Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. – James 1:27
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about adoption services through Illini Christian Ministries. We believe that adoption is a beautiful covenant, dating all the way back to the time of Moses. Adoption is a blessing, not only to the orphans, but also to the adoptive family.
It is the goal of Illini Christian Ministries to assist adoptive families as they navigate the journey of adoption. We have many services and resources available to adoptive families.
- ICM provides home study services for Christian
couples and individuals who wish to adopt domestically
- ICM provides placement services for families seeking a domestic adoption
- ICM works cooperatively with placement agencies to better serve adoptive families
- ICM provides services to pregnant women in the state of Illinois who are seeking to make an adoption plan for their child
Illini Christian Ministries provides adoption services regardless of race, age, gender, national origin, ancestry, or handicap. In maintaining efficiency of adoption services, the agencies ensures that prospective adoptive parents meet the guidelines and eligibility requirements set forth by Illini Christian Ministries, the state and federal governments, and the foreign governments. These requirements are not upheld in an act of discrimination, but in compliance with set policies. Complaints of discrimination can be filed directly with Illini Christian Ministries, and also with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
