By the age of 13, Cody had spent 3,372 days in foster care and been placed in eight different foster homes. That’s more than nine years being moved house to hose, not feeling settled and wishing for consistency. It’s hard to not give up hope in a case like this, but EVERYTHING changed for Cody on April 25 when he was adopted!

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s mission is to dramatically increase adoptions from foster care and we believe no child should languish in the system. We are so thankful for the work of our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter in Toledo, Ohio who found Cody his forever family. Welcome Home Cody! 

Wendy’s Wonderful Kids is the signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Through WWK, we are able to provide grants to adoption agencies who hire recruiters, specially-trained by the Foundation. Since 2004, more than 6,200 children have been adopted through the program. 

As you head into this holiday weekend to spend time with family, please remember there are more than 110,000 children in the US foster care system waiting to have a family celebration of their own. #itsworthit
