From their webpage at www.adoptionassistance.org: Adoption Assistance Agency exists to help children join families who will love, nurture, protect and embrace them for a lifetime. We believe it is our heavenly Father who creates families and we have seen Him faithfully create so many loving adoptive families. Our non-profit identity enables us to raise charitable funds to accomplish many signifant and worthwhile goals. The first is to defray the costs of birthmothers who plan an adoption and then change their mind. This enables the adoptive family to have their birthmother expense fee apply to another adoption, rather than losing that fee. In addition to helping children find their loving families, we strive to help families of limited means through charitable funds who can only have children through the expensive option of adoption . We offer nurturing, education, counseling, and support for families struggling to overcome challenges. We provide community education for those working with women so that women who become pregnant may have access to full information and make loving, life-giving choices for their children. Women and men who make the courageous and loving choice of placing their child for adoption through Adoption Assistance can receive counseling for issues related to the adoption until the child is 18 as long as the agency is in business. Additional details about our charitable programs can me found elsewhere on our website.
