"This volume explores the current issues surrounding adoption in the United States. Following a thoughtful overview of the topic, it presents a chronology that documents the milestones in adoption history and a collection of biographical sketches of individuals who have profoundly affected child welfare and adoption philosophies and practices. Readers will also find a selection of facts and figures as well as a discussion of important federal legislation and policies, a summary of significant litigation, and a directory of organizations, associations, and government agencies. A detailed listing of print and electronic resources rounds out a volume that students, parents, adoption agencies, social workers, and policymakers will welcome."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
