15 Heartwarming Photos of Kids Who Were Finally Adopted From Foster Care

I think I just shed a little tear!

A A A

Non-profit organization Together We Rise says that in the United States, around 1,200 kids enter foster care every day.

This surprisingly high statistic is, of course, heartbreaking especially considering the fact that living in foster care is sometimes viewed in negative light by some people. On top of that, the wait until a child finally gets adopted can be quite agonizing.

This is where groups like TWR can be extremely helpful.

About 2 years ago, the organization thought it would be a good idea to post pictures of newly adopted kids on their official Facebook and Instagram accounts. The result of it was overwhelming to say the least.

In an interview with BoredPanda, TWR said:

“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.”

Recognizing the potentials of what TWR is doing, a lot of people pitched in to help the organization.

TWR added:

“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 inquires we posted an application for any interested photographers and in the first day we had over 5,000 professionals sign up. “

Here are some of the heartwarming photos shared online by TWR:
