New National Adoption Recruitment Campaign Launched!
AdoptUSKids’ latest series of ads ask prospective parents to consider adopting older youth between the ages of 11 and 17 as this age group is not only overrepresented in foster care, but waits much longer than average to find a permanent home.

Approximately 399,546 children are in foster care in the United States right now. 101,719 of those children will not be able to return to home and are waiting for families to adopt them.

Because of many dedicated organizations around the country, more than 49,866 children in U.S. foster care are adopted each year. But that’s simply not enough. Last year, 23,439 children-64 each and every day-aged out of foster care without permanent families, alone and not prepared for life’s challenges.

How can you help ensure that every waiting child finds a family?



A project funded by the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services.
