Excellent Blog Post Regarding The Waiting Adoptive Parent:
Dear friends of waiting adoptive moms: some things to know (also, we’re sorry)
1. Your friend is not crazy. (She is adopting.)
There is, I will admit, a fine line between those two but still it’s good to remember. The international adoption of a child requires enough paperwork to kill a small forest. And more governmental red tape than you can believe. Imagine your longest, most frustrating trip to the DMV. Now quadruple that, add in twelve more governmental agencies in two countries, and remember it’s not a driver’s license you’re waiting for but the final piece of paper that says this family you’re creating can finally, finally be together. Yeah. Not crazy. But close.

Now residing in Cambodia, she had the idea of producing a video about the Maryknoll Deaf Development Programme, to help promote its work and recruited her friend, Sita Verma, as a partner. Together they developed a project to produce a five-minute DDP video. Stay tuned!
Take the time...
For a waiting child, a moment is everything. A moment can make a difference between a hug and a bruise. A moment can make a difference between a warm meal and starvation. A moment can make a difference between a home or...
Children without permanent families are at the highest risk for abuse, neglect, and trafficking. The most vulnerable are those with special needs. Those who are left hanging on a moment.
They need not wait a moment longer. Right now, families want to bring the most vulnerable of these children into their lives. They need your help to do so.
Our goal is to reach $5,000 by the end of the year in order to help 10 more children find their forever family and to make their moment of opportunity last a lifetime.
So, do you have a moment?
