Henok is one of tens of thousands of children who enter the United States as adoptees each year. And while Henok’s life and the lives of other children adopted from orphanages are improved through this act, the families benefit as well. Childless couples, individuals and even large families’ lives are made more joyous as adopted children are integrated into family life.

Sources for adoption are plentiful and include agency adoption, private adoption, domestic and international adoption, as well as adoption through foster care. Adoption.com is a great resource for information on options. Peruse our forums as well as articles addressing the questions you may have.
