Not all adoptions are forever. Some fail. Recent reports by NBC News, the Today Show, and Reuters focused on the devastating outcomes for some kids and families, but left unanswered how often adoptions fail, what types of adoptions are at the most risk for adoption disruption or adoption dissolution, and what to do to prevent them from failing.
Host Dawn Davenport will interview a panel of adoption experts: Dr. Trudy Festinger, professor at the Silver School of Social Work at New York University, and leading researcher on adoption disruptions; Stephen Hayes, adoption attorney who has handled over 3,500 adoption cases, including many adoption dissolutions, and a fellow and past Vice President of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys; and Regina Kupecky, psycho-therapist specializing in adoption and attachment,and co-author of Adopting The Hurt Child and Parenting the Hurt Child. adoption, adopting from foster care, international adoption, adopting older children, attachment disorders
