In many developing countries, children that are born with chronic medical conditions are placed in orphanages. With limited hope for care in these situations one of the best hopes for these children is to be adopted. In this month’s Ask The Expert episode, we visit with Shari Luckey, the Adoption Advocacy and Outreach Coordinator for the Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan. Shari not only has personal experience adopting a child with hemophilia from a developing country but also works with individuals around the country to help them navigate the challenge adoption system. We explore her personal journey through adoption and learn about what the overall adoption process looks like. We also touch on the unique challenges this presents when the adopted child has a chronic medical condition.

The management of inhibitors continues to be one of the greatest challenges facing researchers, clinicians, and patients with hemophilia. Thankfully we seem to have taken a giant step forward vis-a-vie the introduction of Hemlibra, the first and only subcutaneous treatment option for patients of all ages who have severe hemophilia A and inhibitors. But what exactly is this form of non-factor replacement therapy? How does it work? And what should patients and families impacted by hemophilia and inhibitors be thinking and asking their clinicians about? That’s what we’re here to discuss with this month’s guest, Dr. Guy Young.
