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. Thanks for the shout out. I so appreciate it :)

    Just a thought, have you guys considered listing the major children's hospitals that offer International Adoption clinics? They are a fabulous way to start your research and the doctors often have way more experience "in the real world" perspective from deciphering records from all over the world.

    As our doc put it, she's quite adept at reading what they MEAN even if their translators can't say it exactly right :) The whole "lost in translation" idea . . .
