Legal Guardianship in Child Welfare: Key Facts and Concepts.
Simmons, Brian
Human Service Education: A Journal of the National Organization for Human Service Education, v21 n1 p33-43 Fall 2001
While adoption remains the most permanent of alternate homes for displaced children, it is not always a realistic alternative. Legal guardianship provides a permanency option between adoption and long-term foster care. This article contrasts permanency alternatives, gives an overview of legal guardianship, and provides definitional and historical information about guardianship relevant to practitioners. (BF)
