Featuring In-Depth Profiles

There are lots of kids who want to find permanency, but not enough families.

With In-Depth Profiles, we're changing that by collaborating with youth like Cooper. Youth who want to inspire and speak directly to potential adoptive families.

Northwest Adoption Exchange makes important connections between youth in foster care and potential adoptive families.

Our Approach


We feature youth using positive language that honors their story and celebrates their potential; because we all deserve to put our best foot forward.

Youth Driven

Youth voices are important. We search for innovative ways for youth to tell their stories to potential adoptive families.

Fiercely Optimistic

Our community can meet the need. We believe that every child can find the adoptive family they deserve.
