Matching Mondays ~ 13 year old hopes to be adopted.


America has gotten a bit of a wake up call thanks to this courageous young man.
Davion Only

Let's allow Davion's courage to inspire us to do more to help children in our own areas find that special family meant for them, feel loved, be safe and be allowed to become the adults they are meant to become.
Here are some things you can do to help children in your area.
1.  Adopt a waiting child.  Go here to learn more about children in your area who are hoping for a family. Heart Galleries of America
2.  Check your local photo listing of waiting children in your area and link your friends in your social media networks to the photo listing or one child or the entire gallery.
3.  Call your local children services and find out how you can volunteer your time to help children in foster care.   Ask to be a mentor, become a licensed foster parent, help with birthday gifts and Christmas gifts etc.
4.  Volunteer to help at events that invite family to learn about children waiting in your area.  Help promote the event...the more that attend the more hearts will feel and see the need and the more will want to help and the more will want to adopt.
5.  Pray for the children to be adopted.
6.  Do community outreach to help others in your area become aware of the needs of the children.
7.  Watch out for families around you...is there a family in need?  See if you can help meet the need yourself or with help from others or professionals.


Fadhili age 13 is hoping for a forever family!
A natural athlete and leader, Fadhili can often be found on the field or court. While he loves all sports, football and basketball are easily his favorites. Fadhili does his best to treat others with respect and fairness and hopes for the same in return. Music and dance are other interests of this talented and outgoing guy. Using humor to overcome life’s trials and hardships, Fadhili is known for his resilient nature. He has many goals and dreams, but his greatest hope is to have a family of his own.

Fadhili is in the eighth grade and benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). He is in counseling, which will need to continue after placement.

If your family is interested in this charming, talented lad, we urge you to inquire. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

This is a LEGAL RISK ADOPTIVE PLACEMENT. In a legal risk adoptive placement, it is expected that the family will eventually adopt the child, even though the birth parents’ rights have not been fully terminated at the time of placement.

For Utah children, only home studied families from all states are encouraged to inquire.

 You can inquire about these children by clicking on their names above to go to their profile page or you can contact The Utah Adoption Exchange by calling:  801.265.0444
