Adopting special needs children

Bethany special needs

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Everyone needs a place to belong, and that place for 15 year old Will is with Phyllis and Dirk Bakhuyzen. The couple adopted Will nearly seven years ago through Bethany Christian Services. They were empty-nesters,  but their son encouraged them after finding Will’s picture in the Bethany LifeLines publication.

Will has special needs, he has Downs Syndrome. He has difficulty with speech, something the Bakhuyzen’s are working on now.  Will attends Byron Center High School and is a very active teenager.
