Waiting for a family


Waiting for a family is the longest wait of all.

Despite the fact that we live in one of the most fortunate nations in the world, there are 515,000 children in foster care, with 155,000 children waiting to be adopted.

Over 20,000 children age out of foster care every year without a family to call their own.

For these children, every day that passes without a family of their own is an eternity. This is what compels Adopt America Network to prioritize finding permanent lifelong connections for these children. Many of the children that we work with have experienced complex trauma and/or have other factors that create barriers, and lead to them lingering and waiting in the system for far too long!

Perhaps the best way to really see what our organization is all about is to learn about the children who are available for adoption who so richly deserve an end to the waiting, and have a family to call their own.
