Our mission is to help prevent children from living their entire childhood without the warmth and love of a family by supporting international and domestic adoption through adoption grants and loans.
To increase the number of children who are adopted by providing grants and low interest loans to families to help with the cost of adoption.
History of A Child Waits
A Child Waits Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, formed in 1998 by Cynthia and Randolph Nelson. In 1995 we adopted a son and daughter from Russia and in 2001 a daughter from Romania. After we returned from Russia, friends, relatives and strangers met our children and expressed an interest in adopting but could not proceed because of the high cost of adoption. This motivated us to form the foundation to help prospective parents bridge the cost of adoption.
