New Adoption Statistics -- Placements

ICBF recently posted an update of their adoption statistics. Below is a summary of those statistics which were current as of April 30, 2010.

But first, for comparison, here are the final stats for 2009:

2,753 children of all ages placed for adoption

1,153 were placed with Colombian families

1,600 were placed with Foreign families

Here is what we can learn from these statistics:


#1 -- the number of children being placed for adoption seems to be stablizing around 2700 per year.

2008...........
2009............ As of April 30, 2010
2,542..............2,753......................895

#2 -- the number of Colombian families adopting children also appears to be stablizing around to between 1,000-1,100 per year.

2008...........2009.............As of April 30, 2010
1,019..............1,153......................363 -- with only 217 on the waiting list

Of the 895 children placed for adoption in the first quarter of 2010, 128 were placed by Casas Privadas de Adopción. If this trend continues, the Casas will actually show an increase in the number of adoptions following last year's increase after 7 years of declining placements.
