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.

I Had High Hopes! -- adoptive parents (China) the Ferrills at The Ferrill Bunch... on last week's visit to the hematologist

{The time has come for Andrew's surgery} and Andrew's Progress -- adoptive momma (China) Steffie B. at Never Too Many... on her son's open-heart surgery this past weekend

Hospital Pics and What Faith Can Do -- adoptive momma (Columbia and Serbia) Lorraine at All Are Precious In His Sight... her daughter was on life support last week, but is stable now, so please stop by and offer some encouragement

At Which Point I Employ Sarcasm -- adoptive momma (China) Shirlee McCoy at And Then There Were Seven... a recent conversation about albinism at Chinese school

Labels -- adoptive momma (China) AmFam at American Family... looking past the labels to truly see her little girl, realizing that it's not about "fixing" her girl

-- adoptive momma (China) Wife of the Prez at Room For At Least One More... her daughter starts speech therapy this week

How Far We've Come -- adoptive momma (China) Cheri at Loving Lia... an update affter two years home with their daughter, whom they originally thought had a brain cyst, but found out after adoption that she has cerebral palsy, seizures, institutional autism and verbal apraxia
