We applied for a Gift if Adoption grant with our first adoption and got word we received the grant on our flight over to pick up our son in 2010. We were a little worried about the application fee, but decided it would help someone's adoption whether it was ours or not. We were super thankful to receive the grant.

Then we applied for another grant with our second adoption. Due to some issues with adoptions in Peru, we had to change countries. This prolonged our adoption process. Our application expired by the time we got our referral. The process between referral and bringing our daughter home was super quick. Gift of Adoption not only waived the fee to renew our application, but they also allowed us to email it in so they could get our application in on time. We received a grant again to bring home our daughter this year, 2019.

The organization has been great! They allowed us to apply more than once, which allowed us more time to be matched with a child. Once we were matched with sweet Amelia Joy, they sent us to the review committee. They were prompt and very generous. We would definitely recommend them to other adoptive families.

Words can not express how grateful we are for Gift of Adoption. We recently adopted 2 beautiful girls from Africa and had come to the point that we just didn't know how to pay for the final steps. Thanks to Gift of Adoption we were able to hop on a plane and head to Africa!

Gift of Adoption is an amazing organization that has helped us adopt three siblings from foster care. Their generous funds granted to us allowed us to reduce our personal adoption loans and bring them into our home. They have been supportive, encouraging, kind, and very responsive throughout the whole process. I recommend Gift of Adoption to any adoptive adoptive families with unique needs who are looking to grow their family through adoption.

Through Gift of Adoption, we have been able to adopt our second child from the country of Georgia. Our daughter was born with congenital deformities, so receiving a grant for her adoption has helped us tremendously have the funds we needed to provide her with the medical care she has needed to provide surgeries and eventually fit her with a prosthetic leg so that she can learn to walk. We are extremely grateful to Gift of Adoption!

I had a great experience with the Gift of Adoption Fund. My wife and I adopted twins from Haiti. We are so excited to have our girls home, but the process of international adoption is incredibly expensive! We applied to the Gift of Adoption Fund for help. The application process didn't take long and we heard from GoA each month telling us that our application had been reviewed. We were notified that we received a $7500 grant, and it came at the perfect time. My wife was granted a maternity leave to help transition, but the leave is unpaid. The check arrived when Shannon's paychecks stopped, and it will replace her lost income. The money has helped us truly relax and enjoy weaving our new children into our family. We are very appreciative!

Gift of Adoption came forward in both 2018 and 2019 with sizable grants to help our family adopt teens from Eastern Europe. Without their assistance, we would be scrambling to find the funds necessary to meet the astronomical cost of international adoption, and the children would have aged out and become victims of either human trafficking or the drug trade in their country of birth.

GOA's application process is the most streamlined we have experienced, while the staff is caring, courteous, and genuinely concerned about the experience of the adoptive family. Guidance is only a phone call or email away. Example: the Chief Administrative Officer took a call from a panicked Mama (that would be me) who was literally about to fly to Europe on a pickup trip and immediately liaised with our placing agency to untangle a financial snag that had arisen. We feel very fortunate to have GOA walking alongside us in our adoption journey.

Dear Gift of Adoption,

Our family is writing today to show our gratitude. Gift of Adoption has made it possible for us to be able to bring our son home.

Our total process was 555 days. We Knew in our hearts that we were being called to adopt a little boy from China. China was the most important place to us because we know that it is not only difficult but also dangerous to practice Christianity there.

During our period of prayer about adopting, our family visited The Noah’s Ark Encounter, in Kentucky. We were looking at the World map about Christianity. We saw so many “red pins” all over China. The red pins represented 2% of areas of Christianity. That was the moment in this process that pushed us forward and changed our hearts for that area. In that moment we knew our son was going to be from China.

We also knew that the financial part was going to be very difficult. But we felt that if God was calling us to adopt, then somehow, we would be able to come up with the funds. He was going to provide a way if we just stayed faithful. We had multiple fundraisers, but we were still lacking a tremendous amount of funding.

This process seemed very long and had its many ups and downs, but we actively pursued Gods calling on our family. He showed us so many things along the way and we are forever changed due to God’s Grace in our lives. He gave us the faith and strength to show up in obedience. And we are so glad we did.

We have had our son, Beck, home with us now for 3 months and we can’t imagine life without him. We have watched him grow and adjust to his new surroundings and he has been so brave through it all. He has overcome so much already in the short time that he has been with us. He has been a true blessing and he amazes us every day. God sure knew what he was doing when he gave us Beck. He will now be able to freely see what it means to follow Jesus. And we are so excited to share the Gospel with him. We cannot wait to see what God has in store for Becks future here.

After hearing the news of the approval of our grant, our hearts were overjoyed.
There are not enough words to express how grateful we are for this funding. We would like to thank Gift of Adoption for not only helping our family make our adoption a reality, but also thank you for all of the hard work and dedication that you have poured into so many families lives. The work that you are doing is changing these children’s lives for the better in so many ways. Gift of Adoption has been a tremendous blessing for our family.

We have adopted five children through three adoption processes. It was the help of Gift of Adoption that made it possible for my family to grow.
All five of my children have Down syndrome and were abandoned at birth due to the fact they had special needs. Our beautiful children now have a family of their own to love them and stand with them.
We can never express the gratitude we have for the help from Gift of Adoption have to us to bring our children home.

We were pursuing an international sibling adoption of three children. We realized that we would need to seek grant assistance for our adoption journey, so we looked for a fund that wanted to help siblings stay together. Gift of Adoption was amazing in that they made the application process so simple! We were kept informed all along the way of the status of our application and were so thrilled when we were approved for a grant! It was so unexpected and amazing to have our grant come just at the right moment. We were stuck overseas for over three months trying to finish the adoption process and would never have been able to finish and come home with our beautiful children without the financial assistance we received from GOA. We are eternally grateful and will always be amazed that what we needed came at just the right time in our adoption process. Thank you GOA.

Gift of Adoption was great to work with. Thanks to their generosity, we were able to adopt four siblings from Ukraine in 2017 that otherwise would not have been adopted. We are so grateful to the Gift of Adoption team and all they did for us. They communicated with us regularly throughout the process and have been nothing but professional. I could not recommend GOA more for adoption grants.

Gift Of Adoption was a huge blessing in our lives. We applied for an adoption grant to help with the fees of adoption. Alone, adoption fees are high, but our baby was born prematurely and we had a lot of unplanned medical expenses too. We applied for a grant and it was a huge blessing to us. They were great to work with and the disbursement was coordinated through our agency, and we had no problems at all. We couldn't be happier with our new little baby and Gift of Adoption helped make it possible. This is a wonderful organization that can help families grow in wonderful ways.

We received a grant to complete our adoption from India. The application process was well organized and we were informed every step of the way as to what our next step was, what to expect, etc. Good communication, transparent and effective company!
