The Future of Adoption for Children in Foster Care: Demographics in a Changing Socio-Political Environment.
Journal of Children and Poverty, v3 n2 p33-61 Sum-Fall 1997
Explores the forces that will influence the number of children in foster care needing adoption and the number of families seeking to adopt in the next century. These forces are likely to challenge current policy and practice and place greater demands on the child welfare system that should be approached through a supply-and-demand perspective. (SLD)
