The picture to the right shows “home” for some of the children in the care of one of one of our partner organizations in Taiwan. When this room fills – it fills with children and activity and projects. Not unlike daycare and preschool here in our communities. Of course, the difference is that these children do not go home to loving families at the end of the day. We are thankful to our partner organizations in Taiwan, Cathwel and Chung Yi, who continue to maintain international adoption programs that give toddlers and older children the opportunity for a lifelong family of their own.
Exciting News! One family in our Taiwan program was thrilled to complete their adoption and arrive home prior to Chinese New Year! They came home with a sibling group of 2! Brennan, age 4 and Emily, age 2!
There are many sibling groups available for adoption from Taiwan! Most sibling groups include one child that is school aged. Gladney’s partner organizations work extremely hard to always place siblings together in families – however, due to the unique needs of adopting a sibling group, these children tend to wait much longer for their forever families. If you are interested in learning more about adopting siblings, please be in touch with Gladney Taiwan Program Caseworker, Mary Chapman, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Program Update: This month we received a referral of a 20 month old girl for a family waiting in our Chung Yi program! Gladney currently has 6 families with referrals in various stages of the PAIR/dossier/court process.
