Adoption Policy and Special Needs Children

By Rosemary J. Avery | Go to book overview
"Seeing the children progress mentally and emotionally and verbally."
"Helping adolescents who haven't had one find a permanent family."
"Placing children who have been previously rejected."
"Facilitating the placement for black children."
"Placing unadoptable Joey."

Satisfaction came from the recognition that they had assisted in providing children with the opportunity to have better their lives and that they had done something others thought could not be done. These are the real satisfactions of social workers.
