I am approved to adopt a child or children. Does anyone know of an adoptable child who needs a family?

Question by want2adoptnow: I am approved to adopt a child or children. Does anyone know of an adoptable child who needs a family?
I have been on the waiting list for 2 years, but going through CPS, is like playing monopoly. Now I am venturing out to seek a private adoption. I am looking to adopt a multi-race/bi-racial toddler between ages 2 and 5. We have a 7800 square foot home and all information is verifiable and legal. If anyone knows of someone interested in a private adoption, would you please refer them to me or vice versa?

wanna adopt me? Just kidding… good luck with that! If I were you I would go to the family planning in your area and see if they can help you out or keep your name available for the unwed mothers that want to give up their child for adoption. Get a lawyer first though.

  1. Your state social services agency should have listings online, complete with pictures. Obviously that hasn’t worked for you, so you might try to contact your area’s African-American support organizations. Good luck to you!

  2. I’m sorry, I don’t know of anyone.
    But, why don’t you go through the adoption agencies instead of CPS? I understand they’re more expensive, but maybe you’d have better luck. There are so many agencies on the net—along with tons of children waiting for homes.

    Good luck!

  3. I am shocked!!! You know, I saw this show long ago wbout how so MANY children in the US need adoptive parents. Especially African American children… it seems most Americans want to adopot from overseas, mostly asian children or anglo-europeans that look more like them… Meanwhile, African American kids are all being adopted by Canadians and Germans… What’s up with that!!!? I’m Mexican and it pisses me off anyway… If there are so many children in need of homes… why are they making it so hard on people like you?…. Okay, I remember that in Houston they always hav this segment on the news about children that need homes, and whether or not anyone is interested in adopting them… this is the article with the number as well. (Good Luck and Best Wishes!!! You are a wondeful person!!!)

    Adoptation Campaign

    For more information, call 1-866-ADOPT TX

    “Houston’s WB Cares for Kids teamed up with Adoptation in 2000 to launch a public service campaign whose goal was to place 700 waiting children who were living in foster homes and who were in the custody of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS). Since that time, through a series of public service announcements, Houston’s WB has individually spotlighted approximately 500 waiting children.”

    “Adoptation is a Houston community collaborative that brings together the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Catholic Charities, DePelchin Children’s Center, Homes of St. Mark, Houston Achievement Place, Lutheran Social Services of the South, and Spaulding for Children. Adoptation is a sponsor project of the Greater Houston Community Foundation.”

    “From January 2000 through December 31, 2004, Adoptation placed over 2,500 waiting children with adoptive families. Currently, an average of 122 children per month live with foster/adopt families who, if parental rights are terminated, will become their permanent adoptive families. Adoption services include orientation for interested families, pre-adoptive education classes, home study services, family support groups, and post-adoption services.”

    “Houston’s WB’s commitment to these children and their families extends beyond our public service announcement campaign. The holiday season is always a time when people become aware of the needs of others in our community. Houston’s WB annually host a holiday party for 200 waiting children! They and their families are entertained by magicians, musicians, clowns and face painters, they play games, they visit with Santa Claus, they lunch on fun foods and all kinds of holiday goodies, and each child leaves with an age appropriate gift and certificate for clothing. Every year families look forward to seeing each other and participating in this very fun event!”
