Welcome to No Place Like Home.

This blog is a place for information, answers and support for families who are considering international adoption, waiting or are home with their children. My name is Kimberley and I am the coordinator of this site. This blog is truly a network of families who are willing to support others along their journey to their child. The blogs listed on my sidebar are arranged by country and these families have volunteered to act as a resource to anyone who needs one. These are amazing people who are dedicated to helping families who are on the journey to their children in another country. If you are looking for someone to talk with or if you have a blog and would like to be available to help others, please feel free to e-mail me at timnkim@gmail.com.

China says little interest in 88 quake orphans up for adoption

Evidently only one of the 88 children who were orphaned in the earthquake has been adopted. It is believed that it is because many of them are disabled. Perhaps they will now consider parents from around the world.

Doesn't this just break your heart? Because of a child's physical limitations they are undesired as children -- to those Chinese Nationals who are interested in adopting only "perfect" children.

So sad, when there are so many families around the world who would happily welcome these children into their families.

I wonder if the CC*AA will release these childrens' files into the IA program after a time...
