The Utah Adoption Council was formed in 1981 by area adoption agencies to help lighten the load of the foster care system by advocating positive, permanent homes and families for foster children. The initial goals of the Council were to educate the community about adoption and promote awareness and understanding.
The Utah Adoption Council has expanded to include birth parents, adoptive parents, adoptees, adoption agencies, adoption attorneys and community support groups.
The Council is governed by an Executive Committee with a representative birth parent, adoptive parent, adoptee and agency representative.
