Now that we've widened our search to include children up to age 5, I am learning a lot of new things.
For instance FAS stands for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Read more here.
(There are also FASD which is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.) I see it listed both ways.
We are hoping to adopt a child/children who is/are "developmentally on target."
It is our belief that children with special needs deserve a stay at home parent. We also think a special needs child would benefit from parents with parenting experience.
I am surprised, daily, at the number of children available for adoption from the foster care system in this country. I look at their faces and wonder how they've ended up in "the system."
