This is a photo of the the grandchildren on my husband’s side of the family many years ago. That’s Amber sitting on my mother-in-law’s lap, and she’s 18 now! So why am I showing you this photo? It’s because families aren’t always made up by genetics and just by looking at this photo one would not be aware that more than half of these grandchildren weren’t born into our family, rather they were chosen to become a part of our family by adoption.
Actually, there are two more grandchildren that aren’t on this photo – another that came through adoption and one by birth. So you can imagine that adoption is close to our hearts, as our extended family would be incomplete without it.
That’s why I’m a supporter of buying the Jr. Frosty™ Halloween Coupon Book for $1 at Wendy’s®. 90¢ of every $1 coupon booklet sold between 9/15/14 and 10/31/14 benefits the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®.
For 22 years, Wendy’s® has supported foster care adoption. Not all the children loved above came into our family as babies. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® believes that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. As founder Dave Thomas said, “These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.” The DTFA exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America.
The cutie pie on the left with the heart around his face…he was adopted when he was two from a difficult situation where his birth mother just couldn’t care for him any more. He’s now 21 years old and has thrived in a loving home.
Thanks to Wendy’s® consumers and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®, 4,000+ children have found adoptive families.
These coupon booklets make great reward incentives for your kids, or for handing out on Halloween. I purchased a booklet and am mailing them to my daughter who is at college. There’s a Wendy’s® right around the corner from the campus, and she can treat some of her friends to a Jr. Frosty™ after some serious studying!
*Coupon book may contain coupons for 5 or 10 free Jr. Frosty™ treats. Prices and participation may vary. Ninety cents to every $1 coupon booklet sold between 9/15/14 and 10/31/14 will benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. Coupons valid from 11/1/14 through 2/1/15. ©2014 Oldemark LLC
