The number of domestic adoptions surpassed the total of Korean children adopted by foreign parents for the first time in 2007.

According to the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, around one-thousand-380 children were adopted domestically last year, several hundred more than international adoptions.

The institute attributed the change to Koreans' shifts in social perceptions of family and children.

International adoptions have been on a decline since 2001.
