According to a study done by Together, We Rise, in the United States, 1,200 kids enter foster care, which is a life filled with uncertainty and humiliation, every single day. To fight this, Together We Rise brings volunteers together in helping children in foster care, and encourages families to adopt. About two years ago, TWR started posting pictures of kids who were recently adopted on Facebook and Instagram, and the response was incredible.
Bored Panda that “We’ve had thousands of people reach out to us and either say they are considering being a foster parent or adopting because of the photos. Every day we have people reaching out to us wanting to learn more about the adoption process or what they can do to help. We even inspired thousands of professional photographers who wanted to donate their services to families adopting. With an overwhelming amount of inquiries, we posted an application for any interested photographers and in the first day we had over 5000 professionals sign up.”
Scroll down below and just see all the happy, glowing faces of these children, or if you have a happy family photo with your adopted family, feel free to share the love with us…
