Barth, Richard P.; And Others
Social Work Research, v18 n3 p139-48 Sep 1994
Used data on 496 children who had been in foster care before adoption to examine effects of child characteristics on odds that child would remain in long-term foster care and length of time for adoption agreement to be legalized. Age, history of abuse/neglect, ethnicity, and planned foster parent adoption program were major determinants of timeliness in adoption transitions. (Author/NB)
