As of July 2023, we've given grants to over 120 deserving families in the U.S.! Our goal is for children with special needs to be adopted into traditional, two-parent Christian families; however we do give consideration to other families as well on an individual basis. We also offer a special "Downright Lovable" grant for families adopting children with Down syndrome and a "Heart Warrior" grant for families adopting children who have heart defects.
In an effort to equip our special needs grant families in additional ways, we offer the gift of a strategic prayer partner, a copy of "The Connected Parent" by Lisa Qualls and Dr. Karyn Purvis, and quarterly trauma-informed trainings through trained practitioners.
We determine what financial assistance will be offered based on the following criteria:
