Description: This book critically examines permanent fostering and adoption for children on minority ethnic origin, focusing on both 'matched' and trans-racial child placements. It reviews the relevant literature on ethnic and child placement and explores the similarities and differences between children born to two black parents and those of mixed ethnic origin.

Using evidence from a long term study of children placed with new families in the 1980s, the book considers different types of placements and discusses whether they are more or less likely to break down, and their impact on ethnic identity. It includes first-hand accounts from young people and their adoptive or foster parents. Finally, the book summarizes important factors in need of consideration when placing a child of minority ethnic origin, which include; choosing between foster placement and adoption; the nature of ethnic and adoptive identities; social work practice with black and white adoptive and foster families; issues of contact with birth family members. In conclusion the authors put forward recommendations for future recommendations for future policy and practice.
