Kentucky Baptist Children's Home, now known as Glen Dale Children's Home. The two ministries operated separately until 1954 when the Kentucky Baptist Convention created the Kentucky Baptist Board of Child Care to oversee their operation. A third campus, Pine Crest Children's Home, opened in Morehead in 1956. It served children until its closure in 1971.
In 1980 and 1981, new cottages were constructed at Glen Dale and Spring Meadows. An emergency shelter was established in Elizabethtown in 1982. A similar facility, the Sunrise Dixon Center opened in Dixon the following year. In 1988, the Sunrise Morehead Center was opened in Morehead. The next year, the shelter in Elizabethtown became the agency's first treatment program and was renamed the Baptist Youth Ranch.
The adoption program that operated through Spring Meadows in the '60s was reopened in 1990 and is now known as Sunrise Pregnancy and Adoption Services. Cornerstone Counseling Sunrise's outpatient Christian counseling service, was begun in 1992 with one office in Bowling Green. There are now 3 Cornerstone offices -- in Berea, Richmond and Owensboro.

Something that the agency was doing as sharing information/pictures, etc between the birth family and the adopted parents appears no longer to be happening without notice to either party.
Their last annual report was filed to the Secretary of State on 4-21-2001. was listed as a non-profit corporation. and are in "bad" standing.
Please email us if you were involved with this agency.
After the close of Chosen Children, the files were turned over to the Mary Kendall Home - November 2002 - in Owensboro, Ky by Ray and Barbara.
Due to lack of storage space Mary Kendall Home, in 2005 turned over the files to the state of Kentucky for storage. Mary Kendall has very little information but does have a card file.
We will post additional information as it become available.

This agency was in Louisville for many of the early years.
The records were turned over by the court to the Ky Baptist Children's Home. (see above)
A lot of children went thru this home in Louisville, Kentucky for many years and records were not kept very well. When the home was closed by default judgment what records were left were turned over to the Kentucky Baptist Children's Home for "safe keeping"
