What if My Family is Not Matched?

Every year, we have more families needing adoption than sponsors able to adopt. If for some reason your family is unable to be matched or you miss the deadline, don’t worry! Unmatched families will be able to attend our one-day-only TOY STORE event.

On December 14, we invite parents of UNMATCHED families to come to our one-day-only TOY STORE, where they can choose gifts for their children to open Christmas morning. Your family is still required to complete an IN-PERSON application for this. 

IMPORTANT: There will be NO TOYS available after the December 14 Toy Store event so make sure to SAVE THE DATE!
