November is National Adoption Month — a special time to celebrate families that have grown through adoption and raise awareness of the more than 125,000 children waiting in foster care in the United States.

For six years, the sisters bounced between foster homes and living with their birth parents. In 2017, they were adopted with help from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and support of our generous donors.

During National Adoption Month and throughout the year, thank you for being a part of our special community of supporters. Together, we will achieve the vision that every child will have a permanent home and a loving family.
