The art in the Forgotten Futures awareness campaign illustrates adoption and foster care issues in an upfront and easily digestible way. Our goal is to get people to pay attention. The kids in the foster care system need us all to pay attention.” – Juliana Whitney, Founder & President of That Adopted Girl Inc.
