For children in the foster care system waiting for adoptive families, it truly is “A Race For Adoption”.   Younger children long for mothers and/or fathers to love them, comfort them and care for them so they may experience happiness in their childhoods.  Older children hope to find forever families before they emancipate from foster care so they will have a family to identify with and a family to help prepare and support them as they transition into adulthood. Thousands of children in our country lose this race each year and are never adopted prior to their emancipation. 

We hope to do our part to help waiting children and meet obligations in our adoption recruitment plan by drawing attention to this need and recruiting for potential adoptive families for Ohio’s Waiting Children.
