There are over 437,000 children currently living in Foster Care in the United States. Of those 437,000 children, 117,000+ are waiting for a family to adopt them. It is estimated that over 60% of human trafficking victims have a history in foster care - vulnerable and often forgotten or unseen, they are targeted directly.
Founded in November of 2018, The Wild & Whimsy Foundation is an evolving initiative that exists to Raise Awareness, Resource Families, and Restore Childhood Magic.
Shortly after it was established, The Wild & Whimsy Foundation donated 75 Holiday Dresses to the little beauties of a local Foster Family Agency. What began as a very personal yearning of Wild [&] Whimsy founder Ryam Teran [who adopted her own daughter through foster care] to gift the “magic” of a new dress to as many little girls as possible, quickly exploded into a burning desire to do MORE for the children who are placed in Foster Care.
A dress alone won’t change the world, but BRAVE little girls [and boys!}, who are seen, loved, and have hope restored, absolutely can!
Stay tuned for information on future initiatives. We are just getting started!
