One child waiting is one too many.

Somewhere in Calgary tonight, a child will go to bed in a room that's not his own, will cry for a mother who is not there, will long for the embrace of a father to keep her safe. A child is waiting to belong.

There are more than 30,000 adoptable kids in Canada who are waiting, hundreds in Calgary alone. They are waiting for a forever family . . . but you can help end the wait.

About End the Wait Calgary

End the Wait helps connect Calgary's children in government care with the families who want to welcome them home. We also want to grow supportive communities who want to serve vulnerable children right here in Calgary. We host informative and inspirational events throughout the Calgary region in partnership with churches and individuals who share our heart for vulnerable children waiting to be welcomed home to a family.

Our partner initiative, Waitingtobelong.ca, is a one-stop informational resource on foster care and adoption from a Christian perspective. Containing stories, articles, videos, and referrals to resources, Waitingtobelong.ca is designed to support families and their church communities in the foster and adoption journey.

End the Wait and Waitingtobelong.ca are initiatives of Focus on the Family Canada.
