Adoption Services at TBH
Straight Adoption Program
Texas Baptist Home has been licensed with Texas Department of Family Services for adoption since 2002.
We work with Families from the Region 3 area. We work with children that are currently waiting in the foster care system and whose parental rights have been terminated. We work with children all throughout the state of Texas that need to find their forever home.
Most of these children that are waiting are sibling groups larger than 3, older children (average age 9+), and primary medical needs children. This training and paperwork program to become a verified adoption family is free. This excludes a CPR and First Aid certification and a few other items you will need to verify your home. Families usually spend $200-$600 preparing their home for foster/adoption children. You will not pay TBH anything, but you will pay directly to the service provider.
Families open to adoption kids ages 0-8+ are welcome to start with Adoption. We require all families to be open to sibling group placements of 2 or more. If you are wanting to adopt under 8, you will start in Foster Care and move to foster to adopt if the child become available for adoption. To hear more about this program and to know why these requirement are in place, please attend one of our information meetings found on the Event Page.
