Foster care adoption is often misunderstood, preventing children from having forever families.

Get informed and spread the word.

There are more than 130,000 children in foster care waiting to be adopted

and we believe that every child is adoptable.

The average waiting child is 8 years old

and he or she will spend more than 3 years in foster care.

Every year 22,000 children age out of foster care

leaving them without families of their own and putting them at risk for negative outcomes.

Foster care adoption is not expensive

and no child should linger in care or leave the system without a permanent family of his or her own.

Children served by the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program

are up to 3 times more likely to get adopted.
