The Show: "A Home for the Holidays" is an annual holiday special that looks at the joys, rewards and success stories of adoption, one of the nation's most pressing and underreported social crises. In fact, there are more than 500,000 children currently in foster care in the United States, and this program aims to raise awareness about this important social issue through inspirational stories about adoption. The special is presented in association with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children's Action Network (CAN). CAN was founded in 1990 by leaders in the entertainment industry, including Henry Winkler and Steven Spielberg, to harness the power of the media on behalf of children. The special is part of CAN's National Adoption Campaign to raise awareness of the joys of adopting and to find homes for the children who are waiting.
