On August 1st, 1994 Brian and Renee Luwis traveled to China for the first time,
to hold and bring home their newly adopted daughter, Fei. After realizing that there
were still so many more orphans without homes, they decided to take action. Shortly
after returning from China, Brian and Renee began to create and build what is now
the America World Adoption Association — a ministry dedicated to sharing the belief
that one of God's most profound blessings is to experience a child by adoption.
Our Mission: America World is committed to helping America's families and the world's
orphans experience the love of God in Jesus through the "Spirit of adoption." We
are a Christ centered organization that values the right of every child to have
a family and believes adoption is a God ordained way to build a family. America
World is also devoted to actively supporting orphan awareness ministries and hopes
to spread the Spirit of adoption within the Christian community.
As an agency we offer service that is both personal and dependable. Our Family Coordinators
are trained to handle every detail of your adoption process and will begin to work
with you from the moment your application is approved. Your Family Coordinator works
closely with you throughout the entire process and is sensitive to the needs of
both you and your child. They will be by your side, as your main point of contact,
throughout your adoption process. We believe that nothing happens by accident and
if you decide to adopt though us we are confident that God will place just the right
child (or children) in your home.
