Our History

Caring Adoptions was founded as Caring Choices, Inc. by Social Worker and Humanitarian Jo Ann Caldwell in 1990. “Aunt Jo” had a heart big enough for everyone and dedicated her life to serving parents and children—35 years in adoption and over 50 God-Children from hundreds of domestic placements. Pat and Jerry Bridges, Patrick and Susan Waindel, and Jody Vick supported her in this endeavor. Working out of “Aunt Jo’s” home, the focus of this group was on the placement of children with loving parents.

A secondary objective was developing a lower cost and more efficient way to complete the adoption process, which led Caring Adoptions to expand its horizons from Houston to all of Texas and orphanages throughout the world. Currently, we focus on domestic infant adoption.

In 1992, tragedy struck “Aunt Jo” while conducting business for Caring Adoptions in the form of a massive heart attack which resulted in her death. Shortly after that, the Caring Adoptions Board of Directors and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services approved the assumption of her responsibilities by Patricia Bridges, Susan Waindel, and Jody Vick.

In April 1993, in recognition of the quality of Caring Adoptions’ services, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services removed the temporary license status. It granted Caring Adoptions a non-expiring license as a child-placing agency.

A period of rapid growth created the need in the fall of 2000 to move to our present offices at 11601 Katy Freeway. In the spring of 2010, we expanded with additional office space on the first floor and a new conference room for our Adoption 101 and parenting classes. In 2013, we moved all our offices to the first floor of the same building.

In 2015, Stephanie Warren, a long-time employee of the agency and Birthmother Case Manager, was named Executive Director.
