We're helping children find  

forever homes.

Adoption is the legal process through which a child joins a family different from his or her birth parents. Children are matched with a caring family who has been educated about their needs and embrace them into their family. In contrast to foster care, which is temporary, adoption is a permanent, lifelong commitment to a child.

TGIF has been licensed with Texas Department of Family Services for adoption since 2003. We work with children that are currently waiting in the foster care system and whose parental rights have been terminated. We work with children all throughout the state of Texas that need to find their forever home.

If you have the heart for adoption, don't let fear stand in the way.
