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.

Doctor-pa-loozah — adoptive momma (China) LMGNYC at La Bicicleta… $109 dollars in medical co-pays in a single day, plus two more appointments (possibly three), with a surgery likely
the many faces of life with piggy flu — adoptive momma (China) Ohilda at A Bouquet of Blessings… trying to survive the H1N1 virus while praying that her immune-compromised child doesn’t catch it from anyone
