Noah from Taiwan
UPDATE: Can you imagine your home with two sons? One in middle school and the other in elementary school? If so, we would love to share more about Noah (age 9) and Neil (age 5) with you! We had a chance to spend time with both boys over zoom during our latest “virtual Superkids trip”. (We can’t wait to actually GO to Taiwan for our next Superkids trip in Fall 2023!). The boys are in the same foster home, so they have a close bond. They are well-liked in school, with friends and good peer interactions. Noah is described as personable and talkative, while little Neil is more quiet and a bit shy. Neil clearly looks up to his older brother Noah and proudly told us about his skill with the Rubiks cube! Noah told us a few things about himself, speaking in English: Favorite color? “Green!” Favorite food? “Ice cream!” Least favorite food? “Bananas.” Favorite animal? “Rabbit!” Noah is in third grade and his favorite class is a computer class. Not one to be too boastful, during our zoom session Noah’s accompanying social worker coaxed him to share with us that he has very neat handwriting. If you think you could be the right family for Noah and Neil, please contact us at Superkids@gladney.org to review their profile.

Noah was born in 2014 and is 8 years old. Neil was born in 2017 and is 5 years old. Half-brothers Noah and Neil live with their foster parents and 13 year old foster sister. Noah and Neil have a good relationship with one another and with their foster sister. Noah's favorite activities include watching tv, playing board games and building with blocks! Noah is a little shy around new people and new environments. Once he warms up, he will seek hugs and wants to hold hands with people he feels comfortable with. Noah has an ADHD diagnosis, and the file from Taiwan states he has "traits similar to Asperger's syndrome". Noah is currently taking medication to help him focus, and he is attending weekly group therapy sessions. Noah is a 2nd grader in elementary school where math and Mandarin are his strongest subjects. During recess, Noah LOVES to pretend he is a policeman with his schoolmates! Are you a family that can give Noah the emotional support to help him build his self-confidence? Continue to work one on one with Neil to further support his vocabulary and physical development? Build Lego structures and go on new adventures with both?
