<< return to list

There are at least 1.3 million families who are waiting to adopt. There are only 50,000 children made available for adoption every year. There are 20-25 couples seeking to adopt for every newborn available. Adoption may be the answer for you!

Statistics:

The Search Institute Study (1994) 
shows the positive outcomes for 
those adopted.

They have strong feelings of 
security within their family.

They do extremely well in school.

They attend college more often than 
the general population.

They experience lower rates of 
crime and drug abuse.

“It was not an easy decision anyway I decided. 
Ultimately, I chose adoption. Looking back, it was the 
right decision and I have no regrets, none at all.”
