OFY Cares Blog

An adoptive mother recently said, “This is going so much better than we ever would have thought.  Our daughter just blended right into our family!”  She explained that so many people have been so supportive to them throughout this adoption journey including their church congregation, the adoption support group at their church, the placing agency, the local, Ohio agency, and their family and friends.    

It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything for the home page. Hey! Did you miss me?

I thought so. We have been busy forging a partnership with an agency that we believe will be a good thing for everyone involved.

Options for Families and Youth (OFY) has decided to transition the administration, management and supervision of our counseling/therapy services (better known as Behavioral Health Services) to Pathway Caring for Children (Pathway CFC).

The title above speaks for itself. The past two months have been extremely demanding in terms of staff time and effort. It’s been energy-draining but also a fruitful time. I’d like to take few sentences to single out a few prominent moments:

OFY is currently developing funds for 2 initiatives in Uganda. Both of these projects, when completed, will improve the quality of life for poverty stricken Ugandan children and their families. 


The beginning of April marked an important time in OFY history with the finalization of our first Domestic Adoption! OFY guided the Johnson Family through the adoption process, making the day of finalization special for everyone in attendance. Congratulations to the Johnsons!
