Georgia Adoption Agency in Lawrenceville GA
Georgia Adoption Family

"Through every step of our daughter’s adoption process, it was evident how much America World loves kids and families. From our social worker to family coordinator to in-country guide, we knew there was an entire team behind us, cheering us on through the finish line of bringing Tanvi home. Our family coordinator even prayed with us over the phone multiple times throughout the process. We are thankful for this agency that stood by our side from the very beginning, and we recommend their Georgia adoption services!"

- Julie Akin
