Special Needs (Waiting) Children refers to children who have medical special needs and/or are older children where attachment and bonding becomes the crucial special need. Without these children having the opportunity to be adopted by a family, they will typically spend the majority of their youth in institutionalized care and most will never have the opportunity to lead a normal life in a family.
Below you can see our latest group of special needs children. We cannot display pictures of these children to the public at large, however, you can view these children’s pictures as well as additional information on our website by contacting us. For more information about these children please contact Emily Fulkerson HERE.
We have the privilege to show these children’s files from a shared list. Don’t hesitate to contact us with your inquiries about these precious children! Email Emily Fulkerson HERE to be added to our Waiting Child e-newsletter.
We work with a wonderful organization, the International Adoption Clinic at UAB, located in Birmingham, AL, that can help you learn what might be involved medically with each child before you adopt. The International Clinic can also provide physical and occupational therapy as well as medical expertise after you adopt your child. They are wonderful in helping your family to be better prepared for your special needs child as well as a wonderful place to take your child after you return home from Taiwan. If you live out of the Birmingham area, please check with your social worker to see if a similar international clinic is available in your area.
