Summary "This book reports the findings of a Department of Health funded "catch up" study of a complete sample from one geographical area in England of 130 older children for whom a best interests decision was made in the 1990s. This design made it possible to see what happened to all children approved for adoption, to see for how many adoption was secured, and to track the progress of all the children through the care system. The study examined the children's early lives, the decisions made about them before the best interests recommendation, and the costs and delays in this process. Adopters and foster carers give their accounts of caring for the children, the financial and emotional costs to themselves and their families and the support they received."--BOOK JACKET.
