Children with Special Needs Share Special Bond

Isaiah and Veronica were both waiting to be adopted. And, both children had something else in common: a genetic disorder, Achondroplasia, which results in dwarfism. Melissa and Mark’s biological son, Michael, also has dwarfism. Mark and Melissa knew they could care for children like him and decided to grow their family through adoption. They reached out to Wide Horizons For Children to make it happen and were quickly matched with Isaiah. Baby sister Veronica soon followed. Watch their story and see how much joy waiting children with special needs bring to families who adopt.
