AdoptTogether is a non-profit, crowdfunding platform that bridges the gap between families who want to adopt and the children who need loving homes.
Hank Fortener, Founder of AdoptTogether, understands the burdensome blessing that is the adoption process. His family fostered 36 children and adopted 6 from 5 different countries while he was growing up. He knows firsthand how painful & euphoric adopting a child can be, and it is this experienced heart for adoption that drives AdoptTogether.

Adoption provides children a loving and supportive home, equipping them with the resources needed to overcome the challenges faced with foster care. Adopting at birth puts in place the support system that many children otherwise lack.
