ADOPTION SUPPORT

When families are joined together by adoption, there is generally a need for emotional and financial support. The children available for adoption through Wednesday’s Child and the Special Needs Adoption Program are eligible for many different services and programs. The families who adopt these children often receive medical help, financial assistance, and reimbursement for legal fees for the finalization of the adoption. In Kentucky, children considered “special needs” may also receive free tuition to Kentucky colleges or vocationals school. Adoption Subsidy 

Adoption support groups are available across Kentucky. These support groups help families as they work through issues related to adoption and blending of a family. Wednesday’s Child, Inc., helps support our local groups by providing funds for childcare and refreshments. To learn more click on the following links:

Every year Wednesday’s Child has an Adoption Family fun day. This year at Kentucky Kingdom we had over 400 people attend. Families received admission to the fair and a special luncheon. The funds used for this event are received during our annual Adopt-a-Thon held in December.

If you have a family photo and would like to submit a brief biography please contact us at Wednesdayschild@bellsouth.net. We are also looking for families who adopted 15-25 years ago to do follow-ups for our 25th year anniversary.

Right now, more than 300 Kentucky children are living in foster homes, group homes, and residential centers, waiting for adoptive families. They're not the babies many of us think of when we think of adoption.
