Good News! Finally, in Mama’s arms: A CMomA Grant Recipient UNITED with her Child from the Congo
The CMomA Gifting Program Objective is to give up to ten $5,000 CMomA Grants per year to eligible new parents adopting older children in need (age 3-17) or special needs children of all ages, both domestically and internationally.
CMomA grant eligibility is based on nine factors for PAPs (Prospective Adoptive Parents):
- Compelling story, for a childless woman, man, or couple choosing to become parents to a child in need.
- Compelling reason regarding the need for grant:
- The “Why”: (i.e. temporary job loss, medical needs of the child, etc.)
- The “Where”: (i.e. where will your grant money go: agency fees, special needs support, travel support, sibling adoption, waiting child adoption, etc.)
(Please note: Grant moneys do not go directly to the recipient, but rather directly to where it is needed, such as agency, medical, travel, etc.)
- Completed and approved home study, verifying that individual or couple is financially solvent enough to support a child or children.
- Compelling story of the child or children that are being adopted.
- Willingness to share beneficial impact of CMomA Grant via written note, video, or appearance at live CMomA event.
- Willingness to receive and complete our CMomA Parenting Course, currently in development.
- Willingness, if grant is a direct result of a $5,000 CMomA Grant Donor, to give CMomA permission to disclose contact information to foster a potential connection between Grantor and Grant Recipient.
- Willingness to become a buddy to a waiting or newly united family.
- Verification that the child being adopted is a double orphan either through the death of both parents or parents having lost or forfeited their parental rights (proof of informed consent if applicable).
