Kent Says 'Hi!' {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 2/20/20 10:15 AM

We met Kent for the first time on his 6th birthday last fall! Since this was his first time meeting us, he was pretty shy. We could tell that he has a close relationship with his foster mother as he looked to her for reassurance and followed her directions. In fact, his foster mother described him as “a little prince”! She said that he is sweet, cuddly, active, and likes attention.

Bill Porter Reflects on His Time in Taiwan

Posted by Bill Porter, M.Ed. on 12/17/19 2:07 PM
Regarding Asian culture, I am what my boys call a “Newbie”.  Growing up in Central America, I was heavily exposed to the Spanish/Latin culture, but not Asian.  So when I had a chance to travel to Taiwan to assist with Gladney’s Superkids program, I was a bit hesitant.  However, I decided to make the best of it and immerse myself both into the culture and the Gladney Super Kids program.  Gladney’s Superkids is a group of mental health and medical professionals who visit orphanages in Taiwan in an effort to help learn more about children who could potentially be matched for international adoption.  What a wonderful opportunity, to learn and enjoy a new culture, while also serving children who are in need of a loving and caring family.

Kade {Taiwan}

Posted by Superkids Team on 11/20/19 1:59 PM

Last week while in Taiwan we met Kade for the first time. We had recently received his file and were excited to meet him to learn more about him. In his file, it states that he may be on the autism spectrum. However, our team unanimously agreed that we aren’t sure that is an accurate diagnosis – let me tell you why. Kade is a bright, personable, and fun almost 5 year little guy. He participated in our activities well, answered our questions, and generally acted like a typical energetic little boy.

Melody {Taiwan}

I could tell by her pictures that she was super cute and had a big personality, but I'm not sure I was prepared for just how sweet little Melody actually is in person! I love meeting children that I've read about and seeing their little personalities out-shine anything that could be written about them.

We just finished our first day at ChungYi. So many words swirl through my mind that could aptly describe this day, so many words, and yet I’m struggling to put any of them down so you can read them.

Gladney's Superkids in Taiwan: Cathwel Day 2

Posted by Superkids Team on 11/5/19 8:15 PM

Today was another full day of seeing kids at Cathwel! There were some kids we had the pleasure of seeing again for updates, and several kids we were able to meet for the first time. One thing in common was the passion the caregivers and social workers had for each of these children! It is always so heartwarming to see the love for these children and the common thread of everyone wanting permanency and the best opportunities for each of these children!
