International Concerns for Children

An educational nonprofit organization that provides information and assistance-with a strong emphasis on international adoption-to families interested in adopting children. The organization is not an adoption agency; it provides referrals to licensed agencies.

The organization was founded in 1979 by Betty Laning, Anna Marie Merrill and Patricia Sexton, who currently serve on the board of directors.

The ICC publishes a listing of international adoption agencies located throughout the United States, the annual report Intercountry Adoption, which includes nine updates. The ICC also publishes a photolisting of children from other countries who are legally available for adoption, the ICC Listing Service.

The organization coordinates information with adoptive parent support groups and works to educate the general public on international adoption and related adoption issues.
