Today I was a guest on Creating a Family’s radio show to discuss adopting as an American Family living abroad. Whitney Reitz, from USCIS, was on the panel as well…we had a great chat on such an interesting adoption topic!
Creating a Family is a wonderful nonprofit that provides education and resources about infertility and adoption. We discussed the differences U.S. citizens living abroad go through on their adoption journey and how agencies like GWCA/CAN can assist with this process. It was also great to share helpful tips for families, even pointing out specific adoption cases such as military families.

China | 3 years old | Girl
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
