We are excited that you are choosing to view ECFA’s Adoption Program. According to God’s Word, we are often admonished to care for the orphan and the fatherless. Adoption provides many opportunities to demonstrate God’s love. First and foremost it is the opportunity to love and nurture a child and teach them about their Father in Heaven. Please take a moment to review the various opportunities to adopt and to consider which way God is directing you.
Orientation: This is an in-person “informational meeting” that introduces you to the adoption process and the types of adoptions that are available to you.
Home Study: The home study takes approximately 2-3 months, and includes, but is not limited to, a minimum of 2 office visits and 2 home visits, background checks, references, and adoption training.
Waiting: This phase may appear to be the most difficult, but God is at work preparing you and your child.
Post Placement Services: Home visits and reports are completed, based on state or international requirements.
