What We Do
We are thrilled that you have taken the first step toward making a radical difference in the life of a child. As Christians we are called to take care of the widows and orphans. (James 1:27)
Many people think you need a certain income or must not have any other children in order to become adoptive parents. These things aren't what matter most at Antioch Adoptions. You can be younger or older, be from any socioeconomic or ethnic background. You don't have to be a member of any specific church as we are a ministry for all churches.
What matters most is your active Christian faith and walk, your good parenting skills, your openness to embrace the adoption process and all it entails, a sincere desire to love a child, and the ambition to help him or her grow as a full-fledged member of your family and our society. Because we are an adoption ministry, we ask our families to go one step further, to be directed by the Lord in all areas of this process, and to trust Him completely in seeking the child He has prepared for them.
Antioch Adoptions is here to help you perform radical acts of love toward children. Currently, we are serving U.S. citizens physically residing in Washington State. Due to the high demand for our adoption services, the Redmond office is currently only able to accept new families who reside in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. Our Spokane Office services families residing in Spokane County. We are happy to announce that we are close to officially opening a satellite office which will serve families in Thurston County as well. We are also praying for more churches to rise up in the far corners of Washington State and host/fund an Antioch Adoptions social worker so that all Washington families can receive our services.
People who are a part of the Antioch Adoptions family are like you...ordinary people who have chosen to do something excellent... admirable... awe-inspiring... radical. People who have chosen to touch the life of a child like no one else can. And we will be with you every step of the way.
Our goal is to partner with you in your desire to add children to your family. Our processes have been designed to best screen families to be certain that the children will be well cared for and protected, as well as to assist parents in navigating the confusing maze of adoption with joy and anticipation, and equipping them to walk victoriously through the more difficult phases. We love our families!
