Summary
  • "Contributors to this volume provide multiple perspectives on the complex history and development of adoption in Australia and reflect on current issues in domestic and intercountry adoption. They discuss topics as diverse as celebrity adoption, intercountry experiences, gay and lesbian adoption and Indigenous adoption. Many write from direct experience as birth mothers, adoptive parents, adoptees, or as social workers in the adoption process. This is essential reading for those personally touched by adoption, those considering the adoption of a child, those working in the field, as well as students and researchers and general readers with an interest in Australian social and family life."--Publisher's website.
