We are currently in the process of adopting a child from Ethiopia, and we are
excitedly working through the mounds of paperwork to bring our child home! As many of
you know, the financial considerations are significant and will cost us around $30,000.
Our agency, America World Adoption, has a program called the “Eternal Family Program”
which enables family and friends to contribute toward the cost of our adoption. Of
course, we present this to you as an opportunity and not an obligation. If you feel led to
partner with us financially, America World will accept contributions on our behalf and will
provide a letter or email to you which will substantiate that the funds have been received
by AW. Regarding tax deductibility, America World suggests that the amount claimed as
a tax deduction, if any, should be discussed with a tax professional.
You can contribute either by check or credit card. Checks can be made payable to
America World Adoption Association or just AWAA. Both the check and the included
“Eternal Family Program” form should be sent directly to America World Adoption
Association, Attn: Accounting Dept. 6723 Whittier Ave., Suite 202, McLean, VA 22101.
Credit card contributions can be made online at
https://www.awaa.org/give/eternal_family_program.aspx using the designation fields to
indicate the Eternal Family Program and our family.
Thank you for considering partnering with us financially. We understand that not all are led
to give financially, but we do ask everyone to join us in prayer through this process. We
cannot wait to bring our child home!
