Welcome to Families with Children from Asia.  Founded in 1995, FCA supports adoptive families in the greater Albany, New York area. 

FCA's goals include providing socialization opportunities, cultural activities and information to waiting families.   

Our families have adopted children primarily from China but also from other countries. We are committed to diversity and welcome all adoptive families, regardless of origin.

We hope you will visit us often to find out about upcoming events and to get information on adoption, cultural resources and more!

 Feel free to contact us for more information.
