Free text Commentary from the major social worker/social welfare periodical in the UK on the need for proper safeguards in adoption proceedings for children adopted from overseas. They argue that there are too many cases of fait-accompli presented to the court-appointed guardian ad litem as they come to cases where the child is already in a British family, having been brought to the UK without going through the official channels.
