BENEFITING: Gladney Center

EVENT: 2016 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016

THE STORY:

Gladney’s Superkids provides developmental screenings, caregiver trainings, and adoption advocacy for children in international orphanages. Since 2007, over a dozen Superkids trips have been made with Gladney staff and professional volunteers, including physicians, early childhood development specialists, and teachers. In 2015, Superkids teams visited 300 children in 14 orphanages in China and Taiwan. So far, over 50 of those children have either been adopted or matched with Gladney families now in the adoption process, and an additional 20 of those children have either been adopted or matched with families through other adoption agencies! Gladney’s advocacy through Superkids has a wide and collaborative reach, in order to find homes for these children in need.

The world of intercountry adoption has changed significantly and continues to evolve with the majority of children available for adoption being waiting children, who are older children and children with special needs. It is Gladney’s hope to find loving homes for as many of these children as we can. As a result of specific relationships with caregiving organizations and partner orphanages, Gladney’s Superkids teams gather real and up-to-date information on waiting children, which helps us to advocate to find homes for children who would otherwise live a lifetime in orphanages without the love and care of families. In addition, we are able to improve outcomes for children who may never be adopted. Superkids provides caregiver training to advance attitudes towards children with special needs so that they develop beyond previous expectations and reach mobility milestones. Superkids also provides direct support, such as delivering specialized bottles for children with cleft lip/palate, delivering wheelchairs, and training caregivers on their use.

Obtaining hands-on, eyes-on developmental screenings of waiting children by Superkids professional volunteers is invaluable in the necessary effort of identifying loving and prepared prospective couples who have a parenting heart for these special children. By having your partnership, our goal is to send Superkids volunteer teams on two trips per year (or more!) and to continue to grow our volunteer base of medical and early childhood development professionals, all in order to make a positive impact on the lives of these children by getting to know them, advocating for them, and placing them in permanent, loving adoptive families when possible.
