Adoption Institute Announces Partnership with Adoption Today Magazine

Adoption InstituteNEW YORK, October 28, 2011 – Adoption Today magazine and the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute proudly announced today that they are forming a strategic partnership to further their missions of improving the lives of children and families around the world through greater understanding of key contemporary issues in the realms of adoption, foster care, orphan care and child welfare.

As a result of this partnership, the Adoption Institute will gain a significant new means of disseminating reports about its cutting-edge research, commentaries on significant issues, and information about its programs, projects and advocacy initiatives. Adoption Today, in turn, will provide its readers with more and better knowledge about the range of topics on which the Institute conducts its unique work.

Richard Fisher, the publisher of Adoption Today (and its sibling publication, Fostering Families Today), said he views the partnership as a way to “give back” to the adoption community and feels that supporting the Adoption Institute is a “great way to do that because it’s such a vital player. The Institute is unique in its impact on policy, practice and real people. And it’s the most trusted source of research and advocacy in our field.”

To further the Institute’s work, for the next year Fisher will donate $2 from every new Adoption Today subscription to the Adoption Institute. Click here to subscribe or call 888-924-6736. “We’re very enthusiastic about the opportunity to share our work, our mission and our vision with such an important publication and, of course, with its readers,” said Adam Pertman, the Executive Director of the Adoption Institute. “We not only appreciate Richard’s generosity, but also know that he’s providing us with a wonderful opportunity to educate more people and, hopefully, improve more lives as a result.”

The mission of the Institute, which was founded in 1996, is to “provide leadership to improve laws, policies, and practices – through sound research, education and advocacy – to enhance the lives of everyone touched by adoption.” Since 1998, Adoption Today has strived to publish the most accurate, honest and timely articles to provide the adoption community with information to make quality, informed decisions regarding family formation and the well-being of children. To request an interview or to learn more about the two organizations, contact Pertman at 617-763-0134, or Fisher at (888) 924-6736.
