Adoption Scams

We have seen many episodes of adoption scams here in the US.  They are becoming more frequent because people are taking advantage of the compelling desires of potential adoptive parents to parent.  We are seeing far to many recently. Do your research on your adoption professionals.   Please educate yourself and beware of scams such as this shown on CNBC and this one as well featured in the Idaho State Journal

Gift of Adoption

Imagine the heartache of growing up alone without the safety and love of a family to call your own.

Consider the longing and desire you would have for something so fundamental and vital, yet so terribly out of your own reach.

Discover The Gift of Adoption Fund, a national charitable organization that inspires adoption by providing grants to qualified parents – giving children who need families a permanent home and a chance to thrive.

Through The Gift of Adoption, you can make adoptions happen. Even if you can’t open your home, you can open your heart and transform the life of a deserving child.
