Why should we adopt a child with special needs

  • Most of us cannot wait for their children to learn to walk before the others, to show off for their first words or their achievements in sport. Many parents get excited with all this. They experience the remarkable achievements of their children and the pride of sharing it with others.

    But there are other children as well. Special children.

    They are special because their legs are weaker than those of other children, but their urge for walking is the same.
    Because they try harder to do what others did long ago. Special, because they find difficulty in seeing us, so they stretch their arms to recognize us.
    Special, because their hearing is impaired, so they follow our lips to understand us.

  • When we adopt a child with special needs, we will not experience the joy of a parent, hugging their new born son or daughter. But we will hug a child, who has hoped day after day to be cuddled in someone’s arms.
    We will hear “Mom” when other parents have long listened to their children sing songs.
    We will spend long hours with a speech therapist to hear the first words of our child.
    We will help our child to overcome the pain of their past. We will cuddle them until they feel love. We will make them feel love, trust and attachment.
    We will relieve them of nightmares.
    We will help them learn to walk or accept the truth it will never happen.
    We will be those whose hair children recognize when their eyes cannot see us.
    And those who will speak with our fingers, to help them hear us.
    Or perhaps be those who will help the child fight diseases, or maybe those who will give them the chance to spend their short life filled with love.
    And perhaps even those who will place the small prosthesis for our child to begin drawing.

  • Science has long shown us that an adoptive parent is better than any therapist. The adoptive parent improves child’s development and is capable , in case of no serious damage, to allow the child to overcome any shortcomings.

    Experience has long shown us that the adoptive parent is able to help each child to learn to talk better than any speech therapist.

    Statistics have long proved that the strength of the family is so boundless that can help the child to overcome many diseases and deficiencies in their development. It is so great that helps those who need to accept that they have to live with the disease. It fills with love the lives of those whose diseases are incurable.

  • When we adopt ‘special’ children, we become “special” parents.
    Special in the little hands of a child who needs them more than any other children to achieve what others have already achieved.
    Special in the eyes of a child who seems never understand. Special in the heart of a child that we have endowed with hope.
    He or she may not make us share the joy of great achievements like other children, but may show us surprising depths of humanity.
    They may never see our eyes, but leave us speechless for their ability to conquer the world with the beauty of their voice.

    They may never graduate from university but strike us with human willpower and ability to achieve the impossible.
    They may give new meaning to our lives or show us how significant our hug is and how great the power of our love can be.
