On average, a child will spend 32.3 months in foster care awaiting adoption. About 55 percent of these children have had three or more placements with foster care families, and 33 percent had changed elementary schools five or more times, losing relationships and falling behind educationally. This anthology provides your readers with an overview of important issues relating to adoption. It contains a collection of writings that, taken together, express a broad range of unique opinions on each topic. Each chapter presents an important question about adoption, such as Should adoptive and birth families be allowed contact with each other? and the opinions that follow are grouped into yes and no categories. By evaluating contrasting opinions, readers attain an objective knowledge of the subject. Fact boxes are included to summarize important information for researchers.
