This is why sometimes I wish I was a bit older:
When I first got into adoption again it was because my younger sister mentioned adopting a special needs child from China. We talked about the need for parents to take in the deaf children who were being neglected and not taught to communicate. As someone who studied ASL in college, I was pretty interested and set out to figure out how to do it. Sadly, I was immediately hit with the realization that its just not possible for me. I’m not even 25 yet.
I haven’t given up on the thought. I still plan to adopt at least one of my children from China but for right now I’ll be going through with the clinic next year and waiting to see what happens on this front. Once I’m older and more capable (funds-wise) I’ll be on my to China.
