There are a ton of links from the RR site, both to families that are in-process and families that have their kiddos home. The RR site gives you a good idea of the special needs kids in Eastern Europe that are waiting for their forever families to find them.

Not sure what country you are looking at, but the China special needs programs are popular too. http://www.chinesechildren.org/ is my favorite China agency. Not sure if you'll find any blog links there though ...

We adopted our two 6 year old kiddos from Ukraine last year, both have Down syndrome, and we found them through Reeces Rainbow.

Re: international special needs adoption

www.rainbowkids.com is a wonderful site with a huge photolisting and lots of articles/information/links about special needs international adoption

http://www.nohandsbutours.com/ I bookmarked this site, too, but haven't spent much time on it.

Both of my sons were special needs international adoptions

Re: international special needs adoption

One of my favorite blogs to read is by a mom who has 4 adopted kiddos and 3 biological. Two of her adopted girls have DS and were adopted through Reece's Rainbow.
