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

She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Social Work from Florida State University. She has worked with both domestic adoptions and child protective services in her professional career. She is excited to work in international adoption, particularly placing orphans across the world in Christian families who will raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
