Most Bieber-lovin’, sports-playin’ teens share photos and thoughts on their own Facebook profiles, but Bethany Christian Services is sharing on behalf of many teens this month.

The nonprofit’s Facebook campaign, 30 Families for 30 Kids, is an effort to raise awareness of the amount of older children in foster care waiting for adoption. While stats for children in foster care across the U.S. have dropped over the last 10 years, the amount of older children who age out of foster care (at 18 years old) without ties to their biological or an adoptive family is still high (26,286 in the U.S.).
