Adoption FAQs

Adoption FAQs

What are your requirements?
Prospected adopted couples must be married for a minimum of two years, have no more than two biological children and be no younger than the age 21 or older than age 45. All prospected adoptive parents must be actively involved in a Christ-centered church of their choice.Do couples have to be infertile to adopt through your agency?
We have many couples that have biological children and choose to expand their families via adoption.

How long will we have to wait to get a baby?
That is a difficult question to answer. Because the birth family selects the adoptive family, there is no “Waiting List.” Some of our prospective adoptive families have received a child less than two weeks after approval and others have waited considerably longer.

Can we choose our child’s gender?
No.

What are the ages of the children available for adoption?
A majority of the children placed for adoption are infants. However, we have facilitated placements for older children.

Do you place with couples that live out of state?
Yes! We are licensed in every state but Arkansas.

What is the difference between open, semi-open and closed adoptions?
A fully open adoption involves ongoing contact/visits without the agency as mediator. This type of relationship may evolve over time, usually beginning as a semi-open adoption.

A semi-open adoption means you stay connected to with your child through letters and pictures via the agency and may also include visits with the agency as mediator.

In a closed or confidential adoption, there is no exchange of identifying information and the birth and adoptive families do not meet one another. Closed adoptions are only facilitated at the request of the birth family and are very rare.
