About AEA and AdoptUSKids:

Founded in 1982, the Adoption Exchange Association (AEA) is the country's premier national association of adoption professionals and organizations. AEA is the only national association focused exclusively on supporting the educational needs of those in the adoption profession. The organization serves adoption exchanges, private child-placing agencies, and public child welfare systems by engaging members in national discussions to eliminate barriers to foster care adoption and share best practices. www.adoptea.org


AdoptUSKids is a federally-funded grant operated by AEA and its partners. AdoptUSKids educates families about foster care and adoption and gives child welfare professionals information and support to help them improve their services. The mission is to: raise public awareness about the need for foster and adoptive families for children in the public child welfare system; and assist US states, territories, and tribes to recruit, engage, develop and support foster and adoptive families. www.adoptuskids.org
