There is no shortage of fun when Lien is around! Three year old Lien shares joy with all he comes into contact with! When he is happy, he moves his hips. When you touch his face, he laughs happily. His laugh can be heard on video in a game of chase and is simply contagious! Lien is lively, gentle and always smiles when he sees people.
Kash will be turning 3 years old in April and we were lucky enough to spend some time with him during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. He is an active little guy who wasn’t wary of us strangers! He was curious and enjoyed playing with our different toys. He can grasp objects and scribble on a paper with a crayon. He is saying a few words – mama, sister, uh-oh.
Henry is 1 ½ years old. At the age of 11 months, Henry enjoyed playing on the cushion, turning around, making a circle. He was reaching for toys and is most happy when a caretaker is playing with him. He likes to play with his hands and play with toys that make noise. He is described as a lovely boy who likes playing in the water during bath time!
Meet 13 year old Amanda and her 11 year old brother, Anders! We met these sweet siblings for the first time during our Superkids trip to Taiwan in November. It was wonderful getting know them, as they were both very personable.
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.
Are you ready for some cuteness?! Check out Lola, so fancy in her red dress with her hair in a little ponytail! I’m thinking bows would be a hit!
Her file describes her as active, cheerful, smart and clever. She is loved by teachers and caretakers.
We met sweet, shy Adalyn last spring shortly before she turned 7 years old, and I’ve thought about her often. We could tell she was nervous to meet with us, which is understandable, but slowly over the morning we saw more of her personality shine through. Her caregivers described her as gentle, easy-going, but that she can also have a bit of stubborn streak.
Tom turned three in November! He loves music, reading books, throwing balls and giving high fives! He knows how to clean up the playroom when he is finished playing. Tom is making great strides in his skills- including fine motor and gross motor and communication skills.
We met Kip for the first time in November 2019, and what a cutie! He was a little shy with us and wasn’t too into trying all of our tasks. But, hey, we’re weird looking and weird sounding strangers! He did warm up to us after some time and we got to see a playful side to him. He loves to play house, especially with kitchen toys. Maybe he’ll be a chef one day!
Sometimes I wonder what it is like to read our posts as we struggle to relay the unique preciousness of each child. I feel like we use the same words, the same descriptions. Over and over we tell you how blown away we were with a child, how special that child is. But here is the thing, it is true. Each and every time it's true. and if you could just meet the child you would see and understand that. Instead we are tasked with telling you in a few words how special a child is.
