Adoption Assistance Agency exists to help children join families who will love, nurture, protect, and embrace them for a lifetime. We believe it is our heavenly Father who creates families and we have seen Him faithfully create so many loving adoptive families. Our non-profit identity enables us to raise charitable funds to accomplish many significant and worthwhile goals.

The first is to defray the costs of birthmothers who plan adoption and then change their mind. This enables the adoptive family to have their birthmother's expense fee apply to another adoption, rather than losing that fee. In addition to helping children find their loving families, we strive to help families of limited means through charitable funds who can only have children through the expensive option of adoption. We offer nurturing, education, counseling, and support for families struggling to overcome challenges.

We provide community education for those working with women so that women who become pregnant may have access to full information and make loving, life-giving choices for their children. Women and men who make the courageous and loving choice of placing their child for adoption through Adoption Assistance can receive counseling for issues related to the adoption until the child is 18 as long as the agency is in business. Additional details about our charitable programs can be found elsewhere on our website.

Requirements to become a foster parent

As a foster parent, you should become familiar with the New Mexico Children, Youth, and Families Department. The CYFD website provides information meetings, resource family guides, printables and PDFs, and more.

New foster parents learn much of what they need to know in the state-required training classes. You can find calendars with meeting dates through the CYFD as well. Foster care training occurs before or during an application process.

The purpose of the training is to educate parents on the trauma that foster kids endure and how to provide care with this in mind. You'll also learn about key topics such as cultural sensitivity, appropriate methods of discipline, the legal system and procedures, etc.

This educational service is one of the best forms of support you'll receive. You can also meet other foster parents in training and form connections.

Creating a support group is vital if you want someone on your side when you have questions or concerns. New foster parents will find that connecting with other foster families gives them an opportunity to learn and grow to become better caregivers.

Adoption and foster care agencies provide full support. A local agency can recruit, train, educate, and supervise foster families. Other than the State of New Mexico Children, Youth, and Families Department, there is the Adoption Assistance Agency, Christian Child Placement Services, and Joyful World Ministries All Age Adoptions Plus.

We adopted both our daughters with the assistance of this agency. They are wonderful. They go above and beyond for their clients. They have helped us with counseling issues within our family. They treat you with love and compassion and are judgement free. We love everything about the agency and their employees. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to adopt or looking for help with a pregnancy.

We adopted our daughter 14.5 years ago through AAA. Penny worked with us every step of the way and also showed great love and care for our daughter’s birth mom, which was really important to us. Great folks with big hearts.

In 2008 we adopted our first son and then in 2013 we adopted our second son. We love this agency. They are like our family. They stood by us every step of the way and answered all our questions. They are honest, caring and love what they do. You can’t go wrong choosing them to build your family.

Adoption Assistance Agency is absolutely amazing! The staff is fabulous! They are all very loving, caring, informative, and supportive. They have a way of building and maintaining relationships with both adoptive families and birth parents! They were by our side every step of the way- from the first time we called them, until long after the adoption was finalized. They truly care about the women, children, and families they work with!
