The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services has launched a new campaign called “Why not me?”

“Some 4,000 abused and neglected children in Texas are awaiting adoption, almost half of them are older than 9. The older the child, the longer they wait for adoption, and each day they ask themselves, ‘Why not me? Why can’t I have a family?’

“Now DFPS is asking Texans, ‘Why not you? Why not adopt an older child?'”

You can check out more information about this campaign here, and more information about children in Foster Care around our country here, and here.
