Healthy Preschoolers in China SWIs?
As I look at children on all the lists and advocacy sites, I wondered what happened to the "healthy" children ages 3-10, who used to be the Waiting Children. I asked a person who is with one of the charity organizations in China and she said that in the last four orphanages she's visited, there aren't any more "healthy" children. She said that they are the ones that have been adopted during the past several years. What she said she sees the most now are 80% boys with special needs and the rest girls with special needs.
This is consistant with what I have been seeing on the current Shared List of children. The majority of them are boys.
