Faith Based Adoption Services

Adopting a child is a decision that will ultimately involve body, mind and spirit. We all come from a frame of reference from childhood and know how important all three of those elements are in determining the choices we make. From a Christian frame of reference, the Bible tells us that God calls us to minister to orphans and widows and that if any of us even give a cup of water to a child, we will not lose our reward in heaven. With that injunction and belief system, adoption is done with not only a heart to bless a child with a loving, healthy home but also to be within God's purpose for our lives. Christians believe from the Bible that where God leads, He will provide.

Adoption is a venture that does involve financial resources. Through prayer and coming together with others to find creative solutions, the resources needed can be realized. Finally, God states in His Word that He has given us a spirit of adoption and as He has adopted us into His family, we know that we, in turn, can understand family from a broader perspective...ethnically, culturally and even loving neighbors as ourselves that may have different religious beliefs. Our Adoption agency seeks to be sensitive to those of the Christian faith as well as others.

We offer, for those interested, a Christian or faith-based approach to our adoption home study. The difference is the option of prayer in the process and encouragement from a faith perspective. Seeking God in the beginning honors the promises of God such as in Matthew 6:33 which is, 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all else will be added unto you'.

The adoption process can seem overwhelming as you first learn all that is needed but with a patient, skilled and experienced team that is sensitive to your needs in body, mind and spirit; many lives can be blessed with the opportunity to change the life of the child and perhaps be changed for the better in the process.
