Whatever Wednesday

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.

    THANK YOU so much to linking to my post about me w a i t i n g while my daughter had surgery! It took three times longer than we were originally told…and though I know it wasn't "major", during those moments, it was forever. It gave me a much greater empathy for those who have illnesses or disease…and won't be "done" in a week or less….

    Blessings!
