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.



Brezan, 20, is ready to make her mark in the world. Excited to start her senior year of college, this psychology major wants to make a difference in the lives of others. After college she plans to further her education by pursuing a graduate degree in social work. She also has dreams of moonlighting as a television actress. As a full-time student, Brezan also works as a home health aide where her compassion shines through. Recently, she helped an elderly man in her care fulfill one of his lifelong wishes to be on television.

When she isn’t in school or helping others, Brezan enjoys reading, swimming, playing volleyball, and listening to R&B music.

While Brezan helps others achieve their aspirations, her own wish is to be embraced by a forever family as she works to fulfill her dreams. “I need reaffirming support and someone I can call on,” Brezan says.

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
