Moving Teens From Foster Care To Permanent Homes
In any year, the numbers of children who go into foster care exceed half a million across the country. Many of them go back to their families, but some can't go back. Ever.
Rather than see them bounce from foster home to foster home, the organization AdoptUSKids advocates for parents to adopt the teens who would otherwise be in foster care until they reach adulthood.
Bob Herne is the national project director for AdoptUSKids; he visits to detail the workings of the program and give some numbers on how many adoptions are needed. And a woman named Monique tells her story of adopting teen girls.
