Whatever Wednesdays

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.

  1. I just thought I'd mention. I'm not Reese's Mom, I'm her sister. Common mistake, but I thought I'd mention it.

  2. Thanks for posting these links every week! I love reading them.
