Perfect Parent

A national adoption recruitment campaign—a partnership of the US Children’s Bureau, AdoptUSKids, and the Ad Council—promotes adoption from foster care and raises awareness of the 112,000 children and youth who are waiting to be adopted.

Built around the theme “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” this annual campaign uses humor to illustrate that youth in foster care don’t need perfection; they need the commitment and love a permanent adoptive family can provide.

Become a Foster Family

Foster parents are a unique group of people and have one thing in common: they want to provide children with a temporary supportive home while they are separated from their families.

Wesley House Family Services recruits, trains, and supports foster families for Monroe County children who can no longer remain safely in their own homes and do not have relatives to care for them.
