Who    are    we?

AFIS is an organization of adoptive families, prospective adoptive families, adoption professionals, and adoption advocates. We believe in a permanent home for every child. The AFIS membership is dedicated to providing support, encouragement and information. We are not an adoption agency. Our goal is to meet the needs of everyone touched by adoption, and to benefit the community at large.

WHAT
DO WE DO?

AFIS, in conjunction with Delaware Technical and Community College, Stanton Campus, offers a course entitled Family Building Through Adoption. It is designed to educate prospective adoptive parents about the adoption process. This popular 4-week evening course is offered twice a year.
The annual Celebrate Adoption event is a celebration of families, cultures, diversity and adoption. It is held on the first Saturday of November, National Adoption Month. It provides an opportunity to interact with new and veteran adoptive families and adoption agency personnel, and to enjoy multi-cultural foods and fun.
