Adoption

“Every child deserves a home and love. Period.”
— Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s and advocate for adoption

Adoption

Thousands of Arizona children in foster care are waiting to be adopted by a loving forever family. The Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK) adoption program guides families on the path from foster care to adoption.

A sense of permanency – knowing there are people who will always love you – is critical to a child’s development. There are sometimes potholes on path to permanency, however. There is always the possibility a child in foster care may return to the biological parents.

But, AASK’s compassionate family support specialists provide adoptive families with on-going support from the time of inquiry until the child is settled in your home, so that you’re never left to navigate questions and challenges alone.

Wednesday's Child

AASK leads the effort in finding family relationships for children through on-going community outreach, including production of the weekly Wednesday’s Child, featuring children and youth in foster care who need adoptive homes. The stories of children needed forever families are broadcast on television station KPNX (Channel 12) and published in The Arizona Republic.
