RICHMOND, Va. -- As the pandemic continues to change our world, the needs of children looking for a permanent loving home are the same. For 12-year-old Zaniyah, what she wants in a family is pretty straightforward.

"Someone to love you and to care about you and to hold you tight and someone to hug you and give you kisses," she said.

Zaniyak says her goals have always been the same.

"To find a family, to be loved and to be treated well," she said.

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.
