The Children’s Bureau is pleased to share with you the latest round of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) of the national adoption recruitment campaign for 2010.

The PSAs brilliantly illustrate to potential parents that siblings in foster care don't need perfection; they need the commitment and love a "forever family" can provide.
