Helping All Children in Need

Here at the National Adoption Center, we’ve been following closely the recent events in Haiti. While we are encouraged by the seemingly limitless number of people who want to adopt these “earthquake orphans”, we are equally aware that there are nearly one-half million children and youth in our own nation’s foster care system that also want and deserve a family. Many of these children have been in care, waiting two years or more years for a permanate home. We hope this tragedy will encourage more people to open their homes to children in need. And we hope many prospective parents will look within our own borders to create their forever families.
