Adoptive Families

After your adoption is finalized, TBH is dedicated to ensuring that the following transitions are smooth for you and your new family. To help with this, we offer the following list of post-adoption services to parents who finalized their adoptions through TBH:

  • Information and referral for needed services including consulting, counseling, and medical
  • Adoption relevant training for the whole family
  • Assessments for different stages of life
  • Respite care
  • Assistance with search and reunion
  • Ability to participate in our adoptive parent alumni association, Life Happens
  • 24 hour crisis intervention

Life Happens Alumni Association

We are very excited to have our Adoptive Parent Alumni Association available to our parents. Once you have finalized your adoption, if you wish to become a member of this group, simply visit the website TBH Post Adoption Support Group to become a member or email Susan Shinn (TBH adoptive parent) at tbhsupportgroup@embarqmail.com. Also consider becoming a member of our private TBH Post Adoption Support Facebook group.

Adoption Reunion

Texas Baptist Home hosts an Annual Adoption Alumni Reunion every summer. It is our desire to keep in touch with you throughout the years and this party is a great way for TBH staff to see your family grow as well as for your family to build relationships with other families who have adopted. Please make plans to attend every year following the finalization of your adoption.

Not a TBH Family?

Here at the Texas Baptist Home we are only equipped to provide services for families who have chosen our agency for their adoption. However, if you are in need of Post-Adoption services, please contact Dana Holt at dholt@tbhc.org who will point you in the right direction for a Post-Adoption service provider in your area of the state of Texas.
