What's New At FFTA?

On Sunday, March 30th, 2014, FFTA held their annual Family Fun Day Bowling event, at the Scarsdale Golf Club bowling alley. In attendance were many FFTA "forever families", along with staff, members of the board, friends and FFTA supporters. Those who attended came from near and as far away as Canada and the Hamptons, despite the bad rains and had a wonderful afternoon.


Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc.

Welcome to the home of Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc. My name is Joy Goldstein, and FFTA is a New York authorized and Connecticut-licensed, non-profit 501c3, adoption placement agency and resource center located in the Rye Brook/Port Chester area of Westchester County only 35 minutes outside of New York City.  FFTA was founded by my husband, Michael and myself in 2007, recognizing that every child has the right to grow up in a loving, nurturing, secure and forever home.  

After more than 25 years of helping to create "forever families" through adoption and over 2,500 successful placements through Michael’s law firm, we had earned a reputation within the adoption community for unsurpassed personalized service and operational excellence.

As a three-time adoptive parent, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to help guide prospective birth and adoptive parents through the adoption process and am confident that the committed and capable staff I have assembled at FFTA of adoptive parents, social workers, attorneys and adoptees, will help to create many forever families for years to come.

Whether client or colleague, you become a member of the FFTA family the moment we begin to work together. As such, FFTA pledges to be available to you so that no matter what, when or where your need, we will be there for you. We will continue to commit ourselves to being the best in our field, and to working tirelessly to ensure that all of the children we help place will grow up in their "forever families."

Adoption helps make dreams come true for everyone involved. Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc. is a dream come true for us and we hope for you, too.

Mission Statement

Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc. is a non-profit adoption placement agency and resource center founded by social workers and adoptive parents with the belief that every child eligible for permanent adoption, regardless of racial or ethnic background, or physical or emotional challenge, has the right to grow up in a loving, nurturing, secure, and forever home.

Inspired by our experience and many years of service in the adoption field and community, it is this agency’s goal to unite children in need with their forever families and to help keep “harder to place” children out of the state system through domestic and international adoptions.

FFTA seeks to educate the community about adoption and related parenting issues; and to promote a positive
experience for everyone involved through the counseling, education and support we provide to our clients.

FFTA is committed to treating all persons with respect, dignity and compassion and welcomes all families regardless of race, religion, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, nationality or disability.

FFTA will ensure, to the best of our ability, that the dream of building and maintaining families through adoption becomes a reality.

The rainbow flag endorses gay rights without making a statement about the person- it's an all-purpose symbol which can be used by anyone regardless of their own sexual orientation. This aspect has also made the rainbow flag useful for displaying in businesses which are "gay friendly," but which may not necessarily be owned or operated by a gay or bisexual person. This kind of equality and all- inclusiveness is what the gay rights movement strives for.
