Free text This monograph examines wrongful adoption in four parts. Chapter 1 reviews the historical and social context of adoption practice in relation to disclosure of children's health and other background information to PAPs. Chapter 2 discusses the cases that have shaped the tort of "wrongful adoption", applies "wrongful adoption" theory to international adoption, and discusses state statutes that set forth disclosure obligations. Chapter 3 discusses some of the key policy and practice issues that warrant close consideration in relation to disclosure of health and other background information. Finally, Chapter 4 provides recommendations to enhance agency’s abilities to implement quality practice in the area of disclosure of health and other background information and limit exposure to liability for wrongful adoption (adapted from the introduction)
