IT DETAILS OUT THE PROCESS OF ADOPTION FROM START TO FINISH. A LOT OF RESEARCH WENT IN TO GIVE IT FLESH AND TO MAKE THE BOOK AND EASY READ FOR EVERYBODY. THE ISSUE OF ADOPTION HAS OVER TIME MOVED FROM PROVIDING A CHILDLESS PERSON WITH A CHILD FOR HIS CONVENIENCE TO CONSIDERING AS FOREMOST, THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD. CHILDREN ARE THE NEXT GENERATION AND AS SUCH SHOULD BE GIVEN A CHANCE, THERE IS NO OTHER WAY THAN TO GIVE SUCH CHILD A HOME AND PROPER GUIDANCE FROM A WILLING AND READY PARENT.
