Adoption from Foster Care

Adoption From Foster Care Main Image
There are 123,000 children in the US foster care system awaiting adoption, but 15-to -18-year-olds represented only 5% of all children adopted in 2017.

This campaign spotlights the need to find permanent families for teens, who have lower overall adoption rates and wait longer to be adopted than younger children. The newest PSAs highlight this need by reminding parents that there are plenty of heartwarming “firsts” to share with a teen. Recruit loving families for teens by reassuring prospective parents that even if they are not “perfect,” they can provide the support and commitment that teens in foster care need and deserve.
