What is Wednesday's Child? How to get the process started

News 8's Cynthia Izaguirre reveals her passion for her weekly Wednesday's Child reports

Our Wednesday's Child reports offer a glimpse into a child's life in foster care who wants more than anything to be adopted.

The children we feature are in the care of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services due to abuse and neglect. Families who adopt children through the agency should have an understanding or be willing to learn the dynamics of abuse and neglect.

The parental rights of these children have been terminated; therefore we are seeking an adoptive family for them. The children we feature are all ages, races, and ethnicities. The biggest population of children in foster care are sibling groups and school-age children.

How to get the process started

WFAA and Child Protective Services partner to spotlight these children in hopes that one day a child's wish of a "forever family" will come true.
