Children leaving out-of-home care for adoption or other family permanency require preparation and support to help them understand the past events in their lives and to process feelings connected to their experiences of abuse and neglect, separation, loss, rejection, and abandonment. Child welfare, foster care, and adoption agencies often assume that permanent families will provide the healing environment for these children and youth, and these agencies spend considerable resources to recruit, train, and support foster and adoptive parents to provide legal permanency and well-being for these children. While a high percentage of these adoptions are successful -- in that they are not legally dissolved -- both children and families often struggle or suffer from stress that might have been mitigated by better preparation practices for all parties. This book discusses services for children and youth to address their readiness and preparation for permanent relationships. It also explores research, intervention strategies, and resources to assist professionals in preserving connections among siblings; provides a factsheet for child welfare professionals who work with families interested in adoption and/or who are about to receive a referral or foster or adoptive placement; discusses ways to help professionals guide birth and adoptive families who are contemplating open adoption or who are already having postadoption contact; and is intended to support adoption professionals in addressing the needs for postadoption services and meeting common challenges in their delivery.

The purpose of this capstone paper is to answer the research question, 0́−How have Employer-Sponsored Adoption Assistance Programs impacted the workplace?0́+ Research was conducted by analyzing literature central to the fields of employee benefits, workplace commitment, organizational behavior, and social exchange as well as by performing a largely qualitative study based on surveys and adoption assistance materials. Six human resource professionals, who work directly with adoption assistance programs, and eleven employees, who have received employer-sponsored adoption assistance, participated in the study. A mixedmodel concept chart was devised to join relevant theories belonging to the aforementioned fields and survey questions were developed within the context of this framework. Conclusions were made after considering both the employer and employee adoption assistance processes. The inquiry found that employer-sponsored adoption assistance programs make a small, yet positive, impact on the workplace through the creation of a positive employer-employee exchange. On the other hand, the inquiry reveals that employees0́9 emotional attachment to their employing organizations does not increase as a result of adoption assistance. Research suggests that the modest financial reimbursement, insufficient paid time off, and lack of flexibility offered by organizations to adopting employees may inhibit the further development of this relationship. The initial goal for this research was to generate knowledge that would prove useful to adoptive parents lobbying for employer-sponsored adoption assistance. However, the best use for the results of this inquiry are as a stepping-stone for further research on family-friendly support within the workplace.

This practical book explains the process of adopting a child from Russia, from first contact with a Russian agency through bonding with the adopted child back at home. Karwowski provides a resource that parents can carry along as they navigate the paperwork, the home assessment, court hearings, medical exams, and financial components of what can otherwise seem like an overwhelming process. Herself the adoptive parent of two sons from Russia, the author also details common issues families face as they acclimate their new child to their home, family, and American culture. Aiming to break the process into manageable steps, Karwowski incorporates her own experience as a backdrop. Degreed in both psychology and sociology, she discusses sensitive issues regarding the child, which can include issues of abandonment, trust, and attachment. For all of these, she presents methods adoptive parents can use to see the signs and cope. She also addresses misconceptions commonly held about adoptions from Russia, the country to which she traveled four times across two years, to adopt her sons.
