Free text In BAAF series of guides: "Listening to children and respecting their views... is central to life story books...For those children separated from their original families (these are) vital if they are to understand their past and have the chance of building a solid future.The review of adoption law...underlines the relevance of life story work. In balancing the interests of adopted people and their birth parents, openness is seen as a continuum, acknowledging that a child's feelings about contact may change over time."
