5 Forever Families Adoption Program (Foster, Foster to Adopt and Straight Adoption) Within the State of Texas, there are thousands of children who are living without a Forever Family. These children are currently living in foster homes or treatment facilities waiting for someone to claim them as their own. The reasons that they wait vary and can include abandonment, abuse or neglect or having specialized needs. Regardless, each and every child waiting for a home deserves a family to love and cherish them forever! Adoption Priorities, Inc. has partnered with the TDFPS to find loving, caring Forever Families for waiting children in TDFPS custody. This program is designed to place children and sibling groups of all ages in homes that are able to meet their needs through either foster care, foster-to-adopt or straight adoption. Foster to adopt means you will be a foster parent first and then adopt the child whereas straight adoption means the child is already legally available for adoption at placement. Program Requirements: Must be 21 years of age. Be financially self-sustaining. May be married, single, divorced or widowed. If married, should be for at least two years. Be willing to submit to a criminal background check. Be willing to attend parenting classes. Participate in a home study. Be committed to parenting a special child. Types of Children Available for Adoption: All ages for foster and foster to adopt OR school age & older for straight adoption May be a member of a racial or ethnic group.

May be a sibling group that needs to be placed together or maintain contact with each other. API receives funding for the Forever Families Program through the State of Texas therefore there are no agency fees paid by the adoptive family. There may be fees associated with other entities such as lawyers, education classes, books obtaining fingerprints, etc. About Foster Care When you foster a child who is in Texas CPS custody, you are providing a temporary home for a needy child. CPS, API and the foster family work together to reunite the child with their biological family. To participate in this program, you must live within 100 miles of Adoption Priorities, Inc. s office in San Antonio. This program is great for families who have parenting experience and wish to enhance the life of a child through consistent care-giving. You are reimbursed for the care you provide to a child in need! About Foster to Adopt The Foster to Adopt program offers an opportunity for families to provide foster care services to children in need with the intent of adopting the child once parental rights are terminated. This program is great for families wishing to adopt younger children or sibling groups with small children. To participate in this program, you must live within 100 miles of Adoption Priorities, Inc. s office in San Antonio. You are reimbursed for the foster care you provide to the child and might receive an adoption subsidy once you adopt! About Straight Adoption In Straight Adoption, children are legally free for adoption and live with your family for at least 6 months prior to the adoption being finalized. This program is geared toward families who wish to adopt children who are school age or sibling groups. To participate in this program, you may reside anywhere in Texas however you may have to travel to our office for trainings or during the matching process to meet the child. You may be eligible for an adoption subsidy if the child meets the definition of having special needs. Special needs include being a minority over the age of 2, Caucasian over the age of 6, a part of a sibling group or having a medical or mental health diagnosis. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families Psalms 68: 5-6 There are thousands of children in the foster care system just waiting to be adopted... All of these children need a "Forever Family" to call their own.
