“We have greatly appreciated Char Lanning’s warm, friendly personality on our adoption journey! She clearly cares about children and families. Her demeanor truly is exceptional. Additionally, we were extremely impressed with Char’s experience and expertise about children’s behavior and management strategies. She has a wealth of knowledge along with extensive resources including many, many books she happily shares with families. We are absolutely appreciative of our experience with Families Through Adoption and feel very blessed!”

Hague Accredited Adoption Agency
Families Through Adoption was organized exclusively for charitable purposes. Specifically, Families Through Adoption (FTA) was formed to assist families from the conception of the adoption plan to child independence. The organization seeks to build families through placement of orphans in healthy and safe homes and then to support those families until the child reaches adulthood.
There are orphans throughout the world whose development, health, and safety could be improved immeasurably by placement in a “forever family.” There is a growing awareness among Americans that adoption is a viable and meaningful way to parenthood. Families Through Adoption seeks to join needy orphans with families who need children to parent, protect, and care for. Since the cost of adoption can be an insurmountable obstacle for prospective parents, We seek to offer services at a minimal cost and to partner with other providers who share the vision of affordable adoptions.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS MY CHILD?
There are millions of children waiting for their forever families. These children are in every country in this planet. But God knows where your child is. He tells us in His Word, “You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm139:13), and “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11) If you are being led by God to adopt, the question becomes “Lord, where is my child?” Please contact us if you would like more information about programs and resources that can be used to help in this process. Remember, if this is God’s will He will direct your path and lead you to your child.
