Adoption from Foster Care or Embrace Refugees?
When it comes to parenting, there are no perfect answers–but the 112,000 children awaiting adoption from foster care don’t mind. Created by KBS for AdoptUSKids, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Ad Council, this PSA is inspired by real stories from adoptive teens and their parents to reassure potential adoptive parents that “you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent.”
Refugees flee a life that is threatened daily by war and civil unrest, in which children can’t go to school without fearing for their safety, and some days there’s not enough food to eat. This spot, created through crowd-sourcing platform Tongal, helps inspire empathy by showing American kids speaking the words of refugee children.
