What to know before you adopt a child with thalassemia from China
There are thousands of people in America who would love to adopt a child from China or another country.
What you may not know is that some of these prospective who aren't looking to adopt healthy children.
There are lists of people seeking children with medical challenges that range from Down syndrome to dwarfism.
What many hopeful parents don’t know is that there are numerous children with thalassemia needing adoption.
That's why I decided to interview someone who has had successfully adopted a special needs child with thalassemia from China.
Lynzie Cammilleri and her husband Joe adopted their son Cai from China when he was just four years old.
When Cai joined Lynzie and Joe's two natural born children, Callie and Corbyn, all of their lives changed dramatically.
Please watch our conversation on YouTube to learn more about the adoption process and how to make an internationally adopted child's assimilation easier.
Thank you, Lynzie for this treat!
