Adoption

Have you thought about opening your heart and your home to a child? The need has never been greater for families to provide a permanent and loving home to children in the foster care system.

TLC is licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services; we have a full-service adoption license. We serve Sonoma County, Mendocino County, Marin County, Napa, Solano, and Lake counties. Our core Adoption Program helps place foster children from birth to 21 years of age in fost-adopt homes. We also provide some services for domestic infant adoptions.

We are looking for people with big hearts and a love of children, whose employment, housing, relationships, and health are stable. TLC welcomes families. TLC Child & Family Services finalizes approximately 50 adoptions annually.

For more information contact Susan Fette, MFT, Associate Director at 707 634-9932 (Para información en español, (707) 823-7300 y oprima el “1”).

Foster Care

TLC Child & Family Services trains and certifies foster families who open their homes and their hearts to children. Becoming a foster parent can make a tremendous difference in the life of a child. There are over 80,000 foster care children in California, many of whom have been abused and/or neglected, and are in need of the stable, loving home environment that foster parents can provide.

We understand that the foster parenting process can be difficult and, at the same time, be an immensely rewarding experience. We take pride in the services we provide to foster parents and the children in their care.

TLC offers a full range of support services including:

  • Adoption planning, placement, and assistance through the finalization process
  • Adoption assessments
  • Generous payments to foster care and fost-adopt parents
  • Ongoing parent groups for training and support
  • Post-adoption services
  • 24 hour on call service and crisis intervention
  • Planning, placement, post placement services for foster care children
  • Weekly or bi-weekly home visits and counseling
  • Parent groups for training and support

Services may also include family counseling, development of community resources, treatment and educational planning and individual child assessment. In addition, TLC has a regional office in Mendocino County that provides foster care and adoption services as well as an Emergency Children’s Shelter.
