Wednesday's Child

Wednesday's Child is a part of the Dave Thomas Foundation's national campaign to increase adoptions of children in foster care. Each Wednesday (and again on Sunday mornings), a child in foster care who is waiting for a loving, adoptive home is profiled during the evening news on WNBC 4.

Raven

Raven

Raven, 16, a budding writer and avid reader was thrilled to be able to hone her craft at a special one-on-one lesson with the instructors from Gotham Writers Workshop. She particularly enjoyed sharing her thoughts on character development, topics she enjoys writing about and her favorite authors.

Headed to the 10th grade this coming school year, this talented teen can’t wait to go back to English class and has her eyes set on becoming a journalist with her own talk show.

Raven’s dream is to have a family who can support and love her. She also would like a family that can share in her adventures and provide guidance along the way

About Wednesday's Child

Wednesday's Child is hosted by NBC meteorologist Janice Huff, who encourages viewers to call the ACS Parent Recruitment Hotline at 212-676-WISH to learn more about the adoption process.

Wednesday’s Child is an award-winning program began in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in 1992 which features children who are waiting in foster care to be adopted and success stories of families who have adopted from foster care. Because of its phenomenal success, the program was expanded to other cities around the country. In April 1999 Wednesday's Child started in New York City as a collaboration between WNBC 4 and Freddie Mac Foundation. Since January 1, 2014 the Dave Thomas Foundation has sponsored Wednesday’s Child. For more information, visit the Dave Thomas Foundation website at www.davethomasfoundation.org
