Give Something Back. In order to dramatically increase the number of children adopted from foster care, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (DTFA) developed Wendy's Wonderful Kids (WWK) and worked with us to elevate the system fundraising to support and grow the program in every state and throughout Canada. WWK is a groundbreaking program that has made a huge impact in the world of foster care adoption.  Created in 2004, Wendy's Wonderful Kids funds full-time adoption recruiters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. These recruiters focus exclusively on moving the longest-waiting children from foster care to adoptive families.  With 234 adoption recruiters, Wendy's Wonderful Kids has topped 6,000 finalized adoptions. In fact, every 12 hours a child is adopted from foster care because of this work. And a recently-released five-year research study on WWK shows that children served by the program are up to three times more likely to get adopted.  Wendy's Wonderful Kids is an exciting movement that we're very proud of. And it's further proof that we don't just ask, "What can we do?" - we ask, "How can we do it better?”
