“Adoption can cost between $10,000 and $45,000, and as a result many orphans are not welcomed into a forever family. There are roughly 175 million orphans around the world and if God can adopt us into His family and call us His own, it is our hope that you consider following His example by adopting.” Together, lets help prospective families know…”how to finance their adoption.”
Please share your top adoption grant sites. If you can personally recommend organizations/grant sites that are passionate about helping reduce the financial barriers to adoption, please share information + URL in the comments. Also, if you have a special story to share about how an organization or individual helped with financial aid toward your own personal adoption…. please share, too! There are miracles happening in the world of adoption every day.
My Crazy Grant Picks:
- Shaohannah’s Hope, the Steven Curtis Chapman foundation created to help families adopt.
- Life Song for Orphans- grants and adoption loans.
- 147 Million Orphans non-profit ministry helps families fundraise for their OWN adoption.
- Life Song for Orphans- fundraise & serve for your adoption. Tax-deduction available for donations!!
Families in need of a similar resource can go to one of AWAA partner agencies, The Shepherd’s Crook. The Shepherd’s Crook Ministries also sets up an account for families so that tax-deductible donations can be made to help with the cost of international adoption. Please visit their website below:
“I would adopt if only I had the money.” We are here to say it can be done if you are willing to work. We are a family who has not had any extra money for the adoption fees, but my husband always says, “God will fund what He favors.” It has taken a lot of work, a lot of sharing our story, and a lot of time to raise the funds, but at the end of the day the JOY of being one step closer to our child is so worth it. We hope our site can help you in your fundraising efforts. (Gwen Oatsvall)
