We are excited to share some wonderful pictures and links to adoption experiences for some of the families who were awarded grants in 2021.

Thank you for your help and we appreciate the board giving us a grant to help  towards placement and post-placement costs!

"Thank You"

Bethany- California

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. 

Willow - Tennessee

Thank you so much for being a part of our adoption journey! We are filled with joy because the support and generosity of A Child Waits has helped bring our daughter home!

Isla Rose - California

Thanks so much. We are so grateful.

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.
