There are more than 700 children who are ready for foster to adoption in Virginia. They are ready to find a permanent and loving forever family. 10 News profiles one child who needs a home every day during 30 Days of Hope. The children are all ages and races and were put into foster care due to no fault of their own. 2020 marks the fourth year 10 News is doing this series. 30 Days of Hope may be over, but there is still a need so we are continuing this series on Mondays in December.
These sisters hope to find a family that is willing to adopt them together after being separated in foster care.
