Waiting Children

Waiting for a family is the longest wait of all.

Waiting Children

Despite the fact that we live in one of the most fortunate nations in the world, there are 102,000 children in the U.S. foster care system waiting to be adopted. Adopt America Network specializes in finding homes for the most difficult-to-place children.

For these children, every day that passes without a family of their own is an eternity – especially since they are dealing with very special needs and situations, including:

  • Victims of extreme neglect.
  • Victims of abuse – sexual, physical, emotional.
  • Mentally or medically fragile children (ranging from minor problems to terminally ill).
  • Part of a sibling group of two or more (the greater the number, the harder it is to find a permanent home).
  • Of minority or biracial heritage.
  • Older children with the associated problems of long-term care in the foster system.

Perhaps the best way to really see what our organization is all about is to “meet” the children who are available for adoption and so richly deserve a home to call their own.
