National Down Syndrome Adoption Network
Our mission is to ensure that every child born with Down syndrome has the opportunity to grow up in a loving family.
All children benefit from the opportunity to grow up in a loving family, but not all birth families feel they are able to meet the needs of a child born with Down syndrome.
The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network provides information to birth families who may be seeking alternatives to parenting as they prepare for the arrival of their child. Making an adoption plan for a child with Down syndrome is a loving choice and can be the right choice for some families.
The NDSAN is also here to provide support to families who wish to adopt a child with Down syndrome. There are no fees for any of the services provided by the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network.
