Review for National Council for Adoption, Alexandria, VA, USA
My family adopted teenagers from foster care, which has been a challenging journey. NCFA's articles and help with post-adoption issues dealing with loss and trauma have really helped our family provide a safe and structured home to these girls. A few years ago I went to an NCFA event in DC called Foster the City that introduced our local community to the idea of fostering, mentoring, or adopting kids in foster care. It was a great event -- and a much-needed one. There are about 100,000 children in foster care who are waiting for adoptive families, so I'm glad to know that NCFA is doing outreach to prospective parents and is helping to support those parents throughout the process. Very worthy work. It takes a village.
