May 2014
MAA's reduced application fee of $250 for new adoption cases has been extended through the end of May 2014!
  Madison Adoption Associates is expecting the referrals of many wonderful children as a result of our recent trip to China.  In order to be "paper-ready" to be matched with children with minor/correctable needs, we encourage families to begin the process now!!
Huainan Van Plan 
- Putting Kids on the Road to an Education -


Van Plan

As part of MAA's One-to-One Partnership Agreement with Huainan Social Welfare Institute in Anhui province, we are concerned with the education of the children.


At this time, the SWI has a large bus to transport the school children. However, there are not enough children to fill the entire bus, and often there is not enough money to pay for gas for the bus. When there is no money for gas, the children don't go to school.


In order to ensure that the children are able to attend school, MAA has committed to purchasing a van for the Huainan SWI.  The van will better fit the needs of the children and be more cost-effective for the SWI.  It's a WIN-WIN for everyone!


We ask for your help in supporting this Van Plan by clicking on the PayPal button below!  All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of all

donations will go toward this project.

Speaking of Huainan SWI... Madison Adoption Associates is expecting many referrals of children who have been part of the Love Without Boundaries programs.


We look forward to placing these wonderful children with families!  Like LWB on Facebook to stay posted on available children.

2014 Hosting Program  
Don't miss out on the opportunity to provide a life-changing experience for an older orphan from China.  If you are unable to host, you can help sponsor a child.

These precious boys still need a host family who lives in Illinois, Missouri, or Kentucky.

Please contact Michelle@MadisonAdoption.com if you would like more information.
Madison Adoption Associates is growing!  We are happy to now count the following four ladies as part of our team:

She graduated from York College of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor degree in Accounting and a minor in Finance.  Bev looks forward to providing support for MAA, its associates and families.
