Family will focus on supporting families for domestic adoption RELATED: Play NASCAR Fantasy Live " Sign up for RaceView today FORT WORTH, Texas -- NASCAR Nationwide Series driver James Buescher and his wife Kris announced at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday the launching of the Buescher Foundation to support domestic adoption. The former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion from Plano, Texas, and his wife adopted their son Stetson a little over a year ago and picked the first day of National Adoption Month to reveal the start of the first NASCAR driver foundation devoted to this cause. Kris Buescher said there are 100,000 children eligible for adoption in the United States and the average cost to adopt is $40,000. She said the foundation will provide grants, starting in the first quarter of next year, for people who are selected through the foundation's application process. "It's been a life-changing experience for us to become parents," James Buescher said. "Going through the adoption process we got to see firsthand what it entails and how difficult it can be, but also how rewarding it can be." According to Kris, there are 300,000 children in foster care in the United States and when they turn 18, they may not have homes to go to. That was a big reason why the Bueschers wanted to focus on domestic adoption for their foundation. In addition to financial support, the foundation will provide much-needed emotional support for families who are going through the adoption process. "It's a very, very tough thing to go through and if you don't have a good support system, it makes it even worse," Kris Buescher said. "So we just want to be there for those families." The Fraternal Order of Eagles presented a check for $50,000 on Saturday to the foundation. For more information on the Buescher Foundation, go to www.thebuescherfoundation.org.
