More than 400,000 children and youth are in foster care in the United States right now.  Of those children, more than 100,000 will not be able to return home and are waiting for families to adopt them.

The Adoption Exchange Association (AEA) is the country’s premiere national network of adoption professionals and organizations. AEA members stand together as a united voice for all children and youth waiting to be adopted in the US foster care system.

Our members work to recruit, retain, and support families for children in foster care. AEA facilitates the sharing of best and promising practices between members through our trainings, conferences, national match events and resources. 

A project funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
