November is National Adoption Month!!! 

While we celebrate our families and kiddos every month, November is a great time to share about adoption with others throughout our communities! In honor of National Adoption Month, we are thrilled to be able to offer a $1,000 grant to any qualified family who applies and contracts during the month of November. Please spread the word
with your friends and communities!!
Giving Tuesday is coming December 1!

This year we are asking MAA’s supporters to give to MAA’s expanding Post Adoption services, including support groups for parents and adoptees, counseling, trainings and more. Watch for an email on December 1 with more details, or head to MAA’s Donations page now to set up a recurring gift to support our work all year long.
A few reminders for all families in the Post Adoption Reporting phase!

Please remember it is required by the CCCWA to type your answers when filling out the self-report template provided. On occasion, we receive reports that are handwritten. While we appreciate all efforts, the CCCWA has threatened to kick back reports if they are handwritten. We imagine it is harder for them to translate and process.

And we no longer require hard copy pictures to be mailed with your report. Save your paper, ink and time! We hope one less step makes this process easier on all of you.
We also urge any families who are overdue on their reports, to please get caught up before the years end, if not before. This helps us remain in the good graces of the CCCWA in order to place more children with their forever families!
We appreciate your cooperation.
We are so blessed to announce these families are FINALLY home from Colombia in October!
If you are not in a position to adopt right now, but still feel compelled to help, please know that you can always make a donation directly to Madison Adoption Associates. Your generous gift will be directed where it is needed most, whether that be to provide food and medical services to vulnerable children both domestically and internationally, to support MAA’s growing therapeutic support services for adoptive and foster families, to help ease the financial burden for adoptive families, and/or many other areas where MAA serves deserving children. So please – consider making a tax-deductible donation today, so that children around the world may have a chance for a brighter tomorrow.
