Waiting Children

Hello everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! I also hope you've had a chance to check out this page as well as our domestic and Caribbean pages. There's a lot happening right now with Give1Save1!! And remember, if you would like to be featured as the family of the week, send an email to tonyagarrick5 (at) gmail.com and I'll send you the application.

Let's talk for a minute about "waiting children." Do you know what that term means?  If you're new to the adoption community, you may not.  Let me give you a brief explanation.  
If a child is older than 3-4 years old, has a special need or is part of a sibling group, they are considered waiting children.  Basically, they are not healthy infants.  BUT, they still need families. Not all special needs are untreatable.  A special need could be diabetes, minor heart defects, limb differences, or developmental delays.  Some are more serious than others. 
In some countries, children with special needs are well cared for. Some are separated from the other children in their orphanage.  Some are sent to mental institutions. And some are adopted.

I know a family who is adopting a sweet boy from China who is waiting for his family. Can you help? I think you can!
Read more about our family of the week below, on their blog, watch their video and donate here or from the big "Donate" button on the side of our page.

Thank you for spending a few minutes here today and thank you for giving to the Tucker family!
