For the past two years, the non-profit group, Together We Rise has been photographing moments of adoption. Adoption offers a possibility of stability and the potential to have a loving, joyful family life. While reinforcing this idea, the organization strives to improve the foster care experience for the 430,000 children who are currently in it. They work with people, businesses, and community partners to deliver resources such as new bicycles, educational programs, college scholarships, and even cases that foster youngsters can use to pack and carry their stuff. They believe that children in foster care need to be treated with decency, respect, and assistance, reports Bored Panda

For almost two years, they have been posting heartwarming images of foster kids on the day they were adopted into their "forever families". The majority of their pictures show the youngsters standing next to placards indicating how long they were in foster care before being adopted. The joy on the faces of these children is unmatched as they stand beside the new family that is giving them another chance at a stable and secure life. The Executive Director of Together We Rise, Gianna Dahlia, told The Huffington Post, "With so much negative news surrounding foster care we just want to highlight the positive with amazing adoptions that are happening every day."
