Extra Adoption Grants Available April 2015, Year-Round Support

At WACAP, we know that there are families out there who would move forward with adoption if the costs weren’t so high. More than being just “qualified” to adopt a child, these families are also uniquely capable of loving, nurturing, protecting and meeting the needs of a child. But that initial hurdle of adoption costs discourages many from the process.

With this in mind, we are delighted to report that recent donations to WACAP are helping us make an even bigger impact … and bring more children home. If you, or someone you know, has thought about adoption but didn’t pursue it because of cost, we encourage you to take a look at our waiting child page.

Many of our children are regularly assigned grants that will reduce the costs of adoption for families. With these recent donations, even more grant dollars have been assigned to specific children. (On the waiting child page, look for a designation in red that says “Extra Grant Assistance.”)

There's a range of support we'd be happy to talk with you about year-round, so don't hesitate to let us know your questions -- even if grant availability or circumstances change.
