Our 2022 Christmas Adoption Program will be in full swing soon. Please join us as we assist local families in providing a little extra Christmas magic this year. Each year we adopt over 600 children from the Lee’s Summit and KC Metro area.
If you would like to adopt a child this year, please email us at christmasadoptions@coldwater.me.

How the program works:
Children aged birth-18 are signed up by their parents at Coldwater. The parents/guardians include items the child has requested for Christmas. We then give each family a number and each child in the family a letter to protect their privacy and for distribution purposes. Then we match each child's information to someone wanting to adopt a child for the holidays.
We ask that adopters spend around $50-$70 per child. 

If you choose to adopt a child, we will send the child's information to you via email or mail. We then ask you to bring your unwrapped gifts labeled with the child's number and letter on December 10 between 10 am and 2 pm to Deerbrook Church in Lee’s Summit. Our team will take it from there. We will deliver your gifts to the child’s family prior to Christmas.

We will start having information for children available around the second week of November -- just in time to get some Black Friday shopping done!

Thank you for considering adopting a child through Coldwater this Christmas. Please contact us at christmasadoptions@coldwater.me with any questions.
