Adoption

Above all else, we believe children deserve the warmth, comfort and unconditional love of a permanent family.  We offer two types of adoption at Methodist Home for Children.

Foster to Adopt

Our foster to adopt program works with families wanting to adopt foster children who are unable to reunite with their biological family. The process begins with training and licensing families as foster parents. The amount of time it takes to make a compatible match between parents and child depends on the family’s strengths and needs, the types of children who might best fit in the family, and the availability of these children. Read more …

New Life Adoptions

Our New Life Adoptions program avoids the foster care system altogether. It connects birth parents with families wanting to adopt an infant. These are private adoptions, and the choice of an adoptive family is made by the birth parents or by Methodist Home for Children on their behalf. Adoptions can be confidential, semi-open or open, and services include counseling, hospital support and post-adoption support. Read more …

Independent Services

Even if you plan to foster or adopt through another agency or social services, our staff can help you through the process with MAPP training or home studies. Contact us at FosterandAdopt@mhfc.org.
