Adoption Resources Online
The best places to look online for adoption information
Some of the best:
- The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute provides reports on the most recent adoption news and research, and offers a searchable database of over 1,000 articles on adoption
- Adopting.com helps prospective parents through the adoption process with links to information about getting started, support groups, and photo listings of children waiting for a home.
- Adopting.org offers the facts about all types of adoptions -- agency, independent, international, and attorney-assisted -- and hosts a forum in which parents can share their stories or have their adoption questions and concerns addressed by a variety of experts and parents.
- Adoption.com allows birth and adoptive parents, adoptees, and professionals to discuss topics ranging from infertility to transracial adoption via live chat rooms. Sponsored in part by AdoptionAgencies.Org, a multiagency adoption resource center also on the Web, the site includes a registry of people looking to adopt, and photos of waiting children.
