Wendy’s Wonderful Kids’ Child-Focused Recruitment Adoption Model: Making a Difference for Thousands of Children


Did you know that 50,516 children were adopted from foster care in 2011? November is National Adoption Month, a time to recognize the efforts of social workers, judges, agency administrators, philanthropists, therapists, guardians ad litem, court appointed special advocates, policymakers, and a multitude of other dedicated individuals whose combined efforts helped achieve forever families for children. For the adoptive parents and their children, it’s a time to celebrate the commitments they have made to each other. But it’s also a time to ask how we can ensure that children who remain in foster care, and for whom returning to their families of origin is not safe or possible, can also join adoptive families someday soon. At the end of 2011, 104,236 children were officially classified as waiting for adoption.1
