Wednesday's Child


Every week, Wednesday’s Child features children who are waiting in foster care to be adopted or success stories of families who have adopted from foster care. Hosted by Barbara Harrison of NBC4 Washington, the television segments highlight each child’s special personality and interests.

Wednesday’s Child airs Wednesdays during the 5:00 P.M. news on NBC4, Thursdays during the 11:00 A.M. news, and Sundays during the 9:00 A.M. news. Hundreds of children in the region have found an adoptive family after appearing on Wednesday’s Child. 

You may tab through the photo gallery above to see the children or consult the table below and click on a child's name to learn more information. Each page has a link to the child's video segment.

You can also support Wednesday's Child through a tax-deductible, charitable donation.
