A Great Need: Children In China & Taiwan With Down Syndrome


Gladney's Superkids spent the month of October in Taiwan and China. We traveled to over a dozen cities to see more than 200 adoptable children. The final trip will take Superkids to Guizhou for a week over the Thanksgiving holiday, to update files for children who were formerly on the ‘shared list’. As Gladney staff and volunteers return home, the hearts and minds of the teams collectively reflect and wonder and hope. We hope that there are families for these children we have met.
