"ASFC showed us that our dream really could come true." Adoptive parent
For nearly 50 years, Adoption Support for Families and Children Inc. (ASFC) has supported families and children brought together through intercountry, local and expat adoption in Western Australia. Since it was formed by a group of committed parents in 1972 under the name ASIAC WA (the organisation was also known as Australia for Children before formally becoming ASFC in 1999) the lives of thousands of children and their families have been enriched and nurtured.
ASFC Incorporated is coordinated by committed volunteers as a member based not for profit organisation with registered charity status in Western Australia. We are the only adoption support group in Western Australia and membership is open to prospective applicants in the process, adoptive families and adult adoptees. Adoptive families come in many shapes and sizes and include children born locally or overseas. All adoptive families are different; some have biological children, step or foster children, but they all share one thing in common, that is their love for each other.
The adoption process can be a little daunting at times and just like any other family, bringing up children can be challenging too! That's where ASFC come in. We're here to support families through the adoption process, when you transition into a family and beyond. We understand that being an adoptee may throw up some unique issues on the journey of life so we're there to provide ongoing support through out the lifespan.
ASFC provides a range of support services including education seminars for prospective adoptive parents and fantastic family events throughout the year.
