About Us

In addition to our China programs, IAR seeks to educate the general public and policy makers about international adoption. IAR's "pink and blue" ribbon campaign in the media and lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C. help ensure that both orphans and prospective adoptive parents' interests are being promoted and protected.
