About Quinn

I always wonder about this when I read other blogs, so I'll tell you in case you're wondering. We were matched with Quinn after switching to the special needs program. We submitted a list of conditions we felt we could handle and two months later, got a call about Quinn. He suffered a common shoulder injury during birth that appears to have healed on its own. Minor conditions like this are common in China, I'm told. We heard of one little boy who had a birthmark on his wrist and was considered special needs.

Yes, adoptions of boys from China are rare. But not so rare to those considering kids with special needs. For whatever reason, far more people adopting from China want girls than boys.
