Hi There,
We live in Northern VT in a small town of less than 2000 people.
My fiance and I are getting married in September.
We have recently found that I am unable to become pregnant and am also unable to conceive. We decided almost immediately that we wanted to adopt. We also feel as though we can bring a child into our home and give them the extra care that a special needs child would need.
There were a few special needs that we are thinking about but deafness is something that we think we can actually provide for. We are both familiar with the deaf culture and have been raised around deaf children and adults. I was wondering if anyone on here has adopted a deaf infant- 2 years old?
We are preparing ourselves and researching to find out if this is the right choice for us.
Any and all advice will help us!! Thank you
