About The Williams-Hall Family
My daughter, who is a toddler, has an atrial septal defect, which is a congenital heart condition in which there is a hole in the wall between the heart’s upper chambers or atria. This defect is commonly repaired through heart surgery which is either open-heart surgery or catheter-based repair, depending on the size and location of the defect. It is unclear which type of repair her heart will require. Following atrial septal repair, children are followed with regular echocardiograms and health check-ups to watch for possible complications. After receiving the referral, I conferred with a physician at the University of Washington Medical Center, Center for Adoption Medicine, who had reviewed all of my child’s available medical records. After that conference, I decided to accept the referral and to ensure she receives whatever medical intervention is necessary to improve the chances that she will thrive.

What is a Brittany's Hope Adoption Grant?
Brittany’s Hope believes in the fundamental right of all children to have the security and love of a family. There are an estimated 153 million orphans living around the world (UNICEF – 02/2011). These staggering statistics are heartbreaking considering a large number of these children are special needs, who have little or no value in the eyes of their own country. They are left to languish in institutions, where they receive minimal care and live hopeless, helpless lives.
The cost of international adoption can be overwhelming and is only further compounded by the medical and accessibility costs a child with special needs presents. Our Adoption Grant Program provides grant monies while giving families the opportunity to assist Brittany’s Hope in raising funds so the next child may also be united with their forever family. The phrase “It takes a village to raise a child,” takes on new meaning as the “seeds” of the adoptive family’s friends, family and neighbors take root and help provide future families with adoption grants. With a gift to Brittany’s Hope, a donor’s monetary support of the Adoption Grant Program means double for the adoptive family.
