I like to search government websites to find statistics. I did a Google search for: race AND adoption

This will limit the search results to only goverment websites.

Here are some of the sources I found that might be helpful:

The Child Welfare Information Gateway: Persons Seeking to Adopt

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Who adopts? Characteristics of women and men who have adopted children

CDC: Adoption Experiences of women and men and demand for children to adopt by women 18-44 years of age in the United States, 2002

There is an older scholarly article on your topic in our database, JSTOR: On the path to adoption: Adoption seeking in the United States, 1988

Some other websites with adoption information:

I hope this helps!
