THE LID EDGE:  FAMILIES WITH LOG IN DATE HAVE THE EDGE!

The CCCWA adds new children to the shared list once a month. For the first month that a child is available for adoption, they can only be matched with a family that is logged-in. The Waiting Child team monitors the shared list for potential matches for our LID families. Children with commonly accepted or “minor” conditions will generally be placed very quickly with a family who has a LID.  If your family is hoping to adopt a child who has been diagnosed with a minor, correctable and/or more commonly accepted condition or diagnosis, you will want to consider the LID Edge.

If you decide this is something you want to learn more about please contact me or one of our Waiting Child Specialists to learn more about this program.
