White House Petition
"We the People, recognizing a child’s right to a family when one is not available in his/her birth country and the loving character of American families, ask President Trump to investigate the causes of the 80% decline in intercountry adoptions since 2004 and to solve the U.S. international adoption crisis. The leadership of the Office of Children’s Issues has been unresponsive to collaborating with the adoption community to solve problems and continues to reinterpret regulations in ways unintended by Congress in the Hague Intercountry Adoption Act. We need pro-adoption leadership who will increase the number of ethical adoptions. The adoption community stands ready to work with the Administration to implement various achievable solutions to help orphans find loving, permanent families."

Sign the White House Petition Now, Asking for Change in Adoption Leadership

Not all problems with our government are easy to solve.  But the decline in intercountry adoption is a problem with a very straightforward solution.  The Department of State needs to replace the Chief of the Adoption Division in the Office of Children’s Issues.  The new Division Chief needs to be a person who actually believes that the best interest of a child is served in a permanent, loving family – and that solution is available in intercountry adoption if a permanent family is not found in the child’s home country.  We understand that moving a civil servant employee out of their position is not easy – and the scandals at the V.A. Administration has given us many examples.  But, we need to put the best interests of children ahead of the interests of an entrenched bureaucracy in protecting their own.  A change of leadership is essential and it needs to be done NOW.  Contact your Senators and Representatives and tell them delay is not acceptable.  Pointing to isolated examples of agency misconduct does not come close to the misconduct of the Office of Children’s Issues.  We can’t wait for the results of the Inspector General’s investigation – we want ACTION!

​Thank you Senator Roger Wicker, Mississippi, for leading the Save Adoptions charge to shine the light on problems within the U.S. ​State Department for intercountry adoptions. Senator Wicker recently welcomed a group of Save Adoptions supporters from around the U.S. to discuss how we can effect change and help the waiting children around the world.

With a seemingly infinite number of orphaned children the world, and a seemingly infinite number of familieswilling to adopt them, the only thing that limits adoptions is policy. Adoptions rise and fall on the policy of the United States and other countries who cooperate.

There are at least 168,000,000 orphaned children in the world, and the best way to respond to their crisis is to place them in permanent, loving families. But international adoptions have declined by 75% since 2004. Why? Because our nation’s current adoption policy is not geared toward increasing adoptions. This is a shame because ADOPTION PREVENTS TRAFFICKING. ​

​Thank you for your support!!!
