Abstract:

Cherry Harnott and Rosemary Robertson describe their findings during the surveillance of 35 children from overseas who entered Hampshire for the purpose of adoption between 1990 and 1995. This article emphasises the importance of screening the health and development of these children given the high number of unsuspected medical problems found, many of which were significant. It also identifies a number of key issues for adoption agencies to consider when preparing and assessing applicants for intercountry adoption, and the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach in helping to support the adopters in their task of caring for the child.
