adoption family support


ACT is anchored in God’s promise in Isaiah 42:

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up"

ACT (Adoption Coaching and Training) is a ministry of America World Adoption providing adoption support to families through training, support groups, and individualized coaching.  We recognize that parenting is not easy, and we are here to stand with adoptive families, offering Christ-centered guidance as we work together to prepare for adoption and heal our children with a history of loss and trauma.  Our staff, trained in TBRI® and other adoption competencies, are ready to lead and assist you with compassion and professionalism.  Explore our services in the links below, and reach out to us today for a free consultation to make a plan to meet your needs.


Get one-on-one coaching sessions with one of our experienced adoption professionals. These coaching sessions can be focused on behavioral struggles, post-adoption depression, learning to connect with your child, and more.

Support Groups

Join us for our support groups. It's a great way to connect with families, via video conferencing, who are experiencing the same issues and concerns as you. Our experienced, professional staff members will be there to guide conversations and provide support.


Referral Training Calls (RTC) and Travel Calls are ways that our staff connects with America World families in preparing for their child and their travel stage. Find a training session that will help you and your family.


Our Resources page provides adoptive families with a growing number of ways to learn and grow through the adoption process and beyond.
