Adoption & Foster Care near

San Antonio Community Resource Directory
Online and Virtual Assistance

Adoption, abandonment, child advocacy and welfare present unique challenges and issues that require a particular understanding, empathy and compassion to address.

The presence and love of God for those who are forgotten and discarded purposefully is in acute and constant demand. Jesus is there for them all, but the guilt, shame and secrets perpetuated by families can be oppressive and cruel. I believe it is all in my calling to reach, teach, love and lead in this topic.

An Adoption Evaluation, sometimes informally called a “social study” is defined by the Texas Family Code as “a pre-placement or post-placement evaluative process through which information and recommendations regarding adoption of a child may be made to the court, the parties, and the parties’ attorneys” [Texas Family Code, Subchapter E, Section 107.151(1)].

Adoption evaluations are ordered by the Court in connection with adoptions, including private adoptions and step-parent adoptions. An adoption evaluation involves home visits, interviews of parents and children (both those to be adopted and any others living in the home) observation of the prospective adoptive parent and the child interacting with one another, background checks, and other elements that are defined by law. Adoption evaluations when the Department of Family and Protective Services are different than the evaluations performed for private adoption and are not a service we provide at this time. If you have questions about what type of adoption evaluation applies in your situation, you may need to consult an attorney who practices family law.

All Evaluators on the Bexar County Domestic Relations Office Evaluators List who can provide Custody Evaluations as described above also meet the qualifications outlined in the Texas Family Code for providing Adoption Evaluations. Cherie Shelter provides adoption studies in Bexar and surrounding counties on a limited basis. She also provides oversight for the following providers who are also on the Bexar County Evaluators List: Corrina Espinosa Herrera, LPC-S; Lillian Little, LMSW; and Elvira Marquez, LPC.

Those interested in having Cherie, Corrina, Lillian, or Elvira ordered to provide an adoption study may contact our office directly at 210-822-2600 or may contact the Bexar County Domestic Relations office at 210-335-1242 or visit their website at: https://www.bexar.org/3186/Domestic-Relations-Office

Evaluators listed on the Bexar County Domestic Relations Office’s list of evaluators have already been determined to meet the qualifications required by law. Those that provide adoption evaluations have indicated so and may have provided a starting estimate of costs: https://www.bexar.org/DocumentCenter/View/23558/Child-Custody-Evaluators-List-PDF?bidld=

Supervised Visitation refers to any visit between a child and an adult or adults in that child’s life that is supervised for whatever reason (such as to ensure the safety of the child, to document behaviors of the child and parent such as in a reunification situation, or to protect the parent from being falsely accused of hurting the child when there have been false allegations by another adult in the past).

Alamo Heights Counseling has a contract with the Department of Family and Protective Services to provide independent objective observers to observe interactions between children in DFPS legal cases and can when sufficient staff are available, provide observers for visits that are ordered by judges outside children’s court as well (such as when ordered by a District Court judge in a family law matter).

Parties or their attorneys may contact our office for additional information or may contact the Bexar County Domestic Relations Office for a reference

Alamo Heights Counseling provides supervised visitation on a limited basis when other resources in Bexar County are inaccessible or have been deemed not to be a good fit. While we are generally able to provide services on relatively short notice, it is imperative that we have a copy of the Court Order and that both parties sign our contract and pay all fees in full before visitation can begin.

 In rare instances when there is no court order but parties agree that one party’s time with the children will be supervised, we may be able to provide an independent observer, but will need documentation of the agreement between the parties.

Workshops focus on Education, Employment, Personal Living, Health and Safety, and Support

What are Movin' On Workshops?

Unconventional, interactive workshops that encourage  youths ages 13 - 19 years of age to "think" and develop skills while having fun.  Youth are taught to use the skills that they do not even realize they have to solve real world issues and deal with challenges that they will face after leaving foster care.

YTIA recognizes that youth learn in a variety of ways and that preparing to leave foster care begins when you enter foster care and that is why our Movin' On Workshops are:

  • Tailored to meet youths where they are in life
  • Divided into three categories based on the youths age and/or ability
  • Can be created specifically for the youths needs
  • Focus on specific categories of life skills
  • Have an emphasis on preventing and /or mitigating legal effects

Workshops are divided into three categories:

  • Get Ready - Designed for youth 13 - 15 years of age.  
  • Transitioning Out - Designed for youth 16 - 18 years of age. 
  • 18 and Free - Designed for youth 18 and older who want to know what it's really like once you "age out of the system"  or who have "aged out of the system" and need help making it on their own.

It’s no wonder that 50% of children and 42% of adolescents in foster care have significant mental health issues or disorders. Life in foster care is unpredictable.

BCFS Health and Human Services Residential Services Division Foster Care and Adoption strives to keep children with their biological family, but when a child’s parents are unable to make the necessary changes to regain custody of their children, the state or federal government will move to place the child in the next best situation for their growing needs: with adoptive parents.

Our Foster Care and Adoption Program in San Antonio and surrounding counties licenses and trains families to open their homes and hearts to children ready to live in a family setting, both through short-term foster care and forever adoption. We are creating forever families!

SJRC Texas is looking for individuals and families to open their homes and hearts to children in foster care and adoption. Becoming a foster or adoptive parent is a great way to help children in need, give back and strengthen the community.

Foster families are individuals or families that provide a safe and loving place for foster children to live. They provide a normal living environment, help children build self-esteem, learn social skills and provide opportunities to create happy childhood memories. You also have the opportunity to give a child a forever home, through adoption.

Adoption is the goal for many children placed in foster care. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) requires all foster children to be placed in a foster home for a minimum of 6-months before they are eligible for adoption. SJRC Texas works with foster-to-adopt families during this time to prepare them for the adoption and is there every step of the way to guide the families through to the consummation of the adoption.

There are also many other ways to support our amazing children and their foster families. You can help to spread the word about our program, become trained and licensed to provide Respite Care or babysitting for our foster families or volunteer to provide other needed help and support to our foster families.
