How did we meet

We recently took to social media to ask the question “how did we meet?” Many of our America World families and champions responded and some of the answers were too good to keep to ourselves. Some of the comments came from families who brought their children home more than 20 years ago! Enjoy a few testimonies from our friends and families.

“We were researching what path of adoption God was leading us to and found your India program thru a Bethany webinar. We decided to use AWAA for homestudy and program after that. We honestly had no idea what we needed from a program, in country support etc but God sure provided what we didn’t know we needed. We love AWAA and recommend them to anyone who asks!”

“I had been following a child’s file for years & advocating for him. I even tried to talk a friend into adopting him (she adopted another child instead). We finally decided to inquire about him ourselves and his file was with AWAA at the time I saw his photo pop up again. AWAA helped us adopt him and one of our other sons.”

“In 2012 His Little Feet Children’s Choir came to our church. One of the little boys from Ethiopia stayed in our home that weekend, his file was with American World. He came home forever in 2013. In 2016 we brought home another son from China.”

“Met with another agency and did not find it a good fit. Searched online and saw you were a Christian agency. I clicked right away with everyone I spoke with. They were all so supportive.”

“Internet search for Christian adoption agencies. While others looked good, America World was the only one that had God in the center (and in every nook and cranny) of its mission.”

“In 2004 We attended a Stephen Curtis Chapman/Casting Crowns concert. AWAA had a booth. My husband picked up a flyer and the rest is history.”

“We had been talking and praying about adoption for some time, when we attended a Casting Crowns concert and learned about AWAA. My mom and brother had passed away earlier that year and I didn’t think I was ready to start the process. My sweet hubby knew it was no mistake we were there at that exact moment and went to the AWAA table to get more info. Loads of research and prayer later, we knew AWAA was our agency and we’re so thankful for you all. Not only did we gain a son, but we gained dear friends, who are like family.”

“We researched several but chose AWAA because the asked us to sign a statement of faith and we were so glad they were about placing children in Christian home . We adopted twice from China using AWAA . We can never say enough about how helpful they were during paper work, waiting and travel!”

“A friend of a friend had adopted through America China Adoption Association and we were indirectly referred to you, when we started the process in 2000. With a lot of hand-holding and prayers, we brought home our first daughter, Kinsey, in 2001. In 2002, we started the process the second time around and reached out to what had by then become America World Adoption Association. We brought home our Karina in 2004. We could not have asked for a smoother process. We are grateful to this amazing organization, and the good Lord, every day.”

Our staff is honored to have assisted families in their adoption process for more than 25 years. Our prayer is that God grants us many, many more years of building families according to God’s design of adoption. If you are considering international adoption please click here to learn more today.
