Children need a good home.
There are many children in the St. Louis area who are born into circumstances that lead to them needing another family to care for them. So many children are waiting for permanent homes: older children, sibling groups, minority and medically fragile children. For these kids there just aren’t enough families willing to adopt. There are also young parents unprepared to care for a child who have made the difficult decision that it would be best for their child to grow up in an adoptive home. Because of that loving decision, many children have been brought together with families who have waited years for such an opportunity.
CFS is actively seeking Christian couples and families of all ethnicities to provide loving and capable homes for the children we place for adoption. Our staff of caring and knowledgeable professionals is here to answer your questions and guide you through the home study process. If you are adopting independently, internationally or domestically in Missouri or Illinois or from an agency that is not licensed in Missouri or Illinois, our staff can work with the attorney or child-placing agency of your choice in order to compile a home study that meets your specific adoption’s requirements.
If you are seeking to adopt through CFS and live in Missouri and Illinois, CFS will conduct your home study. If you seek to adopt through CFS we will help to ensure that the local home study provider you have selected matches CFS’ standards and requirements. Call our office for more information, to speak to an adoption specialist, or to request an application. An adoption specialist will guide you through the home study process step by step so that you will know what to expect and feel confident in your knowledge and preparation for adoption.
