What are you waiting for?
Don Lemon, host of "CNN Tonight," is featured in the first of a new three-part series of public service announcements (PSAs) created by RaiseAChild.US to reach prospective foster and adoptive parents.
"In the U.S. there are at least 400,000 reasons for you to build or expand your family through fostering or adoption," said Lemon, referring to the large number of waiting children in the U.S. foster care system. "What are you waiting for? Let love define family." The additional two PSAs will roll out weekly in celebration of National Adoption Month.
RaiseAChild.US is a national organization headquartered in Hollywood, California that encourages the LGBT community and all persons equally to consider building their families through fostering and adoption to serve the needs of the 400,000 children in the U.S. foster care system.
