WWK Recruiter ‘Willing to Climb the Fence’ to Find Children Forever Families

The Foundation’s Wendy’s Wonderful Kids (WWK) recruiters work with children who have previously been thought of as “hard to place:” Children who are older, part of sibling groups, or have emotional or developmental challenges. But these labels do not stop our recruiters from finding families. Not even a defiant foster parent will deter them. When a WWK recruiter first started searching for a family for a sibling group of four, the children were between the ages of 4 and 11. She started by examining the children’s files and searching for past connections that could lead to a permanent family. But meeting and developing relationships with the children – an integral part of the WWK child-focused recruitment model – was difficult. The foster parent would not return calls and tried to deny meetings. But it didn’t stop the recruiter from getting creative. She got to know the children the only way she could – by visiting them at school. The recruiter’s hard work led her to a young couple open to adopting a large sibling group. Bess was a therapist who worked with children, and Guster had a big heart and an adventurous spirit. Throughout the process, she not only worked with the children, but also with the parents by coming to all of their adoption meetings, and making sure they received answers to all of their questions. On the day the couple went to meet James, Janelle, Ella and Maria, they arrived at the foster home to be greeted by the recruiter and a 10-foot tall fence. They brought along games to play with the children and food and... read more

Above All, Love & Persistence Reunite a Family

In a true testament of the importance of the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids model, is the story of 17-year-old Beth Ann. Separated from her siblings after she was placed into foster care in 2006, she moved around several times before she found her family and was reunited with her siblings and extended family. Beth Ann entered foster care after her mother was jailed for drug use. She became a big sister to two siblings who were born in prison. Her mother gave custody of her siblings to her aunt, but refused to do the same for Beth Ann. She spent time in group homes, institutions and foster homes, and never felt like she fit in. Beth Ann finally received some consistency in her life when she became a part of a therapeutic foster family in 2010, and later that year that she was referred to a Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter. A bond formed quickly between Beth Ann and the recruiter, and it wasn’t long before she was comfortable talking about her feelings and the prospect of adoption. After several discussions with her foster family about the importance of permanency in Beth Ann’s life, they agreed adoption was best for the entire family. During the adoption process, Beth Ann had some confrontations with kids at school and self-esteem issues which affected her relationship with her foster family and eventually disrupted the adoption. She once again found herself moving from one foster home to another and decided she wanted nothing to do with adoption. But the recruiter didn’t give up and continued to be a consistent presence in her life. The two talked... read more

Three Days with My Newborn Son

I stroked his soft cheek. His blue eyes gazed into mine as I touched his soft hair. I counted his toes and fingers and caressed his plump little belly. My baby boy had grown perfectly inside of me for nine months, and now I could see and touch him. Tucking his thumb under his fingers, he made a little fist that he waved at me, his 15-year-old mom. I leaned back, closed my eyes, and listened to every breath he took. I had fallen in love with him during my pregnancy. At first I wanted to keep him and raise him. He could come to school with me and attend the daycare for teenaged mothers. I bought him clothes and a crib. But one day in math class I thought about everything I wanted to give him—but couldn’t. At that moment, I knew I loved him enough to give him to a family who could give him what he needed: a father who was active and present in his life, a mother who was not a child, financial security, and more. Part of my heart died. It had to die, so he could live the life I wanted him to have. I chose his family with great care, deciding on one in Iowa. The man was a farmer and the mother a nurse. Their arms were empty because of infertility. Time stood still for three days after his birth. I stayed awake, not wanting to miss a moment. I changed his diapers, fed him bottles, and took Polaroid pictures. Late into the night, I read Scripture to him and talked as he lay in my arms gazing... read more
