Jenny Finds a Family After All

October 5, 2021
OHIO: Jenny* has been in foster care for years. She has spent birthdays and holidays not knowing her biological family is or where they might be located. 

When an adoption recruiter from the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® (WWK) program received Jenny’s case, she quickly began to build out a family tree for Jenny using our Family Connections technology. As she researched the names that popped up, her family recruiter soon realized that Jenny is related to another child on her caseload—living in the same county!

No one in the county agency had previously realized these two children were related.

The WWK recruiter is now collaborating with the county to connect Jenny with her cousin and continues to work toward finding Jenny a permanent home. Our smart technology tools paired with an amazing WWK recruiter, Jenny no longer has to wonder who her family is and where she came from.

These connections matter. Want to help more children like Jenny? You can help today by donating HERE.
