No but the process is the same...choose the avenue of adoption...waiting foster child from your state, private adoption, through an agency or international adoption such as Reeses Rainbow (google for online listing)...
once you decide the avenue you will need to have a homestudy done, gather your money if private, if foster the state pays for almost everything and for international adoption there are some grants available for special needs kids.
Looks like you got the help you needed. :)

Not really. But I guess it just depends on whom you'r going to adopt. I adopted a relative and he is doing fine! :D

Quoting HousewifeNina:Do you mean adopting a SN child from the system of private adoption of a baby who is SN?
If the former is your plan, each state is different. Depending on your state, you could adopt for free or end up needing an atty(but right now there are tax returns for SN adoptions AND for no SN but adoption costs to 10000).
Check with your local parish or state.
If you mean the latter, you absolutely need to pay atty fees.
