Unadoptable is Unacceptable

Multimedia with summary

At the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, we believe that “unadoptable” is unacceptable.Each year 23,000 children age out of the foster care system in the United States without being adopted into a forever family. To us, that is unacceptable.

I Am

Multimedia with summary

Children in foster care face stereotypes that simply aren’t true. These children are not trouble makers, too old or unable to live with a family; they are not unadoptable. Children come into care because they have been abused or neglected. Through no fault of their own, they are removed from their homes. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is committed to finding permanent, loving homes for the more than 130,000 children waiting in foster care in the U.S. and Canada.The Foundation was founded by Dave Thomas, who is also the founder of Wendy’s restaurants.

I'm Just a Kid

Multimedia with summary

Children of all ages have dreams and that doesn’t stop just because they enter the fostercare system. Hear the dreams of the children being helped by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters. 

The Foundation was founded by Dave Thomas, who is also the founder of Wendy’s restaurants. He was adopted and believed strongly in social responsibility. He often said “These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.”
