Broadening Access to Adoption, One Miracle at a Time
Adoption can be a win-win situation for those of us who enter into it with an open mind and an open heart. The joys and rewards of parenting are many and varied. There are as many varieties of children needing good homes as there are varieties of adoptive parents. At Family to Family Adoptions, Inc. (Fam2Fam), we pledge to help you find that special child waiting for your love and nurturing.
We specialize in placing healthy newborns but occasionally place older children through direct placements with adoptive families. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing you the most confidential and caring adoption services.
About Us at Family to Family
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. As of December 31, 2009, we had placed 258 infants or toddlers. Please explore the blog on our website home page for updated statistics.
Our MISSION is to broaden access to adoption for eligible adoptive parents. Eligibility requirements for adoption as practiced by many agencies have become prohibitively restrictive for families who should be able to adopt. Fam2Fam is more flexible in our criteria and can more often meet the needs of qualified prospective parents.
Our GOAL is to initiate a personalized adoption plan that is right for you and your family. You have the right to turn down a ‘match’. Only you know when it is right for your family.
Our AIM is for you to be able to adopt the child of your choice within a framework of convenience and cost management. You never lose your agency fee until you are successfully placed and you can control the cost of your adoption by deciding how much in living expenses you wish to pay. Or you can guarantee your birth mother’s living expenses through other options.
Our PLEDGE to you is that we will do everything we can to assure that your adoption is a fulfilling and joyful experience for you. We can not guarantee you that it will be ‘easy’ and ‘uneventful’, but we want to assure you that you will be working with an agency that values both you and your birth family.
Our DESIRE is to make your adoption experience a positive and exciting one. This is a very special time in your life. You are about to become parents!
