We are well organized in each country where we assist families in adopting. Our work is based on relationships that have been established for many years throughout the world.

Our US team members have all been connected to the adoption word for many years. Many of us have children from a variety of countries Our international offices are located in Beijing and Guangzhou, China, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; with representatives in Colombia and Bulgaria. The well-trained, caring and bi-lingual staff members within these counties are able to assist in processing paperwork and more importantly, to meet and accompany the adoptive families the entire time length of their stay. We understand the complexity of adopting internationally; therefore we have chosen bi-lingual staff who demonstrates competent and caring traits.

Good Shepherd Children & Family Services

Saint Louis, MO 63130 | (314) 854-5720

We value the life of a child from the time of conception to adulthood. Each child deserves to be a member of a caring family. Family can be defined in many ways. Our definition of family begins with a child and one caring adult. We strive to instill hope for the future in all of our children and families. In fact, we must be the "keeper” of hope for children who are often unable to imagine an end to the trauma and pain they’ve experienced. We embrace a positive culture in which all staff act as shepherds of the youth in our care, taking opportunities every day to guide them toward their goals, allowing them to see possibilities in the world around them and make the most of the gifts they have been given. Adoption services are provided for children from infancy to adolescence with a growing emphasis on placing older children and sibling groups. Our goal is to help children of all ages become permanent members of safe, loving families.
