Interest in adoption is at an all-time high, and the issues surrounding adoption are as controversial as ever. From transracial adoption to single parenting, Adoption offers an insightful examination of adoption in the United States. This volume addresses topics such as who adopts children; costs and types of adoption; children with special needs including HIV-infected infants; domestic and intercountry adoption; the rights of birth and adoptive parents; and gay and lesbian adoption.

Adoption provides a comprehensive directory of organizations, associations and government agencies concerned with adoption, as well as facts and statistics, a summary of significant litigation, and print and nonprint resources. Anyone with an interest in adoption will find this to be an invaluable reference work—the first and only volume of its kind.
