Profiles in Adoption is a national survey of adoptive family experiences recently launched by the National Council For Adoption (NCFA). Profiles in Adoption is an ongoing research project intended to explore the demographic characteristics and personal experiences of adoptive parents and adopted individuals.
Adoptive Parent Survey by NCFA
NCFA invites you to participate in a national survey of adoptive parents. This survey is Part One of the Profiles in Adoption Project and is intended for all adoptive parents*, regardless of how long ago you adopted or the type of adoption (intercountry, private domestic, and adoption from foster care). This research is intended to fill some critical gaps in adoption data that will strengthen the work of policymakers and adoption professionals and better support adoptive families.
We will make the results free and publicly available so they can be used to improve adoption education and training, to advocate for needed post-adoption resources, and to inform policymakers and other decision-makers as they craft legislation and policy changes regarding adoption.
Survey participants will have the opportunity to be entered to win one of 150 Amazon $25 gift cards.
*This project is not intended for stepparent adoption situations.
Research is about much more than just producing numbers and reports. NCFA believes in providing reliable information about critical areas of adoption research because good data is vital to strengthening and supporting the field of adoption and all who are touched by it.
