A Child Waits Foundation
Grant Program for International Adoption
A Child Waits Foundation's Grant Program is designed to help children who are living in international orphanages to become part of a family. Our grant program provides assistance to families who are pursuing adoption of these children.
Our mission is to save children from living their entire childhood in international orphanages without the warmth and love of a family. Every child deserves a family and our goal is to unite children waiting for parents, with parents who are longing for children.
review is complete, all decisions are final and we do not allow re-application
or re-consideration of denied applications. If an application is denied due
to lack of funding it will be the sole discretion of the Board of Directors
to re-submit the application for the next funding cycle.
How to Apply
Please begin by completing the Grant Adoption Information Form:
Please note: It is required to submit picture and medical information on the child or children to be adopted.
Mail or fax the form/information to the Foundation:

Once we receive the Adoption Information Form we will review and determine if you meet our guidelines. Very often, at this stage we will contact you to clarify questions we may have regarding this form. If it is determined that you meet the Foundation's criteria you will be mailed or faxed a grant application. If you do not meet the criteria, you will be notified by the Foundation.
Please note that we only accept applications from families who have completed the Adoption Information Form and have been advised by the Foundation staff to apply. The grant application is specific to the grant program, please don't use the loan application that is available on this site to apply for a grant; it will not be accepted or processed.
