International Adoption :: Introduction

International adoption is becoming an increasingly popular option. Today, more international adoptions are not of infants, but of toddlers or children. Frequently, these children have been living in group homes. Medical care is sporadic, and often not recorded. They are casualties of war or of destitute mothers who have abused alcohol or other drugs.

This means there is a high risk of adopting a child with FASD. FASD now ranks with hepatitis and HIV/AIDS as one of the top three medical problems with international children who are adopted.

Yet, as for anyone who has FASD, there is hope and help for these children.
