Friends...okay Adoption Ideas?

Hi Friends...

Wondering if any of you want to point us to an adoption agency.  We have been praying, but haven't found the right fit yet.  

We want to adopt an African American infant...gender...girl.  

We'd love connections and certainly your prayers.

We are home study ready, but may have to apply to our state for an additional waiver.  Seems that they think 6 children should be a family limit- our social worker has told us that the waiver form is in the mail and that it looks complicated and hard. sigh.


We KNOW that God sets the lonely in families
and that He is asking us to open our hearts once again.  


Psalms 68:5-6
“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in His holy dwelling, God sets the lonely in families . . .”

Friends of ours used IAN, international adoption net for their second Ethiopian adoption. If you'd like I can put you in contact with them. They used the same one that you and I used 2 yrs ago.

when I said, "put you in contact with them" I meant my friends.... I can't help you with IAN, I don't know them personally..... :-)

We are using WACAP this time around and I totally recommend giving them a call. We have had a good experience with them so far. I, obviously, don't have experience for the specific program, but they do have an African-American Infant program. Here's the link:

SO excited for you!! You deserve the joy of another BABY! :)

It should be your choice how many children you can feed and nurture. We have hit dead end after dead end trying to readopt here. FL says we have to readopt but no one seems to handle these cases.

Praying for God's will and God's way for this desire of your heart. I find it ironic that there are so many children who need to be adopted, yet roadblock after roadblock keep these children from getting into homes. Thank you to you and your adopting friends that spiritually blow through these roadblocks and open your hearts and homes to precious children.

This seems to be a very good adoption agency in the USA - have a look into it!

I'm not very familiar since we adopted through the state. We do have friends who adopted domestically through Bethany Christian Services. They also have an international program.

I don't know any adoption agency, but I just wanted to say that it's awesome you're opening your hearts and home to another little one!

We used the Crisis Pregnancy Outreach in Tulsa, OK for our domestic adoption and loved working with Cheryl. We have not been able to adopt domestically again because of the CO law that 8 is enough (which frustrates me to NO END). I talked with Cheryl not to long ago and they are always in need of families for bi-racial babies....

We have friends who adopted two African American children, however, they used an agency in California. Does this matter to you? I know they love their agency, I beleive it is a small Christian agency, and I could email her and ask which one it is if you are interested. Just let me know:)

Julie

p.s. We are praying about jumping in again to adopt. Also considering a domestic adoption this time:) Seems like we are always on the same page at the same time:)

Hey Kimmie if all else fails here is a great adoption agency (actually this would be my first choice, but you know me).

I think the road to anywhere worthwhile is a long and hard road with many pot holes but the destination is always more rewarding for the arduous journey. Good luck as always.

Julie said...

Hi Kimmie,

I responded to your email but I'm not sure if it went through.

Here is the information:
Nightlight Christian Adoptions
www.nightlight.org

My friend Stacy, who used them several times, also has a blog. You can visit her at
www.mycupoverfloweth.blogspot.com
and I am sure she would love to talk with you about anything.

Hope that helps.

God Bless,
Julie

Hello. I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now. I found it on the very day that I heard a sermon on Adoption and my Friend sent me a book on adoption! Just amazing! Anyway, I am coming out of lurky to let you know that I have had 3 friends in different parts of the United States adopt from Covenant Care out of Atlanta Geogia. All 3 have had wonderful experiences with the agency, the home inspections, and the finalizing. God Bless You on your journey. And, may GOd send you another little sweet baby to join your Family.

I also forgot to say that the restrictions look small and that the families that adopted that I know all had more than 4 and 5 Children. I hope this help you when you take a peak into their website. Blessings.

we adopted the 4th time through Heart to Heart Adoptions in Sandy, Ut. We already had 5 children and that did not matter. We matched in 2 months. We found out about our son on a Friday and he was born Tuesday - I got to be in the hospital room and witness his birth!! They are a great agency and they took very good care of us and the birth mom.

Hi kimmie, I know I'm over here & obviously don't know much about domestic adoptions over there, but I just wanted to say that I followed along the Wright families last adoption & now they are consultants - it was their ninth child. Not sure if it's any help, but their blog is: arethesekidsallyours.blogspot.com

Hi Kimmie - with my last comment I meant the eighth child (I had to go & check) - hope it helps
