May Is National Foster Care Month

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Did you know it would take less than 1% of the U.S. population to provide a family for every child in foster care?  

May is National Foster Care Month and there has never been a greater need to bring attention to children waiting for forever homes.  More than 463,000 children are currently in foster care and 123,000 children are waiting to be adopted.  

Children in foster care are loving children.  They are children like Shaquane and Edlina and Albert.  Every child deserves to have a home with caring and supportive parents. 

Help us spread the message this month to reach all Americans and teach them about the love and joy that foster care adoption can bring to your life.
