From the last few weeks, some good stuff we’ve read that relates to adoption and/or parenting a special needs child.

As always, if you are a traveling family, or have posted something, or read something, that you’d like to share here on No Hands But Ours, please let us know at nohandsbutours@gmail.com.

In the news:

Creating a Family has complied their Top Ten Tips for Avoiding Delays When Filing for the Adoption Tax Credit.

And from the Parenting Squad, 5 Ways to Protect Your Special Needs Child

In the blog world:

Shelly, who blogs at Hoot’s Momma, recently celebrated one year home with her daughter Libbie. And as she looks back at their first year together, she candidly shares about the first, incredibly difficult, days with their daughter.

Andrea, who blogs at Adoption Road, is mom to Lydia who has a special need of unilateral microtia. And Lydia recently received a cutting-edge device to help her hear, and Andrea gives a great review for other parents of children with similar special needs.

Kelly, who blogs at My Overthinking, shares her list of adoption themed books.

And Mary, who blogs at Grown in Our Nest, looks back on the first four months with her new daughter, Gracie. She shares honestly about those early days – and struggling with a feeling of regret.

Traveling Families:

And lastly, if you’re like all of us around here, you’ll want to take a few moments (or hours!) and travel vicariously with these families currently in China to bring home their kids.
