Agape offers adoption services to those those experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption as an option and also for those looking to adopt. If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption as an option for your child, we are here for you to provide love, encouragement and hope – without judgment.
How do we provide loving
homes for our children?
We welcome applications for adoptive families. We always strive to honor the wishes of our maternity clients to the highest degree possible. It has been the trend of late for our maternity clients to specifically request homes of African-American ethnicity for their child’s permanent placement. To that end, we are gratefully accepting applications and we have staff standing by to assist all families by walking through this process with them.
We encourage interested families to email Gina McNeil or call 901-323-3600.

What counseling and support services do you provide before and after a child is adopted?
Memphis Family Connection Center is designed to support and serve anyone touched by adoption. Whether you are an adult adoptee, a birth parent, or an adoptive family, or are struggling through bonding or other post-adoptive issues, the team at MFCC will work to help your family heal.
Located at 815 N. McLean Blvd. in Memphis, MFCC provides connection-based, trauma-informed care to the Shelby County, TN adoptive, foster care, and special needs community. MFCC launched as an independent organization in the fall of 2018 after being a part of the Agape Child & Family Services offerings since 2014. We are proud to continue our partnership with this organization that provides holistic attachment-centered counseling, occupational therapy, speech therapy, calming techniques, nutrition plans, sensory care, resources, and educational support through the TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) model.
