November is National Adoption Month. It’s a time to raise awareness of the need for permanent families for children in the foster care system.
KX News spoke with Mrs. International who is from North Dakota about her very own adoption platform. She says In 2019, about 122,216 children in the U.S. were waiting to be adopted. That’s a little more than one in four foster youth who were in need of forever homes.
As Mrs. International, part of her BE A FOSTER Movement, Ashley encourages people impacted by infertility to embrace adoption and foster parenting. She and her husband Andrew are adopting their three foster kids through an organization called Adults Adopting Special Kids, or AASK.
