    Featured Family: Stacy and Kennan

    As a biracial family, we embody love, laughter, and patience. We are active, adventurous, cultured, and religious. We are an active, fun couple, extremely solid in our values after 14 years of marriage and travel to over 50 countries. We want our toddler daughter to have a sibling. We've gone through the adoption process with her, and we are eager to extend our forever family!

    We understand children with diverse and special needs; we are highly realistic, patient, and proactive. We are seeking a sibling group of 2, ages 0-10, or a single child. We are open to all races and cultures! Click to read more

    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.

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.

    Back to School Tips for Adopted Children

    Now imagine you are an adopted child... and you’re sitting in a classroom full of kids when the teacher asks you, “What’s your story?” Though it’s unlikely to be put that directly, it is common for schools to assign various “heritage projects” to exercise children’s research skills and to get them to know each other. Especially in American schools, where there are so many different “stories” for kids to tell about themselves, these projects are salutary and offer great opportunities for self-expression.
