Guess who we saw...
Wow... day three already! What an incredible day it has been.
We notice this every time we come. The kids in Taiwan are so incredibly loved. The staff at Cathwell want so badly for these children to find their families. They know that in some cases that will be hard.... really, really hard. But it doesn't stop them from trying. It doesn't stop them from pleading for us to help them help these kids.
Eric is a little 3 year old boy with a sweet smile. Just reading his file and looking at his pictures makes me think he is determined to work for what he wants!
Hi, my name is Alex and i'm learning the ropes of International Adoption from Colombia. I am a Senior at Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!) getting my undergrad degree in Social Work with a minor in Child Development. I fell in love with the idea of working in foster care and adoptions when my brother and sister-in-law decided to foster three children not too long ago. So far I have been able to see some exciting things here at Gladney and I am thrilled I get to share my experiences with you.
The Taiwan team should be in the air now or very soon! They are traveling today and will spend October 3-6 in our partnership orphanages in Taiwan. Since both of the orphanages are near Taipei, they will stay in Taipei the whole time they are there.
Are you ready?! The plans are made. The tickets are purchased and we are all ready to roll! (Well, except for packing, but we still have next week.)
My name is Mikayla Ollie and I have been an intern at Gladney for 3 weeks. I am interning from the University of North Texas while in my last semester of my degree for Human Development and Family Sciences. Before joining Gladney, my idea of my future career was a bit broad. I just wanted to help people. I wasn't sure how; I wasn't sure where; I wasn't sure of much. I spent most of my college career working HR for a cut-throat, dog-eat-dog, 'high-end' retail company. Although I enjoyed my HR job, I really didn't want to continue with that company. As I looked for internships in the HR field, nothing really fed my hunger to give back to the community. Then a miracle happened....
