Ruth Amerson is an incredible woman who founded ANOTHER CHOICE FOR BLACK CHILDREN, INC. It is an adoption agency that searches for adoptive home for particularly “hard-to-match” children.

After working as a social worker and seeing that there are children who need loving homes, Ruth made the choice to devote her life to helping children find families. Ruth’s agency has placed 1,000 children to date with adoptive and foster parents. The Meredith Vieira Show contacted Ruth after seeing a Facebook post by an adoptive parent who praised the work she does.

Currently, Ruth is working to create an emergency shelter for runaway children.
