Currently, more than 120,000 children are legally free for adoption in the United States with more than 6,700 children available for adoption in Texas. Buckner is dedicated to recruiting and approving loving, qualified adoptive homes to help children achieve permanency through our various adoption ministries.

Waiting Texas Children

Provide permanent homes for children in foster care whose parents’ rights have been terminated and the children are legally free for adoption through Child Protective Services. Many of these children awaiting adoption are older children and teenagers or in a sibling group. If they are never adopted, children anywhere between ages 18 and 21 will “age out” of the system with limited or no support or care.

Foster-to-adopt

Provide permanent homes for children who, after residing in your foster care, become legally free for adoption. Buckner is both a licensed Texas foster care provider (partially funded by Texas Department of Family and Protective Services) and a licensed adoption agency, so our foster-to-adopt services offer you the possibility to adopt from foster care should adoption become part of the child’s plan.

Domestic Infant and Child Adoption Program

Provide permanent homes for infants or children whose birth parents have made a voluntary plan of open adoption and want to maintain a relationship with the adoptive family.
