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.

  1. Hi! I'm Rachel over at the Benjamin Bunch and I just wanted to let you know that I'm not an adoptive parent. What an amazing experience that would be, but we haven't adopted a baby. I just wanted to let you know. Thank you for sharing these wonderful stories to this amazing community of families.

  2. Rachel - oops! Thank you... I have no idea how that happened.
