ICBF Show # of Waiting Families Per Year
ICBF has just published its 2011 year end Adoption Statistics Report. I thought I would start with a look at the number of families on the waiting list. While this report does not show the number of families waiting for each age group, it does show how many families are on the wait list for each approval year.
According to the report, there are 127 COLOMBIAN families (down from 151 last year) waiting for referrals. While there are 2,723 (down over 200 from last year) foreign families who are also waiting. Below is the graph that shows how many foreign families are left on the waiting list from each of the last 5 years.
