Video: I’m Just a Kid

A video created by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Denalee Chapman May 15, 2015

The kids featured in this video are representative of all children–those living with those families, and those in foster care. They all have dreams and ambitions. They all have hopes. These kids just need to be given the chance to meet their goals, to reach their dreams.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption believes there is a family for each child.  And they know that each child deserves a loving, protective, forever family.  As we watch and listen to this small sampling of foster children, if our hearts are touched, we should act on those feelings.  We should step forward to provide what we can for these innocent children.
