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. Thank you so much. We are so scared and just trying hard to hold it together each day. The comments and prayers of people mean so much (even in the surreal blog world).
