Two Sites that are Used By Child Protective Services to Adopt Out Foster Children

March 21, 2010 Leave a comment

These are just two of the sites that are used to buy children under the Title IV-E Funding.
This is their front page

Wednesday’s Child, sponsored by the Freddie Mac Foundation, is a weekly television feature about adoption that helps find permanent, loving, adoptive families for children in foster care. On the website one can view photolistings of waiting children from 5 metropolitan areas which host local Wednesday’s Child weekly features: Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.

To watch online rebroadcasts select the city’s main page and click on the link to the news station.

To read true life adoption accounts in our “Success Stories” area, see photos of families who found their children through Wednesday’s Child, learn more about the Freddie Mac Foundation, or discover which newscast will show a local Wednesday’s Child feature in your area.

Children are added each week, so please visit often!

Families already approved to adopt as well as families new to adoption can express interest in a particular child or receive an information packet for families (includes a list of adoption agencies in your local state) by filling out the Interest Form.

This is the front page of USKids another site that Title IV-E Funding uses to sell foster children to adoptive parents.
