    STAR RATING 4/5

    “The most useful book on adoption I have read so far” commented an
    adopter about the previous edition. This update loses nothing while
    adding new information on policy and legislation, writes Barbara
    Davis.

    The revised information includes changes in registration of
    adoption agencies, adoption support plans, the independent review
    mechanism in England, and the “preparing to adopt” course. Although
    there is little reference to legislation outside of England and
    Wales, there is still plenty of relevant information for adopters
    in Scotland or Northern Ireland. The book is easy to follow, well
    laid-out and answers the many questions that adopters ask.
