“We are so incredibly thankful for the gift of this adoption grant.  Adoption, while it is amazing, can be very expensive.  We have decided to open our family to the option of siblings which comes with more financial stress.  The generous gift of this grant goes a long way in helping relieve these financial burdens for our family. “

We are so immensely grateful for the grant we were given by Beauty Amidst the Ashes! When we found out we were matched with twins, we were so excited, but also fearful about the financial implications of adopting two at the same time. Our grant from BATA has helped in our journey of bringing home our boys, and we cannot express our thankfulness and gratitude for this wonderful blessing!”

"The importance of the Beauty Amidst The Ashes Adoption Grant Program is imperative for adoptive families and the children entering their home. During our adoption processes beginning over 25 years ago, programs like this were not readily available.  I cannot appropriately express how important it is for families now to be blessed with financial help during one of the most important time in a child's life. To be able to focus less on finances and more on integrating a new addition into their home is huge. Please consider giving into this program.  Your gift will change the life of a child."

"Justification in Christ is legal language.  Adoption in Christ is family language.  Adoption grants provide the opportunity for all of God’s people to participate in His family work.  The most common obstacle to adoption is funding.  Some people are called to generously give money and pray.  Others are called to generously give homes and pray.  Beauty Amidst the Ashes provides every Christian the opportunity to align our hearts with our Heavenly Father’s heart for the fatherless, in the name of Jesus Christ."
