Group Description

There are over 500,000 children in our foster care system.



Many of these children waiting for forever families require families with skills to care for their extra special needs, or require life care commitments. This group is for all of those, professionals and for adoptive families, willing to go that extra distance to find a home or provide a home.




NOTICE: I urge caution in joining that list, or any list, as the Internet is NOT a safe place. One should be very careful about what information one shares via email lists, mine or any others.


We want this list to be a place where those charged with finding families for these special children can network and get to know adopting families who's hearts are big enough to go the extra mile and care for children with many complicated and complex needs, like Down's Syndrome, Shaken Baby Syndrome, quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, rare genetic abnormalities, complex physical illnesses, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and others, or those children who have profound needs.

Anyone interested in being a prospective adoptive family for a very special needs child, or anyone who is an adoption professional seeking to find families for these children, please join us now.

Adoption professionals, please share the info about this list with your collegues, state adoption specialists and adoptive family recruitment staff.



Every child deserves a permanent, loving and stable family where their needs are met.



This list is NOT a child placing organization, agency or resource. This is a an Internet mailing list for the support of families and professionals working to find homes for children with challenges.
Pleased by advised that all parties involved in placing children should observe all state and federal adoption laws, including ICPC, and used qualified adoption attorneys.
