Adopting From Foster Care – What You Don’t Know

This poster compiles some interesting statistics about foster care and foster adoption.

For example, did you know that 45% of children placed in foster care were under one year of age? That 84%-95% of parents who adopted from foster care would do it again? That 39% of kids adopted from foster care still have some contact with birth family members? That the vast majority of foster adoptions are completed by people who are not related to the children?

What statistic here was the most surprising to you?
