Family is Forever
As an adoptive mother of two beautiful children, Joseph and Nicole, I know how lonely you can feel when you are struggling with parenting an adoptive child. Every adoptive family needs the continued support of a strong post adoption team. We all need resources and guidance through our journey to help us with the daily challenges in our lives. With better understanding and communication comes a stronger family unit. A strong and stable family unit brings joy and happiness into your lives. Remember, adoptive parents are special and unique individuals. In order to be a successful parent you need to take care of yourself first so that you can be a better parent to your child.
This is what adoption means to me:
A- Adventure of a lifetime
O- Opportunity to form a family
P- Problem solving
O- Over the top!
N- Never ending love
- Joann Buttaro- Executive Director.
WE BELIEVE ALL children DESERVE A LOVING, NURTURING, PERMANENT FAMILY.

Who are we?
COAC's mission is to proactively identify, develop, recruit, stabilize, and strengthen family systems to provide permanent, loving, and nurturing homes to children.
COAC's vision is to ensure that every child has a permanent, loving, nurturing home and family.
COAC serves adoptive families who have adopted a child through foster care, domestically, and internationally. We also provide supportive services to kinship caregiving families.
COAC provides supportive services and develops permanency plans with families living with HIV/AIDS to ensure that children will not have to enter the foster care system if parents are no longer able to care for the children. Meet the staff.
The New York Council on Adoptable Children (COAC) welcomes all applicants regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ethnicity, national origin, and marital, veteran, financial or citizenship status.
