The application process is very straightforward and the communication is excellent. You get an e-mail just to tell you your application has arrived! Don't allow the application fee to scare you off. We had a wonderful experience with Gift of Adoption, and they have been an incredible blessing to our family!
We received a grant through Gift of Adoption after a failed match and it was so exciting! We were especially thrilled to be working with a grant that had the same heart we do-- keeping siblings together and keeping babies from entering the foster system.
Gift of Adoption assisted us financially when we were blessed with an opportunity to adopt a precious baby girl out of the blue. Application process was very easy and the staff was very helpful. Fast turnaround time helped keep us calm during the swift transition. I will definitely be recommending friends who need assistance with adoption to reach out to Gift of Adoption.
Gift of Adoption Fund had been a complete miracle in our life! Our little boy was placed with us so quickly and so unexpectedly, we had no idea how we were going to cover the cost let alone come up with the money quickly. Gift of Adoption lifted a huge weight off our shoulders and answered our prayers. We were able to more fully focus on our son and all his medical conditions. Just to give you an idea of how desperate we were for a miracle, when we received the email from GOA and the amount they awarded us, my husband and I both cried tears of JOY, we couldn't believe the immense generosity and gift they have given us! GOA is quite AMAZING! We are forever grateful.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gift of Adoption Fund! Through their financial assistance, we were able to finally have the child that we longed for. They made the application process fair but not too challenging and were happy to answer any questions we had along the way. They are working hard towards such an important mission - helping to create new families through adoption.
We loved working with GOA! We were chosen by our daughter’s birth mother very close to her due date. GOA was able to expedite our grant request and helped us fund the last portion of what we needed to bring our daughter home. They were easy to communicate with, quick to respond, and truly have a heart for the children and families they are helping!
My husband and I are so grateful to Gift of Adoption Fund for helping us bring our 15 year old daughter home from Colombia this past February. We were on the verge of traveling to bring her home and still had a decent chunk of money due. That's when Gift of Adoption Fund stepped in and really helped us. They made the transaction smooth and easy. We will recommend them to every adopting family we know!
Wow! Gift of Adoption blessed our family so immensely when we adopted our daughter. What a gift it was to receive a grant in our time of need. It greatly decreased our financial stress and allowed us to truly enjoy our daughter's adoption process without the woes of where the money would come from. GOA worked swiftly and effectively and we always had the most incredible communication with their staff. They were attentive to every detail of our particular situation and provided us with so much support and love. Thank you GOA!!
They have had wonderful communication throughout the process and have been a great help to our family. We wouldn’t be able to bring our twin girls home without the help of Gift of Adoption funds to finishe up the process.
We embarked on the adventure of international adoption with the leading of the Lord....and with no finance to fund it! We were trusting God to bring it in. And He did! Gift of Adoption was part of that answer to prayer. They were kind, kept us up to date and were faithful to follow through on what needed to happen. Thank-you so much!
We love working with Gift of Adoption Fund! We would never have been able to bring our family together without their assistance. Beyond this, their generosity and care for our family went above and beyond just a charity. They cared for us--our family and our son.
Gift of Adoption helped make our adoption possible! They were able to award us a grant that allowed us to make our first baby girl part of our forever family. The application process was straightforward, we had great communication from GOA every step of the way, and the payment of their grant went straight to our agency. It was such a blessing to have the extra help and such a supportive group helping us on our journey.
Gift of Adoption helped our family finalize the adoption of our beautiful son, Oliver Joseph, which allowed us to focus our resources on Oliver's delicate health and medical needs early in life. This was so critical to us, as Oliver was born nearly 2 months premature and was recovering from a surgery to correct a birth defect. Becoming Oliver's forever family and giving him all the love and TLC that he needed were our main priorities. Because of the Gift, we never lost sight of that. Thank you Gift of Adoption! You're amazing!
Gift of Adoption is truly a wonderful nonprofit organization, with the heart and passion for reaching out to join children in desperate need with the loving care of a family. There are so many families with a desire to adopt, and so many more children simply waiting for a family to call their own, and the sad reality is that the financial barrier to adopt is often one that many families cannot overcome. However, Gift of Adoption provides resources and support to help families shoulder this heavy financial burden, and the support they provide enables families to adopt. In our case, one of the children we were adopting was in a crucial time of life, being prepared to be transferred from an infant 'baby house' to an adult institution, where he would be placed in an environment with other adults, an environment sadly riddled with physical, verbal, emotional, and sexual abuse. Gift of Adoption's support allowed us to raise the last of the funds necessary to complete the process, and I am thrilled to say that we will be bringing the child home later this month, just months before he would have been placed in an adult institution! We cannot say enough about how this organization helped us through our adoption process. They are truly a blessing.
Gift of Adoption has been a life saver! I accepted a foster placement, as a single parent, and when parental rights were terminated and I was given the option to adopt, I was not financially prepared for the lawyer fees. Gift of Adoption has made it possible for me to adopt my little girl! I don't have the words to properly express my gratitude.
Gift of Adoption helped us bring our little girl home! They were wonderful to work with. Everyone was friendly and they provided us a much needed grant to help close the gap on the final adoption expenses. I can't say enough positive things about this organization. I highly recommend GoA to anyone that is adopting.
We have much gratitude to the Gift of Adoption team that awarded us a grant to complete the adoption of our 5 year old daugther. Throughout the process of application and disbursement of the award they were straightfoward, clear, timely in communication, and most of all kind. They truly have hearts for children and families. We would highly recommend them and have the utmost respect for their mission and work.
Gift of Adoption was instrumental in helping my family complete the adoption of our five-month-old son. They have been helpful and proactive in communicating and making sure we were able to complete all pieces of the application. The costs of most adoptions are enormous, and ours was no exception. The funds we applied for and received allowed us to bring our son home.
Because of the kindness of this supportive foundation we are able to adopt all three of the children that have been placed in our care . They are siblings . Now they will not be separated and put into different homes any more . Thank you for helping us be a forever family.
There are so many expenses that come up with adoption. It is a blessing to both adoptive families and children in need of forever families to know that there are non-profits whose mission is to help lighten the burden. Thank you Gift of Adoption Fund!
