At New Beginnings, we have proudly worked with the National Council for Adoption (NCFA), an organization committed to the belief that every child deserves to thrive in a nurturing, permanent family, for longer than we can remember. In honor of the NCFA and all they do to help children, birthmothers, and adoptive families, we want to shine a light on who they are and the history of the organization.
In 1980, the NCFA began as a project with a specific mission: to educate Americans about the downsides of a draft ‘Model State Adoption Act’. If passed, this act would have dramatically changed the nature of adoption in the United States. That project grew to what we now know as the NCFA, and they have continued to advocate for children, birth parents, and families since the 80’s. Under the leadership of Chuck Johnson, NCFA has continued to grow and is certainly recognized as the premier member organization for domestic and international agencies across the U.S.
As a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization, they help create and support sound ethical adoption policies and services for the past 32 years. They collaborate with member adoption agencies across the country to serve the best interests of children and advance adoption policies and practices that promote the best interest of children everywhere. Essentially, they are the big voice for all of the agencies out there, and we are happy to have them on our side.
We want to offer our thanks and appreciation for all they do for orphans and adoption across the world. For more information, you can visit their website.
