Adoption is an amazing part of God’s heart. Through it, we can see a picture of how God brought us into His heavenly kingdom through the death of His son. At Gateway Woods we are committed to sharing God’s love to a lost world through the avenue of adoption.
Gateway Woods provides quality and affordable adoption services, for both international and domestic adoptions, to persons living in central and northern Indiana. As a smaller agency, we are able to offer personalized services to our clients, with a focus on quality. We are extremely careful in matching a child with his/her prospective parents, and we always work with both the child's and family's best interest in mind. For more infomation on the accrediting organizations please visit: the Department of State’s website and COA’s website.
