America–Baskets, baskets everywhere.

There are 500,000 children waiting for homes in America's foster care system.  We don't half to travel half-way around the world we live in a country with a half-million orphans.

They are every age, ethnicity and background.  Notice that I said, "legally free."  That is, there are no legal encumbrances to their being adopted.  Unfortunately, there are far more children in the foster care system in various stages of the legal process.  Good-hearted social workers and advocates are working to reunite them with their family but when all plans fail they become legally free.

The good news is that they are in a basket–safe, floating, waiting…for you to come to the riverside.
