Becoming An Adoptive Parent

We help find forever families for children who have survived trauma and neglect.

Connecting families to quality agencies in our network.

Adoption is the legal process through which a child joins a family different from his or her birth parents. Children are matched with a caring family who has been educated about their needs and embrace them into their family. In contrast to foster care, which is temporary, adoption is a permanent, lifelong commitment to a child.
