How to Get Started

You've made an important life-changing decision � you've decided to consider adoption. It's a decision that could ultimately lead to the fulfillment of your lifelong desire to love and parent a child.

Adoptive Families provide permanent homes for children in need of a forever family. Passage of Youth work hand and hand with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to serve children who are in custody of Child Protective Services (CPS).

Our foster to adopt program - enables children who have been removed from abusive homes by the state of Texas to be adopted by a loving forever family. Each adoption, like each family, is unique. Our goal is to get to know you and understand your unique situation so that together we can develop an adoption plan that is right for you.
