I am so thankful to Gift of Adoption for the role they played in helping me bring my daughter home this past July. My sweet little girl was an older child (age 7) that had been listed over and over again on waiting list after waiting list. Her severe facial deformities made her chances of being adopted very slim, but fortunately I had adopted another child with the same problems and knew what could be done to give her a more normal appearance. Gift of Adoption helped me when unexpected medical costs for another child deleted the remaining funds I had scrimped together to complete my adoption. I felt frantic knowing I had 90% of the fees, etc. paid but lacked just enough to not be able to go get her. I cannot truly describe the joy and relief I felt when I received the email telling me that I had received a grant. My daughter was coming home! It is truly because of Gift of Adoption that I am witnessing now a precious little girl laughing and singing with her sibling knowing she is loved.

As a volunteer and donor, I am always impressed at the heart that Gift of Adoption has for kids and their new families. It is an amazing group of people committed to giving kids a permanent home and ensuring that money isn't in the way. Money is spent so carefully. Need to get high-profile folks to recognize how significant it can be to a child to be adopted.

As an adoption attorney for 30 years, I know first hand the struggles that adoptive families face to finance their adoption goals. Money should not stand in the way of securing a permanent home for a child and Gift of Adoption ensures that is not the case. Gift of Adoption is a phenomenal, grassroots organization with a big heart, low overhead, high accountability and the giver of many blessings. I wholeheartedly endorse the, Jeanne Trudeau Tate
