The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has one mission: To dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care. The Foundation’s signature program is the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids (WWK) program.Through WWK, the Foundation furnishes grants to private and public adoption agencies. The agencies hire specially-trained adoption recruiters whose sole mission is to find forever families for the children who have been in foster care the longest. The recruiters do this by usingthe Foundation’s child-focused recruitment model. This model relies on getting to know each individual child, their needs and their connections.

Our American Network, a digital storytelling platform, chose to feature one of our WWK recruiter and a family she matched. We are grateful for this partnership to raise awareness for foster care adoption and we hope you’ll listen.
