  • Description
  • Covenant Care Services is a state licensed, non-profit Christian adoption agency that has been providing adoption services to women, children and families in Georgia since 1989. Our State Administrative Office is in Macon, and we have staff strategically located throughout Georgia so that we can meet our clients where they are. At Covenant Care Services we approach adoption as a Gospel ministry. We work to serve women, children, and adoptive families with excellence and in a way that is informed and shaped by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want the quality of our services and the motivations that drive us to be distinct from other social service providers because of our faith in Jesus. As Christians, we believe that our understanding of what physical adoption ought to look like is informed and shaped by what God has already done for us in the Gospel. Scripture tells us that, “In love [God] predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ,” and that the entire reason for Jesus’ life and ministry was “so that we might receive adoption as sons” (Ephesians 1:4-5; Galatians 4:5). The concept of adoption is something that originated with God Himself! Such a magnificent foundation has tremendous implications for how we work to enable the adoption of children. When you choose to work with Covenant Care, you are choosing an adoption agency that keeps these grand truths at the center of all that we do.
  • Adoption Process
  • Step 1. Contact the Covenant Care office to request a Pre-Application packet. Return the completed packet to Covenant Care, including a signed “Statement of Faith,” “Pro-Life Statement” and “Church Concurrence Form”. Step 2. Prospective Adoptive Families are required by Georgia law to have criminal background clearances from the GBI and the FBI. All other household members 18 and over are also required to complete these clearances. Please wait for instructions from our office personnel concerning this procedure. You will be contacted once your Pre-Application has been processed; please complete the process immediately as it can take weeks or months to process with the FBI. Step 3. Attend a Covenant Care Training Sessions with approximately 10 to 15 other families to understand more thoroughly what adoption with CCS looks like. We typically have 2 groups of Training Sessions each year. Crucial to a healthy adoption experience is for each family to participate in our Information Training Meetings for adoptive families. Each family will understand what is required of them as they journey through the adoption process and will attend two meetings (Session I & Session II). They will hear testimonies from adoptive couples, birth parents and staff as they explain the different types of adoption experiences. Step 4. After attending these meetings, you will begin the Home Assessment Process. Depending on the caseworker’s and the couple’s availability, this process should take up to 3 months to complete. Step 5. Complete your portfolio of pictures and your birth parent letter so your Adoptive Family Profile can be available to our birth mothers. Step 6. As each family completes this process through Covenant Care, please feel free to pursue other agencies or other adoption avenues that may be available. Step 7. Adoptive Family Profiles are previewed by prospective birth parents that choose the family for their child. An Adoptive Family is not usually aware of w
