Toby entered foster care when he was one year old and for 11 years he bounced between residential treatment and foster homes that weren’t a good fit for his forever family. His Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter got to know Toby and knew she could make his dream of a family come true. Perhaps serendipitously, another recruiter had a family very interested in adopting, but unfamiliar with the process. Toby’s recruiter did her homework and soon realized this family could be Toby’s family. By following the child-focused model, she researched and asked the right questions before making an introduction and when the family met Toby, it was a match. Toby’s new family is helping him work through some behavioral issues and now that he is a stable home, his doctors are confident that he will thrive.
