Adoption Through ECFA

picture of couple with adopted childECFA is looking for more evangelical adoptive couples or families (without a completed home study) who would be interested in adopting a baby through our domestic healthy baby program. If you have infertility issues, one or no children, are involved in an evangelical church, reside in one of the 45 counties we serve, and would love to adopt a baby, please call Jill at 262-789-1881. She would be happy to talk with you!

Families and individuals adopt children for many reasons. Some couples are unable to have children biologically. Others may already have children but choose to adopt special needs children, older children, or orphans from other countries. All of these people share their desire to open their hearts and homes to waiting children. ECFA provides a general list of guidelines for prospective parents. For further information, call Jill at 262-789-1881 or email her at jillh@ecfawisc.org.

Since 1950, ECFA has placed more than 3000 children with loving families. ECFA was started by the National Association of Evangelicals as the first agency in the country to place children exclusively in evangelical Christian homes.

No child will ever be denied or delayed a placement based on their race, culture, or ethnicity, nor on that of the adoptive parent(s). ECFA makes every effort to recruit a variety of families to meet the needs each child may present. Please take a few moments to review our options for adoption.

Infant and Toddler

Children who are newborn to five years of age are included in this category. The children are from a variety of ethnic heritage. Although in some cases the birth mothers have used drugs or alcohol during part of the pregnancy, the children are usually considered medically healthy as far as can be determined.

Special Needs

Individual children or sibling groups of all ages and races may be available. Some have disabilities or medical conditions, while others may be older and have experienced abuse or neglect prior to becoming legally adoptable for this program.

Intercountry Adoption

Families may adopt children from a variety of countries. ECFA has strong ties to Christian adoption agencies which are approved in several other countries. A family may also introduce a country and agency to ECFA. In this case, ECFA will assist with the home study and/or post placement services.

Agency Assisted Adoption

ECFA is able to conduct your home study and provide post placement services. Many people have received our assistance with private placements or intercountry placements.
