Adoptions Services

November 2016 is observed as National Adoptions Month. For over two decades, National Adoption Month has been celebrated across the country. Many national; State;  local agencies; and foster, kinship care, and adoptive family groups will arrange programs, events, and activities during the month of November to raise awareness for children and youth in foster care who are waiting for permanent families.

There are a number of local services in the State of Oklahoma to assist with the adoption process.  Fairview Baptist Church is a supportive church of One Church One Child of Oklahoma, a nationally recognized non-profit special recruitment program designed to find foster and adoptive homes for children. It provides an organized method of reaching out to the community through churches and other organizations to explain the needs of children in the child welfare system who have been abused and neglected.   *One Church One Child of Oklahoma is listed with the Central Oklahoma Combined Federal Campaign through United Way.  Please consider providing support by sharing your tax-deductible donation.

The Oklahoma Department of Human Services provides a wealth of assistance and guidance in fostering and adoptive services. 

Consider giving your heart and your home to a child in need.  Become a foster / adoptive parent.
