About Us

Our Mission

Adoptive Families for Children has been a licensed child placing agency since 1983. Our mission at Adoptive Families for Children is to serve birth parents, single individuals, prospective adoptive parents, and children alike to ensure that the children placed for adoption find safe, permanent homes, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or sexuality. We are proud to support this mission by maintaining the highest ethical and legal standards possible.

Adoptive Families for Children works with birth mothers and their families considering adoption and the opportunity to give their child a better life. We work with couples and single individuals who want to become a mom or dad by adopting a child in need of a permanent home.
