Recruitment & Matching

As every child is unique, we tailor a recruitment plan to each individual child.  We find that when we are able to have the children take part in their own recruitment efforts, there is often an enthusiastic response. Below are some of the recruitment and matching services we offer.



Tuesday’s Child
The award winning news segment Tuesday’s Child on NBC 10 features a Rhode Island waiting child or an adoption-related story every Tuesday during the 12pm and 5pm news broadcast.



Wendy’s Wonderful Kids
Adoption Rhode Island is the local adoption partner for Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. This program uses a child-focused recruitment model which is highly effective in increasing adoptions from the foster care system.
