This time I'm not talking about my own. I'm talking about kids that need homes. It's the time of the month where I post children to email lists that are waiting to be adopted. You've heard me blog about it before.
And this month, in particular, there are a whole bunch of teenage boys. Lots of them. Fifteen, sixteen seventeen year olds who have had long hard lives in the system. Some have been in foster care most of their lives.... since they were in preschool. And the chances of them being adopted are so few. Each time I find one family who will take a teenager I am thrilled. But this month I have 33 teenagers to recruit for. One family is a needle in a haystack. 33 Families. Impossible.
But for me a kid like this is nearly irresistible. Look at him!
Very discouraging to think of where they all will be in 1-5 years from now.
