Our Mission

Our mission is to serve Christ by offering a positive alternative in response to an unplanned pregnancy and to assist birth parents in making the most loving decision for their child. Inheritance believes:

  • Adoption is not giving away your child, but is about giving your child the very best.
  • Adoption is child-centered and is a positive parenting choice.
  • Loving your child does not always mean raising them.

Why Choose us

Inheritance Adoptions is a Christian-based child-placing agency and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Inheritance has been operating as a ministry to pregnant women in crisis since 1993.  We understand the stress and confusion that an unplanned pregnancy can cause and we are here to help you sort through your options.  We have seen the blessings that can come from these situations and can offer hope and healing.

Our services to birth parents are free and include counseling, information on having a healthy pregnancy, and transportation to doctor’s appointments. 

We also provide shelter, food and clothing when necessary. 

Birth mothers (and fathers when present) can choose the family who will raise the child.

We place children in open adoptions where the birth family can have visits, pictures, and letters throughout the child’s life.

Adoption gives the child life and opportunities that every child deserves to succeed in life.

Adoption gives the child a two parent, stable, loving home to meet the needs of every child.

Since Inheritance is a small agency every client has a one to one relationship with trained staff who there for you in this difficult time.

After placement, we offer services to women who want to improve their life situation.

Inheritance Adoptions believes in making adoption available to anyone with a desire to parent a child in need. Our placement fee is one of the lowest in the industry and is based on the tax benefits available. The cost is outlined in the fee schedule. We also have a Special Needs Assistance Program for those couples willing to adopt harder to place children.

Our Staff

Inheritance Adoptions is very blessed to have such a caring, devoted, and experienced staff.  Each staff member brings their unique experience and personality traits which combine to make a great team.


Meet the Darden family:

"Hello! We are the Darden Family; Stacy, Patricia, Kylie, and Viktoria. Stacy works as a contractor and owns his own roofing company which gives him the freedom to take time off to travel and spend time with the family. Patricia has worked with children her entire life and is currently a Third Grade Bilingual teacher. God has blessed Stacy and Patricia with two daughters, Kylie and Viktoria; two fun loving bubbly fifteen and fourteen-year-olds who both cannot wait to be sisters. They are at the perfect age to spoil, love and be actively involved in your baby’s life. Viktoria, adopted at three days old, is especially excited to share her adoption connection with a sibling. We are a very active, fun, loving family filled with laughter, support, and encouragement for one another. We love sports, working out, going to the movies, and volunteering at our Church. Stacy and Patricia both coach children’s Soccer, Volleyball, and Basketball through the Upward Christian organization. We love traveling together; Canada, Cabo, Punta Cana, and Alaska are just a few places we have been to. Our faith in God is central to our lives and the values that we pass on to our children. We are so excited to share our life and add to our family through adoption. We would like you to know how much love and respect we feel for you already! We cannot imagine what a difficult decision this is for you and we pray for you daily. We look forward to meeting you!"

We first came to Inheritance in September of 1997. We were heartbroken and desperate for a baby. We started the adoption process, not knowing how long or if we would ever get a baby. We had a failed adoption (not with Inheritance) in November of that year.
