Child Spotlights

In addition to Adoption and Foster Care and Permanency Support services, Arms Wide Adoption Services offers a unique program that offers proactive, child-focused recruitment of adoptive families for children who have been placed in long-term foster care. This program provides intensive social work services to find the best adoptive family for a child by exploring all facets of the child’s family, school, and friendship circles, as well as recruiting potential families from the broader community.

Below are Houston area kids who are enrolled in this specialized, child-focused recruitment program. For more information about these children and to find out how you can become a forever family, please contact us at  713-681-6991. We would love the opportunity to share more about these wonderful children with you and determine if you might be the forever family they have been waiting for!
