Most Inclusive Adoption Grant Program: HelpUsAdopt.org

From Forbes:

When Becky Fawcett and her husband pursued adoption twelve years ago, she quickly learned that the adoption process was suited for families defined as “a white woman married to a white man who worshiped a certain way and planned to adopt a certain way.” Fawcett didn’t accept this definition of family and was frustrated that more adoption agencies weren’t empowering families, including single and LGBTQ parents, to build the families they envisioned.

Feeling frustrated, Fawcett directed her energy into writing a business plan “for the nation’s only non-discriminatory adoption grant program that does not define family, does not define religion, does not define adoption and does not charge an application fee.” The result is HelpUsAdopt.org, founded 2007.
