Save a Child

What's Driving Us

It is an unfortunate fact that children with special needs are often placed for adoption because they’re not “typical” and are often not adopted in many countries. These children regularly grow up without parents and once they are 18 they are released into society and end up on the street without homes or families. These beautiful individuals are then seen as a drain on the government and society,
instead of contributing to a family in inspiring ways.

What You Can Do

We know special needs adoption is not for everyone. But take a moment to open your heart to the possibility. Learn what you can. Understand that you’re not only saving a child who desperately needs it, but that raising a child with special needs saves you in many ways. The stories we do where families bring home older disabled children always say that, despite the hardships, the children they adopt fill their home with joy and laughter
and love.
