These kids deserve all the love and happiness in the world!
Every child deserves a loving home. Adopting foster kids is a beautiful way to expand your family. So many children in the system are looking for their forever homes and all of them deserve to be taken care of in the best way possible. For the past few years, Together We Rise has been sharing heartwarming photos of foster kids on the day they were adopted. The non-profit organization collaborates with individuals, companies, and community partners to bring resources to foster youth and use service-learning activities to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system. They also offer resources like school supplies, bicycles, educational programs, and even college scholarships to foster children.
According to its official website, the non-profit "is comprised of humanitarians, advocates, artists, and visionaries who are committed to changing the world for the better. Our team of passionate volunteers, interns, and staff continue to transform the lives of children in foster care." They state that "the foster care system can be a confusing and sometimes disheartening place, but through our fundraising and network of passionate volunteers, we strive to give children in foster care a brighter future, a sense of normalcy and belonging. We have multiple programs and volunteer opportunities so each individual or group can select the right fit for them."
"With so much negative news surrounding foster care we just want highlight the positive with amazing adoptions that are happening every day," TWR Executive Director, Gianna Dahlia, told The Huffington Post. "There are many negative stereotypes surrounding kids in foster care, but they are just children who want loving families -- and there are families out there fighting for them," she added. "We just want to inspire those families either going the process or considering the adoption process that it can be done and it is worth it."
