RICHMOND, Va. -- Imagine growing up without a family to serve as a support system. That's what hundreds of kids in our area are doing right now.

Children like 12-year-old Blake, who said he wanted a family and did not care what kind.

Blake is active, loves to be outside, and loves sports -- especially the Dallas Cowboys.

He has a great sense of humor and loves having other kids around.

His teachers called Blake a leader in class.

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts – A Deborah J Johnston Charity, celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids or sibling who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other almost 700 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent(s)click here.
