Children awaiting adoption with a rare disease may go untreated or receive minimal treatment. If they go unplaced, they may face life in a long-term care facility, or nursing home. Gift of Adoption is a nonprofit that provides adoption assistance grants to help vulnerable children find a permanent home and the chance to thrive. We spoke to Pam Devereux, CEO of Gift of Adoption, about the cost of adoption, how her organization works, and the need it is seeking to address.
