What’s New at America World?
We want you to stay current with all that is happening at America World because there is always so much going on. We don’t want you to miss anything!
Here is a rundown on the America World calendar:
The Gatherings are designed to celebrate adoption, build community, and collaborate ways we can impact more vulnerable children and families together.
Each event is unique but will include food and beverages…and lots of fun! An America World staff member or two will also be there to share updates on what is happening at America World Adoption and how you can partner with us. We would love to meet you and your family!
We have already held The Gatherings in a few states and would love to see you and your family join us in Texas, California, Washington, DC/Virginia, and Florida! Visit The Gatherings page to learn more and register!
One Orphan Mission Trips
We’ve seen many teams already return from life-changing trips already, but more at still scheduled for 2018 (and already 2019!). The team above just returned from Kyrgyzstan. Mission teams are coming and going throughout the year, so we encourage you to consider joining us on a trip to India, Haiti, Uganda, Ethiopia, and others coming soon. If you missed the recent blog post about 14-year-old, Grant, and his story about visiting Uganda with his mom be sure to read it here! Mission trips are truly changing lives—lives of orphans and the lives of those who serve. Visit our One Orphan Mission Trip pages today!
Offices Near You
America World has served thousands of families in all 50 states and even expatriates around the world. Additionally, we serve families in more than 20 states with home study services, post-adoption reporting, and post-adoption support for any families needing extra care after their adoption. In those states, our Directors of Social Services (DSS) are there locally to assist. Whether is it a home study or a full adoption through America World, they are called to assist. And we have some of the best, most caring team anywhere! We encourage you to reach out to our DSS’s if your church or group needs adoption information, someone to talk about the adoption process or assist with adoption-related services. Visit our Home Study Services page and click on your state to contact one of our 20+ local offices around the country!

As always, America World is looking for families who are called to adopt. There are children in India, China & Haiti who are waiting to be called “son” or “daughter” and need a family. One example is a recent post about “Miley”, a sweet little girl with Down syndrome who would thrive in a family where she was loved and cared for.
Please continue to be a champion for the cause of orphans around the world who simply need to belong.
