Iowa Adoption Agency in Indianola, IA
South Carolina Adoptive Family

"America World's South Carolina adoption service was a dream to work with! From the beginning, we knew God had a specific girl picked to be our daughter and America World did everything they could to help that become reality. They were so easy to work with and explained the process to us well. They were with us through each step from start to finish, as well as post-adoption! If God calls us to adopt again, we would definitely use America World!"

- Lindsey McMakin
