    • About 2.5 percent of children in the United States are adopted.
    • 21.5 percent of adopted children are of a different race than their adoptive parent. This varies by state, from 8.4 percent in West Virginia to 42.5 percent in Alaska.
    • 29 percent of adopted children have health problems, compared with 12 percent of all children.
