A local 10-year-old girl has just one wish for her birthday, which is later this month. At the top of her list, is finding a forever home.
It's been nearly a year since we first introduced you to two brothers in need of a forever home. In this Adopt 8, our Marcella Lee catches up with the boys, who are still waiting to find a place to call home.
Our latest Adopt 8 story shows just how much a child’s life can be changed through the gift of adoption.
She only has four more years left, before she "ages out" of the foster care system, but 14-year-old Newra has faith she'll find a forever home before it's too late.
Joseph is a toddler who was "safely surrendered" at a local hospital last year. He was just two days old when he went home from the hospital with a foster family who has since become his forever family.
News 8 and our viewers have watched 11-year-old Knolly grow up in the foster care system, but now she's growing out of her wheelchair. In this Adopt 8, our Marcella Lee catches up with Knolly, who has two wishes: a forever home, and a new set of wheels.
Two young brothers are ready to make the transition from their foster home to a forever home. In this Adopt 8, News 8's Marcella Lee shows us how the boys are blossoming.
A boy featured three times before on Adopt 8 is making another appearance, but this time, he's no longer waiting to find a forever home. Dwayne was recently adopted by a local couple, who saw his story here on News 8 and knew he belonged with them.
If you've always wanted to help a foster child, but aren't in a position to adopt, becoming a mentor could be the right fit. Dozens of foster youth in San Diego County are currently on a waiting list to be matched with a mentor.
Kylee is a 10-year-old who loves to explore nature and the outdoors. And she would like nothing more than a forever family to share in her adventures.
