The Alliance was formed in the early 1980's to answer a need for support and education among professionals who help parents facing unplanned pregnancies; those who recruit, prepare, and support loving, and nurturing adoptive and foster families; and those who ensure legally secure adoptions. The Alliance promotes high standards of practice and the ethical delivery of services to all parties.

The Alliance's advocacy efforts have included active involvement in revisions of the Adoption Act and legislation impacting adoption and foster care; advocating licensure requirements for adoption counselors; increasing awareness of and compliance with the Indian Child Welfare Act; promoting the federal adoption tax credit; and educating professionals and courts about implementing new statutes affecting domestic and inter-country adoptions and a public outreach program informing the public of the Putative Father Act.
