We are excited to introduce siblings Jaqueline (age 8), Jayla (age 6), Janelle (age 5), and Janessa (age 3)!
The siblings do not have any diagnosed medical conditions. We have the full profiles for families to review who meet Taiwan's adoption qualifications.
Jaqueline was born in 2014 and is 8 years old. Jacqueline enjoys drawing, building with Legos, playing with transforming toys and outdoor activities especially rolling around on a Snakeboard! Jacqueline is shy around new people and takes a little time to feel comfortable. Once she is familiar with someone, she will act lively and engage with them. She is enrolled in first grade and attends an afterschool program. She is a good student, and eagerly helps her peers when she can.
Jayla was born in 2016 and is 6 years old. Jayla loves to watch princess cartoons, play with water-balloons, and role-play being a teacher! Jayla is reserved when in a unfamiliar environment and needs to take time to observe before feeling comfortable. Jayla is suspected to have ADHD. She attended play therapy and counseling sessions to help her learn emotional regulation when interacting with others. Her caregiver stated she feels that Jayla's emotional stability has improved since starting her therapies. Jayla is enrolled in elementary school as a kindergartener.
Janelle was born in 2017 and is 5 years old. Janelle enjoys playing in the rain, making crafts with clay, puzzles, and building with Legos! She has a stuffed shark that she finds comfort in and wants it to be close by. Those who know her describe Janelle as fiery and wants to express her own thoughts. Janelle is enrolled as a kindergartner at elementary school.
Janessa was born in 2019 and is 3 years old. Janessa's favorite activities include watching 'A Lovely Tiger' cartoon, dancing to the rhythm of music, and riding her scooter! She is described as having an outgoing and lively personality. Janessa enjoys exploring new surroundings and is not shy. Janessa has a close bond with her foster family and gets along well with her similar aged foster sisters. Their favorite activity is role playing they are teachers or doctors with one another.
The 3 older siblings reside in a Children's Home with three other girls of the same ages. They have a close bond with one another and enjoy role-playing and playing with Barbie dolls together. While Janessa does not live with her sisters, she has met them during meeting arranged by their foster agency. The girls also have 2 older siblings who reside in Taiwan.
Since the older girls have not had many opportunities to meet with their younger sister, they are needing the support and time to build a relationship together. Are you a family that can provide this to them? If you think you could be the right family for Jacqueline, Jayla, Janelle, and Janessa, please contact us at Superkids@gladney.org to review their profiles.
To protect a child's privacy, Taiwan has strict rules limiting public photos of children. To see more photos of the siblings, request to join Gladney's PRIVATE Taiwan Waiting Child Advocacy group on Facebook.
