Adoption Creates Forever Families

YOU are the best thing that could happen to a child awaiting adoption



We’re delighted you’re considering opening your heart and home to an older child in need. On the following pages, you’ll not only see compelling photographs of beautiful children available for adoption, you’ll get a glimpse of their unique personalities as well. Some of the kids like sports; some like art; some are outgoing; some are shy. But ALL of the children need a safe, nurturing Forever Home where they are given the opportunity to be themselves and receive unconditional love and support. For many reasons – including neglect, abuse and abandonment – these kids have found themselves in the foster care system. Adopting a foster child is not cause for concern—like all kids, these children long for a normal life. They need love. They need families. They need YOU.

All for the children,

Peg Harriott, President & CEO Child Saving Institute
