The moment that we connected with Christian Family Service, I knew they were a very special agency. All of our interactions with the staff have been completely professional, extremely personal and very Spirit led. After having an adoption fall through at another agency, the Lord randomly led us to CFS. It was only the Lord. From the moment we spoke with Sharon Cole on the phone, to the moment our son was placed in our arms, we saw the hand of God in each step. We have since adopted our second child through CFS and we continue to have relationships with both birth moms facilitated through CFS. We are so grateful and appreciative of the ways that CFS walked with us through our adoption processes and the role that CFS continues to plays in our lives with both of our kids’ birth moms.
I feel so good about the plan I made for my son. I want to be of help to other women who were considering adoption; they can just call me and I will talk with them about it.
We love Sharon & her staff at Christian Family Services!!! It was through them that our first miracle Chad came to us, over 13 years ago now & then they also played a part in completing our post adoption visit for our second miracle Gabriella, over 9 years ago!!! Through every step of the way…. No matter what the questions were or what fears we had, Sharon was always just a phone call away! They have blessed our family in so many ways & we will be forever thankful that they were such a huge part of the orchestration of our adoptions…. From birth moms to losses to answered prayers. We know that God put Sharon & CFS in our lives for a reason. So thankful for them every day as I watch our kids growing up so fast!
You can choose your own definition of family. My definition of family would be people who shared their faith, are always there for you, taught you morals, helped you find your identity, loved you unconditionally, and still let you be you. The best part about being adopted from Christian Family Services was that I got this and more when my family chose me. We got to choose how to define our F.A.M.I.L.Y.
We value the ministry CFS for many reasons…first and foremost we value the impact this ministry has upon the lives of the birth mothers they see. The investment they make upon these young women’s lives cannot be measured. They are not only there for them in a physical sense, but they are truly there for them spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually…however they are needed, they make themselves available and that is HUGE.
