Magnificent Miles {Under Consideration}

Although Typhoon Dujuan interfered with our plans to see many of the waiting children during our short Superkids trip to Taiwan last month, we were still able to briefly meet a few children. Miles is one of those precious children.



Miles is a sweet 15 month old little boy who is living in the children’s home. He was so happy and playful during our visit! He loved Erin’s long skirt and crawled around the room chasing after her to try and play with it!




We also saw what a wonderful relationship he had with one of his caregivers. The two of them sat on the floor together making different sounds back and forth to each other. He would imitate the sounds his caregiver was making and laugh at their silliness. It was incredibly adorable to watch!



Miles’ caregivers noted that he loves to play with toys that make sounds, especially a rattle. He can understand simply instructions and is working on standing and walking.



Miles has Down syndrome, ASD and nystagmus. He is currently participating in early intervention services. For more information on Miles, please contact Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org.
