Foster Friends will provide breakfast, entertainment, and gifts to help make National Adoption Day special for families who are adopting children from foster care. National Adoption Day is a collective effort to raise awareness of children in foster care who are waiting for permanent adoptive families. Consider these statistics:
More than 100,000 children in foster care are waiting for an adoptive family.
The average child in foster care waits nearly three years to be adopted.
More than 23,000 children age out of foster care each year with no permanent adoptive home to return to.
