The incidence of foreign adoptions from the nations of South America, Eastern Europe and Asia has greatly increased as a result of the drastic decrease in the number of adoptable babies from western nations. This work, written by adoption workers and legal scholars from twelve ""sending"" countries, presents details of those countries' adoption laws and procedures as well as international agreements governing foreign adoptions. This should be a useful referenece for potential adoptive couples, child care workers, legal experts and social service agencies.
