Brittany's hope helped us make the adoption of our daughter possible through a grant that they offered. The grant was a surprise to us and a huge blessing as we were worried about how we could afford another adoption. We have six children, three of which are adopted internationally. Our daughter has special needs and we were unsure of the amount of medical care that she would require once home. Brittany's Hope Foundation is blessing families and children all over the world by the work that they are doing. Thank you!

Brittany's Hope Foundation has touched so many special needs children and their families. One such child is Angelina (soon to be a ballerina) who was born in China with such weak lttle legs they could barely support her body. This didn't keep Angelina from beanding down and carrying for the children younger than herself. Daily she has waited to get news of a forever family. Because of Brittany's Hope amazing "play it forward" grants Angelina WILL get a chance to have a family and dance.

I've worked with both grant families and Brittany's Hope directly. Their heart for children with the smallest voices is so strong it truly is amazing.

When we began the adoption process, we did not set out to adopt a special needs child. Some time after starting the paperwork, we decided to just look at the photolistings from our agency. Our son's photo was the first one we saw. I wish I could say it was love at first sight, but it wasn't. The medical issues listed for him were intimidating. Months after we first saw his photo, we decided to request his file. We determined that we could handle his medical needs, but were concerned about the expense involved in the adoption and then in caring for our new son. It was an answer to prayer that the next day that he was awarded an adoption grant. This grant enabled us to bring our son home with our financial worries eliminated. That's how we came to know Brittany's Hope. Since our son was a grant recipient, we have come to know more about the organization and the many services they provide to the neediest among us. This organization has truly blessed us.

Our experience with the Brittany's Hope Foundation has been wonderful! Without their help we would not have been able to fund the adoption of our daughter from China. Their staff is friendly, helpful and always prompt in returning requested information. They encourage you to make contact frequently. We liked how grants are no longer case specific to certain children. We feel this opens up opportunity for more families to adopt. Our family has been blessed with the opportunity to having worked with Brittany's Hope and maybe in the future we will be able to adopt again!

We have applied for several grants. Many agencies require A LOT of paperwork and hoops to jump through even to apply. We spent upwards of 2-3 hours just on one application! This was not the case with BHF. They got the "necessary" information. It just seems that they have their act together.

I honestly do not have any constructive criticism. As stated above, they are friendly and encourage frequent contact. BHF is well structured and maintains, in our opinion, a well run organization.

As an adoptee and local resident of the Elizabethtown area, I was thrilled to learn of an organization that is a reputable, international granting foundation for children all over the world. The foundation enables families from across the country to adopt children with special needs. It is also a wonderful philanthropic organization providing stability to many children in diverse countries. We are fortunate to have them in Central Pennsylvania.

Brittany's Hope aided us in adopting our son from China who has spina bifida- he was four years old when we adopted him. Without their help and encouragement the cost of adoption would have been intimidating. Their up-front grants for children with special needs provide hope for these children to find families and a place to call home. We will forever be grateful to Brittany's Hope for their help and individualized attention.

have them continue to focus their attention only on special needs children and not broaden to other areas. They fulfill a unique niche which is very much needed.

I am a member of non-profit affiliate agency who works together with Brittany's Hope to provide grants for many qualified adoptive families who have hearts for special needs adoptions. I amazed at the warmth and professionalism of the staff that I work with. Brittany's Hope Seedling Gift program is an amazing grant program that utilizes adoption agency, recipient families and grant agency, to work together to achieve one goal - reuniting orphaned children with their forever families. What a joy and privilege it is to serve together with Brittany's Hope in achieving this goal.

In June, 2010, we arrived home from Russia with our beautiful daughter. When we first started the adoption process, we heard about our daughter through Brittany's Hope. Because of her age and medical needs, they had offered a very generous grant to help with expenses. Once we saw her picture, we couldn't get her out of our minds. This little girl was for us.
Working with Brittany's Hope was such a wonderful experience. 100% of the donations received goes to help children worldwide. They have feeding programs, provide cribs to orphanages, provide grants to children with special needs, and many other programs.
We are very grateful for their help as a recipient family. We are also grateful for their generous help to other families and kids worldwide. Their staff is very professional, accessible and "hands-on". We can't say enough good about them.

In October of 2010 we began the process to adopt our son from Uganda. As I am sure most everyone knows...adoption is expensive. Brittany's Hope offered us a grant to ease the cost of adopting our son from Uganda. They were so easy to work with and so encouraging! We are so thankful for this organization and their commitment to see children brought home to families! They were a blessing to our family!

In November 2009, we adopted our son from South Korea. Matthew was considered a waiting child. While it seems that all children who have yet to be adopted are “waiting”, what this really means is that he had been eligible for adoption for a long time (in his case, he had been waiting for about 2 years). However because of a special need, a family had not yet come forward to adopt him.

We were constantly amazed by the generosity of others during our adoption process. One of the miracles we experienced was a large grant we received from Brittany’s Hope that helped cover some of our adoption expenses. Brittany’s Hope knew about Matthew long before we had ever laid eyes on him. They identified Matthew as a child who had waited way too long to find his family. In South Korea, when a child reaches a certain age without being adopted, they are at risk of being permanently placed in an orphanage. Knowing how long his wait had already been and that he couldn’t afford to wait much longer, Brittany’s Hope placed a $5000 grant on Matthew to help alleviate the costs of bringing him home. While this grant was not the reason we chose to adopt Matthew, it was an amazing blessing, and it gave us such peace of mind as we worked through the process.

Brittany’s Hope works miracles like this every day for children who wait all over the world.
