No-fee adoption agency in Washington State
Filed under: Adoption
Can this really be true? An adoption agency that doesn't charge any fees?
I couldn't believe it either, but apparently this is for real. Antioch Adoptions is a non-profit adoption agency that operates under the umbrella of the Antioch Bible Church out of Redmond, Washington. According to its website, the agency raises money through donations to help it place children, mostly through foster care.
The only "catch" is that adoptive families must commit to giving back to the ministry through donations of their "time, talents, and financial resources." After reading some of their documentation of what is required from adoptive families, their program may not be for everyone--they require that families must attend one weekend retreat, among other things. However, the best way to find out about the program is to read through the material, where then you can make up your own mind.
