Did you know that more than 23,000 children will age out of the US foster care system every year?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you also know that there is a less than a 3% chance for these young adults to earn a college degree, and 7 out of 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 21?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While you may have not been aware of these stats, the teens in the foster care system are fully aware of their trajectory. And although they may have a tough exterior, they truly long to be in a safe and loving family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say, there is an overwhelming need for families willing to provide a safe, loving home for the teens in our foster care system. Let's change the trajectory!

Couples often start the adoption process with the hopes and expectations of finding “the” child to fit their family. Along the way, there may be discouragement when “the” child does not seem to come along. The truth is, every child awaiting adoption comes with his/her own trauma, which is anything but perfect. In fact, a child can incur trauma, even prior to being born.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aside from any of this, we must remember that we ourselves are far from perfect. We’re human. Thus the goal is not to match perfect children with families; rather, our mission is to find the families that will best love, embrace, and meet the needs of hurting children, imperfections and all!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
