RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Children's Home Society of Virginia is trying to find adoptive families for about 90 older children in foster care.
The nonprofit's president, Nadine Marsh-Carter, tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that these children are at risk of "aging out" of foster care without being adopted.
She says children who age out of foster care without being adopted lack the stability of a family. They're likely to make poor choices and fall through the cracks.
The $15,000 campaign is funded by a grant of more than $55,000 from the Sunshine Lady Foundation.
