Adoptive Families


OFCA has included adoptive families in the OFCA movement since the 1980’s. This was due to adoptive families voicing their feeling of neglect after the completion of an adoption and because of the need for post-adoptive services.


OFCA recognizes these needs for support to carry out and sustain permanent commitments in adoptive families. We provide pre- and post-adoption information; updates on current issues and pending legislation; local and statewide resources; and opportunities for mutual support.
