How many adopted children are there in the US?
1.5 million

It is important to know that there are over one and a half million adopted children in the United States of America.  Believe it or not, these children represent 2% of the total number of children in the United States of America.  It is interesting to know that in 1995 about 500,000 women in the US were seeking to adopt a child.  Statistics show that children adopted internationally tend to be younger than children adopted from foster care.  Believe it or not, about 60% of the Americans have a personal connection to adoption.
