Free text Article from Adoption Studies Institute Newsletter pointing out the failings of the family preservation programmes and how children often end up, at best, missing out on the possibility of finding a normal family life through adoption, or in the worst of cases, suffering serious abuse from parents who will not really change their abusive ways, in spite of the extensive and costly programmes to rehabilitate them.
