Our entire process has been completely blessed by God's timing and the grant from A Child Waits was no exception.
We are thrilled to share our journey with you and wish you continued success in helping other families just like us. Please know that every dollar that you give makes a difference."

Thank you for all that A Child Waits did to bring home our son, he has added so much zest to the family! We already can't imagine life without him, and are so grateful for the grant!"
Theodore - China
"Our journey began with much prayer and hesitation. My husband and I are both LP’s (we have a type of dwarfism). Unable to have children of our own we knew we wanted to adopt."
Pauli - Bulgaria
"Since Pauli and I arrived home from Bulgaria on February 11, we've been very busy!"
Leo - China
We wanted to take a moment and thank you for the generous grant our family received from your foundation. Your gift helped relieve us of financial burden once we arrived home and most importantly, helped in bringing our son home.
We had a amazing trip to China and enjoyed exploring our son's birth city of Chengdu as a family. We have been grateful for an amazing transition home and have enjoyed every moment getting to know our son. Leo is a cheerful, energetic boy and keeps us busy every day.
Adoption has blessed our family greatly, and we are thankful for the generosity of your foundation.

Max - China
Thank you and all of A Child Waits Foundation for allowing us to bring our beautiful son home. We are so happy to have him home and begin a new life together. We had his first visit to the cardiologist and his prognosis looks good. If the next surgery is successful, he could live to be 50 years old!
Thank you so much again for helping bring him home. You will never know how grateful we are for that!!!!
Let us know if there is any other way that we can help the organization through our story. Thanks again.

We want to sincerely thank you so much for blessing us with A Child Waits Foundation grant to complete the adoption cost for our travel to China.

Thank you AGAIN & AGAIN for supporting and advocating for adoption and the unadopted.
Blessings to you all!
Khloe - China
"We are home from China with our precious Khloe. And here it's already been almost 4 months!"
Aiden - China
"I wanted to send a big THANK YOU to A Child Waits for your help in bringing home our son, Aiden. We got home from China in July, and it's been such a joy to have Aiden as part of our family!"
Hannah & Maryanne- China
Thank you so much for giving us a grant to help with the final expenses of bringing our daughters home from China! We couldn't have very well financed the adoption of our daughters without the help of our friends, family, and your organization. We are so honored, blessed, and appreciative that you chose to help us in our adoption journey! Thank you for helping us bring Hannah and Maryanne home to our family. After seeing the situation in China and seeing them fit in here, in our family, it's hard to imagine if we had let finances stop us from bringing them home.
Annalise - Ukraine
We want to thank you all for encouraging us and financially supporting our adoption!
Our daughter is absolutely darling and we could not imagine life without her. She is full of personality and now that she has learned some English she chatters away to us. It is amazing to see her transformation. She is also very social and makes friends wherever we go. We could never put into never put into words how grateful we are for your generous grant that helped us bring her home!
