Our Families 2021
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!
Here is a picture of our sweet girl Ophelia and our family ❤️.
Matt & Heather
Woodrow - Arkansas
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.
Ezra - Louisiana 2021
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.
Victoria Rose - Texas
Thank you so much! We are very grateful for the grant!
Victoria is doing well, and our older daughter, Katie, loves being the big sister!
Omarion - South Carolina
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.
