Adopting a child through Dillon International’s Waiting Child program just got easier.
Through donor support, Dillon has added grants of $1,000 to $2,000 toward the adoption of selected Waiting Children.
Additionally, grants have been added to cover the International Fee for ALL Waiting Children from Hong Kong.
“We don’t want money to ever stand in the way of a child having a family,” said Waiting Child coordinator Kimberly Alls. “We hope these grants help children come home.”
The children selected for grants were chosen based on the length of time they have been waiting, a short deadline for the child to be designated to our agency, or the child’s degree of special needs.
The new grants for these waiting children do not change a family’s ability to apply for further financial assistance. That option is still available for all Dillon families through the Building Families Fund.
