There are over 118,000 children in the U.S. foster care system currently waiting for an adoptive family. However, older teens have lower adoption rates and spend 50% more time waiting to be adopted than younger children. No matter our age, we never outgrow the need for a loving and supportive family. Whether prospective parents can successfully wake up a teen or not, parents don’t have to know it all to be a perfect parent to a teenager – they just need to be there.
