I heard there is a large number of children in foster care from Idaho. Why are there only a small number of children on your website? Are there other youth available for adoption?
Not every child in foster care will need an adoptive family. Most children in foster care are eventually reunited with their parents or other biological family members. Though there are a large number of children in foster care in Idaho, most of these children already have a permanency plan in place. Some children who cannot reunify with family may end up being adopted by the foster family who are their current caregivers. Children who may not have other family members or other supports in place who can become a permanent option for them, often end up benefiting from the efforts of the Idaho Wednesday’s Child Program to help them find their Forever Family.
