I want to introduce you to the Eichhorn family.
I first started talking to this family last year when they contacted me for information on adoption from Uganda. They had met and fallen in love with an older child with significant special needs they had met in an orphanage during a missions trip. They were interested in adopting her. I was overjoyed to help. Happily, a few months ago they came home with their new daughter Jennifer and sent me this beautiful family photo. Jennifer not only now has a family but is a big sister to five younger siblings!
The Eichhorn family is now parenting six children with special needs! I can’t help but marvel at what a beautiful family they have.
I asked the Eichhorn family if they might be interested in answering some questions about special needs adoption for my friends and readers. Many of you are interested in special needs adoption but have questions about what life looks like parenting children (or multiple children) with special needs.
The Eichhorn family has graciously agreed to answer YOUR questions about special needs adoption.
What do you want to know about special needs adoption? I want to get your questions answered! Send them in and I will try my best to get them answered.
This family is living out such a beautiful example of stepping out of your comfort zone and providing a loving family for children desperately in need.
Please watch their video. Share it. And send in your questions! This is a great opportunity to learn from someone who has “been there” and who has a lot of experience.
