Meet the Kids

Nationwide nearly one-quarter of kids in foster care cannot be reunified with their biological families and are seeking to be adopted.
Our I Belong Project is an innovating video storytelling initiative that elevates the faces and voices of adoption-eligible kids to help connect them with potential adoptive families.

Whether you are just beginning your journey to foster, a seasoned foster parent considering adoption or someone with a heart for vulnerable kids, take time now and meet some of the amazing kids in our community bravely pursuing belonging.

[One thing I love about IBP videos is that] all you see and hear is the child …. And the kids do a wonderful job of showing their strengths, personalities, vulnerability, etc.,much better than any narrative we could write. I just want you to know that I am so glad and appreciative that you brought Kentucky Kids Belong to KY. Working with [your team is] an absolute breeze, and you provide us with an opportunity to have a fun day with our kids.”
