OHIO: Jenny* has been in foster care for years. Each birthday and holiday marks yet another milestone not spent with her family.
When an adoption recruiter from the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids® (WWK) program received Jenny’s case, she created a family tree using the Connect Our Kids technology platform. As she researched family names, the recruiter was astonished to discover that Jenny is related to another child on her caseload—living in the same county! No one in the referring county agency had previously realized these two children were related.
The WWK recruiter continues to search for permanent placements for Jenny and her cousin.
