Hi and welcome to the group. Is there a specific special need you are looking into? I have 2 special needs kiddos, my bio son and my oldest from China. The only real prep work we did with our adoption was online research and we had her file reviewed by an international adoption specialist who was familiar with her need. We had to have our home study updated by our social worker to show that we were knowledgeable about her SN, but that was really not a big deal.

Let me know if you have any more specific questions or feel free to PM me any time! Best of luck!!

The child I am looking to possibly adopt has Spina Bifida. I have been trying to do some research so I can be prepared.

Thank you for replying.
