Adoption Requirements

Here’s what is essential.

  • Prospective parents must be a minimum of 24 years old and couples must have been married for a minimum of 3 years.

  • The husband, wife, or single parent must have steady employment and adequate income to support the family.

  • Prospective parents must have a home study completed by a representative of Christian Family Services, Inc., or another competent licensed agency.

  • All prospective parents must attend a one-day orientation seminar at CFS.

  • Prospective parents must have an active Christian Faith. Reference from those in leadership positions at your church will be required.

  • We do our best to match prospective birth and adoptive parents according to both the amount and kind of contact they desire both before and after placement of a child.  Occasionally these desires change over time.  CFS seeks adoptive families who are willing to correspond and send photos to birth parents at least annually until the child reaches 18 years of age.
