Adoption

Staying on the Right Path

Thousands of Texas children in foster care need permanent families. Adoption is a great way to provide the love and security every child deserves.

Pathways serves children and youth ages 0-17 who are placed in the conservatorship of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Children placed in foster care typically experience various social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties due to abuse, neglect, exploitation, and removal from their family. Many children need professional therapeutic and familial support while experiencing foster care.

Adoption in Texas

When you are thinking about expanding your family, we hope you will consider adopting in Texas. Families take many journeys to achieve the final goal of adoption, internationally, privately, or through foster/kinship care. Pathways can license families for adoption and we can help you find the information you need to determine which path to adoption is right for you. Ready to get started?

Support

Foster/adoptive families are busy people so we send our therapists and clinical experts into each home to provide the individual, family, or group therapy services their children need. Crisis  Management is also available to the caregivers when necessary to help them problem solve and provide support to the child in their home.

Training

Foster/adoptive parents are special people with special skills. We provide training for each parent before children are placed in their home, as well as ongoing training tailored to address the individual issues of the children in their care, and the families’ needs as well. We also work side-by-side with our families within the community to advocate for the services and resources Pathways’ children require.
