“It is important to realize we adopt not because we are rescuers.

No. We adopt because we are rescued.”

- David Platt 

Adoption Services 

AGAPE's adoption ministry partners with Christian families to provide forever homes for vulnerable children.  Through the home study process, AGAPE workers will identify your family's strengths and give you the tools to best care for your child.  By opening your heart and home, you will not only be caring for a child but you will have the privilege of ministering to an entire family. 


AGAPE offers domestic and international adoption services.  Contact an AGAPE social worker to begin your adoption journey today.
