My heart opened wide when my daughter was placed in my arms and again a few years later when my sons emerged from the airplane that brought them home to me. My heart opened so wide it was as if I birthed them from my heart.

There is always a place in my heart for the women that gave birth to these beautiful children and who are not here to see them smile nor wipe their tears. There is always a place in my heart for all birth-parents who against the very fiber of their being; with their hearts breaking open with Love, chose adoption and allowed us to help. Adoption can be a miracle when it is right for everyone.

Joyful World Ministries doing business as All Age Adoption Plus is a full service, Christian, licensed, non-profit agency committed to providing individual care and attention to help you as an expectant parent, not ready to parent; or you who are waiting for a child to come into your home; and foremost the child who needs a secure, safe family where they can meet their highest potential.

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.

Such a wonderful and professional adoption agency. We used All Age Adoptions for our home study and they were efficient, detail oriented, and so helpful. Cathrine always answered any questions we had and responded quickly to us when we needed help. The agency provided us with everything we needed to finalize our daughter’s adoption and we are so grateful. We will definitely be using this agency again for any future adoptions.

All Ages Adoption is very attentive to customer needs. I am having a very positive experience with them. They are helping guide us through the maze of legalities, notarizations, and apostilles.

I came to this place at the end of my rope. I knew I couldn't be the parent my son needed. No matter how much I wanted to be.

My experience with them was very gentle. The kindness and professionalism was amazing.

Very disappointed in the way they handled our documents. Very disorganized and disrespectful to our privacy.

We would highly recommend working with All age adoptions plus. We had our home study completed with them, we would have loved to use them as our agency to adopt from however, they have a waitlist for domestic infant adoptions and recommended that we use a nationwide agency. Cathrine is very much rooted in the adoption world, and she answered SO many questions that we had. We were met with patience, kindness and professionalism. Kate did our home study, and she has been a huge support to us throughout the process as well. Thank you All Age for being an integral part of this journey for us!
