Abstract

When children cannot safely return home from care, adoption provides legal security, love and belonging in a new family. But adoption also means that the child must be separated from a foster family where he or she has felt secure and loved, as well as from familiar routines and surroundings. In order to manage these losses, children of all ages will need the sensitive support and understanding of the adults around them before, during and after the move. This leaflet outlines six important principles for foster carers and adopters to hold in mind as they work together to help children to move to adoption.
