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.
