Barbara L. Curtis Adoption Grants


Sadly, it is often perceived that children with Down syndrome are "less desirable" candidates for adoption.

Fortunately there are many families that see the truth -- the wonderful opportunity to forever change the life of a child with Down syndrome, while at the same time deeply enriching their own.


By breaking down financial barriers, we are forever changing lives. 


Who is Barbara L. Curtis?

Barbara Curtis was a tremendous writer and speaker, a beloved wife, and a loving mother to her twelve children. Her eighth son, Jonny, was born with Down syndrome. Barbara and her husband Tripp went on to adopt three more boys with Down syndrome. Barbara unexpectedly passed away in 2012. Her amazing legacy and example of loving and embracing life, and in a special way the life of the angels, continues after her passing. Along with her twelve children, there are fifteen grandchildren and counting!
