“Trustworthy: able to be relied on to do or provide what is needed or right, dependable, reliable.” For over 35 years CFS has been that trustworthy resource for both birth and adoptive families. Adoption is a life-changing event and often a frightening prospect when not much is known about it. Expectant parents are always treated in a non-pressured, warm and supportive manner that respects the tough decisions they are facing and honors their commitment to make a good plan for their baby. If adoption is the choice they believe is best, they can choose and meet the adoptive parents and decide what type of ongoing relationship they want. Caring support to birthparents doesn’t end at placement but continues long after if desired.
To adopt a child also requires much consideration. Fears are normal but with education and support and reminders that God is ultimately the designer of their family, adoptive parents can safely navigate their journey to parenthood as well. CFS received Hague accreditation in 2012 and this allows us to provide home studies and post-placement supervision for international adoptions as well. Many families have listened to the call to care for the orphan and have seen God enrich their families with children from the United States but also all over the world.
