Each year there are approximately 4 million births in the U.S. vs. only 2.4 million deaths
There are 463,000 children just in the U.S. foster care system; many of whom are available for adoption.
More children become available for adoption each year than are adopted.
Children often wait five years or more to be adopted., move three or more times in foster care and often are separated from siblings.

Each year, one in five children (29,516 in 2008) who are available for adoption turn 18 and leave the foster care system without a family
Every child is adoptable. Many children in foster care have special needs. All of them deserve the chance to grow up in a safe, loving, permanent home. Support and other post-adoption resources are available.
Adopting from foster care is permanent. Once a child is adopted out of foster care, the birth parents cannot attempt to claim them or fight in court for their return. A family formed through foster care adoption is forever.
According to a National Adoption Attitudes Survey commissioned by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, 63 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of adoption and 78 percent think more should be done to encourage adoption.
Nearly 40 percent of American adults, or 81.5 million people, have considered adopting a child, according to the National Adoption Attitudes Survey. If just one in 500 of these adults adopted, every waiting child in foster care would have a permanent family.
It is a scientific & medical fact that the risk of health issues and/or mortalithy for the mother & birth defects and/or mortality for the baby/babies increases exponentially every year over the age of 35 , , , Even more so if Fertility Treatments are invoved!
