Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption: Finding Forever Families for Children in Foster Care

Jul 18, 2016 10:00 AM ET

Scott came into the foster care system when he was six years old and remained in foster care for 10 years. During that time he had seven placements and fell behind in school. His Wendy's Wonderful Kids recruiter saw his potential and his special story and knew she could find the right family. Through diligent research, she was able to find Scott's older sister who was living with her foster family as an adult. After approaching this family, they were more than happy to meet Scott and realized that he was the missing piece to make their family complete. Not only did they adopt Scott, but they also adopted his sister.
