Rethinking foster care

See also

Today in the United States there are 400,540 children that are without permanent homes and families. Of these, about 115,000 are eligible for adoption. Nearly 40% of these kids will be in foster care for more than three years before they get adopted, going from family to family. But these kids are real people, not just another number. Perhaps it's time we rethink the foster care system to keep these children from being overlooked.

Trends in the foster care system have shown a huge decrease in the last ten years. So far since 2002, the number of children in foster care has dropped significantly from 523,616 to 399,546 in 2012.

Take a look at this infographic for more on the United States foster care system. Are you interested in adopting or becoming a foster parent? Let us know in the comments and don't forget to like and share with your friends.
