FACT 5

Many hopeful parents are waiting to adopt a child with DS

 
 

Birth parents able to raise their child is best. 

But, if unable, we connect them with eager adoption parents at no cost to the birth parents.

Our partner, National Down Syndrome Adoption Network,

coordinates this entire process.
