Pregnancy & Adoption

Adopt an Older Child

FOCUS (Finding Our Children Unconditional Support) is a program designed to ask families to consider the possibility of adopting an older child in foster care. In the state of Tennessee, there are hundreds of unclaimed children with no prospect of a forever family. Our calling is to recruit/find families to open their hearts and homes to a child in foster care. Children ages 9 and up are especially in need of adoptive homes.

Our program will walk families through the challenges and joys of the adoption process. Our Adoption Support and Preservation Program (ASAP) will give families the tools to overcome the obstacles that families might face in bringing adopted children into their home.

Can you be the promise of family for one of these children? Call Denise Cottrell at (615) 352-3087 x 236.
