Foster Care & Adoption

“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me…”

Mark 9:37 NIV

We want to be part of the solution for vulnerable children who need families. And we want to pursue God's heart for healing and restoration for all families—biological families needing community and support, foster and adoptive parents looking for connection and parenting skills, and adoptees pursuing healing and hope.

What we do


Considering fostering or adoption? We want to help you get started. Monthly sessions that provide families with information about foster care, as well as domestic and international adoption, are available.



We have a vibrant community of foster and adoptive families. Check out events and happenings where you can find encouragement, support, and meaningful connection with other families sharing a similar journey.


Parenting can be a difficult journey, especially when trauma is involved. Join our Families Count course for biological parents in crisis or attend the annual Family is Forever Parenting Summit for foster and adoptive parents. Families can also benefit from mentor families, expert speakers, and local therapists specializing in trauma, while adoptees can connect with area therapists or online partners for support.
