Since this time last year, 217 children have been adopted through WACAP. 217 children who once lived in an orphanage or foster care. 217 children who range in age from infants to teenagers, many with special medical or developmental needs. 217 children who now have a family who can provide the love and support they need to thrive.
We know that it truly takes a village–we could not have accomplished this work on our own. WACAP would like to send a heartfelt thank you to those who have joined us in our work this past year.
The RealNetworks Foundation, the TJX Foundation, the Tulalip Tribes Charitable Fund and the Union Pacific Foundation provided grants that help fund our US Kids program, which finds families for children in foster care.
The Northwest Children’s Fund and the June and Julian Foss Foundation awarded grants for WACAP’s A Family for Me program, our multimedia-based, collaborative initiative to find families for children who are waiting for adoption in Washington’s Puget Sound region. King5 Television and Yuen Lui Portrait Studios have been integral parts of this program’s success.
Wizards of the Coast and Sun Travel sponsored this year’s Family Fun Weekend.
We also recognize the many generous individuals who have donated and attended our events.
A special thank you goes out to our volunteers, who selflessly give their time and talent to help us do what we do.
WACAP is proud to be part of a community that recognizes and celebrates the importance of family.
