Welcome to
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: Marty and Melissa
Hello, we are Marty, Melissa and Karsyn. We are interested in adopting children that are ages newborn to six years old. We are open to both boys and/or girls with any ethnic background. We will consider sibling groups up to 3 children. We are open to some minor medical issues. We are approved foster-to-adopt parents. We work full time but there is some flexibility in our schedules because we are both tenured employees. Marty is a Senior Project Manager and Melissa is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and we both work for Nationwide Children's Hospital.

We live in a subdivision that is very kid friendly, especially since the elementary school is at the end of our street. We are fortunate that we live in a school district that is ranked in the top 40 of Ohio. We have built a network of family and friends around us that love and support who we are and they are ready to jump in to help as needed. We have strong beliefs and we turn to that for support as well. Click to read more.

Back to School Tips for Adopted Children
With the ending of summer and the beginning of the new school year, most families are letting go of their familiar summertime routines and adjusting to life back at school. This usually means new teachers, new classrooms, and new peer interaction, all of which can cause a great deal of stress for all involved. This can be especially true for adopted children, who also then have to navigate the myriad of projects and assignments required of them, some dealing with “family-type” assignments. Sometimes, an action as simple as having a basic conversation about adoption with your child‘s teacher is enough to curve some of the stress before it happens. We have included many more tips and ideas to help with all of the stresses that come with back to school. Click here to see 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
