Okay my dear old pops is working in the middle east at a special needs school and has fallen in love with an orphan girl that is brought to his school (its a private occupational school but they give this girl free speech therapy) She is about 1 1/2 with he says speech issues and is possibly delayed<br>
....but he's absolutely taken with her<br>
....wants to bring her home (he's a softy my dad but also in his sixties).<br><br>
We are going to visit him in a few weeks.....<br>
I haven't thought about adoption lately as we are expecting a 3rd boy..<br>
but kept having a dream about a little girl so its got my mind spinning..<br><br>
*wanted to add one of my kids is special needs so I know some of the reality that a special needs child represents<br>
and medical expenses are not an issue as I live in a socialized medicine country....

I just read an article TODAY that stated that many middle eastern countries do not authorize international adoption with american citizens.<br><br>
OK I just reread that you don't seem to live in the US. But that is the first thing I would check in to- the likelihood of even getting a kiddo out of that country.

Its not that likely as adoption isn't always legal....but its recognized the same way its more guardianship not formal adoption - you cannot erase the original identity...I don't know the ins and outs but they told my father he could bring her back....but.....could special needs be different?<br><br>
And why am I feeling really excited about this idea?<br>
well we shall see what my dad says tomorrow but something about this situation feels as if it was meant to show me something atleast in my life...something I had shelved for a while....that although this is my last pregnancy I can have other children after through adoption so I guess I can be more excited doing the old snip snip or tying of the tubes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
