special needs adoption

Almost all children eligible for international adoption today have at least some degree of special needs. In adoption, the term “special needs” doesn’t always refer to a physical disability. Special needs can range from simply being older than the age of 5 to minor developmental delays to conditions requiring lifelong care.
