Adoptive Families With Information & Support (AFIS) is a nonprofit organization founded more
than 25 years ago by adoptive parents in the state of Delaware.
Delaware Children’s Department – Heart Gallery
As these families worked with local agencies to finalize their children's adoptions, they came to learn that adoption is a
lifetime journey that continues long after the process has been finalized.
They recognized the need for a way to connect with other adoptive families-
to share both the victories and struggles of this journey.
AFIS was made up of just a few families initially and over the years has grown to a membership of more than 600
individuals, families, and professionals whose lives have been touched by adoption.
AFIS is not affiliated with, nor are we, an adoption agency. We are a volunteer organization dedicated to
providing the information, support, and encouragement necessary to improve the quality of life within adoptive families.
Every adoption experience is unique and our families reflect the diversity of those experiences.
About the gallery
On any given day, there are nearly 100 children in Delaware who are looking for a forever family. Each child is unique and in need
of the love and support only a family can provide. Every month, two children who are currently available for adoption in Delaware
will be highlighted in this online Heart Gallery.
