Wednesday's Child

Nearly 1,600 children in Virginia’s foster care system are waiting for a permanent, loving home. At B101.5 and NewsTalk 1230 WFVA, we want to introduce you to some of them. Each month, we will highlight a waiting child from Children’s Home Society and tell you how you can welcome that child home.

If we don’t get adopted
Since 1900, CHS has placed more than 12,500 children into permanent, loving homes. These children include infants, sibling groups, teenagers and children from fragile beginnings, such as living with violence and abuse, or born with medical problems like spina bifida, cerebral palsy, or Downs syndrome.
While many children have been placed with their “forever families,” more are waiting. Nearly 1,600 children in Virginia’s foster care system are longing for a place to call home. Statistics suggest a bleak future for those who don’t get adopted:
  • 1 in 4 will end up in jail within two years of leaving foster care
  • More than 1 in five will be homeless after turning 18
  • Fewer than 1 in 6 will earn a high school degree
Who are these children? Their stories are varied – a 15-year-old victim of sexual abuse, a baby abandoned at the hospital when born with medical disabilities, the 9-and 11-year-old siblings whose greatest fear, after enduring neglect, is that they might be separated from each other.
At CHS, we are dedicated to finding just the right family for each of these children. If you are ready to explore the joys of adoption or want to learn more about our services, visit www.chsva.org or contact the office nearest you.
