In the ’90s, China opened itself up for international adoption and quickly became the country with the most children adopted to the United States.
Now, demand for international adoption remains decently high in the U.S., while supply decreases.
Under the new fee structure, adoption agencies should see accrediting fees rise by nearly 800 percent annually.
In the past 10 years, the number of international adoption agencies has decreased from roughly 200 to 160.
On one hand, it’s good that so many feeder countries for international adoption are find ways to take care of children within their borders.
