Why Adopt through LCFS?


Are We Ready to Adopt?

These are things to consider when thinking about adoption:

  • For what reasons are we considering adoption?
  • Because it may take a long time, are we prepared to wait?
  • What are the costs involved in adopting and parenting a child?
  • Are there any unresolved issues (such as infertility)?
  • Would we consider adopting a child with special needs?

Types of Adoption

Domestic Adoption

Domestic Adoption

Grow your family and adopt a newborn!

We act as the go-between and guide to both the birth parents and adoptive parents every step of the way. The goal of this process is to give aid, relief and support to someone experiencing a crisis pregnancy, to grow a waiting family with the gift of a new baby, and to give that baby the possibility of a brighter future.


International Adoption

International Adoption

LCFS works with established international adoption agencies to help adoptive families locate infants available for adoption. Through such partnerships, LCFS facilitates international connections across the world.

With guidance and support, adoptive parents provide permanency for children living in understaffed orphanages and foster homes. The goal is that these children will be placed with loving, “forever” families that are supported by their family and community.


Relative Adoptions

When a parent asks a relative to assume the full responsibilities of parenting, adoption may be considered. These adoptions often formalize or make permanent a family arrangement that already exists for the child.


Stepparent Adoptions

In some marriages, there may be children from a previous relationship who have an absent or neglectful biological parent. In such situations, a stepparent adoption might be appropriate. In court, the parental rights of one biological parent are terminated. Afterward, a separate court hearing allows the stepparent to legally adopt the child. Stepparent adoption is a good idea because it protects the rights of the stepparent and gives them the legal right to raise the child if something should happen to the biological parent. It also gives a child the message that the stepparent wants to make their relationship permanent and legal.
