The section on the adoption process details the entire process: pre-adoption, placement and post-adoption. Pre-adoption topics include recruiting and retaining resource families, infertility and family engagement. Placement discusses parenting children from the child welfare system, working with birth parents, child development and attachment. Post-adoption includes post-permanency depression, disruption and dissolution, Act 101 and accessing community resources.
