``(a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
``(1) on the last day of fiscal year 2009, some 424,000
children were living in temporary foster family homes or other
foster care settings;
``(2) most children in foster care are victims of child
abuse or neglect by their biological parents and their entry
into foster care brought them the additional trauma of
separation from their homes and often their communities;
``(3) on average, children entering foster care have more
physical and mental health needs than do children in the general
population, and some require intensive services because the
children entering foster care--
``(A) were born to mothers who did not receive
prenatal care;
``(B) were born with life-threatening conditions or
disabilities;
``(C) were born addicted to alcohol or other drugs;
or
``(D) have HIV/AIDS;
``(4) each year, thousands of children in foster care,
regardless of their age, the size of the sibling group they are
a part of, their racial or ethnic status, their medical
condition, or any physical, mental or emotional disability they
may have, are in need of placement with permanent, loving,
adoptive families;
``(5)(A) States have made important strides in increasing
the number of children who are placed in permanent homes with
adoptive parents and in reducing the length of time children
wait for such a placement; and
``(B) many thousands of children, however, still remain in
institutions or foster homes solely because of legal and other
barriers to such a placement;
``(6)(A) on the last day of fiscal year 2009, there were
115,000 children waiting for adoption;
``(B) children waiting for adoption have had parental rights
of all living parents terminated or the children have a
permanency goal of adoption;

``(C)(i) the average age of children adopted with public
child welfare agency involvement during fiscal year 2009 was a
little more than 6 years; and

the last day of that fiscal year was a little more than 8 years
of age and more than 30,000 of those children were 12 years of
age or older; and
``(D)(i) 25 percent of the children adopted with public
child welfare agency involvement during fiscal year 2009 were
African-American; and
``(ii) 30 percent of the children waiting for adoption on
the last day of fiscal year 2009 were African-American;
``(7) adoption may be the best alternative for assuring the
healthy development of children placed in foster care;
``(8) there are qualified persons seeking to adopt such
children who are unable to do so because of barriers to their
placement and adoption; and
``(9) in order both to enhance the stability of and love in
the home environments of such children and to avoid wasteful
expenditures of public funds, such children--
``(A) should not have medically indicated treatment
withheld from them; or
``(B) be maintained in foster care or institutions
when adoption is appropriate and families can be found
for such children.''; and
