Nightlight Christian Adoptions in Athens, Georgia is licensed by the Georgia Department of Social Services to select suitable families for children needing adoption. The selection of adoptive parents is based on their eligibility to meet state and agency requirements, foreign country requirements (if applicable), their capacity for adoptive parenthood, and the availability of children whose needs they can meet. Nightlight’s Georgia office can provide referrals for embryo donation and embryo adoption, as well as international adoption.
