We have met Mason several times with the Superkids team over the last few years. Mason is a considerate, smart, articulate and athletic 11 year old boy. He is currently in the 5th grade and works hard at school – he even told me that he likes doing homework!
We don’t have photos of siblings Kelly and Ken that can be shared publicly, but trust me when I say they are adorable! We can share photos and a video with anyone who we can confirm meets the requirements to adopt from Taiwan.
We have met 4 ½ year old Kaeleb several times with Superkids over the last couple of years. Kaeleb loves playing with toy cars! He prefers independent play, but likes cuddling with his caregivers. He can usually follow directions well and complete tasks when asked.
Meet 7 year old Arthur! He was a little shy and quiet at first when we spent time together in November, but quickly warmed up. He did amazingly well on all of our tasks - he even did some of the harder cognitive games we usually play with the kids closer to 10 years old! His foster mother described him as gentle and considerate. He will often help her with chores, even though it’s not his favorite activity.
Meet 5 year old Arnold! He is a fun-loving, social little guy with a sweet giggle we heard a lot while spending time with him in November. He was good at figuring out our toys which were new to him, and even helped to clean up without being asked!
We were able to spend time with 5 year old Avril again during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. We have met sweet Avril a couple of times now, and we always enjoy getting to spend time with her. She is active and fun, and has a good sense of humor! Avril is very verbal and fun to talk with. When we asked if she would count for us, she said “I can’t count now, I’ll get too distracted!” I think playing takes priority over counting any day!
Avril loves to play pretend and made sure to cook us up a big feast. At one point she was bored of our conversation, so she went and climbed into a baby bouncer seat and looked at us
Adelle and Ada are sisters who are very close to each other. We have photos of the sisters, just not ones that can be shared publicly. To see photos, please request to join our private Taiwan Advocacy Group on Facebook.
Adelle is 10 years old and is the quieter of the 2. She is shy and doesn’t like to do new things without her sister to encourage her.
We have met Kobe a couple of times, the most recent of which was this past November. He is a sweet little 5 year old boy who carefully went to each person and shared his fruit snacks before he ate any himself.
Kobe has mild developmental delays and his file indicates that he may have ADHD. He loves super heroes, especially Superman and Ultraman. When asked what he wants to be when he grows up he replied, “Superman!”
Archer is a sweet, gentle boy who just turned 5 years old earlier this month. Gladney's Superkids team met him when we were in Taiwan in April 2019. He was born prematurely and has global delays, but he followed directions well for us and according to his caregivers he speaks in complete sentences. In a recent update received, it’s stated that he has shown improvement in his speech and is more motivated to express his needs through speech.
Kai is an adorable little guy who will be turning 7 years old in a couple of weeks! Kai is in the 1st grade and told us his favorite thing about school is PE and playing tag with his friends. Kai loves to play with Legos and he built a huge tower out of blocks with Bill during our visit in November!
Kai also likes to watch cartoons, especially Ultraman, and play outside. He told us his favorite food was vegetables, just not eggplant!
