Samantha's Sweet Story Of Finding A Forever Home

How sweet it is to see the results of one of our 'suite' stories and of our collective labor! We introduced you to Samantha a little over a year ago on Wednesday's Child at an MTV Awards pre-show gifting suite. While Samantha enjoyed the VIP treatment and the gifts she received that day, the biggest gift that resulted was that of a forever family.

The adoption of Samantha finalized in court almost a year to the day that her suite segment aired back in 2011.  Samantha was able to start this school year with a new lease on life as she no longer was part of the foster care system!  Samantha and her mom could hardly contain their joy as the adoption was finalized, and we want to share some of their story (and their joy) with you!  Tune in to Wednesday's Child on FOX 11's 10 O'clock News this Wednesday and Sunday to see the sweet results of Samantha's suite story.

For more information about adoption:
Please call 866-921- ADOPT (2367)
Wednesday's Child is sponsored by the Freddie Mac Foundation

    This week we want to make a federal case for Joseph (1998) finding a forever family, so we obtained the necessary clearances to accompany Joseph to the Los Angeles Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And during our friendly investigation, we found Joseph to be a dynamic teen with a good bit of focus and determination for someone his age.

    We're in the hazy days of August and soon it will be back-to-school for many children… or the very first day of school for kids like Khalid (2009), who will be starting kindergarten soon. But before he heads off to school, we swooped up Khalid and his baby sister Ah'Niyah (2011) for a day of fun and play at Pelican Pier at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, California.
