Sugar and spice and everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of…
This little girl is being placed by her grandmother who freely admits she is not attached the way she should be to her. She was placed with grandma at age 2 1/2 by the state. This little one was drug exposed prenatally and grandma believes she would benefit from a full IEP evaluation for learning support. She is not impulsive. She loves to draw! She also loves to do ANYTHING with anyone, she craves attention that grandma admits she does not give… This little one is socially behind, per her grandma, and does not have any close friends. She has some self protective mechanisms in place, such as zoning out, when she is given criticism or lengthy directions for a task. Grandma says doing anything with her makes her happy.
She is completely functional and capable and, with the proper family who can give her affection and time that she is craving, she has awesome potential to set the world ablaze!!
There is some urgency with this situation, as the grandmother just cannot seem to love this little girl the way she deserves to be loved.
- No children or, if there are children, they should be older than this little girl so she can have lots of individual attention.
- Must be homestudy ready
- Live close enough to the state of Indiana, or be willing to maintain contact with grandmother and her sibling, who is also placed with the grandmother.

And once again, thank you friends for sharing these situations and caring so much about the children and families affected by adoption. Lets pray that a family’s heart is drawn towards this little girl and they have a hole in their heart, shaped just for her to fill, and that they find this post and find her… Please share that they can find her…

UPDATE: 5/24/16 …Three very special families were presented to the birth family yesterday!! Sara thanks all of you for sharing and responding. But right now, this situation is CLOSED as the family reviews the qualified families!! So exciting! This little one will have a family right from the start!! Please pray for this little one as he is born and has surgery this week.
Special Angels Adoption needs a family right now for a baby boy that is due next week!! This little guy is prenatally diagnosed with myeloschisis spina bifida and hydrocephalus. After birth, it is expected that he will need surgery right away. This little guy will need a special family willing to make sure he gets the therapy he needs to reach his fullest potential.
a homestudy ready family with current clearances. Your homestudy must be easily obtainable or in a format that can be overnighted, emailed or faxed as it must be received by Special Angels by MONDAY, May 23, 2016. The placing family has no preference for any particular family type or size. The birth family wants a family that will agree to an OPEN adoption. The family must sign a non-disclosure agreement with the placing agency.
Fees: approximately $10,000, including everything except post placements and finalization. The placing agency will work with the adopting family to get adoption subsidies to help with his long term medical needs.
If this little guy sounds like your special angel, and you HAVE a CURRENT homestudy; contact
As always, if this is not your baby, please share and pray so this little one can have a family right from the start. If you think this is YOUR baby … please look for information about this particular special need and be SURE… because the worst thing you can do is the birth family pick you and then you decide… well… maybe it is too much for me…. So research and pray and call!!
AT Four, most little guys fly by for a fleeting hug and smiles flash over their face as they slash with their swords… in their ninja turtle outfits…
This little one is a lot more patient with loving… He is chronologically four, but developmentally at a one year old level. He has a medical condition that makes it difficult for him to thrive. He is beginning to EAT and pinches food between his two fingers like a champ! He interacts, but does not speak!! Sounds like a perfect candidate for ASL!! He has some fine motor skills with his hands, but lacks effective speech.
He is located in the WESTERN part of the US. Marian has had a few families respond, but “they all go away” this little one will be a life long commitment ( what child is not? ) . I know there is a family that will love and cherish and teach him!!
The fees:$ 3500 for the agency + the attorney fees of $ 3000.
If your heart is saying…Oh yes!! I need to know more!! And you have a current homestudy with current clearances…
If he is a great fit for your family… contact MARIAN!! If not, please PRAY and SHARE that he finds his family Today!
Love to all of you, Esther

