The Sibling Connection

Siblings have a profound bonds than can make the foster/adoption experience less painful when they are able to remain together. This video shares the experiences of one group of siblings who were adopted separately and their reunion years later.

Journey to Adoption

The Journey to Adoption Video is a presentation for adoptive families who are awaiting placement of a child in the OKDHS foster care system.  The video provides the family a preview of the adoption process and hopefully answers general questions and/or generates questions for the adoptive family to ask their adoption specialist.

Public Service Announcements ( 2009 )

AdoptUsKids.org and the Ad Council created these Public Service Announcements to remind everyone that “you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. There are thousands of teens in foster care that would love to put up with you.”

The Road to Adoption

Listen to actual foster and adoptive parents as they share their impressions, thoughts, trials and victories on the road to adoption and foster care, and the foster and adoptive children whose lives have been changed by the compassion of others.
