A Family For Every Child

Serving Families, Children and Agencies Nationwide
A Family For Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child.

Featured Family: Diana and Ronald
We would like to adopt from one to five children of any race or ethnicity, ages 10 and under, and including at least one girl. We will consider older ages for a sibling group. We have a large combination biological/adopted family. We have done training and have a great deal of experience, we have strong parenting skills and knowledge of child development. We have a repertoire of parenting skills to deal with behavioral problems in a firm and loving way. We work with a variety of special needs kids. We are able to provide a structured, flexible environment with a daily routine. We try to catch a child doing something good and avoid focusing on correcting negative behaviors meant to get attention. We are both at home full time and we are usually available to support each other and have extra time to bond with the children. We are able to work as a team with one parent giving individual attention to one child, while the other pays attention to the other children. Click to read more.

Now Serving Washington Families!
A Family For Every Child is pleased to announce that we are now serving Washington families through our Adoption Agency. A Family for Every Child Adoption Agency recognizes that "Forever Families" come in all shapes and sizes. We are an inclusive agency that specializes in finding permanent families for children in the foster care system that tend to be the most difficult to place because of their age, ethnicity, sibling group, developmental, emotional or physical disability. AFFEC provides adoption home studies to families interested in adoption. We know that every child deserves to be loved, and all kids never outgrow the need for a "forever family." Our Adoption Agency has expanded in to Washington and is now serving both Oregon and Washington families through the homestudy and adoption process. Contact us if you think adoption might work for you; we can answer any questions you may have. Click to read more
