Description:
The number of applications for adoption orders made to the Board in 1988 reflects the continuing decline in the number of children being placed for adoption. Last year the Board received 714 applications for adoption orders. Not since 1960 have fewer applications been received in a single year. There was a further reduction in the number of applications relating to children placed by the registered adoption societies and the health boards, from 449 in 1987 to 417 last year. These cases accounted for just over half of all applications received in 1988. Family adoptions, on the other hand, accounted for an increased proportion of applications received and adoption orders made. In 1988 the Board received 279 such applications compared with 255 in the previous year. Of the 649 adoption orders made by the Board last year, 217 (33%) were for children adopted within their natural family. In 178 of these cases the adopters were the child 's natural mother and her husband.
