KEEPING THE PROMISE: The Critical Need for Post-Adoption Services

The Critical Need for Post-Adoption Services to Enable Children and Families to Succeed

Funded by: Harmony Adoption Services and

The Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute

This research-based report by the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute represents the most

extensive compilation of knowledge in the area of post-adoption services to date, and it‘s goal is unambiguously ambitious: It is to broaden the understanding of this critical issue by the public, professionals and policymakers – and to promote a commensurate realignment of state and national priorities and resources – so that effective, accessible supports for sustaining and strengthening adoptive families become a routine, ongoing reality. The bottom line is that best practices should entail not only helping to form families, but also enabling them to succeed.

This Policy Perspective was published October 2010.
