Avery, Rosemary J.; Butler, J. S.
Adoption Quarterly, v4 n4 p19-46 2001
Studied characteristics of hardest-to-place children, factors related to timeliness in the adoptive placement of listed children, and the efficacy of photolisting updates in improving placement probabilities. Found that children experiencing significant delays in placement are most likely male, black, older at first listing, and possessing mild to severe psychological problems or multiple problems.
