Staying Up to Date on Adoption News

Adoption is something that is constantly changing and evolving, as evidenced by the progress we’ve made in the United States from secretive, closed adoptions of the past to the encouraged open adoptions of today. It can be tough to keep up — and it can also be tough to get accurate information. It’s important to stay up-to-date on adoption laws as well as statistics and general information, no matter what your relationship to adoption is. To help, we’ve compiled a list of good sources of adoption news.

Some of these sources are dedicated solely to adoption news, like:

  • The American Adoptions Blog: American Adoptions is an adoption agency that is dedicated to keeping their audience up to date on adoption happenings. Follow this blog for everything from newsworthy updates to suggestions for parenting adopted kids.
  • Adoptive Families magazine: Whether you’re interested in adoption or parenting adopted kids, Adoptive Families has articles for just about any adoption-related topic.
  • Adoption.com: This site has articles about all things adoption, plus community forums for members of the adoption community to chat.
  • Us! Considering Adoption is dedicated solely to providing you with adoption information and news.

Other good resources are publications that aren’t specifically dedicated to adoption, but instead have adoption sections, including:

Of course, these resources aren’t the only ones that feature adoption news. General news outlets will pick up major adoption stories, as well as blogs and social media. Remember, the more you know, the better prepared you’ll be for the adoption process!
