Connecting Children with Families.

Our Services

The adoption program at A Better Chance for Our Children (ABCFOC) is unique in many ways.  At the heart of our unique approach is that we work almost exclusively to place children who are in foster care and who are considered to have special needs.

Children in foster care need safe, loving homes in which they can thrive until they return to their birth families or find permanent families through adoption. Yours might just be the home a child is waiting for!

We provide a full array of post adoption support in Delaware. Our programs are open to ALL adoptive families in Delaware as well as families in Delaware who have guardianship of children who have exited from the State of Delaware foster care system. These programs are FREE to adoptive families.

We believe that therapeutic services for foster and adopted children are most successful when they are provided by adoption-competent and trauma-informed professionals.

Be a part of Connecting Children with Families!

For many, it is just not possible to take an active role in the lives of these children. However, in the next 30 seconds you can make a difference! When you support A Better Chance for Our Children, you invest in a brighter future for our children, youth, and families starting today.

Playful Attachment : A Day of Fun and Connection for Adoptive Families

Click here to view flyer.

FREE workshop available to ALL Delaware adoptive parents and their children by adoption ages 5-12

(Max 1 child per parent)

Get ready to learn and connect through play! Not sure how? That’s okay, we will make it safe and comfortable for you and your child. This workshop will dive in to the practical, giving you practice with activities to improve connection with your child.

When a child is used to experiencing life through the defense system of his/her brain, the effect on parents is exhausting. It’s so hard to stay open for connection when faced with opposition, rejection and defensiveness. This workshop will provide a little info for parents (childcare provided for children during that time) and a lot of simple, fun activities to reawaken joy between parent and child. It encourages bonding, increased safety, mutual trust and lowered defenses. Putting this in practice at home can breathe new life into stuck relationships. Plus, can’t we all use a little more laughter and fun?
