Inspiring Adoption Story & Video

I am sure that many of you have been inspired by various adoption stories; and for some of you, these stories may have led your family to adopt.  We would like to share a compelling adoption story and video link of the Richt family’s adoption process. Many of you may be familiar with this family’s name as Mark is the head football coach at the University of Georgia  and also starred in the movie ‘Facing the Giants’.  Mark and his wife, Katharyn, are an inspiring Christian family who recently completed a special needs adoption and their adoption story shares an incredible message. 

Like the Richt family, America World and many of our families have a passion to see Special Need’s Children find a forever family. We currently have a need for families who are interested in adopting older children (including healthy children), boys, or children with various special needs. Families interested in the China Waiting Children Program (WCP) are encouraged to contact their Family Coordinator or to email the China Waiting Children program at Family Coordinators will provide your family with details about the program and the WC adoption process and answer any questions that you may have.

We hope that you will you to watch this video and be inspired by the difference  one family can make in the life of a special needs orphan.


Sharing Your Family’s Adoption Story

America World would like to be able to share your adoption stories with other families through our blog. If your family has a webpage/blog, video link of your “gotcha dayâ€, or photos that you would like to share with us, please contact your Family Coordinator for more information. We would love to highlight your family’s blog/website, photos, or “Gotcha Day†videos for other families who are considering adoption or are currently  in the adoption process.
