Whatever Wednesdays

February 25, 2009 by nohandsbutours TongguMomma, what we're reading 1 Comments

Each Wednesday we post links from the previous week that touch on special needs adoption. Our hope is that these small snapshots provide you with a glimpse of life after adopting through China’s waiting child program… both the long-term blessings and the challenges that come with parenting a child with special needs. We also hope to raise awareness about a variety of special needs.

First, I ask that y’all pray for the family of Lydia Miyashita, who passed away yesterday after a tough battle with AML, a form of leukemia. Lydia’s parents adopted her from China several years ago through the non-special needs program. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, church community and friends.
