Joel

from Taiwan


We are excited to introduce siblings Joel and Jolene! Joel was born in 2013 and is 9 years old. Jolene was born in 2017 and is almost 5 years old. Some of Joel's favorite activites include building large castles with Legos, playing basketball and soccer. Joel is EXTREMELY proud of his basketball skills and thinks he is good at dunking the ball! Those who know Joel say he is shy and introverted during initial meetings. After becoming more familiar with someone, he will feel more relaxed and is comfortable carrying on a conversation with them. Joel has a good relationship with his foster family. He affectionately calls his foster mother 'auntie' and foster father 'uncle'. Joel enjoys playing games and chatting with his 6 year old foster brother. When his foster family's 11 year old grand-daughter visits, he enjoys playing board games with her. One of Joel's fond memories was from when his foster parents took him and his foster brother to "Spider-man: No Way Home." After the movie he excitedly narrated a large portion of the movie. Joel has a diagnosis of ADHD and is currently on medication to help with his concentration. Joel is a 3rd grader in elementary school and overall makes good grades. When asked, Joel stated computer class and physical education are his favorite periods. Joel shares that he has 7 close friends at school. During recess, he enjoys playing tag, and a game of cops and robbers. Joel likes being chased because he rarely gets caught! While Joel and Jolene live in separate foster homes, they get to see each other at events and private intimate meetings arranged by the foster agency. When together, they like to play with toy cars and jump rope. Are you a family that can give Joel the necessary time to help him build his confidence and self-esteem? Patience and time to encourage Jolene continue to make steps forward with her development? Continue to foster their sibling relationship through their shared love of sports? If you think you could be the right family for Joel and Jolene, please contact us at Superkids@gladney.org to review their profiles. To protect a child's privacy, Taiwan has strict rules limiting public photos of children.
