Adopt a Child in Youth Villages’ Care
In the other states we serve, our counselors work with state officials to facilitate adoption for children who cannot return to their birth families.
Right now, dozens of Youth Villages kids in Tennessee are looking for adoption, ranging in age from five to 18. Profiles are available for many of the children eligible for adoption.
They have received counseling and good care from us. To reach their full potential, all they need now is the kind of security that only a real family can provide.
We began our adoption program in 1999 as a natural extension of our treatment foster care program. For some people, fostering a child with special needs is the first step toward adoption. Many of our foster parents adopt the children in their homes when they become eligible for adoption. Other parents come to us with adoption as their immediate goal.
