Each of these families exists today due to the generous support of our donors.
This has been the bumpiest road I have ever been on, but what a ride it has been. Worth every minute! Alexander is the best baby and such a blessing to our family. He is loved by so many and is flourishing. I have you and your organization to thank for all of this. Thank you so much for all your help and for making this happen. My dreams all came true!
I just want to say that our hearts are so full of gratitude for the blessing that your organization has given us, and that everyday when we hold our dear boy you are thought of. You have helped us to have a forever family and it has meant the world to us. I hope that we will always be in touch and that your organization can help others as it has helped us.
Words cannot even begin to describe what Helpusadopt.org has done for us. I truly believe everything that happened was meant to be and I can’t imagine being a mother to any other child. Adoption has been one of the best things I have done in my life.
When I first saw them come out of the gate, I became compeltely unglued. We had been waiting so many years and then that day it took over an hour for them to clear customs, and I just fell apart. It was amazing. I just couldn't believe they were finally here. It was our miracle. You gave us our miracle.
"We are truly blessed and forever thankful for your organization being a part of our adoption journey, and helping unite these sisters. When I think of Helpusadopt.org and your generous donation, it brings me to tears every time."
“You were with us throughout the adoption of our two little kids from Ethiopia. Here we are, one year exactly to the day that we officially became the parents of Ava and Eli. We are completely humbled by the grant you awarded us and the devotion that you gave us throughout the process and continue to give us today.”
"Words cannot express our gratitude for the grant that was awarded to us. The support that your organization provided allowed us to concentrate on our daughter, and developing our relationship with her. Adopting Quinn has changed our life in unexpected and wonderful ways. Your grant has helped to profoundly change all of our lives. We can now say that we are a truly grateful family.”
“We want to express our sincere gratitude and humble thanks for being both considered and chosen for an adoption grant. It has put a much needed gust of wind in our sails as we continue on this journey.”
"This grant meant that we could spend the last frenzied weeks before Cici was born focusing on building the relationship with her birthmother and getting prepared to become responsible for a third little life! She was literally the best Christmas present ever, and we can't tell you how giddy we were. We have wanted to be parents since we first got together almost ten years ago. Having Cici in our lives these last 4 and a half months has been the most extraordinary experience we've ever had."
“I want you to know that you have made a profound and everlasting impact on our lives. It is literally a dream come true for me to become a mom, for Jim and I to be parents together. It is hard for me to put into words what a gift this is because I’m literally overcome with emotion whenever I think about it. Now we look at each other, and we feel like two of the luckiest people in the world both because of our sweet son and daughter. Your gift has transformed our lives."
"Just last night Albert told me how much he likes it here and that he’s glad he does not have to go back. His exact words were ‘I think about going back to Estonia. I’m glad I live here.’ I know how rare the single-father adoption scenario is, so you can see what you helped bring about."
"I'll never forget the morning that you called to tell me the incredible news. I had been struggling to pay the adoption costs after having been laid off, didn't know how I was going to be able to move forward with the process. Who would have thought that only 4 short months later I would be bringing home my beautiful daughter? I longed to be a mom for 14 years, but never thought I could afford it. This grant made it possible for me to have the child I've always dreamed of."
“You have been a part of this amazing story, and for this we are so grateful! We were working so hard to come up with money for this adoption, and knew we still fell short of the money we needed. You have taken the panic of finances away, and have allowed us to focus instead on the joy of the moment. Every heartache, every ‘do you have kids’ has now been overshadowed by the tremendous joy of our son.”
“As Tes and I celebrate three years together, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who helped us on our journey to each other. Thank you all for your help and support. As a single mother I continue to thank God each day for my beautiful little blessing.”
