Adoptive mom Beth was recently featured on the Ergobaby blog, giving readers a look into her family's adoption process and the subsequent bonding and attachment. Beth, who adopted through the Ethiopia Waiting Child Program, writes about the fear of the unknown when adopting a child with a special need. For little Jude, though his condition sounded serious, the love of his family has helped him thrive.

"The doctors say that his brain suffered from failure to thrive, a condition usually caused by general neglect. Orphanages simply cannot provide the love and stimulation that a family can and his little brain was permanently changed because of it. Now that he’s with a family, he’s caught up developmentally and is absolutely the best baby I’ve ever met."
