hello !
first off, my mother was adopted, knows her birth parents...and while she doesn't particularly have a very close relationship with them (my parents are VERY stuck in the religion and belive that since my grandma-diana had my mother when she was 17 and out of wedlock...she is not worthy of their time), i do.
i've always wanted to have three children of my own and adopt a 4th....with down syndrome. i used to assist in special ed classes...and i have a very fond place in my heart for these children....luckily, my husband is more than fine with it...he has been reading up on down syndrome...etc.
keep in mind...this adoption will be in the future...i'd like to birth my 3 children first (i'm due in august for my first..)
i was wondering if anyone could tell me the procedures for adopting a special needs child? what the people who come over to examine everything look for....the qualifications i'd need to have as well as byron....if down syndrome children are even up for adoption...etc.

any help given would be very greatly appreciated by me. thank you all so much.

and good luck with the adopting process!!!!! i think it's wonderful that so many of you are willing to go through with it..<3.

Hi and welcome to the group, sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I'm Marla, mom of 4, including 2 bio boys (one with Down Syndrome) and 2 daughters from China. I don't know how common it is for kids with DS to become available for adoption, but I'm sure it happens and think it's wonderful that you are considering that in the future. The requirements will be the similar whether you adopt special needs or not, and those are dependent on the state you live in (or country you adopt from, if you adopt internationally). You'll have to have a home study, which is really not that bad, and of course fill out mountains of paperwork.

Best of luck with your pregnancy and future adoption plans!
