Reviews for Gift Of Adoption Fund Inc
Gift of Adoption Fund Inc...helped us become a family! As an active duty, enlisted military family, we knew that the finances needed for adoption could be prohibitive to the successful outcome we desired. Gift of Adoption provided the "home stretch" for us and we were able to give a forever home and family to bi-racial siblings. Four years later, Gift of Adoption gave a repeat performance and another sibling was brought home. Our high praise for GOAF is gloriously effusive...and for good reason. The staff is knowledgeable and professional but also warm, responsive and encouraging. We felt like they truly celebrated with us the completion of our adoptions and the formation of our family. Without their support, finalizing our adoptions would have created an incredible, if not impossible, strain on our resources. From the application process, to the award decisions, to the actual check receipt, to follow up - Gift of Adoption Fund Inc is an invaluable companion to the adoption journey.
We applied for an adoption grant through Gift of Adoption. They have followed up with us very well and even though our adoption has take three years to complete stuck with us and provided a very significant and helpful grant to help see our two daughters come home and be part of our family! I would highly recommend that any planning to adopt would seek them out for funding help.
I just adopted 2 nephews of mine 10 & 13 years old , who are orphans and it was really very hard to complete the adoption because of insuficent funds but Gift of adoption came through for us and gave me a gift to assist with my completion of adoption and i and the boys are for ever Greatfull for all the help we got.

The staff at Gift of Adoption were excellent in communicating with us every step of the way as we went through the process of applying for an adoption grant. They were very professional and yet very warm and inviting as they kept in touch with us. We think they are awesome and their work is invaluable for children!
The process for the GOA grant was relatively easy. They did not make us pay the application fee when we had to reapply after our first adoption fell through. They initially had some trouble communicating, but were able to set that right. They are very timely and business professional. We received a $3,000 grant for our domestic adoption to cover attorney fees and were overall satisfied with their process and reward.
Gift of Adoption was very thorough and stayed informed with our adoption progress. They filled a very unique need by awarding us a grant at the very end of our journey after we had exhausted all other options. We were very impressed with their careful management of their funds. Y. family
Words cannot express the appreciation and the kindness and generosity of Gift of Adoption. Our daughter would not be with us in this country today without that grant coming through. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you always.
GOA you are a godsend, such wonderful news that your grant to us will make our adoption dream a reality in just a few short weeks. Very prompt replies to our emails shows that this organization cares. You score an A+ with us. Thank you so much GOA
We were at our last stage of adoption fighting fiercely to bring our little girl out of a life of institutional living and into our loving family. We had exhausted all our financial resources and surrendered to the idea that we would have to take a loan out in order to bring our daughter home. Gift of Adoption swept in and saved us at just the right moment. Thanks to Gift of Adoption we are settling in as a family of six with out the financial burden a loan brings. Thank you, Gift of Adoption!
We applied for and have been approved for a grant through Gift of Adoption. It was quite a long process, but every aspect was straight-forward and someone was always there to respond within hours by email. This organization is literally putting families together through funding adoptions that may not have happened otherwise. We are so thankful we found out about this organization through our church.
Our experience with Gift of Adoption has been a wonderful blessing and we are so very appreciative of the generous support they offer to adoptive families like ours.
The application process was straight forward and the communication was always prompt and courteous. They told us exactly when the grant selection committee would review our application and we found out we had received the grant less than three days later.
We would highly recommend them to any prospective adoptive family who has significant financial challenges. They really do help change lives.
