Texas Christian Adoptions, LLC has over 28 years of experience in the field of adoption. We are a licensed child placing agency that provides professional guidance in pre- and post-adoptive services for both Expecting Mothers and Adoptive Families. It is important that our Expectant Mothers find peace about their decision, which is why we offer professional counseling services and a Support Group to help them find that peace.
Our objectives are to help Expecting Mothers determine if placement is in the best interest of both them and their child. Second, to place newborns up to three years of age with families who desire to adopt a child. Third, for Expectant Mothers who decide on adoption, we help them through the emotional and legal processes of adoption.
Our goal is to ensure solid placements by guiding our Expectant Mothers in a supportive manner, and assisting them in a healthy recovery from normal grief and separation loss issues.
We try to encourage our clients with the knowledge that God is faithful and loves His children. That the obstacles they are encountering are really opportunities to see God work in their life.
Texas Christian Adoptions, LLC offers open, semi-open, and closed adoptions. Semi-open adoptions are the most common type of adoption. It means that first names are shared and the Birth parents would be receiving updates and pictures until the child is 18 years old. The Birthparents can also send correspondences and gifts for the child if they felt comfortable doing so.
Texas Christian Adoptions, LLC is a proud member of the Better Business Bureau.
We are also licensed by the Department of Family and Protective Services. To learn more about them and how they serve the community, you can go to their website: https://www.dfps.state.tx.us/default.asp

Joy White LMSW
Birthparent Specialist / Support Group Facilitator
After her birth, it took me about 10 years to work my way back around to my calling: The Birthmom Journey. I attended UTA to receive my Masters in Social Work with a focus on Children and Families, and in May of 2019 I received my license. This is my passion. I desire to help other Birthmothers with first hand knowledge of how it feels to be in their shoes. Let them know they are not alone and I am here for them. God works in beautiful ways by turning hard situations into beautiful journeys of joy.
