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
Maybe you are the family that will see the light from this little boy’s smile….
A little boy is six years old and has “a smile that lights up the room.” He communicates the best way he can but cannot talk or walk. He has moderate to severe cerebral palsy. He would really benefit from consistent therapy.
He does not yet attend school and his family is taking care of him without nursing staff.
He is African American and in the south eastern part of the US.
This placement can occur with an agency. Their fee of $8000 includes termination of birth parent rights and icpc (not finalization). Or you could use a private attorney or agency of your choosing.
Due to the urgent nature of this situation, you must have a current homestudy to be considered!!
If you would like more information about this precious little boy,;
If he is NOT your child, please share so he can find a very special family that will cherish and love him forever!!
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 email@example.com 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!

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 : firstname.lastname@example.org 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…

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:
