Gaining a family for life not only transforms the futures of children in care, but also brings benefits to childcare systems, communities and governments. In recent decades, some developed countries - in particular the US, England and Canada - have established permanency as a priority for children in care who are not able to return home. This compendium examines the child welfare research, permanency and practice across these countries to identify the policies and methods that facilitate the best outcomes for children
All children matter : how legal and social inequalities hurt LGBT families : full report( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report offers one of the most comprehensive portraits to date of the wide range of obstacles facing LGBT families in America. It highlights three major needs that every child deserves: stable, loving homes; economic security; and health and well-being. In each of these areas, the report outlines how current laws and social stigma create obstacles for LGBT families. The introduction's "A story of two American families," sums up the effects of unequal laws and social stigma by providing a case study of different outcomes for two families, one with lesbian parents and the other with heterosexual parents. Finally, the report offers detailed recommendations for eliminating or reducing inequities and improving the lives of children with LGBT parents. Where possible, the report also highlights how current laws and stigma harm children in other modern family configurations, such as those with unmarried heterosexual parents

"In keeping with its strategic priority to conduct work that improves children's prospects of living in safe and successful families, the Adoption Institute has conducted a four-year-long research project that culminates in the publication of this report. It reviews what is known about adoption by lesbians and gay men and presents new empirical data about their perceptions, experiences and needs as parents. Based on this knowledge, the Institute provides best-practice recommendations for improving adoption practice and for strengthening pre-adoption and post-adoption services for families headed by non-heterosexual adults."--Page 5

Safeguarding the rights and well-being of birthparents in the adoption process by Susan Livingston Smith( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The primary objective of this study was to learn as much as possible about the birthparents of adopted children in order to determine how laws, policies and professional practices affect them; what essential rights they should be afforded; and what reforms are needed to optimise their well-being. It found that contemporary relinquishing parents want to help choose their children's new parents through profiling, to meet the adoptive parents, and to have ongoing contact with or knowledge about their children's circumstances. The primary factor in achieving lower levels of grief, adjustment and peace of mind in birthparents is knowledge about their children's well-being
