    I am currently pregnant with our third child and sadly I think it will be our last due to having to have a 3rd CS. My two daughters were born with special needs, my 2 year old has semi-significant needs however my 1 year olds needs are low, she was born with a heart defect that was repaired at birth and now it is just monitoring. In a few years time once our kids have grown a bit and we are sure with our decision to have no more of our own we will definatley be looking into permanent care. It has always been close to my heart.

    Oh how aweful! I wish my DH would let me adopt, its something I have wanted to do my whole life, adopt after I have my own children, ut I too admit I don't think I could take on a high need child unless God gave me one.

    :-( Why is it so hard.

    So far I've had NO luck having a baby of my own and I know if I could, I would take any one of these beautiful angels and love them until the end of time...

    In Australia it costs very little take on a child under a Permanent Care order which is what most special needs children in this country will come under.

    What I find so heart breaking is many oversea's children who have DS will leave what they refer to as the "Baby House" into a mental institution at around the age 6 where they have their head shaved and be tied to their cot, no toys and very limited physical contact. Many will simply just refuse to eat and die.

    Reece's Rainbow is a wonderful site and I highly recommend people to have a look at the wonderful work they are doing to get these beautiful babies/children a loving family.

    I saw a documentary about orphanages in China and this is what they did over there. Also they were tied to chairs with potties underneath so catch any waste. It broke my heart to see this and we did look at adopting from there as I was so upset but DF was to old. He is not to old to have his own bio children but to old to adopt :shakeshead: and they went on his age and not mine (which is nearly 10 years younger). There was a lack of carers in the orphanages so this is what they did to the children so they knew where they were. Horrendous

    Women who give birth to babies with DS are encouraged to give their children up, these countries do not give financial support in regards to raising a beautiful DS child and they have very limited resources available. The mental insitutions are over crowded / under staffed and they can not look after the children so they are resorted to restraining them to their cots. It is heartbreaking.

    I know it can be difficult to look at these tiny children tied up but the more the world becomes aware of this one day I hope it will end.

    Having a special needs brother, this is something close to my heart too.. Those poor darlings
    I spent most of my childhood bringing up my brother. If only I could, I'd take one

    Wow! I just saw this. I really wish I had the money to help one of these beautiful children.
