|The Day I Picked My Parents is a five-hour documentary series that follows ten foster children who are part of a revolutionary program operated |
by the nonprofit organization Kidsave in California, as they search to find their forever home. For the first time in their lives, they will have input into their own destiny as they decide where they want to live and who will be their family. Kidsave partners with Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services to turn the adoption process on its head. Through a pioneering program Kidsave developed, kids who have been in
foster care for much of their lives are being asked what they want, how
they want to live and are given the power to picking their own parents.
