National Foster Care Month

The following is a guest post from Adopt Us Kids

“Did you know it would take less than 1% of the U.S. population to provide a family for every child in foster care? 

May is National Foster Care Month and there has never been a greater need to bring attention to children waiting for forever homes.  More than 463,000 children are currently in foster care and 123,000 children are waiting to be adopted.

Children in foster care are loving children.  They are children like Shaquane and Edlina and Albert.  Every child deserves to have a home with caring and supportive parents.

Help us spread the message this month to reach all Americans and teach them about the love and joy that foster care adoption can bring to your life.

Visit to learn more about fostering and adopting. You can also join our online communities on Facebook and Twitter. “

Please join me and others on Twitter for a one hour chat on Thursday, May 27th at 2pm Eastern.  Use the tag #AdoptUsKids to learn more about National Foster Care Month and answer any questions you may have.
