Support Adoption, Eat a Frosty

I now notice the word adoption showing up everywhere: In Mass, at work (one of the forms we use is called an "IRA Adoption Agreement"), and today at Wendy's.

Tonight I decided to treat myself to a Frosty and saw this sign while in the drive-thru:

Notice at the bottom:
Donations Benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption
I was intrigued, and also excited at the prospect of 5 Jr. Frosty coupons for $1. So, in addition to enjoying my chocolatey dessert, I bought a coupon book.

Then I went home and checked out the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Turns out that Wendy's is a big champion of helping children in foster care find forever families. The foundation provides resources to adoption agencies and social workers to help the highest-need children get adopted. Dave Thomas (Wendy's founder) also championed the adoption tax credit before Congress and supported the creation of an adoption stamp.

It is so refreshing to see an organization that supports adoption. What a beautiful mission, and one worth supporting. I have a feeling I'm going to be eating a lot more Frosty's in the coming months!

  4. We bought several books of the frosty coupons. We send them to our nieces/nephews out of state instead of candy. Since my husbands family is made up of 5 adopted siblings + 2 biological. It is a nice tribute to their family.

    1. That is such a good idea, we live out of state from both our families, neices, and nephews. Nice! I will probably copy you.
