Adopting a child is a life-changing decision for both the parents and the waiting child. And while there are many relatively healthy children who wait to be adopted, there are also many children who wait for a family simply because they have a special need. Some special needs are quite minor, while others require some type of intervention or correction. Some children wait to be adopted due to a health issue requiring surgery, while others have chronic, though quite-manageable health issues.

Adopting a special needs child may be in your family's future. You are now taking the first step to educating yourself and others about the joys and challenges of loving one of these incredible children
