The staff at Gift of Adoption were excellent in communicating with us every step of the way as we went through the process of applying for an adoption grant. They were very professional and yet very warm and inviting as they kept in touch with us. We think they are awesome and their work is invaluable for children!

The process for the GOA grant was relatively easy. They did not make us pay the application fee when we had to reapply after our first adoption fell through. They initially had some trouble communicating, but were able to set that right. They are very timely and business professional. We received a $3,000 grant for our domestic adoption to cover attorney fees and were overall satisfied with their process and reward.

Gift of Adoption was very thorough and stayed informed with our adoption progress. They filled a very unique need by awarding us a grant at the very end of our journey after we had exhausted all other options. We were very impressed with their careful management of their funds. Y. family

Words cannot express the appreciation and the kindness and generosity of Gift of Adoption. Our daughter would not be with us in this country today without that grant coming through. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you always.

We were at our last stage of adoption fighting fiercely to bring our little girl out of a life of institutional living and into our loving family. We had exhausted all our financial resources and surrendered to the idea that we would have to take a loan out in order to bring our daughter home. Gift of Adoption swept in and saved us at just the right moment. Thanks to Gift of Adoption we are settling in as a family of six with out the financial burden a loan brings. Thank you, Gift of Adoption!

We applied for and have been approved for a grant through Gift of Adoption. It was quite a long process, but every aspect was straight-forward and someone was always there to respond within hours by email. This organization is literally putting families together through funding adoptions that may not have happened otherwise. We are so thankful we found out about this organization through our church.

Our experience with Gift of Adoption has been a wonderful blessing and we are so very appreciative of the generous support they offer to adoptive families like ours.
The application process was straight forward and the communication was always prompt and courteous. They told us exactly when the grant selection committee would review our application and we found out we had received the grant less than three days later.
We would highly recommend them to any prospective adoptive family who has significant financial challenges. They really do help change lives.

We had a great experience with Gift of Adoption. After submitting our application, we were notified of each step in the review process - including when a funding decision would be made. We received notification of our grant award on the exact day they told us to expect it, and disbursement of the funds was a straightforward process. We are so thankful for the role Gift of Adoption played in adding another child to our family.

When no one else would approve us for support, Gift of Adoption stepped in and said "yes." Without their support we would not have been able to bring our daughter home.

The process to apply, be officially approved and have the funds dispersed to our adoption agency was clear and did not require a lot of hassle.

I am constantly recommending them to others in the adoption community as we are heavily involved with local and online groups.

I was absolutely desperate for funds. I was doing fine fundraising for my 7 year old Chinese daughter's adoption until I became aware of a 13 year old girl who was aging out of the system in a couple of months and had to be adopted immediately. No way was I ready!! I was in a panic, as I suddenly had 5 fewer months to fundraise, plus I needed extra funds to adopt a second child! Gift of Adoption rescued me, and my daughters!! They provided the funds needed to get me over the "hump" financially and I was successfully able to adopt 2 of the most precious young ladies you ever met. Not only did they write a check, they also followed up afterward, sending precious gifts to each of the girls! The loving care given by these folks has astonished me, time and again. The girls and I are eternally grateful to them.

We applied in May 2015 requesting assistance with our international adoption fees and expenses, and Gift of Adoption responded with help in less than 60 days which was truly wonderful.

All of their communication was timely, genuinely courteous and kind, and they made everything really easy.

We were very pleased and happy with Gift of Adoption!

We were excited to receive a grant from Gift of Adoption. The individuals were great to work with, though the board was demanding in getting appropriate receipts and paperwork that justified our expenses. Thanks for aiding $2,500 in the $40,000 process of adoption. Everything helps!

We are in the process of adopting four brothers from Haiti. This is a costly adoption. It has been a real blessing to have Gift of Adoption fund come along side and offer us a grant that we can use at the end when it is time to bring these boys home and we have used up all our other sources. They have been very easy and simple to work with . Thank you Gift of Adoption fund!
