Committed to Life – Committed to Family

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139:13, NIV).

Committed to life – unborn babies of mothers seeking a positive future, children in orphanages around the world who expectantly wait for a family and the hope for a better life, human embryos in frozen storage awaiting the opportunity to be born.

Nightlight cares about our families and their adopted children because we believe every child deserves a family. Nightlight provides international, domestic and embryo adoption services as a permanent response for children without parents through child advocacy, parent education and lifelong support. Nightlight is committed to helping children in all stages of their biological development. Our commitment to the orphan children around the world includes many humanitarian aid projects.

Nightlight helps families adopt internationally from multiple nations. Whether considering adoption as an option for your unborn child or as an answer to building a family, we provide the resources and guidance necessary to help you make the best choice.
