Abstract

Practitioner’s Keypoints Based on the reviewed research findings, this paper supports the following arguments: · overall, children adopted internationally can and do thrive in their adoptive countries; · such success is guaranteed by the high commitment of adoptive parents and the availability of post-adoption support services; · there is, however, a lack of evidence-based practice relating to interventions best suited to the needs of these children post-international adoption; · following a globally standardised process and strict protocols may help alleviate illicit activity in international adoptions; · existing guidelines must be tightened to ensure that children are the central focus in intercountry adoption and that their development is not affected by cross-border movement.
