Adoptions Together prevents childhoods in foster care. As a child and family health and welfare organization with a specific focus on building healthy, lifelong connections between children and families, Adoptions Together offers placement services open to all families and children, of all ages, abilities and expertise, to respond to the unique needs of children and families touched by adoption and/or foster care. Adoptions Together’s work has touched the lives of more than 3,500 children and thousands of families. Starting in 2014, Adoptions Together is on a strategic trajectory to positively impact the lives of 24,000 individuals, ensuring 6,000 children have secure, lifelong connections to caring, committed adults by the close of 2020, a goal that doubles their impact since their founding in 1990. Last year, Kevin had his first birthday party and he's been waiting 14 years to wear a silly party hat and blow out his candles. A partnership with a metropolitan social service agency is helping Kevin, and his peers, who have spent their childhood in foster care find a lifelong connection they can call their own before they leave foster care alone and as young adults with no connections. Through an extensive investigation process, Kevin and Adoptions Together found great aunts, uncles, and a grandfather who want to meet and get to know Kevin. Now six months later, Kevin is beginning to understand what it means to be in a family and what it means to be the honored "Birthday Boy". Visit Adoptions Together's website.
