OFA is the most competent, caring, and professional group of people I have ever worked with. I have been so impressed with the quick, informative, and thoughtful responses to all of my questions and concerns during the adoption process. It is so inspiring that they are all volunteers! Wow!!! This organization is proof that just a handful of passionate and purposeful people really can change the world for the better.

We have donated to this wonderful organization on numerous occasions. Because of the great work of this dedicated group of volunteers we were able to add 2 precious grandchildren to our family. Our daughter and son-in-law worked with OFA to adopt 2 orphans last fall. OFA is amazing!!!! There were many hurdles and roadblocks but the OFA staff was able to help our kids overcome all the setbacks and bring their babies home. We can't say enough good things about this organization. What they do for orphans left behind in the Congo is truly amazing. They are the most worthy non-profit we have ever given money to.

I discovered OFA several months ago while researching international adoptions, and was so impressed with their efforts to support the orphans of DRC that I jumped at the chance to volunteer with them. They are one of the very few organizations that facilitate adoptions on a volunteer basis, and it demonstrates perfectly their heart for the orphans and their desire that every cent go to lifesaving formula, food, and medical care for the orphans left behind.

Now, I feel blessed to call OFA the facilitator for the adoption of our son from DRC. The director and volunteer staff are extremely thorough, honest, and helpful, with huge hearts and pure motives. They are truly making a difference in the Congo, and I'm proud to be a part of it.

OFA has been extremely knowledgable, helpful, and thorough throughout our adoption process, and is responsible for removing our soon-to-be son from a life-threatening living situation, for which we are eternally grateful!

OFA has been helping facilitate the adoption of my child for the past 10 months. During that time I've been in contact with a few of the volunteers and each has been wonderful. They genuinely care about the children of Congo and their well being. I feel proud to be associated with them. They set realistic expectations instead of promising the world and I know that with their continued help we will be able to bring our daughter home very soon.

OFA is an all-volunteer organization that cares for orphans in the Democratic Republic of Congo. They have facilitated almost one hundred adoptions from DRC as a way to raise awareness of the needs of the children there. OFA has provided the orphans food, medical care, education and many other necessities for a better life. We adopted our son last year with the help of OFA. He is such a blessing to our family, and our experience with this organization has opened up our hearts to the beautiful people in the DRC. We know that because of Our Family Adoptions, many lives are forever changed.

OFA has been facilitating the adoption of our second son from Africa. They have been so hardworking and helpful, and we know that they are working because they care so much about helping orphans. They do more than assist adoptions- they are working to improve the lives of all the children they come in contact with- whether those children will find homes in the US or not. We have so much respect for their efforts.

OFA facilitated the adoption of our third son. This was our third adoption in Africa. The difference between this adoption and our previous adoptions is the opportunity and passion imparted to stay involved and care for the children we left behind. As travelers we were encouraged to carry as little personal items as possible. We loaded our bags with baby formula and clothing for the children in the orphanages. My heart breaks daily for those kids and I am so thankful for the opportunity to work now as a volunteer for this organization--hopefully raising funds for OFA for many years to come and returning to DRC. This is an amazing group of tireless volunteers shepherding nervous families through the miraculous experience of adoption--and then on to the role as advocate and volunteer.

OFA is an amazing organization. My husband and I adopted a son and a daughter with OFA's help. All of the volunteers we worked with were professional, compassionate, prompt, and willing to go way above and beyond to help us. I cannot say enough positive things about OFA. I am committed to doing all I can to help OFA care for the orphans left behind in Congo. They are doing amazing work and I want to be part of it!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the joy and beauty in my children's eyes. Without the help of OFA, we wouldn't have our son and our daughter. I cannot imagine my life without them. I am forever grateful to OFA. I was also blessed to be able to see OFA's work firsthand while in Congo. I visited orphanages, took donations of books, food, clothing, and infant formula. I saw children getting medical care. I know that lives are forever changed because of OFA's work.

My wife and I adopted our son through OFA back in November and are in the process of adopting our daughter as well. We have also run a formula drive that raised over 100lbs of powder formula for the orphanages in Kinshasa, helped to provide and cover educational materials for older children, and contributed to the purchase of beans, rice, and fish to another orphanage. We have been so blessed to be a part of OFA over the past year and look forward to working with them for many years to come.
