NPR recently ran a good, albeit short, segment on their Morning Edition feature regarding the declining numbers in international adoption. It’s well worth the 7 minutes to listen.
From NPR’s page where you can find the segment:

The landscape of international adoption continues to change. If you are interested in pursuing an international adoption, check out Creating a Family’s Adoption Comparison Charts.
