There are some incredible foster care, adoption, and kinship resources out there.  Below are a few of my favorites.

Newfound Families Virginia

NewFound Families is the Virginia adoptive, foster, and kinship family association. They provide educational, advocacy, and support services to families caring for children unable to live with their birth parents.


Family-Match seeks to decrease the time to adoption placement and match children to families where they will flourish. Participating families with approved home studies will get an unprecedented opportunity to be identified by child welfare workers across Florida, who will begin using Family-Match to connect children with compatible families in Summer of 2018.

With 238,000+ members, is the largest online adoption community. They are thrilled to serve as the internet's go-to source for all aspects of the adoption journey, helping thousands of successful adoptive families, and thousands of reunited adoptees and birthparents to date. 

Adopt US Kids

AdoptUSKids educates families about foster care and adoption and gives child welfare professionals information and support to help them improve their services. They also maintain the nation’s only federally funded photo-listing service that connects waiting children with families.

Connecting Hearts In Virginia

Through fundraising and network of passionate volunteers, Connecting Hearts in Virginia strives to give children in foster care a brighter future, a sense of normalcy, and belonging.
