Welcome to Special Angels Adoption. Are you a loving family interested in and open to adopting babies or toddlers who have special needs? Then this is the place for you!
From personal experience, as adoptive moms, the staff at Special Angels Adoption can testify that these unique children are a wonderful, rewarding addition to a family. It is fantastic that you too see the amazing gifts these children have to offer.
We are an adoption agency as well as advocacy ministry. We are a place for organizations or birth mothers trying to place a special needs baby for adoption to find loving capable parents delighted to parent a baby with unique needs. We are sometimes the agency handling the situation or sometimes we partner with adoption agencies and attorneys across the country.
When agencies or birth families contact us about available adoption situations, we will contact our database of families. If an adoptive family is interested, they can choose to pursue the adoption situation. Be aware that there might be more than one family whom the situation fits and the final decision is up to the placing agency or birth mother. If your family is not interested, that is OK too. You will still be presented to future situations that meet your individual profile.
You can also choose to add your picture to our website so that potential birth mothers can see that there really are families out there who love these precious children.
In order to be on our list of potential parents, you must meet the following criteria.
You must be homestudy approved to adopt special needs children (in other words the homestudy cannot say that you are approved to only adopt a healthy child). A copy of your homestudy will need to be sent to us directly from your social worker.
You must be open to and educated about at least one special needs a child might be born with such as: congenital syndromes, blindness, deafness, missing or deformed limbs, other physical deformities, respiratory difficulties, heart defects, cerebral palsy, dwarfism, digestive tract problems, G-tube, wheelchair bound, significant development delays, significant physical delays, large exposure to drugs or alcohol, genetic mental health problems, cleft lip and palate, club foot, HIV, hepatitis, hormone deficiencies, uncorrectable medical condition, surgeries needed, preemie, mute or speech delayed, medically fragile, down syndrome, turners syndrome, heart issues, chromosomal issues, drug addiction, fetal alcohol syndrome, etc.
You must have a PDF or Word profile. Online profile can be used in some situations but some agencies we work with are not able to use online profiles. These are used to show adoption agencies or birth families that are interested in learning more about you. We can give guidance on how to make one for free
We do not discriminate, all family types are welcome to join our group.
