We are starting a new blog series featuring questions that we are asking families in our Gladney China families Facebook group. (Hang on Taiwan families! We have something fun planned for your kiddos this summer too!)
Oriana is almost 4 years old. We just got a sweet update that included a video. She sounds like a darling little girl who doing well.
Over in our private Taiwan Facebook group (be sure to join for pictures and videos we can't share publicly!) we asked for help to give this little guy an advocacy name. Alec was the clear favorite of the 3 names we asked you to choose from, so today we are introducing Alec!
Adam is a handsome 7 year old boy whose favorite subject is PE, especially running. He likes to do puzzles and is described as creative and obedient. This sweet little guy is very considerate of his foster mom and very attached to her.
Oscar is a 2 year old baby boy who is described as happy and easy-going. His file states that when he first arrived he was quiet and shy, but with time he settled in and is now outgoing and laughs easily. He likes to listen to music and raise his arms and sway "just like dancing."
Avril came into the room giggling when we met her last month. I don't know what she thought was funny, but she was covering her little mouth with her hand and giggling. It was absolutely adorable.
We have met Lyle several times. The last time was in October of 2016. We recently decided to check up on some of "our" kids that we have met to see if they are on still waiting for families. Lyle is one of the children who is still waiting.
Amelia is one of the children we met for the first time when we were in Taiwan recently. And what a sweet girl! She is 9 years old and I had such a great time helping her make a headband and put on makeup! She was super sweet and excited about it then when she went into the other room and talked to Mary she said one of her favorite things is putting on makeup. How sweet is that?!
We have posted about these sweet baby boys before, but their situation has changed and we need to find families for them quickly. Both of these adorable boys have spent most of their little lives either being cared for in the Butterfly Home or in foster homes. They are now being moved from their foster homes to the orphanage in charge of their care due to new regulations in China. You can read about Jayden here and Orin here.
