TBHC has been licensed with Texas Department of Family Services for adoption since 2002. We work with families from the DFW area and Permian Basin. These children are currently waiting in the foster care system, whose parental rights have been terminated, and are looking for their forever home.
Most of the children that are waiting are sibling groups, older children (average age 9+), and primary medical needs children.
The 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 TBHC anything, but you will pay directly to the service provider.
Families who are wanting to do matched adoption for younger children need to be open to at least the age of 8.
We require all families to be open to sibling group placements of 2 or more. If you are wanting to adopt children under the age of 8, you will start in Foster Care and move to foster to adopt if the child becomes 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.
