adoption in America

Some students in the USC Master’s of Social Work program created this infographic. It’s quite informative! And beautifully done. They mention adoption caseworkers at the bottom — that’s my job!

(Also, note: They misuse “orphan,” in my opinion. An orphan is traditionally defined as a child who has lost one or both parents. Many kids in the foster care system in the US and other countries have both parents living.)
