Today on #GivingTuesday, we are giving thanks for everyone who has supported and will continue to support the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Every gift makes a difference and moves us one step closer to our goal to find loving families for children waiting in foster care. We can and will accomplish this together.
Today, thanks to the philanthropic support of our donors, children are being helped with their schoolwork, tucked in and told they are loved. But our mission is far from complete. There are thousands more children with futures full of possibilities. We are grateful that 1,016 loyal friends, families, corporations and community partners have already committed their support this year so that the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption can continue to make life-changing moments possible for deserving children!
Our generous supporters make it possible for the Foundation to award grants to public and private adoption agencies to employ 234 Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters. Their responsibility is to find safe, loving and permanent homes for children who have been in foster care the longest. This is not a faceless, insurmountable challenge! We can and will accomplish this together. Support foster care adoption with your gift today.

This annual, one-day event has made the dreams of thousands of children come true by working with policymakers, practitioners and advocates to finalize adoptions and create and celebrate adoptive families.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, November 7, 2016/3BL Media/ - All children deserve loving, permanent homes. That is the motivation behind the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s celebration of National Adoption Month -- a nationwide campaign that focuses on foster care adoption.
There are 107,000 children in the U.S. foster care system available for adoption. These children entered foster care through no fault of their own, as victims of child abuse, neglect or abandonment and their parents’ legal rights have been terminated.
