You don't have to be perfect to be the perfect parent

PhotobombWe are so excited to be working with The Ad Council, Adopt US Kids, and a team of fabulous bloggers to promote adoption from foster care in the United States.

Nearly 102,000 children (under 18 years of age) are available for adoption from the foster care system in the United States; more than 30 percent (31,000) are between the ages of 11 and 17, according to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis Report System (AFCARS 2012).

Check out these lovely posts from our bloggers who themselves have experienced adoption and foster care personally:
