Adoption Advocates International (AAI) WA


From webpage in May 2009

Adoption Advocates International was established in 1983 in Port Angeles, Washington. The founders envisioned an adoption agency that would serve children in need of adoptive families, with special emphasis children particularly in need of assistance because of geography, special needs, age, or the need to be placed in sibling groups.

AAI is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization licensed by the State of Washington. We can place children in nearly all states and with American parents living abroad.

AAI has placed children from many different countries. At this time AAI has programs in Ethiopia, China, Thailand and Ghana and is also placing children from the foster care system in Washington State with families located within the state.
