I am the first of our team to arrive in Taiwan. Tired and feeling a bit bedraggled I landed around 5:30 AM. By the time I got to our Airbnb apartment it was close to 7. We all love staying in the apartment, but I quickly realized I was going to need to go out pretty quickly to get some water. So after a shower, some fresh clothes, and a call home I headed out!
So... our next trip to Taiwan is planned. The tickets are booked. Now it is time to ask you again for your generous donations!
We love us some precious kiddos who are rocking an extra 21st chromosome! How could we not fall in love with these little faces?
I am going to do something that I do not think I've ever done before in this post. We hear at Superkids talk about a lot of different people who advocate to find homes for children. We call ourselves child advocates. Sometimes we provide a platform for an older child to do what we refer to as self advocacy. Today we are providing a platform for a foster mom to advocate for her foster son.
One of the things that happens as a child advocate is that you fall in love with certain children. Remy is one of those. I met him several times back when superkids was visiting China frequently. He is cute and funny and quickly picks up on things even when you don't speak the same language. Act it out once or twice and Remy has got it!
We have new files of children from Taiwan. And I sort of kind of fell in love as soon as open Autumn's file. I'm going to have to get a little creative with the photos to be able to share them here, but that is why you need to join our private Facebook group where we can post pictures we cannot post publicly. We are planning to be able to meet Autumn when we go to Taiwan in April, but I didn't want to wait that long to introduce her here. This little one is cute, cute, cute!
Divya will age out in December. We need a family to step forward right away for this lovely girl! She has no known health needs. She is described as being very smart even though she has not had a lot of education.
We give the children we advocate for advocacy names for privacy purposes. While the names are significant to the children, they do hold some level of meaning to us since thats how we refer to the children we advocate for. This morning I needed a name for a little girl and saw that the meaning of her Chinese name is light. So I did a quick Google search and found a list of names meaning light. I ended up choosing Ciana for her. I have never heard it before, but I just loved it! I think it fits her.
