Adopted Children Speaking
British Agencies for Adoption and Fostering, 1999 - Adopted children - 161 pages
What do adopted children themselves think about the adoption process? Do they view their experiences in a positive or negative light? Do they feel their wishes are taken into account? These and many other questions are tackled in this unique study of the adoption process which is the first that has set out to document and comment on the experience of adoption from the view point of the children involved.
