The Gift of Adoption fund helped us to bring home our beautiful daughter, Mira. She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and had open heart surgery at three days old. She had proven to be a fighter despite her serious medical condition! She's a happy baby and is cherished by her entire family and community. We're so proud to be her parents!

Gift of Adoption Fund, Inc. is one of the most amazing grant organizations around. Their big heart and willingness to help orphans has made all of the difference in the lives of hundreds of children, and their families. They are there to help families bring their adoptive children home in that last final stretch, where money is usually the most stressful. I was so blessed to be a grant recipient. I am forever grateful to gift of adoption for helping me complete my family.

It is no secret that adoption is costly. It takes money, time, and most importantly patience. We were I'm the final stretch to finalize our adoption of our daughter when we received the news that we had been chosen to receive help from Gift of Adoption. This help lead us to the financial finish line. We would have found a way to get there, but this gift gave us the opportunity to stop waiting. That is amazing. It was not only a financial gift but one that shortened our time which is just as valuable. Our daughter is our life. Thank you GOA.

Without the help of Gift of Adoption, we would not have been able to complete our adoption. Words can not express how thankful we are to them. They were also so helpful and quick to respond to questions that we had. We would recommend this to everyone who is trying to adopt.

Gift of adoption helped us tremendously in helping us get the final amount we needed to bring our daughter home this year in June. She is blind with some light perception and has recently started saying mama! She is thriving and wonderful and without grant organizations like this, international adoption would not have even been a possibility for our family! We cannot thank them enough for their help and support!

GOA helped us add not one, but two beautiful girls to our family! We couldn't have completed either international adoption without their generous grant. Adoption can be so costly and I love telling others how awesome grant organizations are in helping with the financial burden of adoption. Thank you GOA for our grants, for the ease of communication and swift payment to our agency.

We really appreciate the financial help we received through " Gift of Adoption". Adopting our 12 year old daughter from Mexico had us living in Mexico for 10 months without being able to work. It was a faith journey for us and getting funds to help with those last expenses was a huge blessing! We are finally home and are enjoying seeing her enjoy family life. Every child deserves a family.

My grant from GOA was so helpful during my domestic adoption process as a single mom, for I ended up with twins, only finding out a month before they were due! (Upon initial match, only a singleton had been "found" during the first ultrasound!) It was a relief to know that expenses could be mostly covered for staying in another city while my preemie girls were gaining weight in the NICU for 4 weeks, before we could get the ICPC paperwork going and finally head home! My girls are almost 8 mos old now and are thriving, and our adoption was finalized in August. I'm so grateful to Gift of Adoption for their help!

Gift of Adoption was an answer to prayer. They were kind, communicative, and prompt with everything. They helped me bring my son home in a timeframe much quicker than originally calculated. Without them, my adoption would not been near as smooth. Thank you so much Gift of Adoption.

Our grant from Gift of Adoption was critical to the successful completion of the adoption of our two newest family members. Without their assistance, our efforts would have been very delayed at best. Their gift to our cause was used to cover the entire cost of airfare for four on our plane trip home. Their timing was perfect and the transaction was smooth. We are extremely grateful to Gift of Adoption for partnering with us and the role they played in our adoption.

Our Gift of Adoption grant was a huge help in paying a portion of travel expenses to go pick up our daughter. The process of applying for the grant was straight forward. They notified us of our approval timely. They distributed funds when they were needed. We are extremely grateful to Gift of Adoption for the part they played in our adoption.

We started our journey through adoption without needing any assistance. We had enough money (by chance) to adopt our first child! We were ecstatic! Everything seemed to be going great! Unfortunately, once we rounded the corner to the end of the process (after birth) the birth mother changed her mind. We were beyond devastated. Not only because we were hoping to come home with a little girl, but now we no longer had that money to pay for another adoption. Thankfully, we were matched with another birth mother and we began the long journey of raising money to afford this new adoption journey. With the help of fundraisers, family. loans, and extra jobs we did not have enough! Luckily, we were accepted as a recipient of a 'Gift of Adoption' grant. There are no words to describe the gratitude we have for the organization. Without their help we would not know what it would be like to be parents to the best little girl in the world (now 9 months old). We are so thankful for the process and people when working with the organization! Thank you, Gift of Adoption! You made us a family!

I recently adopted a 3-year old boy from Ethiopia. Gift of Adoption helped cover my travel costs, which was SO HELPFUL after the expense of international adoption. I am so grateful for this organization!!

We were near the end of our process to adopt our fourth child from China. Gift of Adoption listened to us carefully, and believed us when we told of our financial need. Without the grant that they awarded us, we would have had to spend our retirement, as we had no other options. They treated us with great compassion and respect. We have been home for 4 months with our daughter's best friend from the orphanage. She recently turned 14, which would have made her ineligible for adoption and without a family forever. Thank you, Gift of Adoption!

I could write a million words in my review of Gift of Adoption and it STILL wouldn't be enough to express just how truly blessed we are to have been a recipient of one of their awards last year. We will never stop saying our prayers of thanksgiving for our grant. With their help, we brought our daughter home and became a family!
