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: Meet Kendall and Andrew!
Our names are Andrew & Kendall, we are in our early thirties and have one infant daughter named Alice. We live in Oregon, where Andrew is an airplane mechanic and Kendall is a stay at home mom. We love all outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and going to the lake. During the week, when we are at home, we enjoy spending time together watching movies and playing games with our daughter! Adoption has been something that we have both been interested in, even before we decided to have our biological child. As a loving and compassionate family, we have a strong desire to better the world around us, and are now at a point in our lives where we can provide a nurturing home for a child that needs a little extra love and care. We feel that there is a perfect child out there waiting to join our family and we can’t wait to meet her!

Princess for a Day
March 07, 2021
2021 will mark our 13th year of providing foster and community children alike the opportunity to experience a day of pampering and fun. In 2020, we catered to more than 350 “princesses” and we expect to surpass that number in 2021! This is a regal gathering for all the children in the land. This event is to celebrate the children both in foster care and not by giving them the royal treatment. This includes being pampered, adorned in a new outfit fit for royalty, and a fancy tea party.
