Fewer Children Eligible for Adoption Despite Demand

Americans are adopting fewer children but it's not for lack of desire. It's because of lack of eligible children.

USA Today reports that the number of Americans seeking to adopt hasn't changed in recent years, but international adoptions are at a 20-year low.

The report lists adoption fraud as a major reason for the decline. Some couples have lost tens of thousands of dollars in scams.

Those looking for a child here at home are also finding a shortage of adoptable children.

One explanation is that as single parenthood becomes more common in U.S. society, fewer unwed mothers are placing children for adoption.
