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.
