God Bless the Children

Welcome to the official Web page for the God Bless the Children project! An impressive number of Nashville recording artists have united to record a new song and video “God Bless the Children” to emphasize the need to find families for the more than 119,000 children that are available for adoption in the U.S. foster care system. Once released, all proceeds from the sale of the song will support the efforts of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a public charity dedicated to increasing adoption awareness.

The video is being created by multi award-winning director, John Lloyd Miller, and an impressive list of country music stars have jointed together with the Nashville production community to offer their time and talent to ensure that this project is a success.

We know that when people hear this song they will be inspired to help these waiting children. If the lyrics and images in the video can convince even one person to find out more about adoption, then we have accomplished what we set out to do with this project.

Adoption from Foster Care

According to the most recent data, there are approximately 119,000 children in foster care in the United States who are available for adoption.

Since 1987, the number of children in foster care has nearly doubled, and the average time a child languishes in foster care before being adopted is more than five years. Each year, approximately 20,000 children will age out of foster care without ever being placed with a permanent family.
