Gift Of Adoption helped me bring home my little girl! I am so grateful for their generosity! She has been home 6 weeks now and I cannot imagine life without her!

We are so thankful for the help we received from Gift of Adoption. We budgeted for one child and ended up adopting a second on short notice! The staff were very clear about the timeline from application to approval and made themselves readily available throughout the process. Getting funds released was painless as well. I'm so glad I applied, and I hope to partner again in the future!

When you are adopting a child, it can be an overwhelming experience! People tell you about grants, but you have no idea which ones to apply for, or how you will make it all work out. It is an incredibly vulnerable thing to send off information on your home study and ask people who don't even know you to give money so you can bring your child home! Gift of Adoption handled this process so professionally and courteously! And above all, they granted us money! Of all the myriad of grants to which we applied, they were the only ones who awarded us. It has been such a blessing, as it literally will pay the orphanage fee that we would not have been able to pay without it! The staff in emails have been so nice and genuinely seem to care about our adoption, which also goes a long way! We are so blessed that people give to this nonprofit, and that they have in turn given to us! Our beautiful and perfect son will be coming home in three weeks, thanks to Gift of Adoption!!

I was hesitant to apply for a grant that had an application fee. However, at the advice of our agency, we did apply for a grant from Gift of Adoption, and they were amazing!!! They were so quick to reply and to help us meet our need in bringing our boys home. THANK YOU, Gift of Adoption for making the process painless and worth our time to apply!

Having adopted internationally twice, the first for a sibling set of three older children and the second time for one older child I have applied to my share of charities. Gift of Adoption was by far the easiest to apply for and the friendliest and easiest to deal with throughout the process and in funding. Any adoption requires immense amount of paperwork, international also adds in dealing with immigration and their appointments and paperwork. It's crazy. What is even more crazy is a charity requiring 15-27 pages of paperwork to participate. I actually found a charity that required a 17 page application for a $500 grant. They wanted information that even my homestudy didn't require. Adoptive parents are already stretching themselves in so many ways it can be so frustrating/discouraging to discover the requirements to get help. I so appreciate that GOA so obviously wanted to help and wasn't going to require me to do a crazy amount of paperwork to get that help. I highly recommend GOA and am so grateful they helped up bring home our daughter. She is a blessing and is fitting in and learning what it means to be in a family and be loved.

Gift of Adoption is an awesome organization with awesome people. They are very efficient. They will go out of their way to assist you with your adoption. Even if grant funding is not available at the headquarters they will reach out to the closest chapter to your geographical location to see if they can assist.

Thank you for all you do! keep up the great work.

Gift of Adoption did so much to help us bring out daughter home. Without the kindness and generosity of the donors of Gift of Adoption our Leah may not have made it home. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

GoA was such an incredible experience for us! As first time parents, the adoption world was brand new to us, and after experiencing our own version of the roller coaster, we were so excited to bring home our baby girl. At the same time we had lost thousands of dollars to scams and disruptions throughout our journey, and so having a safe, thorough, and smooth organization to apply to made us feel safe and that our finalization was possible.

We applied for multiple upon multiple grants and Gift of Adoption is the only one that had mercy on us. We adopted our precious two under two with very little notice and were not prepared as we would have been if it had been the predicted 18 months. We will never forget the kindness and generosity shown to us by the Gift of Adoption. We look forward to the day we can return the favor.

Gift of Adoptions grants us $3,000 to help us pay for our adoption. Our Birth mom was a drug user and had already had our daughter when we met the birth mom. Our daughter, because of the Lord alone, is completely healthy and the happiest baby in the world. She is our biggest blessing and we thank the Lord for maker her for us!

We are so grateful that we were considered for a grant. We were very ready to accept, until our adoption disrupted sadly. However the organization was super genuine and kind and asked us to resubmit once matched again. We definitely will and pray we get selected again in order to help us as we lost so much during the first 2 disruptions that occurred within months of each other. I'm thankful for an opportunity to apply and be offered to resubmit. They are a great foundation.

We are so thankful for Gift of Adoption Fund! We were getting ready to finish up our adoption and still had a large amount of travel expenses to cover in order to go pick up our children. Gift of Adoption Fund helped us in a huge way and their generous gift helped us be able to cover our remaining expenses! We are so grateful for them partnering with us to bring our two kids home!

Thank you so much for the incredible generosity you have displayed. It has been a tremendous blessing and help for us and bringing our son home, and every day we reap the benefits of your generosity as Calvin learns new things and brings joy to so many people in our lives, at our church, and in our neighborhood.

Our entire experience with gift of adoption was a wonderful one. You all were incredibly gracious, and it's beautiful to see how much you care about helping those who need a forever family.

Our experience so far has been wonderful! The forms were not difficult to fill out. The responses and communications from Gift of Adoption have kept us informed of the process at each step along the way. The gift that was then awarded to us literally shocked us by it's generosity! We are involved in an adoption social community that are equally overjoyed at the results and many that we know who are in the process of adoption also plan to reach out to Gift of Adoption.

Thank You So Much and May God Bless You All,

Scott & Ellen Faulkner

This is an amazing charity with a heart for adoption! We have received two grants from this organization for our two adoptions of siblings in 2017 and 2018. Amelia and Sam are precious little children who deserve a family and a home that is safe and loving. We are grateful to have them as part of our family forever. Gift of Adoption has helped us make that dream a reality. From the depth of our hearts, THANK YOU!

The Gift of Adoption staff were awesome and did everything they could to help us through our process even if it was things that was not directly related to the grant. They were awesome and helped in many ways. There are an amazing group.
