Part 1: The Missing Piece
Raiden was a foster child hoping and praying someone would want to become his family. Chris and Jessica couldn’t have children themselves, and believed through adoption they could find the missing piece of their family. The Missing Piece is their family’s love story about the journey from foster to forever family.

This past Sunday Vickie Isaac, M.Ed, Founder and President of We Are Their Future, was interviewed on Valley Focus, a community focused radio program that airs on five Phoenix metro area radio stations. Valerie More, host of the program, graciously conducted the interview that focused on how Arizonans can help meet the needs of the over 17,000 Arizona foster children in the state foster system. Ixcel Baca from Building Arizona Families joined the interview to share about how Arizona foster children can be directly adopted from the state foster care system without becoming foster families.
Almost half of the children in foster care in Arizona remain in state care over a year. Research illustrates that children who remain in foster care without loving, stable homes are:
-Higher risk of dropping out of school
-Unlikely to attend college
-Higher risk for homelessness
-Higher risk for teen pregnancy
-1 in 4 will experience PTSD
Please take a few moments to listen to the radio interview and find out more about how to meet the practical needs of Arizona’s foster children. There is tremendous need, and it will take everyone to make sure these children are not forgotten, that they know they are loved, and that a bright future is insured for them. Be sure to go to the We Are Their Future website and sign up to foster, adopt, volunteer, or donate. Remember, everyone can do something!
