FOREVER FAMILIES

In partnership with Partnerships for Children, TWCN's Jennifer Borget takes her number one priority -- family-- and gives you a glimpse into the eyes of a foster child who needs one. Every Sunday, Jennifer sheds light on some of the issues surrounding foster care and adoption and introduces you to children looking for Forever Families.

Siblings, groups and teenagers are labeled harder to adopt because adoptive parents are often looking for younger children. Our Jennifer Borget sat down with 15-year-old Derek who was guarded about his feelings but still shared why he wants a forever family. 07/06/2014 12:15 PM
