As our founder, Dave Thomas, always said,

“These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.”

Changing the Journey for Serenity and Kai

In 2018, Kathryn and John shared their journey to adopt siblings Serenity and Kai through the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada’s Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.

In 2021, the Foundation had a chance to visit with the family again to hear how things are going. With John and Kathryn’s support, Serenity, Kai and their sister, Abby, have the bond of a loving, forever family.

“I feel like all brothers and sisters should be together,” says 9-year-old Kai. “I just want her [Serenity] to have the best life she can.”
