This baby has been up for adoption for several months. He has a brain injury similar to my son's, and we've seen great results with Feldenkrais. My heart breaks for this guy; he needs a home already:

Spence Chapin's kids are often posted on adoption groups...i would be they've gotten a ton of homestudies for this baby. I know people who have worked with them who say they are great once you get your foot in the door, but actually getting IN isnt easy, i know of so many people who got no response despite sending their HS for babies on that site. You really need to be a squeaky wheel. I think they take their time in finding families or something.

I've sent in a request for more information and have told them that I would love to pursue his adoption, but no one has returned any of my multiple calls or an email I sent.  I've been praying for him since he's been up and would love to pursue him.

I just went back and re-read this, thank you for posting.  I will continue to write and call and see if that helps.
