About Us

AdoptTexasKids.org

The AdoptTexasKids.org movement focuses on the needs of children who, through no fault of their own, become wards of the State of Texas.  These children are the survivor victims of abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation.  They are children for whom the State of Texas, and many thousand foster care parents and families across the State, has intervened and removed from life threatening circumstances.  However, the foster care system is designed to provide temporary care giving.  It was never intended to provide lasting, long-term permanency for these children.  As such, the #1 need these children share in common is the need to be matched with an adult individual, couple, or family who is able and willing to make the forever commitment of adopting child(ren) who come from a hard place. They must be able and willing to become a “Forever Family”.  Within the AdoptTexasKids.org movement, these children are known as “waiting children”.  They have survived the trauma of the circumstances that brought them into the foster care system, they have endured the processes within the system to attempt to reunite them with their biological  family, and now after failed attempts at reunification they are waiting for the first day of the rest of their lives.  They are waiting for adoption and their Forever Family.

AdoptTexasKids.org conducts activities to raise awareness of the plight of our waiting children.  You can go many different places to learn statistics and facts, and you will find the same information on this website, but AdoptTexasKids.org strives to tell the story of waiting children in Texas.  We go beyond the numbers, beyond the intentions, and attempt to promote the voice of the children.  AdoptTexasKids.org presents you with the images and stories of real waiting children in the hope of awakening the hero within you. You are our waiting children’s “Heroes in Waiting”.

AdoptTexasKids.org conducts fundraising activities to financially support the efforts of adoption, as well as foster care agencies in Texas in moving waiting children out of the foster care system.  In a perfect world, there would be no need for a foster care system and on the rare occasion that a child needed a forever family, appropriate and skilled parents would be lined up around the corner competing for the opportunity to provide that child with safety, love, and permanence. Sadly, our world is not perfect and those who seek to help our waiting children have real, tangible needs.  AdoptTexasKids.org raises funds to offset the expenses of recruiting, screening, training, and supporting individuals, couples, and families who would be Heroes to our waiting children as they work together to form a Forever Family.  To that end, if you have interest in participating in a fundraising event for adoption in Texas, please don’t hesitate to contact us at contact@adopttexaskids.org.
