Whatever Wednesdays

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.

    Just found your site through a friends blog. I adopted a little girl from Hong Kong with Down Syndrome, Congenital Heart Disease and Sensory Integration Disorder. I love to help spread the word about special needs adoptions…please let me know if I can ever help!
