Jessica - Superkids Update!

Posted by Superkids Team on 11/28/23 1:30 PM

Oh my! What a little sweetheart! Jessica is a darling 18 month old baby girl we met while we were in Taiwan earlier this month. She is described as calm and quiet.

And if that isn’t adorable I don’t know what is.

As a result of a sudden change, I uncovered a policy issue that can only be described as bad.

Samuel is a little almost 6 year old boy who was our block-stacking champion! He built a tower 16 blocks high. Every puzzle or matching challenge we gave him he did quickly and meticulously. And when we asked if it was hard or easy for him he said, “Easy!” Every time.

What is sweeter than sisters? We met Nila {8} and Nikki {7} together then spent time with each separately when we were in Taiwan earlier this month. They are both sweet girls. Nikki, though younger is the leader of the two when they are together. Nila is more quiet and shy while Nikki is more talkative and active. The girls live in separate foster homes but do spend time together and get along well.
