Our History and Adoption Statistics
Fam2Fam is a 501C 3 non-profit licensed agency and was founded by experienced professionals in the child advocacy field. We were licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services as a child-placing agency on February 14, 2001.
We were founded on February 14, 2001 as an international agency and began our domestic programs on August 2, 2001. Our first placement of a domestic infant was January 2002. That year we placed 33 children, 20 of whom were domestic. In 2003, our second full year of our domestic program, we placed 63 children, 57 of whom were domestic. We discontinued our international programs in August 2003 and now we work only with domestic adoption. From the inception of our domestic program in January 2002 through September 30, 2013, Family to Family has placed 346 newborns, toddlers and children.

‘The Wait’ is the hardest part of the adoption process for most people. After waiting so long for other processes to be complete like infertility treatment, the home study process, choosing an adoption agency or preparing your profile, the wait for match after the contract date is almost more than the average person can handle. At Family to Family, our mean average from contract date to match is 210 days and from contract date to placement is 256 days.
In 2012, Family to Family did 26 domestic placements.
