Video: I Am

A video created by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Denalee Chapman May 19, 2015

Dispelling myths about children in foster care, this short video created by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption gives us insight into exactly who children in foster care are. They are just like other children–fun, innocent, lovable, mischievous, intelligent, and wanting love. Children in foster care, through no fault of their own, find themselves in need of adults who love them and will protect them.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption invites all of us to be educated about children in foster care, to provide for them by being foster parents, mentors, or by donating funds to help them find homes. Adopting through foster care is less expensive than adopting in other ways.  And foster care adoption gives life to innocent children who are waiting.
