Adoption Video Series: Adopting a Waiting Child

The term “special needs adoption” sometimes causes families to think of images of children with severe, life-long disabilities. While there are certainly children who need forever families with more severe disabilities, the fact is that there are lots of children with minor/correctable to moderate needs such as cleft lip/palate (often corrected before they are adopted), heart defects, hearing or vision problems, hand/foot/limb deformities, missing limbs, Hepatitis B, spine deformity, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, neural conditions, and developmental delays.

The America World families in this video share their thoughts on adopting a Waiting Child and some insight into how the process works.  Visit our website to learn more, or email or call 800-429-3369 with questions.
