Gift of Adoption was fantastic to work with. I felt they always kept me updated and informed by staying in frequent contact with me. We are so grateful to them for helping us raise the necessary funds to be able to adopt our beautiful baby boy!

I have nothing but great things to say about Gift of Adoption. They were supportive and encouraging, easy to communicate and work with, and did everything to assist with a positive outcome. I have had some disappointing experiences with some grant programs, but Gift of Adoption far exceeded anything I could have hoped for. I have already recommended them to others.

My wife and I were home study approved at the beginning of May and were matched with a birth mother on May 25th. This match was such a blessing in so many ways! The one draw back to being matched so quickly is coming up with the funds in a timely manner. Through "Gift of Adoption" we were awarded a grant in a timely manner and we were able to apply that grant directly towards incurred adoption costs. Our baby boy is now 11 weeks old and we cannot put into words the love we have for him. "Gift of Adoption" truly was a blessing for us and helped bring our family together.

Praise God for Gift of Adoption!! Even though domestic, our adoption costs quickly escalated beyond what we were expecting and the generosity of Gift of Adoption was used mightily by God to minister to us in the process! We couldn't say thank you enough times to express our gratitude!

Gift of Adoption is a great foundation and my family is eternally grateful for them for allowing us to financially afford adopting our son. The process was smoothe and simple. They responded quickly to documentation submissions and any concerns we had. I wish this foundation much success and hope they continue to help families in need. My son makes my heart beat outside my chest. He's the happiest baby you'll ever meet. We're so happy we're able to give him the life we envisioned for him.

Less than a year ago God laid it on our hearts to open our home to an orphan with Down Syndrome. Our 8 year old son has Down Syndrome and we read about the Bamboo Project started about 3 years ago to find homes for the "unadoptable" orphans in China with Down Syndrome. The number of obstacles to adoption, especially the financial made it seem impossible that we could ever adopt! We learned it would cost close to $35,000 but decided to move forward and trust God to provide.
After an amazing amount of paperwork, approvals, fundraisers and grant applications, we are thrilled to say that by the end of January we brought home the sweetest, most precious little girl from China. She lights up our already very busy home! God has provided over and abundantly what we ever could have imagined, Our hearts are forever grateful for Gift of Adoption and all of you who gave so generously to help us completely cover the expenses of the adoption. Thank you for caring enough for the precious children so they can be part of a family. It is such a joy to watch our daughter's great excitement as she experiences things she has never done before such as playing out in the snow today and going for a sled ride. Watching these orphans transform in so many ways once they are in the loving care of a family is absolutely beautiful. Thank you Gift of Adoption!

Our family is so thankful to Gift of Adoption as they helped us to be able to fully pay for our adoption. Already a family of four it was tough to continue to save money on two teachers salaries while knowing the calling that was also placed on our family. We dove in last Spring and started raising money and were chosen to be a special, sweet little girls family. At the very end Gift of Adoption was there and blessed us with the exact amount we needed to make it all work out. They were excited with us and very timely!! We are so thankful for our family of five.

Gift of Adoption Fund awarded us a grant of $5,000, and without that gift, I don't know how we would have paid for the expenses of the adoption of our two children (ages 2 and 6) from an orphanage in Haiti. We are so thankful for Gift of Adoption Fund, and for the way they have helped to make this possible.

We are forever grateful to GOAF. Everything happened so quickly we were short funds. It was nice to have an email address where we could notify them our adoption got kicked into high gear and with their help we were able to start our family and keep a 2 year old boy with the most infectious laugh out of foster care. GOAF's application process was outlined very nicely. They kept us informed throughout the review process. Thank you GOAF! You made a life changing difference in our life and we look forward to helping others some day and paying it forward!

We were very blessed by our experience with Gift of Adoption! The application was easy to complete, and the wait was not long at all compared to most other adoption grants. We especially appreciated the option to send a personal e-mail with more details about our story right before our application was reviewed - it made us feel like they cared very much about our family's needs and how they could help. We were awarded a generous grant that completed the funding of our adoption agency fees!

Gift of Adoption is such a blessing! We are so thankful to them for helping us through financial support to become a forever family. We hope to have our son home next February. We have done as many fundraisers as we can squeeze in but to receive this grant elevates the financial burden. Gift of Adoption has been wonderful to work with and we look forward to one day being donors to help other families.

It is not an exaggeration to say that we could not have done this without the generosity of Gift of Adoption. They were professional, helpful and, and walked with us the entire way, helping to close the gap between what we had and what we needed.
