CWLA Standards of Excellence for Adoption Services

Adoption practice has changed significantly since the previous Adoption Standards were published in 1988, marked by such changes as far greater openness in infant adoption, greater awareness of the need to protect children adopted across national boundaries, and greater emphasis on promptly finding adoptive families for children in foster care who cannot return to their birth families.

This 2000 edition of the CWLA Standards for Excellence in Adoption Services reflects a significant departure from the previous adoption standards in at least two respects. First, much greater emphasis has been placed on making them equally applicable to both public and private, non-profit agencies and equally applicable to domestic infant, intercountry, and special needs adoption. Secondly, attention has been given to not only updating the Standards to reflect where the field of adoption has come in the last decade, but also to develop Standards that can guide the field over the coming decades.

Published February 2000. To obtain a copy, call 800/407-6273, or click here to order online.
