History of Generations Adoptions

Generations Adoptions Embryo Adoption

Embryo Adoption

Generations Adoptions, a division of Nightlight Christian Adoptions is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) adoption agency licensed by the state of Texas to provide adoption services. Opened in July 2004 by our founder Cathy Sones, Generations Adoptions began offering domestic infant adoption services to birth and adoptive families across the state of Texas. Through 2016, we placed 167 children for adoption through our Domestic program. On April 1, 2008, Generations achieved Hague Accreditation from the Council on Accreditation (COA) to offer international adoption programs in Mexico, Uganda, Ghana, and Cameroon. We placed 44 children through these programs through 2016.

In January 2017, Generations Adoptions merged with Nightlight Christian Adoptions, a long time partner agency to Generations. Through this merge we are thrilled to offer adoption services for Domestic and Embryo Adoption. We also have 15 country programs to offer for International Adoption. Nightlight Christian Adoptions has offices in California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas.


Mission Statement

Our mission is to share God’s love by:

  • Helping children, both domestic and international, to find loving families
  • Assisting birthparents and genetic parents in making a wise and loving plan for their child’s future
  • Preparing families to be committed and effective parents to adoptive children
  • Recognizing and advocating the personhood of pre-born children


Statement of Faith

Generations Adoptions, a division of Nightlight Christian Adoptions believes that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures and arose bodily from the dead, and that He ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of God He is now our Lord and Savior. We believe that the Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all Christian faith and life.
