Understanding the Adoption Process
The need for support from the Goochland Christmas Mother program reached an all time high. In 2020, 253 families were given a happier Christmas thanks to the work of hundreds of volunteers and support from the community. We are able to offset some of this demand by finding adoptive families such as yourself to provide an individual or family with the same items our program would provide.
Our first goal is to match you with a family of your liking. Each applicant/recipient who has applied to our program is carefully screened for eligibility. From the group of recipients, we match adopters with a family. Some may want a family with children, some prefer the elderly or a single individual. We will do all that we can to find a match for you. We will contact you personally to discuss your options. We will send you information about what is expected of you.
We then ask that you deliver directly to the family by Saturday, December 10th. This date is especially important as this is the day we wrap up our own delivery to families within our program.
