OUR STORY

All Blessings International, Inc., began as “Kentucky Adoption Services” in the basement of founder Lucy Armistead’s home in 2002. ABI soon grew to become a well-known and well-respected adoption service provider. With ABI’s growth came new horizons, and today ABI is licensed in four states: Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, and Tennessee. ABI also provides child placement services to families throughout the United States.

In 2008, ABI received the designation of being a Hague Accredited Agency, and in 2006, agency founder Lucy Armistead received the Congressional Angel in Adoption Award. As the number of children and families ABI serves continues to grow, our professional commitment to nurture each relationship with our clients remains a priority. We have been truly blessed by God, and are humbled that He has chosen to use ABI to enrich the lives of children and families around the world.

All Blessings International believes in the innate worth of every individual child and seeks to assist the children of the world by helping build families through adoption and providing humanitarian aide to children in need.  It is this organization’s firm belief that every child has a right to grow up in a family where he or she is loved, nurtured, protected, and appreciated for his/her unique individuality.  ABI is a Christian agency founded in the firm belief that God tremendously loves all children, regardless of race or national origin.

INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION

Millions of children throughout the world are in need of loving homes. ABI assists families as they travel the journey of international adoption and provide a loving home for a child.

Many of these programs are open to families residing throughout the United States.
