After More than Three Years in Foster Care, Little Boy Finally Has Forever Family

Mar 15, 2018 11:00 AM ET


Did you know that the average length of time that a child is in foster care before being adopted is about three years? Most children move house-to-house during that time and often fall behind in their school work, aren’t able to make lasting friendships and find it difficult to trust.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption works hard to find forever families for children waiting in foster care because we believe that every child deserves a safe, loving and permanent home.

We are so happy for little Andrew, who spent more than 1,000 days in foster care. He was adopted by the Michaud family and he will forever know the love of a supportive family. He even got a new brother!

There are more than 117,000 children like Andrew waiting to be adopted. Help us find their forever family. Visit
