The Siouxland area has an urgent need for Native American families to foster Native American children, and Iowa KidsNet is proud to be part of the NF4NC (Native Families for Native Children) project, which is a collaborative effort between the Winnebago, Omaha, Ponca and Santee Tribes; the Iowa Department of Human Services; the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services; and private agency partners.

Over 100 Children in Pinellas and Pasco foster care wating to be adopted.

Through no fault of their own, over one hundred children landed in the foster care system. They await forever homes. They await being loved as much as they desire to be loved by a forever family. Will that forever family be yours?

Now In College, Former Foster Kids Share: Education is key.

"I struggled my first semester, and my grades reflected that. However, the endless support from the previous foster parents did ease my anxiety and made things a lot easier once I got a hold of the whole 'college thing.' ... I've always lived my life by this motto: It's better to live to a life of 'oh wells' than a life of 'what ifs.' Go to college, even if it's for a semester. Try it out, learn some new things and meet some new people. Obtaining a degree is monumental and a huge confidence and morale booster."

Art exhibit's aim [is] building families

When 27 children currently in foster care in Northwest Florida recently smiled for photographers, they weren’t just aiming for a happy memory or a pretty picture. They were hoping it would end in a forever family. Those children, ages 4 to 17, are the subjects of this year’s “Art of Adoption: The Heart Gallery of the Gulf Coast” exhibit, which opens today at the Pensacola State College Visual Arts Gallery. The children are all clients within the FamiliesFirst Network of Lakeview who are eligible for adoption.

Education: Adoption vs. Foster Care

In a 2006 paper titled “The Value of Adoption”, Mary Hansen of American University explains that the human services cost of adoption is about half the cost of long-term foster care for children whose birth parents’ rights have been terminated.

Michigan needs more foster familiesMichigan needs more foster families
Michigan needs more foster families. About 14,000 children across the state are in the foster care system at any time. Many foster with relatives, but many do not. There are challenges finding enough families to foster youngsters in need of safe, stable living arrangements. And there are particular challenges finding families to take "special needs" children - those with physical or emotional problems - and older children in their teen years. Some youngsters end up lodged in group home settings until placements can be found.

Photo Shoot Changes PerceptionsWe've all heard the foster care horror stories but rarely do we hear the success stories. The perception of most Americans is that children in foster care are juvenile delinquents with behavioral issues. Of course, I was no exception. I didn't know anything about adoption or foster care. Those were not subjects that were discussed around the dinner table. Two weeks after starting at Heart Gallery, I attended my first photo shoot and my entire perception of these children changed.

Another 500 Children Are Available for AdoptionMany of the children currently available for adoption were removed from their birth family or legal parent due to neglect, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. An adoption cannot take place unless the birth parent or legal parent's rights have been terminated by the court. The adoption process can take up to six months to complete. It includes a home study and background check. But what makes an adoption successful is a family that can make a commitment, deal with rejection, look at progress in small steps, and simply laugh.

We can all help foster childrenWe can all help foster children
On the Thanksgiving holiday, many of us will gather with friends and family to celebrate all the things for which we are grateful. But for children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted, that family bonding experience will be tough to come by - and gratitude for their station in life, tougher still. Too many of our children will not be adopted before they turn 18 and "age out" of the system. Their path is a sad one, as they go through life alone - not sharing holidays with parents, not having a father to guide them or a mother to hug and nurture them.
