In response to this finding, it was announced on 4 June 2010, that a new national study be conducted, becoming the largest study ever for this country into past adoption practices.
The purpose of this study is to find out the current needs for individuals affected through past adoption practices. The study will focus on the long term impacts of past adoption practices, targeting:
- mothers, fathers;
- adoptive parents(and families)
- professionals involved in adoption practices (mid-wives, doctors etc).
Personally, I am looking forward to participating. I only hope some good comes from this study, and the results providing those who most need it with support and possible closure.
