Adoption still a long wait for special children

To sensitise people to the issue of adopting children with special needs, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and Cycle Pratishthan will conduct a bicycle rally in the city on November 8.

The numbers have been increasing over the years of people wanting to adopt children, but there are very few who want to take care of a child with special needs. While the Society of Friends of Sassoon Hospital (SOFOSH) has planned a series of events to highlight the problem during the Adoption week (November 14-21), Madhuri Abhyankar, Director at SOFOSH admits that there are 28 children who are mentally challenged and with special needs who have not been placed for adoption yet. On the other hand, over the past year there has been an increase in the number of people who have adopted children from their centre.

Seventy one children were adopted in 2004, 76 in 2005, 97 in 2006, 81 in 2007 and 69 in 2008. This year nine NRI couples have adopted children and five are foreigners.

It is also not infertility that is among the primary reason for adoption of children. Says B V Sivaramakrishna, ''My daughter who stays in USA has adopted a 13-month-old baby girl from SOFOSH. She is only 33 but decided to first adopt a child before planning her own,''says the Sivaramakrishna.

For Dr Sonali Pingale, adopting her 'first' child never really posed a problem. ''There was a lot of paper work and several questions that were asked about the financial and emotional well being of the adopted child.

But two years after she adopted a girl child, Pingale even went ahead and had a biological child so that the children can grow up as siblings and 'we can be a large family', she smiles. A child who has been adopted told The Indian Express on the condition of anonymity that it does take a while to accept that he or she has been adopted. ''Our lives are complicated but parents assure us of their love and trust,''says an 18-year-old girl who has been adopted.

Pingale will be among several parents who have adopted children with special needs and will narrate their experiences at a function to be conducted by SOFOSH at the IMA hall at Tilak Road.

Am Taisia from USA. After being in relationship for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr CAFAi, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by reffering him or her to the only real and powerful Dr CAFAi who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email cafaispiritualtemple@yahoo.com) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything

My name is Sarah Jacoby from USA, Three weeks ago I and my boyfriend had a conflict, so with that he broke up with me saying he no longer wanted to associate with me anymore, I never knew he was interested in working out his marriage with another girl, I was helpless because I loved him so much more than myself, after begging and pleading with him I realized it was out of my hands, he really was leaving me, I could not stay without him, I tried to figure things out with him but he is not listening me, he told me that he is no longer interested that I should look for someone else, I tried all my best but things were not working out, so I had no choice than to look around for help, I went into search of spell caster to help me bring him back to me with the help of spell and after searching I actually finalize to work with (maduraitemple@yahoo.com) in regards of my lover. after 3 days as Dr Madurai told that my lover will return. my lover returned in surprising way, I was chocked and was so happy I can't say how much I'm grateful, My lover not only came back to me, but has left his other girl and now has engaged me, we are getting married next month, I don't know what I would have done without this spell caster you can contact (maduraitemple@yahoo.com) him today . is spell is for a better life

I never knew people still have powers and make things happened this way. My name is Joy Samson . from USA. Before giving birth, my Husband left me for another woman for three months, ever since then my life was filled with pains and sorrow because he was the best thing that can ever happen to me in this world and I can’t imagine my child growing up without a father, this world became one cruel place for me as at that time. About two weeks ago, a friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of this great Dr ADAGBA that he can bring back lover within 48 hours, I laughed over it and said I am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she convinced me to make contact with Dr ADAGBA OF dagbaspiritualtemple@gmail.com or adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com, after all I had nothing to lose. The moment Dr ADAGBA replied my message, although I was doubtful because of i have not done this before but I felt hope. I got a call from my husband 2 days after contacting Dr ADAGBA, my husband wanted to come back home and he was filled with regrets for leaving me and the child. Surprisingly, that was his first call for over 9 months and he was all sorry and kept apologizing. I was filled with joy and happy heart. I still can't believe it, because it’s highly unbelievable it’s just too real to be true but that’s it. Thank you Dr for bringing back my lover.
