Link: No age limit on love

This is an article recently featured in the Washington Post. Being the Outreach Coordinator for Project Wait No Longer, I have the opportunity to speak to many families about Older Child Adoption. Majority of the families that walk through our doors state that they wish to adopt a child 10 years old or younger. However, the statistics show that children 10 and younger are the most likely to be adopted whereas children 10 and older are the least likely to be adopted. I think awareness is vital in encouraging families to be more open on the age range of a child when considering adoption from foster care. Please take a look at the article and let us know your thoughts. If you are interested in adopting a child or sibling group from the US Foster Care System please email me at samin@barkerfoundation.org
