Special Needs

Caring and advocation for children with special needs has long been central to our work and mission at Holt International.

Today, the vast majority of children joining families through international adoption also have at least some minor special needs. Read stories about how Holt sponsors and donors help care for children with disabilities and other needs around the world. In this section, you will also find stories by and about adoptive families who have adopted children with a disability or healthcare need; learn about needs common among children waiting for families; and find resources to help families adopt and parent the children who most need families today!
