After Leaving Foster Care, Young Girl is Returned to Foster Family and Finds Forever Home for Her and Her Sister

Mar 7, 2018 2:00 PM ET

Keeping sibling groups together is one of the main purposes of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s signature adoption program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids. Too often siblings are separated when they enter foster care and our recruiters work hard to help siblings maintain those biological relationships and get adopted by the same family.

That is exactly what happened for sisters Madison and Taylor last June. The Weymouth family first fostered Madison when she was 6 months old, but she soon rejoined her birth family. Two and a half years later, Madison returned to the Weymouth’s home with her younger sister, Taylor. Today the siblings, ages 6 and 4, are thriving together in their forever home.

We are thrilled for these two little girls, but there are still more than 117,000 children waiting in foster care for their forever family. The Foundation will not stop until they are all adopted.
