Free text This article reviews background, achievements, and unanticipated effects of permanency planning. It analyses family preservation services, family reunification process, kinship care and adoption concepts. It pays special attention to adolescents in foster care and to race and ethnicity factor. The authors affirm that the children who come to the attention of the child welfare system need an individualized response to their particular family situations. They assert that children need adults to attach to in order to experience relationships, become socialized, and grow to be functioning members of society. If, despite society’s best supports, the adults biologically related to the child cannot provide this nurturing, the best interests of the child and the society require that essential connections be made in other ways.
