"I love it; they're the best dads you could ever have

- says Jesse about being adopted

We believe that every child is adoptable & deserves a loving permanent family.

Children Awaiting Parents, Inc. is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to finding adoptive families for those children in foster care who wait the longest. Children Awaiting Parents works on behalf of these children, typically teenagers, and sibling groups who wish to stay together and/or those children with special needs.

CAP has helped bring together more than 6,000 children and families over the last 44 years.
