A birthday to a child is a celebration of becoming another year older, and preparations for another fruitful year to come. Unfortunately, to many children in the foster care system, a birthday isn’t always a reality. Many children do not receive gifts, or even well wishes on their birthdays, and many do not even know when their birthday is.
We’ve had private detectives do some pro-bono work to find the birthdays of these children who were missing out on such a crucial part of their identity, and we’ve done our best to try and make sure that every child gets something to unwrap on their special day and a card that lets them know just how important they are; a message that often times, unfortunately, gets lost with some of these kids.
Every child deserves a birthday, and we’re doing what we can to make sure none go without one.
