Across Canada there is approximately 30,000 youth that are ready and waiting to be adopted. However, only 2,000 of these children are adopted, yearly.
Children who become crown wards/ permanent wards are the lawful responsibility of the government, because their natural parents are no longer able to provide them with the necessities of life. Many of these children are bounced from home to home, lacking support and love from a permeant family. While dealing with their emotional, spiritual, mental and sometimes physical pain on their own; usually separated from their siblings. With the average age of a child waiting in the system to be adopted’ only being 8 years old and the typical wait time for adoption being over 5 years; it is way too long!
For those that do not find forever families, once they leave the care system they are highly more likely to drop out of school, become homeless, become a statistic in the justice system, or become teen parents once they leave care.
Remember that all these children have not chosen to go into the system, these kids have been born into situations that by no fault of their own have landed them in the system.
