Adoption Exchanges: These are generally non-profit organizations that help locate and recruit prospective adoptive parents, generally for the adoption of children with special needs, and to connect them with adoption agencies that can assist them in adopting a child that is in the foster care system. Many states operate their own adoption exchange that maintains a listing of adoptable children waiting in their foster care system, as well as a listing of families who have completed their adoption home study with a state agency and are seeking a suitable adoption opportunity. Many states publish a photo-listing book that contains a description and photographs of the available children that are waiting for adoption in their state. Regional, national, and international exchanges facilitate adoption matches between children and families in more than one state, or even internationally.
