Stone Lion

Posted by Superkids Team on 4/18/16 8:05 AM
We are soooo happy to be back with the children from Stone Lion.  They don’t get as many visitors as some of the other orphanages we travel to, so they were pretty excited to see us too. All the older kids remembered us from our trip in September.

A New Year's Baby: Our Adoption Story

Posted by Gladney Center for Adoption on 4/15/16 2:45 PM

Little did I know December 23rd 2015 (the day before my birthday) would be life changing. I was excited to be starting winter vacation (my husband and I are both teachers). We planned on relaxing, spending time with friends and family and maybe an adventure. An adventure is what we were headed for. On my drive home I received a call from the 817 number that I always dropped everything to answer. I pulled over to answer the phone and we receive the news that we had waited to hear for so long. An expectant mom had chosen us to raise her son. Tears of overpowering joy streamed down my face. A million things ran through my mind. We need to book a flight, get a hotel room, pack. I called my husband barely able to speak and told him that he would be a dad and I would be a mom. The words I waited to say for years. My husband and I announced the news the next day to our families.

Changsha Advocacy Camp

Posted by Superkids Team on 4/14/16 7:30 PM
Today the Advocacy Camp Team visited the children of Changsha #1 Social Welfare Institute.  We received a tour of the facility where we were able to see the therapy floor and learn about the rehabilitation program they have in place.  It was so interesting and we loved getting to see first hand what they are doing here to help children reach their maximum potential.  It was clear how dedicated the leadership is to these children, not just to meet their basic needs, but to help improve their medical conditions so that they can be successful in life.

Changsha, Day 1: It Never Gets Old.

Posted by Superkids Team on 4/14/16 5:10 PM
It just never gets old.  These sweet faces.  These giggles.  Babies that we saw last trip that are now toddling around.  Toddlers that are now longer and leaner… and talking like crazy.   Their confidence and personalities blooming more and more each trip. Elementary aged kids that amaze us with their silliness and growing math skills.
