She's Adopted

They just didn't tell her

Adoption in America

on February 3, 2013

Since 1990, adoption rates in the United States have gradually risen. Data shows a 15% increase in the past 10 years, and in 2007 alone, more than 136,000 adoptions were recorded. Many people who adopt children will undoubtedly come in contact with a social worker throughout the process, whether prior to an adoption or once an adoption is complete.

The USC School of Social Work created the infographic “Adoption in America” to provide better insight into the adoption process in our country. It also gives a snapshot of who’s involved, from the facilitators to the parents and children who eventually become a family. We hope this inspires you to get involved and make a difference in an orphan’s life.
