It all started with the “most epic and memorable game of UNO every played.” That’s when Jacquelynn and Kevin Patterson knew they had met their daughter, Haylee. And Haylee knew she had met her parents.
Haylee entered foster care when she was 11. She lived in eight different houses in two years. That’s when she met the Pattersons and knew immediately they were meant to be her family. Join the Circle of Support for youth like Haylee. Commit to a monthly gift, of any size, that will ensure more children are adopted into supportive, safe and loving homes.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is proud to work with the Adoption Exchange Association on I-CARE, the Initiative to Create Adoption Ready Employees. Thanks to The Chronicle of Social Change for shedding light on this exciting and critical program.
