American Adoptions Scholarship Fund

Like many of you, each year American Adoptions staff members look for ways to give back during the holidays. One way our organization is doing that this year is through a canned food drive for our local food bank, Harvesters. Annually, American Adoptions staff also supports and promotes the American Adoptions Scholarship Fund for Birth Parents. Since its founding in 2001, the Scholarship Fund has helped many women who have placed with us to continue their education.

Interest in continued education is often a reason that the women we work with choose adoption. The impact and hope a scholarship can create is amazing, and it can change the life of a birth mother, giving her a more positive overall adoption experience.

Please visit our scholarship page to learn more about the wonderful women this fund helps. Or watch the following video to hear the story of birth mother Samantha and the opportunities the scholarship has made available to her:
