Description:
The Board received 529 applications for adoption orders in 1993. Applications for children being adopted within their natural family decreased from 296 in 1992 to 267 in 1993. These cases accounted for 50.5% of the applications received. Applications for the adoption of children placed by the registered adoption societies and the health boards continued to decline. These amounted to a total of 229 applications. The corresponding figure for 1992 was 297 applications. The Board made 500 adoption orders in 1993 compared with 523 in 1992. Family adoptions accounted for 222 orders, of which 205 orders were made in favour of the child's birth mother and her husband. The Board made eight adoption orders under the Adoption Act, 1988. Further information on applications under this Act is given on page 9 of this report. During 1993 the Board continued to recognise foreign adoptions under the terms of the Adoption Act 1991, the details of which are given on page 10 of this report. In 1993 41% of the adoption orders made by the Board related to applications where the birth mother was adopting with her husband. Birth mothers continue to express their dissatisfaction at the inadequacy in the existing law which makes no specific provision for such adoptions and does not reflect the reality of their continued parental relationship. The Board considers it desirable that the original parental relationship be recognised. This cannot be clone under the provisions of the Adoption Acts 1952 to 1991 and the Board would welcome a change in the law. For a number of years the Board has recommended changes in the law to take account of developing needs and to effect improvements in the adoption system. It considers the early establishment of a National Contact Register imperative to safeguard the interests of all parties and to regulate the increasing volume of enquiries both to the Board and to other agencies. The Board notes with concern the increasing number of private placements where the necessary safeguards for the child do not exist and again calls for action to be taken.
