Adoption

In partnership with the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) and Fox 5 TV Atlanta, Wednesday’s Child is a successful program designed to increase the number of adoptions of children in Georgia’s foster care system. The children featured on Wednesday’s Child are those in the most urgent need of a home. Many of these children are over the age of eight and have been in foster care for some time and desperately need a permanent place to call home.

He looks forward to joining JROTC at school, where he performs well and enjoys learning about math. Ricky likes to watch movies like ‘Furious 7‘ and television, in general. He also likes play board games like ‘Monopoly’ and ‘Life’, and do outdoor activities like climb trees, cut grass, and play football and basketball. Ricky also likes to watch football and basketball (the Georgia Bulldogs are his favorite team), travel (like a great trip to Canada), try new activities, do things with his hands, and eat foods like carrots, grapefruit, anything with chocolate, hot Cheetos, and Cookies & Cream ice cream. Ricky needs a loving adoptive family who will provide him with the support, structure, encouragement, consistent supervision, goals, attention and nurturing environment he needs to continue to thrive. His family will also need to support his need for ongoing therapy.
