Each time I adopted a new son, our first meal was always at Wendy’s to celebrate our first meal together (supper time together was mandatory).

Thank you, Dave Thomas, and thank you to all the wonderful parents throughout the United States who have adopted children!

And a VERY special thank you to Patricia Hill, and the wonderful staff at A.C.T.I.O.N. Adoption Services!
