Trusted adoption agency reviews since 2007.
As adoptive parents we will never be able to fully put into words what a blessing Nightlight Christian Adoptions has been to our family. The beautiful gift that adoption is indescribable. Nightlight Christian Adoptions is an OUTSTANDING agency. We worked with the Hillsboro, MO office staff and we can not say enough about the loving kind staff that works at this office. Honestly, we hold them in our hearts like we do dear friends or family. They are kind, thoughtful, prepared, and thorough. Our experience with adopting our son was beautiful. There are not enough words to compliment the staff. I have never met a more wonderful group of people. We highly recommend this agency. Our family would urge anyone who reads this to give/donate as much a possible to this not-for-profit agency. Please help support the good work that they do. It's hard to see some of the negative reviews and understand where those reviewers opinions are coming from. All we can share with you is our experience and it was nothing but positive.
We used Nightlight Christian Adoptions for both of our adoptions and we are so thankful that we did. They are by far the best adoption agency. We were blessed enough to have Kate handle both of our adoptions and she is like family to us. We are so thankful for an agency that honors God, values life, and respects families. Thank you Nightlight for all that you are doing to build families and give children a permanent, loving home.
We adopted from Haiti last year and we couldn't speak more highly of Nightlight. The process is long...it takes about 3 years. But we know we would never have brought home our two boys if it had not been for Nightlight. They are so dedicated to the creche and all the kids there...even the ones who aren't getting adopted. They gave us a scholarship and were always available to answer our questions.
Nightlight Christian Adoptions made our dream come true! We adopted embryos through the snowflake program, and we were amazed how much the process honored both sets of parents. We were reluctant to work just with a clinic, because we didn't want everything to be totally anonymous. We at least wanted to know who the donor family was. But through the education and home study process we came to see that this relationship could be so much more. The snowflake staff always got right back to us, and the matching process only took about a month. They arranged the shipping of the embryos, the labs, contracts and everything. I wish our doctor had told us about this option earlier on in the IVF process. It's like medicine meets social work. We have twin baby boys, thanks to God, our donor family, our doctor, and thanks to Nightlight.
We adopted our little girl from Russia and were so please with the way Nightlight handled the adoption and got everything done professionally and successfully. We met our child on a summer tour, and hosted her for two weeks. Then the adoption was finalized a year later. When we were in Russia, the coordinator drove us everywhere we needed to go, gave us a place to stay, translated everything for us. It was a long process, but Nightlight made it possible. Thank you so much for building our family!
It saddens me to read some of the negative reviews on here. Nightlight Christian Adoptions have saved my life and I will forever be grateful to them. I was born to a prostitute, alcoholic, drug addict mother in St. Petersburg, Russia. I have yet to meet my biological father and have no other relative contact, but that doesn't matter because everyone I truly care about are are here in my new home in California. My mom, dad, and sister love me unconditionally and will always support me. With the help of Nightlight I have been given a new life and endless opportunities. If I stayed any longer in Russia I would no doubt be heading toward the same path as my biological mother, who has passed away over eight years ago. Now I am studying to be an Industrial Engineer at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and I couldn't be any happier. Maybe in a perfect world there is a perfect adoption agency, but from what I've watched on news channels we are far from perfect. I'm sorry to those who have not had as great as experience with Nightlight as myself. I urge anyone who is looking into adopting to put their faith into Nightlight, because every child deserves a loving family.
We have been blessed to build our family through the miraculous gift of adoption. My husband and I have adopted 7 of our 8 children. ALL 7 of our adoptions were done through Nightlight Christian Adoptions. We began the adoption journey over 13 years ago. We visited several adoption agencies and even began the process with a different agency but then we found Nightlight. Their love and care for prospective birthfamilies blessed us so we quickly switched to their agency. It was extremely important to our family that great care and love was poured into our children's birthfamily. We have adopted 5 times domestically and 2 times internationally through NCA. With each adoption, Nightlight and their staff has done an incredible job helping us through the process. They have been supportive and proactive on our behalf. As we navigated through our international adoptions, NCA and their staff were once again extremely helpful throughout the whole process. We highly recommend Nightlight Christian Adoptions as an honest and reputable adoption agency.
Going into adoption we felt overwhelmed at the huge task before us, but Nightlight turned the whole process into a huge blessing. They were with us at every step, very knowledeable, and genuinely caring. They helped make our dream of a family a reality. Thanks so much for your hard and competent work! We'll never forget you.
We have recommended Nighlight many times and there have been many friends and acquintances who have also had wonderful experiences. We decided upon international adoption for our second child. The staff at Nightlight was very thorough and provided us with excellent counsel. Everything was clearly explained and there were no surprises. There are many things that can happen when dealing with another country and the folks at Nightlight were one step ahead making sure we knew what to expect. We had a great experience and would use them again.
We had a great experience with Nightlight. The paperwork was easy to complete and the staff was helpful. This agency is truly out to find children families. Our adoption was picture perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend this agency to anyone. I am so sorry for those that had a bad experience, as that was not the case with our family, and many others that we know. Nightlight and it's staff helped us complete our family, and for that, we are forever grateful!
We recently completed our international adoption through Nightlight. We had an excellent experience and things could not have gone any better. The time frame they quoted us was accurate. The staff is kind, caring and compassionate. The in country staff is fabulous. I highly recommend checking out this agency. Their fees are lower than most, and they treat you like family!
