We named her Annabelle and we asked Michelle, one of our long-standing Superkids volunteers (and a Gladney mom) to write a little about her experience meeting Annabelle.

A New Look

Posted by Superkids Team on 12/14/18 6:55 AM

See our new look? We are pretty excited about it! But don't worry, we are still Gladney's Superkids and that part won't change. What will change is that we will be reaching more people and a broader audience. Which means the sweet children we advocate for will have even more people seeing them, sharing their posts, and becoming advocates for them. We call that winning!

Posted by Superkids Team on 11/28/18 12:02 AM

Kasper is an 8 year old little boy with one request: He wants a family. What do you say to an 8 year old boy when he asks you to find him a family? You can't say that you will. You stand there, your mind spinning, knowing full well the challenges of finding him one. And you can only promise one thing: you will try.

This year, my thoughts of fatherhood are intertwined with the concept of sonship. What does it mean to be a son (or daughter)? Being a father is about the relationship. The same is true for being a son. Just as my father’s relationship with me defines him as a father, my relationship with him is what makes me his son.
