Our Families  2021  
Domestic Adoption

In 2021 we awarded grants to help 181 children to be adopted from 22 different countries and 27 states in the USA. Some of their wonderful pictures and links to their adoption experiences are below.

Bethany- California

Hatcher, Melissa 2021.jpeg

We always wanted a child with Down syndrome. Because of this, we intentionally sought out relationships with people with DS and celebrated World Down Syndrome Day with our kids. We completed a home study for an international adoption, then Covid shut down the world. We decided to pivot to a domestic adoption with the help of the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network. We hired a photographer, made a profile book, and started waiting again. After 9 failed presentations, we got the call that we’d been chosen to parent our sweet Bethany on March 21st - World Down Syndrome Day. We are so thankful for A Child Waits Foundation for helping our adoption dream become a reality.

Hi this is Michelle, I and my daughter and whole family, friends, community and my church want to say thank you so much. I will forever be blessed with the help from your foundation 🙏with your funds I was able to cover some of Ezra's adoption fees and with out you I wouldn't have  been able to cover it. Because of your generosity I was able to make it home and be able to purchase formula and crib clothes for Ezra and pay a couple of bills thank you so much and God Bless from our family to yours.

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for your generous donation. As you have read in our letters, we have been on this journey for a few years now and have lost, both financially and emotionally. But this time we stepped out on faith; not having enough money, strength, or patience...BUT GOD.

Here we are at the end of our process with this generous donation, two consenting parents, and steps away from making our family complete. We could never thank you enough.

Throughout this entire process, our family has leaned on Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God." We have done our best to do that and He has again proven that He always takes care of his own. We know we got our son in a very unconventional way, but we would not change anything about it. Thank you for being a group who are dedicated to helping others throughout this process. Thank you for your donation.


Please continue doing this great work as it is helping far more than you will ever know.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for selecting our family to receive your generous adoption grant. We had to travel in Texas during their black out/Winter crisis and ended up being away from home much longer than anticiapted. Your grant helped us pay off credit card debt that was starting to add up. We really appreciate it and plan to pay it forward!