UPDATE: 2/5/15 Stephanie said she has had 25 inquiries and sent out 7 registration forms to those that are homestudy ready!! That is exciting news 🙂 Thank you all for sharing and responding…If you have not responded yet and want to, just bookmark the blog post so you can find it again when you are READY!!
Every time I post a situation about a child or unborn baby with Down syndrome…my stats EXPLODE…The blog is shared tens of thousands of times;
The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network (NDSAN)
Does NOT have families in every state!!
The NDSAN needs home-study ready families in the following states:
District of Columbia Montana
Hawaii New Hampshire
Illinois New Jersey
Kentucky North Dakota
Oregon Rhode Island
South Dakota Tennessee
That is 26 states where they need registered families!! That means more states are without families than states that have ready families!! And this list does not include the states where only one family is registered. I would love to see a family, at least ONE, for every state listed…WHY NOT??
It costs nothing to register;
you are waiting for that special one
and you will NEVER hear about the child IN YOUR STATE
that needs a family…
unless you register.
We are registered!! It is easy if you have a current home study and are open or even actively seeking a baby or child with Down syndrome.
The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network (NDSAN) has a registry of adoptive families who are home-study ready to adopt, and desire to adopt a child with Down syndrome. They are not an agency, and there are no fees for their services!
Josiah and ME 🙂
If you have a
- current, domestic, signed and dated home study that can be used for both public and private adoptions in any state,
- and you are immediately available to adopt,
why not register with the NDSAN?
When they are told about a child with Down syndrome needing a home in the US, they will do a query in their registry to see what families would best fit the needs of that child. A report is generated and families are contacted.
If your home study is updated and you are immediately available to adopt, email Stephanie Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you a registration form.
For more information on the NDSAN, go to www.ndsan.org, and also visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/dsadoption , where they constantly update and share information about children in public custody who need homes (private situations are kept confidential).
The NDSAN helped with the placement of 44 children in 2014,
so contact Stephanie to get on the registry today!
If you reached this blog because you are a Mom or/and a Dad and looking for a home for your special needs little one;
If your child or children are
already born or
maybe you just got news from one of your prenatal tests that you are expecting a little one that you love so much but are overwhelmed with the thought of being a mommy or a daddy to a special angel…
First of all, I am so sorry ….
but know, coming to this page was not a mistake. God loves you and loves your baby too. There is a plan and a purpose for their life and what is happening right now in your life. Thank you for looking at adoption as a possible choice for your little one(s).
Let me reassure you…there are families that would feel blessed to be there forever for your baby or child
no matter the diagnosis.
If this is YOU, contact me at my personal email : email@example.com and I WILL help you find the family that you imagine…
I am not an agency, not a facilitator, not a professional…just a mom, and we will speak mom to mom…
Update: 1/26/15 at 4:00pm Eastern Time… This situation is ON HOLD while they screen the families who have responded! I will let you know as soon as there is another update 🙂 Thank you all so much for caring and sharing!!
THIS IS NOT A REHOMING
This is not a picture of her sorry…Picture is only available to interested families.
There is little girl that is seven. A princess, loving to have her hair fixed pretty; nail polish and the works.
Twirling around with strips of paper, she just needs the music inside of her soul to dance. She needs a new family to help her grow into the lady that is inside of her.
Her momma just moved away from grandma and momma just cannot do it alone.
This little one is African American and diagnosed as mildly autistic. The agency has been looking for a family for a while and asked if I could help. I am praying that God raises up her family and they see this post. So please share it… Here is the information that I have:
- Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
- Fees: $11,000 including everything except finalization
- Loves dogs
- Is NOT aggressive or violent!!!
- Shows her discomfort by withdrawing
- Is not currently in school (was in school prior to moving)
- Loves to be hugged
- Covers her ears with loud noises
- Not very verbal but can make her wishes known
- Plays mostly by herself
- Is toilet trained!!
- Has three favorite morning TV shows
- Eats most everything except for milk and carrots
- Loves to play with paper and learn and play toys for children
- The birthfather is known but not involved in her life
The birth mother is open to all family types. The agency requires a current home study and profile.
If the description of this little girl touches that yearning part of you; and your heart says,
..”this one, this one I have been waiting for… even though I have never met her or held her”…
and you know you could be her family forever:
