Adoption services are now available for individuals and couples willing to provide a loving home to a child. There are thousands of children looking for a forever home in Texas, and Azleway can help match you with a child to complete your family. We will help guide prospective families through the adoption process, including guidance with the required home study and paperwork and working with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS).
At Azleway, parents can be verified in to adopt in two ways, matched adoptions or foster to adopt. In matched adoptions, parents are approved only to adopt and Azleway will work with the family to match them with a child in the care of TDFPS. In foster to adopt, parents are certified as foster/adopt homes and can foster a child prior to adopting them. Also, adopting a child through Azleway and TDFPS is far less expensive than private adoptions.
Potential adoption parents must be at least 25 years of age, with a high school diploma or GED, and pass a criminal and child abuse background check. In addition, they must complete pre-service training with a focus on children who have been abused or neglected, become certified in first aid and CPR, and complete a comprehensive home study.
