Special Delivery Infant Adoption Agency is a non-profit, 501c3 corporation. We hold a Child–Placing license in the State of Texas.
Special Delivery exists to provide full adoption services to families all over the state of Texas with offices in Amarillo, Lubbock, and Fort Worth. We provide Christian homes for babies and provide the birth parents hope for a brighter future while sharing the love of Jesus Christ. We believe that every life comes from God, our Creator and He has a plan and a purpose for all life.
Our child-placing license permits us to place children up to the age of six years old, allowing siblings of infants to be adopted, when applicable. We are not a foster to adopt agency; therefore we receive no government funding. Our operational support comes from fees paid by adopting parents, donations, grants, and fundraisers. Therefore, our fees provide approximately one-fourth of the operational support needed to fund the full professional staff that is required to meet the needs of our families and our birth parents.
First and foremost, Special Delivery is a ministry. Our identity is found in sharing the love of Christ with a servant’s heart. God is to be honored and glorified in all we do. He is the reason we exist and we believe adoption is from the very heart of God.
Next, we are an advocate and a voice for the unborn. We rejoice in new life and strive to guide the birth parents to ultimately make the right decision for the baby. We will never coerce a birth mother to place her baby for adoption; our role is to present her with the facts to make an educated and informed decision that is right for her and her baby.
Next, we believe the birth parents and the adopting families are equal in importance. The birth parents are making a sacrifice of love to provide the best they can through adoption for their baby. The adopting parents are taking a step of faith and sharing their loving home with a new life. A new life full of promise and hope.
This ministry belongs to Jesus Christ and to all our prayer and financial partners. Some of you may want to be a partner with Special Delivery and be a part of building God’s Kingdom one baby, one family at a time. We look forward to hearing from you.
“When we finally let God lead us, He led us to Special Delivery. What a blessing!” -The L Family
At Special Delivery we believe that a successful placement occurs when each member of the adoption triad is represented with: An atmosphere that provides Godly counsel and compassion. Proper legal and ethical representation. Post placement counseling and after care.
