Children Running out of TimeJune 12, 2017
One of the hardest things about the world of adoption is watching children reach an age at which they become ineligible for adoption (commonly referred to as “aging out”). These children face uncertain and often tragic futures, as we’ve written about before.
There are seven children on our site who are set to age out soon. For the first six children below (all from Europe), if a family hasn’t filed their I–800A with USCIS before their birthdays, their windows will close. These children will age out either this month or next month. There is still time for them, but admittedly not much. (Note that their adoptions don’t need to be completed by their birthdays; the I–800A—an early step in the adoption process—just has to be filed.) The last child, Scott, ages out next year, but his adoption will have to be completed before his 14th birthday.
Please read about these children’s stories, pray for them, and help spread the word about them. There is no time to lose in trying to find their forever families.
