Areas of Focus

  • Infant Adoption
    Since our founding 30 years ago, approximately three million adoptions have occurred in this country – including all domestic adoptions that take place annually. NCFA's Adoption Factbook includes a comprehensive report on all adoption statistics. Through adoption, these children have enjoyed the love and security that come with having parents and families of their own.
  • Adoption Out of Foster Care
    In 2008, the most recent year for which statistics are available, there were 463,000 children in foster care, of whom 123,000 were waiting to be adopted.
  • Intercountry Adoption

    Intercountry adoption peaked in 2004 when over 22,000 children orphaned in other countries were adopted by American families.
