Founded in 1982, AEA is the country's premiere national association of adoption professionals. We connect our members with their peers and contribute to their learning by facilitating the exchange of best practices. We welcome organizations (private and public), retired professionals and students to join the network. Please click here to learn more about membership. 

Mission Statement 

Because all children need families, the Adoption Exchange Association serves its members by stimulating innovative solutions, eliminating barriers, advocating, educating, and sharing excellent practice. Our central goal is to assist and encourage our members nationwide as they find adoptive families for all children and youth who wait in foster care.
