The children who wait for adoption the longest are:
- children from minority racial groups
- children over 10 years old
- children in sibling groups
- children with physical or emotional disabilities.
Arrow is committed to finding these children permanent, loving homes. It can seem frightening to consider adopting an older or disabled child, or a sibilng group of three or more. These children require a high level of commitment, patience, and understanding - but many of these children will thrive in a loving home. They have the scars of past abuse and neglect, and sometimes the trauma of multiple moves during their stay in foster care. Once they become part of a ‘forever family' they can begin to heal and move past these scars, and blossom into the children and young adults they were meant to be.
