    Dear Dawn, I am constantly amazed at the amount of information you have amassed and have available on your website. It is a wonderful resource for adoptive families and adoption professionals. As a social worker for one of your sponsoring agencies, I have recently become aware of online courses you have available for prospective adoptive parents. One of the recommended courses for Hague home studies is a course related to medical issues in adopted children. You do have a wonderful course related to health issues, interview with Dr. Jane Aronson, however it seems to deal primarily with children from Eastern Europe. I would really appreciate a course that is more appropriate for children coming from Haiti, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, etc. where the focus might be more on effects of malnutrition, lack of pre and post natal medical care, common intestinal and skin conditions, environmental toxins, etc. Thanks, June Lewis, LCSW
