China and Russia adoptions are down

China adoptions to the US - 7,906 in 2005 down to 5,453 in 2007 - a decrease of 31%
Russia adoptions to the US - 4,639 in 2005 down to 2,310 in 2007 - a decrease of 50%
The overall decline has been consistent through 2005 - 2007 for the first time since 1992 according to the US State Dept. and 2008 will probably continue the trend. More reason to get involved in supporting indigenous orphan care around the globe.

We also have many needs at home with over 129,000 children in foster care available for adoption as mentioned in Jasons Kovacs' recent post on Desiring God. Ways to get involved - The ABBA Fund, Shaohannah's Hope, and many other organizations...
