New Beginnings Adoption Criteria

The New Beginnings State Adoption Program is a highly specialized program involving unique and sometimes difficult situations. Families are selected by their ability to provide love, care and experience necessary for each individual child or infant's needs. Adoptive families must also be prepared to procure the needed medical resources, although staff will assist in the attainment of subsidies for qualifying families.

This program is only open to families currently residing in the State of Texas.

  • Be at least 21 years of age, financially stable, and responsible mature adults
  • Complete an application
  • Share information regarding your background and lifestyle
  • Provide relative and non-relative references
  • Show proof of marriage and/or divorce
  • Agree to a home study which includes visits with all household members
  • Allow staff to complete a criminal history background check and an abuse/neglect check on all adults in the household
