Aiden was just 6-years old and had already been in six different foster homes. That’s when he met a counselor named Craig. Craig could see that Aiden was lacking the love and attention that he needed to thrive. He knew that he and his husband Edward could provide that safe, supportive and loving home. This past April, the family celebrated the one year anniversary of Aiden’s adoption.

In the United States alone, there are 117,000 children like Aiden waiting in foster care to be adopted. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has one mission: to dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care. Our adoption recruiters work for agencies across the country, searching for the right family for the children who need them the most.
