What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born. ~Pearl S. Buck~

The Little Miracles Story
Little Miracles International was founded by Lori Scott in 1999 after a problem-free
Romanian adoption of a beautiful 4.5 year old girl in 1998.
"My life was so profoundly changed at what I saw and experienced in Romania and on the various other mission trips I had been to in other countries. I loved idea of helping others to adopt and at the same time also founded a non-profit humanitarian organization. All of this came quickly after we returned from our adoption. I could never get the children out of my thoughts. I HAD TO do something!"
It was going to take a miracle to help ALL these children. God called this mother to do more. If one person could help one child find their forever family, assist in medical, nutritional and emotional development, or support in prayer, many children would find their Little Miracle. Since our adoption journey in 1998, our agency has grown by leaps and bounds!
Our values and agency are based on adoptive parent experience in international adoption. We have tried to keep our fees as reasonable as possible, and we believe that every family and every adoption is unique. We believe that every family has a right to be involved and educated in their own adoption journey and we strive to provide superior services to our families, before, during and after the adoption. You will not be alone during this journey we will be with you and assist you and cry with you and laugh with you and celebrate with you when you are a forever family. We are committed to providing support, services and education to qualified families throughout the process, developing into a relationship of long-term guidance and support. We return calls, we answer e-mail promptly and we care about the families and the children we assist. In essence these families and children are OUR little miracles too!
What sets us apart from other agencies? First and foremost our service and committment to the family. We are adoptive parents and have walked this same path you will soon embark, and we have begun at the same place you will begin! Secondly we have affiliations with professional and highly experienced foundations and facilitators/coordinators in our programs who have finely tuned the intricacies of the international adoption process. Although the process is never exactly perfect, we strive to help you have a most memorable and pleasant adoption experience.
