For whom?

On the website of the Councel on Accreditation, responsible for the accreditation of adoption agencies, I found the following snippet.

PURPOSE: Adoption Services establish a permanent family for children and youth awaiting adoption, and increase the well-being and functioning of birth parents, adoptive families, and adopted individuals.

I was wondering which child is really awaiting adoption? Isn't the COA mistaken and shouldn't it read "prospective parents awaiting adoption"?
