Dory {Taiwan}

We recently received 7 year old Dory’s file from one of our partner agencies in Taiwan and boy is she a cutie! We have several (adorable) photos and a couple of videos – I wish we could share them publicly!



Dory is described by her foster mother as being considerate, sympathetic, and active. She can be shy and timid around new people at first. She is in the first grade and likes playing with her friends at school. She does not like to be the center of attention though!



She loves to listen and dance to music. She enjoys drawing and her profile includes a couple of pictures she shared with the social worker. She also loves going on outings and talking about her day at school during dinner.

Dory is healthy but her most recent medical report showed high blood pressure and low levels of MCV which could indicate anemia. She will have follow-up tests completed to monitor these two issues.



We hope to meet Dory during our next Superkids trip! Could Dory be your daughter? To review Dory’s full profile, including her photos and videos, please contact our Taiwan program caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org.

A little fun for you today! Take a peek at Gladney's waiting children! All of these are children we have met and whose paperwork is completed or at a point that we know it will be completed soon. Please ask us for more information about a specific child by sending an email to superkids@gladney.org and making sure to mention the child's advocacy name. As is stated in the video, families already working with Gladney always have priority in matching.

Max {Taiwan}

Max turned 5 years old in December. We met this sweet boy during our trip last May and are hoping to see him again during our next trip. Max is a gentle boy with a very cute smile that lights up his whole face. He was pretty shy when we met him but warmed up the longer he was with us. 



He came to meet us with his foster mother. She told us that he loves playing and helping to take care of younger children. We witnessed this ourselves when some younger children came into the room – he wanted to play with them and was even using our phones to take pictures of them!



Max loves music! His foster mother told us he loves to dance whenever he hears music. He also likes to imitate what others are doing, especially other children.



Max has epilepsy, renal and ureter dysplasia, and delays. He attends school and also attends early intervention. Could Max be your son? We have lots of information on this cutie! Please contact Mary Chapman at mary.chapman@gladney.org.

All You Need Is Love {Leonard}

Leonard is a handsome 5 year old boy who likes to play with cars and trucks. He like to build things with blocks. He likes the things you would expect a 5 year old to like.



Leonard has cerebral palsy and is a hepatitis B carrier. His file also lists developmental delays. That sounds like quite a few needs for one little 5 year old boy, but he has another need that overshadows all of those needs. He needs love, he needs a family.



When it comes right down to it, his needs are the same as yours and mine. He needs love.



Leonard walks using a walker and crawls. He is in therapy and wears braces on his legs. He writes and draws and colors. He even drew a cute little stick person with a huge smile!



He is a quiet, observant little boy. He watches what is happening around him and it is fun to watch his expression change as he quietly observes the room.

Could Leonard be your son? Please contact us at superkids@gladney.org for more information.
