Jolene

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. Jolene enjoys playing with toy cars, riding her bike, playing with bouncy balls, drawing, and listening to stories. Jolene is initially quiet when introduced to new environments. Once she is comfortable, she becomes active and actively engages with familiar adults. Jolene likes to act affectionately towards familiar adults and LOVES to receive hugs from them. Jolene has a good relationship with her foster parents and 5-year-old foster brother. She enjoys narrating stories to her foster father and talking with her foster mother about events that took place during her day. Jolene has a diagnosis of global delay, and vision needs with a microcephaly diagnosis at birth. She has a past history of epilepsy with no current concerns noted. Jolene attends kindergarten and an after school early intervention education program. Her early education program provides small class size with one-on-one attention and various weekly therapies in OT, PT, speech, and sensory integration. She is progressing with the help of her therapies including in the areas of vocabulary and motor skills. Jolene responds well in therapy and at home to praise and encouragement! 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.
