As an advocate, it helps to have data at your fingertips to make your case. The state adoption fact sheets linked below were developed by ChildTrends with support from Casey Family Programs.

Using 2014 data, each fact sheet includes information about the following, with comparisons to national data:

  • number of children adopted from foster care in the state
  • number of children waiting to be adopted
  • length of time to adoption
  • age of waiting and adopted children
  • race and gender of children
  • transracial adoptions
  • relationship between the child and the adoptive parent (relative, non-relative, foster parent)


Our Mission

The North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) supports, educates, inspires, and advocates so adoptive families thrive and every child in foster care has a permanent, safe, loving family.
