For over two years, the nonprofit “Together We Rise” has been sharing adorable photos of foster kids on the day they were adopted into their “forever families.”

The pictures are posted on the company’s Facebook and Instagram pages to reveal how much time they spent in foster care before their adoptions.

Together We Rise helps to improve the lives of foster children in the U.S. by providing them with school supplies, bicycles, educational programs and even college scholarships.

“With so much negative news surrounding foster care we just want highlight the positive with amazing adoptions that are happening every day,” TWR Executive Director, Gianna Dahlia, told The Huffington Post.

“There are many negative stereotypes surrounding kids in foster care, but they are just children who want loving families — and there are families out there fighting for them,” she added.

“We just want to inspire those families either going the process or considering the adoption process that it can be done and it is worth it.”
