You can help hundreds of children currently in the Utah foster care system realize their dreams of belonging to a loving family. It is a right no one should be denied, much less a child. All money raised goes directly to program services. 96 cents of every dollar goes to recruiting homes for the more than 150 children waiting in Utah's Foster Care system.

A Day for Wednesday's Child is also about spreading adoption awareness throughout the state. All children featured on A Day for Wednesday's Child are children who are currently in Utah's Foster Care system.

Please help us change the life of a waiting child by making a tax deductible contribution to A Day for Wednesday's Child.
