Special Needs Adoption

Special Needs Adoption

Adoptive parents who are committed to parenting a child with special needs are always needed.  If you have the facilities and resources to adopt a special needs child, please let us know. We pride ourselves on the ability to place a child with physical, mental or emotional disabilities. There are many blessings that accompany raising a child with special needs. If you would like to speak with other families who adopted special needs children, just ask us!

In an effort to make adoption of children more affordable for adoptive families and in order to assist parents who are faced with additional medical bills for children born with birth defects, genetic conditions such as Down’s Syndrome or other disabilities, financial assistance may be available through grants and loans. This adoption assistance assists the adoptive family with reaching their goal of finalizing their adoption and ensures a home for the special needs child.  Additionally, adoption subsidy may be available for adoptions of children with special needs.

Also, many, if not most, children adopted from foster care meet the definition of “special needs” for tax purposes. We encourage you to speak with your CPA/Accountant about this issue if you intend to adopt a child in foster care.
