Our Families 2014
In 2014 we awarded grants to help 125 children to be adopted from 16 different countries. Some of their wonderful pictures and links to their adoption experiences are below.
Nora - China
Thank you so much for helping us bring our daughter home from China. Our Nora Beth Min Yi has been an absolute joy since we first met almost 4 months ago. She is a sweet, little girl with a lot of spunk!
She loves reading with Mama, dancing with her Baba, jumping on her new trampoline (her favorite birthday present) and chasing around 3 puppies. Nora is quite the little chatter box- talking in both English and Mandarin! She has quite the vocabulary.
She sleeps through the night and takes a nap during the day. She's an excellent eater. The only thing she doesn't like is broccoli. She also really dislikes bath time, especially having her hair washed.
Nora is doing vey well in spite of her many medical special needs .
We are so blessed to be her parents.
Preston - China
I continue to be amazed, but so very grateful, that the Foundation was willing to help a 56 year old, retired, single woman adopt her 5th child from China!
Thank you again for helping to bring her to her forever home!
Ke Li - China
Lia Kate is an absolute joy! She has adjusted well and is full of smiles. Thank you for your grant prior to my travel.
Ester - China
Thank you so much for helping support our adoption to China! We're grateful for your gift, because of your generosity we're able to bring home Ester.
Elias - China
A Child Waits, We are so grateful and honored to have been the recipients of your generous grant. We know you must receive many applications, so we do not take it lightly that you chose us. Because of you and others like you, we were able to go through with a $34,000 adoption completely debt-free! God bless you richly.
Silas - China
We can't thank you enough for the relief we feel of not having to bring back our son from China with mounting financial pressures over our head. Thank you. The journey of adopting is deeply rewarding but as you know the sting and stress of all details and bills can make one want to shrink. You help people in a very, very tangible way so that the focus of adopting can go right back to the little life at the center of it all.
Eli - China
Thank you so much for helping us bring our son home.
Alric - China
We are delighted to be able to send you this photograph - a photographic moment that you helped make possible because of your generous contribution to the adoption of our precious son, Alric. We are forever grateful for your partnership and thank God every time we think of you. A million times over, thank you.
Ki - Uganda
We are grateful for your assistance in our families journey.
Laila - China
Our family would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your assistance in bringing home our daughter Laila from China. Laila suffers from a very severe genetic blood disorder, beta thalassemia major, and at 3 ½ years old she had never received proper treatment for it. She was truly in a life-threatening situation and your assistance helped to save her life!!
Our expedited adoption took a short six months from start to finish, and after draining our savings adopting a little boy with the same medical condition the year before, we knew we were going to need help to bring our precious daughter home. Your amazing gift helped make this adoption happen!
Jordan - China
We received Jordan on August 4th, wow that was three months ago! The picture above is of our completed family. We weren't looking to adopt, but when we learned about a boy in China with the same condition as our son, we instantly knew we needed to bring him home to our family, where we could get Jordan the same kind of care. We faced many road blocks along the way, the cost of an international adoption was among them, but with a lot of faith, prayers and a grant from A Child Waits Foundation, we were able to bring our son Jordan home. He is such a joy and we are deeply grateful to A Child Waits for helping ease some of the financial burden of his adoption.
Kweku - Ghana
Kweku has transitioned really well and even loves the snow!! He is in kindergarten and making new friends. He is so smart, remembers almost everything we tell him and can dance and sing really well!
Again, thank you so much for your financial support. It made a HUGE impact in those final few days as we prepared to fly to Ghana and bring him home.
Elena - Ukraine
Oliver & Kalli - China
Thank you for your prayers and support. We feel them, and have felt God's constant presence and comfort.
Jacob & Finn - China
We can't thank you enough for helping to build our family.
James - Bulgaria
Thank you so much for the generous grant. Our adoption costs added up much higher than when we started the process. Your foundation was the only place that granted us funding. It is so completely and totally appreciated. The grant was such a blessing to our family. Applying for your grant was very streamlined and everybody was so very helpful and efficient. Your funding helped us become a family! Thank you so very much.
Tobias - China
Thank you so much for your financial help in bringing our son home. He is an absolute blessing! A Child Waits is truly doing the Lord's work and we are beyond grateful to you all!
Thank you again so much for the grant. It went a long way in helping pay for our travel costs. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, but it was so good to come back home again.
