National Adoption Day

As advocates for life, we should not limit our focus to the rights of the unborn. Several children are neglected by their parents and end up in foster care. Those children may stay in foster care for years and some never find a family and when they turn 18 they are all alone. The best environment for a child is in a good loving family - a family with a mother and father who love them. Research has continuously come out to confirm this well known fact. Many believe that adoption is a very expensive and difficult process and so they never seriously consider adoption. While there may be some obsticles, nothing worth doing or receiving comes without some challenges. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a public charity that my employer, Wendy's/Arby's Group, fully supports. The Dave Thomas Foundation is a public charity dedicated to dramatically increasing the number of adoptions of children waiting in foster care. Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's, himself was adopted and he was a champion for the cause for adoption his entire life. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a more afordable option than many other adoption options. If you'd like more information, please visit their website below. God bless!
