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.

    Oh, thanks for sharing this list. As the mom of a newly adopted child (9 year old from Guatemala who has experienced abuse/neglect/extreme poverty) I love hearing how other adoptive moms handle the needs of their special children. We're feeling led to adopt a special needs child from China next and LOVE this site.

    Blessings,
