Our Last Five Presidents Share their Wisdom on Adoption

Obama and Adoption
America is a country rich in resources and filled with countless caring men and women who hope to adopt. These individuals come from all walks of life, united in their commitment to love a child who is in need of the protective arms of a parent. We must do more to ensure that adoption is a viable option for them. By continually opening up the doors to adoption, and supporting full equality in adoption laws for all American families, we allow more children to find the permanent homes they yearn for and deserve. ~ President Barack Obama, October 30th, 2009

Bush W and Adoption
Through adoption, Americans can forever change not only a child’s life but also their own. ~ President George W. Bush, November 1st, 2002

Clinton and Adoption
Nothing should stand in the way of providing every boy and girl in America the permanent, loving home each of them deserves. Children are, after all, our country’s most precious resource and our most important responsibility. ~ President Bill Clinton, October 29th, 1996

Bush H and Adoption
As an unselfish, life-affirming, lifelong commitment, adoption is rooted in the virtures that define and strengthen a family and that, in turn, enrich the lives of individuals and the communities in which they live. ~ President George H. Bush, November 10th, 1992

Reagan and Adoption
