September 2004Vol. 5, No. 7National Adoption Information Clearinghouse Announces New Website Design

The National Adoption Information Clearinghouse launched its newly redesigned website [Editor's note: This link is no longer available] on July 28. Using customer feedback, the Clearinghouse has enhanced its ability to quickly connect customers to the information they need. Changes to the website include:

  • Reorganization of the site around the needs of specific customer groups (adoption professionals; prospective and adoptive parents; adopted people; and pregnant women, birth mothers, fathers, and relatives).
  • Improved search features that provide more comprehensive lists of adoption resources on topics of interest.
  • Online ordering of hundreds of publications distributed by the Clearinghouse.
  • Easy access to State-by-State contact information for services such as adoption support groups, licensed private agencies, and State child welfare agencies through the National Adoption Directory.

In addition, customers have an opportunity to provide feedback through "Give Us Suggestions" and "Rate This Publication" features.

Customers may still contact Clearinghouse staff by mail, phone, fax, or email. The contact information remains the same:
