Finding Forever Families for Children in the Foster Care System
The Adoption Coalition of Texas is a public/private partnership of nonprofit adoption agencies and Child Protective Services working together to find forever families for older children, sibling groups and children with special needs, often referred to as forgotten children.
How to Adopt
Read our step-by-step process on how to get started or you may contact us at email@example.com. Please let us know that you are interested in exploring adoption.
The Heart Gallery of Central Texas
The Heart Gallery of Central Texas is both an art exhibit and community education effort. The Heart Gallery features professional portraits by renowned documentary and portrait photographers of children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted.
Forever Families airs every Sunday on YNN. YNN and the Adoption Coalition of Texas bring the community together to highlight some of the children who are currently waiting to be placed with their Forever Family and to educate viewers about the issues surrounding foster care adoptions.
