adoptive family Spirit of Faith Adoptions Cradle Care

We have all had to adapt to “the new normal” in multiple areas of life, and here at Spirit of Faith, we have not been exempted.  The reality of the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we operate, specifically in terms of our placement procedures in response to changing hospital operations.

As a result of Covid-19, many hospitals are discharging babies at the same time they discharge the birth mother, which is generally 24 hours after delivery.  We want to encourage adoptive parents to obtain foster care licensure as well. That way, because you will be "dually licensed", Spirit of Faith Adoptions will be able to discharge the baby directly to you, where he/she can safely be cared for until the birth parent(s) are ready to consent to the adoption, which is at least 72 hours after birth.   

If you are interested in pursuing this, or if you have questions about the process, please contact Jennifer: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
