Wrongful Adoption: Law, Policy, and PracticeBy:
The past decade has seen an increase in cases where adoptive parents fail to receive accurate or complete information about a child's physical, emotional, or development problem or about a child's birth family and history. In such cases, adoptive parents, confronted with extremely expensive medical care or mental health care, have sought assistance through the courts. Wrongful Adoption examines the issue in four parts: the history of adoption practice in relation to disclosure of children's health and other background information, cases that have shaped the "law" of wrongful adoption, key policy and practice issues, and recommendations for quality practice.
