  • Of all children born to married parents this year, 50% will experience the divorce of their parents before they reach their 18th birthday.
  • For young parents aged 24 to 28, there is at least a 15% chance among both sexes that they will be clinically depressed.
  • 65% of parents who had a child while cohabiting will break up by the time their child is 12, compared to just 24% of parents who had a child while married.
  • According to a June 2011 report, there were approximately 408,400 children in foster care in the United States.
  • Over 107,000 children are waiting to be adopted.
  • The average child in foster care goes through three different placements and stays in the system for nearly 37 continuous months.
  • Around 64,000 kids have biological parents whose parental rights were taken away from them.
  • According to a 2010 study by the U.S. Census Bureau, 9.9 million mothers were either separated, widowed, divorced or never married.
