There are children all over the world who need families and homes. “Waiting children” and “Special needs children” may sometimes be overlooked. Most often, those “special needs” simply require someone to love them.

This video dispels lots of myths about waiting children with special needs. These kids are lovable and so deserving of home and family. There are some children whose special needs actually do mean special care. But those who have adopted children in this category have talked of the rewards and blessings of having special-needs children in their lives. Take a look at the faces of these waiting children and act on what your heart tells you to do!
