Christian Adoption Services requires that parents interested in adopting domestically through our agency meet the following criteria:

  • As Alberta adoption law states we cannot place a child for adoption outside the province, only adults who maintain their usual residence in Alberta may apply.
  • Due to a very high volume of applicants, we have decided to restrict our domestic program to only those who struggle with infertility, or who may have medical reasons why they should not conceive a child. ¬†
  • We recommend that at least one applicant be under the age of 45 years. ¬†Applicants who are over 45 years old may have a longer than average wait time as expectant parents generally chose younger applicants. ¬†

Couples are interviewed and a home study is completed to decide their suitability for an open adoption. Couples must attend an information session, open adoption training, and two workshops.
