We were pursuing an international sibling adoption of three children. We realized that we would need to seek grant assistance for our adoption journey, so we looked for a fund that wanted to help siblings stay together. Gift of Adoption was amazing in that they made the application process so simple! We were kept informed all along the way of the status of our application and were so thrilled when we were approved for a grant! It was so unexpected and amazing to have our grant come just at the right moment. We were stuck overseas for over three months trying to finish the adoption process and would never have been able to finish and come home with our beautiful children without the financial assistance we received from GOA. We are eternally grateful and will always be amazed that what we needed came at just the right time in our adoption process. Thank you GOA.
Gift of Adoption was great to work with. Thanks to their generosity, we were able to adopt four siblings from Ukraine in 2017 that otherwise would not have been adopted. We are so grateful to the Gift of Adoption team and all they did for us. They communicated with us regularly throughout the process and have been nothing but professional. I could not recommend GOA more for adoption grants.
Easy application process and wonderful communication throughout!
Thankful for all of the help in bringing home our baby girl!!!
Gift of Adoption was wonderful to work with and helped us reach our fundraising goals. Adoption can be expensive. Our family is so grateful for Gift of Adoption and the gift they provided to be able to bring our son home!
Gift Of Adoption was a huge blessing in our lives. We applied for an adoption grant to help with the fees of adoption. Alone, adoption fees are high, but our baby was born prematurely and we had a lot of unplanned medical expenses too. We applied for a grant and it was a huge blessing to us. They were great to work with and the disbursement was coordinated through our agency, and we had no problems at all. We couldn't be happier with our new little baby and Gift of Adoption helped make it possible. This is a wonderful organization that can help families grow in wonderful ways.
We received a grant to complete our adoption from India. The application process was well organized and we were informed every step of the way as to what our next step was, what to expect, etc. Good communication, transparent and effective company!
Very easy to work with and a pleasure to have their support. Five star Inc.
Beyond amazing! Cannot say enough kind words to fully express our gratitude toward Gift of Adoption. From the first moments they stood by our side financial, then continued to do so post adoption with community support, and even still by checking in via email. Truly an amazing organization with hearts of Gold. We were able to bring home our son from China thanks to their help!
We adopted two children at once, so the expense was almost double, as well our girls were aging out of the system. It took a lot of grants to accomplish the task and we had to do considerable fundraising. Gift of Adoption cared about our progress, our story, our path, and worked hard on our behalf. They care about the good they are doing, but about the people as well. Thank you so much, Gift of Adoption, we truly could not have done it without each and everyone's support.
Gift of Adoption helped us complete our family! They provided us with a grant to finish paying for our adoption. We are grateful for the wonderful work they are doing to help families afford the high cost of adoption. It was a huge relief for our family having help with our final payment.
Gift of Adoption helped us bring our son home. The process was long and the transition was difficult but having the financial help gave us the ability to focus on what our son needed rather than worrying about those details.
Here's photos of our family, a visit from cousins, at a banquet and a day of fishing. Thank you Gift of Adoption.
Our experience was amazing. This was a great help in getting us to China. The application was straightforward and smooth. Their communication regarding requirements were prompt and easy to follow. Thank you again Gift of Adoption!
Gift of Adoption has truly been a gift! The grant I received helped me adopt with very little debt. My son has been home 10 months now and I can’t imagine life without him!!!!
Gift of Adoption has been great and very helpful. Thank you for giving is this opportunity and assistance to bring Tatum our beautiful baby girl in our lives.
Gift of Adoption appropriately and generously met our family's need for completing an international adoption. Their gift to us in the final stage of adoption allowed for us to make necessary travels to receive our daughter as a family. Given our family's circumstances, we did not have another option, and we had to travel all together which increased expenses, but also increased the blessing of providing for our newly adopted daughter and our other children during the time of family adjustment.
Gift of Adoption (GOA) helped us cover last-minute, unexpected costs related to the adoption of our sweet daughter. While initially our family was not chosen as award recipients, we were encouraged to re-apply during the second grant cycle and that's when we learned we would be able to complete our adoption with the generous support of GOA.
The GOA staff were always friendly, professional and empathic during this stressful and emotional time. Communication was prompt and clear, and we were kept informed throughout the grant disbursement process. We recommend GOA to everyone on the path to adoption!
Our four children lost their parents in a tragic car accident on October 31, 2015. Their lives were turned upside down and they were moved several times. My husband and I knew God had a calling on our lives and it was to adopt our beautiful Grandchildren. Unfortunately, it was a contested adoption so we hired the best Attorney in Tampa knowing we could not afford to adopt four children. Thank God for Gift of Adoption. We are so very blessed they stepped up to help us secure our family together because we could not have done this without them. Our adoption finalized on our 22nd wedding anniversary! Talk about confirmation! Thank you Gift of Adoption!
My husband and I are in the process of adopting our four grandchildren whose parents died in an auto accident Halloween night 2015. We had no idea how we were going to afford an adoption of four children all at once but it was critically important we make it happen! Our kiddos desperately needed to belong to us and we needed to belong to them forever! We thank God for the grant we received from Gift of Adoption. There is no way we would have ever been able to do this without them! We are thrilled to report we are well on our way to being forever bonded together as a family! Thank you Gift of Adoption! You are an amazing blessing in all of our lives!
Amazing! Huge thank you! We have sent applications to a few different funds and only Gift of Adoption helped us. Financial help was very important for us at that moment. We were able to complete adoption of 2 children from Ukraine, 13 and 15 years old. In addition, a few weeks after arrival Gift of Adoption sent us a box with presents for our kids. Children were so surprised and happy! Thank you for everything: for easy and friendly communication, support, financial help and for the nice welcome gifts for our kids!
We just finished up our adoption of a seven year old boy from China. The whole adoption process (especially the financial side of it!) can be so very stressful. We applied for a grant near the end of the process after we exhausted all our fundraising sources. We had no clue as to where the remaining funds were going to come from. The news that we were rewarded a grant was beyond exciting and such an answer to prayer! The whole application process was quite easy and we were kept well informed during our wait. We would definitely recommend them to other families! Thank you!
Our family met a young man who was soon turning 16 and aging out of the foster care system in his Eastern European country. Time was of the essence as we had less than a year to raise funds, complete paperwork and travel to bring him home. Gift of Adoption was a critical part of our adoption journey as they helped us with final expenses, including airfare to travel to his country and bring him back to the USA. We will forever be thankful for how Gift of Adoption helped make our adoption possible! Their application process was straightforward and easy to complete. They relieved so much worry and stress from the end of our adoption journey!
We are so thankful for Gift of Adoption and their help in adopting our little girl! We felt blessed by the agency not just through the financial assistance but the personal touches. We received a gift basket from a staff member and a girl scout troop that was so heartfelt and unexpected! I'm not sure our adoption would have happened so quickly and efficiently without this gift and we are so thankful for it.
