About Adoption in Arizona

At Christian Family Care we see adoption as a blessing for both the child and their new family, a family who has been called to love them unconditionally throughout their life and model for them the great love of our heavenly father.

At CFC we are committed to placing children with parents who can best meet the child’s needs. Our main requirement is that adoptive parents be willing to make a lifelong commitment to nurture and care for the child in a loving, Christ-centered family.

To get started, submit an adoption inquiry form here.

What makes Christian Family Care different?

Christian Family Care goes above and beyond what the State of Arizona requires

Christian Family Care wants to ensure adoption is the right choice for both the adoptive parents and birth parents.

CFC provides support services to the adoptive parents that many attorneys do not provide. The home study process prepares and equips families to be adoptive parents. Our professional staff will then continue to provide educational and support services for families and children after the adoption has been completed.

For birth parents, we offer counseling, help with medical care, housing, pregnancy-related expenses, and post-adoption support.

Why adopt in Arizona?

Virtually every race and socioeconomic group have children waiting to become part of loving families. At this time, CFC does not arrange out-of-state adoptions simply because there are many children who need to be adopted by caring families right here in Arizona.

Which type of adoption is right for you?

Older adoptable youth in our foster child adoption program include sibling groups and children with physical and emotional disabilities. They often wait longer to find a permanent home, but the rewards for parents called to open their hearts and adopt a foster child are tremendous.

Don’t miss our next free 90-minute orientation session on Understanding Adoption: The School Age Child! Visit UnderstandingAdoption.org to see our schedule.

Our infant adoption program also places babies of varying ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Some may have special needs, substance exposure, or a family history of health issues and desperately need the blessing of a loving family.
