International and Domestic Adoption
Our Families 2018
In 2018 we awarded grants to help 223 children to be adopted from 21 different countries. Some of their wonderful pictures and links to their adoption experiences are below.
Kade - China
We are home!! Thank you so much for everything.
Andres, Laura & Samuel
Thank you for helping make this dream a reality for us! We are home and have never been happier!
I pray that the Lord continue to provide the financial means necessary in order to give more orphans a forever family.
Benjamin - China
Thank you so much. This comes at such perfect timing as our travel expenses to GZ to complete the adoption process are more expensive than we had planned. We really appreciate your generous help! Benjamin joined our family three days ago and he is doing great! Thanks again for being a part of his journey home!
Zahara - China
We want to thank A Child Waits Foundation for helping us to bring our daughter, Grace, home. We couldn't have done it without you.
LiLi - China
We received word that we had a grant coming. This could not have come at a better time. We were short on our final fee and trying to figure out how to pay that fee and have monies for travel. This grant truly made the adoption happen without having to delay the trip, which would have changed many things, including costs.
Delanie - Bulgaria
Bryan and I can’t adequately express the depth of our gratitude to A Child Waits for helping make this miracle possible for our family. Without your generous support, we could not have adopted Delanie. Because of you, our precious girl is able to have a happy childhood in a loving family. Truly, miracles happen.
With much gratitude
Christian - China
Christian from Fuzhou China is now home with us and is doing really well. He is 4 1/2 and has adapted really well. He is enrolled in ESL pre school and loves it. He is such a happy and smart little guy and we love him to the moon and back.
Thank you so much for your very generous grant which made it possible for me to travel and bring Christian home.
Joy - China
We want to thank you from the deepest depths of our hearts for your generous grant towards our adoption of our daughter, Joy! Here is a picture of Joy the moment she became a US Citizen. We are so very thankful for your organization's efforts to make adoptions affordable for us all, your board of directors, and of course for those who donate to your organization. We were blessed to have a safe trip to and from China.
Thank you again for your generosity!
Joel - China
Joel loves to play with cars...all things cars really. Cars the movie, but also hot wheels cars, police cars, lego cars. And then there's the trucks. monster trucks, pickup trucks, fire trucks. And then there's the construction vehicles. Excavators, bulldozers. : ) Clearly, the kid likes cars.
Joel also loves to sing and dance. Turn on music, and Joel will look to find a dance partner. He's working hard to learn letters, colors, numbers, etc., he's doing so well. We couldn't be more proud of him! We are so thankful that Joel joined our family. He is a precious boy and an all around amazing kid! Thank you for your help in bringing him to his forever family.
Jace - China
"Thank you so much for helping us with our final adoption expenses, and gifting us such a generous grant in our final days! I was so worried with the short notice and last minute application before our travel dates, but you prioritized our need and we are forever grateful. Your generosity took away so much of the stress during that time of travel and allowed us to focus on the real task at hand- meeting Jace!
Again, thank you SO MUCH for being a part of our adoption journey, and helping us bring Jace home!"
Bryan - Colombia
"We are grateful for the generous grant from A Child Waits."
Matthew & Cora - China
"I just wanted to send an update on our little ones and again thank you for your generosity! We received grants for our adoptions of both Matthew in 2015 and Cora in 2018. The grants were a tremendous blessing. Matthew is now 6 and Cora is now 5. They are both doing so well and we couldn’t imagine our lives without them!"
Jefferson & Albina - Costa Rica
This journey we have been on has been equal parts extreme privilege and immense challenge. To be quite honest, we could not have done it- not emotionally, not operationally, and not financially- without the support of "our people". Without you, this photo to the left that captures (our "gotcha day") never would have or could have happened. Getting all seven of us together is something we were only able to do because of all of you.
Your love, your prayers and your generosity helped us to accomplish this incredible thing-making a forever family that included two children who went from photos in a far away land, to a beautiful idea, to family- in just about a years time. The investment you have made in our family is far beyond anything we can fully grasp, and certainly beyond anything we can ever repay. For all you have done to help our family become complete, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Tessa - China
We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support we received this year. Thank you for being part of our journey.
Cisco - China
We are so very grateful for the help you provided in bringing Cisco home. We are so thankful to finally be together as a family.
Please know that you have made all the difference for my Cisco who is now a son, a brother, a grandson and more.
Your kindness will be forever remembered in the journey to love. Thank you for saying YES!
