  • Description
  • Founded in 1982, Christian Family Care Agency is a private nonprofit, 501(c)(3) social services agency that provides programs focused on meeting the needs of children and families in Arizona. CFC’s fundamental belief is that a nurturing family is vital to every child’s success. Hundreds of children that have come to CFC in crisis situations are now part of loving and caring families. Christian Family Care is licensed by the State of Arizona and accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) since 2002.
  • Adoption Process
  • Once the forms and application are submitted, a social worker begins meeting with the family to complete the home study process. This social worker interviews the family, receives necessary documents from them and other sources, and writes a home study. This process typically takes 60-90 days. Before, during, or after the home study process, the family attends one of the Adoption Education Classes to learn more about adoptive parenting. Once the family is certified to adopt and completes all classes, they are available for placement of a child. Birth parents typically select a family for their child by reviewing family profiles which prospective adoptive families have created to introduce themselves to birth parents. In most cases, birth parents wish to meet the prospective adoptive families before making a family selection. Prior to placement of a child, the birth and adoptive families mutually decide on the nature of their on-going relationship. CFC strongly advocates for fully-disclosed open adoptions whenever possible. After the birth parents finalize their adoption consents, the adoptive parents may sign placement papers and their petition to adopt. A three- to nine-month waiting period follows the filing of the petition. The social worker conducts periodic post-placement home visits until the adoption is finalized. The social worker then submits a final report to the Court prior to the hearing summarizing the child’s development and recommending the adoption be finalized. The adoption is finalized by the Court.
