Missouri Adoption Agency: Eligibility Requirements
Nightlight® Christian Adoptions Missouri Adoption Agency is licensed by the Missouri 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.
