Wednesday's Child is a news feature, presented by 8 News NOW Anchor Dave Courvoisier. The program helps foster care children in our community find "forever homes." Every Wednesday during 8 News NOW at 4pm, Dave presents children, and/or sibling sets of children hoping to be adopred, and find a permanent family. Interested viewers are provided a phone number to call to begin the journey of adoption via the Adoption Exchange. By becoming a sponsor you help ensure Las Vegans are aware of an over-loaded child care system and the wonderful children waiting to become a part of a family.
