Featured Family: Danielle and James
We would love to start their family with a girl and are open to up to two siblings and would like at least one girl. We are comfortable parenting children from any ethnic or cultural background. We will be a good resource for children with mild developmental, emotional, or behavioral problems. We will look for ways to incorporate the children's culture into their family traditions through food, culturally relevant toys and books, building friendships, attending festivals, and learning their language.
Sign Up for the Matching Assistance Program!
A Family For Every Child's Matching Assistance Program is a free program designed to help waiting families become matched with waiting foster children. Our program is most beneficial to families who are seeking to adopt a foster child over the age of seven with special needs. We provide families with resources and assistance during their adoption journey through newsletters, how-to guides, various media recommendations, and more. We provide families with the tools to submit and advocate for themselves, while offering support and assistance during the matching process.
