A Letter From Our Founder

Theresa_kidsThe process you are about to begin is going to change your life, and the life of a child forever. How do I know? I was once exactly where you are; excited, but a little overwhelmed by the thought of adopting a child internationally. After taking the leap of faith four separate times, I now have four beautiful children. Sarah, Michael, Emily and Claire have changed my life forever in ways more beautiful than I could ever have imagined.

When I look at my children I forget the mountain of paperwork that is a natural part of any international adoption. I can think only of the joy that they bring to my husband and me, and the future that we will all have together. In order to share that feeling and bring hope to more children, I started Grace International Adoption Agency.

Why Grace International Adoption Agency?

I knew when I started Grace International that I wanted it to be a different kind of adoption agency. I wanted it to be focused on you, your family, and the children who are about to enter your lives. I wanted Grace International to possess a family feel, so there were a few things I felt were critically important:

Limited International Adoptions

We strictly limit our adoption services to 120 families a year.  This is with the goal of individualized attention, we focus on your adoption so you can focus on the changes and happiness about to enter your life. Our experienced adoption team will take you by the hand and guide you step-by-step, all the way to a successful adoption.

We are available 7 days a week and all of our prospective adoption families get my personal cell phone number in case of an emergency.

Direct Relationships With Our International Adoption Teams

We set up our experienced and dedicated teams who live in the country you are adopting a child from. We receive the latest information about the progress of your adoption. This strong personal relationship allows us to avoid problems, individualize your adoption and move the adoption process as smoothly and quickly as possible.

We Never Forget The Children Who Are Not Adopted

We never forget that for each successful adoption there are children who will not be adopted. As a non-profit adoption agency, Grace International helps support orphanages and foster programs for the children remaining behind.

So, please, come in and take a look around our site. Find out more about us and how we can help you with your adoption journey. Get comfortable, ask questions, and begin the process of building your family. I’d love for you to one day meet mine.

I wish you all the success on your journey!
