A Full House

The Whittmore’s knew they had more love to give and opened their hearts and home to foster care adoption.

The family added four more girls to the family when they adopted Autumn, Madison, Tayleigh and Devyn. The girls now have two more sisters Tiffany and Taylor, who are the Whittmore’s biological children.

The family says they felt called to foster care adoption and feel blessed to be able to provide a safe, loving home for all of their daughters.

There are more than 20,000 children in the United States and Canada who age out of care each year. These children are at higher risk for homelessness, incarceration, early pregnancy, drug abuse and other negative outcomes.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption provides funds to adoption agencies throughout the U.S. and Canada through its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids. These funds also agencies to hire specially-trained adoption recruiters who work to find adoptive families for children most at risk of aging out of care. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption believes every child deserves a family and a support system to help them achieve their goals.


Foster care adoption isn’t for everyone, but supporting the mission of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is open to all. Consider supporting our mission to dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care. Visit davethomasfoundation.org/donate and know that more than 90 percent of every dollar goes towards our mission.
