MAKE A CHILD'S RIGHT TO A FAMILY OUR PRIORITY

    1. Petition by

      Both Ends Burning Campaign

Conservative estimates say more than 10 million children around the world live outside a family setting, in institutions or on the street. In reality, that number may be much higher.

Adoptions into the U.S. have fallen by more than 60 percent since 2004, due in large part to a broken system filled with delays, bureaucracy, discrimination and staggering costs. In the meantime, children are suffering.
