We adopted from foster care and our son Silent One is one of the best things to have ever happened in our lives. This holiday, help give children what they really want – a family and place to call home. Please re-blog this message to let people know great kids are waiting to be adopted!
As an extra bonus, Bloggin’ Mamas and Element Associates are donating a toy to a child in foster care for every blog post sharing this information, up to 25.
Today, 402,000 children are in the foster care system in the United States. Nearly 102,000 children (under 18 years of age) waiting for adoption.
During this holiday season, there’s an extra push to help them find homes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, AdoptUSKids and the Ad Council recently unveiled a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) designed to continue to encourage the adoption of children from foster care with an emphasis on the importance of keeping siblings together.
