The Postadoption Experience
“By 2000, the number of foster children adopted in the United States had more than doubled in less than four years, and the numbers are increasing. For children unable to live with their biological families, adoption can provide the permanent, stable environment needed for healthy growth and development. Supporting families receives less attention than the adoption process itself.
