Gift of Adoption helped us pay for our final flights to pick up our son Jhony from Ecuador! It was a great blessing to know we could pay that bill when we arrived home. The process was not complicated and the communication was always timely. Thank you Gift of Adoption for your support of adopting families. Joe and Leah

Gift of Adoption helped us during the final push of our adoption. We were so close to bringing home our daughter and needed a little bit more financial assistance to get us to the finish line. GOA helped us with the remaining money needed, and we now have the most beautiful baby girl at home. Adoption is an emotional journey without the added pressure of coming up with enough money to become parents. GOA helped alleviate anxiety and stress around financial piece, especially in the home stretch.

We are forever indebted to Gift of Adoption - without GOA, I don't know how we would have brought our daughter home.

Great response to our questions and concerns. We were matched quickly with a mother and as soon as we found out about they expedited our grant application. Very accommodating.

The grant we received from Gift of Adoption helped us with last minute (overwhelming!) adoption expenses that made our adoption possible. I was impressed by how they kept us "in the loop" throughout the grant process. Adoption is a difficult process that leaves you vulnerable and in need. I appreciated not only their incredible financial help, but their personally reaching out to us throughout the grant process so we knew our application was under consideration by real people. We weren't lost in the shuffle or a black hole or something. They seem to really have a heart for their mission.

Gift of Adoption gave us an adoption grant .. which was given at such a time in need. They have been so kind to work with and are top notch. Helping people adopt is such a joyous occasion but at the same time to jump all the financial hurdles is exhausting. They came in and gave our family the financial support we needed to bring your little girl home . Would never be able to thank them enough. The rating scale does not go high enough for them. Thank You Gift of Adoption.... from the Jarrett family !!!

Our family had been doing foster care for several years hoping to adopt through the system. The Lord, however had different plans for us. He was calling us to adopt an infant domestically. We were prepared to wait like all the other families. Again "he" had other plans for us.After being approved in August 2016 we waited 5 weeks before we were matched. This was fabulous news but had us worried out of minds that we would not be able to come up with the fees needed. We contacted Gift of Adoption with our application and again after we found out about our match. We were so surprised how quickly they were able to expedite our case to help make this dream a reality!

Gift of Adoption gave us a grant that made it possible to travel to Colombia and bring James home. He is our third adopted child. All three have disabilities, and the first two were very expensive. We could not have paid for another expensive adoption without help. Gift for Adoption kept tracking with our family for almost two years as we waited for the adoption referral. Once we had the referral, things happened quickly, and gift for adoption made funds available for our travel expenses. The whole process was seamless and easy.

We were so blessed to receive a grant from GOA and it not only helped us financially, but it also greatly encouraged us on our journey to adopt our son from Nicaragua! We are forever grateful to GOA and all who gave to this fund, to make it possible for us to receive aid. It's a beautiful thing, to help other families realize their dream of adopting; and the money sown into GOA, remains an eternal investment into the lives of the children it touches. Our son has been with us 1.5 years now and we couldn't imagine life without him!

Gift of adoption is a fantastic non-profit. They helped us in adopting our second child. Not only did they help with financial assistance to help complete her adoption, but they also sent a long a gift basket full of handmade items and notes of encouragement and support. They were very kind along every step of the process.

They are a fantastic group who has a commitment to helping families afford the very costly process of adoption.

Gift of Adoption was instrumental in helping us fund our adoption from China. We have been home for almost one month with our newest daughter, and we are so grateful for the assistance that we received to be able to complete her adoption!

We are extremely grateful to Gift of Adoption. They went above and beyond to help us with our grant. We actually applied on a Wednesday afternoon and by Friday it was approved. All staff members went the extra mile , while providing outstanding customer service. They expedited our grant due to the urgency of our adoption process at the time. GOA played a huge role in helping us bring our baby home. Our son David is a healthy, happy 6 months old baby boy. We will be forever grateful. Words can not express how much this organization means to us. Thank you for all that you do helping families bringing children to their forever homes.

Gift of Adoption came through with a grant for us at the tail end of our adoption and helped us to get the final $'s needed to travel on our 2nd trip to bring our girls home. It was a very generous grant and it allowed us to finalize our international adoption without taking out hefty loans. Thank you so much Gift of Adoption! Keep on helping kids!

Gift of Adoption Fund Inc...helped us become a family! As an active duty, enlisted military family, we knew that the finances needed for adoption could be prohibitive to the successful outcome we desired. Gift of Adoption provided the "home stretch" for us and we were able to give a forever home and family to bi-racial siblings. Four years later, Gift of Adoption gave a repeat performance and another sibling was brought home. Our high praise for GOAF is gloriously effusive...and for good reason. The staff is knowledgeable and professional but also warm, responsive and encouraging. We felt like they truly celebrated with us the completion of our adoptions and the formation of our family. Without their support, finalizing our adoptions would have created an incredible, if not impossible, strain on our resources. From the application process, to the award decisions, to the actual check receipt, to follow up - Gift of Adoption Fund Inc is an invaluable companion to the adoption journey.

We applied for an adoption grant through Gift of Adoption. They have followed up with us very well and even though our adoption has take three years to complete stuck with us and provided a very significant and helpful grant to help see our two daughters come home and be part of our family! I would highly recommend that any planning to adopt would seek them out for funding help.
