Robert G. is an associate at Store #1077 in Tallahassee, Florida. He and his wife didn’t think they could have children of their own, so they started looking into adoption in 2006.
After a surprise baby girl in 2011, they still wanted to grow their family of three to a family of four.
In January 2018, Walmart announced a new adoption benefit. For associates who expand their family through adoption, the company will help cover eligible adoption costs up to $5,000 per child.
“We finally travelled to China in June 2018 to get our child. The $5,000 I got from Walmart literally paid for me and my wife to fly to China. It was extremely helpful,” said Robert.
