Texas Waiting Children (TARE)

View Waiting Children

In the State of Texas, there are thousands of children in the foster care system that are now legally available for straight adoption. The biological parental rights have been legally terminated and the children are now waiting for a loving, forever family.

On Gladney's A Child to Love website, you will find information about adopting a waiting child - from the process, to the special joys and challenges of waiting child adoption, to the children themselves.

Through the State of Texas, to view photos and profiles of children in need of a forever family, please click on the Texas Adoption Resource Exchange Link.
