There are about two million American couples waiting to adopt a baby, but only about 50,000 babies are placed for adoption every year compared to approximately 1.3 million babies aborted every year. Furthermore, each of these couples would want two or three, if available. Many will take hard-to-place children with special needs.1

The resources provided below will help you make the best decision regarding adoption. Should you choose to adopt, they will help you find the best possible family for your child.
