Frequently asked questions

Can you send me an Adoption Funding Application?

The Adoption Funding Application is only available online.

What are the qualifications for the Adoption Funding Program?

We consider both domestic and international private adoptions. Families can apply as soon as they have an approved application with a Hague accredited adoption agency. -You must be working with a 501c3 licensed, child-placing adoption agency. - You must be pursuing the adoption of an older child, a child with special needs or a sibling group. - A married couple (man and woman) or single person who profess a belief in the Christian faith.

Do families adopting a child through DSS qualify for adoption funding?

As most DSS adoptions are free, we do not raise funds for these adoptions. In addition, many adoptions through DSS also qualify for monthly financial assistance. Please see the following site for more information.

When will we be notified that we have been accepted?

You will be notified of acceptance within 30 days of submitting your application. However, we will normally process your application within 1-2 weeks upon receiving your completed application.

Do we have to be matched with a child?

You do not have to be matched with a child to receive adoption funding. While Connected Hearts has focused on helping children who are often overlooked for adoption (children with special needs, older children and children in sibling groups), we will temporarily be opening our fundraising program to adoptions beyond these 3 groups. We will be allowing all families who are in the adoption process to apply to be part of our program. Families will still go through the application process, but it is our hope that we can help alleviate some of the burden to adopting families during this time.

Can we submit an application for adoption funding before we have an agency?

No, before applying you must be working with a licensed, child-placing agency and you must have a completed (or updated) home study and be matched with a child.

How is the money distributed?

We will send a check directly to your agency. Please note that we do not send checks directly to families.

What happens if my adoption falls through?

If your adoption does not take place, any funds raised on our site will be distributed to other families on our family listings page.
