Adoptive Families, the award-winning national adoption magazine, is the leading adoption information source for families before, during, and after adoption.


Lansing Wood, co-editor of Adoption and the Schools, has been involved in the world of adoption since she first became an adoptive parent in 1982 and joined FAIR (Families Adopting in Response), and has been a leader in FAIR ever since. Trained as a social worker with a group work specialty, she also hold’s a master’s degree in social service administration, but derives her adoption expertise from her own blended family of grown adopted and birth children and the shared experiences of hundreds of other adoptive families and children. She serves as a state representative for the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC), and represented adoptive parents on the Governor’s Adoption Policy Advisory Council in California. Lansing is a master trainer for Kinship Center’s Adoption Clinical Training Program.
