You Want to Learn How to Adopt an Infant?

Dear Expectant Parents,

You have many decisions ahead of you and you want what is best for your future child, a child who is already so precious and truly a Blessing from God. Choosing the right Path makes a difference.

Rainbow of Love's philosophy is Unique! We believe that the success of a child's life is closely linked to the parents that raise him or her.

Hence, "Great Parents make a Great Life"!

So, we believe in quality and not quantity. It takes several months for our adoptive applicants to be approved for adoption. They must pass a rigorous home study and background check, be approved, and complete the required training. Rainbow of Love will help you make your adoption plan come true.

One of our Case Managers will make sure that you feel comfortable all along the way and help you to be well prepared financially and emotionally to be parents.


Domestic Infant Adoption Program

Our Domestic Infant Adoption Program places Infants Nationwide. ROL is a Texas licensed social services agency, and we work with local families and families from out of state who have a completed, current and approved home study (with a licensed child placing agency) within their home state. For local families (Houston and surroundings) Rainbow of Love helps you to perform background checks and home study assessments.

We accept applicants for our Domestic Infant Adoption Program during the Spring and the Fall months of each year. If applicants (individuals and couples) meet the criteria during our assessments, they will be welcome into this program.

We are committed to placing a child with every qualified parent without major financial loss. If a birth mother who is putting a child up for adoption changes her mind after the baby is born (the Texas law allows her 48 hours after the delivery), the fees that you have already paid will be rolled over to a second match. Social services will do everything we can to have the right child placed with you.

The average wait to be matched with a baby can vary between 2 weeks after your home study is approved to a maximum of 2 years.

Domestic Preschool Program

It happens that some new born or Toddler (between 0 and 3 years old) are being placed for adoption.

These babies are our priority at Rainbow of Love because their birth parents too late - realize after the delivery - that they should have made an adoption plan during the pregnancy and they want a better future for the baby. 

For that, Rainbow of Love has a dedicated Adoption program that is called Domestic Preschool Program.

Our Domestic Preschool Program places these babies with loving adoptive families. In most cases, our social services will have updated medical and dental records for these young children. Before placement, Rainbow of Love will facilitate a preplacement period.

"Hard to Place" Program

This program helps to place infants between the age of newborn to 24 months old into domestic adoption.  The infants are considered “hard to place” because they fall in the category of having two or more of the following criteria: biological mother is a heavy drinker, or a heavy smoker, or used illegal drugs during pregnancy, or is terminally ill, or had no prenatal care during the pregnancy, family of origin has a history of mental illness, child is from a minority group.

If you are ready to begin the child adoption process, our adoption programs will first help you to make your own adoption plan and see if you prefer an Open, Semi-Open or Closed adoption (vary with the level of connection and confidentiality with the birth parents).

If you’re interested in learning how to adopt a child in Houston, TX, contact us. Below are some important details about our social services agency’s main adoption program types.

What is an Open or Semi-Open Adoption Plan?

An open adoption is a type of adoption in which the birth parents and the adoptive parent(s) have access to varying degrees of each other’s personal information and have an option of contact. It helps maintaining a significant ongoing contact after child placement services. Rainbow of Love has little involvement in this agreement.

A semi-open adoption is similar to an open adoption but the relationship does not include the sharing of identifying information and typically involves the agency as an intermediary for ongoing contact. After child placement services, many semi-open adoptions include mailing photos and letters between adoptive families and birth families, with a program we have called child connect https://www.childconnect.com/. Semi-open adoption is Rainbow of Love’s most successful type of adoption.

What is a Closed Adoption Plan?

Also called “confidential” adoption -and sometimes “secret” adoption - Rainbow of Love makes the adoptive family and the birth parents / baby match. The match is based on desire wishes requested for both the adoptive family and the birth parents.

Records of both parties are kept sealed.

Our Adoptive Families

Our adoptive families are Premium and Private. They come from various backgrounds and work in a wide array of professions. Many of our families have one "stay-at-home" parent and one working parent.

"Rainbow of Love has been a wonderful guide and support for us through our adoption journey. They worked hard to make the process as clear and comfortable as possible for not only us, but also our child’s birthmother. If not for Rainbow of Love, we would not have our child, so to us, Rainbow of Love is priceless."

Heather and Michael

"We are so thankful for Rainbow of Love. We originally lived in a different city in Texas but were in the process of moving to Houston when we decided to adopt. Rainbow of Love was so wonderful in working with us through the adoption process and moving down to Houston. My questions have always been answered promptly and we have always felt taken care of by the staff. We submitted all the paperwork on a Friday and got a call about our daughter on Monday afternoon. We were in shock! Our caseworker and Rainbow of Love handled our adoption with great care and professionalism. We are thankful for their heart for adoption and we are currently in the process of adopting through Rainbow of Love again."


"Leigh Anne Tuohy once said “There are wonderful kids that need families. We don’t believe there are any unwanted kids - we just believe there are unfound families.” 

Rainbow of Love finds those right families for these wonderful children. This adoption agency is with both the birth mother and the adoptive parents every step of the way. They are continuously giving love and support to you throughout your adoption journey. Rainbow of Love makes sure that you are matched with the right child for your family and the right adoption scenario that makes everyone involved feel at ease. Our daughter was the missing piece that Rainbow of Love helped us to find"


"I was in the OR with the birth mom and after he was born the nurses said, “do you want to see your son?”. I will never forget that moment, turning and looking down at him. Our eyes met and it was like the whole room went back and I heard God saying, this is your son. It was the most amazing, beautiful moment."
