Who We Are
The members of Adoptive Families of Houston (AFH) believe that adoptive families can benefit from the education, guidance, and support of professionals and parents who have shared in the unique experience of adoption.
With the needs of adoptive parents and children in mind, Adoptive Families of Houston offers a variety of activities each year including educational programs, monthly playgroups for the children and an annual family picnic.
To create more timely opportunities for connectivity, Adoptive Families of Houston recently began distributing a newsletter, created a book club, initiated two Facebook pages and redesigned our web site. In the future, we hope to introduce meaningful programs for older adopted children and host an adoption conference in Houston.
Adoptive Families of Houston is not affiliated with any agency, church, or organization. Anyone is welcome to join.
