There's Enough Love In America
Our Foster Family Story
Our family has two precious children, Susannah and John, who we adopted as infants. They are now both young adults, but were in foster care for the first four months of their lives. We’re so grateful for the care they received before we brought them into our home!

Why did we adopt? It’s simple, we had one biological child, but felt we had the capacity to love and provide for more children even if they weren’t our biological children. There’s a great need for loving families for children in foster care, and if you love and want children, adoption is a worthwhile option to consider. We found adoption to be an excellent investment of our time and resources. Perhaps one family’s mission is to foster, and another’s is to foster to adopt, but we were blessed to experience both.

Years after we adopted we decided to become foster parents. After thorough training from our local agency, we felt prepared and excited for the journey ahead. For the next five years, children from the ages of three to eighteen came into our home for various periods of time, sometimes a month, and sometimes several years. At any one time, we were fostering up to four children. Needless to say, our house was bright and bustling with the sounds of happy children! Read more >>

Families For All

About Us

Families For All is a program of National Council For Adoption designed to inspire Americans to adopt, foster, or mentor a child in foster care. In every state including the District of Columbia, there are abused and neglected children who are in foster care through no fault of their own. Their dream is a loving, permanent family and our goal is to help them.

The Need

America’s child welfare system is broken. Of the estimated 400,540 children in foster care, about 104,230 of them are waiting to be adopted. And of those children who are waiting to be adopted, the average length of stay is two years and three months.
