The A Child Waits Foundation's gift of adoption is the gift of what the Greeks call "storge". It is an unconditional love that cannot be measured, weighed, or quantified in any way. There is no moment that can sum up what this gift truly means to us. The gift has transformed from something tangible to a feeling, a piece of our hearts occupied by Keone and Kamiah and made possible by the gift provided by you.

Baby M - Florida

Thank you again for the adoption grant! We are so thankful. 

Baby M was such a surprise! We adopted with the same birth mother as our daughter who is now 4 years old! It was a long wait for this sweet child, as before we were chosen by his birth mother, we had heard no for many many months when presenting to other situations. We felt God's presence throughout the adoption but we also felt anxious and unsure of his plans. Our adoption was difficult, as our birth mother was incarcerated. We shed many tears and heartache  for her but were able to speak with her many times over the 7 month wait.

Baby M was supposed to be a girl but to our surprise it was a boy! We are so thrilled and overjoyed that our son and daughter get to be with each other and support one another on their adoption journey. They adore one another! We are fortunate to have a close relationship with our birth mother. We are so thankful for the gift from A Child Waits Foundation. Adoption is stressful, emotionally and financially but it always works out in the end when you hold your baby in your arms. This grant helped to bring our baby boy home and we are so appreciative.

Thank you so much. I am so appreciative for this grant. Thank you for everything you have done to assist me and helping me with baby Sarai's adoption expenses.

Naya - Florida

We are so so grateful for the support A Child Waits Foundation offered us when the opportunity to adopt our sweet Naya came up suddenly.


Naya was a stork drop! She was born in Florida and was headed into the Foster Care system.  With help from A Child Waits we were able to get the funds we needed together to fly out and pick her up within 2 days of receiving the call.  

Naya has become such a joyful addition to our family.  She is doted on by her two big brothers and her grandparents.  She’s healthy and growing and happy; gracing us all with smiles every day.  

Andre - Illinois

Thank you for the generous grant toward our adoption expenses. That certainly brought extra joy and peace into this exciting season. We are forever grateful!

We can’t thank A Child Waits enough for what they have done for our family. Deanna and her team took the time to check in with us often during our two year journey waiting for our son. She was warm and kind and most of all she didn’t discriminate against our family like so many granting organizations do. Most small grants we looked into openly discriminated against non-religious and/or LGBTQ+ families. But Deanna and A Child Waits was open minded and understood our struggle.


A few months ago we were matched with a five month old baby boy in Florida, and Raymona empathetically went over all the details with us. The grant we received from A Child Waits has helped us adopt without a ton of debt.


Our son is the absolute joy of all our lives. A Child Waits helped us bring him home.

"We married young, which gave us time to mature in our Christian walks and allow the Holy Spirit to align our hearts’ desires to His will..."

Jessa- Florida

"Thanks, again, and may God bless you for your kindness in supporting so many adoptive families!"

Beau - Florida

Parlsey pic_edited.jpg

We finalized our adoption via zoom yesterday. We’re over the moon happy. It was perfect. We had family and friends over for breakfast and many others were able to join online. The highlight of the day was that Beau’s biological grandma joined and spoke about how happy she was for this adoption, Beau and our family. It was such an amazing moment. It was a full circle moment of clarity of the goodness of God. God’s plan is wonderful, even if we cannot see it during the process.

Thank you for supporting us and being a part of our adoption journey.

Makayla- Florida

We wanted to reach out and send a sincere THANK YOU for the generous grant we received for Hazel last year! You will be happy 

to know that Hazels birthfather was located and he signed over his rights with no issue and we have a great relationship with him as well now!  We finalized Hazels adoption on June 12th, which was also my 33rd birthday! God is in the details! Thank you again for playing a part in Hazel becoming a part of our family.
