Photolisting is a publication that contains photos and descriptions (a paragraph or two) of children who are available for adoption. Photolisting can be online or in printed form. Photolisting is used by agencies and adoption exchanges to recruit prospective adoptive parents for children awaiting permanency.
Photolistings provide prospective adoptive parents a chance to search for children themselves. Photolistings are also a highly effective way to let Americans know that there aremany children in the U.S. that need adoptive families.
