Foster Care and Adoption Lead to Family Restoration

May is National Foster Care Awareness Month, and many organizations are taking the opportunity to make a difference for a child with foster care and adoption toward family restoration.

“Virginia Adopts: Campaign for 1,000,” is an initiative to match more than 1,000 children in foster care in Virginia with 1,000 adoptive families in an event that will be held at the Executive Mansion in Richmond, Virginia.  Registration for the kick-off event at noon this Friday, May 17 can be found here.  You can find out more about the Virginia Adopts Campaign on Facebook  and on Twitter, or on YouTube.  Learn more about the children in foster care in Virginia who are looking for a loving family and the adoption process at the Virginia Adopts website. One person can change the life of a child in foster care.

Families make such a tremendous difference in the lives of children who find themselves in foster care due to abuse or neglect.  One family in Virginia is making a difference in the lives of eleven children by adopting them from state foster care and raising them in a Christian family.  See about Team Steele from their 700 Club appearance here.
Currently more than 380,000 children wait in foster care for a family.  See more about foster care at http://www.fostercaremonth.org/.  Every child deserves the security and love that a family provides. Children need family restoration.
