2002 National Adoption Directory Available
The National Adoption Directory (NAD) is a user-friendly, interactive online database that generates State-by-State (including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) contact lists and descriptions of adoption resources including public officials, public and licensed private adoption agencies, and support groups.
Updated daily, the NAD provides a valuable resource for adoptive families and people searching for birth relatives.
The database (and PDF version) is available online from the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse at http://www.childwelfare.gov/nfcad/index.cfm. A print version is available from the Clearinghouse for $25.00 by calling (888) 251-0075.
