Testimonies From Past Grant Honorees

“My wife and I had a wonderful experience with National Adoption Foundation. Like many other couples who adopt, we faced financial obstacles on our adoption journey. However, my wife and I agreed that we would never let those obstacles stop us from our goal. Through our research, we discovered National Adoption Foundation and the adoption grants they provide. Luckily, we were one of the applicants chosen by NAF. Because of NAF’s generous grant, we were able to use the money to assist with our adoption. No doubt, without NAF, we would have struggled to achieve our adoption goal. Because of NAF’s generous assistance, we are forever grateful that they helped us adopt our baby boy.” – Joel and Lana

“The application was very straight forward and easy to understand and complete. They were always in contact with me through every step of the process and was especially appreciated considering the state of the world right now dealing with the virus. Once our grant was awarded they notified us and a few days later we received it in the mail. One of the smoothest adoption grant processes we have experienced. Thank you!” -Anonymous

“We are so thankful for the National Adoption Foundation and your generous contribution to our adoption story. With so many uncertainties in the process, it is amazing to count on this grant, and even more during this pandemic. We look forward to sharing the ‘end’ of our adoption story… and the ‘beginning’ of our new family!” With much gratitude, Elizabeth and Paul
