Adoption Agency Staff: Why We Do It?
“Consistency is the key,” says Bryan Miller, supervising children’s social worker in Los Angeles where Wednesday’s Child has been airing for more than 13 years. “We have a dedicated team at the agency and at the television station with a host that everyone knows and has come to associate with Wednesday’s Child. The show pulls on the heart strings of viewers because the child’s personality shines through, and they think to themselves, ‘This child deserves a family.’
We’ve been successful, even helping some 16 or 17-year-olds find families. Wednesday’s Child is often their last shot at finding permanency.”
