Meet Cynthia: This Week's Wednesday's Child

This is Cynthia (11/2000). A beautiful young teenager who likes to play sports, do volunteer work and hang out with her many friends. She makes A's and B's in all advanced classes and hopes to become a child psychologist one day. On top of that she has a part time job at a local grocery store. Cynthia is a Christian and says that church is very important to her. She's a typical teen who is usually cheerful but sometimes moody. She would love to have a pet fish and her own room, but most of all Cynthia craves stability. She wants a forever home where she feels loved by her parents and her extended family. Cynthia would like her adoptive family to be easy going, active, and who will let her spend time with her friends, and if there were no younger kids in the home, she could get more of the nurturing and encouragement she needs. She says that an adoptive family can count on her to be sweet, persistent, and funny. Cynthia is a lovely young girl who has enormous potential. Please consider making her a permanent part of your family! For more information on foster care adoption, in Kentucky, call 1-800-928-4303 or in Indiana, 1-888-25-ADOPT.


Thanks to everyone for making this year's Adopt-a-thon a HUGE success!

Shining Star Gallery

Our biannual Shining Star Gallery is a traveling display to raise awareness about the many children available for adoption. The children's stories and photographs are artfully portrayed with hopes that families will be moved to consider adoption. If you are interested in hosting the Gallery at your place of worship, business or organization please e-mail us at and we will arrange for you to have it there.
