North Carolina Adoptive Family

"We are so happy that God led us to use America World's North Carolina adoption services for our initial adoption from China. They were extremely helpful through every step of the paperwork, preparation, and trip to get our first daughter, and we eagerly chose them again to facilitate our second adoption in Haiti. To this day, we still cherish the bonds that we had with our family coordinators and in-country associates that made this process so enjoyable. Our family would not be what it is today without their love and prayerful support for us along this journey."
