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.

We still needed to raise the last bit of money for our adoption agency fees to allow us to adopt our little girl who was placed into our home in January 2019. Gift of Adoption generously provided the exact amount needed to help cover the final adoption expenses. We are eternally grateful for this organization and the vital part they have in our adoption story!

We are so very thankful to Gift of Adoption for helping to bring our sweet boy home. Our process was quicker than we expected and so it was hard to keep up financially and receiving the generous grant from GOA was vital to us being able to travel to India as soon as possible and be united with our son. I am so thankful for their heart for vulnerable children around the world and their commitment to partner with families to make the staggering number of orphans decrease one child at a time.

Gift of Adoption allowed us to bring our precious 12-year-old daughter home from Costa Rica. Without their support, this would have not been possible. We thank God and GOF with all of our hearts! ❤️

Gift of adoption was absolutely essential to helping us adopt our son Rowan. They are so thoughtful with their application process and we appreciated how much communication we received from them. We felt very supported from GOA even more than the financial help we were given--they truly care about the children they are helping! We are so thankful for the gift they gave to us and for caring for Rowan and our entire family throughout this process.

My husband and I have been married for eleven years, but even when we were dating, we discussed our dreams and desires for a family, and adoption was something God had placed on both of our hearts. We were selected by an expectant mother in late December 2018. Our son was born five weeks early on January 31, 2019. After a short NICU stay, we brought him home February 5, 2019, and his adoption finalization hearing was May 30, 2019. Our hearts are overflowing with love and joy.
I cannot say enough about Gift of Adoption (GOA) and its grant application process. The communication throughout was fantastic. When we initially applied, we had not been selected by an expectant mother, so instead of denying our application, GOA simply delayed reviewing it - for which we were so grateful! Then, after we experienced a heartbreaking failed adoption, GOA simply put our application back into circulation for review, and once we were selected, the committee decided to leave our grant in place! (I cried when we read the email!) There are not enough words to express our gratitude to Gift of Adoption.

Fantastic organization, helped us tremendously with our adoption grant request. Very easy to contact, they were always quick to respond and we will pay it forward to help fund their organization so they can continue to assist couples looking to adopt moving forward.

We had no idea where we would get the money to adopt. All we knew was that God wanted us to do it. God was faithful as always in providing what we needed, and a big part of that came through GOAF. Thank you so much.

Gift of Adoption is incredible. Adoption can feel so out of reach for a few reasons but with Gift of Adoptions help we were able to start a family. We are so grateful and know that they played a role in helping us begin our lives as parents to our baby boy.

Gift of Adoption Fund is amazing! In June, my husband and I received notification that we were awarded a grant, the amount, and a detailed email with exactly what we needed to do in order to receive the funds. At birth, our birthmother changed her mind and our adoption was disrupted. When I notified Gift of Adoption of the disruption they were so nice and professional. They explained exactly what I needed to do once we get re-matched and it sounds just as easy and organized as the initial process.

Any family that goes through the adoption process has a story. Most stories are filled with many struggles and hardships. It isn't always an easiest road to take, but its worth it. The biggest hurdle for any family in the process is the financial difficulty it takes to go through the adoption process. Having great non-profits like Gift of Adoption is necessary to help couples grow their family. I can't thank Gift of Adoption fund enough for joining our journey to bring our beautiful twin girls home. Thank you Gift of Adoption!

Gift of Adoption awarded my husband and I a grant to help us adopt our sweet baby boy. It is so touching to be helped by people we have never met. The application process was clear, with helpful reminders, and the staff were compassionate. Having applications reviewed monthly (rather than quarterly like many grant organizations) was helpful since our match and placement happened quickly.

We applied for, and were awarded, a $3,500 grant through Gift of Adoption. It was an extensive grant application process - but it paid off and ended up being an incredible blessing in helping to cover the costs of bringing our son home from India. One week before we were due to pick up our son, Vivan, we found out he was in the ICU. We immediately flew to his side, and sadly he passed away. We spent the next 7 weeks in-country going through the entire adoption process all over again for our second son, Noah. This was a huge, unforeseen devastation and expense. Thanks to organizations and donors like GOA, we were able to cover all of the costs. Our son still came home! We will be forever grateful!

We are so incredibly thankful for Gift Of Adoption! Because of the generous grant they awarded us, we were able to finish the funding of our adoption and bring home 4 Ukrainian (teenage) siblings!

The adoption process can be very overwhelming, but being blessed with a grant from GOA helped encourage us and bring us to the 'finish line!'

Thank you GOA!

We adopted a 15 year old boy from Europe. Looking at the total cost of international adoption can seem impossible. But we trusted that if this was God’s will, he would make they way. Well he did!! And part of that way was through Gift of Adoption!!! This organization really does care about children finding families. They want to unload some of the financial burden to make it happen! Thanks to GOA, almost our entire last trip was covered to finalize our adoption!! We are SO very thankful to GOA for helping us bring our son home!! We highly recommend this nonprofit to anyone seeking assistance for adoption. Thank you GOA!!!❤️❤️❤️
