Day for Wednesday's Child CBS4 Logo


For over 30 years, The Adoption Exchange and CBS 4 have joined together to find families for children who are waiting in foster care. Each Wednesday, CBS 4 features a child who is waiting for a permanent, loving family to call their own. And each year, The Adoption Exchange and CBS 4 dedicate an entire day, A Day for Wednesday’s Child, to spread awareness for these children.

This year A Day for Wednesday’s Child is April 9, 2014! Throughout the day, CBS 4 and The Adoption Exchange will be airing stories of Colorado children who are waiting in foster care for families. Also, children who have found their family will be sharing their stories of what life is like for them now. So tune in to CBS4 Denver on Wednesday, April 9 and join hundreds of other in supporting the hundreds of Colorado children waiting for a place to call home and the families who adopt!


On Wednesday, April 9, participating Denver Area Wendy's will donate 10% of all sales from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. to A Day for Wednesday's Child benefitting The Adoption Exchange. Have a great meal and help the kids!
