Photolisting Children Awaiting Adoption
There are at least 100,000 children in foster care throughout the United States waiting to be adopted. An effective way for families to learn about children in foster care who are eligible for adoption is by “photolisting” them in books, newspapers, magazines, and newsletters, and on the Internet.
Lasting Impressions: A Guide for Photolisting Children is designed for adoption professionals and foster families who will be preparing children to be photolisted. It includes step-by-step instruction on how to write descriptions of children and take or arrange children’s photographs. The guide also covers best practices on sharing information about children that will be viewed through channels that everyone can access.
