      A reporter recently asked me why anyone would consider adopting a special needs child. I was interested in getting feedback from some other women who might have considered this.

      Would you - or, better yet, HAVE you - considered adopting a special needs child? Why or why not?

        • having given birth to a child who was born with special needs due to prematurity, i feel confident that i could adopt one as well. i still have no idea where the strength came from to address the uncertainities that come from having a family that includes a child who requires “extra“, but it’s there. and the rewards are invaluable for the entire family when that child thrives and reaches his or her potential.

        • I have considered it but a bit late in life and I felt making a committment that I might not be around to keep would be unfair on the child.
          It would take tremendous amount of love and patience to take a step like this, but I am sure there are many big hearts around.

        • If I was healthy and able to give a child with special all he/she needs I would.
          Unfortunately not in the cards for me.
