What are some tips for adopting a "special needs" child?

Special Needs Adoption

For parents out there who are bemoaning the fact that
there are no children in the US to adopt and foreign
adoption is too expensive, why not consider special
needs adoption?

Special needs does not always mean "handicapped". A
child with a special need can be an older child or a
sibling group. Did you realize that boys are
considered less adoptable than girls? There are
many "special" children available for adoption.
Some may be severely disabled, but some are almost
"normal". In my state special needs adoptions are
free. The state pays all adoption fees. In some
cases an adoption subsidy is available to help care
for the children. Some also qualify for public aide
coverage.
