America World is excited to announce that Cole, Abigal and Katie have families pursuing their adoption! In addition to families pursuing these adoptions, congratulations to the 5 families who have accepted shared referrals in the month of November! We are excited for all of these families as they have submitted their acceptance paperwork and are closer to bringing their children home.
