Overview


Mission Statement

Our mission is to share God’s love by: Helping children, both domestic and international, to find loving families Assisting birthparents and genetic parents in making a wise and loving plan for their child’s future Preparing families to be committed and effective parents to adoptive children Recognizing and advocating the personhood of pre-born children. We are committed to carrying out our mission in a way that will bring glory and honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Background Statement

Since Nightlight Christian Adoptions pioneered the field of embryo adoptions in 1997, our agency has been thrust in the media and political spotlight for our strong pro-life position. Nightlight also lights the path toward loving homes for children living as orphans in poverty and ignorance of the gospel. Since 1959 we have helped women in crisis pregnancy make the sacrificial choice of an adoption plan.


Impact Statement

Nightlight Christian Adoptions helped to found an orphanage in Kampala, Uganda in 2010 and is sending regular mission teams to help the children and work on special projects for the orphanage.  Nightlight brings older orphans from Eastern Europe and Asia to the US to raise awareness of the need to support them.

Needs Statement

$25,000 for adoption scholarships per year
 
$50,000 sponsorship for 10 children from Eastern Europe each year to come for a month long orphan host/tour program
 
$50,000 per year to assist in expenses for women in crisis pregnancy considering adoption

CEO Statement

Our battle cry is simple: "to get more kids adopted."
