Description:
The Board received 438 applications for adoption orders in 1995. Applications for children being adopted within their natural family decreased from 286 in 1994 to 274 in 1995. These cases accounted for 62.55% 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 143 applications. The corresponding figure for 1994 was 173 applications. The Board made 490 adoption orders in 1995 compared with 424 in 1994. Family adoptions accounted for 297 orders, of which 276 (or 56.4% of the total orders) were made in favour of the child's birth mother and her husband. There were 143 (or 32.66% of the total orders) made in respect of health board and registered adoption society placements. The Board made six adoption orders under the Adoption Act, 1988. Further information on applications under this Act is given on page 9 of this report. During 1995 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 1995 the Board made six adoption orders for Irish children with special needs.
