My favorite scripture is Ephesians 4:1 “Live a life worthy of the calling you have received.” Those words have been resonating in my heart for a long time, but I was unsure where God was leading me. After praying and waiting and seeing the doors that God was opening, we decided to take a leap of faith and start the Affording Adoption Foundation. My husband, Matthew and I have two kids who were adopted as infants from Guatemala and knew that our family was complete but still yearned to help other people either start or add to their families. That led to the beginning of the Affording Adoption Foundation in 2010.

mission & vision

Help more children find their forever families by providing financial assistance in the form of grants to prospective adoptive parents. 

Considering Adoption?

According to recent studies, more than 50% of Americans consider adoption, but say that the financial burden prevents them from adopting a child. 

Helping families afford adoption since 2010.
