Cecilia

Are you ready to meet a precious 1 year old baby girl who has Down syndrome!? We don't have good pictures, but I want to go ahead and introduce her anyway. She is soooooo sweet!



Cecilia has a $4,000 grant through Gladney. We are seeking an update and better photos for her and should get those soon. For now we know that she is 18 months old and she also has CHD (ASD).

She is a quiet, happy baby who only cries when she is hungry. She holds toys to play with them and babbles while she is playing.

We will post more about her as soon as we get updated information. Please contact us at superkids@gladney.org to learn more about adopting Cecilia!

Taiwan Here We Come!

Our fall trip to Taiwan is just around the corner! We have a group of experienced Superkids volunteers and we are really getting excited as the time for our trip gets closer.



We know how generous you all are anyhow much you all like to help us gather the supplies we need to make our time spent with the children as fun and productive as possible. So we have put together an Amazon wish list of things we would like to be able to take. You can see it here. The shipping address is already in and ready to go, so please order away!



We are taking little masks for the kids to decorate. This serves the purpose of giving them something fun to do and helps us to get pictures we can use for advocacy while still honoring the privacy laws of Taiwan.

Thank you for generosity and your help in making our trips a success!

Sanford

Sanford is a sweet baby boy who needs a family!



He is 20 months old and has Down syndrome. He lives in a foster home and seems very attached to his foster mom. We met him in October of 2016, he was only 10 months old at the time, so it was fun to read through the file and see how he has changed! 



He feeds himself and sits independently. He follows simple instructions and is crawling. He claps his hands when he sees his friends coming and likes to listen to stories. He waves good-bye. He vocalizes and says a few simple words. 



This sweet little guy needs a family! He has a $4,000 grant through Gladney. Please contact us at superkids@gladney.org for more information.

Darnell {Taiwan}

Darnell is a healthy 9 year old boy waiting for his forever family. He is described as being polite with a personable nature, and as someone who always takes care of others including small animals. His foster mother also states that he is sentimental and enjoys collecting things that bring him happiness. Doesn’t he sound like such a sweetie?!

Darnell works hard at school and always gets good remarks from his teachers. He sometimes needs a little extra assistance with certain subjects, including math. He gets along well with his peers and enjoys participating in group activities.  

As a reminder, we can’t share photos publicly of a child’s full face, but we do have photos of Darnell that can be shared privately! There is a photo of him in a football uniform, dressed up as a pilot, and posing with a cow – trust me when I say he has got some amazing photos! Join out Taiwan Advocacy Facebook group to see pictures!

Could Darnell be your son? Please contact Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org to review Darnell’s full profile.

Meet Lamont!

Lamont is a precious little baby boy (ignore the pink ruffles!) who just turned 1 last week!



He is doing great with developmental stuff! He crawls and pulls to a stand. He can walk with assistance. He recognizes his name and turns when his name is called. He likes to play with toys and will play happily by himself for quite a while.



We will be happy to talk about his need with interested families.



He is described as an active, happy little boy. This sweet little guy needs a family! Please contact us at superkids@gladney.org for more information.
