What races are the children available for adoption?

Generations Adoptions, a division of Nightlight Christian Adoptions has placed Caucasian, African American, Hispanic and biracial infants.

How long is the average wait for a child once a family is approved?

We cannot guarantee a placement nor the length of wait. However, we do purposely keep the pool of approved families large enough so that expectant mothers have a choice but small enough so that each family’s profile will be viewed regularly. Because adoptive families are chosen by expectant mothers, the wait is not able to be predicted. We have had some families wait as short as a month and our longest waiting family has waited over three years. The more open that a family is to races and health risks the more often the family’s profile may be shown to expectant mothers. Gender selection is not an option in our domestic infant program due to many factors surrounding the matching process. However, gender selection is possible in our international adoption programs.

Open vs. Closed Adoptions?

Generations Adoptions, a division of Nightlight Christian Adoptions works with prospective adoptive families who are open to having an open adoption with the expectant mother that God has for them.

Paying for Adoption?

Generations Adoptions, a division of Nightlight Christian Adoptions strives to keep fees low. When you adopt you will also be eligible for a Federal Adoption Tax Credit, of a maximum adoption credit and allowance of $13,400 per child, after the adoption which helps offset agency fees. Please see our Funding your Adoption page for more ways you can raise funds to cover the cost of your adoption.

Please note that there are other avenues of adoption that do not include fees such as “foster to adopt” and adoption through the state. There are many children waiting in need of a loving family, so contact us today to learn more about these options.
