Welcome Oregon Families

Adopting from foster care is the hardest most life-changing, remarkable thing you might ever do.

"Imagine a world where the cry of every child is met by a loving, compassionate adult."

- Dr. Karyn Purvis, TCU - Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development

Are you preauthorized?

Only preauthorized Oregon families can use OARE to view children.

Don't worry! You can still view children available for adoption on the Northwest Adoption Exchange.

Go to NWAE

Prepare passionately!

This journey is not for the faint of heart. Read. Watch. Learn. Seek out many hours of training and education around trauma, grief, loss and the other vulnerabilities of kids in care so you are prepared and ready to meet their needs.

Are you still in?

Good! We hoped you would be. Every Oregon child deserves a family who is relentlessly committed to their well being. If you are already preauthorized, please apply now! Otherwise, learn more below.
