I have a big heart when it comes to foster care and programs that support getting kids into their forever family. Being a foster child myself who aged out of the system as a child, all I had wanted was a family who truly loved me. While I never found that myself, there are children right in this country who are finding loving homes through foster care thanks to programs like the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
We visited Wendy’s® this week for a lunch date and to share the Dave Thomas Foundation For Adoption program who shares cute and heartwarming stories from kids who found their forever family. Awareness is a great way to help foster children because many times people may think and not act. Know the support and help available is important and very beneficial to those who would love to change a life and make the world a better place.
My husband and I don’t get away very often so it’s nice to spend time together and lunch is a great moment to do that while the kids are at school. While enjoying my tasty Wendy’s salad, my husband and I talked about my childhood and about the new Wendy’s® cups. Right now at Wendy’s® when you buy a drink you will see a number of different cups with drawings. Each cup tells the story of a child’s adoption and the story of a child’s “first family moment”. The four separate drawings bring to life the power of foster care adoption through a child’s eyes, highlighting everyday family moments that most of us take for granted, such as a day at the beach. The children’s stories come to life when customers visit www.wendys.com/adoption, where they will become a part of the “family first” moment by listening to and watching an animated illustration. Wendy’s is showcasing the artwork of four children who have been adopted through the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program but they’ve helped hundreds of thousands of children become adopted through foster care.
You can also support through the Wendy’s adoption page. What are your favorite family moments?
