In Colorado, more than 5,000 children are in foster care and hundreds of these children are available for adoption. Last year, more than 20,000 children nationwide were emancipated from states’ care without ever having found a permanent family. Since The Adoption Exchange officially opened its doors in 1983, the non-profit organization has helped connect nearly 8000 children with loving homes and responds to approximately 20,000 adoption inquiries each year from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 64 foreign countries. A Day for Wednesday’s Child helps raise enough money to provide basic recruitment services for more than 50 children in need of loving, permanent homes each year.
