Reviews for Gift of Adoption Fund Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Gift of adoption is a fantastic non-profit. They helped us in adopting our second child. Not only did they help with financial assistance to help complete her adoption, but they also sent a long a gift basket full of handmade items and notes of encouragement and support. They were very kind along every step of the process.

They are a fantastic group who has a commitment to helping families afford the very costly process of adoption.

Gift of Adoption was instrumental in helping us fund our adoption from China. We have been home for almost one month with our newest daughter, and we are so grateful for the assistance that we received to be able to complete her adoption!

We are extremely grateful to Gift of Adoption. They went above and beyond to help us with our grant. We actually applied on a Wednesday afternoon and by Friday it was approved. All staff members went the extra mile , while providing outstanding customer service. They expedited our grant due to the urgency of our adoption process at the time. GOA played a huge role in helping us bring our baby home. Our son David is a healthy, happy 6 months old baby boy. We will be forever grateful. Words can not express how much this organization means to us. Thank you for all that you do helping families bringing children to their forever homes.

Gift of Adoption came through with a grant for us at the tail end of our adoption and helped us to get the final $'s needed to travel on our 2nd trip to bring our girls home. It was a very generous grant and it allowed us to finalize our international adoption without taking out hefty loans. Thank you so much Gift of Adoption! Keep on helping kids!

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.

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
