“An older child wants to be adopted and feel loved just as much as a little one,” says Cheyenne Dino.

Placed into foster care just after her 10th birthday, when the subject of adoption came up, Cheyenne was hesitant. She wasn’t sure adoption was for her.  But through the coaxing of her sister, Cheyenne realized that she really did want a forever home. “Home is where you feel loved,” she said.

Cheyenne suggests to teens in foster care that adoption might be just the right thing. And she sends out a call to adults everywhere – teens need love and they need families. So consider adopting an older child through foster care.
