Hank

Hank is a handsome 8 year old boy who enjoys playing games with his friends.



He is described as a quiet boy who is very polite. He greets the caregiver each day when she arrives at the orphanage and tells her good-bye when she leaves in the evening.



Hank likes Legos and is good at building things with them. He also enjoys playing with balls. He is in first grade and is doing very well. He counts to 100 and does addition and subtraction. He writes his name and likes to draw. He takes a special class in Peking Opera and played a monkey in the Children's Day celebrations.



Hank has treated syphilis and seems to be doing very well in his physical and mental development.

Hank wants a family of his own. Could that be you? Please contact April Uduhiri at april.uduhiri@gladney.org for more information.

Micah {Taiwan}

Lights, camera, action… Micah is full of life! From the moment he came into the room he stole the show. With his caregivers in tow he was off to the races… following directions, singing songs - with hand motions included - and even bowing to say hello. 



It is no surprise why Micah is such a lovable little guy. He is happy and willing to engage anyone that he comes in contact with. He was sure to bow hello to me and look through the animal match cards. Then off to the play house to knock and say hello. In and out the door and up and down the slide he went… 


Full of energy for all the fun life brings… Micah is in search of his forever family. Micah has Down syndrome, but he sure is one special little boy, an extra chromosome makes him just who he is! He is in search of his forever family. A family that will love him unconditionally just the way he is. 



Could that be you? For more information on Micah – including an adorable video of him imitating animal sounds! – please be in touch with Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org

Herman

Herman is a cute little almost 3 year old boy. He likes to play with blocks and balls and is described by his caregiver as a quiet little boy.



Herman sits by himself and walks with support, he follows commands and understands what is said to him. He is speaking only single words such as mama right now.

Herman has minor CHD and peripheral facial neuroparalysis. He also has post-op cryptorchid.




His file states that he likes to be cuddled by adults and will stand at the edge of his playpen and raise his arms, hoping to be picked up and cuddled. Just look at that little face! I would love to cuddle him!

Herman needs a family to give him all the cuddles he could ever wish for! Could he be your son? Please contact April Uduhiri at april.uduhiri@gladney.org for more information.

Mason {Taiwan}

Silly boy… Mason came across so shy and quiet at first. Before long he was chatting away to his caregiver about his Lego adventure. My job was to turn the pages as he followed the directions and occasionally direct his eye to the piece he was hunting. Before long the whole kit was together and he was a happy little guy.



With the Lego kit together it was time to try out the lollipop… of course he tried the blue one. Mason was excited to try that flavor since it was new to him. It was a Kodak moment when his tongue became blue. He was eager to show it off to the camera, giggling all the while. Even with the blue tongue he claims his favorite color is red. He also told our Superkids team that he wants to be a ninja when he grows up so that he can protect the earth!



Blue tongue and all, Mason is one special kid. He has some delays, but he does not let that slow him down! He is looking for his forever family. He is in search of a mommy and daddy that will share in the silly moments and love him unconditionally. Could that be you? 



For more information on Mason, please contact Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman at mary.chapman@gladney.org.
