Success stories

"If it wasn't for being adopted, I would not be where I am today. Fully educated, running my own business, being part of a loving family and being able to enjoy life. Adoption changed my life...if I wasn't adopted when I was...I'd probably be destitute...or dead...So thanks to you (Wednesday's Child, CTV Television, Children and Youth Services) for making it possible."
– Sarah, a former Wednesday's Child

"I don't ever want to see the program stop. It helps kids. I want other children to be as happy as I was and to be able to be adopted. I want kids to have a chance, like I did."
– Mike, a former Wednesday's Child
