Free text In the editorial of this issue of Adoption Quarterly, On the Internationalization of Adoption Research, Practice, and Policy, the editor points to the expressed wish by participants at the August 1999 International Conference on Adoption Research held at the University of Minnesota, to promote a movement of adoption researchers, practitioners, and policy makers who would interact internationally in the interest of increased understanding of adoption. The editor, Gordon Finley, has begun collaboration in the form of exchange of information and experience with Malcolm Hill, editor of Adoption and Fostering, quarterly from BAAF (British Association for Adoption and Fostering) from the UK. In Successful Outcomes: A Follow-up Study of Children Adopted from Romania into the UK, the authors, Groothues, Beckett and O'Connor, conclude that the outcomes of the Romanian adoptions ( with children up to six years of age) were on the whole positive. In the section Legal Intersections: Minor Birth Mothers and Consent to Adoption: An Anomaly in Youth Law, by Jennifer Durcan and Annette Appell, the authors point out the inconsistencies in a legal system (USA) where a minor who "may not legally consent to sexual intercourse", nor may she seek medical help to achieve an abortion in case of pregnancy, but she may consent to the adoption of her baby and termination of her parental rights
