The Waiting Child Program

Many folks ask us about our special needs adoption experience. Recently, I found this video that says it all, much better than I can possibly say.



The only thing I would add is that many, many countries also have special needs adoptions available. My experience was with China. But if God is tugging your heart for adoption from a different country, I urge you to consider that nation's "waiting children."

Hear Hear!! Our two youngest (and the 3rd that is one the way) are all SN adoptions - and we haven't had ANY regrets! When you think about it - many of us are SN folks. I wear both glasses and hearing aids - and as common as they are the go un-noticed....still they 'are' SN's.

You never know what kind of miracles are headed your way until you have the faith to embrace His will!

Takes a great person to take on a special needs child. We are learning to live with our SN child. He is our bio baby boy, but you would never know he had special needs. I would have never known that your cute little girl was special needs before reading.

Love seeing that happy face when I log on.

I watched this the other day and had the biggest cry. It is such a wonderful video and so many fantastic children are available for adoption.

I am so glad we changed programs or we would never have our wonderful daughter.

Hugs,
