The power of adoption in Georgia

On Behalf of | Jul 28, 2016 | Adoption |

Children who do not have a family to call their own can begin a new life after being adopted. One man, a Wendy’s franchise owner, has decided to do what he can to inspire others to get involved in adoption, and he is biking four thousand miles across the United States to call attention to process. Those interested in adopting a child in Georgia can contact family law professionals for information and assistance.

There are more than one hundred thousand children currently in the foster care system. Far too many of this children will age out of the system and never know what it is like to have a loving and caring family. The founder of Wendy’s, Dave Thomas, was an adopted child and knew just how powerful adoption can be. His foundation has helped raise awareness and money for children up for adoption.

Thomas’ story has now touched the life of this franchise owner, who is hoping to raise one million dollars for this adoption foundation. He only hopes that through his bike ride others will be encouraged and motivated to learn more and even begin the process of adopting a child. One day, parents, grandparents and siblings that love them may surround those children that do not have a family.

Adoption has the power to impact hundreds of thousands of lives, especially those without families to call their own. Families looking into adopting a child have a variety of resources available to them. Those in family law have experience handling adoption cases in Georgia and can guide these families through the process.
