The adoption team assists in orphan care by encouraging pre-adoptive and post-adoptive families with resources and support.
The process of adoption can be a daunting task. From the beginning phases of inquiring about a child or filling out an application, to the completion of a required homestudy, the process sometimes can take years to finish and be filled with unexpected frustrations. The adoption team is here to provide encouragement, guidance, and support during these times.
Let us help remove some of the fear and confusion by directing you to the following information:
- The Oak offers financial grants and interest-free loans to church members and regular attenders. You can download an application here.
- The adoption team has assembled a helpful list of resources which can be viewed here.
- Contact an East White Oak family who has adopted. Many adoptive families are ready and willing to answer any of your questions or listen to your thoughts regarding adoption. A list of names and contact information is available at the church office.
- We highly encourage you to start by reading Hope for Orphan’s “Eight Steps to Adoption”
