Over the past 10 years, Your Adoption Finance Coach has had the honor to work with more than 6,000 prospective adoptive parents. We have assisted them with budgeting, receiving grants and loans, planning successful fundraisers, and understanding the Adoption Tax Credit.

This month, we want to spotlight a family we worked with in 2020, soon after the pandemic was shutting much of the country down. Luke and Kimberly, who live in New York City, learned about a birth mom in Florida who selected them to parent her baby – just a few weeks before the baby was due to be born.

Luke joined one of our “Boot Camp Webinars” and then contacted one of our coaches soon thereafter. We asked them to share their experience.

When your adoption attorney gave you our information, what did you expect?

LUKE: Quite honestly, we weren’t expecting much when we learned about Your Adoption Finance Coach. I assumed there would be some kind of fee to use your services, and even then, we weren’t sure what we might receive in return. I was so surprised and relieved to learn that your fees were covered by the fees we’d already paid our attorney.

What was your experience like working with Your Adoption Finance Coach – how were we able to assist you? 

LUKE: Up until we began working with YAFC, we had found the adoption process thoroughly overwhelming (emotionally, logistically, and especially financially). We attended the first webinar and were pleasantly surprised; and then had a great experience working our own personal coach.

Our experience with YAFC was incredible and you guys are absolutely THE FIRST organization we will mention when someone tells us they’re planning to adopt. Our coach was informative and patient, guiding us expertly through each step of the grant application process, no matter how trivial the question.

And most importantly, your help resulted in us receiving a grant! We can’t thank YAFC enough; our adoption would have been very difficult without you.

Guiding and Supporting Families Through the Financial Hurdles of the Adoption Journey

It was our pleasure to help Luke and Kimberly. We’ve enjoyed seeing the pictures they have shared of Baby Lennox as he has grown over the past year.

We know that adoption is complicated! There are many plates spinning at the same time. Our famous line, “paperwork, politics, and finances” – it’s all too true!

We created Your Adoption Finance Coach to help families like YOU raise the money you need to complete your adoption journey and bring your child home. We consider it a privilege to work closely with families on such a personal journey and we’d welcome the opportunity to assist you.
