Christian Agency in International Adoption
When looking forward to adopt internationally and you are carrying out your research one thing to look for is an ethical, knowledgeable and licensed Christian adoption agency.
Giving children who needs a home one is a wonderful thing to do and when you want to have your key to success you will need a Christian Adoption Agency. Before you can be successful in your initial search there are three things that you will need to know.
1. You will want to know what a Christian Adoption Agency is and why are they important. They are non-profit agencies that were established with the country to assist orphaned children in finding a home that they will get all the love and care they need.
Many of the Christian Adoption Agencies have a non-profit federal status. They normally provide equipment, staff training, personnel training and medical supplies and works with a specific set of orphanages. It is very important that you thoroughly research them. This can be done by visiting the federal government’s Hague Accreditation to see if they are a part of the Joint Council.
2. Once you have your eyes on about two or three agencies then you should investigate them by asking for names of people they have helped before and from there get a feedback to see the pros and cons with the agencies.
This is a good opportunity to find out if they would recommend the agency to someone else. It is also good to contact the State licensing agency to see if the licensing is current and in order along with if there have been any complaints.
Another option for complaint checking is the Better Business Bureau. If you are satisfied with everything it is ok to now ask for the fee schedules, paperwork and all the contracts that will be needed to conclude the arrangement.
3. Ensure that you do not sign documents unless you have read it thoroughly and understand all the details. Any legal document will stand in court and will affect you financially. The Christian Adoption Agency will be more than happy to sit with you and help you understand the commitment that you will be making with the international adoption agency and the child you will be matched with.
They will also walk you through the lengthy legal paperwork from the State Department of the US, give you pre and post reports to file with the country’s government office and also give you details about home studies.
Once you finally decide upon a Christian Adoption Agency there is no need to second guess if you have followed the above steps. All you need to do now is go through the steps to get the child you want.
